It would possibly be off if it was away, where the Keepmoat will look a lot like a moat
 Are there any hints from anywhere that tomorrow's game may be rescheduled because of the floods?

 Spartan - fair point, and average attendances now and then even in L2/fourth tier are a bit of an eye-opener to compare it to. Also, these days there is more TV coverage of L1/L2 and even Conference.

Would have been unthinkable even just 25 years ago to have one or two live regular L1/L2 games shown live on telly, or even weekly live non-league.
 Also, everyone (press, media and others clubs fans) used to go on about how small our attendances were back then, but if you were to look at attendances up and down the country at other clubs at that time and compare them to more modern numbers, they were all a lot smaller than they are now.

 REPD - I think one of the main reasons for our (WFC) small attendances in the 70's and 80's and up until the premier league started was because we were a small club that came a long way in a very short space of time and the crowds needed to grow over a sustained period of time. Plus we were competing with big clubs with established fan bases that they'd built up over many years and unfortunately our local area is inundated with Chelsea supporters. Also as intimated by some of our fans, they had supported other bigger clubs before changing to WFC. I liked Spurs in primary school when I started getting into football because my best friend supported them and i didn't even know there was a team on my own doorstep. As soon as I realised WFC was my local club there was no turning back, even though they were only in the Southern league at the time.

 Pretty sure I wasn't the only one who didn't like the idea of dropping our old blue & white kit. Think the reason given for changing it was that too many other FL teams wore blue & white already.

 Managed to get to the Halifax game. Due to travel distance, didn't arrive til HT. Remember they had a ginger headed winger who was giving us a few probs.

 KT2 - many things about the whole Franchise move were tragic, but one of those was how back before then we were just starting to realise the potential of what support we could have
8th Nov 2019 13:25:59 
[143.lo.gg.ed] 
In other words, once we return home - and if we do it properly - we can start to become the club we arguably should be
 REPD - just saw the KFAQ ad on facebook and thought exactly the same thing. Used to bring my mates with me for those games at Selhurst (recall they always seemed to be against Barnsley), and a couple of those mates still like coming to KM with me when they can.

I was snared by the kids football course in the rec down the road, free home game ticket at the end of it. Did help that some family friends were ST holders and could drive me to Selhurst every other Saturday. But would recommend we start something like that up once at NPL. Fulham do it in my local area atm. Fck off!
 A4E - don't need to get the fitters sorted out until now

A smart move
 KT2 - yeah, we definitely managed to cultivate a lot of our current support back then, and a lot of them managed to stay the course through the whole WFC/AFCW changeover. Also proves just what a good marketing tool Kids For A Quid can be if you use it properly

 Aye you can count me as one. Became armchair fan in 1996, started going around 1998 - never seen a home game but never wanted anything else for Wimbledon more than i've wanted to see us play in Wimbledon.

 So the article on small businesses - does it mean they don’t yet have anyone lined up to fit out the new stadium? French polishers.....?

 REPD @ 11.05 - Reckon there is a fairly large contingent of early 30 somethings in our fan base that were picked up during the prem years (myself included). I always notice quite a few of those types wearing LBC / Elonex strips on match day.

Mine is sadly more like a boob tube on me nowadays. The Elonex / Lotto strip was a thing of pure beauty.
 Thought for this chilly Friday : if we hadn't been able to secure NPL, how many more opportunities would we have had to return home?

Given demographics (ie the majority of supporters pre-1991 are still here, and have the energy and knowhow), availability of the site, and those under 40 perhaps not having the motivation to "go home", this might have been our one big opportunity left. Thank fuck we took it.
