When is enough - enough?

Recommended Posts

My Mums a Kop season ticket holder - she left on 77 minutes on Saturday. She'll always come to Hillsborough, absolutely no question of her ever not renewing her season ticket, but hates everything about us at the moment, the dour football, and feels like the club is being run slowly into the ground.

 

On the way out she ended up chatting to another lady, who said she'd spent £900 on season tickets for this year - and her and her husband hadn't had a holiday for 2 years due to the increased cost. She said that they've both decided that based on everything they have seen, and are seeing, they'll both be having a holiday next summer and not bothering with season tickets.

 

Ive consistently had a season ticket for years with only a very short break during Allens tenure - i caved in on the final day of sales this season and bought one, but even now I'm not sure if I'll bother next year. I can't say Ive really enjoyed going to Hillsborough for about 2 years now.

 

What is your watershed? When will you decide you've had enough?

Wouldn't turn my back on the club, might be naive, but I don't think I could go without a season ticket.

The football is a bit dour, but it could be worse.

I've got to the point where instead of moving heaven and earth to swap shifts, do favours so I could get matches off... I can't bearsed...something has got to change down there. To cap it all off I've just about finished paying for the next two years season tickets lol

I'll stop going when D Taxis hit the road and Elev8 sports drinks hit the shelves. Until then I'm in.

I’m priced out already , never felt so disillusioned and distant from our club .

Felt like l'd had enough at Wigan tbh with a feeling of here we go again Just doesn't seem the same anymore. Fans arguing n scrapping with each other seems to have defined the season. How we finished top six going into the international break God only knows.

Going to be a big drop.

 

Loads of fans 3 year deal will be ending, SWFC want you to renew (early bird) just after Xmas (I think) when money is tight for some. I'm guessing a price freeze. 

 

Certainly not having another 3 year deal, just go year by year.

 

I think we all know ST holders now who don't go / had enough.

Not a ST holder because of working shifts and living down in Coventry. However, last season, I was a regular POTGer, and always enjoyed going, even if the results didn't always come in. This season, however, I haven't bothered - a combination of POTG prices, travelling, having to use up annual leave, and a young family just means it isn't really 'worth it' in the grand scheme. Honestly, I can't say I've missed going, either, and that's a shame - there's just too much murkiness (?) right now.

I know of six season ticket holders in my family alone that have all said they will not renew for next season.

We didn't renew after last seasons horror show and money problems.

 

We were discussing getting a half season ticket but not now.

 

Seems we made a good choice.

I won't stop but the best bit of match day is the boozer before.

I left school in '76 and have a ST every year apart from once when we gave Yorath the job.

I said I'd pay on the day but went to about 8 games so decided to get a ST again.

I can't stop. Rough with the smooth and all that.

I had a dream last night that we lost the derby 10-6 (they did have Vardy playing for them though) and when the 10th went in, Jos put on a little rucksack and started walking out of the stadium.  

 

I think that's when it will be enough.
