Ok, so let's assume we are in administration, and, in these serious times,
Let's have your best (legal or Illegal) cost cutting measures just for fun!

Please NOT getting rid of the Blue belles. But any other funny, serious or downright lucrative suggestions welcome. Some, any or none of the good one's might be passed on to the administrators.

I'll start the ball rolling with Not paying the turnstile operators, but getting volunteers to do it for free match entry after the first ten minutes.!!

Sack the caterers, we could do better doing it ourselves! Actually there's probably quite a lot we could do ourselves in all honesty.

A couple of my friends actually sell the pies etc. around the ground and he said that they are getting paid on time ...... make of that what you will.

That is quite simple the food is farmed out and is nothing to do with the club.

Don't pay for any fancy refs, just get a bunch of blind special needs patients to do the job for free (I have it on good authority that this has been happening since the start of the season).

They'll also do a good job proof reading the reports on the website

I thought they had already started. Did you notice on Friday that the trainer only had one rubber glove, and the goalkeeping coach had 3/4 length tracksuit bottoms.

If every fan brought a torch to a Friday night game we could do away with the Floodlights.

Superb! Those LED ones last for ages - and of course, we would never, ever turn 'em off if the opposition were attacking.

Instead of using the internet to broadcast commentaries via Blues Player just invest in some paper cups and lots of really long pieces of string.

Auction of the names of the stands to the highest bidders, you can also do the same to part of the car park.
They could also only use their away kits when playing southern clubs as they could play shirts vs skins against the northern clubs saving some washing powder in the process

Stop this ludicrous ban on onions, we would sell loads more burgers.

also stop wasting money on clothes for the blue belles, not only would we save on clothes but the gate would double, at least. UTB
