Big night out in town last night would account for some of it. I didn’t go because i was out but my ST was used.

The thing is though if we had been playing well I would have gone to what would have been a big game.

I’ve been gutted to miss any home game in the past but I have to say it didn’t bother me a deal last night.

This exactly sums up my situation last night.

 

Works Christmas do, had a really enjoyable night in town, gave my season ticket to a mate, wasn’t that bothered to be fair and didn’t bother finding a pub that had it on although if we weren’t so dire at the moment I’d have sacked the do off and gone to the match.

Wednesday fans there tonight. Well done all. 

 

It's easy rocking up supporting a team playing well, big crowds, big games. When the chips are down, the real fans turn out. Just hope there arn't 350 threads on here bemoaning the lack of tickets etc the next time we have a big game. 

 It was £33 minimum potg

All this talk of boycott is a load of crap. Consider the conditions:-

1.The weather this week has been absolutely filthy. Many Wednesdayites come from  outside the city limits, and places like the Peak District being snow covered, temperatures below zero, and the possibility of more snow.and closed roads.

2. The game was on Sky

3. The proximity of Christmas - works do's  proliferataing.

4. The atmosphere at the ground not being at its best.

 

Even this would not have stopped me travelling from Buxton, but health issues at home  prevented this.

It was VIP night for all last night.

Got parked up easy and got away with hardly any traffic.

No queue at the bar. Loads of staff to see my singular order.

Nobody sat either side of me so I could stretch out.

Best of all was that there was plenty of space in the bogs and wasn't subject to breathing in someone else's pisss fog on such a cold night.

Can't understand why teams include Season Ticket holders who don't attend as part of the crowd. Been to every home game and get a little bemused when there's about 18/19000 in the ground and the official attendance is given as 25/26000. Same at Blunt Lane last Friday, crowd given as nearly 26000 when according to a Blunt "mate" of mine the actual attendance was just over 22000. Then watched Reading on TV. Crowd given as 16500 but looked nothing like 10000. And as for Sunderland's "official" attendances, forget it.

Also pathetic turnout for Wolves, didn't look even a thousand fans.

Watched highlights this morning and Chansiri seemed to find something funny about the game, at least Carlos's face showed passion for the club.

Blunts lose a couple of players and call it an injury crisis, we loose more than half a team so I wonder what that would be called.

The pricing policy has ensured few pay on the gate all season, with the exception of the Sheffield derby which we didn't sell-out.

Yes I agree, but none?...or hardly any. That must be a major worry. When doing well pog are not a problem, when things go apeshitski then he/his financial wizards will now know season ticket sales next season will be well down, maybe as much as 50%, then he will need to adjust to a realistic pricing structure. I thinks his big gamble has all but exploded. It could have been so different, we could have been contenders. Nearly all could see what was coming...except the ones that matter, the chairman, his vvank advisors and CC.

 

The concern now is a relegation battle, CC was intent on not losing, boring every foooker to death, but it didn't so much matter several games ago, (apart from frustration from the fans) It will soon become very urgent we win, can he do that? I doubt it.

 

I still think we have a decent bunch of players whom are responsible for keeping us out of the baba thus far. If we had an average bunch of players with CC as manager we would be rock bottom of the league already. Pound for Pound CC is the worst manager we have had in 40yrs. AIMHO of course.

Hopefully a wake up call for Dejphon Chansiri.

 

I know people say “he’s not bothered if ST holders turn up or not, he’s already got their money” but I don’t buy that argument.

 

If I were him and ST holders weren’t showing up to matches I’d be wondering how likely are these people to renew if they aren’t showing up now and they’ve already paid.

 

Personally I think our season ticket sales for next season will be shaped very much by the actions of our chairman over the next month.

If he is a businessman he will no doubt see that his income is dwindling and can't allow that to continue indefinitely.

If I want to attend a game I'll be damned if I'm going to pay premium prices on the gate for sub-par football - if two of us go it's the thick end of £100 by the time travel and refreshments are factored in.

Saddens me to say it, but at that price I've got better things to spend my money on.

DC & CC can think again if they expect the casual supporter to stump up that kind of money for very limited entertainment.

Give us value for our £ and we will show our support.

ST holders have my total respect & sympathy, having paid up front.

If crowds continue to dwindle no doubt ticket prices will be ramped up to make up the shortfall in lost revenue.

No doubt escalated by a few piglets desperately trying to stir things up
