Considering we now have almost 10.5 Thousand season ticket holders, and a better rental, F+B deal etc, will this be reflected in added budget for MR in January or can we expect to see this Next summer?

Also with Hamer and OHare being our prized assets are there talks under way to get them to sign up for at least an extra year as soon as possible, and learning from the mistakes the owners have made in the past when the likes of Gunnarsson, Westwood, Dann etc all left on a free?

When will the fans get the update on the new stadium which was promised early this year?

What has to be achieved with the new stadium project by the end of the year in order for it to remain on track?

Have the club collected any data on the spread of coronavirus at home games?

probably not the forum, more of an idea than a question.. but it would be nice if the club could put out videos introducing new signings. would be an opportunity to get the definitive pronunciation of some of the names from the players themselves!

its painful hearing Gok-er-res, Jock-er-rez, Yok-er-ez or Ham-air, Hammer and Har-mer. Some even try flower up Dado to Dah-bo

Clive could do them or oggy

On that point did anyone else hear him say Moore could have done better with the initial save for the second goal!!!!!!!!

Clive pronounces it as yokeres and it annoys me. Should be yerkeres.

Then again, that is probably the least of his worries. Pretty sure he got his own name wrong the other day.

Scott Dann went for around £3.5M to blues I thought.

Not sure Westwood and Gunnarsson wanted to stay and were offered contracts to extend but refused?

Hopefully C'oH and Hamer wanna stay if they were both offered new deals.

Anyhow, the ale bar's are open on match day, so I'm happy....

Why isn't there any discounts for season ticket holders at Sky Blue Tavern. I went in there for the first time last night with 3 mates at 8pm. We were the only ones in there til close. The place is going to die on its arse

What is happening with ticketing? Are the problems we have had due to our low staffing numbers or is there a problem with Ticketmaster - if so how has this happened and how will it be addressed? As the season moves forward can we try to get away tickets on sale earlier, so that tickets reach general sale at least a week ahead of any match?

Appreciating that any potential changes to catering would need to be discussed and agreed with Delaware North and / or Wasps, is there an opportunity to maximise income for all partners and reduce queues through pouring pints in advance of the half time rush?

Could advance volumes be based on a proportion of minimum levels of orders from previous games after taking account of likely variances in attendances and prepared a reasonable amount of time in advance of customer peaks?

Echo what Twist and shout said about more social media engagement. Some ideas.

1. Tictok videos of the lads training (England did this reasonably well during the Euros).

2. Monthly podcast with a player or member of staff.

3. Crossbar challenge style video

4. Quiz the players 1 v 1 on football and funny trivia and film it.

There are lots of clubs doing this stuff really well we just need to plagiarize the best bits.

Junior Sky Blues will their be a Christmas event this year. Kids are growing up not being able to have pics with their hero's. I know that pales into insignificance vs the pandemic but it would be good to do something even if it's pics with sky blue Sam.

Could the club invite registered JSBs and Members for an open day at the training ground pre booked with supporter number and proof of ID required

For live TV coverage, can we have the main TV cameras on the opposite side of the pitch so we can see that there are actually some fans inside the stadium? As it is, the stadium looks empty. Hardly a good advert for CCFC matchday experience.

Maybe best to speak to the ground owners on that one.

There is a strong feeling now that we are in the Championship that a few more 'admin type staff' would help and more than pay for itself in terms of services.

I'm thinking post the Reading game, calling everyone directly who bought a ticket and trying to get them to commit to the next home game. Sure this sort of thing would easily pay for itself...

YES THIS! always thought it was stupid putting the cameras facing the prawn sandwich stand. looks empty even in the rare times there has been a near full crowd. not sure of the set up but switching the cameras to the opposite stand would look a lot better.

Would it be possible to have more social media content for sky blues fans? This may help Encourage younger fans to support CCFC aswell. Things like interviews , challenges etc more often would be appreciated
Yes, they do a good job answering fans but I find the output media wise generally lacking compared to other clubs. They used to upload the U18 and U23 goals, don’t know why they stopped that…if they don’t have the staffing levels for away games, they could liaise with the other clubs?

Im guessing this is down to how the stadium was built and can’t be changed now. Also TV companies love a long lingering shot of the subs bench or directors box so probably wouldn’t want it.
