Maybe not to you lot, but Newquay fans are pissed off that our crowds are shown far below the true figure. We are truly the 2nd best supported club in Cornwall (PZ being top, no one counts Truro anymore) and are annoyed that due to supposed VAT reasons our crowds are being under-declared.

It makes us look small time to the world outside Mount Wise, when we know, that there is no Prem side with bigger support.

If you want a real laugh, G state the crowd today was 490 when the top estimate was 300 and over half were Newquay fans. Most thought 200 was a fair crowd, 250 tops . Put it this way, there were more at Mount Wise on Tues night v St Austell than at G today and Newquay have declared just 133 - go figure !

I'm lost on this one, don't the home side declare the gate. I was at Saltash yesterday, did a complete head count and it came to 194. Will be interesting to see the figure given.

A also note that if you take away the incredible one off gate of 737 v Godolphin then the average is only 89.

I note the time of your posting Mark and obviously by then you did well to see the keyboard. In the cold light of day and being sober you might like to apologise to the Secretary - you cannot win at Newquay - produce a great result on the field and some has to moan. In the Clubhouse yesterday - a few drink fuelled fans moaning about something that was meaningless.

It certainly takes a thick skin to try and run a football club - talking about not pleasing anyone.

Never mind when the AGM comes around those outspoken people will be able to take over. Then again there is a pink pig just flown by!!!

Rant over - well done to Jim and his team.

I am not disputing the great job that Derek, you and all the other committee members have done for the club. From now on I will count the crowd (including those who have not paid, kids etc and not subject to VAT) and post it on the forum, others can then decide on what figures to believe.

When I was on the gate on Tuesday Night it was so windy that a five pound note I was handing out as change blew out of my hand and disappeared down the road. According to the Judges headcount I must have missed another hatfull blowing away whilst I wasn't looking.

That is not what I was saying. Every club should declare the correct attendance as many get in for nothing, kids, committee etc, if you don't charge, then you don't pay VAT. Truro let in over 700 free of charge for one match and you can be sure that not a penny VAT needs to be paid on that.

From Dereks comments it appears that he is only counting those who paid, in which case 133 is about right. But as eveyone who was in the ground knows, a figure much higher actually watched and it is this figure that should be given out.

I've said it before and I will say it again, no one is knocking the hard work put in by all concerned at Mount Wise, no one is saying that money is being pocketed without telling the VATman (other that the **** that is FRODO), just tell us how many are watching.

Flippin 'eck, Judge - thought you'd see the funny side of that... maybe not!

In the past, you have been downright unacceptable, but more recently I have found you to be outrageous, controversial, biased and opinionated, qualities which make you perhaps the most talked about character in Cornish football.

You divide opinion wherever you go and get people talking - that has to be a good thing.

You, Judge, are a football FAN and that is something sadly lacking in Cornwall these days.

I salute you :c:
