    I haven't re-read all of citizens posts but he certainly seems to look down on us with contempt, in fact the club as a whole. Perhaps it is David Conn in disguise.

    Nobody should but we always seem to have one eye on the press

    I was there last night, I organised an office visit in Stockport to make it easier.. I detest night games and I only travel in from Chester. Last night was dull as dish water.. no atmosphere apart from a few moments e.g. the appreciation shown for Zabba...

    I'd scrap night games totally.. they are a fuck about for all concerned

    What's impressive about this thread is to see the sheer effort that some blues are making to be in that stadium. We are extraordinarily loyal fans. It doesn't matter a toss if we're the biggest thing since sliced bread in Thailand.

    I like to think that if I lived in Manchester (as I did, many moons ago) I'd get to every single home game without fail, and even go along to watch the women and the EDS play from time to time. But I bet I wouldn't.

    Either way, I just don’t get the hatred of fans towards fellow fans for not going to a game.

    Maybe they get ribbed by a few rag/Scouse mates and can’t handle it?

    Only a casual attender these days after my 23 years as a season ticket holder ended in 2004. My seat was empty last night for the last 10 minutes thanks to the over aggressive security and a case of mistaken identity. A non smoker with no cigarettes, seen smoking, mañ handled by 6 security muppets despite the steward telling them I'd done nothing wrong. All this in front of his 12 year old daughter.
    Match day experience, stick it where the sun don't shine! I'm not going back, I'm done.

    I've commented on this sort of thing before and was called out by saying that our season tickets are cheap enough for fans to pick and choose games.

    We can all see it happening ok last night was perhaps a bit different. But the only way to fill an expansion at the moment would be to make it none season card and flog them at a cheap price on a game to game basis.

    the only place it’s really cheap in the ground season ticket wise is south stand level 3. Everywhere else isn’t cheap and has gone up in price every year for about ten years now. Unless you think 700 quid is cheap?

    there’s also the match day tickets which are extortionate in price. If they were affordable we’d sell lots more
     
  8. I hope you have made a complaint to the club........showsec stewards are bullies and a disgrace

  9. yes and if you want a single match day ticket it's something like £60 plus

    who the fuck pays that?

    Your first paragraph is similar to all the grief I was getting the last time I brought this point up.

    There's no definitive answer and although in SS3 myself for financial reasons, what's deemed cheap is different for everyone.

    The point still stands that as not all games are attractive some fans won't bother for various reasons.
