The challenge is for Broncos to either win them back or to generate a new support after the move. It would be interesting to hear from the club what their fan attraction and retention policies will be once the move is done.


You would think, given the decline of crowds, that fan attraction and retention would be a high priority for the club irrespective of a move. However, we know from previous moves, where nothing much seemed to be done, that we are more likely to lose fans than gain them so this is absolutely vital.

In my experience the club are not very proactive where it comes to attracting or retaining fans following a ground move.

I am interested as to what the club will do.

They “plural” (not Al) are behind the scenes influencing issues, playing Monkey, managing social media, banning people, running the SC (monkeys bunch of bananas)………. Back slapping each other, slating the deserters without thinking has this crowd dwindled, is the club going backwards, is this a poor team… they don’t get it.
They like the short term adulation they are getting.



And so what ..?

You support the broncos don’t you ?
You want to watch the lads go out there and give it a go ?

So go

It's always easier said than done! I asked why we never have match report photos in 'League Express' I was assured every home match they are sent, I asked League Express owner why photos are not used, as we chat often, he apologised, I will to use them more, last weekends game No Photo's in our report?

Our best exposure for me was at The Stoop, The World Challenge games, we used Capital Radio & it worked, but that costs! Our current home? it is worth spending money on?

Used ITV news a six as well that season, answer a simple question about RL if you gave the correct answer you got 2 free tickets. Thats how we started to watch Broncos. Back then you had a great game day experiance for not only the adults, for the kids as well. The bars at the Stoop were great and catered for large crowds. BRING BACK 1997.

No they are a back field team with poor individual skill levels. They are fit and that’s it.

Indeed. Being one of only 2 apparently full time professional sides, the lack of anything other than stamina is quite startling. Without sammut we'd be bottom half material.

Not sure why you are still here then? a 'forum' is usually for fans who Support a club! I respect we all have different opinions.

I don't agree with your claim/comment, we have some players who are good, others who are developing, Championship clubs are rarely going to hold on to top players, that's just reality.

Have a good Sunday!

Is supporting the club your definition only?

Where does it say you must support a club to comment on a forum?

I welcome both your responses.
