You've already paid, so no skin off their noses... until June.

But it sends out a message surely? If I'm not going now, how likely is it that I will renew in 6 months? Plus they lose any revenue that I would usually spend on a match day etc.

I'm going Sunday but my son has already said he won't be coming with me. And I wont blame him either. I can't do MK Dons and that's my reason for going Sunday. There's a chance I could be away for two months in Feb and March so I dont want to miss too many games

Everyone should be free to make their own choice on whether they go. I can't wait till Gregory has gone, tomorrow would be too late and it should have been over a month ago

Better still, nobody turn up. A complete boycott from the home support will send a much stronger message than the 'perceived' minority having a pop.

I've got a season ticket and as things stand I have no intention of being there.

As you know Ian, I tend to indulge myself with several pints before, at half time and after the game.

There's at least 130 they won't be getting their hands on. Hickmott Sr feels similarly so there's the best part of 300 the club won't be getting. If the masses follow suit there's suddenly a big hole in the revenue, a hole that maybe sufficient for the club to see beyond the end of their noses and sort this mess out before it's too late (if it's not already).

None of you have got the balls to seriously protest.
We can all moan on the forum, but when it comes to real action.... ........

Exactly why a mass boycott works. Actions speak louder than works and hitting the club in the *beep* pocket will have a far larger impact than protesting.

All the while people are moaning but turning up and spending money, this disgraceful situation will continue.

Hit them in the wallet and things will change a lot quicker.

Too many wet blankets I'm afraid.
Too many scared of their own shadow.
Those of us that would......are banned or don't care anymore.

Agree with you armchair. Each to their own but at some point you've got to make a stand. I and my two sons are season ticket holders and will not be going Sunday. It beggars belief that some of our fans clapped the 2 or 3 players brave enough to squirm their way to about 30 yards from the away section at the end. A few half baked cries for Gregory to #### off will hardly have Dunford typing up Gregory's P45. A crowd around the 1000 mark for the Colchester game will ring alarm bells and send a message that will be hard to be ignored. Half the beauty of football is not knowing what will be served up each game, but unfortunately I know too well what a turgid, lifeless performance will be on offer against Colchester, despite it being a so called 6 pointer. The club are laughing in the faces of the few loyal fans remaining and I urge all true reds fans to boycott the game. Show some *beep*, it might even rub off on the players

If I wasn't so skint, I'd be buying a half season ticket. As it stands, I'll just be going when I can afford to.

While there is next to no pleasure watching Crawley anymore,I am equally sure Gregory won't be going anywhere unless the Bod over rule Dunford.

We are a conference team / budget playing in league one with to many players who can not play at this level.

It makes me laugh to hear Gregory talk about a ten day window to change things .

1. No one will take the players he wants rid of so unless we pay up contracts there is no scope to change.

2 he signed the largely shower of *beep*. There are exceptions like Dickson and Oyebanjo who have proved reasonable signings. Why should anyone trust him to get it right second time

Don't you mean third time More bad signings and waste of money the bloke is useless, should have gone long ago.

As it has been said, low figures will be blamed on the Xmas period!

We must be the only club, non league or otherwise who would use the excuse of the Xmas period being to blame for low crowds.

We must be the only Club, non league or otherwise, that has people in authority spouting absolute nonsense that wants to delude the supporters that all is well on and off the pitch
We have minds of our own and can see we are in a state of meltdown. Immediate and drastic action is needed to remove the deluded fools.
This isn't North Korea and we don't have to follow blindly into the abyss; we need to take action as is our right. At least we can look back and say WE went down fighting

If we were North Korea, we might at least be able to shoot better ( in the football sense of course).

As dictated by Mustaphashot

I know Peter, not arguing against you hence my "... until June' qualifier.
