You know 25 fans who can fork that kinda money out? 

I dont. I barely know 25 fans. But they got plenty of patrons to fork out more. Even in a cost of living crisis, there's plenty folk with plenty money, as there ever was

 

There will be folk looking to take that up.

I would imagine that there has been a bit of research done on this before the launch.

Patrons, sponsors and known wealthy fans may well have been sounded out already.

Quite a good initiative in my view.

Is this some of 10 year season ticket a joke? cost off living crisis, folk struggling to heat houses etc and can get to games when they can, but can get 1 free parking space a season, that may have worked at Stenhousemuir, thought this Jaimie guy was some sort of marketing genius, can't wait to run out to Pendle strips next season
 

Wow, that's some chip on your shoulder.

I don’t really get the criticism to be honest. Understand there is a cost of living crisis but the club still needs to earn money.

The patrons all bought £10k worth of shares  to join. This is aimed at similar people who can afford to help out the club whilst giving something back in return.

20 odd fans stuck in £10k to help out the club in return for a piece of paper.
Asking 25 fans to pay £5k up front for a 10 year season ticket with a load of “add ons” that actually mean they will be quids over time in is perfectly sensible to me.

25 fans did fork out at least double that recently for a worthless share certificate in order to help the club, I reckon a decent few of these 10 year season tickets will be sold if not all. It’s good way the let fans who can afford to help the club while still getting something tangible for they’re investment if they want to.

Where in that statement did it mention "patrons" only ones it available to?

It didn’t. It’s available to the first 25 fans that want it. Your point is?

No need for Rudeness tbh, I don't think it's a good idea

Why is it not a good idea?

If even 10 people buy one then that’s an extra £50k in the coffers so surely that makes it worth doing?

Holy shit this is tough going. Folk losing their shit over us getting a very winnable cup draw followed by them losing their shit over the club launching an initiative to try and fill a well document £400k hole in the finances. 

We have a disproportionate number of whingers in our fan base, honestly man. We could sign Messi and people would moan that we hadn’t done it 5 years ago.
