The Newcastle United season ticket prices have been revealed on Wednesday afternoon.

With tumbleweed blowing through the NUFC summer transfer window, the last thing fans expected, was that prices in every single area would go up.

At a time when there has never been more money flowing into the Premier League, there is no justification for any club to put their season ticket prices up.

There has seemingly been an across the board basic increase of 5% on all headline prices.

However, for fans who have had their season tickets for more than one season excluding those on long-term price deals) there is an extra nasty surprise.

If you had a season ticket during the 2016/17 Championship season (a price which was a reduction of 10% on 2015/16), then you had that same price also for last (2017/18) season.

However, that has all disappeared and so now those season ticket holders are getting a double whammy of a price rise.

For example, an adult who has had their season ticket for more than a year in the family enclosure (up in the worst seats in the Gods) sees a price increase of over 20% (new price £397, standard price for that section was £378 last season, but they had paid £329).

Pretty ironic that the club reveal these ticket increases on the same day that the Chronicle are reporting that Rafa Benitez has a similarly ‘modest’ summer transfer budget as to the one he  had a year ago.

The Newcastle United 2018/19 season ticket prices and in brackets last season’s standard price (season tickets holders of two years or more paid 10% less than that figure last season):

Family Area

£397 Adult (£378)

£324 Student and Senior Citizen (£309)

£82 Under 18s (£78)

Seating Category Three

£571 Adult (£544)

£457 Student and Senior Citizen (£435)

    sheep to be sheared, he`s taken the Michael for over 10 yrs & nobody bats an eyelid
    🐑🐑🐑

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    We have some of the best deals in the Premiership and are half the price of some clubs. The first thing we can thank him for is prices. They are not much different to eleven years ago. Most fans are on the ten year deal so will not be affected. On a match by match basis still very cheap compared to most clubs who charge double.
    So well done to Mike on prices.

    • TheNutJob

      idiot

      • Monkseaton Magpies

        We have the cheapest prices in the Premier league for those on the ten year deal and for normal supporters still good. Would you like to pay nearly two thousand at Arsenal or a thousand at Liverpool. Please give Mike Ashley a big thank you for keeping prices low.

        • Anonymouse1

          to watch teams that play in Europe every season & have top players, yes i`d pay the price.

        • Westdentoon

          ….I’d rather pay a grand all day long knowing I could be watching my team in champions league finals and regularly spending 50mil plus on 1 player!

        • Liam Hogg

          A grand to watch Salah & CL football or almost a grand to watch Joselu & 10 men behind the ball hmmmm…

      • panther

        I would have called the troll far worse than that

      • Rich Lawson

        Yes I don’t get that when earlier today he was complaining about being kicked out his seats ?

    • Billmag

      2 relegations 3 near misses doesn’t rate cup competition’s = no increase in season tickets.

    • Rich Lawson

      But you’ve just been kicked out your seats ?

  • FatParosite

    Trying to make the most of the last dregs of Rafalution.

  • Your mum

    A rise of less than £20 for most, less than £2/month on DD. This is a non story.

    Did you praise the club for the championship prices we paid last season?

    • TheNutJob

      praise, for relegation, go away you fool

      • Your mum

        No, that is not what i said, they could have put the prices up like most clubs do on promotion, but they didn’t.

        • FatParosite

          Ashley is not interested in Match day revenue. He wants the TV money & free advertising. This issue is a chatty parsley garnish.

    • Dillon Tovak

      Incremental increases add up.

  • Paul Patterson

    Right, show Rafa the money then. £60m+ should be reasonable . .

  • Toon

    Well don’t go, why would you? Every year Ashley takes the total pi## out of fans and knows it will still be a full house every week, own worst enemies. Stopped giving Ashley money years ago when this was pretty obvious, it’s easy as all games are on TV, usually in the pub

  • Leazes.

    You really need a graph to compare all clubs prices over the period of say 10 years.

