What is your role in the club’s media output, Laurence?

MAD - 1) The club has an intern, which fits that parameter to a degree. There are so many rules laid down by both the FA and EFL. What the club did when Chris Atkinson handled twitter, could not be done today. 2) I rather suspect the club do that already and will do more in the future. I will be chatting with West Ham people myself to continue the conversation we started in August - would have loved an away tie, so we could see their complete set up. Presently watching Brentford very closely as they move nearer and nearer completing on Lionel Road. Good blueprint in my view. 3) See 1 above about parameters and rules. I love Ray's tweets and mickey taking, and would love to see the club do the same. However ......... EFL and FA would regularly be calling asking for explanations, I rather suspect. In my view, we do not do enough through social media to drive more traffic to the club shop. I am always putting suggestions forward. 99 out of 100 rejected no doubt. Here is the point though, I do not kick my colleagues (many in here seem to delight in their bullying), I have conversations and see if we can find a new and better way forward. Keep the conversation civilised would be my request.

Wally is carrying the club on his back. ‘Win a few wally then they’ll forget the rest
morning troops. Not only have the giant cork-screws moved yesterday but I have in front of me the first few tickets with "D.W. Hill Piling, c/o Galliard Homes, Plough Lane" on them :-))))))))

soon be time to retire my BELOVED 1999 Sony Ericsson w890i Dinosaur-phone and get out the S5 that was kindly donated unto me by a member of this parish and bunk in with one of my lorries to take some snaps space
Morning all. Good to see that a few decent results has eased the mood in here. ;-)

well LL, on your ‘we don’t have a pot to piss’ maliaise, would suggest those failing at conveying info quickly across all mediums to engage with the widest possible audience 1. Sit with some teenagers for a few hours 2. Take note of how other clubs communicate within similar parameters and 3. Maybe look at Kent Wombles social media which knocks the clubs dross out the park

In short, sharpen up - not hide behind a lack of training on social media when social media existed long before the current incumbents arrived
MAD - care to suggest some links for social media training, please?

BTW I am not comparing us to a premier league club, just pointing out the disparity.
I offered to write some comms for the Club and they declined so they only have themselves to blame.

Do we have to always revert to non league peasant status when all that’s required is to sharpen the fuck up👌👌👌
A few years back I sent Slavin a complimentary and supportive email regarding an article he’d written. He replied looking for a fight - “that’s just your opinion” - completely misinterpreting where I was coming from. Together with displaying his lack of knowledge regarding the history and traditions of the club.

Have endeavoured not to read or look at anything authored by him ever since. The bloke’s in the wrong job.
There's also a lot to say about the transfer window being used to unsettle players, the rumour mill is literary a mill stone around the neck of getting deals done. In the old days when you coilf transfer at any time until March, you could "BUMP INTO" a player and chat about coming to our club without being obvious about what was happening. These days and the windows means there's so little time to waste that a cloak and dagger approach is the best way forward. Its surprising how a few loose words can kill deals, not just transfers but in business generally.

Couple that with the need for the fix of instant news, the world has suddenly lost the art of being patient. No news is good news I'd say, having to scratch around for meaningless stories to appease people is the best you're going to be getting in the short term until all deals are confirmed
Dean - well said too. A lot of what the club does is constrained by lack of facilities and income. We are about to play West Ham. Their Comms and Editorial team is now 16 strong (seem to remember there were only 11 in August 2018) with full time staff. Ours is now five with one full time member of staff. In addition to that they have a PR agency, a marketing department, a commercial department and so on. Scroll down within this link: [Link] Plus they have two Directors, who focus on this, so that is 18 people.

Well said Mikey, as for others moaning about the website and social media, that may be down to club restraints rather than the journalists? Have the club ever sent either of them on any social media training for example?

Wtf! All missing the point. I'm sure these people are lovely, but the fact is our media content isn't nearly up to scratch when you compare if to clubs around us. Like people are saying here, we have so much potential we just don't use.

If you think the problem lies in the fact we have someone with an accent doing interviews... Well I don't know what to say quite frankly...
Agree with you Meadow,I can understand Stanley Unwin better than the scouser.

Chris Slavin is a lovely bloke. I've chatted to him numerous times and even been interviewed by him. However, his accent grates on me big time and that's probably down to my intolerance rather than anything else. Video interviews by Rob C and match reports by Chris please?
12th Jan 2019 00:52:25 
[92.lo.gg.ed] 
Sorry Chris.
Personally I think it's great that the clubs added instructions. Every cup match people complain about the difficulties in using the platform. Now that they give more advice they get criticised of the need to issue instructions.

Sure the system isn't perfect but credit is due where things are improved upon.
Saw Ryan Taylor of Fleetwood for the first time since last Saturday... he said that Joey Barton was fuming with them for losing to us, saying they should not be losing to teams like us at home (didn’t wind him up by saying that was the second time this season) ....

Re CRM. The fact that the club has to send out a lengthy email to explain methodology to buy a ticket says it all. The system is crap!

Downes is careful not to give too much away, that’s all. In stark contrast, Ardley seemed to treat interviews like a therapy session and poured his heart out.

You are a gentleman.
YW - who says Wally “struggles” when interviewed by Chris? He gives that style of interview with most people from what I’ve seen so far, even BBC London’s Alan Seabrook who usually manages to get a pretty good talkative tune from everyone. Meanwhile, for the time being, Connolly just seems a tad lost & camera-shy - which should improve in time - the giveaway sign is when they give pretty similar & truncated (perhaps slightly stuttering) answers, despite being asked a variety of questions - nothing to do with the interviewer. Then again, I know you’re desperate to put the boot in on your usual grudge figures within club media at every opportunity (referring to them by their surname, how impolite) and then using your usual bullying techniques to get people to agree with you by aggressively questioning their opinion and/or labelling them blinkered, even to Stuart, one of the fairest-minded on here & one of very few posters who has any time for you. (No doubt I’ll now get the usual bitchy name-calling - or even worse recently, find out you’ve been slyly contacting people on FB to get them to come on here & help fight your battles.)
