    Only because you stated quite clearly that our club should run its business to suit your morals. If you missed my opinion it's that it's our own choice whether we buy a shirt or not. I would like gambling and associated advertising to be regulated far more than it is but that's not an issue for our club. Not unless they comply with all the other morals of every Tom, Rick and Kingo.

    But that was what you were saying. You also seem to be arguing that I'm in favour of the deregulation which has taken us here. I'm not. I liked how it used to be. Your comparison with cigarette advertising is not well thought out. Because as far as I know legislation was never changed to encourage people to smoke. But it was changed to encourage people to gamble.

    We live in a democracy and over the years democratic governments have deregulated the gambling industry to where it is today. So whilst I understand people taking a personal stand because of their own morals it's wrong to expect others or our club to do so. The people who make these decisions at our club are charged with competing with others within the boundaries of what's legal in our democratic country. Some of the stuff I've read on social media questioning if we area community club because of this seems plain daft to me. There's a lot goes on in the world that is legal and against my morals but all I can do is make a personal stand or lobby politicians to make changes to the law.

    I think you have always had the choice to be a customer if that's what floats your boat Indy

    Yes I realise that. But the paywall was already there. I'm not saying I agree with it. You mention season ticket holders and they have not done very well out of these changes. The basic membership that was included in the price has been taken away and at the same time the price differential between ST and casual match day prices has been removed. This effects nearly 25,000 fans? It is what it is and I guess we have to decide if the tickets are still worth buying. Or not renew. However these changes were made after season tickets were renewed which also seems odd.

    And the paywall hasn't been introduced because it was already there?

    I know and there lies a problem because if we sell these tickets for £30 then they all have to go to general sale. So back in 2004 I got an away season ticket in order to be assured of getting priority. So that was £20 + membership + whatever the ticket cost. So I never paid the price that was stated on the ticket. I paid 2 extra premiums to get me to the front of the queue.

    This is true but not new? Surely nonmembers always had to wait for general sale to buy a ticket. The issue here seems to be the increase in membership prices and the different tiers of membership. If everyone just brought the cheapest one nothing would have changed?

    Even better because when they realise it's not up to the standard expected for casual fans I would be able to pay for it again on buyback. At least it wouldn't be any more expensive than I paid the first time...

    Sounds like a plan Indy. Unfortunately I'm given to understand they wouldn't want my single seat or location. Apparently they need a bank of seats in a prime position to tempt them. Although getting it for free may make a difference to that decision making.... Would they bring their own blanket or expect me to provide that too?

    They clearly are if they do what you want and increase season ticket prices instead of charging away memberships.

    Before long they'll be expecting other season ticket holders to pay for their halftime Bovril. If folk wanna stump up £50 to be more important than other fans that's their own choice.

    'kin hell!Season ticket holders again. What have we ever done to posters on here. Casual tickets are already as cheap as season tickets let alone increasing them further to subsidise other people's jaunts. Everybody seems to have a selfish view of what they believe is an entitlement. TBH I don't really see why people who pick and choose their away games should have any priority over other people who pick and choose their away games. Does it work like that for home games?

    It wouldn't be a close season if Jimbo wasn't having a meltdown rant about something.

    I do understand why we can no longer get 40,000 in the stadium buddy. I was just pointing out that was the original potential. We don't have that potential at Carrow Road now. But with an ambitious new City Stand could maybe reach 35,000. Eventually I believe we should aim to do that but the logistical problems are probably as much or even more of an obstacle than the financial. To compare it to the Jarrold being rebuilt is a bit chalk and cheese. The Jarrold was basically a shell which housed a few thousand season ticket holders who could be accommodated elsewhere. However with the city stand Delia's unpopular decisions would include telling season ticket holders there's no room at the inn. Even more difficult is managing without the match day infrastructure currently in the city stand. The old South stand had none of that. And of course the dressingrooms are in there. Maybe we could get the old double decker portakabins back (maybe with the Terry butcher damaged door). Perhaps put them in the hotel corner? As for your question about advertising. It was aggressive during the first half of last season. Even on a Friday before a weekend game. But of course after Christmas there was no need. If these seats were undesirable for casual sale it is strange that people were prepared to spend hundreds of pounds on them for season tickets. So I can see both sides of this debate from my myopic bubble.

    Move Ground to move forward.

    When I first went in the 60s Carrow Road was a 40,000 stadium. Ideally we'd still have that capacity. Unfortunately, even though the stands are bigger and better, the best we can do is 27,000. I think one of the problems we have now is that we could fill a 40,000 stadium but, and I think this is part of Rickyyy's historical point, I'm not convinced our average gate over a period of time would be much different to the present capacity. I say do it but it surely has to be a complete rebuild of the city stand. What to do with all those season ticket holders while it's built? If they're selfish ones tell them tough t1tty! Otherwise buy them sky subscriptions and ifollow or whatever it is now... (That last bit was not serious BTW. Most of them are old soooo..... That's not serious either)

    Again! Who are these selfish long term season ticket holders and what have they said pointing to an 'I'm alright Jack's mentality? Just to reiterate, season ticket holders stand to gain if the stadium is expanded. If not they certainly won't lose. Because as it stands the only advantage they have is being assured of the tickets they paid for. There's now no saving in match day prices. No advantage in buying away tickets (not that I ever believed there should be but it was a benefit). No advantage in buying another home ticket. (I agree with that too but it was a benefit). Some of the people criticising them are probably pontificaters who won't be buying tickets anyway.

    So build it and the man Utd supporters will come. Is that a reason for or against?