    When the stadium was expanded I got a ticket for level 7 about halfway for £520 …. its now the family section and I can see the price is now £397….. about 75% of the price from 18 years or so?

    Shepherd and Hall went for quality and high prices, Ashley has pushed the club downmarket with cheaper prices, and down marketed everything by the look of things.

    Shearer and Owen were on £110k a week, I don’t think Joselu is!

    Yes a graph.

    • Scott Robinson

      Can’t beat a good graph or pie chart or venn diagram. My close season is just simply so empty and unfulfilling without them! Don’t encourage the Chron’ as they will soon have 7 pie charts each day to show WHY? the percentage of toon fans who wear a scarf and simultaneously scoff a pastie and sas-age roooowl are too fat for their creaking plastic grey seat. And a nice graph to show the falling sales figures…’Chronic … ill’

      • Leazes.

        I’m serious you have to compare the club and its fortunes with those around it.

      • Kneebotherm8

        Ashley prefers the Pie chart………………well he prefers the pie anyway..

        • Peaky

          Nice one
          😂😂😂

    • Steve Smith

      It’s actually quite interesting to see how the club’s marketed/perceived quality off the pitch translates to the results on the pitch.

      I met with one of Nicola Cortese’s inner circle via work about 3 or 4 years ago before his resignation while Southampton were in the ascendancy as a club and their ethos behind the scenes according to the person I met was all about building an almost luxury brand image and perception.

      These last couple seasons the ethos has changed to value and cheapness with ticket price reductions etc. Interestingly this has coincided with their regression on the pitch.

      A mirror image of the change from Hall to Ashley.

      • Leazes.

        …..and exactly the same as Ashley.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        So you are advocating a larger price increase and get Sunseeker to be our official boat sponsor?

        • Steve Smith

          Alright Cathy Newman. Calm down.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            A few months ago, the comments were that we need a bigger ground as demand exceeded supply. As increasing capacity is expensive at St James, it makes sense to do what any business does when demand exceeds supply, increase prices.

    • Rob Brown

      Seriously? You’re complaining because ticket prices are less than 18 years ago?

      • Leazes.

        Yes

        ps I’m blocking you as soon as I get this bloody thing working

  • Wezza147

    Now the trolls can’t use the “Our savour MA has kept season ticket prices low”
    Pure greed.
    What next? Rafa goes? Lascelles goes? Empty stadium?

    • Paul Patterson

      They can use the alternative line ‘Mike is a genius who has upped the prices to create more revenue’ (that we won’t see spent on players) . .

      • FatParosite

        Matchday revenue is not what interests the fat flea.

        • Dillon Tovak

          50,000 x 19 = lots of vodka chasers and kebabs though.

    • Leazes.

      Its never been an argument because Ashley had to lower the prices for an inferior product, he had to fill the empty spaces from ‘customers’ who walked away (twice, there were 2 huge walk outs)…. he down marketed the club and aimed prices at those who hadn’t had a chance to get in during the Entertainers and Shearer period….. SD Customers.

      Compare what we were paying and what the likes of Tottenham fans were paying…… that’s what he’s done…. filled empty seats and taken away the purpose of the club.

      • Rob Brown

        Dream on mate. Those protests didn’t even make a dent in his revenue..

      • Duh

        not sure I agree with that, the club may lose a few seats but attendance is much more resilient at Newcastle compared to other clubs. The fan base is pretty loyal and I think prices could go quite a bit higher before overall income fell (loss in lost volume was higher than increased revenue per seat).

        actually, I am somewhat surprised he has not to date tried to totally screw over the match day crowd

  • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

    Mine paid for. Up 133 quid but what else you going to do a Saturday?! ⚽️🍻🤪 hwtl.

    • TheNutJob

      the same thing you do on Saturdays when the Toon plays away

      • glassjawsh-got-banned

        it’s getting to the point that streaming the games for free is starting to feel like a non-violent form of protest against all this unbridled greed.

      • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

        I attend all away games.

        • Soldier

          i doubt that

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            Happily meet anyone off here at an away game take your pick, even porto if you want. Been to watch england abroad, was at the last championships. Football and nufc is a way of life to me is been since I was 6 year old.

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            me *has been

    • Megatron1505

      Attend EDL rallies…..but your not racist obviously 🙄

      • Leazes.

        I’ve reported his profile but nothing from Disqus. I hope his IP address is being monitored by Special Branch.

        • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

          He hasn’t said anything inflammatory but for not having the same political view as you. He doesn’t have the same view as me but he has every right to hold his view.

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            just because you CAN be an idiot doesn’t mean you SHOULD be

          • TheNutJob

            👍.

          • panther

            Wow, I’ve just agreed with you, I’m confused

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            Thank you for a sensible input I was merely posting a comment about season tickets/s. Your one of the very few on here who believes in democracy and freedom of speech also one of a handful I have some respect for. In the words of Churchill “the fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists”

          • TheNutJob

            i believe in democracy, Robinson doesn`t so your argument doesn`t hold up

          • Guest 9

            Can’t agree. The bloke is trying to stand up for issues that the mainstream media and officials won’t discuss. Jimmy Saville anyone?

          • TheNutJob

            he`s a racist. don`t bother me again

          • Dillon Tovak

            What issues? That some people are paedophiles, there are lots of cases of domestic abuse, there are groups of people gathering together spreading hate and violence? Yeah there are, irrelevant to skin colour or religion though.
            Why shouldn’t we speak up when somebody is advocating freeing somebody who actively tries to stir up racial tension through lies and distorted figures?
            It’s freedom of speech 😂
            Using Jimmy Saville as an example isn’t really relevant because no one is creating groups calling ALL celebrities paedophilles.

          • Rich Lawson

            Now then !,Now then !

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            Go and educate yourself then come back. That’s me done for today.

          • Dillon Tovak

            Anyone that supports tommy Robinson is the one that needs to educate themselves.
            He’s one of the worst people I’ve ever seen for manipulating facts and figures to support his outright racist views.
            Seriously, anyone that takes what he has to say on board is an utter UTTER moron.

          • Dillon Tovak

            People like you only care about freedom of speech when it allows you to be racist.
            If someone came up to your mum and called her a fat ugly pig would you applaud them and say i support your use of freedom of speech.
            You pretend to be a freedom fighter just so you can abuse people, you couldn’t give a 💩 about freedom of speech in reality, it’s just the only boarder line rational comeback to people when they rightly call you a racist.

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            😂people like me?! You don’t even know me personally. I’ve said nothing out of line but because my name I post under is what it is you and lots of others have hissy fits, you need to go and educate yourself on tommy also and not believe the propaganda the media, government, police, & left spread about him. As for going to support Chelsea I will pass I’ve always had a soft spot for Leeds and there fans tho, proper bunch them lot. Nufc is my club always has been always will be. Followed them everywhere home away/abroad unlike many on here who are just armchair. Maybe see you at a match on me travels we can have an adult conversation about things? Instead of all the abusive messages and insults people fling about on here to me and lots of others. I would happily meet anyone of the mag I’ve always been willing too, we are all adults.

          • Liam Hogg

            Exactly a think tommy Robinson is an absolute gimp but he doesn’t that’s how freedom of speech works. These lot aren’t having a witch hunt & the lads not said a single thing other than Heaney reknewing his season ticket

        • Rob Brown

          Now now. Are we allowed freedom of expression or what?

          • Dillon Tovak

            Freedom to be a douche.

          • Leazes.

            Not when it impinges on other people’s freedom and safety

        • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

          🤣🤣🤣you lot crack me up.

        • Rich Lawson

          They never explain their blocking policy for seemingly harmless posts so I wouldn’t wait to long for a reply to this.

