Whatever the club offered as compensation someone would be on here calling it "a slap in the face". They couldn't win. £80 is pretty generous if you ask me.

I've just seen a grammar war. How could I have missed a chance to pop up and do some grammar naziing. FFS!

It's not £80 even.

OK fair enough I was just taking the previous posts on this thread at face value, about the face value. The point remains though, the club are under no obligation to maintain prices or seats, just as equally as fans are under no obligation to buy them. This is a storm in a tea cup.

Itís a storm in a teacup to those not affected by events. To those that have been shelling out money for their season tickets for years, through thin and thin, itís a bit of a kick in the teeth. Trying to think of an analogy, itís like people who have lived in the same run down London council flat for decades, suddenly it becomes trendy and people who never previously showed any interest in setting foot in the neighbourhood suddenly want a piece of the action so the council chuck out the long standing tenants to make way for the new money. That makes sense in my head anyway.

Itís business innit, all about the bottom line and Iím sure Heck is very good at it but letís not pretend he gives the slightest shit about who he has to fuck over in his pursuit of profit.

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.


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

Yeah, take someone's seat off them so you can make more money out of it by making it GA+, then give them GA+ for free. Genius.

An analogy might be that my favourite wine was owned by an old french family for hundreds of years and you could pick a bottle up for a reasonable price (in my opinion). In 2012 they got bought out by Francois Pinault's Artemis Group to go with their portfolio of luxury brands. the price doubled overnight.
Did you find me on here moaning? Did I get an £80 voucher? No because I am not precious.

Yeah, and I suppose you've been following your favourite wine since childhood, had posters of it over your walls and engaged with running battles with fans of other wines in the 80's etc.

Personally, I think those that loyally sat through the last decade of dross deserve a little more respect now it has come to a more successful time in our history.

Albeit, brief success, so far.

And not just from the club...

Might be the source of inspiration for some his nippers though. Or the odd birthday treat. Probably got more joy out of that vino than we've had for the past 20 years watching this shower.

Do you congratulate your superiors for their bravery when they make redundancies?

Isn't that what the Pride Rewards scheme is/was doing. Rewarding loyalty?

My favourite post of the week, that'll go down on well on SHA.com if they see it! Whatever your favourite wine is, I'm sure there's something fairly similar you could switch to, and you probably don't drink it every week, and plan your life around drinking a few glasses. Still, I'm interested to know what it is, if you'd care to share with the wine lovers of H&V?
