Web Site

Post by DB57 » 13 Feb 2018, 19:29

Is there any other football club, professional or otherwise, anywhere, that has as their front page to their website a picture of some lady's hand holding a photocopy of a lunch menu?

We really must be head and shoulders above everybody else for the poorest and most laughable website in the world of sport, - and beyond.

I just don't get it, unless somebody can enlighten me.

At least it reminds us of players no longer at the club.

It is a nice hand though

Could be worse, could be Harrop's hand with BBQ sauce stains all over it.

Actually DB has a vaild point. The football club is still operated on the premise of being a full time PROFESSIONAL one so maybe it should convey itself to the outside world as being so now and again. Starting with the website which is the first point of contact to the club for many people still and it's full of trivial stuff. Yes it's been rebranded but the content is poor and often trivial things take precedence over things more pressing.

I don't see the problem. Who regularly looks at the website and why?

What information do you expect to find that you probably don't already know? I only look for the fixtures, anything else is irrelevant to me.

Exactly we are GULLS FANS , not Man U, Chelsea ,Liverpool etc so why would we park our arses on an armchair ?
These issues all add up to the amateurish way this club has been run in recent times, attention to detail is everything, so if Geoffrey Harrop is right, potential "local business people being offered a place on the board " need to see a smart professional organisation, not what the wishy washy clueless morons are insinuating us to be .

To be honest, mate, I don't think the "arm chair supporters" care about their "club's" website, that's the difference.

Yes - who is the 'new' Gilbert anyway? The old one resigned didn't he? Looking at the latest video clips there is Gilbert, large as life.

the main picture is the latest thing added to the website, refresh an hour later and it could be something else, bit of a non point.

:goodpost: This.

It's the latest article which happens to be regarding hospitality. The photo is entirely relevant.

Strange thread.

The current website is a massive improvement on the useless one that preceded it. It may not be 100% up-to-date in certain areas but other than that it seems decent to me.

Certainly there are things that needs fans attention far more than someone crying about a picture which is used (and relevant) to advertise a hospitality package....

Nothing to see here!

I can't see maximising the website for marketing what the club has to sell as anything worth hammering them for......it's what the ruddy thing's for isn't it?
