It’s not always as black and white about being able to afford it or not. I had a season ticket for like 10 years or something, but didn’t get a season ticket for 17/18 season as didn’t think I would be able to attend as much games, so didn’t really see the point. Turns out that changed and I went to most games, but since then I’ve paid at the gate for home games, sat in the same seat I did before and picked up tickets for all ticket matches such as East Fife away with ease. Didn’t really find myself too much out of pocket vs having a season ticket either.
Ideally I’d like to support the manager by getting a season ticket, but the club will still get pretty much £250 in gate money from me over the course of the season, and gate money can help fund signings etc later in the season, so I’m not overly bothered. The finance option would be (and was in the past) quite convenient for myself and would mean that in unlikely event of a big all ticket game with tickets at a premium I could get, but if its not available that’s cool. I personally don’t feel the need to rush out and spend £250 cash at a time of year where it could go on heaps of other things.
Exactly. It's the time of year where I can take my daughter places and give her good experiences rather than spending my disposable income on myself.

Exactly where I'm at.

No significant incentive for me to shell out £300 on a season ticket for me and the wee man. With a summer holiday coming up I'm much more in need of that cash in my own bank at the minute.

I'll probably spend as much if not more in pay at the gate sales over the course of the season but I'm happy to take the risk.

If the club want my cash up front then I would look at a finance option but makes no real difference to me...

Met our potential new defender today. 
Very nice lad and an absolute unit. New cult hero in the making, especially if he goes through players á la Marv/Sparky. 

Did you think to ask his name?

Wouldn’t want to give his identity away but what I will say is he'll struggle to get a hair cut like that at Man & Boy...

News coming out of starks in the last week that the club have offered the stadium out to investor. Plan to sell and rent back to raise some capital


SPP own most of the club and own the stadium so not sure how that would work.

High time that the ground and the club were one and the same. The ground should not be for sale. End of.
