Boycott the Man City game

The part timers have packed the club in sadly  - for one reason or another 

Season ticket holders are fed up of seeing not great performances 

 

An extra £25.00 for the loyal supporter is pushing it a touch in current circumstances i think

 

£30.00 to get the not bothered's off their backside for a game thats on telly is just plain pie in the sky  - especially when they haven't made the effort all season 

 

This game needed a bit of bright thinking  - it could have been done as kind of a ''thank you'' (i know it sounds sickly but it's how i've had done it)

 

In the end they charged what most other clubs charge for league games  - never going to go well i'm afraid 

 

£5 for everyone under 17 is a great price to see this game. 

Some may have been lost, a fair few still say their reason for not going is priced based,

 

Tickets go on sale to everyone on the database that has got any points tomorrow - those that have been before but not in the last couple of years.

Some season ticket holders might be waiting for friends/family who are in that situation so they can get tickets together, I know a couple for whom that's the case. Maybe tickets sales will increase again tomorrow. They don't look terrible now as it stands with a week to go, I reckon there will be a decent crowd.

Kids prices in general are great and i hope more than anyone it's a good crowd BUT the club needed to do that little bit extra for this game and i think they've come up short, when a bit of clever thinking might of put the whole club in a good light on the national scene again.

Two things spring to mind if by a thank you, you mean free?

 

1/ That would mean making a loss as the club would still have all the overheads to pay as per a normal match day. This would put us even more in the red regards P&S.

2/ Don't both clubs have to agree on ticket prices?

I’m going because if we get to the Cup Final I can shout ‘part timers’ on Fargate in the way Cougan shouted ‘Dan’.

Don't think clubs have to agree on the price anymore but there is a minimum price set by the FA from possibly the 3rd round onwards of £10.

not free but £15 for season ticket holders wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch for the club 

£20 for others 

 

We are getting telly money so that would cover most costs 

 

Would have been positive PR

Knowing its live on terrestrial TV, and that could have a big effect on the attendance you would have thought DC would have made it as cheap as possible.

What is your point?

You don't care if people go in the first part - then you say everyone should be going as it might be fun?

 

I honestly doubt people won't be attending because they think we might get beat (no one would EVER go then!)

 

I think its a combination of all the little bad things currently surrounding the club and football that has manifested itself in one game and a lot of people have thought s0d it.

 

FA cup - lost it's value 

Midweek

Team losing every week

Club in turmoil

Only Season ticket holders supporting the club

It's on telly

It's not cheap

 

It's a shame it's not a big crowd, of course it is, but the club haven't really read the situation (again!!)

 

It might come across as a bit of a mumbled rant but I was at work.  And it comes across as hypocritical but I didnt have time to edit it.

 

I'm annoyed about the high opinion of some on here thinking their opinion will affect the attendance..As if owlstalk has some kind of sway.

 

If you don't want to go fair enough, but why would you want to crow about it on the internet.  Kind of strange. Like anyone cares.

 

I missed my first home game in about five years when FF scored vs Cardiff  (Couple of seasons ago) when my son was born.  They still won & FF didn't even look up at my empty seat when he scored wondering what had happened to me.

Tbh I think it wouldn’t make a blind bit of difference , I’m guessing people aren’t going for the same reason as me . It’s a pretty mundane and fruitless experience going to hillsborough 

Yep!

Not too fussed about the price. I just literally haven't got it in me.

Going to the next 3 home games is bad enough without adding an extra bit of suffering in.

Attendance makes a difference though?

 

Having 35k there against Arsenal for the 3-0 win made it a different game to only having 21k against Everton this year?

They were both in the League Cup weren't they?  

 

I hate to say it but Arsenal didn't turn up at all that day and probably forgot about it by the next evening.  It was great to see nearly a full house, with families there but I would still have enjoyed it somewhat if there would have been 20k there.   I even went to Newcastle where we genuinely deserved to beat them and it was my first visit there.

 

I didn't go to the Everton game cos it was an early round League cup game against a mid table Premiership team who had more of an incentive to play a full team.

I totally agree with you on this. 

 

Being on here and having no intention of supporting your club I always find as a bit sad and certainly nothing to boast about. 
 

The sad fact is these kind of people don’t need that much of an excuse not to bother to support the club and unfortunately the club currently give them loads of excuses. 
 

Even sadder is that these excuses are becoming more valid due to the ineptitude of the club as a whole

The cost isn’t the issue. It’s the apathy around the club. People can’t be arsed anymore. I’ve zero enthusiasm to go tomorrow night as well. 


And miss our first home goal of 2020......?

Will this boycott extend to an away trip to Old Trafford, or a trip to Wembley? If we somehow fluked past City.

 

Cause those games will be on free to view tv

 

If you are sending a message to Chansiri surely you will do it for more than a match.

I don’t think Chansiri can spell PR.

 

and some people on here said £30 was “reasonable pricing” for a match live on BBC1.

So have all you part timers decided if you’re going yet or not? Make your minds up.

 

Noticed a few who were making a lot of noise initially are breaking ranks and creeping back in....

Posts like this are more likely to make fan division than a cup attendance..
