Gris, why donít you just buy a season ticket? Cleeve has posted on Facebook saying a much increased uptake and he says it works out at only 80p per game more than last season.  Surely even you canít moan at this; can you?

Last season because of work I only made four home games and the play offs,made more away games than home games,working on this premise it would equate to £72.50 a game,an increase of £59.50 a game? :bankrupt:


Why is admission price such a concern for you if you struggle to attend games?


Regardless of how many games I attend I am still allowed an opinion on the entry price? :dontknow: :banghead; :banghead;

Donít we know it! Shame nearly every thread is taken up by your views on admission increases.

The majority seem to have accepted its £15 and understand why. You donít, thatís fine. Canít we all just move on?



I think you should check back on this thread and see who raised the subject of the price increase,the thread was quite a positive one until someone decided to mention admission prices yet again!!! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

At no point did I say you couldnít!?!? Merely asked why itís such a focus issue for you?


From a personal point of view I felt there was no need for another price increase, especially as it was going to rise whether we got promoted or not? :bankrupt:

But would you pay to attend a fundraising event ? Same result , just different way of contributing



Yes,but that is a different way of contributing, that way you have the choice of how much you spend at such events,if the entry price keeps going up then you will get to the stage where more people say no. Maybe someone can just about afford to go to the home games but not much more, and occasionally could afford to attend a bingo night or a quiz,that is a far fairer way than pricing him out of attending games? :dontknow: :bankrupt:

In every League there will be teams that are more physical than others - Leeds Utd of old, Wimbledon of old were two of those who were known as "Dirty". Some of those clubs who we saw at The Walks last season could throw their weight about - some were downright thugs.

Being a teenager in the 70's, I still hate Leeds!!!!!
Me too, although they could play as well as bully.

I think the only people who didn't hate Leeds were their own supporters. :sad:

I agree with Blue Moon and Sworn 2 Secrets.  Personally I wouldnít object to an additional £2 or £3 on the ticket price to help with the ground improvements.  As Sworn says, Trustís funds cannot be spent on anything other than a share of the ownership of the club.  Raising separate designated funds for ground improvements as the Trust are doing is the best way to help the club.


Well perhaps all of those people who are happy to pay even more could just pay into the trust ground improvement fund? :scarf: :scarf:

I would suspect most fund raising events would be patronised mainly by current supporters of the club so why not cut out the middle man again and stick another quid on admission prices


If I have an extra two pints in the Napier before kick off I will save another pound maybe I could donate that? :cheers: :cheers: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Building not really my area. I may donate a bit more to the fund if that helps. I can't see why the trust wouldn't put some of their contingency fund to good use the raise funds subsequently to replace what was used.

Alternatively why doesn't the club spend the latest windfall on the improvements and fund raise to replace that,cut out the middle man? :dontknow:

All good and very positive, is there any way fans could contribute labour wise to maybe save a little of the cost? :dontknow: :scarf: :scarf:

Taking money at a bar is completely different to making money at a bar, just ask the ex landlords of the 18 pubs that are closing each week in the uk. I totally agree that a good bar adds to match day atmosphere but selling a hundred or so pints of beer on a Saturday afternoon will generate very little if any profit by time staff costs etc are taken into consideration. I just don't understand the infatuation by some people on here about beer. There's more PROFIT to be made in tea,coffee and food.  :cheers:

If you have a successful bar on a match day it can be busy from start to finish, all of the away grounds I visited last season all he busy bars, all with bar staff run off their feet? I think you will find that even with the very limited choice at our bar and the dragon surroundings and atmosphere more than 100 pints are sold? Why do you think the Lord Napier bends over backwards for Lynn fans on a Saturday afternoon? Do you think they make no profit, how much better would it be if that profit went to the club instead of the Napier?  :dontknow:
I've been to a few away games and I haven't seen that many bars that are run of their feet. Rushden seemed busy but it was a pokey little bar. A busy bar with atmosphere is nice and might pull a bit of money in but not critical to a club's finances. The best way for a club to make money is to charge a fair price for tickets and get decent attendances. The new ticket prices are clearly seen as fair by about 99% of the fans who use this forum. It remains to be seen what the attendances will be next season but ticket price increases haven't had a negative impact on attendances thus far so no reason to think there will be any drop off next season.


Don't need a decent bar now Stan, gate receipts and a pocket full of wonga in Mr Cleeve's pocket, instant success, Kerching.  :cup2:
The money goes into the pockets of the players not the chairman and I don't begrudge them a penny of it. The club isn't a cash cow that Cleeve will milk dry! He's already put in shed loads of his own money. Yes, I am sure that in the long term he will hope for some sort of return but I am convinced that his main motive for taking on project KLTFC is the buzz of making great things happen.



I didn't actually mean straight into his pocket so he could have a couple of weeks all paid in the Maldives or something, it will all be thrown intothe pot so to speak!! We don't know what we got but even if we got 30 or so grand just how far would that stretch if no tangible income was there to back it up? It is all great to think we have x amount of money but it won't last so fundraising has to be an issue,not that anyone cares!! :bankrupt:

Mr Cleeve will probably appreciate someone recommending fans drink elsewhere?  :cheers:
