This is awful from the club 17:52 - Dec 18 with 24847 viewslondonlisa2001

Today's Guardian publishes details of costs to young people of supporting their club, including ticket prices, replica kits and mascot prices.

To my absolute horror I see that we charge more for youngsters to be a mascot than any other premier league club (well, the same as QPR). This is an utter disgrace. £450 when clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, both Manchester clubs and both Liverpool clubs charge nothing.

Surely with the income we have we don't need to be ripping off local kids (or their parents) like this? What about the Swans mad youngster whose parents can't afford it? How do they feel? Is there any provision for this if parents simply can't, understandably, pay that amount?

I realise that from time to time we probably have kids doing it for a special reason and they don't, presumably, pay (illness related and so on) but this is just terrible in an area where people are hardly rolling in spare cash.

I had no idea that we charged this sort of money - sometimes every player has a mascot and we're charging this for all of them? It's awful. Is this something that is widely known ?

Fine whatever you prefer but I think you will find it is much the same thing and the statement I made is correct english usage (as well as being more appropriate to the point I was making), this might help

http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/61381/what-exactly-does-all-items-not

Consider the old saying - all that glitters is not gold

I of course can understand your confusion but I would consider it basic logic speak

i.e. the statement "All the Directors are shareholders" is not true (which was central to the logic point being made - as the poster was referring to the directors owning the club)

or put in perhaps a way that is more familiar to you - Not all the shareholders are directors (the fact that some are is less important than the fact some are not)

The net effect of the statements being if you had a ven diagram of Directors and shareholders, some would be in the overlap i.e being both Director and shareholder (Huw and LD) and others would only be in one group or the other.



So you agree that both you and Darr got it wrong with your grammar.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I'd suggest the long waiting list proves a lot can afford it and are happy with the package, just because a handful of ppl on here don't agree doesn't mean the 20,000 who go every week agree

Nor am I impressed by the apologists' argument that the odd bit of charity here and there (i.e. a few free places) can put things right. It's the old story of entitlement for the well off and crumbs for the disadvantaged - and we are talking about kids.

Our directors have a lot to answer for on this one. Many more policies of this ilk and I will hesitate to put my gate money into their pockets. The Trust really must take a stand on the issue.

How many times can you ask the same question and get the same answer?

No, nobody owns the club. If all the directors were one person, they still wouldn't own the club. Majority shareholder yes, owner, no. However they aren't one person, they are multiple people so it doesn't even get that far.

NO director owns the club. NO director is even majority shareholder.

Actually they are not, they hold more shares than others but collectively those other shareholders hold more. Therefore they cant be a majority shareholder.

It has nothing to do with "a lot" being able to afford it. The fact is the price shouldn't be that high for a game of football and is double the price of many top European sides in arguably better leagues. Also the fact it is so high means many CANT afford it, so telling us a lot of people can doesn't really solve that issue.

A lot of people CAN afford £700 season tickets, however hiking them to that price would be unfair and way to high... Yet the equivelant match day tickets would cost even more than that at a whopping £760!!

A fair pricing scheme in line with what other top non English European sides would be around £28, and again more in line with a fair % of minimum wage. Currently someone working 38 hours a week at £6.50 or whatever it is (£230 after tax?) would have to pay 20% of his salary for a single match day ticket. That is too expensive.

There is no two ways about it.

I thought to be considered a majority shareholder you have to own at least 51% of the shares?

To be a majority shareholder you need 50% (+1).

So no... We have no majority shareholders and no outright owners.

Absolutely spot on.

Season tickets are currently £420. In order for a season ticket to be beneficial to the fan the criteria is that a 19 match book works out cheaper than 19 individually bought tickets. 19 individually bought tickets comes to £760.

I wonder how many of these "we can afford it so its fine, bugger the ones that cant" would be up in arms should their season tickets be hiked to the £700 mark. And yet they would still be getting it cheaper than the ridiculous match day tickets.

No they aren't.

You said in a previous thread that if season tickets were priced at £700 then they wouldn't sell out. That suggests that for the local area £36.80 (£700 / 19 = £36.80) is too much for a ticket. So tickets currently priced at £38.50 on average... Wait for it.... Is not priced fairly.

I suppose that this subject is emphasising the difference in people's philosophy and ideas about how the club should be run.

If you are happy that the club is run on purely business' lines that mascots are like an x box or I pad - if you don't pay the going rate you don't get one.

If you feel that the club should not simply or solely be a business and should put something back for the community then the price is too high and believe that the club shot stop treating the fans as customers who are there to be exploited.

Spot on. The issue being, of course, that peoples stances are conflicting where it should be a simple case of one or the other.

A typical stance from someone who has a season ticket is... The club is in touch with its community and run for the fans... Prices should remain ridiculously high because the club is a money hungry business... I am perfectly happy paying only £22 a game and wouldn't pay £700 a year even though its less than the match day ticket prices which i condone.

All a bit of a nonsense really based on self serving ground. Not the attitude of the fans we had on our journey up where jacks looked after jacks. The Premier League has certainly enticed that sort of person.

Well no actually.

The way it is normally done is that a potential acquiror would approach the chairman of the board who would then discuss it with the board, which would collectively decide how to proceed.

One problem with Jenkins' dual roles is he could hypothetically receive an offer wearing his chairman's hat and then independently continue discussions gathering requested information he has access to wearing his management hat.

Now is not right time to deal with this given an offer may be almost on the table, but as I have said before the Trust is negligent in not addressing this huge gaping potential conflict of interest.


Hail the Shake man!!
