They're still season ticket holders, they'll just be sat elsewhere.

But there are people who have sat in the same seat for years, by the same people who are now getting moved because someone will pay considerably more than them. I get why they're a tad miffed

Isnít this just commercial sense? Supply and demand? The club offer the seats and choose the price and as customers you decide whether to pay those prices or not. The ST does give you rights beyond the season in question.

It will be interesting to see how many current season ticket holders who are having to move seats decide not to renew?

I'm sure many will. I've always said that as every year passes I move closer to the door marked "Exit" as the game moves away from what it once was, I can't change that and it won't change my love for The Villa and as some have said, this is the price of success.

Inevitably, as time moves on, the crowd at top flight football will change and it will be the preserve of those with the most money, large scale concerts are already like this and eventually people will say "no more". I have with arguably my favourite singer and songwriter, sorry Bruce, too much. He's touring over here now but I have no regrets and no FOMO and I imagine I will feel the same when I give up attending Villa Park regularly. When your worth can only be measured in economic terms then it's of no worth at all.

Oh don't get me wrong, I totally understand why they're doing it, I'm just saying I understand if some.people would rather not move from where they've sat for years.

I've similar thoughts over the past couple of seasons and keep thinking 'is this my last season' after more than 40 years, and nothing to do with how good or bad we might be on the pitch. I'm sat not far behind the dugouts and still don't know if I'll have to give up my seat.

I have the same discussion every summer with my Wife - do I renew for the 37th season or not, my wife's reply is "what else are you going to do"

When the seats were removed last summer at the back of the Lower Holte by Purslows gang - were the season ticket holders who where affected by this informed and offered the choice of where to sit?

There comes a time for all of us to walk away, for a multitude of reasons, be it financial, medical or emotional. Situations like this purely help to trigger difficult decisions to be made, which is completely understandable, and I hope that those who decide to walk away do so knowing that theyíve made the call for themselves rather than being pushed into it, because thatís not a nice thing to live with.

The club should be doing a lot more than an £80 voucher which converts into buying £15 worth of tat for those people that are going to be moved.

Yes.  They get to choose from any available seats in the stand.

It's really bad moving season ticket holders out of their seat which they have had for years.

Free or discounted access to the Terrace View or Lower Grounds would be an idea.
