Amazing programme for a pre-season friendly

From the Away Day section:
The ground capacity is 5,733 with 1,200
seats in the main stand which is for
home fans.

Really? Is that something new for this season?

Fairly sure this is a miscommunication rather than a new policy. Either that or Cleeve hasn't researched hus rules correctly. I was of the idea that at this level, if fans are segregated, provision has to be made for access to seating for away fans, for the elderly et al. Or has this been more of a gentleman's agreement than an actual rule?

Announcing yourself as your main sponsor? Bit odd Mr. Cleeve.

Whilst 12/15 is a massive amount for most of and by itself, it's the context of it that's irritating to most.

It comfortably makes us the most expensive ticket in the league. You could get a Liverpool ticket for 9 last year, (admittedly, only a few)

260 for a seated season ticket, you could've got a Hull season ticket for 252 in the Premier League, Wigan in the Championship at 179. Granted, there's tv money subsidising those prices, but compared to local(ish) sides in our league or at similar level, It's the season ticket price where we stand head and shoulder's above the rest.

It smacks of Cleeve trying to milk money out of the fans, as seen by the surge in food and drink prices.

For comparison,

Stamford: 10 Match Ticket - 150 Season Ticket.
Lowestoft: 11 Match Ticket - 220 Season Ticket.
St Ives: 10 Match Ticket - 180 Season Ticket.

And disagreeing with the price, doesn't mean your any less of a fan, anymore than agreeing with it makes you more of one.

Totally doesnt rock my boat this game, 10 for what is essentially a training fixture :dontknow: will save my "hard earned" for a more worthwhile game :scarf:

Given that it's Norwich & Ipswich (even if it'll be reserves) 10 doesn't seem too bad.

It's the Gorleston game where I'll be keeping my tenner in my pocket.

And before someone mentions, it'd only have been 25 for the lot if I'd bought the multi-game ticket, but I can't make the Ipswich game so that was a non starter.

If i's anything like most pre-seasons recently, there'll be 1 or 2 more in, and probably about the same going the other way.

You do wonder if some of these signings have been made with the reserves, rather than the first team in mind. At least for the coming season. Stocking the reserves with promising youngsters sounds like a very good plan. Slightly concerning if half the first team ends up be under 21's.

Quite alot, if the powers that be don't get their arses off their chair and get a main shirt sponsor etc in!
You can't just reply on ppl coming through the gate, no club can at our level, also more off field earnings would come in handy.

And there is the worry that if the increased prices put people off coming, gate revenues will actually fall. Crowds will be up September/October time, but any fall of with a poor start will only be accentuated.

Recently played in a very similar role to the on Stevenson was preferred in over the last two seasons, Attacking Midfielder/Inside Forward. Could link up well with Mettam, or play as the most forward player in a midfield diamond.

Promising. Not bank breaking or headline grabbing, but promising.

And you do wonder, If Ryan's coming from Lowestoft, is Rossi going to follow?

Give mettam a chance in pre season to prove his fitness and we could possibly have a real find... :farmer:

Pre-season isn't the issue, last season he looked really good in pre-season last year.

He became a shadow of himself after those two mauling's early doors last year. He needs to not start getting frustrated when the teams doing badly, and he's not getting the service he wants. He went from a roving poacher to a sulker far too quickly last year. Wait and see if we get a winger/target man to help him out, or if Culverhouse decides to try and move him on after half a dozen games.

Shame an short-term deal couldn't be reached until December. I know building a stable squad is important, but we won't get in a better left-back at this level.

Wish him luck on his pro-career.

Good to have more links, but if this is today's big announcement, it's a bit underwhelming.

I may have missed it and I know someone did give it a mention but I have just rung Carrow Road and you can PARK at the ground
   :cup2: :cup2: :cup2: :cup2: :cup2:

That makes life easier. I don't suppose you know which stand is being used? Don't fancy having to do a lap of the ground to find out on Monday night.

Hereford should have the resources to romp through the league, leaving us to battle for the play-offs. Though, it's not always as straightforward as that.

Good to see we're staying put before next years (pending) league restructuring.

I said it last year, Jamie Stevens from Holbeach FC would be a great signing at the back.

But if he didn't want Spalding's travel, I doubt he'd want trips to Devon with us. Shame as he is one of the best defenders in the area.

As far as battling midfielders, be interesting to see if Culverhouse could use his links to get someone like Aransibia from Norwich's youth set up. Everyone benefited from the McWilliams loan, so be good to get a couple of talented youngsters in. Can't have a whole team of them, but 1 or 2 hungry young professionals could be a real boost.
