Does anyone know the churn

E.g we have 29k season ticket holders and 85% renew?

Think renewing is more attractive nowadays and can sell ticket for games you can't attend

In a flashback to General Krulak who was the poor woman in the office he always passed on every query to?

I knew I wasn't ready for a season ticket in 2021 when I went on the list with my lad, but figured it would take a while to get there. Which it has. We'd be ready now but will probably have to wait at least 2 years still. I can't be alone in that.

I know a couple of people in exactly the same position. They’re on the list but with an expectation that it will probably be a couple of years before they are eligible.

Obviously there will be some people who, when their turn comes, might not be in a position to buy one but if you think that at some point in the future you might want one then you need to be on the list.

Exactly right. And we're going places, which is why that waiting list will get longer.

What we need is bigger sponsorship deals and if are on this path to greater recognition with Emery I can't see it being a problem

Nicky Keye. The only person in the world that Chris Jameson had a good word for.

I agree.

Which is what makes the BK8 deal so anomalous. Not because it's a gambling company, so much as because it's not exactly a big company of the types who sponsor some of our peers.

Apparently, gambling companies pay double what non-gambling companies pay to sponsor clubs outside the big 6*

A friend of mine put his name down for a season ticket the summer we came up and is 60th on the waiting list now, so pretty well guaranteed to be offered a seat this year i'd imagine.

The stuff about the waiting list is interesting because I have never been in a position where buying one made financial or practical sense but I have always assumed if the time came I would be able to get one. This hasn't actually led me to doing anything proactive about it like joining the waiting list, it's more of a vague notion that the demand we've seen the last few years can't last. Now I'm thinking if Emery does establish us as a force in the game,  will I be like those glory hunters who don't go to games because they "can't get tickets". Even more alarmingly, are they telling the truth?

I'm about 4000 in the queue now. I guess no chance for next season.

I think given the issues with away tickets, we'll start to have some very, very old season ticket holders over the next few years... A problem Liverpool have.
