This has declined to the extent that I am no longer prepared to buy it. While the % of adverts has increased, my main gripe is that the stats page showing players, subs, cards, refs has gone. They still managed half a page for the match-day music playlist; warped priorities. I've e-mailed the club expressing my dis-satisfaction, will advise any response.

At a tangent, I'm surprised that we've gone back to playing Forever in Blue Jeans at the end of games. Football fans are superstitious and that tune in my mind associates with top of L1 to failing to even make the play-offs. Bring back Local Hero...

I agree completely Boz. In the space of a couple of years it has gone from being one of the best programmes at this level, to one of the most mediocre. The adverts / commercial content is ridiculous and there are hardly any historical / statistical articles of note, just generic stuff regarding the manager and players which is available on social media anyway. Even the programme review page seems to have disappeared.

I understand that the programme was trimmed as part of the cost-cutting exercise in the summer, but there is a sloppiness about the whole production now. And the price remained the same. It does not befit a club of our status. Wrexham's is much better.

I always bought a programme when was a boy with little money. But nowadays I hardly ever buy one. They are generally a waste of money. The useful or interesting content is minimal.
