    I really don't understand why Season Ticket holders feel they should be entitled to an automatic priority on away tickets. A season ticket gets you a guaranteed seat at all home games, at a discounted rate.

    Big fan of the Drmic link being reported today. Would be perfect for the 2nd choice striker, something different to Pukki as Drmic is better in the air, but still a clinical finisher.

    That's actually a good point. I think people will complain because "it's always been that way", but (as a ST holder) I think you're right. In the past, a season ticket was sometimes seen like a "super membership for proper fans", but I agree it's really just a discount on all home games. SB

    The Football Club has to deal with huge swings of demand. The core away support will get their tickets , and the saving from what they would have paid should help. I do agree that these folks are the ones who maybe should have been given a free or subsidized priority based on their travel . (Except the Cabbagers that think they have reserved seats and moaned at my son - they can shove it) As for the rest of us, we all want to go to White Hart Lane and West Ham. These will sell out the away allocation easily. If the 750 can get theirs, which they will, how else can the Club monitor this for a whole season? Those of us that went to the last few away games (I'm not sure how anyone failed to get a ticket for Wigan that REALLY tried to get one) are the classic glory hunters that all Clubs have. I ended up with 1250 points somehow but only went to a few away games each year. I'm not expecting any favours. As a season ticket holder that renewed early I have a nice comfy seat for all 19 games for around £26 quid. Great value.

    I am pleased with it. Based in London so no season ticket. I only did 3 away games last year, but I can hopefully secure tickets to a few more this year with membership. OTBC

    But it's £50 they have to pay just to be on the same level as someone who hasn't sniffed Carrow Road in their lifetime. I get why that would **** people off, no matter if you'd make it back. Not if you are one of the 750. There had to be a line drawn somewhere. 750 loyal supporters that still have to pay £50 Who will get that back (compared to last season) over the course of a few away matches at £30.

    Apologies if this has been raised before, but there are 90+ replies and I don't have the time to read through all of them. The issue for an exile like me who lives abroad is that if I can only get to one game (it might be two) it will end up costing £70- £40 for premier membership and £30 for the ticket. But when you consider there may be only 1500 casual tickets available per match, you aren't even guaranteed a ticket even if you're a premier member, unless they cap it. As a result, there's a risk that someone like me could pay £40 for membership and then not even get a ticket anyway. For these reasons, is it even worth buying a membership, just on the off chance you can get a ticket for the only game you're in the country for?

    Isn't this situation just typical. My son and I, who have been season-ticket holders for 12 years plus, went to NINE away games.It would have been 10 if the club hadn't messed up over ticket allocation for Rotherham. That means we, like many other supporters in the same boat, will have to pay £100 extra just to get a chance of a high profile game along with "Joe Bloggs" who hasn't been to a game for years. I wonder how many of these fans that will benefit from these changes would have considered going to Hull on a wet November evening or Blackburn on a cold Saturday before Christmas as we did?

    We are northern-based Canaries and get to about 4 away games each year ..what with the cost. I think this new scheme might mean I may not be able to buy any! Unless I'm mistaken. It wouldn't be worth paying for membership for us all then the ticket costs. And if allocations are taken by members then will be far too far down the queue. The points system was bad for us last year too as I couldn't get Wigan or Rotherham tickets not having enough points. That's the trouble with success I suppose. TV is all I may have next year. But I think at least most games will be viewable. Not a good announcement for me. And don't talk about Carrow Rd attending. I've not managed to get a ticket in years ....season ticket holder numbers are very high. If they are on general sale it's late on and then you've less time for the pre planning / travel etc.

    Still think our Stadium is big enough?

    We all seem to be well acquainted with the scenario we prefer for all of Aarons, Godfrey, Buendia and Lewis. Keep hold of them all for the entirety of the coming season. Rely upon them to fully contribute to a successful season ie. survival and maybe that little bit more. See their respective values surge, as they surely will. Then bow to the inevitable and, willingly or otherwise, cash in. That's the best we can hope for surely? We can only perform the Canute act for so long. In the meantime we tell ourselves that a season of further establishment in the comfort of Carrow Road is the best thing for all of them. Rather a regular first team season in the yellow than a bit of bench warming in a red tracksuit after all.This, of course, may or may not be the case, but it suits our bias to the full.Whether the player or his agent thinks the same is a matter for conjecture. For the next month or two then it's just a question of keeping our fingers crossed and relying upon Webber, Farke and the scouting team to continue to perform miracles whatever happens. (If we cannot avoid losing any of our youngsters in the coming month or so then a good price accompanied by healthy sell-on clauses is essential.)

