Had a strange experience today and I'm sure I'm not being unreasonable.
Not having a season ticket for a few years due to shift work I got one last season after retirement.
I got a letter from the club saying they noticed I hadn't renewed and if I wanted I could still renew at the early bird price, if not I could produce the letter and have a ticket for todays game for twelve notes.
Having commitments for a few months I thought I'd be best off with a half season ticket later so took them up on the twelve note offer.
Sitting in the Upper I'm mulling it over and as a mate said, I'd be guaranteed a seat so I thought sod it, I'll get one.
We're one down and to be honest I couldn't see us coming back, needing the loo I jokingly said I'd miss the equaliser.
Sure enough, just zipped up and there's a huge roar, but as we know, them not us.
A few minutes in the bar and I'm thinking beat the rush, go get the Stevenage tickets and also pay for a Season ticket.
The office / shop's shut, lights off, doors locked with no one in sight.
Now this is bare minutes before the end so I ask the steward on the Ponny gate about the shop but He's no idea.
I go back, rattle the door and there's a lady vacuuming who tells me the office will be open after the match as the staff are watching the game!!
Just didn't seem very professional to me, in fact I was seething.

So now I've got time to have another think about a purchase.

As far as I know the staff have always watched the game. I understand your point but I'm not sure how much demand there is for tickets whilst the game is on? To be honest I cannot see anything unprofessional about it.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

To be honest though scuntland we had an issue with what you said above with the guiseley tickets two seasons back. People were leaving the game early to get to the front of the queue and were getting served earlier than the people that stayed to the full time whistle, I was "seething" at that.

On a separate note scuntland, I managed to get Hamburg tickets against Dortmund in September. Buzzing! (Town don't have a game that week) 😬


Today we got our team back - town fan leaving Wembley may 2016

The Wednesday night game? You'll enjoy it.
We fly out Tuesday and back Thursday.
Then back on the 29th for Werder Bremen so I'll miss Town tonking the six fingered, carrot crunching, sister fiddlers.

Do they get paid extra for having to suffer that?

I cannot see any issue here at all, the staff have always watched the game. Or is this just trying to find another stick to beat the club with?

FFS!
Yeah, someone who's followed the club since a nipper and wants to batter them at any occasion.
cheers for that.
