It would be nice to have an update on that answer, though, to see whether they've actually discussed it.

Card tech isn't expensive at all, and the pros definitely outweigh any cons.

They said card tech meant they had to replace every till. Will see if there's an update :up

It looks like most of them need replacing anyway, have just seen two with half the plastic surrounds missing.

Clappers.

1. Which tit thought they'd be a good idea in the derby?
2. Why were they fecking claret and blue
3. Why were stuards allowed to walk up the tilton taking them off fans and seats at half time?

Complete shambles.

1. If we didn't have mindless tits as fans, it would have been a fine idea.
2. They weren't, the sponsor logo on the back had a colour gradient going from blue to reddish-pink.
3. Because the mindless tits couldn't be trusted with them.

Some positive responses to concerns, particularly with regards to e-ticketing. It would be nice to - eventually - have it rolled out across all tickets and season tickets, allowing fans to simply have their mobile to hand. Modern tech - yay!

There certainly does seem to be a greater engagement with fans than in previous years, although to be fair Yeungs only method of communication in previous years has been carrier pigeon from his cell

From Rachele Johnson, BCFC Supporters' Liaison Officer:
Quote:
The next Quarterly Supporters' Forum will be taking place on Tuesday 27th February at 6.30pm in the Jasper Carrott Suite.

As discussed at the forum in December with WMP there will be attendance from representatives to discuss how the Villa game went. It’ll be a small discussion at the beginning as I don’t imagine the police want to be there for the whole forum. As the Villa game is the 11th it wouldn’t be the easiest thing to get questions ready to present to them but I imagine it’ll be more of an open discussion than a structured Q&A.

If you have any queries please let me know ??

Please also send in all forum questions no later than 5pm Wednesday 21st February.

RE the villa game.

Why is it other police forces are able to deal with much bigger away followings for local derbies (Celtic v Rangers, Man U v Man city etc) yet we are still restricted to just over 2k?

I may be wrong on this too but as I understand it under 5s get a free season ticket with a full paying adult in family stands - a great initiative but is it possible to roll thus out for individual match days? Even if only a few games a season?

Some clubs have 'mini season tickets, usually 5-8 games throughout the season - allowing fans that can't afford to or commit to a full season to guarantee there seat for x amount of games of their choice.
Is this something Blues would consider?
A 5 game ticket consisting of 1 A game , 2 B games and 2 C games of their choice for £100 for an adult in the tilton (saving £20 based on match by match prices) is something that could possibly work?

The 2k is a combination of previous crowd trouble, the fact Villa won't offer more and the transport infrastructure. I'll still ask though :up

Ticketing is a good question :up

Thanks Azza mate :beer

Sent this today. Anything extra can be sent later. ..

At the Millwall match, programmes weren't available outside family stand 30 minutes before kick off. Perhaps sold out? Sometimes they're offered on the touchline but not at this match. Again, maybe they sold out? Can the club make sure they're always available or at very least ensure spares will always be sold in club shop right after match?

Food supplies HAVE improved. Don't seem to run out of individual items so often.

Lots of fans didn't get mail-out advertising Huddersfield cup tickets. Missed opportunity?

Plenty being said about ffp and the reasoning behind our lack of transfer activity. Are the two linked?

When Cheick Ndoye got his sending off against Villa, it appeared there was a case for John Terry and Jedinak to be booked but nothing happened. Did the club look at this incident? Obviously can't appeal the sending off but we could ask the FA for consistency.

Could the club look into a registration scheme where registered users could anonymously report bad language, violent conduct, flares or 'away fans in the home end'? Obviously the registration (perhaps linked to season ticket) would help prevent false allegations and the report could be used in the first instance to help stewards and/or police so no promises need issuing (just because a st holder reports the person in front the club doesn't have to eject them). This would remove 'stigma' and fear of reporting incidents which have to be done in the open at the moment.

Great campaign for Chinese New Year. Perhaps run it every year with more prizes? Announce in advance and more will come to that match.

Blog on Supporters' Forum

Likely be swallowed in the wake of Cotterill's departure (assuming it's confirmed) but I can't delay it indefinitely, and I did type it up to be posted.
:lol :up

Next Supporters' Forum is on Thursday 7th November. I can't make it due to taking my eldest daughter to see Little Mix that night. Any items you'd like raised on the evening's agenda, please pm me or comment below by Monday 4th and we'll send them to the club. Hopefully, Kev can send a representative of the forum/blog in my stead...

Russ
