Wait just a cotton pickin' minute there owd lad, it says we play Telford[glow=red,2,300]OR[/glow] Margate, seems to me your assuming Telford have already beaten Margate (although i think and hope they will)

By not giving price reductions, as promised, I feel the Board loses some credibility.
It makes my think are they pure money grabbers. I know they have put money in to keep the club going but it says to me they are now looking for a return on their investment.
My thinking then goes to the New Meadow, is the building work not happening because certain people are not making money from the deal.
Now it doesn't matter one bit whether I am right or wrong but if people start not to trust you, you are on a slippery slope. When you really need people's backing will they respond?
I was always told if you make a promise you keep it. I don't like it when I am lied to. If there are no price reductions or incentives before the end of the season I will feel I have been lied to.
Funny thing with this is I am not looking to get in cheaper but it is an opportunity to attach more fans. For me with the extra revenue we have gained this season, under 12's should be free or £1 for the rest of the season.
Alternatively there should be a well published campaign of vouchers for free admissions to school children when they attend with an adult. Ideas should be aimed at kids(let the tax dodgers pay full whack )
Sorry I wil get off my soap box now.
You're not wrong there Martin owd lad, the club are playing a dangerous game, it's far easier to keep an existing fan than win back a disgruntled one!

I agree ppp the club are playing a dodgy game, as a season ticket holder i would lose out on reduced prices, other then cup games. The fact they promised, lacks credibility and lets face it it is not certain that we will gain promotion and therefore as a marketing ploy, lets generate good will toward the club even if we do not go up. I also accept the money issue, but realistically if we do not go up this year how many of the present squad will be here next year? I feel that the club have to make a gesture to the fans that they value the input and support, and if they are taking seriously the umbrella groups suggestions then lets see evidence of it, rather the using it as a way to pacify and placate the fan base.
top idea pilch.im a season ticket holder and i would love town to make this game a freebie .what do other s/t holders think?[/quote]
Yup, I'd go along with that.
However me and MartinB were talking about this in the car on Saturday. Some season ticket holders may not be happy with the decision so why not give them a voucher for say 20% off in the cub shop. It's a nice jesture and if people do take up the offer the money they spend will be going to the club shop
what people expect? The club was always going to screw us over this season, in one sense its in their best interests to (they don't know when their going to have another season like this one-gates wise).
I'm not saying its right, but it was always on the cards, and to be honest I didn't expect anything less.
