You did use the SPL to make your point and he responded to that to be fair. 

 

Then he didn't understand the point very well.

 

I said this season's Premier League has an even less competitive title race than the SPL. As in, the SPL being the lowest possible standard of title race and yet this Prem season being somehow even worse.

The  turnstiles need to come back where you didn't need to get tickets first, just hand cash over. How did they still know the exact attendance announced in them days at half time. By click or somet. 


by counting how many go in

How many have we sold up to now then ?

 

Looking at online sales very few. 

 

Including City fans probably below 18,000. 

 

Very embarrassing me thinks,

Very few would moan if prices were at a sensible and sustainable level.

 

Charging fans £25/30 for this fixture when we’ve been in such poor form this year was a mistake by the club.

 

The fans aren’t to blame for the club’s lack of common sense here.  And I think the little snipes at our supporters by you in the last couple of pages are uncalled for.

 

 

@bradowl @dan1980

Explain why you negged this post?  What is it you disagree with?  Do you not think that our poor form has contributed to poor ticket sales?

 

I've negged you again. :tango:

 

We're playing one of best teams in Europe, prices seem very fair to me, bargain price for kids. 

 

Recent poor run as affected sales but being on TV as contributed too. 

 

Neither affects my decision on going, we've been crap before and we'll be crap again but I'll still keep going. 

 

It's what loyal supporters do.

Well as far as I’m concerned kudos to the 13.000 or so that are willing to show their support for the team in the face of adversity.

Agree with this. The standard of La Liga has dropped of last couple of seasons with Barca having an unbalanced squad, Real losing Ronaldo and Atletico losing a couple of key players but at least they have a title race. 

Good to see Serie A becoming more competitive this season as you say and the Bundesliga has a fairer structure than the PL.

 

The quality of City and Liverpool is some of the best in the world no doubt but the league as a whole is not up to the hype. Leicester have looked good but Man Utd, derided all season, could finish top four, as could Spurs & Chelsea who are both nowhere near what they have been in recent seasons. Then you get half the league who will be happy just to be involved for another season if they avoid the bottom 3. 

Agree. It's not that great/interesting a league

If we are selling so few tickets for this game the club has got something wrong. They’ve misjudged how disillusioned people are. Full stop.

As usual.

It’s back the same argument again though isn’t it?

 

The two things people that don’t go to games moan about are ticket prices and the opposition. I’m not paying £40 quid to watch us play Cardiff!

 

so the ticket price, at £25 is around the Mark people argue it should be, and the opposition are one of the top sides in Europe.

 

And yet I would bet most have those who have bought tickets for tonight are season ticket holders.

 

But I’m not going as I’m away, so I’m not entitled to an opinion.

Ticket prices are the same for both games. If tickets were a tenner people still wouldnt go tbh. 

 

Can you blame them?

 

Midweek fixture, it's on BBC1 anyway, team is in dreadful form, threat of relegation looming, no one cares about the cup these days.

 

I think the ticket prices are too expensive.  But it's just one of several reasons why fans aren't bothered about tomorrow's fixture.  The life has been sucked out of the club.

The Arsenal game?

 

Wasnt that when “Carlos the Clown” (as christened on here), was running the team. 
 

Must be mistaken mate, cos I’m assured (on here) he never put a foot right.

 

Kick-a-ball did way more damage to our club than what he got right.  Look at his legacy here.  We're still in recovery from his managerial reign.

 

It was a decent performance against Arsenal's reserves though.

 

Plus he took us to Wembley, where his team couldn't lay a glove on little Hull City in the biggest game this club has had for 20 years.

 

DC couldn't appoint the right manager to save his life.  Luhukay & Monk have both failed.  Carvalhal was the worst of the lot for me.

Good for you.  But just because it doesn't affect your decision to go regardless of whether we are shít to watch or not, doesn't mean it won't be part of other fan's consideration.

 

And why shouldn't it?  £25/30 is on the expensive side when we are so shít to watch IMO.

The FA Cup has become a joke, and initially made so by the worst side of Manchester.

it's a case these days of which prem junior side is playing which hopeful EFL side.
Yet


Here was the perfect chance to drag people back to the club, a prefect opportunity.

Yet again squandered due to GREED. This chairman can't think two steps ahead, let alone ten.

Get the place full and give the players a chance of a win bonus, get the pride back into the club.

The players don't give a to55 about the club, but they do money. That's obvious. So play to their needs and at least

give the fans some hope.... No....Instead..... you get this.

 

Total apathy for a game that should have seen Hillsborough bouncing again. We bounced against Wycombe

and had the place thundering, and now we get.... silence.... against a club that should have meant a full house.
 What the hell does that tell you about the utter destruction this chairman has brought on this club ? 

He's been conned ( His naivety ) Stubborn ( His pride ) and foolish ( We are family )

 

Up the Owls

I hate to say that I don't think 10 quid tickets would have boosted numbers that much. 

 

I don't even think its disrespect for the FA Cup amongst our fans.

 

This is everything to do with current form, the joyless experience of going to games for over 3 years now with our playing style and a dis-satisfaction with how the Club is being run. 

 

So you have season ticket holders who aren't bothered. 

 

Our POTG strategy has basically done what a lot of us suggested would happen, that casual fan base that would ordinarily snap up tickets like gold dust have been lost - possibly for good. Reaped what was sown there.

Live on the BBC, I'd want at least a tenner to go and watch it

Poor sales. Suppose the recent form and being on telly doesn’t help! It will be embarrassing to see the ground half empty.

 

Is £30 to much for non-members? I think so. 

 

£20 for adults, £10 for u18’s/OAPS anywhere in the ground would have been much more appealing. 
 

I’ll be there though UTO

Nowt to do with the ticket price tonight.

 

It's all due to fans fed up of us being spanked and the team showing no fight.

 

It's that simple.

Yes it has something to do with ticket prices , only way Chansiri would get away with charging so much and filling the stadium is if we were riding high and playing well , it’s on tv , midweek , fans who have been recently are mentally scarred that’s for sure but £30 in the kop is too much , chance to help out the long suffering fans and as per he’s blown it

Me and young one,aged 6,are season ticket holders and not attending tonight.

Reason- he is 6 and usually in bed for 8,I will make an exception and let him stay up and watch on tv.

He is gutted that he cannot go but his sleep and schooling come first.

So to me it's not about how much the tickets are,but the FA making the last 16 ,of a once great cup competition,to be played midweek.

I am sure there are lot more parents/grandparents who would have attended this game with there young ones,if it had been a weekend game.

So I am not laying the entire blame on our club,as I feel the FA have once again showed lack of respect to the Cup and fans.
