Some of the people on here...

 

The club are offering a range of season ticket deals for a range of budgets... You don't go on a estate agent website and criticise them for having million pound houses listed. If you can't afford the million pound house don't look at it, it's not for you.

 

There's a one year deal, the same as previous years.

 

"But the early bird deadline is two months earlier..." True, so instead of 12 months to save £455 you've had ten months, so at £37.92 per month (regular saving amount to pay for your season ticket) you might be £76 short... Or alternatively you've been blindsided by the fact that you need to pay for a new season ticket (breaking news: you'll have to pay for your new season ticket). If you've saved up monthly you could probably find £76, if you've not you're criticising the club for your inability to forward plan.

 

I think the ten year plan is a good idea, not many will take it up in which case the liability on the club to finance it moving forward won't be too onerous. If it proves more successful than expected then the club have the get out of jail free card of it being a limited offer ("Sorry, you missed out").

 

It's like anything - risk and reward. Do not invest money you cannot afford to lose... Same principal that should apply to every purchase you ever make, be it buying a banana or a million pound house.

 

I know it's not the point youre making but when you buy a million pound house you can pretty much guarantee it will be worth more than that in 10 years time allowing you to make a profit on your investment.

 

Buy a 10 year season ticket for Sheffield Wednesday and all you have in 10 years is the option to buy another to watch another 10 years of championship football lol

It's not a sweet shop.. it's not a second hand car showroom.. it's the club you love.

The club is being badly mismanaged. 
 

I really struggle to see how we progress with an owner this incompetent short of pulling off a miracle and getting promoted. There is nothing sustainable about any of this.

I'm only halfway through the thread but a couple of points that spring to mind. 

 

As a fan it can only provide current good value for a long time season ticket holder/perspective.  Getting a minimum of 15yrs even at current prices is bloody good value. The only drawback would be a worry over a transfer of ownership or administration and how the wording applies should that situation arise. 

 

As a club, I can't see it making much difference to overall P&S, and as a fan it does make you question the longer term viability in this offer and whether it identifies an underlying issue. 

 

But as a second thought, does this cash injection also allow DC to also put even more money back into the club as P&S states is allowed to be matched? As the more income in, means the more he can match without penalties (if I remember correctly and a not barking up a tree in the wrong forest of course). So any money in now can effectively be doubled for a bigger push. 

 

Now I'm not saying that's right, but it's a possibility. (Now how this all ties into the current legal challenges or not, who knows, as the deadline means the transfer window would be closed, so you can't invest now, but you'd expect that decision to have been made by the summer too, where an embargo could or could not be in place... . So like everything else as is the case of late, its a throw of the coin as to what you believe).

 

Of course that doesn't take away from the other questions and concerns being levied.  As a fan I have to say as stupid as some see this offer, I would take it up if I had the cash, as I'll be there no matter what, but I won't ridicule those who don't see or agree with the value, neither would I be against anybodies concerns or even faith in this offer. 

 

Unfortunately, the full proof will only be clear further down the line. Let's hope its the right one and I can find a winning bet to cover the cost haha.

Tell that to my mate who just spent £11k on a second hand car, only for the engine to seize after 4 months!

 

But the point is that nothing in football is certain, or every club would be selling tickets to the title parade.  There are 24 teams every year with a chance of going up.  You buy your ticket hoping it's us.  People seem to have short memories.  The season ticket prices under DC have barely increased (not at all for 4 years now).  In that time we've gone from relegation fodder to promotion hopefulls most years.  It might not be pretty off the field but you know what, of the 25000 people that turn up every week, I'd be amazed if more than 2000 actually gave a sh*t about what DC is doing behind the scenes.  They just want to go watch their team play and hope they can win the game.  Owlstalk / Twitter / Facebook is not a barometer of the fanbase, it's a microcosm.
