so who's fault is it that we have had a fall in attendances?
Well you can't blame the prices because when they do lower them, there is no change.
People have lost interest it seems, which is sad.
I do think many stay away due to Sisu, so i will blame them.
Sisu have created the whole Mess ............
Poor product, poor demand.
Too be fair I would put that down to the manager?
Blame Fisher and CO, 100%
Do not go to games anymore and will not go again till they leave.
Doing other things to do at weekends, Leamington some weeks, at least they try.
I am one of those who has probably just given up the fight.
So would I. (With a big helping hand from our owners of course)
I don't think its one thing, the club as a collective has to take ownership of falling gates.. Decision's made throughout the club effect a fans decision to turn up, as once the habit of going is broken you have to have something positive to make you go back..And at the minute positive is not on the horizon also fans need hope and to me that hope is sliding away with every poor result.. So some might say results are be all and end all, but for me its to simplistic and to easy not to look deeper into the why's..
The owners set the tone and the environment. They design the business stratergy. Ultimately they employ the people to make their strategy work.
No one else can be blamed, they hold corporate responsibility for the shape the club is in.
We have already had a survey like this - the trust did it. Its all SISUs fault apparently, so there. Feel better now?
they dont play the fucking matches though do they?
Does it matter? isn't the main thing how do we get out of this bloody deep hole that keeps getting deeper?
crowds wont start to recover until we are consistently winning games and challenging at the top not bottom of the table
No but they set the budget, sign the players and make decision's about the manager they expect to create a good product.. They do set the tone but players and manager a like are responsible for results, if you are answering the question as the result is why.. I think you make a case for the club having no hope, no future and current history makes it hard to get the gates turning in the correct way...
The owners and the manager. Don't blame the fans. Voted for the owners on the poll though
Whoever was blowing that fookin whistle at Sixfields..... (no, I don't mean the ref..)
Yep, Manager and owners. There is only so much fans can stomach. And it's not just form, its the Wasps thing and the lack of any hope for the future.
Neither does SP to be fair.
so you blame the players? Okay
Who employed them?
OWNERS !!! NO INVESTMENT!!! NO VISION!!!NO INTREST!!! NO FUTURE!!! NOW FUCK OFF AND LET SOMEONE ELSE HAVE A GO AT TURNING OUR CLUB AROUND. rant over !
Can we have a 'Mainly Fisher of the Owners' option, as everything that clown seems to be involved with turns to rat shit very quickly, and of all the complete helmets that SISU have employed/or are employed by, he seems to invoke the most passionate hatred.
It's a bit of everything isn't it.
Not absolving SISU of blame but we were heading to League One before they arrived.
We'll never know about that will we, what's for certain though is that it didn't take them too long to ensure it anyway and once relegated the pursuance of the cost cutting downward spiral is now threatening yet another drop !
Apparently it does matter keeps coming up on here at a regular basis only posted it due to it coming up today on another post.
Yes but now we are heading for league 2
I knew it was my fault. my missis said so:whistle::whistle:
I voted 'Other' - a combination of Owners, Manager and Players (not in your list).
Sisu have prime responsibility - they have been destroying our club for years and I see no end to it. Understandably, they lead the poll by a mile at this point.
I believe that Pressley has many good attributes as a Manager but when things are going as badly wrong as they have this season, he has to take a large part of the responsibility.
The players have failed to 'show up' either individually or collectively on far too many occasions this year - not just this season. While the performance against Worcester City was truly shocking, so was the first half against Peterborough, the game at Crewe, large parts of the match with Crawley etc. etc. Compared to most supporters, these young men are well paid; they are so-called 'professionals'; the very least we should be allowed to expect is that they put in a shift in every performance. Is it any wonder that, with such poor attitude, many of them are surplus to requirements at their previous clubs or at the ones that have released them on-loan.
I cannot apportion any significant blame to the fans. The people who turned out for the Gillingham game and haven't been seen since are (mostly*) not real supporters, just curious by-standers. As for everyone else who is losing heart, in all the circumstances it is difficult to blame them. It could be me one day - not yet I hope.
(* I recognise that there are a few who have very genuine reasons for not being able to go since the first game back at the Ricoh.)
Oh you got me there.

Unless you identify the cause(s) how do you start to turn things around? So I think it does matter. The bigger question for me is do we have the ability as supporters to change anything for the better? Or do we have to watch helplessly as we fall further down the 'bloody deep hole'?
If Sisu are considered to be the major cause of our problems, how can we change them, either by improving them or replacing them? The return from Sixfields was certainly brought about in large part by fan actions, so maybe we can influence change for the better now. One for the Trust to consider perhaps.
SISU create the sh!tstorm that puts people off and the product is often poor. But attendances are fan related and its their loyalty and patience that have caused low attendances. Pompy in L2 have had a faster and more painful fall from grace than CCFC, (granted no exiled home games) but they have solid supporter numbers. Are their fans just better than ours?
They supply the tools for the manager ie loans and freebies that nobody else wants. They need to spend some money big time Oops
that bit's a joke that will never happen.
Same here, chose manager because I think he has the most direct input on our style and results.
It's simple. performance.
If you win a few on the bounce then support will increase and if you lose a few on the bounce then apathy sets in. The team takes the blame for this. There are 11 players v 11 and while the manager has influence he does not kick a ball. So the players are ultimately responsible.
