true faith : SEASON TICKET SURVEY

by • June 19, 2015 • NewsComments (10)1014

There’s been a lot of talk over the last year about supporters chucking season tickets. I’m Seasonticketsure many of you reading this know friends and fellow fans who have decided enough is enough with Mike Ashley’s running of the club and simply decided to cut off the direct debit as an act of protest at how the man has brought the club to one crisis after another.

Clearly, United is in something of a flap about the whole thing as its inconceivable Ashley would have been appeared on TV had the stands not been emptying rapidly in a mixture of discontent, protest and sheer boredom. Additionally, the deadline for season ticket renewals would not have been pushed back had the rate of renewal been anything like normal.

Our touts inside the ticket office, tell us season ticket direct debits have been cut off at a rate never experienced before and renewals are at an all time low.

Our wee survey is designed to test the water and see what you have done.

SURVEY NOW CLOSED. 

As well as that, please let us have the comments of season ticket holders – those who have chucked it and those are sticking. Your votes and comments will be of interst.

That is all.

    Despite various begging letters, email reminders, open letters and (seemingly empty) promises of change, I’m not going back – along with 5 others in my row. It’s not just the weak, insipid performances and various attempts by the owner to wind us up over the years, it’s the traditions I miss too. People in town stopping me to find out the result – never happens now, the amazing atmosphere, shopping at the club shops dotted around, I was a sucker for calendars, earrings, scarves, new tops, pjs, books, pens – anything and everything, I loved it but nothing would induce me to buy anything at the current ‘club’ shop. I even used to cut short my holidays to visit the ex in Indonesia to make the first home fixture. Apart from 98/99 when I missed the draw against Charlton. Mind I did miss a slap up meal in Lampung (just west of Krakatoa) to watch the game on the telly. It was all so important to me and I feel quite bitter and cheated to be forced to give up what has been part of my life for over 27 years. Pubs and telly for me in future – can’t not watch my team.

    I DECIDED TO CHUCK MY SEASON TICKET IN AS THE WHOLE SITUATION SINCE ASHLEY TOOK CHARGE HAS BEEN DEPRESSING AND TO BE HONEST WE SHOULD OF BEEN OFFERED A FREE SEASON AFTER THE RUBBISH WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO WATCH WEEK AFTER WEEK. I WILL MISS MY FRIEND PAT AND OTHERS AS I HAVE SUPPORTED FOR 25YEARS JUST WILL NOT BE THE SAME BUT TELLY AND PUBS FOR ME NOW.

    Along with 5 friends I’ve chucked mine in. We’ve each had our Season Tickets for 26 years but none of us see the point in going to support what, in our view, is no longer NUFC.
    I lost about £150(ish) as I was on the 10 year deal, but eventually bit the bullet a couple of weeks before the end of the season and cancelled my Direct Debit.
    I’ll miss it, a lot, but have actually been weaned off the addiction by Ashley over the last 8 years.
    No ambition. No atmosphere. No point.

    I had two season tickets, at the end I couldn’t give them away near the back end of the season. I mainly chucked it because of Ashley, but the was an element of the whopper fans taking up long time season ticket holders seats around me. Actually said to the guy behind me, who’s constant clapping was getting on my threepenny bits, that he wouldn’t get fish at half time. He said he applauded every pass, moron!

  6. David Turner says:

    The club seems to be having enormous trouble in recruiting coaching staff-what chance therefore of getting any PLAYERS in??

  7. Dan Wilson says:

    As long as people still buy them it wont change. If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem. if you have a season ticket these days you have NO right to complain about the fat man. Crap football, crap atmosphere, crap stewards, crap players and crap fans. I’ve better things to do with my time. Cant see me ever getting another to be honest. I’d rather shit in my hands and clap.

  8. Anthony McIvor says:

    I don’t knock people jacking their ticket in, this year is the first time I’ve ever thought about jacking it in. But I’ve decided to renew. I’ll probably regret it and come home peed off on a Saturday but I’m gonna give McClaren a chance, he deserves that at least, yes it all depends on the support from above and so far there’s been zilch. But here’s hoping

    I packed my season ticket in at the end of the 13/14 season after 22 years and i was proved right to do so after the dross that was served up last season. I have seen nothing from the club which would tempt me back.
    Same lies different season.
