    I honestly don’t know who is, but I do know some who aren’t.

    It is true that the Club are looking to help Supporters Club Branches attract even more members. This is more to do with promoting SC meetings on the website, hold competitions for matchballs or shirts etc.

    I assume the Club have looked at who turns up for home games (like Burton at the Etihad) and the half of aways they go to general sale and see SC members are increadibly important to our match going support.

    Our Club have also probably looked at the best supported Clubs on the continent and realise the likes of Dortmund are underpinned by Supported Club Members.

    Other than the tickets being in the middle of their group, I've no further proof

    And my assumption then is that it wasn't the first time or first SC to do it

    Assuming only points are given for home games, and assuming the people who are at the top go to all homes games how is anyone below the top ever going to catch up?

    People complain the club is doing more for its foreign fans than for the local ones so they make an effort to support our UK branches and people complain about that. No pleasing some is there Tim?

    What I would find more worrying is if there were people involved in City Matters who had been rejected from joining Supporters Club Branches because they are only interested in away tickets. Branches have to turn potential members away who are only interested in away tickets and I think some of the biggest critics of SCs fall into this category.

    This is getting tiresome. It’s only a couple of posts ago that I made it clear we’re going to be looking at rejigging the points system. No substantive discussions have taken place but the likelihood is that it will be a rolling system over a smaller number of years - say 2, 3 or 5 - instead of the current lifetime system.

    The Club and the OSC have been fantastic for our Branch. It’s great the Club are helping the fans closer to home and it must be good for our Football Club too.
