Been a lot of rain on the pitch. Could anyone going let us know what it’s like afterwards, cheers!

Hope there’s a link online soon. He’s just gone off on one about nobody being on the same page, people living in the past and him not being Allardyce or Parkinson (whose name he couldn’t remember at first!).
It was pretty spectacular, even for him.

Top marks to the club for this mini-magazine for the kids that arrived this morning. We really can get a lot of things right that don’t get recognised. The posters inside are excellent.

Now we are through, with the added bonus of tonight’s game being on tv and the Newcastle game also on BT, really hope we are sensible with the ticket prices ie. not raising them by a fiver a la Sunderland etc. With the Accrington game three days before and Bolton the week after, we don’t want to see fans having to make a choice and missing vital league games.
For a number of years we’ve not had a “big” draw in cup competitions. This will be the third in less than two years, floating fans will start to think twice if the price isn’t right as the novelty is going. If the home ends aren’t full, we’ll have got it wrong.

Chance to build on last week and get another three points to try and increase the gap to the drop zone. Be interesting to see if any of the missing players return.
Bury better have some alternative socks, hate a royal blue v navy clash.
|Frost covers on|
at 19:18 30 Nov 2019
Still awaiting clarification on the frost covers bought for the club by the Trust in the past.
There was this last month:
<<“We had been asked by a Trust member with regards to pitch covers, specifically the frost covers that had been purchased through a donation from the Trust in April 2013. The club stated that they would find out at let us know at the next meeting.”>>
That donation from the Trust, via money raised by supporters, was over £5000.
There has been a subsequent meeting (see the lengthy thread on it, I’m all linked out), unfortunately, unless I’ve missed it (would appreciate a link if that’s so, and offer apologies), we are yet to find out the status of those covers. Quite why those at the club wouldn’t know anyway is a bit surprising, but they’ve now had enough time to check and it would be good to know the efforts of supporters and the Trust are still playing a part in getting games on, like tomorrow’s.
|Trust meeting with the club|
at 18:43 31 Oct 2019
2544 season tickets sold in total.
On the country season tickets for students, it was specifically asked why this was not already in place after a commitment in September to have a ‘Freshers Week’:
And from the Trust September newsletter:
<<“We were contacted by a member with regards to first year students and the Exile season tickets. With such an early deadline, they were excluded from this with the deadline day falling before A-Level results day, meaning they had no confirmation or proof of address. The club agreed to take this on board and will be introducing a "Fresher's Week" later this month to allow those affected to purchase one.”>>
There was a request to the Trust, via the agreed methods, asking for the reasons for any delay in the agreements mentioned to be explained to supporters via their website. Unfortunately, that seems to have been unachievable and those fans who came up with the idea remain unsure why. Especially when you’d think turning up with a University letter confirming a student was on a course out of the area would be enough.
Some really interesting stuff in there as usual and thanks to the Trust for their work again. Please note their next formal meeting with the club is on 11/11/19. Questions can be sent by members via the email address in this link: https://www.daletrust.co.uk/2019/10/meeting-with-the-directors-4/

It’s about time someone came out and properly explained the Lillis situation. He’s at the club yet we recall a player from a loan spell who isn’t as good.
at 18:02 10 Oct 2019
The amount of coverage Bolton get in their press from people who are prepared to actually interview him properly meant it was only a matter of time before a few fans started asking the questions seen in the replies to this on twitter.

Would have worked if we’d drawn Sheff U as well. Clever.
