  • Blimey. Is Airman back?
  • Is the tickets on sale now?.
  • thats good. we will have a full house, they must have done this to try and get attendances back up since our average this season is 14000
  • Good game to choose, for us they are one of the bigger teams (in terms of players) and from their side we won't lose a lot of revenue as being a poxy little club they will prob bring about 4 fans.
  • And, of course, it is a Sunday game (I think).

  • Excellent, we are going to this game. This will help my bank balance as there is 5 of us.

    Wigan have a Europa Cup game on the Thursday that is why the game has been switched to the Sunday, so their fans may not want to pay £25 to watch their team play us, that it why I can see them being given the incentive. I hope they have an away game in some far flung city in Eastern Europe on the Thursday.

    Europa League draw is happening right now and they are going to be playing Rubin Kazan in Russia, Maribor of Slovenia and another side from Belgium.
  • Wigan will face Rubin Kazan, Maribor of Slovenia and Belgium's Zulte Waregem

    Not really happens every season and a good thing to do. for instance someone may say they have not renewed because they have a short term cash flow problem but they start a new job in a couple of weeks, so they could be reminded of the interest free finance deal over 3 months, a few people may just need to have their memory jogged or need that extra reminder to push them over. Sound customer management not a sign of the state of our finances.

    I introduced the chaser phone calls and I agree, it's just sensible practice. It doesn't prove anything.
  • They at home to the Russian side on 24th October

    Compulsory £1 donation for new charity added on top. Bit weird but at least the kids will get some benefit.

  • What a strange idea - how to complicate a simple message...

    Somehow 'football for a sixer' doesn't have quite the same ring...why not do the charity collection bit on the day and let S/T holders join in too?
  • Sell out
  • I am uncomfortable with the principle of "compulsory" charity donations.

    It is up to individuals to decide firstly whether they wish to donate to charity and secondly to which charities they wish to donate.

  • Why not make it 4 quid and a quid to charity if we're in a charitable mood..
  • Sadly I'm away and I'll be missing this game. It's a real shame as we will, almost certainly, not get another crowd as big as this one this season. Having said that we lost last season's football for a fiver so it wasn't quite as enjoyable as previous editions.

    No abuse from me, Len - total agreement. It's not the money, of course, nor the cause, but the principle. Whoever heard of a compulsory donation? What happens if it's a cause you don't agree with?

    That's because youre right, there is no such thing as a compulsory donation.

    Strange idea.
