Sounds like a lot of time was spent criticising our own supporters, why was the coach that went to Alfreton discussed?

Only the second meeting I've ever missed due to family commitments.

I always think that some topics take on a different vibe in the written word than in the spirit that they were actually discussed - nothing to substitute being there and having your say.

Will certainly try to attend all future meetings

Worrying that ideas of restricting Wrexham tickets to ST holders and CFU members are being branded about by board members as well.

Great idea IMO. It will hopefully boost income for the club by attracting more CFU members but more importantly stop the hooligan element from going to the game or if they do go, at least they will be identifiable. It will also save us repair costs caused by the morons who delight in causing damage.

I wouldn't be blackmailed in to becoming a CFU member, doubt many others would either.

Not sure why CFU membership would make the 'hooligan element' more identifiable, they are already well known to the police.

Not a case of blackmail - being a member of any club attracts certain benefits, in this case it would be getting a ticket for the Wrexham game. If people don't want to join the CFU and I will never understand why 'supporters' will not join, that is their choice but if they don't like the decisions the CFU make, they should join and try to change things.
