    Do you think we might of had a few more going to Kharkiv if there was loyalty points for attending , I know we’re only a few games into the season but I know of a few lads who have said they won’t go to as many aways if you don’t need to collect the points , this may help fans on lower points get a ticket but it will also means there’ll be less City at matches that don’t sell out . I wonder how many of the City Matters committee who voted to suspend the points system are making the 3 1/2 thousand mile round trip

    I read on here that half the people who bought tickets for the Shaktar game last season didn't bother going. So I wouldn't have said it would make a great deal of difference. The people who want to watch City will go anyway, regardless of the fact they won't get 40 points.

    That’s true but now it doesn’t matter if you go or not as far as your place on the loyalty ladder, I know a few who might of gone , they’re giving this one a swerve

    Pretty sure points were only awarded when the tickets were picked up in Ukraine

    I don't think the points would have mattered, but it would have been a nice way to prove that you were there in years to come for those that don't keep ticket stubs.

    Thomas Cook running a trip certainly would have helped though.

    Maybe getting TC to offer a guarantee of running a trip in exchange for us guaranteeing them tickets might of been an idea. Still not sure how any of the City fans that the City Matters group represent are helped by the agreement.

    Im pretty sure the lads on 20k plus points went to the games because they love following city not collecting 40 loyalty points no offence

    If people are only going to away games to build up their loyalty points then that’s worrying in itself.That’s actually pretty strange behaviour to be honest.

    I always thought going to the match was about supporting the team and the experience of the day/night out.

    Maybe I’m doing it wrong.

    If there was a suitable trip to the game via TC then many more would go.

    I think TC have got more pressing matters to worry about judging by some of the reports on their finances. I wouldn’t book anything with them currently
