I personally cant see where the "clique" is or why the T.R.U.S.T is getting a hammering?
Everyone & Anyone can join and they are are not sheep that agree with each other on everything , nor are they brainless(bit unfair).
Lets just all get down there and support the boys and get through these dark days together.

The worse thing is that he must have put it on the site Very Happy (probably after he had a few Beer 's)

Worth a try, but wouldn't hold your breath, I don't think Sky and Murdoch really give a sh*t about little non league clubs, other than patronising us (not us obviously, as it's been 20 odd years since I watched us play Merthyr in the 1st round, and nothing since) when it comes to the FA Cup 1st round day!!!
I hope i'm proved wrong and they do a piece on it at Sky, not that i'd get to see it though, we have Foxtel Wink

I wasn't shooting you down, or certainly didn't intend to, I was just making a point (and this is only my personal view) that the likes of Sky, the national newspapers, BBC etc etc.. don't care about the likes of us, but like you say, atleast you've got off your arse and done something, and if we do get a mention it would be great!!!!

The most important thing in all of this is REDDITCH UNITED in a pure and simple way. the club cannot be allowed to die. You only have to look at other clubs, Kiddy on the verge of administration, Windsor and Eton wound up with debts of £300,000, leyton expelled from Ryman League for non payments I suspect the decision Ken had to make was one of the hardest he has ever had to do, but at least by doing this we will still have a club to follow every saturday

To be honest with you, Ken has gone up in my estimation with this decision.

OK, we will finish bottom of the league...but I have a feeling of 'at last!'....in previous seasons we would have promised players money we never had and finished the season owing players thousands of pounds....thank god that has stopped for the long term viability of RUFC.

As a fan, it is really hard to see what is happening on the field...but at least we can hold our heads high, knowing the club has had a massive reality check and is now living within it's means.

Now the Chariman needs to act to gather all ideas and chose what we are going to do.

My advice:
Free entry for the Gloucester game (I will personally sponsor this game to help).
Pub crawl/bucket collection with players (in tracksuits) and fans around Redditch...introduce the Reds to the youngsters of Redditch.
TRUST stall in Kingfisher Centre.
Letter to all Premier Clubs (I am doing this as we speak).
Score predictor.
Call Man U for a preseason in a Jimmy Davis memorial.

Just by doing these 6 things will make a big difference. Just focus on a small list to get the biggest impact.

I will start to be more active from here as things settle down...I am starting with Reddit with support of Joe & DJ.

Keep the heads held high.

Yeah that's the way to do it, work through this list will be a huge boost. I am going to concentrate on the club house (artwork,tidy and gigs) and make it a bit more inviting.

Redsfan,
It was noted at the TRUST meeting the bad language had increased.I'm pleased to inform you on Saturday there was no bad language at all.I hope it stays that way. Football is a game of emotions, sometimes it takes over people. I should know I fell in love on Saturday.
Having listened to far worse abuse and foul language at our ground in recent years, I'm proud of the efforts made to curb it.

By all accounts the atmosphere was alot worse before we tried to clean it up a bit... see nevergreens comment...

There is a Family Stand where swearing is prohibited and won't be tolderated... we can try and harbour bad language, but we can never eradicate it completely!

Passion and Frustration i think.

If you don't agree with the banter, then maybe being down at The Valley just isn't for you. I doubt it's gonna change, love. Or you could use the family stand.. After all, that's what it's there for Smile

I doubt he was as the incidents are the wrong way round for a start, the c word was used once(big deal) and the kid got told off for it.
The swearing thing happens at every ground in the country and you can hear it on the t.v when you watch a game its called atmosphere, the players swear,the coaching staff swear. The kid will never watch a game based on that notion and be wrapped up in cotton wool.
Swearing is not a huge issue at Redditch anyway its just bit of emotion, this was just one of the moaners TRUST bashing as usual and trying to get other people to side against TRUST IMO.I'd rather my kids watch Redditch than the stuff they can now watch on t.v and they may learn that people are different and have different emotions/passion, ITS CALLED LIFE.

I can assure you I was there Jeff, and in fact it was you I think baiting the Stalybridge fans as you walked around (stewards got involved) then you came around to stand close to the seated area. Please don't patronise me, all i want to do is go and watch the football-not you lot

Sorry I was not trying to patronise you, You are correct with regards to the Stalybridge Fans, They said something I did not like and like you I remonstrated with them(and in hindsight I should have left it, I made a mistake and I apologised for this right after the game).And yes when I came to stand by the seated area there was swearing(f-word,tosser etc.) at the linesman by Redditch Fans that stand there most Games? As has been said there was NO swearing on the ceadar road at the last game and we will endeavour to keep it to a minimum as passion is passion. I also expect to be dealt with in the right way by the club if I do something wrong as rules are rules.
So to all I have offended I Apologise. Embarassed
