    Evening All,

    Prior to kick off on Saturday we received the below reply from the club. This doesn't give that instant clarity many of us hoped for, but we do see it as a positive both in terms of the speed of Khaled's response and the willingness to meet with BFCST to answer all questions in full. The timing of Thursday's Fans' Engagement Forum helps too.

    Thank you.

    Safety of supporters could still just mean steward numbers. I feel like it’s hoped that people presume structural but almost certainly isn’t.

    Thanks Ben
    Well the positive is he does indicate re-opening is a possibility
    The negative is it’s very light on detail no explanation as to why it’s not safe or and details about what needs to happen to re-open or when that can happen
    Can’t say I am feeling much happier after reading that

    6000 season tickets sold? I thought it was 10000?

    Says basically the same as we already have had BUT there is mention of it reopening. Think this is the line we need to pursue in all honesty.

    Good that he replied but not much more than a holding statement, can't understand why they can't be explicit about what the problem regarding safety is.

    That's a pretty disappointing reply in all honesty. It's just a few platitudes and a thrown bone in the shape of hopefully re-opening the West Stand.

    I'm losing patience.

    I said I'd wait until this response came out.

    It's now out.

    It's pretty disappointing.

    In my opinion he may well be using a classic Sholes and Glidden typewriter. The letter "e" usually gives it away.

    My immediate concern is my ever-worsening eyesight.

    I will try read again on my main screen tomorrow but thanks for the update.
