  1. Remember listening to praise or grumble and a caller said Guylain was like a black Zidane
  2. We averaged 27k two seasons ago, 26k last season and it’s down to 23k this season. 4,000 people who were going every week at the start of last season have stopped going. And it was the first time we’d played them for over 5 years so there was always going to be more demand for that one
  3. Fair point. Just looking on Forest’s site now at the prices for their next 3 home games. They’re charging £25 against Hull and £28 for the Swansea and Villa games. Under 12s are £6, under 18s are £12 and under 24s are £14. You don’t have to be a gold or silver member to qualify for those prices and Villa will be one of their biggest games of the season. Easy to see why they’re averaging 5k more than us this year
  4. The big draws charge high prices because they still sell out at those prices. I’d understand it if we were. Do you think we should be getting better gates than Middlesbrough and Stoke or is that how big we are now? If Forest and Derby can average 28k, we should be aiming for that aswell
  5. And we’d be able to generate more revenue through advertising with a full stadium. Plus the extra food and beer sales. Chansiri’s pricing makes no sense. It’s like a closed shop for non season ticket holders
  6. We’re 150-1 to get promoted. It’s worth a small bet at those odds. If we beat the pigs and then Derby away in the next two games I’ll start to believe. I think we’d need to win 9 of the last 12 games to make the top 6
  7. With every win and good performance it makes you wonder wtf Jos was doing
  8. The away support is class but everyone who goes away has already got a season ticket. It doesn’t mean we’ve thousands of fans who are going to snap up tickets for a Monday night game at £46 a time. Apart from the Birmingham game (when prices were reduced) we’ve not had more than 23,000 home fans at Hillsborough all season
  9. There’s 8 clubs getting better gates than us in this league so how do you define bigger?
  10. I wouldn’t say it’s embarrassing... it’s as expected really. How many clubs could be midtable in the championship and still sell thousands of tickets to POTGers who’ve not been going all season at £46?
  11. Shouldn’t the club be making an effort to get new fans through the door though instead of just pricing them out and saying we’ve a hard core of 15-20k? Our gates this year are on a par with Middlesbrough, lower than Stoke and comfortably below Derby, Forest, Norwich and the pigs. Historically I’d have said we’re bigger than most of those clubs but we’re not anymore
  12. You think there’d have been nearly 30,000 there if the tickets were priced as they are for the pigs game? Leeds is the only other game this season when we’ve had more than 25,000 there
  13. Did you not notice the highest attendance we’ve had this season was against Birmingham when the tickets were reasonably priced? We’re never going to sell out Tuesday night games but if the tickets were priced correctly we’d be pushing 30,000 for most 3 o clock games
  14. The last time we scored 2 goals in a game was Rotherham at home on the 8th December. Since then we’ve scored 8 goals in 13 games. They’re grim stats. The entertainers we ain’t
  15. Yes the team needs freshening up and definitely needs an injection of pace. Surprised Iorfa and Lazaar haven’t featured yet and I thought Aarons would get a run tonight
  16. Did we get any confirmed offers for him? I like him for his work rate and the fact he’s been fit and available for virtually every game since he signed for us but I’m still not sure what his best position is
  17. I’d like to see a striker with more pace but Fletcher did look decent for Scotland this season when he had runners like Forrest and Fraser to play off him. His hold up and link up play is very good. Too often with us he’s having to feed off long balls with no runners going beyond him.
  18. We wont have sold anything like that this year after the gold and silver membership saga. Ash is trying to spin it like the club do when they say ‘tickets start from £34’. Unless you’ve already forked out £80 or £50 for a membership, it’s £39, £42 or £46 a ticket. Even for a derby game, that’s a scandalous price to watch a team that are 16th in the championship
  19. £34 for members. How many members do we have?
  20. Cant see it. You’re expecting 15,000 POTGers paying those prices for a Monday night game?
  21. It’ll be the lowest crowd we’ve had at home against them in years. £39 cheapest ticket for a Monday night game on sky. We’ll do well to get 28,000
  22. Laughing at Leeds fans waiting outside Elland Road in the cold and Dan James having to drive back down to Swansea. They’ll have had an unveiling video ready for him on Twitter
  23. We can’t go into a season with only Lees, Thorniley and Van Aken as centre halves and Bannan, Hutch and Pelupessy as central midfielders. Hopefully Hector still be here and we’ll sign a midfielder once Jones and Abdi are off the wage bill. If Kieran Lee comes back to fitness he’d be like a new signing
  24. I was trying to get the line ‘Them old legs won’t provide the excitement Master Waddle did but will be just as important to us’ into the Waddle tune
  25. No more 32 year old has beens. We’ve enough of them already. Need to be smarter with the recruitment than giving players one last pay day
