"f*** it....I won't be the owner next season anyway so I'll give them another massive increase in their ticket prices as a litte parting gift....the Geordie caahnts"

The other way of looking at it is why would he hike the prices up so much in the midst of a takeover if he's not going to be here to reap the benefits of it?

You would expect him to leave things they are.

Like I say...as a final "f*** you".

That's if he knows for certain the club is sold, of course.

What are our prices compared to the rest of the mid-table clubs?

Our average (1 year standard) season ticket price is the 6th highest in the league. Only Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Man Utd and Liverpool are more expensive.

Another Ashley myth is that he's made football more affordable as well.

If we were looking to break into the top 6 and use that money to attract those players you’d accept it.

Personally I wouldn't pay it no. We're not in a particularly wealthy area of the country here and the ticket prices are becoming unaffordable regardless of the clubs ambition.

Maybe, but even then £600+ for a season ticket is not representative of working class people in the North East of England. I thought last season's increase was a bit much tbh, but I was paying for a junior's then.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Nee idea, but haven't Norwich today capped individual tickets for home games at £30?
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I’d personally pay £660 a year for a club with ambition, I wouldn’t pay £500 to watch Mike Ashley’s Newcastle.

Genuinely, how do people afford that? That's just unbelievable.

Funny how the game in England is obsessed with all this diversity/quota bollocks yet the very people that keep the game alive are not included when it comes to accessibility to watch. It's absolutely scandalous, but of course nothing will happen.

If the takeover doesn't happen that in itself should be the cue to jack in the ST's, but with this now in the mix how can anyone justify/afford this? Imagine if you're a dad/son(s) trying to go! Not a f***ing hope.

It’s an extra £3-4 a week. I could make a weekly sacrifice of that amount if it meant loving going to the game again. I’m sure people could cut out that extra couple of pints pre or post match if it meant the enjoyment at the game again?

Sorry but anyone renewing at the minute wants their heads checked.  It's f***ing mental, yet I assume there will be thousands.  Just this alone should be enough to put people off after the 20%(?) increase last season before you even consider the whole Rafa/no signings carry on.

Further proof (if needed) that he can literally do what he wants without any backlash.

Read comments elsewhere like "not bothered I'm on ten year fixed price" . What are they expecting when that ends and the jump in price will hit hard.
I thought with TV money and commercial ( not so much us ) being the source of the vast majority of Premier League clubs revenue that matchday income wasn't that significant? So why the price hike? Is it to cover our deficiencies commercially.

You just know when your sat there amidst the barrage of SD signage watching damage limitation football being played out by a, largely Championship, side in a crowd so benign you wonder if the pre-Ashley era crowds were all just a figment of your imagination, that your witnessing Sports Direct Soccer. A bit like real Football, but with 60% off

It’s a day out though isn’t it, few pints, couple bets, £5 bottle of coors at half time, couple pints after the match then home for match of the day.

Deadline is July 4th, I can at least see what the situation with Rafa is before I decide to renew. Not that it’s much of a problem for me, I’d be paying by DD, so I could cancel anytime in anyway.

Does a deadline even mean anything? Or is it an issue for those on the price freezes?

Yeah, means once it’s past they can sell your seat on. They usually extend the deadline though, and then even reserve it for a little while after that if you still haven’t renewed.

I'm sure alot of us know of lads like this. I do, and I've said to them for years just f***ing pretend you have the season ticket then go to town and stay in the pubs all day. Much better experience. Also click on the season ticket money. Everyone's a winner.
