If the club waited until all the PSFs had been arranged before an announcement there would be dozens on here complaining that their e.g. Ipswich fans had known since May so why weren't we told!

Fair point but my point is Potters bar have released a list of 8 or 9 games & we can only drip feed 1!

Why do you care so much? It's a pre-season friendly and it's possible the club can't even confirm certain fixtures yet either.

We all love our clubs but can sometimes become obsessed with wanting to know everything 24/7 with the ins and outs of Barnet.

I'm surprised no one has asked for a live stream of TK's office at all times so we know what he's up to.

It's called passion for your club.
You know, like enjoying a cup run?

Nope its about having a social calendar & liking to know how to plan things around them ie buying tickets for t20 cricket matches & then finding they clash!

Some real crowd pullers there.....I am sure TK~ is trying to get a Premier League side too - sadly Premier League teams are not interested in supporting grass roots any longer.
Let's see

Jerroll has a fair point here. Many people need to make plans, schedule social stuff, book travel, talk to partners, or sort childcare etc etc. Getting fixtures out early and in one batch makes all that planning a lot easier to do. And making it more convenient and easy to plan boosts attendances.

Since when has the club ever thought about the Fans, or tried to make things easier for them. Then they wonder why Fans don't turn up.

I suspect it has to do with the fact that the club wants the most attractive opposition possible, at least for the home friendlies. My guess is we invite lots of clubs and then have to wait for Arsenal and Spurs to say no, before we reluctantly accept that Millwall and Brentford is the best we can do.

Suspect this could be our marquee PSF and the club could be trying to give as much notice as they can of the PSF that is likely to clash with supporters social calendars instead of waiting for the full list. How many are really likely to put off an alternative event to make an away PSF at Burnhma Ramblers or similar ?
