        Why not email the club and ask rather than asking on the unofficial.....

          Or just read Wilko's programme notes from 2 days ago!

            To be honest, I haven't had a chance to read Saturday's programme yet.

              I usually read the boardroom notes then little else.

              But it amuses/bugs me that so many people ask on here for updates on various things, moan about lack of communication from the club etc yet don't even bother to look at one of the main means of providing info. If they can't get to games, they can also usually read the boardroom notes on the club website.

              Why wouldn't any person with a grain of sense do that before grizzling on here? No offence, RF, but it's either lazy or daft. Or both.

                Yeah, how dare people ask for news about the club they support on the club's messageboard? Or is the club only going to announce news now in the programme?

                  Well, they're hardly likely to announce things on here are they? 🤣🤣🤣

                  You're missing my point anyhow. Which is that someone somewhat sarkily asking if it's too much to hope for an update might actually have looked at the official communication channels first. Like the official programme. For the first game of the season. Just two days ago. Makes sense doesn't it? Especially as it's regularly used for updates. They only tend to do a press release for major news. As an aside, I'd love to know more about the progress but at least I look at the obvious sources before commenting!

                    Who said they should announce things on here?
                    The PC timetable is dragging and stated timeframes have been missed. I think fans deserve a bit more info than a few platitudes in the programme.

                      Dunno, why don't you explain EXACTLY how that's not what you were asking when you said:

                      "Yeah, how dare people ask for news about the club they support on the club's messageboard? Or is the club only going to announce news now in the programme?"

                        It seemed a fair question from the original poster. People are allowed to ask rather than be told ‘email the club’ or read the programme. Asking about news on a message board rather than asking for news to be posted on a messageboard

                          In which case, you were told where to find the information so it was exactly as fruitful as you could have hoped.

                            Yeah let's all read the update which isn't available online and seems to have passed everyone else by.

                              Re: Too much to ask?

                              Posted by jimmyp on 1/8/2022, 21:06:38, in reply to "Re: Too much to ask?"

                              Correction, you've been told where to find the information and also that unusually it's not yet available. Demonstrating, comprehensively, that this was indeed the place to ask the question and moreover have it answered.

                              You're going to have to demonstrate some sort of polling as to whom it's passed by if you want to claim that "everyone else" has also missed it. Including those who bought said programmes and read said article, presumably.

                              Or, you could carry on crying like the snide, new-name, tosspiece that you're apparently insisting on being.

                                You want polling to prove that fans would like an update? Bit weird that, Jim. If there was an update worth reading I'm fairly sure the press and other fans would have picked up on it considering it's importance to the club and town.

                                Truth is it doesn't appear much was updated. I think some are a bit concerned as to where the project is. That's not digging out 2020, just a genuine view.


                                If there was any update of any note it would have been reported by the press and covered on here. You don't bury an update about probably the biggest project the club has ever had in the boardroom notes of a programme.

                                No need to call me tosspot, that's beneath you. I'm being no more snide than others have been telling the OP to email the club or that they were lazy to research something which isn't available without a time machine.

                        I'd suggest that you read the programme notes then. It's not platitudes.

                        As for timeframes, yes of course they have been moved/missed. I'd refer you to the programme notes again. And to the national news for the last two years....

                          I meant in terms of timeframes Sweet saying an application would be in first half of the year. That’s now missed. If it wasn’t platitudes then the club needs to up it’s PR game and inform fans via other means.

                            Surely a positive monthly/2 monthly update even if nothing has really progressed keeps everyone buoyant and eases the minds of the doubters. It doesn't need to be a novel just a brief update.

                                Exactly, but there is always room for improvement and fresh initiatives.
                                I would suspect a high percentage of the fan base dont really know where we are re Power Court.
                                I have to admit I am not really sure where we are and the expected timescale.
                                Substations, planning applications again, change of use etc have all been quoted, shouldn't be that hard for a regular update?

                                  Which they’ve done absolutely nothing to share with the wider fan base or local press

                                    Oh well, you'll just have to buy a programme next time won't you?

                                    I'm sure the local press can read and I'd expect the notes to appear on the OS at some point.

                                    Wilko does suggest that GS will 'give you a full update in the very near future'. I expect that'll be in the programme too....🙂

                                      I have to buy a programme to be updated on PC developments? Strange PR approach and not a great way to manage news.

                                          When there is something substantial to report it will probably be on the OS.
                                          Do you really want a daily report on "x tons of rubble were removed from the site of the old Noah building"?

                                            An update as to why a planning application wasn't put in during the timescales promised by Sweet might be nice.

                                              As per usual go to the extreme in support of mates. No one has asked for a daily report.
                                              Even you must be able to understand that fans are interested in the ongoing developments and a better publicised feedback on a regular basis can only be a good thing.

                              As has been mentioned, the programme notes normally appear on the OS a few days after the game.

                              To be honest mate it looks like you are the only one grizzling. The poster just asked a question about the football club, personally I would rather read club related posts than what someone is having for dinner or another accusation of racism, it's kind what the board was about, sure, the poster could do some research but there are usually some well informed posters on here to give a quick answer. It might be easier just to share knowledge.

                                  I know, I just looked! Usually on there a day or so after the game so perhaps check back tomorrow.

                                  There's quite a bit in Wilko's notes, plus reference to GS probably providing a fuller update when he does the notes.

                                      Yep. Wilko's notes say the board had a full update presentation recently from GS, MM and co, goes into a bit of detail (all reassuring) and says that GS is likely to provide more detail in his own programme notes soon.
