Of course not everyone on a waiting list will take the opportunity - you get on the list at a point of time. You get offered a ticket at a different point in time. Life intervenes between those points and things change.

I am not sure what sort of update on ST sales Wilma expects the club to give, to be honest.

Obviously it's his cause célèbre but it just seems a bit of a silly obsession.

True.  One thing is certain we will still sell 30k and there will still be a decent sized waiting list afterwards.

Given the reduced capacity for the redev I'd expect very high renewal rates next season too and a growing waiting list.  The acid test will be after the redev when scarcity is much less of an issue and it's a lot easier to pick and choose games.  But I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with 35k ST holders after the redev, which is pretty decent.  If we can get to 40k that would be excellent.

Do we think we will offer more capacity  for away fans with the expansion ?

We don't have to offer more than 3k and hopefully the club will stick with that.

Is Ashley Young wearing our new kit in the photo of him signing his contract?

Yeah, we're playing in cap sleeved t-shirts this season and every player will have a complimentary mullet in time for the big kick off.

I don't buy the kits, ever (on account of me being a grown man in my 50s) (who wouldn't fit in an XXXL anyway) but I will be really, really glad when they do come out because it will mean the annual, boring "design a Villa kit" season coming crashing to an end.

Who was that bloke who never used to post on here other than to post mock ups about this time of year?

And I know it does no harm. It just annoys me.

I'm also a middle aged non shirt buyer but my reason for wanting them to come out sooner rather than later is that it will be an indication we're getting better at the marketing/screwing-the-fans-for-money side of things.

In recent years the club have updated on season ticket sales etc. Perhaps they just feel they don't need to anymore but it has gone VERY quiet , has anybody who is on the 'waiting list' not been contacted yet? I know of two people who have been offered the opportunity to buy seats and they only joined last season?

I'm very suspicious about the waiting list and when I hear people being offered them when only joining last year my suspicion seems valid.

When exactly did they join Flin?  I think this will be interesting info to a number of posters here on the list.  My brother joined last year and hasn't been offered a ticket yet.

Can I ask, why do you feel it's important? I'd say that the fact they're spending £100m to increase capacity and also putting prices up suggests they have evidence demand is there.

The size of the list doesn't really effect the average fan aside from mild curiosity or bragging rights.

He thinks the waiting list scenario is being enhanced in order to facilitate the driving up of prices, e.g. people will by a season ticket at inflated prices because they feel if they dont, it might be years till they get one again….because of the waiting list.

I'm assuming he didn't renew then and we can all look forward to his laughing at us next season when he saunters up and gets one soon as look at them?  :)
