So 30,000 again. Not sure what the issue is. We aren't gonna sell out until the points system is cleared up. I know loads of people who didn't think they could buy a ticket because they aren't a member or only had so many points.

Exactly. It's literally the clubs fault. No randomer, tourist/visitor, or even a Blade who hasn't been for years can decide to go and watch some Premier League football at the Lane anymore at the drop of a hat.

Is this an issue? Based on revenue from Broadcasting / ticketing, I'm not sure it is. Every game will be 30,000, I'm unsure what the fuss is about?

'Pathetic Blades Turnout' - we currently have nothing better to whinge at, do we? Appreciate our journey, appreciate the here and now. Not find faults in everything Tony. Life ain't perfect. But I'm certainly happy with the Blades

Dont know what this guy (Tony) is trying to say but there wont be many left by kick off.
Who can blame anyone for not taking the limited view seats , I've been in those at away games and it's very frustrating.
Love your pods with Beans ( not a pun ) very informative and realistic your comments and opinions are.
More of that please.

Well yeah it obviously is an issue if Joe Bloggs can't go and watch United at the drop of a hat because of some daft ticketing policy
Losing a potential lifelong fan and new generation of fans

I very much doubt that's the case, more likely we'll miss out on a few quid from a fair weather fan that won't go anywhere near the Lane if/when we're back in the Championship.

Which is unfortunate, but the away fans who've been on here trying to obtain tickets in our end shows that the club is justified in their approach..

Yeah but if Joe Bloggs and his mates are Burnley fans and give it the big ‘un in the Kop or BLUT they might find themselves fighting with Joe Blades and his mates, which will give SAG just the excuse they need to fuck us over.

Still think it's a daft way of doing things.

Talk of touts is ridiculous too, if you're buying football tickets from a resale site you're a fucking bellend.

So what if he only ever goes to 3 games in his life? It's £100 the club wouldn't have had previously

I've almost given up trying to buy a ticket because 1) I assume there aren't any 2) I don't understand the points system and can't be arsed with queueing for ages on the phone to find out.

Because the club have to ensure that Away fans don't go in the Home end, I think a few empty seats is better than risking issues in the stands which could put some people off from returning or the club facing potential sanctions.

I think the BB10 postcode might just give away that they're not a Blade when they're trying to get a single ticket on Cherry Street, don't you?
