Was always an entertaining day when Eze was playing; not always in a good way though.

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

I think itís because it was decided we needed a bigger budget to compete in this league, and so prices went up to increase the budget. Basing decisions on what SC wants the club to be,  rather than what it can afford.

It is worth remembering the pricing structure last year was never really put to the test.

Currently 3 of Saturday's fixtures off with Bromley v Grimsby the latest due to Covid in the Grimsby camp.

Maybe someone can help me here;


If you have been double jabbed you don't need to self isolate if you come into contact with a positive case. If the players were all double jabbed, would this mean there would only be call offs if half a squad went down with it ? If so, why isn't this a priority ?

The double jabbed rate of under 30ís is still comparatively low, would be why these are happening.

I just personally think SC has got his marketing all wrong. I would of considered a season ticket had it of been a couple of hundred pound or so. I pay for a Norwich season ticket too but that is premier league football so I expect the £440 a year which I pay. I personally wonít be attending many matches due to the inflated cost of everything fan related at KL Town.

Find myself thinking similar. I started following Lynn about 8 years ago when I moved to the area, as it was significantly cheaper than following my boyhood club, and meant I could walk to the ground rather than drive/train. Then I fell in love with the club, and had a season ticket for 5/6 years. Iíve stomached some of the price rises under Cleeve, and kept buying my exponentially increasing season ticket. I didnít get one last year, and at £600 for me and my 5 year old to get a seat for this season, Iíve decided against getting one this year. Will probably go to some of the Saturday games, but supporting a business (itís not a club anymore) run by someone as unsavoury and untrustworthy as Cleeve is something Iím finding difficult to reconcile.

Yes, agreed we could do with some Lynn fan ticket info....only seen the initial twitter post of over 1500 tickets sold incl. 800 for away terrace.

Based on the current numbers, does that mean there is a fair chance Southend will have more fans in than Lynn?

A regional league 2 would certainly make sense, having 5 national leagues has always seemed at least one too many for the size of clubs at these levels. This would go to 3, which should cut down on travel costs for most (though as we all know for Lynn it doesnít make much a difference).

Johnson and his entourage need to either step down or be removed.... completely out of their depth and no sense of "the greater good".

In this country, the alternative to Johnson and his crew is truly terrifying!

Doesnít need to be the other side change comes from, thereís growing back bench dissent to Johnson, and theyíre the ones who did for May. If this unlocking goes derriŤre over elbow, you could see Johnson being replaced by his own party with someone dull but fairly competent seeming to try and win back trust over a winter of restrictions, like Raab, Sunak, Clark or Leadsom. A swing back towards the centre in preparation for the next election, now that there isnít a Brexit party flanking them to the right.

And in reminding myself this is a football forum, has their been attendance figures given out for the two friendlies?

I would respectfully suggest our current predicament is not so much to do with lack of vaccine take up...which on the whole has been very high and brilliantly rolled out by the NHS...........it is more to do with putting business before health, refusing to lockdown borders before too late, funding an inadequate test and trace system (given to cronies and Tory financial supporters rather than pre existing experts in the field) and childish rhetoric from the PM giving false hope to those gullible enough to believe him. Decisions based on the science/data...my ar*e....1200 scientists from around the world currently saying Monday is reckless and unethical.

The sad irony, is that the best way to look after the economy in a pandemic, is to put health and people first !

 :clap: Spot on.

You can see it with schools. A big song and dance is being made about the number isolating as contacts, but thatís overshadowing the main story that there are more young people infected than in January, and that the age profile of those being hospitalised is decreasing this time around.

I see Bromley have had to do a U turn with regard to pricing after the fans kicked up a stink about it.

They were asking for £25 seating and £20 for standing.  Season tickets at £290 and £220.

The Club are re-evaluating the pricing structure in light of the fans reaction.

Itís noticeable that out match day tickets were pretty similar to this, but our season tickets are £100+ more than what they were kicking off about.

Spot on.    If we can pull in 2,500 people average then the price I assume will be X.  Whilst if the ground is deemed to only have say 1250 then the price would need to be Y.

Thatís only true if price doesnít suppress demand to too great an extent. And in our games with the crowd back, we didnít reach our reduced capacity.

I think demand for people to watch non-league football might have fallen more than some anticipate.

Hope he does.

I remember many an afternoon of Setch shouting ďSam!Ē

There never seemed to be any tactical input being imparted, it just seemed Setch liked shouting his name.

Have prices for season tickets, and tickets in general, been released for next season?  Saw the press release today that the £35 membership is being continued into 2021-22 offering priority ticketing which may have a bit more relevance with (potentially) limited crowds for at least some of the coming season.

Is that possible under league rules?

I thought visiting fans have to have the opportunity to buy tickets at the same price and conditions as home fans. Is that correct?

Away supporters are hardly likely to buy Membership for another Club.

 Just asking. :dontknow:

Itís possible, so long as their is a proportion (at least 10%) set aside for away fans, as is the case with segregated games.

I think.

Hence the case being heard in Crown Court rather than Magistrates. Just for perspective in a Magistrates Court sentencing appears to be of the order of up to £5000 fine and /or a max of 6 months ... and of course he may yet be found not guilty/acquitted

He may, but given that he had stuff in his car, in his house and the magistrates have already passed it up to the Crown Court suggests the case likely has merit.

That Lynn have felt they need to get ahead of the story, given how slow they are normally to react to anything, suggests that something not good has gone on.

Sorry, but we can't blame volunteers for a number of grown men who don't accept their own responsibilities. Why do those "grown men" need to be told by anyone to adhere to Covid regulations? It was quite obvious, that event would be monitored, and a reduced capacity is the outcome. Not the volunteers fault I'm afraid. I managed to stay far enough apart and still see what was going on.

Exactly. Seen a number of quotes today to the affect of ĎI knew I was breaking the rules, but it was wrong for the stewards to tell me I was breaking the rules. They should have stopped from being in a place to break the rules in the first place.í

The fans were in the wrong, the reduction has happened. The club and fans really need to make sure the same doesnít happen on Saturday, or we might find ourselves playing the first game of the new season behind closed doors as a punishment, rather than due to COVID.
