    Well I think the Football Club committee should show sympathy & solidarity with the Trust & adopt 'two-tiered' pricing...one price in advance and a higher one on the day, as already done by clubs such as Chelmsford City & Bromley... ;)

    Could be a higher price for trust members? :thumbs:

    Or maybe a discount for those that used to go to Kingstonian?

    The St Leonard's to Pevensey & Westham leg is operated by Southern, so that's an additional £5.90 for a day return. Still saves around a tenner on the full day return price from London Bridge.

    Disclaimer: my match day going for a variety of reasons is limited right now, but I also believe a two-tier price structure for the coach is a bad idea.
    The Trust do some great things, and giving up personal time to volunteer for the Trust and work on match days etc is very much appreciated.

    But, on a coach, you really should all just pay the same, it shouldn't, to me, be a benefit of Trust membership.

    Mike mentioned something to me Sunday (I was working Saturday at a Conference) that I should also state! A few people asked him why I "don't like" Forward the Hamlet.
    This isn't true in anyway, especially the brilliant podcasts, which offer up a real eclectic mix, and even more so the supporters involved.

    My only occasional criticism relates to the FTH match day graphics, which I feel sometimes take what could have been an interesting photo/subject, and instead turn it into a quick copy & paste graphic for laughs. There was one recently of the original Rabble, and actually then did lead to an interesting piece, just on occasion the graphics approach seems an easy quick thrills option.

    We have access to their bar before and after on Saturday. Thought it was worth checking.

    A quick copy and fucking paste!? They take hours of my spare time. Just as the previous style did. Then DHFC got a design studio in to do proper good ones so it made ours obsolete. So I took a new, less serious approach. The primary reason I do it is to put a smile on people's faces. And the secondary reason has always been to spread the word and attract more fans.

    Told myself not to bite on this but it takes up too fucking much of my spare time to not.

    One person's view. Don't take it to heart.

    Maybe Christian Burt would like to do a FTC x design by Chris collaboration. His photoshop skills might be better than yours and he sounds like he has time to commit to doing match day posters?

    Jesus wept.
    I was not, even for a second, critical of the time & effort, and the podcasts are ace as I said.
    It's not a competition: I was referring to something of historical rabble interest that ended up pasted into a match day poster. My skills for design are zero!

    Although the replies on here just emphasis the whole fan-boy approach that does my head in.
    Peace and out!

    So what was the fucking point then? Why bother? You actively chose to belittle someone elses work on a public forum, got called out for it and then ran away with your tail between your legs!?

    Christian Burt Well-Known Member

    Yeah, as I'm definitely the running away type.
    Tell me about tail between my legs to my face lad.

    No mate - I'm just shaking my head at the hive mentality of this place and DHFC off the pitch.
    You've basically said I'm a coward "tail between your legs" etc and I'm stating matter of fact that I'm not.

    Mike is right on the two tier thing in my opinion, and I feel people on here haven't taken that seriously and he's been a bit group jumped on. When he updated me that people had asked him why I hate FTH, I responded that I didn't hate FTH and wanted to say that here.
    And my point about a very very minor criticism of FTH was not belittling at all, but instead my lack of IT skills was belittled.
    I do my blog for the Redskins - initially some more experienced broad dudes in the USA made some points to me. I didn't go dead sensitive and say my hard work was being shit on. It's just a thing that there might be criticism some times along the way of blogs/podcasts. On a personal level, when you guys have a pre match podcast or interview or the end of season round up - it was great.

    I've always said I'm not inclusive or hive minded. I can be a shit.
    I think you're going from one to ten in being pissed off.

    You guys! I was just about to suggest we would have to get Mr BIG to 'abitrate'. But now you've made up so there is no need.
    Christian, best not refer to him as Mike as everybody will think you mean the editor.
    I am running my own 'coach' to Eastbourne free to non trust members. All seat sold out!