      • Rob Brown

        Nice one duuuuude!

    • Big Hairy Man

      Tommy might be getting an easy time in jail as Mr. Big is taking good care of him. “Bend over Tommy!”

    • Dillon Tovak

      Moron

  • TheNutJob

    Tesco has Glenfiddich on special at £25

  • ghostrider

    Just remember one thing. Nobody’s forced to buy a season ticket. Nobody is forced to buy one match ticket.
    Nobody is forced to even stand outside of the stadium on a match day and just take in the noise.
    Nobody is forced to support Newcastle United.

    Anyone that hates Ashley for putting up prices, don’t renew or go and that way he can’t rip you off if that’s how you view it.

    In the meantime other people will take those places.
    Anyone not renewing?

    • TheNutJob

      i won`t be renewing as i haven`t got a ticket & by the looks of things i won`t be going to St James` anytime soon.

      • ghostrider

        Fair enough. It’s your choice.

      • Blackburn1066

        more like you and we will get our club back

    • Big Hairy Man

      Of course nobody is forced to buy a season ticket but that still doesn’t justify the price hike when there’s more money than ever flowing into premier league clubs. It’s just greed, plain and simple.

      • Rob Brown

        So how do we stand compared to other clubs?

        • Big Hairy Man

          I’m not talking about just our club. It’s all clubs in England. You can get a season ticket at Bayern Munich for £150

          • Geordiegiants

            100%

          • Rob Brown

            But isn’t that because you’re paying to see games in the “best league in the world?”. You’ve got to compare like with like.

        • Blackburn1066

          They are great we are sh-t , thanks to the fat man

      • ghostrider

        Tel me the last time the season tickets went up.

        • Soldier

          if you turn a BMW into a Beetle you don`t ask more for it
          although a crackpot like you probably would

          • ghostrider

            The problem is Ashley hasn’t done that, has he?

            Unless you want to explain it all.
            Let me just give you one thought piece and you can go from there.

            Jamaal Lascelles is worth around 50 million, give or take…fair enough?
            Now go through the entire squad and tell me what this club would get if all were sold.
            Then add what price you think the club is worth on top of that and let’s see how far out Ashley is with this so called Beetle from BMW.

            Over to you.

        • Big Hairy Man

          It doesn’t matter when they last went up, they should go down, not just at our club but across the board. Today gate receipts are a small percentage of a club’s income. About time they gave something back to the fans.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            Aside from Nufc, football is a business, not a charity.

          • ghostrider

            I agree they should go down. All clubs though, not just us.
            However, seeing as all clubs don’t do it, why should Newcastle?
            He’s given great deals out on season tickets, hasn’t he. He froze them.

          • Sickandtired

            It was more than 1/4 of the clubs revenue in the Championship season.

    • Liam Hogg

      Thought Ashley’s official cheerleader would be all over this

      • ghostrider

        Someone’s got to give him a break from the frenzy.

    • Mirandinha9

      And that’s precisely what a lot of us die hard fans do, we don’t go. We’re not prepared to line your master’s pocket. However, we will be the ones who revel in it the most when he finally leaves the Toon. I will love it, love it, the day Cashley ceases his connection with this club. I am tee-total but, I can assure everyone, for the first time in my life, I’ll get rat arsed the day we see the back of him.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        You are the best fans by not being fans at all? Anyone else would call that being a gloryseeker

  • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

    So the prices are going up 5%, that does not seem too greedy.

    • TheNutJob

      inflation is 2.4%, it`s greed ok

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        Football growth is higher on account of increasing demand.

        • TheNutJob

          go away

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            Another intelligent response.

          • Dillon Tovak

            Jesus 🤦🏻‍♂️ Even if I was racist I’d still think tommy Robinson was a n0b, he’s thick as 💩
            Get a grip, go support Chelsea or something.

