Thankyou. I apologise for calling it ridiculous. I do think its stretching it a bit though
I think perhaps the most valid reason for fans not going to games particularly from a Swinton fans perspective is on the same weekend;
1 City were in the FA cup final which you could watch for free
2 United were getting the cup which you could watch virtually free in most pubs
3 the weather was rubbish
4 good quarter final on tv for free
Why would Swinton fans travel to Batley to see us get a certain hammering? Spend at least £50 -60 .
Its because we are mad.
I suppose the same reasons are valid for Batley fans.
Id love our club to be in the same position as yours. Nice little ground in your home town. Good competitive team. Its a pity the Batley public arent appreciating the rare good times while they can.
I agree, which is my point above, we must try to widen our appeal. We have a great product at the Mount, but for some reason the supporters do not come. I have given you reasons for a few of our supporters not to come, which is perhaps the most frustrating you can get. It's surreal that they do not want to come because they expect us to win! They obviously have short memories. There are obviously other attractions that appeal more, or they simply have no idea that we are here!
