I donít remember demand for tickets exceeding supply, ever really being an issue in my supporting lifetime. This is a new one really, so havenít given it a great deal of thought. But I do think itís a good idea to limit the number of season tickets, or else people who canít afford one are going to be excluded from going.

As I remember, weíd have crowds around 33-36k And then, thereíd
be the ones where we couldíve sold 80k.

Couple of seasons like this and the case for adding extra capacity becomes quite strong. Itís a big risk though as everybody knows that thereís no crystal ball and no guarantees of staying in the prem, or the football / results retaining the extra crowds.

Iíd like to see the north stand redeveloped, but wouldnít be surprised, or too upset if it isnít, which I think is more likely, unless we do solidly break into top 6 territory.

Just spoken to Paul from the ticket office. You will not be able to relocate online.

Just been looking at a programme from 1986. Attendances of circa 16000 average and £1.50 ticket (kids) £3.00 adults. How times have changed.

With the club membership , can you purchase another couple of tickets with it if you donít mind not assigning to other fan idís  and having them against just mine ?

You can't jump the queue, no. You'll only be able to get extra tickets all on one reference once it goes to general sale. One qualifying reference = one ticket, member or season ticket holder or not.

This is amazing. These conversations we are having on here were unthinkable In February, yet here we are.

I was on holiday last week. Me and the Mrs were on a train from Valencia, down the coast. We'd both spent the last ten minutes looking out the window, not saying anything.

After a while, in a splurge-of-consciousness moment, i turned to her and said, "Ten wins in a row, do you have any idea what an achievement that is?"

She looked at me like I'd just pissed in her shoes.

I don't think it works that way at all. There are only 8k seats for general sale and they aren't limiting the number of people who can join the scheme. It won't guarantee anyone a ticket but it means you are eligible to join the queue for one. My son for example can't guarantee he can make games due to his work but im buying him a 35 quid membership so at least he he's in with  a chance when he can. If i was loaded i'd just buy him a season ticket to guarantee his seat when he can make it. But i'm not so this is a compromise im happy to try out. The club aren't going to run such a scheme for free, after all they are a business.

Iím the same. I canít get to the ground enough to justify a season ticket but I want to take my children to half a dozen games. They actually get four free tickets plus a joining gift plus birthday and Christmas cards so itís quite a good deal.

I still think we needed a bigger ground...

The memberships are a good idea. If we exceed our capacity for now with them, so be it. Seeing the ground close to full for every game, not just the "big" ones, will be superb.

You're not wrong!

Claret membership worked perfectly for me last season. I travel up from London for games, and this meant that I could pretty much guarantee being able to sit next to mates who are season ticket holders. Ended up doing 16 games, so it's certainly not just for people who want to handpick one or two games a season.

Whilst I appreciate ur thoughts I know I ve purchased 3 before on my1 membership in 15/16 but all on my id. Thatís fine by us but I need 100% clarification so know how it works now. Canít even workout from terms and conditions.... point 18 does mention tickets in plural but not sure of context . Tried for your to get through to ticket office but keeps ringing me off as I donít have a current membership to renew Iím clearly down their priority listings.... very frustrating when Iím trying to make an informed decision