          • glassjawsh-got-banned

            the grand, sad irony is that that idiot is the son of Irish immigrants…

          • Rich Lawson

            West Ham or Millwall seem more likely ?

  • Rob Brown

    So are we a big club or not?

    Big clubs charge bigger prices.

    Is it my imagination or are we coming off the back of a season ticket price freeze?

    • TheNutJob

      your imagination thinks we`re a big club, Fatty`s made sure we aren`t

    • Paul Patterson

      Big clubs have ambition.

  • TheFatController

    In fairness, the cost of SD signage around the ground hasn’t changed, so that’s at least one group that aren’t paying more next season.

    Which is a silver lining I think we can all agree? The last thing we needn’t is SD having to pay any more than market rate.

  • Mike

    ha ha he can charge wot he likes you will still fill the library with 40k mugs wearing crp SD shirts

    • Soldier

      make that 52k

    • Toon Arnie

      52,000 Mackem – get it right. As for libraries – people in glass houses….

  • Soldier

    Championship teams are starting to out spend Newcastle that tells you all you need to know about the disaster that is Mike Ashley. his plan, if you can call it that has been fundamentally flawed since day one. his M/O is to get rich by any means possible, low pay for his employees mostly working under horrendous conditions and treat like slaves. i`m ashamed that he owns Newcastle United and disrepute follows the man everywhere he goes.

  • Jay Graham

    Has the 10 year thing finished now?

    • Leicester Mag

      Sadly the 11 year fat blob hasn’t

  • Desree

    If the club was buying players and attempting to compete I am sure they could charge even more.

    • Blackburn1066

      and if pigs could fly.

  • TheNutJob

    cheer up lads, the World cup starts tomorrow
    👍
    forget about the son of Satan and enjoy the footy

    • Wezza147

      Hear hear!

  • Duh

    So, in a nutshell, it depends on how that extra revenue is used.

    • Blackburn1066

      It will be used to line the little fat man’s pocket.

      • Duh

        well no one really knows do they?
        what struck me is that the accounts on the official website tell you nothing.
        I’d like to see the receivables line on the balance sheet, in other words, how much money the club is owed and will lead to future revenue streams. This is key because it determines the cash not yet received for the likes of Sissoko. We simply do not know if Mikey has taken money out – in fact debt went up, suggesting he may have put a bit of money in.
        Profit & loss is also meaningless with out more context, who knows what write downs they made to existing assets (players contracts).

        • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

          We do know, Ashley has not taken money out.

          The debtors / receivables has gone up on account of those players sold but the policy of paying up front seems to have changed.

        • Mal

          According to the 2017 accounts £22 million was due to be received in 2017/18 in respect of player sales and a further £38.7 million in subsequent years.

  • Dingus

    Not relevant. Real fans have already stopped going in protest to the regime. The only people who go to games are those who don’t really care about the well-being of the club. Proponents of Ashley’s lies. They deserve to be ripped off.

    • Liam Hogg

      Glad you’ve took on the mantle of real fan checker, congratulations

      • Dingus

        Thanks 😊

    • Brian Standen

      Define REAL fan – is it someone who sits and watches from home while STILL shopping in sports direct?

      • Dingus

        Who said anything about shopping in Sports Direct? What a strange comment. If you’d like my opinion on shopping at Sports Direct, just ask. RE watching from home: I actually believe Sky Sports ruined football years ago and I’m glad to see their business model is failing. They’ve even been spiteful enough to take that out on customers and charge them huge amounts for their services, and deserve to become extinct. I’d say now it’s so easy to find free streams online, this should be encouraged. It’d be a big step to taking football back to being a community game for local fans. I’d like to note, I rarely watch football at all nowadays, unless it happens to be on where I am, mate’s house/pub etc. I am completely disillusioned with the money involved. For what clubs are playing for these over pampered insta-pillocks, you could build hospitals and bring new life to entire communities of people. It’s ridiculous.

        • Brian Standen

          Well fans like you are not missed! In my eyes real fans follow the team through thick and thin.

