Chansiri on fans wanting season ticket refunds "sometimes they act like a customer or maybe worse than a customer"

It wasn't when we were doing ok, didn't have FFP issues, didn't have a 12 point deduction, when were weren't sacking managers every week, when the club weren't taking a year to refund season tickets, when we had a quality squad, when the club actually communicated regularly with fans etc etc etc etc etc

 

etc etc etc

 

It wasn't then

 

He’s only the chairman, what’s he supposed to do about all that?

Our cinema ticket price is up there with the highest in the country. 
 

We’re being shown Police Academy 6 on repeat.

 

I think we’re well within our rights to ask for more and, point out what we’re receiving is poor. 
 

What are we going to do about it though that’s the question! 
 

Absolutely frightening logic.

Thats not the problem at all

 

Its our selfish fans not answering the calls. The club have said it themselves on email

 

Maybe if the club called from a Sheffield phone number instead of one used by those ambulance chasers claiming you have had a car accident you know nowt about, them maybe the fans would answer the call

Did the chairman thank the fans today for their support during 2020? Did he thank the fans who are spending money at the club? Paying for Ifollow etc? 
 

Just wondering? I’m sure he would have done. 


He went for the bold “I’ll just attack everyone for not spending enough and question them as fans as a result” approach.

 

Lets see if it pays off!

I’m owed £99 sumat.

 

My options were refund, vouchers, ifollow & academy iirc.

 

There’s nothing in the shop for me to spend vouchers on. I’ve tried spending cash before and again there’s been nothing on the shelves. 
 

iFollow just isn’t worth the money being asked as a service. 2-3 of the games were on Sky too so you were essentially paying £99 to watch 6-7 games at the time, on an iPad. 
 

Our policy of promoting kids from the academy seems to be wait until they’re worth something then offer them a pro contract on peanuts so they leave for free. He’s called Shaw out today for asking for more by the looks too. 
 

I would’ve happily chucked the money towards next years season ticket but he had nearly £500 off me in January for that. 
 

So other than ask for it back, I’m not sure what else I was supposed to do. Because if we’re ‘only feeling sorry for ourselves’ like he says he is, why should I feel sorry for him?

Emotional blackmail. I said in another thread is what it is. 

 

I am sick to death of being treated like a mug from this shambles of a football club.

 

I am also sick of seeing our once famous name going through all the negative press of sacking managers, being seen as cheats, not paying players m and breaking the rules time and time again. 
 

The one positive, in an ironic way, is this will galvanise the entire fan base in turning against him. He keeps digging himself that hole time and time again with these constant snide comments.

Personally think Chansiri is the lowest of the low. 

 

He's like some Thai Scouser, always the victim and never his fault. Can honestly say I despise the man and the sooner he's driven out of this club the better.

 

He's 100% reaping what he's sown with us fans and I have zero sympathy.

I wonder how much Chansiri's decision to sack Pulis rather than come to a mutual agreement has cost the club?

 

The BBC are reporting that "Pulis offered to leave the club under mutually acceptable terms, which would have meant he relinquished his pay-off."

 

If the chairman is in a position to turn down a mutual agreement in favour of paying off a second management team in as many months, then surely refunding the fans shouldn't be such an issue.

 

For those who are really struggling right now, it must be galling to know that your season ticket money is now going into Pulis' back pocket thanks to the chairman who thinks you're 'worse than a customer' for wanting your money back.

Ive said before that I'm a life long wednesday fan who lives in Leicester. About 3miles from King Power stadium. 

 

Whilst Chansiri owns this football club I'm finding it impossible to make the trip up to Sheffield to bring my five year old son up as an owl. Leicester are a lovely club with wonderful owners. I never imagined I'd ever even think about my son being anything other than an owl but Chansiri has changed that. 

I live about 10 miles away and while being in Tier 3 is frustrating on many counts for many people, one upside is I don't have to go and sit and watch that shower of poo. I never thought I would feel this way but I'm getting out of the habit and finding other things to do.

Ive been to about 5 games in the last 3 seasons due to my health and lockdown.  I’ve kept my season ticket throughout all this time literally cos I’d rather the club have my money so I feel like I’m contributing, and the tickets there IF I have been able to physically find the strength to go. During that time I think my season tickets been used by someone else a handful of times. Otherwise, pre lockdown, my seat was just unused.
 

I didn’t ask for a refund last season cos I was conscious of our financial situation and liked actually having a home and away stream.
 

Not asked for a refund this season, but not tuned into many games. Very apathetic about how we’re playing but again at least I felt like I was at least contributing. In ordinary times, no lockdown/no injury id grin and bear it so I thought I’d try and keep that attitude at least. I wanted the club to have my money.

 

Never again. Not now he’s said that he doesn’t feel like the fans have helped at all. Not whilst he’s in charge. I’ve never felt so disconnected from the club.

 

What a weapon.

First of all,what you did epitomizes commitment to me,you simply couldn't ask more of a supporter(though it wasnt asked,better still,it was given freely,& willingly)

To have said commitment thrown back in your face leaves a very bitter taste....When i think of you doing that,& footballers drawing 30,35 grand a week....or not playing at all...makes my blood boil......

I salute you sir..

Problem is there is still a large section of the fanbase who think he’s still a hero because he spent a bit of money. 
 

It’s frightening. ‘He gave it a go’ seems to outweigh the financial mismanagement, eye watering high prices, contempt for the fanbase and our name being dragged through the mud in the press and on online.

The number that called me is the ticket office number as listed on the website, plus if you haven’t had cause to use the number before it ends in 1867 so there is a little clue as to who it could be?
