My 1st season as a proper Eagle, background being watching Wire all my life.
Wasnt sure what to expect, so, here’s my view so far.
On the pitch, really quite impressed. Good efforts week in week out, plenty of pace in the centres and on the wings, and an appetite for “lighting it up” whenever possible. Stand out annoyances being not starting until 15 mins in and dumb penalties all the time. Mr Aston must be pulling his hair out most weeks.
Off the pitch, shocking. No club shop on match days, no travel to away games- not even local ones, no proper weekly draw, a program which has no fixtures and results page, can’t hide from the cold wind on the bad days, seeing infirm away fans faces when they arrive, no junior or youth set ups, maybe I should stop there.
This isn’t a rant, just my honest view. I want The Eagles to progress, some of the above would generate money,,,, unfortunately I think the off the field stuff will be end of it all. Everyone at the club is friendly, match days are pleasant, we need the hot days to arrive.
In all honesty, I am not sure I will subscribe to another season at the OLP.
