I mean, that is a bit funny. It's got to be for the little stamp/kick at the end right, not the push?

If ours are remotely close to that I won’t be bothering. Imagine paying £500+ for a league 2 season ticket. Fuck that.

Good point someone makes......It will price a lot of people out of the game.

Walsall and Orient's price increases are around 20% in places i believe. Bradford sticking to their guns and pricing at £200 ish. They've sold 4,000 so far.

I reckon ours will be up but not by as much as 20%

But where does it stop... https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/newcastle-manchester-united-ffp-neville-26388651

Increasingly beginning to wonder whether it would be best if the top 6 just did fuck off elsewhere as they seem to be skewing the whole system*, I see Rotherham's figures have been released which show how they have had to spunk cash about to try and get to and stay in the Championship, lost £5.3m over last decade - but struggled to stay in Championship (three relegations)...

* It will, however, be funny as fuck, watching various NUFC supporters doing moral gymnastics after moaning like hell the other year about how corrupt football was, about how bad the big 6 were, what an unfair cartel the PL and ESL was going to be etc when it looked like they wouldn't get an invite to the party yet likley now lap it up!

If Rotherham have only lost 5.3m, that is actually not that bad.  We've lost more than that and all we have managed to achieve is becoming a mid table League 2 team.

How much when you take off how much Power fleeced us on though? Can't imagine its near that.

The accumulated losses since Black sold us are over 10m from memory.  Sure, Power may have taken some cash and maybe hit the P&L through expense charges, but think he took most of the money through loan repayments - he paid himself when others invested the finance (if that is what you are inferring).  So the club still lost money hand over fist.

But how many people are there out there who can spunk £5+m up the wall just to get to (but not necessarily stay) in the second tier, its getting to the stage that even the Championship is unattainable for probably 50+% of clubs.

Just double checked out prices from last year.

£370 renewal DRS and Arkells (400 new)
£350 Town End (380 new)

If they are going to try to fleece us out of 20%, make the Town End cheaper and less of a rise. Some mates are considering moving back, but £20 is no saving at all.

I get the TE isn't all about the money/view. But by a couple of accounts there are some right knob youth in our old section - (towards back  in 40s).

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
