A 20% rise would mean matchday prices of £30 and renewals of £445 & £480 in the side stands.

That must be getting close to the tipping point for some

Definitely too much. The difference in new tickets vs renewed already puts off new buys.

You could probably get away with putting the renewals up to the old new price and slapping another £30 or so on new ones.

I think that would be reasonable given inflation but anymore than that and you're risking a big drop off in buys. That's just over an 8% rise.

Certainly is. Particularly with the way things are in recruitment and performance v fan expectation.

I reckon many will say fuck it and just pay for games on the day that take their fancy.

But by a couple of accounts there are some right knob youth in our old section - (towards back  in 40s).

Near roughly where I am, know a few season ticket holders that have been in those seats for decades that are leaving that area of the TE (or moving to a new stand altogether) cause of it.

'Uddersfield on the verge of going into Admin resulting in a 12 point deduction, a few buyers lined up but nothing in place yet.

Wow, what a crazy fall from grace. I thought they were being sensible with their money while in the Prem.

Admin after Thursday = 12 points next season - difficult one as they're not quite dead and buried.

It appears to be more of a writing off debts moonlight flit/pre-pack sort of admin, basically the sort where all their suppliers/creditors get screwed over but gives the new owners a debt free vehicle. Pretty similar to what Power seemed to be trying to do with the yanks before he fucked things up!

Already 6 points off safety and not really showing any signs of a revival so its an admin to basically save money, stinks TBH.

I wonder how football transfers stand? as they paid Ipswich £500k for our old loanee Simpson, I doubt that was paid all up front in the Summer.

I'm surprised Warnock went back there for the remainder of the season.

Aren't they linked to the Golden Share, which essentially makes them a Preferred Creditor - get paid in full before any other funds are distributed to the unsecured creditors.  It's why HMRC started getting much tougher earlier on to avoid being at the back of the queue.

I see Readingís cumulative losses have now reached £179m according to their latest accounts.

How do they keep going?

They'll keep going until they can't borrow more and then debt wipe via administration. We have form here so there's little in the way of morale high ground to view this from but I guess the Premier League is worth the gamble because so many clubs do it.
