Good of you to answer on behalf of your mate.

Yes, very much so.

We've all got Friends Paul.

No. Problem Paul, Happy to help.   Least it clears it up.

Thanks again

Shouldnít that be friends, rather than Friends?

1400 ?   I donít think that was the figure for the test game.  I seem to recall that had a ceiling of 800.  If they canít sell 800 at the top dollar being asked then Messrs Hearle and Cleeve have got it wrong.

It seems the prices have caused a certain amount of bad feeling from some supporters, but the club needs to survive and the clubs customers need to play their part.
Mallard are you a comedian in your spare time. THE CLUBS CUSTOMERS NEED TO PLAY THEIR PART.
So might you suggest that Marks and Spencers put up their prices for a £5 childs t-shirt to £20 and the customers will flock to support it.
Absolute BULL!
The club needs to be doing their part NOT alienating their loyal fans who turn out year in and year out ! Expecting a family of 4 to pay
£100 to sit and watch the game is going to do far more harm than good. Even at that you were not guaranteed a ticket, but shelling out another £140 for membership would.
One of my very first words to SC on the way to visit the Joma tradeshow at Harlow at the start of his reign was that " You think you have bought Chelsea but we are not even the non league version of Chelsea".
At this rate it will be cheaper to go to Chelsea!

Well SC and MH are of the opinion the clubs paying customers will be prepared to pay a premium price to be one of the  people who can be there to watch top class non League football.

Itís their club, their decision.   They will either have got it right or you will be proven right and the prices will come down.

Letís see who is right.   Donít forget any income shortfall has to be made right out of SCís pocket.   At in excess of 100k per month itís not a decision to be taken lightly.

Well I am sorry....but you wouldnt expect your local pub to charge £10.00 a pint when they re-open just because they have been shut because of lockdown. :dontknow:

I think that would depend on who the Landlord is.  :dontknow:

I donít see the club is charging double the normal price.   They have just loaded it slightly to reflect the fact that no everyone who wants to be there, can be there.

I take it tomorrow has sold out by now.   

As for the Landlord prices I guess it depends if itís multi packs from Tescoís

Did anyone buy into it?
I doubt it.
Quite a few fans are not ready to return yet.
Understandable.

More like it would depend on who the Barmaid/Barman (Bar Person  :laughcry:) is
