£114,400.

I'm still waiting for the right time to put mine in.

There will be others wanting to be part of the last day rush.

120k is odds on now, good chance of 125k and an outside chance of 130k I reckon.`
Hope you are right in the £130k but I will be more than happy with the £120k.
And, like you, I will be one of the last day brigade.

Every pound raised by the fans /owners helps fill a gap where commercial revenues will drop due to this horrendous situation which alot of companies find their revenues dropped and can't financially support as they had previously. As has been corrected tomorrow is the last day so 2 days to make your pledge if you're able .
The more you raise the stronger the club will be .
It's our club it's our choice where we want the club to be
pushing for the top or struggling below midd table.
Let's make a difference lads and lasses you can do it .
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS WITH DFC.

DJ said at the first interview with Ray when the figure was £87k, that he would be overwhelmed if it reached £120k and said so again at the latest chat but only dreamt it could reach £130k.Even at £120k he stated what a difference it would make to our finances so anything above this would be brilliant for our club.

I think £125k will be achieved & we could get towards £130k, which would be absolutely brilliant. I'm sure there are many clubs who are envious of what we have achieved & the super fans we have.

Suspect most of us have made our main pledge by now and what we will see is lots of small amounts going in as people make an extra contribution on a one off basis.

Precisely I think this evening could be quite exciting, with lots of smaller donations.

I remember an interview DJ did with Ray in May 2018 where he said that if we were to move forward as a club eventually BTB would need to be done by 40-50% of our average home crowds. He based that on crowds of 1,479. So to be up to where he wants to be in terms of numbers of pledges, 40% is 592 and 50% would be 740. Here's the interview. The relevant bit is from 4.20 onwards.

Only 7 off the 40% as it stands 😁

Obviously some people will have donated more than once, equally some will have made donations for more than just one person.

Also there is the Darlo fans who cannot get to home games but like to feel part of the club. Well done to everyone concerned, a great demonstration of what it means to be a fans owned club!

Brilliant... Well done to all involved, whether is was a kids pocket money or few hundred adding to the total.

It has all added up to a fantastic effort by the wonderful supporters of this club that we never let die.

Reckon it will hit £125k tonight Chris,DJ and AA will be ecstatic with what our great fans have contributed particularly when furlough and job security issues have to be taken into account.

Other clubs will look at this figure and think an extra 0 has been inserted, unbelievable effort and loyalty to our club.

Well we're now approaching £123k, what do people think the final figure can be this evening? I'd like to think we can get near to £130k, as plenty off fans will make a final contribution, in the run up to the midnight deadline.

Just under £127k, can see £130k being smashed.DJ mentioned this figure but laughed at the thought of it and pretty much dismissed it.

This is massive for the club.

Just contributed to the cause. I'm a first time investor since boost the budget was incepted by the club, glad and grateful to be in a position to help towards the budget.
