T-End Talk - New Podcast

Not much to add other than really enjoyed that, thank you for putting it together!

Like the previous poster, I also enjoyed the discussion around marketing. We don't have much cohesion in our branding, in that our mascot is a tiger, that is our nickname to most fans and yet we play in red. It got me wondering what animals would match our colours but I couldn't think of much....red river hog, red ants, red panda...not very menacing or inspiring!

Didn't find it negative at all, just a good honest discussion.

I’m not sure that the mascot or nickname makes a difference to anything - the bigger picture is that we have gone from accepting that we’ll have small crowds and not much sponsorship at Evesham, to being back in Gloucester with a much bigger target audience and therefore much greater competition for their time and money. Whether we play in red or yellow and black wouldn’t have made any difference to that. Most clubs at our level are either village teams who are the only sports team in their area, or well established ex football league clubs with long held relationships with sponsors and fans. They don’t have the same problems we do.

For us to be able to grow we need to pitch ourselves at the same level as our competitors and imo the most threatening of those at this moment in time are Gloucester Rugby (for local sponsorship) and FGR (for local fanbase). So I think the appointment of a marketing company is less to do with being a conscious decision that ‘we don’t have a brand’ and more to do with making sure that, whatever our brand is, we make it attractive and visible to sponsors and potential new fans.

Thought the pod was really good, just right for length too. Well done, looking forward to the next one!

Leicester are the foxes, and play in blue, whilst Watford are the Hornets and have a moose on their crest. I don’t think accuracy is a football strongpoint!

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

Very enjoyable once again - in particular Ryan’s breakdown of the remaining fixtures and the clubs around us having to play each other…it definitely warrants further investigation to see what is the minimum points haul required over the coming weeks to ensure we don’t go bottom

First time listening today and really enjoyed it. Great to hear some different opinions and insight into aspects of the club I'm less familiar with. It's easy to forget how much work has been done to establish us a 'club' again now that we're back in the city. 

Thought the length was just about right and a good mix of content. Will be listening again.

Listened to the first one at lunchtime and I thought it flowed really well. There was no dead points and it was clear that all of the people were genuine fans concerned about the state of the club.

I'll try and listen to the second one on my run tomorrow.

Excellent. Enjoyed listening to your conversation.

As I listened I jotted down a few notes (a habit from attending years of work meetings) 'Job not done' - 'level of togetherness' ' starting to feel like one club again'.

All credit to you all for taking the initiative and making this happen. If you are up for taking requests I think it would be good if - in a future chat - you could take a look at the youth set up and in particular what their objectives are and to introduce a few of the personalities involved - it may just be me but I've no real idea who is running these sides now, though have very much enjoyed my visits to NMP to watch the U18 games which, without exception have been v. entertaining.
