and coming to field mill has to be one of those options.

At the moment it isnt. Who the eff wonders what to do on a Saturday and thinks ' oh yeah, lets go and watch the football, its only £50 between us!' It's ridiculous.

Considering we play in a three quarters empty stadium it is flipping ridiculous.



that's nothing to do with paul nyland, though, is it?
told you, what carolyn wants, carolyn gets.

So what sort of commercial activity and events did the club do BEFORE Paul came in?

He earned the job after his "The 12th Man" scheme when he part funded the acquisition of players such as Paul Connor whilst in the conference.

You're trying to be clever but you don't know how to even edit a post. Seven posts in a row suggests you're thick and/or trolling - but certainly have an axe to grind with Paul.

Sat in west stand upper yesterday.

Concourse is filthy, dusty and covered in litter. Toilets were flooded and the smell was awful.

Not an inviting place to take a 5yr old.

Said before, it isn't an event going to the mill, not an enjoyable experience.

Tibby i agree with you.

Having a 6yr old myself, its a challenge to get in and out of the upper tier toilets without piss all over your shoes and trousers when its flooded. You have to lift him up to reach the urinal anyway but then have to avoid any contact with his shoes :|

We know people from the club read this forum, and as the saying goes the customer is always right (usually).

My challenge to the club is to engage with us the fans on how the match day experience can be improved for ourselves, friends and family.

An open suggestion box (email box prehaps) or something like that to take the key points from, feedback to the fans constructive points raised and implement any changes as a result.

But i'm sure this will likely fall on deaf ears again.

Upper tier toilets are minging, and trap 2 has been out of order pretty much all season, but at least the pubic dam was cleared in the summer. My missus informs me that the ladies are equally vile.

Keeping the bogs clean shouldn't be that difficult.

You should get yourself on stage at Hoofers next time there's an open mic night.

Upper bogs have been a disgrace for years - filthy. Young kids can't even reach the urinal (not that they're welcome any rode.)

We spend money on a knackered scoreboard but not the essentials.

As for the pubic dam; it was the highlight of most home games.

I thought it was just my ears but it sounded like Chris appeared to say "Kane Rose" after the goal. Having watched the match videos, it was just my ears. :lol: Though overall I thought he was very professional like others have said.

Thanks for the link Pete. (Would help if this was a locked / sticky thread as already on 3 pages of the thread list).

However not sure it covers the point i'm trying to make. What i'm suggesting is an open forum / form of dialogue between the supporters and club from which suggestions can be made and feedback is for all to see as opposed to complaints on an individual basis which will go unnoticed by others.

1 complaint v 500 fans all agreeing with the same point raised would surely have more strength behind it, and encourage the club to act.

This may also encourage others to put forward constructive suggestions if they can see the club have listened, understood and acted upon feedback.

Quite ironic seeing as you appear to be the critic. I think listing a few of your forward thinking ideas would actually add to the debate and would also allow others to mull over them to see if you could step into Paul's shoes moving forward.

Go on punk. Make our day. We are all ears


i think the balls in your court.


I think you are mistaken as I wasn't the one criticising Paul Nyland or the events that he puts on.
He does music, comedy, quizzes, sports celebrity nights and several other event types all in the name of getting revenue into the club. Not all of them may be to your taste but I'm struggling to think of much that he hasn't tried and they are generally well attended events.

We will become cool as a club when we hopefully get better and move up a league or two. Unfortunately most kids don't see MTFC as being cool regardless of what is done off the pitch, whilst we are an average L2 club. I've got amber and blue blood running through my vains and have taken my 13 year old lad to watch the Stags on several occasions over the years. He doesn't enjoy watching them regardless of what I do or tell him. The reason is that the football has been rubbish. His words not mine although 95% of the time I hate to say he's probably been correct. Like most kids he sees the TV premier and champions league games as the norm and has ended up disappointed with the matches he's watched. Yes he needs a reality check and most of the time has got one when he's watched us play.

In terms of the entrance fee, that's the general cost of football and is necessary to cover the costs of the club. The Stags are no different to any other lower league club in that respect.

Fingers crossed we will be a top 7 team all season, start playing some decent football and get promoted. If that happens we will become a bit more cool and people won't mind paying the entrance fee.

Apologies I didn't respond earlier as I don't live on Stagsnet like some and only get the time to log on a few times a week. Also the punk reference probably wasn't something I should of written. It was a naff Dirty Harry reference designed to wind you up a bit because I felt your criticism of Paul was unreasonable and unjustified.
