Well, it couldn't be put clearer than this latest study.
Quite clear the ageing football fan is an endangered species and not just an Argyle thing.
Interesting statistics .

I expect that the Beeb penned that report just because they don't like James Brent, I doubt they live in Plymouth hence I don't see the relevance of their comment.

Admittedly I’ve only skim-read that, but it’s hardly an article about POTD, is it?

Jimmy wants twenty three quid to turn up and watch third division scufflers, when the true price should be about half that!! Also argo average nearly ten thousand, play Liverpool twice in the FA Cup yet the managers is forced to shop in poundland for players.
If its all the same to you Jimmy, i'll wait until you've fooked off back to your East Devon mansion for good before i return to Homepark again.

Football is too expensive there is a proper groundswell in the type of supporter that clubs want, moving away from working class men and boys to corporate and family day experience bollocks. There is nothing wrong with attracting corporate money although the bread and butter of clubs have always been the many thousands who potd. The contempt the potd fans are held in not only by Argyle but across the board is reflected on the catering offered to the two different sets of fans, one has waiter served high standard food, cheap filter coffee with free refills whilst the other has to cue at poorly manned counters to buy substandard garage forecourt food at motorway service station prices. The coffe for example is Nescafé with powdered milk in a cardboard cup which is a staggering 7 times the price of the filter coffee served by the waitress's/ waiters. As to the cost it is clearly too much, I have attended Argyle for most of my fifty odd year life, I was a regular at school along with most of my mates, I can't remeber how much it cost to be honest what I can never remember is not being able to afford to go.

And right on cue Posty says this on the thread about new directors coming in (which deserves its own thread).

It shoulda read, Diversity is even more important as we seek to grow membership with a particular focus on women and families and away from our lifeblood the poor mugs who have supported the club through thick and thin over many generations, cnuts.

"I'm into diversity. I don't mind whether I rip off guys or gals, it's all the same to me"
This will be the same champion of diversity who was so afraid of input from others that he declared he would have no other walleted directors, ie no one who could challenge him
And of course, his diversity didn't stretch to offering a voting capacity to the AFT for a big wedge. Obviously diversity only goes as far as wives of existing directors and major shareholders.

Does he really think everyone in Plymouth is as stupid as the company he keeps?

He'd be surprised at how few women and children aren't prepared to spend 20 minutes trying to park , pay the best part of a fiver for a twix and a cup of tea then find out there are only fizzy drinks available for the kids. Take a seat in a freezing cold, falling to bits concrete bowl with a view of a rotting hulk of a grandstand.  Watch pre match entertainment of some man who played in the 70s waffle inaudibly across the piss poor PA system whilst a badly choreographed group of scantily clad teenagers wave pom poms to back in black, if you are very lucky a fat man in a wig may join them.

At half time fight through hordes of people for 15 minutes to realise there is no food left. Return to the match to watch your new team ship 2 goals to Crawley or some other lower league shit playing in their away strip for no clear reason. Leave to a chorus of half hearted resigned boos, spend 30 minutes trying to get out of the car park and another 15 trying to get through the road works on Outland Road.

What planet does this cretin live on

It's working for him thus far, thanks to the wannabes who support his every whim and money making [for himself] schemes.
Village.... but he knows the nature of the janner beast and is playing it like a fiddle.
