That was the worst last-game-of-the-season I can remember. And I'm not talking about the performance or the result - as the performance was quite okay and the result just didn't matter at all as we were confirmed to have avoided relegation last week because four teams in the league were worse than us.

Apparently the award for PotS (Player of the Season) was made "on the pitch before the game" but from my excellent vantage point at the top of the stands I couldn't see it and I didn't hear any mention of it. There appeared to be no EoSS (End of Season Social), organised by the Supporters' Club and attended by supporters, volunteers, players, management and the Board. (Unless it was one of those private, invitation-only affairs?) There was (officially) 260 in attendance, so we should be grateful to Hornchurch for bringing a reasonable number and making some noise. And, unbelievably, there is still no announcement about where we'll be playing next season.

So I'm left asking myself "How do the Ks Board of Directors treat the supporters?"

There are internet service providers (e.g. Vodafone) who treat their customers better. There are delivery companies in the gig economy who treat their "independent contractors" (i.e. workers) better. There are water companies who treat the fish in their rivers better - and they literally shit on them.

It did feel rather anti-climatic

Oh. That’s it for a few months

And the presentation… why not on the pitch? At least then we could have cheered which would HEvD been great for Iker. A few minutes of a formal acknowledgement of the fans in the bar after the game would have been nice too

All in all - Un échec du marketing by those who should know bet

Good summary Rex.

It’s clear the board really don’t give a shit about the remaining supporters. Only two board members in attendance again today, the new director still nowhere to be seen!

The majority of fans can see how bad the current state of the club is. The board collectively need to take responsibility for every single problem that fans are raising as they have chosen to run the club in this bizarre way.

They have decided (arrogantly) to refuse help to give us a new lease of life and instead are content to oversee the demise of the club.

Shame on them-SACK THE BOARD!

Big Props to Lane, I for one, underestimated him, but I’m glad he proved me wrong and kept us up. He seems like a very decent person too, I hope we keep hold of him over the summer.

BUT…
As Fillipo mentions, avoiding relegation doesn’t take away the absolute state the club is in. This is not a plaster over a massively open wound. The “Director of Football” needs to leave this summer, that will be the BEST bit of transfer business we’ll do… maybe he can get back in the tea bar and serve us our food and drinks, at least that way he’ll be serving the fans, something he currently isn’t doing.

Dear Butler’s naked Butler,

It is with regret that I have to inform you that my client; Butler has commenced legal proceeding’s against yourself as the use of the name Butler in any context to do with Kingstonian is afforded to Butler himself only. You have been politely asked twice my client to change your forum alias but so far have failed to comply.
Whist my client is in agreement with the sentiments around the shit show of a board and of course the Director of football needing to be removed from club, my client has advised that the use of his name must cease immediately. If not you will be joining the director of football on the fast track out of the club

I couldn't count more than 100 Ks fans. It was the lowest attendance in the division today.

It's incredible that there has been no groundshare announcement.

Why do we not have a sub keeper on the bench. Tolfrey was obviously having mobility problems but carried on, Why?