    We could be top of the League by around 2.20 🥳

    Will write more on this later but I think these changes are disgusting, money grabbing of the worst kind. They’ve got this badly wrong and it reflects very poorly on our so called “community club.”

    With all due respect to Crystal Palace, Max is much better than that. He's a top 6 player and he shouldn't be looking at other Premier League teams. I hope the club don't stand in his way if we get an acceptable offer from a top team. Anyone else should be politely refused. The same goes for Godfrey, Lewis and Buendia but Aarons is the best of the lot.

    Very poor from the club. I hope they listen to the feedback and act quickly to reverse these changes - specifically with regards to the away allocation. Capping home ticket prices at £30 is a good and commendable thing BUT it does meant that relatively season tickets are worth less. Sure you're guaranteed your bum on a seat but with a membership and not being fussy where you sit you can pretty much get tickets for every match. The away scheme is just terrible. No reward for loyalty, and nothing to stop a Manure fan from Great Yarmouth picking up a membership and ticket ahead of a season ticket holder or someone who went to nine games last season. Utterly bonkers.

    £50 on top of my season ticket and 3rd priority in queue? Thanks for rewarding loyalty!

    Let Palace have Max Arrons for what ever that are prepared to pay. Never heard of him myself. Max Aarons on the other hand: they can bloody well sod off.

    Which as you say is very little, which means your knowledge is very little. Which your comments demonstrate time and time again. Inverse to this, I have watched/written a lot about women’s football, so by your own measure I must know a lot more about it than you. Or are you claiming that despite not actually having much knowledge you are in a great position to comment on it? You have an agenda and you seem to be trying to push reality to fit that - when it clearly doesn’t. Women’s football is gaining in popularity, especially televised women’s football. The 6.1m people who watched the England game on Sunday is hard evidence of that. That is a larger TV audience than every televised Norwich game last season combined. Those people obviously wanted to watch the match, despite your derogatory comments about the quality. The professionals that play football will, by and large, say they don’t want it compared with men’s football as they know there are differences between the two and women’s football should be enjoyed in its own right. It sounds like it isn’t for you, fair enough, but your insistence that no one actually likes it and it is all some conspiracy that it is even allowed to happen is weird. I think you should stop worrying about feminism, it isn’t going to impact on your life. Greater gender equality/equity is actually likely to improve everyone’s quality of life through a stronger economy.

    I am equally sure that most of our players will recognise when they are on to a good thing where they are. To go to any big club, they will not be guaranteed much first team football, so they will not necessarily be tempted there. Money could turn their heads from a lesser but richer than us kind of club, like Palace, but are many of the clubs outside the top six in any better position than we will be next season in terms of quality of coaching/togetherness/fitness/ability/confidence/momentum...... No. Keep this squad together and we could be a real force next season - and the chance for Max/Ben/Jamal etc to get a whole season at first team level in the PL with us is something that should keep them here.

    I do wonder if some premier league clubs are under the belief that our star players can be picked up on the relative cheap. I'd be very interested to see what offers (if they do) come in for Max Aarons. Palace obviously believe that they will be able to take Aarons off our hands, but at what price are they willing to go to?

    No such thing for clubs of ours and Palace’s size. Were West Brom an established PL club? A move to Palace would be a pretty much sideways step

    All good reasons not to sell them your best players. It makes no sense to sell players to clubs you will realistically be in competition with.

    They haven't been this excited at an arrival at their club since they hired Paul Hurst.

    I wasn't actually drawing any conclusions about expansion but merely stating the facts. I agree that we need to do it for the sake of the next generation but I can't see how we can make it happen unless I win Euromillions. If I do I'll gladly hand it over. I am strongly against huge borrowing. Just look what happened down the road. The one thing that would help a little is safe standing but in the current political climate that's unlikely to happen for years. We are fortunate at the moment to have people running the club who can be trusted to look to the future. They know they can sell 40,000 tickets for half the games in the Premier League but how long will we be there? It looked like Stoke had become an established Premier League club but all of a sudden they are now a very ordinary Championship club.
