If we win Saturday . . . . . . .

Recommended Posts

 

Ok. You're right. I believe, I believe. It's on. Its coming home. Etc.

I never thought I'd be in this position again.

And we've got form in late season pushing.

We are in a decent position IMHO. I'm impressed with Bruce so far (there ... I've said it!)

 

Enough points to play for.

 

But some tricky fixtures looming. Momentum is the key ...

 

UTO

 

lol

Good idea....but

If we beat Blackburn and Stoke, then Villa, Forest straight after at home. Will be close if not sold out anyhow.

That only leaves Bristol and QPR to play, if still in it, will be sold out or very near

If we lose to Blackburn and Stoke, we probably wouldn't sell many at £15 a ticket.

 

Doesn't make financial sense, though the gesture would be nice...the bottom line is all that matters nowadays

Look at the form table if you're worried about momentum...

 

Something wonderful is going to happen.

No.

Im a season ticket holder and wouldn't care in the least if the last few games were a tenner each. Many would though. In my opinion.

Remember the furore over the weekend only season tickets a few years back when some felt they were missing out? We have a significant fan base that doesn't like their deal being undermined by something better turning up later. You only need a couple making a vocal complaint to make the OP's suggestion "more hassle than it's worth".

How much per game is a season ticket costing , if it’s under £20 , on the kop ,well it won’t be undermining the loyal fan if it’s over then I can understand some fans moaning . Any idea that fills our ground is ok with me . I do see your point though mate .

Brum's hearing next week, seems nailed on 12pt deduction which would put them right in the relegation battle...and some very tough matches coming up.(preston, leeds, w brom and the piggies) Could well be bottom 3 in a couple of weeks.

 

They are at Preston Saturday, hope they can get something:biggrin:

Unfortunately, the type of fan you're targeting are the sort that will think "hmm! If we lose the first two I don't want to go to the last two...so that would mean I've paid double to go to the first two. Boo...Chansiri out"

Thanks..........................................not so sure about the "nailed on" 12 point deduction tho,any punishment given then sets a precedent,we could be next.

Yep, the Telegraph is a bit cautious of stating as a fact, but most commentators seem sure the penalty will be 12.

It seems they will get two penalties, 6 for breaching ffp and a further 6 for taking no notice of the embargo, so 6 could be a precedent ...... it won't affect us though as they have no authority over the prem :biggrin:

We will be at most 4 points off the playoffs and could be only 1 point away so with only 4 games left at home, interest growing and with an international break should our marketing and financial departments be looking into the viability of selling a 4 game package of tickets to try and get some of the fans back that have stayed away because of high prices and also get Hillsborough rocking to  create an atmosphere to spur the team on in these important games.

 

With a very high percentage of our home crowds being made up of season ticket holders (my guess about 85% to 90%) I’m sure we’d knock a few thousand out at least, especially with 3 out of the 4 visitors being around us and are also looking for a playoff spot, not to mention being a couple of the biggest teams in the championship with Villa and Forest.  Bank Holiday matches used to attract bigger attendances too (remember nearly 30,000 for the visit of lowly Swindon Town in the Premiership in the 90’s) and so the visit of Bristol City also could be a massive game in the scheme of things and lastly the final game of the season with the not so glamorous Q.P.R but this could be the game that  clinches a playoff spot so again is potentially a massive game.

 

With the next game being Stoke on 30th March and after payday for most this would give them a 2 week window to push a package with the added bonus that the money will be in the bank before the end of the financial year to maybe help our F.F,P and if things go Pete Tong against Stoke people will already have committed to the 4 match package (terms and conditions should say no refunds once purchased)

 

Doing this we can still sell tickets to the away fans at whatever price Wednesday have decided where I’d guess Vila and Forest would definitely sell out even at £39 a ticket.

 

Purchases of this package could also receive priority for any playoff game after season ticket holders and members.

 

Kop £80

 

North and Grandstand £100

 

South £120

 

How many do people think we’d sell?
