This week we want to vote on our number one... 🧤 Which Darlo keeper will you choose? Head over to YC now and vote! 🗳️

When we put the long lists together we didn't let personal views on players dictate who was included and who wasn't.

To be fair, that it what the voting process does. If enough fans don't think that James was good enough, then he won't wind up in the final XI.

A team full of Caton's

I appreciate the feedback. If it doesn't float your boat, don't vote.

Also, with the absolute greatest respect, telling folk who are trying to improve fan services/engagement (in their spare time, for free) that they're wasting their time isn't going to do much to help us recruit future volunteers in this space.

Just my opinion.

I think it’s a great idea , and it’s certainly given me something to think about while there’s been no games and no signings

Agree. It is just a bit of fun.

Especially over close season.

Sorry no offence intended and certainly don’t want to decry the efforts of our volunteers.

For me, looking at the lists of players that have entertained us over the past eleven years has served as great reminder of what we've been missing since fans have been excluded and has given me something to look forward to.

Ffs all I said was that I thought it was a waste of time. Am I not allowed to voice my opinion?
I would much rather focus on the coming season than reflect on the past but if that is want some want to do then far enough.
Just because I am not gushing in my enthusiasm for this particular venture does not mean that I am having a go at our volunteers.

It does though doesn’t it old got? There is no enthusiasm, gushing or otherwise, and in fact the exact opposite of enthusiasm. Not even apathy, rather a direct sweeping generalisation because something simple has offended your sensitivities. There’s no need for you to respond to this, take your forward looking focus that you commented on and concentrate on the future, that’s clearly a strength of yours. Leave this one for people who care 😊
