    As always, good analyses from Swiss Ramble. People will still only quote the headline promotion figure and demand to know where all the money has gone, much easier than actually using the data!!!

    Could AD be our AC??

    Every season there's a scapegoat, this season it's been Hanley, until injury, last season it was Cantwell and before that Martin. There's also the saviour, that player that for some reason unknown to the expert fans, the deluded manger who only gets to see them every single day in training, just won't bow to the collective wisdom of the fans. In recent years we've had Luciano Becchio and Kyle Lafferty who would bang in the goals if only given the chance. It looks like we have a new unicorn this season, it's Adam Idha!

    Membership Scheme Meetings.

    Will there be pitch forks and flaming torches supplied?

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    I seem to recall he was injured a lot as well?

    If he was really loyal he'd have moved his beautiful wife to the fine city and besides, a truly loyal fan's dream job would be any job working within the NR1 postcode so a daily pilgrimage can be taken to the sacred Carra Rud ?

    West Ham tickets

    They must have known this when buying the membership though? All of the future ticket sale dates are online. That would be an issue even under a points system for popular fixtures.

    I was just about to suggest the same thing.

    Do you feel strongly about it because you think it's unfair or because under the old system you were higher up the pecking order for first dibs on a ticket? The new system is fairer, all be it with several significant quirks that need to be ironed out. I rarely went to an away game due to the lack of availability of tickets and because I couldn't get to more games I couldn't build up more points meaning I was permanently locked out of the system. At least under this system everyone who wishes to participate has an equal chance.

    https://canariestrust.org/2019/07/19/trust-quarterly-meeting-with-ben-kensell-on-18th-july/ The Trust requested up to date figures on memberships and these currently stand at: 7873 home memberships sold (of which 1561 are Standard) 6973 away memberships sold (of which 245 are Standard) Ben explained that the consultation process on next season’s membership scheme will start in September and will involve a series of meetings, perhaps one with fan groups, another prioritising those who complained to the Club, and another with a selection of fans from each stand. Details to be announced soon.

    West Ham don't fill their ground so I'm curious as to why people think touts will be buying away tickets to sell to home fans?

    Why would you buy a membership to a double glazing company?

    Michael Bailey

    Well not a scoop as much, but I see The PinkUn have just published a story based on an interview of Delia and MWJ by Michael Bailey in The Athletic.

    So sad

    A cracking article, thanks for sharing it and surely a warning that increasing capacity at any cost isn't wise.
