So the simple question is ...Why are we the most expensive and what is the justifying logic.......

New facilities?

Is JC back on board?   :laughcry:

KES. I will always question things. Itís part of the make up.  I will also be prepared to listen to an alternative point of view and respect anyone who has one.  I have also been known known to change my view on some subjects.  Good to keep an open mind.

£25 for seating at NL level is a lot.  Then again if people pay it the SC is justified.  As an example I paid more than 25 quid for a round of 4 drinks last week.  Didnít stop me buying another round later in the evening.

People have the choice.  Donít wanna pay it ok, donít go. 

Like you itís a 2.5-3 hour round trip for me to watch at The Walks.  So I have to factor that in when deciding where I want to go and watch my football

You bought a round of drinks???????

Ticket price might be one issue, but also a lot of Lynn fans have travel in ( like thee and me).  Petrol is at £1.33 a litre.  Maybe we should ask for petrol to be at prices of a year ago as it makes it too expensive to travel to the Walks.


Carpool.

Second highest National League attendance today.

Yes, but that doesn't alter the fact that it looks as if many of the locals stayed away.

If it had been Barnet/Wealdstone/Weymouth, we could  well have seen only 1200 for the opening game of the season.

As nice as it is to see the big boys bring 1500, maintaining and increasing the home fan base has surely got to be the main priority.  :dontknow:

Donít forget to factor in Marcus we are smack bang in the middle of the holiday season plus with so many millions having been furloughed over the last 18 months then expendable money is not as free as perhaps it once was.

Sure maybe a few have baulked at the prices SC has set but I feel the answers are more wide spread than just that.

Fair enough Mallard, but why would someone think they can increase prices on what is not an essential item, when they are fully aware that people have been furloughed and money is not as free as it once was? Surely that would point to a price decrease being required rather than an increase.

If people are put off by fear of Covid, or the price, surely there's a course of action that could be taken for both problems. 

Do you think any demographic research has been performed prior to prices being fixed?

No Vitriol here  You're entitled to your spin Mallard.  Falls short of the much lauded 4000 + gate. Has the bubble
finally burst.  Please discuss. :cheers:

I really did think we would be 4000 there today. Really surprised we missed that figure by a country mile.   :dontknow:

Betting Companies sponsoring sports companies is likely to be banned soon, so I suppose there's a chance that they may think they will get out now, as there's no point trying to develop it.

Always looking for a negative response B&G. A goal is a goal whether it be a penalty or some other way.
Youíve only just noticed ??  If we signed messi theyíd  say heís to old or  donít score enough headers

If we had signed Messi i wonder if his commercial potential would have been fully exploited? I very much doubt it.
All aboard the negative bus  :bus: :sad:

Is that Auntie Doris I see in the back set  :dontknow:  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Need to keep up with the times. Global warming dictates the bus is now a boat!

I am trying to put a positive spin on today, but I'm having my worries. In the last 24 hours I have seen the club ask for turnstile men/woman, and Extra stewards needed. This is our biggest league game since York City, (with crowds). Its saying that 1500 Southend fans are coming, are we ready? I don't think so, as for the game itself, I'm going for 2-2, and 3500 att.

Has Joe Biden been hired to organise things?

Come Rod. Be a bit more positive. It's not got that bad yet!  :laughcry:

Yes - see your point, WLMÖ.

Yes, that is a valid point, but that's the way the game is played.

Potential for it to happen at any live event, not just sports. I guess if you're in it, just have to factor it into th equation.

I suppose the alternstive is just to avoid any live streaming.

Its nothing new. I remember Sky Sports being played in the bar with the previous club. Some will know how that was achieved without them having to incur expensive subscription.
