I better get myself down to the BP ticket office prior to midday Monday so I can get my wife a free ticket for the Carlisle game with my season ticket.

Ye don't like her much then 😂😂😂


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

What annoys me is this is the best the club can come up with as advertisement.

So is it a reward for the loyal support. Or just desperate measures to try and prevent an embarrassingly low Bank Holiday turnout ?  
At the moment I won’t be going. Might change my mind but don’t think I will.
However, if MJ came out early and said he was giving the youngsters a game from the start then I would definitely be there.


You just have to accept that in life:

Some days you are the statue.

”in order for season ticket holders to redeem this free ticket, season ticket books must be presented to staff in the ticket office to be marked prior to midday on either match day. This will prevent unnecessary ticket office congestion prior to kick-off.“

Phwoar, what a battle-cry! They really know how to get the blood pumping!

You will be sat in the Findus and she will be sat in the main stand or the Osmond. doubt if she will be able to be sat next to you unless you ask everyone to move down.But then it is something to get the gate up-but why wasn.t something done throughout the season

So, if I'm getting this right due to the very late announcement.. The only time available to take up the offer of a free ticket with a season ticket for the Carlisle game is to go to the ticket office on the morning of the game and then go home again as the match kicks off more than three hours later and then make the same journey to the game later that afternoon. And all because they expect congestion for their staff who have to use a pen to tick off the season ticket book and print out a ticket? And also dole out refunds to those that have bought at full price and reprint another ticket out, even though possibly no one has bought one hence the panic at the club for a Bank Holiday fixture? And all the while the club staff are on the phone answering questions over the confusion or faffing about nature of the offer. Must be far easier than a click online and having a plastic credit sized card that could be swiped at the turnstile all in one go. And noticeably, with the average age of our fanbase increasing and the lack of younger support, the offer doesn't extend to junior season ticket holders who could have brought one of their mates along..

On top of that Carlisle are going to bring quite a few so the income from the travelling support will be cut by 30%, as it would likely to be too late to stimulate a spike in away support, while the expected tiny take up from the home fans for discounted tickets has no chance of offsetting that deficit. Season ticket holders can't even give their season ticket away never mind find someone else to go with of find poor souls that want to stump up fourteen quid to watch a team bereft of everything. Back of a fagg packet marketing using a tinpot system on a game that should have been left alone at this late stage and been better thought through and executed for the Crewe game..

It would be laughable if it wasn't my club..

Usually with my season ticket if i want to bring a friend along or a family member they try and charge me   13 quid to move my seat so we can sit together.
They speak to me like I am a piece of excrement for asking.
They can shove it for next season.
