Good move by the Club. I still feel they could have gone cheaper to try and recover some of those fans that have disappeared over recent months.

I’m not convinced that these prices will have a huge impact on the gate unless.......There is a New Manager in place for that game.

I think it’s an EFL initiative rather than the club’s.

The idea that Notts county had was brilliant (imho)

£2 a ticket and a near full house, high club shop sales, bars/food busy


on our way
We're on our way
To the conference
We're on our way

How do we get there
Through bloody inept management of a football club that's how

A good idea yes but vast difference in capacity so a real winner for them not so much for us

Bradford City have been struggling of late, and their home record is almost on a par with ours, yet they still get just under 20,000 for their home games because of their radical pricing scheme.

Town need every point they can get. They should, theoretically, do much better with a packed house behind them every home game. Slash the prices to 50% of normal entry and pack them in.

Season ticket holders may feel aggreived at this, but it's for the benefit of the club in the long run. To counteract any such criticism ensure that current season ticket holders get a discount next season. Barmy? The difference between the amount sold if we're back in the National League, as compared to a team that has stayed in the Football League, and started to win back the hearts and minds of fans would be immeasurable. Just do it.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

As said before I can't see it making too much of a difference to the gate and the club won't make as much money as they would have done if they had charged full. You got to remember there is still a negative atmosphere around the club and we are in horrendous form, It will take more than cheap tickets to boost the attendance, a new manager will boost it even more.

See your point mate, but 4000 extra on the gate (or whatever) would be great. £2 a ticket agree is too low, £5 would be about right

damned if they do damned if they don`t we have been over this countless times over the year`s and when the facts and figures are tallied up it`s surprising but it usually adds no more than 1k on even at £5.Totally the right thing to do but grossly unfair on STH and I hope the Club lay on some free buses for them to an away game to thank them for their support.In this area there are a lot of low income families and former Town fans who might be able to come and bring a kid to this game now at £12.I hope we see a massive turnout but historically it will add between 500-1k to the gate which still could make hell of a difference if the team can play well.UTM
