Wouldn't mind them shifting it to a Friday night as an experiment to see the resulting crowd. It is a weekend when crowds are low and it is against Orient which is never going to be a big crowd. If they shift it to a Sunday I think it very unlikely I'd make the trip as it means getting in late and not being able to have a few calming drinks as I have to be in work the next day.

We played Port Vale on a Friday night about 7 or 8 years ago. In fact, here's a list of our home games and attendences just before each festive period...

 

Friday 21st Dec 2001 - Port Vale - 4317

Sat 14th December 2002 - Wigwam - 8269

Sat 20th December 2003 - QPR - 5603

Sat 11th December 2004 - Huddersfield - 8389

Sat 10th December 2005 - Swindon - 5354

Sat 23rd December 2006 - Northampton - 10207*

Sat 8th December 2007 - Doncaster - 4776

* £2 entry game

 

Half Man Half Biscuit didn't have a song called Friday Night And The Gates Are Low for nothing you know. Personally, I think like the Northampton game we try a £2 entry type thing again.

They even had the long return of Roger Palmer at half-time in that game against Port Vale and the crowd was still that shocking. Play it on saturday!

I'd vote for Saturday (or Sunday) @ 2 quid. I should be back for that one! I doubt I'd be back for Friday night.

If you reduce the price for the casual walk up fan to £2, I want a refund of some of my Season Ticket money. Afterall, I bought mine on the premise that it would save me money. If the club go around dropping prices willy nilly, and you consider the matches that I will not be able to attend, I may be better off financially paying on the day.

Oh, don't worry. There is a twenty five year waiting list for the free tickets when I can't make it to Latics, funny how no-one wants them when they are more than £2.01 isn't it?

proving once and for all that fashion (ie Blades rather than studs) wins over practicality every time.

 

Was John Terry wearing blades when he ruined my summer? :disappointed:
