I heard a Town fan in the pub tonight saying that he wasn't going to Wembley because the conference league was ripping people off with tickets. Great idea, boycott it,that will show them. Does he not think that the conference would love for Town to stay in this shirt league? It's Town that will suffer dipshit when he and other like him don't turn up at Wembley to support our club.


I remember when codalmighty was funny.

Did you tell him what you thought at the time or are you hoping he reads it on here?

I think the league would much rather Rovers stay down more than us based on the fact they have a bigger support and travel in more numbers dont you?

Fans don't win games anyway. People complaining about price etc are doing just that, cutting their nose off to spite their face.

Why spend all season supporting a team and then in the game that matters most you decide not to go because of a booking fee? Yes there's no need to only sell them online but in modern day Britain do we still think people care about the masses?

The conference are in a win win situation, whoever loses stays in their league and pushes up the numbers at games and is a draw for the league.

The worst outcome for the conference would've been Rovers winning the league and us winning the playoffs, or vice versa.

So far it's cost me

£92 for tickets/post/fee
£84 train tickets/tube tickets
£11 for parking at Grantham
Still to pay for fuel to the station, it's an early start so breakfast, lunch and tea will all be bought in and around London.

Would I rather have £300 in the bank and not be there should we win??

Would I balderdash!!!!!

Someone can't or doesn't want to go.

Rather than preaching high and mighty about the importance of going to the game we should be respecting their decison.

I have no problem with people not going on principle. Lack of principles is why football is in such a state and the Conference are charging £45 for a fifth tier game.

It is a simple case of economics for some.  It would cost £41.35 for my ticket, then another £35 for coach travel.  I am my wifes carer, so would need to get a carer in to look after her ' £9 per hour. How long would I be away?  14? 15? 16 hours?  My income is £68.35 a week, so work it out

So not everyone is biting their nose off to spite their face


IF YOU PLAY FOR THE BADGE ON THE FRONT OF YOUR SHIRT
THEY WILL REMEMBER THE NAME ON THE BACK OF IT





You can change your wife, your house, your car, but you can never change your team.
Chairmen come and go, boards come and go, but the fans remain.
They are the one true constant
