    Harrogate town car school.

    Post by Top Cat on Thu Dec 15, 2016 5:42 pm

    Not sure how many of you have seen this on the YouTube channel, great concept but poorly thought out.

    It's no wonder harrogate town gets the reputation of signing players on above average wages who are looked after like kings but when it comes down to it fail to deliver, that 1st epsidoe is basically what I presume is one of our highest earners driving around harrogate with a club employee in a convertible talking about Betty's, nice houses and the greenery of harrogate, then going for a fancy burger at a expensive restaurant with a bottle of champers on the table!

    I'd suggest maybe film a carpool with a player on his way into training/en route to the game matchday when he's minds on his job and ask him questions about the club, what brought him to the club, superstions he may have, the clubs fans, there personal goals for the end of the season? This episode came across to me like a lads afternoon out paid for by the club.

    Great concept badly delivered.

    Just watched it again 90% of what they talk about is drivel, if it wasn't on our YouTube page you'd struggle to figure out it's anything to do with town.

    Haven't seen it and won't be but presume it's been done to maiximise sponsorship. If it brings money in and helps to offset wages or fund new initiatives such as a new web site then it's part of 'that necessary evil' of corporate involvement. Feel uncomfortable about it in general in the modern game at all levels but it's the world we live in. Like to see it offset with a food bank drive or toy drive with players going onto local children's ward to balance the image of town to the wider audience. We raise a lot of money through charity efforts and maybe need to publicise this side of things more. Just my thoughts mind.

    No doubt it is one of Daniel Mctwatfaces ideas. Pouncing around Harrogate looking the tool he is. It's about time that idiot buggers back off to Leeds United or wherever he came from. He can take his shitty grey turtle neck jumper and 'I'm better than you attitude' and shove it up his arse.

    Get out of our club and take that twat Gary Plant with you.

    And before people start saying I'm the only one saying it, just take a look at the Facebook group. The owners seem to think he is doing an excellent job in increasing attendances. BULLSHIT.

    It is well known the club count season ticket holders as present whether they are there or not. The club have given free season tickets to all children who participate in the Player Development Scheme. That's what? 100/150? Add that to our attendance, and if anything, it's gone down.

    Haha my nephew showed me this. Hilarious. How pompous is that lad. Couple of folk were saying about him yesterday. Lad needs a reality check.
    Well the home attendance weren't that great and can anyone blame people. Awful experience visiting wetherby road nowadays. Yesterday was a great example of it.

    Do we know how many of the official 1055 attendance were Stockport supporters entering at the south gate? In segregated matches this information should be readily available and published.

    700 surely? Would say Halifax bought about 900 to a 1000 and darlo bought 1200. Really cannot work out how they got to the number yesterday.

    There won't be/ club won't announce official away attendance I wouldn't think but I'd say in the region of 700/800 Stockport, so it's either a appalling home turn out (don't blame folk )but seated stand was nearly full (holds in region of 350)and kop was well attended (400/500) plus standing on side round ground, says attendance was false or it's a massive fiddle/cash in the back pocket job

    The attendance announced could simply be an admin error ie the wrong figure written down and passed to the announcer or the announcer misread the figure put in front of him (eg 1655 where the 6 is written like a 0).

    It could very well be a mistake, I highly doubt it tho going by other attendance figures announced this year,
