  1. The lad wanted a hot-dog on Saturday. Found a place in the fanzone - selling them for £4.00. It looked lovely. Trouble was when he started eating it, it was spicy pork. Too spicy for a nine year old. So I ate it and very nice it was too. (I am aware that is the dullest story ever told...)
  2. Absolutely agree. How many teams run that way have won promotion to the Premier League? Southampton... anyone else?
  3. Fantastic interview. On the FF point it seemed to me that the psychology worked. FF looked well up for it after coming on in both the Millwall and Ipswich games.
  4. There are plenty of evening games before Xmas. If you can't make those then it means that you now need to go to (I think) all the Saturday games. Too limited choice. I believe though at the steering group they talked about another deal after Xmas - maybe 4 or 6 games. Hopefully they will iron out the issues.
  5. https://www.bcfc.com/tickets-membership/ticket/ticket-incentive-scheme/ Not quite this - but on those lines for the kids tickets.
  6. Probably two or three similar/ related ideas living about. Mine are: 1) Cheap seats on the lower West available several times a season at £15/20 a pop 2) Kids groups (with parents/leaders) to be given heavily discounted/free tickets on the grandstand with the belief that the standard of the facilities up there would encourage them to come back Not saying I'm right, and as the meeting has already started I'm a bit late now anyhow :)
  7. I don't think kids should be unaccompanied wherever they go!
  8. This is more what I meant. For certain matches if you fancy going on the day it would be £15/20 and you could pay on the gate.
  9. I sit in the grandstand with my lads and there are often groups of kids up there - football teams and the like. I think that is the place to offer free tickets (if they don't already) - great facilities, good view, set up for kids already. Better that than the dire concourse and poor view from the West Stand :)
  10. As was said above somewhere. Opening the bottom of the West Stand - perhaps by branding it a basic ticket at £15 or £20 a time. Shouldn't upset ST holders or members if branded that way ,- as not every game, and all you get is a match ticket and limited facilities. Should benefit the team as well by having Owls fans on all sides.
  11. Great work, there's Complete Sheffield Wednesday History book that has all the attendances in> https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sheffield-Wednesday-Complete-Record-1867/dp/178091220X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534944932&sr=8-1&keywords=jason+dickinson+complete+sheffield
  12. I've been to several. I agree with this, and sent my thoughts to the club after the last one. An agenda, minutes, action points etc - they are all effective (if a little dull) ways of getting things done. I am glad though that the 6 match ticket bundle thing finally saw the light of day. That was one of the best ideas from previous meetings.
  13. I for one think that the club have listened and acted on it. This was suggested at Steering Group meetings over the last year or two. It's taken time to come to fruition, but glad it has. It suits those who can't attend every game for reasons of work/distance/family etc. It's as flexible as it reasonably possible and given the constraints of the pricing policy more generally, is priced well. I hope they sell '000s of them :)
  14. Liam Palmer, before him Tommy Spurr. - I know star and hero are pushing it for both - but they have had solid careers at a high level.
  15. #kosovanpele :) Love him. Hope he plays and batters Sunderland tomorrow, Brentford on Sunday and anyone else he comes up against all season.
  16. £150 is £25 a game. It might be £25 for Millwall. It won't be for Derby, Forest, L***s etc. If there is a reasonably free choice of games then at this price they should fly out to those who can't justify a ST but who like to go when they can. Any more than this, then the argument is less strong.
  17. £149 on the Kop for members. £179 for non members. Both more than a season ticket but a good discount on POTG prices. Free choice of games with maybe a limit on cat A/B games. Advertise them well, and they'll fly out :)
  18. Yep, I sit up there with my two lads (9 and 7). Plenty of room, easy to get to the bar, decent toilets, bookies easy to use and kids activities before the games. We sit right at the back at the Kop end, and love the view - though I know it's a bit like watching a subbuteo game!
  19. The grandstand is the same price as the north. Really good view and facilities in the grandstand in my humble opinion.
  20. I'm sad enough to have taken a picture. If it's done right it should be a real bonus to those fans who can't justify a full season ticket for reasons of distance/work/family etc etc. Well done to the club for listening I say.
  21. Me and my two lads. Youngest's first away game. Hope he brings some luck with him.
  22. I'm a fan. Seems to want to get the job done in a measured, serious, organised way. Just what we need. And he's had them doing double training sessions over the summer, they'll be the fittest team in the league :)
  23. Can't disagree with any of that. I'm glad that I can (just about) make a ST work for me and my two lads (£23 each in the grandstand). Why the club get some things so wrong I really do not know :(
