    Anyone remember that bloke that was collecting last season for a big giant flag that would cost £1000's?.
    Anyone heard any more about it? Or was it just some geezer collecting money for the crack?

    Covkingchris was the one collecting, he gave the money to the club and they said they would buy it themselves and they basically took the money and he hasn't heard from them since...

    Well they put £300 towards it, and I think they said they had contacts to get it cheaper?

    Flame retardant?

    We'd have to get fans to carry it round, too many empty sections to pass it over.

    Why don't they pass the giant strip they wave in the middle out to the crowd. When they did it last season it got people involved more creating a bit more atmosphere.

    Chris should phone. Unless he's lying and the money went on his new glasses.

    I raised some money before the Leeds game, and the club said they'd send a steward to collect the money, but they didn't so I took it to the offices myself.

    At a meeting prior to the game, they said they'd put the rest of the money towards it on top of what I raised. They also told me they would be able too negotiate prices too and the woman in the offices told me she would ring me.

    I've had no contact from the club with anything to do with it.

    You now know as much as me.

    With the greatest of respect, who goes into a business with £x, hands over the general publics money and does not take any details of whom they are giving it to? I suggest you contact [email protected] to try and find out whats going down.

    Has nobody bothered to contact the club about it? Because if you are waiting for them to contact you, you will be waiting until you're dead. This is exactly the reason I didn't donate myself, Cov fans can't organise anything!
