    There's a simple formula to work it out: (The number of kg that Timmy Fishfuckface has lost in the last 12 months + the number of public Joyless Septicalla appearances) multiply that by the number of derisory Gory Hefferman bids. Add the number of months we have left on the Ricoh rent contract and then divide that total by the number of teeth the mad hatters have left.

    If we make the assumption that Timmy skipped breakfast today then the answer = 47.

    I'm afraid it's already plagiarism. I lifted it from last years 2016 Fringe performance 'An evening with (fake) Bob Latchford & marcusp'

    After 3 weeks of sales last season 2300 had been sold. We're 5 days from that marker now. 20-30% of that?

    Somebody from the trust gloating about season ticket sales? I must be seeing things ;)

    I bought mine the first day last year, I haven't yet because there are 2 paydays before I need to.

    How many times do you have to be told. There's definitely no boycott and certainly nobody from the Trust or JHW encouraging people not to buy season tickets :emoji_rolling_eyes:

    Footage of the trust's reaction to it only being 500 so far.

    Please indicate or show links to where the Trust has encouraged a boycott of season tickets or is this just made up shit?

    I didn't say they had.

    I have said gloating and appearing happy about it. The same as all of the "away day only" talk on the stage when the Pompey people were there.

    Along with many "we dont need to push a boycott, fans will do it themselves" followed by a:

    Then the "raise your hand if you are getting a ST".

    That gets a :

    They'll be a statement about lack of signings from them next.

    tbf, CJ was hardly gloating about it, he answered the op's question by just stating a fact. I thought we liked facts on here?

    I'm very critical of the trust but there's no gloating in CJ's reply to the OP - it's just a fact with his unemotive guess at ST sales. Which in fact was very accurate - 500 sold is 22%.

    It wasn't just that comment, it has been in general.

    Trust stance on Season Ticket sales is simply that its up to the individual whether they buy one or not, whether they buy tickets for individual games or not, whether they buy merchandise or not.

    Depends how you look at it. Last year early bird was shorter. Now we have 2 pay days to save/consider etc and I know people who will buy but aren't ina rush yet
    Having read the story, with 5 weeks to go now it's 500. Last year, with 3 weeks to go it was 600. So it's difficult to read it as a positive or negative whichever your view point is

    No, Telegraph!

    I've given other examples of that and what seems to be a bit of smugness that we won't sell as many ST's.

    OK, I just thought it was unfair to label CJ as gloating.

    That's the thing, there's really no rush this year to get get one. I have had April's payday and will have May's to get one, if I have spare cash by then I'll just buy one but if not I'll sign up for monthly.

    Couldn't see any gloating from CJ, even with your winky-smilie, Nick, it feels like point scoring a bit?

    Apologies if it really isn't. It can just come across that way sometimes! It was the same with filming people going into checkatrade games to prove how empty it was.

    I'l be surprised if we sell more than 3,000 to be honest. That's of course if SISU are still here.

    My estimate may even be optimistic.

    Sadly, I think your estimate is optimistic, I believe around 2k, hope I'm wrong.

    I reckon 2700 - 3000 with matchdays of 5500 - 6000 on average unless we are competing when I reckon about 8 - 9.

    Season ticket money ready and burning a whole in my bank account for the day the club gets new owners!
    Probably wouldn't go to more than half a dozen home games though because of other commitments, but would be prepared to back new owners.

    Haven't the U13's got to be JSB's and accompanied by a paying Adult?
    Thats how I read it anyhow.
