Clarion call from Thanet on cup

Banana skin or the cup that cheers?   VOTV editor Rick Everitt makes the case for taking our cup clash with Gateshead seriously:

The Rickster has further commented: 'Disappointing to hear that the club are not planning to run a supporters’ coach to Gateshead. I think that’s a poor decision that lets down some of the most diehard fans for the sake of risking a few hundred pounds, which is easily offset by profit they have made on other journeys.

Remember that the club will get a cut of ticket revenue from this game - if it chooses to accept it - and presumably a share of the TV fee too. Plus there is substantial prize money if they win the game.

I suspect this is a decision based on not understanding the fan base rather than the financial impact of possibly running with low numbers, which is trivial.'

One fan remarked: 'Especially with the replay, meaning fans had to wait 10 days to see who we played whilst travel and hotels prices increased each day.'

Update: the club has changed its position and will take bookings from this morning.
