Absolutely, I donít recall any public interviews from Anderson during his time at the club, even with BBC

I'm fairly sure there were some doubts at some point as to whether Steve Anderson was real!

Just posted in the other thread, what input have the trust and osc had here because they have not been listened to until it kicks off online again.

To be honest itís not really improving my opinion of the current Trust set up. They sent out a press release basically commending the club on the season ticket prices when there were absolute clangers in the club pricing that have since seen an about turn, one of the Trust board members was even denying the disabled pricing issue. Just reinforces my view that the Trust will just go along with whatever the club does.

I wonít really criticise the OSC as they arenít meant to be political.

I get that but the Trustís remit is literally to hold the club to account and protect fans interests. They currently pretty much fulfilling the same role as the OSC.

if the osc are giving feedback on ST prices they are holding the club to account on this particular issue too

If the Trust/OSC weren't given the information about the disabled ticket prices, it's pretty hard to comment?

Me and 3 U18 tickets is £60 per game on the day or £15 each £1380 for the season
Season ticket price is £730, £31 per game £7.90 each.
Can't grumble at that, but if they did family 2 then the deal is even better. Are they doing it? Have heard they are but 2 adults 1 child 🤷

I'm guessing that the lack of family option combos might be mitigated, for those with younger kids, by the return of the Junior Reds season ticket?

Not done the comparison maths but looks a decent option for say one adult ST holder plus 2 to 4 JR's in tow?

Not really. Family packs cover U18's, Jr Reds is U11 (or 12).

What happened was that the previous regime at some point made family value a priority.

But I think this backed the club into a corner in that if you want to increase average price per ticket its very tricky to increase the family pack by a massive amount from the previous year.

So the club simply dropped them, without club comment (or from the Trust or OSC) outside the "look we are only increasing 5%" type comments.

People affected had to buy some tickets outside the dropped family pack.

I'm glad they brought it back, Family 2 is £830 on reinstated price, last year it was £740 (renewal/early bird) - 12% increase but also a saving over the previous situation (£85 over individual, £20 over family pack 1 and adult in side stand) .

Looks like doing the same to disabled supporters was the line not to be crossed.

As you can tell from this post I'm still pissed off when it happened to me, which was the season straight after I went to 2 games the season before due to the COVID situation.

I can see why it needs done. But its the complete lack of communication and explanation that annoyed me, especially after not asking for a refund - a mistake I won't repeat if god forbid we ever get denied football again.

Yeah, wonder how many would reconsider not asking for a refund if faced with the same choice in the future.

Also with the benefit of hindsight, how many would now go down the refund route if they had the time over.

It's a given with any other business transaction other than football it would seem.
