Despite the result and performance yesterday a group of fans decided to go down to pitch side at the end of the game to express their allegiance and support to the club during this tough spell. Dave Pottinger came over to offer handshakes and his sympathies for what we had witnessed.

He didn't have to do that so he deserves a lot of respect for that.

However, a handshake will only go so far until the supporters get the answers they want.

When was the last time the other 2 owners of the club attended an away game?

Indeed, fair play to Mr Pottinger, but....
The club began sliding towards what it is now a good few seasons ago.Its a shame it's taken this long for most of you to recognise this.
I said it a long time ago, personal experience or not.....those at the helm will not be happy until they have driven all their loyal customers away.
It started with Gazebo Stand Williams.Mr "Crawley Town" Williams, if you like.
Do you think that tool gives two hoots about us now?Of course he doesn't.We just conveniently laid the foundations for his future job opportunities.
It's the same with the current crop., only they are less fortunate than Williams in that we are skint , so their tenure could be slightly longer lived.
Credit where it's due though for Mr Pottinger, he does actually seem to care about the club unlike that other thing.

Was good of him. He also came along to our CTSA FC supporters match against MK Dons fans a couple of weeks ago in Redhill to show his support for the fans team.

I do believe he could hold the answers.

I was told before he is related to our mysterious man in Hong Kong.
