Can you guys let me know if you can see the photo 

if you can great, this is evidence that we should be competing at the top end of the league as our income is going to be a lot higher than a lot of the other clubs. 

ok so Leigh, Fev, Newcastle, Bradford and Widnes will have the most money to play with

Yes can see that, very interesting - and if we had not lost so many before good Friday I reckon we have been top of that list

Four home games.3600 v Workington, 3500 v Barrow and 3900 v Leigh.The Batley attendance wasn't given so it must've been 3000 to make a total of 14000 divided by 4.

So add that to the viqi contributions we should be able to sign the players needed to compete at the top of the division and have a decent coach

@martin Looks like the VIQI system will be updated, maybe to a 'Trust Fund' or similar so that it isn't vulnerable in the event of another crash?

Considering the relatively small number of continuing members it performs a valuable support role for the club and long may it continue.

Of course there are always the doubters who distrust anybody and everybody, and presumably never do 'owt for nowt'!! 

It can hopefully still form a low key supplement to keep us alive.

Thanks for the update SG it’s still a valuable commodity other clubs only dream about

There was bound to be a reaction to the recent run of poor results, prior to yesterday. People will also be hit by the cost of living crisis and spending £17/£22 plus to watch may well be too much for some families to bear.

Despite that the Widnes fan base must be the envy of a lot of other clubs and with a win yesterday and some positivity returning in coming games, we could be back to crowds of 3500/4000.

The appointment of the next Head Coach will be critical to the club. Hopefully, it can bring some positivity on the field and consistency within the club by retaining our better players and looking beyond one season. This is made more difficult by the way the game is run, with clubs not knowing what, if any, central funding will be available. At least the Club know what will be available from VIQI for this year and next. Hopefully, whatever is put in place to raise funds from supporters will be equally, if not more, successful than VIQI in future years.

A good result at Sheffield could well set us up for a decent crowd against Bradford on 2 June.

Attendance given on twitter as 2520 for Sunday. Not appalling but not great either. Hopefully can get close to 4000 for Bradford with it being a Bank Holiday and presumably some good travelling support.

Unfortunately I think we've got no chance of 4,000 for the reason that it is a bank holiday.  I'm a season ticket holder and seriously considering not bothering so I can have a day out with my family whilst we're all off work/school.  I have zero excitement at games now and absolutely nothing to play for other than staying in the division (however there are worse teams than us).

We've lost 1100 fans from the Workington game at the start of the season to the Batley game recently, with little away fans from both sides this is huge - almost 30%! 

Maybe a coach announcement will help, but with no signs of this anytime soon, I fear a really poor attendance against Bradford which should be one of our highest attendances of the season.

The attendance will be 3,000 plus - but only because Bradford will be here in numbers,

Agree, at a guess 3400. But if we had some momentum and were higher up the table it could have been 4500-5000.

The revenue the club is losing is staggering
