Ok , i'm doing my best Bob Geldof impression here - Uncle Ron is totally skint + we all need to dip our fingers in our pockets + raise some extra cash to stop our club from dying.
Here's some ideas -

1. Introduce a weekly vote for 1 player to put in the stocks in the Roots Hall car park pre match ( and a further phone vote for another player post match ! ) ..... Then we all pay £1 to queue up + chuck old fruit / wet sponges / something harder + sharper at them until they beg for forgiveness and promise to actually try next week.

2. Hold a fan auction now for the 20 highest bidders to sign for the club before the january window shuts. Those 20 will get picked in the match day squad for 1 game each and will be guaranteed a minimum 10 minutes playing time as a sub . Lets face it we are relegated anyway so there's nothing to play for , any of us cant really do any worse than what the players have shown us already , and the extra entertainment will give us world wide publicity. ( we are already a laughing stock )

3. Make Liam Ridgewell wear a sandwich board saying "sorry" on match days and for every £10 raised by fans he has to walk an entire lap of the pitch to hear our fans' polite get fit soon messages + general good wishes.

......Any other daft idea's to help dear old Uncle Ron get us out of this mess? ................
