Again no half-time draw tickets. Asked the lady and she said they sold out over 30 mins before kick off. Reckons she could have sold another £30 worth at least. I have only been able to buy a ticket twice this season. Money for nothing.

PLEASE GIVE THE PROGRAMME SELLERS TWICE AS MANY HALF TIME DRAW BOOKS AS YOU DO NOW.

After the game, there were people outside waiting for the club shop to open, but no it was shut. I went inside to see four people in the office. Of course there are things to do, but could not one person open the shop? More money thrown away. If the club think the money is tight, they are throwing money away.

I experienced the same thing. Arrived at 2.45pm and no half-time draw tickets left.

No plastic glasses at half time is a joke.

I was told the bar manager is away....so!!!!

Sunny day, people drinking, shouldn't that be a win win for the club?

I think somebody might have mentioned it before, but isn't there a way we could stock the plastic bottled stuff the dogs sell. They always seem to shift thousands and they are easy to chill and quick to serve so reducing queuing time. Surely worth trying ?

The Craven situation is baffling to say the least. Dale Morton has been The Rams standout player this season. Fev will be on the case no doubt.

It's possible. James Craven was indeed in the royal suite at half time and drinking coke - from a plastic glass. He was being pressed by a few supporters on his non-inclusion and demonstrated a dignified diplomacy that I might have struggled to manage - very professional young lad I thought. Akaidere was also in there looking big and fit - surely he should have been given a chance yesterday given that the Barrow wingers are neither tall or fast.

But at the end of the day, the club are losing money through an inability to organise themselves to

Sell beer
Sell raffle tickets
Sell merchandise by opening the shop

None of this is difficult.

Fundamental in fact. Surely someone actually cares?

Can't be that hard up for money can we when we do this.. Useless! To think all 3 of these happend is criminal and someone who's getting paid by the club needs telling, do job right or get gone! Voluntary staff at other clubs around league do this free of charge and do a better job!
