Pretty depressing outlook for fans that have supported the club over the past 15 years in particular.

They couldn’t give a shit.

They have caused a lot of acrimony while the team has been performing .  God help them if we take a dip in form

Swap 10000 seats over to corporate , chuck in some street food and £150 job done, i imagine sadly

I think that's the reality. We need more money and until we're Champions League regulars that's how they want to get it.

I suspect even if we get there, it ain’t going to stop

I don't think the demand is there for all these £150 seat / mediocre food packages . Hope it all blows up in their faces

We're there because the Premier League say we have to be, otherwise they wouldn't bother. They want success and they think the only way to get it at the moment is by what they're doing. If you're a Premier League supporter you have to compromise your principles.

And yet we're on course for our best season this century and the ground's virtually sold out every match. Strange world, innit?

The thing is people saying tehse £150 ssats are not selling. They are. I looked for forest game and there was virtually very few left.

Wanted to try ot out once just to experience it even if expensive

As for the rest of the notes, sorry but it just seems a utter waste of time.  Nothing interesting or exciting about. I understand why they are doing the corporate stuff to make more money as we need tk work eith making more money for FFP but i think it shouldn't have been at the expense of less seats at villa park. They should have done a small expansion of villa park just as "posh seats" area

I strongly suspect ‘bowl optimisation’ won’t lead to more seating.  It will just lead to more padded seating.

Good luck to anyone in the middle tier of the Trinity and near the halfway line in the Witton.  I worry about the middle front of the Holte Upper too.

I suspect they’ll turn those central trinity road areas into top dollar hospitality seats and they’ll be empty most of the times like the ones at Wembley and it’ll look terrible on television.
