I spoke to the club today and said it was a poor process and how the half-arsed announcement have unsettled thousands of fans.

The ones affected should have been consulted, or at least communicated with, before it was blabbed out to gabby.

Is that when they told you that C5 was safe ?

I'm hoping it means C4 survives as well. Otherwise, things would look a bit lopsided in the LTR

I'm sure that the TO staff are sympathetic to the problems (especially since they're the ones who have to handle the complaints).
However, those who actually decide how/when things get announced won't be bothered, because they don't have to deal with the regular holders.

....and even if we don't we still don't know if we're safe. Letters get lost.

Once the letters are all sent out, the club needs to publicise which sections are affected, so that anyone who didn't get a letter can contact the TO

Fingers crossed selfishly hoping it doesn’t affect me but offering an £80 Club Shop voucher as compensation really is a piss take from the club. I can’t even remember how many years it is since I last went in there, let alone bought anything.
I imagine £80 will be about the price of a shirt though - which is why they’ll have landed on that figure - so as way of compensation for losing a long held seat the club have seen it as an opportunity to get fans to not only boost shirt sales for Adidas but also walk around as a sandwich board advertising whichever betting company were in bed with now.
Would any business other than a football club think that way?

I know it's the "price of progress", but it seems very harsh. Having what are presumably the best season ticket seats at the moment (otherwise why would the club be taking them?) the affected people are now going to be left with what's remaining, which will surely be the worst available tickets, assuming that 99% of current season ticket holders who are unaffected will renew. And £80 compensation to spend in the club shop? I'd be amazed if that's even enough to buy a new replica home kit when they're announced.

That's a fair summary. It does seem they've been punished twice, and then offered a paltry amount as 'compensation'.

It’s not how fans should be treated.

First choice of available tickets, then the chase to move on relocation day

Discount on the renewal cost

Voucher for the shop

The above as a minimum.

A thread with a couple of bits of info on H&V Facebook https://www.facebook.com/share/p/QaVNxWiCyBwMn35X/?mibextid=K35XfP

Sounded like lower parts of upper North blocks, and having to wait until renewals are done to see where you can be relocated in the same stand.

From what I could quickly scan affected:
North Upper T5 Row  F
Doug Lower (block unnamed) Row M

I thought I saw something somewhere about an £80 club shop voucher compensation but can’t remember where that was…

Well if the North Upper T5 row F is affected, then I’m sure I will be too as I’m row F T1. I will be massively pissed off as I love my seat. No letter as yet though.

Loving the hate for Royal Mail. Just as well I no longer work there.

And, yes, I would have thought emails would have been more sensible.

Wolves have put theirs up by 17%. The reaction is angry to say the least
