Jesus Christ 😂😂

Of course there are loads of people that is blatantly misusing their season ticket, but if you travel for a month or get ill - should you then apply to the club asking them not to take away your season ticket if you don't attend the necessary 16 matches ?

Of course there are no such trivial matters for the average superfan, who clock 20-25 home matches - in all competitions -per season and have done so for how many years ?

Itís not even about individuality, itís about the team. Our game was based on his controlling of the tempo. Squeeze the life out of the opposition and then strike. That is our game. Like a pack of pythons.

there's 3 months in the summer to travel, if you travel 2 weeks international break and 2 weeks after you'd miss at most 2 home games. 16 is maybe too high but 13 should be the absolute minimum unless you are unwell and literally can't attend. People shouldn't be able to share season tickets either

If youíre Iíll and provide proof to the club then maybe a partial refund or something for that season and a pause on youíre ticket. If youíre planning on going travelling for six months then why are you buying a season ticket? 13 games minimum on youíre own card. Least that can be done especially if you live local. Iíll have been at 9 this season after tonight and Iím definitely not local. Iíd love the opportunity to even get on season ticket waiting list. Maybe Iíd get one by the time I retire

Itís not about being a ďsuperfanĒ or trying to view yourself as superior. Itís about fairness. If you cannot commit to going to the vast majority of games then donít have a season ticket. There may be many reasons why you canít commit to the matches and thatís fine. It ISNT compulsory to have one. Simply stick to membership and pick and choose your games where possible.

Iíll never understand the mindset where people think itís ok to have season ticket and then pass on the majority of games to others. Why should you have the right to decide who can get a ticket. We have a loyalty scheme for that.

If your in possession of a ST and think itís acceptable to go to 5 games as per the example earlier then youíre basically a tout and you shouldnít have the ticket in my view.

exactly the membership allows flexibility to choose games, keep 4+ a year to you have a chance at the big ones, ST should be going to every game or don't have one.

if you are sick obviously provisions should be in place but travelling doesn't really make sense, there's time to do that in the summer or international breaks. Maybe there should be an option to take a 1 year holiday from your season ticket? Maybe once every decade for example, you take holiday at start of the season and the club sells the seat that season as a member seat then you get the option to take it back at the end of the season or it moved to someone on the waiting list

Agree 100%.

Obviously there can be extenuating circumstances, falling ill etc etc. But I think 16/19 is an absolute minimum if you want that privilege of the ST.

especially if you are going to get access to away games first which guarantees final tickets

You were around when Hicks & Gillett ran the show ? The people boycotting the games at that time would have lost their season tickets. Sounds fair ?

Im sorry but the games are not set in stone, and change as and when TV wants them. I work away and try my best to work in the UK when they are at home, but sometimes it doesnt work out?? Why should I be penalised to lose a ST if I have to work all the hours to pay for a ST.

then explain the situation to the club and let them decide if they ever put limits on it but to be honest mate if you can't commit to every game a membership sounds like a better option

Unbelievable!!!! If youre working out of the country most of the time then yeah I'm sorry maybe a membership would be better. Why do you think you have the right to be a ticket reseller for match tickets? No offence meant but this is exactly the problem. If you cant go to the games thats fair enough, but downgrade to a membership instead

A fella near me on the Kop worked in the Philippines for years so stopped coming. We used to get different people every match or so. His son is now at uni (he was 5 or 6 at his first game, that's how long it has been) He comes maybe once per season himself.
I don't for one minute think he's selling on at a profit, but there's no way IMO he should have a ST now. For some games nobody shows up in those seats so it's just a waste

I usually use the 'choose seat for me' option as it saves chasing orange blocks around that have usually gone by the time you get there. But today I actually chose one, because as I say, there was loads available at that time.

If that. Took 1800 to Wolves the other week when they could have had about 6k, and that's on a weekend when they haven't played the same fixture 11 days earlier

Club will struggle to sell out of hospo for this one with an extra 4-5k home support GA tickets that'll go on general sale, maybe 1600 that have shrewsbury but not cardiff but be plenty drop to members

Maybe this will be the first game to drop to 'general sale' since the WBA game in Jan 2018

That wheelchair seat in 105 has been available for every game this season. Wish they made it visible to only wheelchair supporters though because the chances of basketing it in the chaos that is the late sale is probably pretty low
