just plain lazy relationship management

Like many folk who do not live close to the football team they support, I have signed up for membership to the 'club player' -  mainly so I can listen to the online commentary of all the matches. So this week I got a reminder that my subscription was due. Or rather, they sent an email saying it had run out! So I followed the links and paid for a year's subscription - getting this email in return:
So here's the thing. What do you mean 'Welcome to Forest Player' ? I've been a member for over 10 years - 'Welcome back' would be nice. But if they had informed before the subscription ran out there would have been no need for any welcome - just a more suitable phrase that made me - a supporter of their club for more years than I care to remember - feel as though I was part of the club. 
And yes, I know, the service is run by a third party, not the football club - but the football club should be telling the provider what they should be doing in the name of the club [for club, read brand].

And then a few days later I got this email:

Ho hum.
