Reportedly, a record number sold already which has got to be good news.

Good news though. More to come hopefully. Few more big names to attract bums on seats, and it is all looking rosey.

I feel like that article is fake news after looking at the season ticket seat map.

*Cue someone editing the seat map to make it look like some sections have more spots sold than before.*

One would hope they are increased if only because the differential between ST and individual match day purchase is now larger making "cherry picking" less viable.

No actual figures of ticket sales, so just marketing bull s..t then.

A football club I follow recently announced record sales for their season tickets, which on reading was actually a comparison to this time last year. Many people though were quick to spot that this year they've been on sale for nearly 4 weeks, whereas at this time last year they'd been on sale for less than a week. Marketing BS.

I fail to see what the club has to gain by making this up.

It is starting to be a knee jerk reaction for some people on this board to criticise anything and everything the club says or does.

Ok, yes they do make mistakes and it is right and proper that those are discussed but to assume the worst regarding every announcement is inappropriate.

We are supposed to be supporters of the club although I'm increasingly convinced that a number of posters on here are anything but.

Grumpy - we're told about record sales every year and every year attendances go down. It might well be true but to repeat the same thing pretty much every year, in the face of evidence to the contrary, lacks a bit of credibility

Or no evidence to back up the claim.

On the other hand if the club had posted that season ticket sales were down on last season we would be having a different discussion possibly involving access and results this season....of course the club is going to look at the positives....and if the trend is upward then great. Let's not knock the club for looking at the positives....

Tigger, it's fine looking at the positives but constant hype is a turn off and counter-productive unless backed up by real and visible action.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a screen shot of the e-ticketing page this time last year but my recollection was that most of W04 and W05 were sold together with a smattering of seats around the halfway line in the East stand.

This year, a significant number of seats in W06 also seem to have gone.

Whilst I can't back this up it does seem to me that there may indeed have been an increase.

I have taken an appropriate screen shot for comparison when this discussion arises next year.

Not arguing with that...just saying if they were posting about falling ST ticket sales they would be under different criticism...damned if they do...damned if they don't...

Personally I believe that next season is going to be a test of the new owners influence. They came in too late this season to make a difference...so I hope they have had a long hard look and have some new ideas to increase the crowds..

And if they said nothing, there would undoubtedly be complaints that there isn't enough publicity.....