          • Dingus

            And short-sighted fans like you sustain the rot at the club. Loyal? Nah. Just thick.

          • Brian Standen

            Wow. A brave keyboard warrior too scared to use his real name while calling others. Are you not late for school?

          • Dingus

            What would using my real name achieve? How would that, in any way, satisfy you? Knowing your name makes no difference to anything I’m saying to you. I’m angry with morons like you who can’t see the wood for the trees and as a result propogate the subterfuge of our football club’s despicable owner. I highlight how and why it makes me angry. And yet the best you can do to retort is accuse me of immaturity? Smacks of desperation.

          • Brian Standen

            For the record your name calling smacks more of desperation than anything else!
            You can’t accept the fact that more than 50000 have an opinion that differs to yours

          • Dingus

            That’s a laugh. My coming to the conclusion you’re thick is based on evidence that you’re not smart enough to see how simple it’d be to get rid of the problem at our club and, therefore, entirely warranted, given it’s so blatant. Unless of course, you’re of the belief there isn’t a problem at our club? It’s a shame you can’t deal with being called thick. But more of a shame you’re so resistant to change in the interests of the greater good. I’d hate to think you’re so one dimensional that you can’t find anything better to do with your life and, subsequently, you can’t let go.

          • Brian Standen

            Pretending to be educated while using long words does not really work
            I actually respect every bodies opinion, whether I agree or disagree , it called healthy debate
            I won’t lower myself to calling you thick, but you are actually one dimensional by not respecting the fact others choose to still go!
            However I tip my hat to you because at least your resolute, another very anti Ashley contributor on here who also slags people off like me actually still goes to every game. I outed him!
            For the record I hate Ashley as much as you but why should he stop me from doing what I like doing?
            Players, owners, managers come and go but fans are for life!
            Please excuse me not replying for a while but unfortunately will be driving for next 5 hours

      That`s pathetic.

      • Dingus

        Tell me about it. The owner literally lies about how much the club has to spend, uses his puppet to stop the manager signing new players, destroys all hope and ambition amongst the fan base, yet still people buy tickets! Pathetic is the right word. A large number of fans have walked, only to be replaced by families, doing the suburban thing, and looking for a fast fix of entertainment (hence the poor atmosphere at SJP.) These people can’t take a step back and see the bigger picture, because they’re not really there to support the club. If the stadium was largely empty, it wouldn’t appear on so many televised games, and Ashley wouldn’t get the SD exposure he wants. And then, he’d LEAVE, given exposure (closely followed by antagonising Geordies) is his reason for owning the club. And maybe then we could go back to having hope, even ambition.

  • Geordiegiants

    And still the sheep flock in!

  • Ian

    And it’s those sheep who pay who have the right to ‘bleat’ on more than the sad wingers who cling onto this club from their armchairs watching the game on Sky anyway.

  • Andy Mac

    So what are you gonna do Matthew ? Have a hissy fit, stamp your feet until you scweam and tell your Mummy ?

    FFS stop this “Fatman does another outrage” shlte and start doing something positive. Stop bleating about the price of Season Tickets and start fighting for the real cost of your dignity.

  • Down Under Mag

    The prices have been frozen for a while now, so let’s be a bit reasonable and recognise it’s not surprising that they would go up eventually…the price hike isn’t the problem, it’s whether this translates into more money for Rafa and improving the squad or whether it just disappears into the ether of the clubs smokescreen finances. Our season ticket prices are still cheaper than most of the so-called “big” clubs that we aspire to be as fans…the only thing (and I understand it) is the owner isn’t using this to push the club forward and try and compete.

    • SuperDesHamilton

      I think people wouldn’t be so fussed about an increase if there was solid investment going into the playing staff as well. As we know it’s all take take take from fatty though

      • Blackburn1066

        This little fat man does not know what investment in players is all about.

  • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

    Fans who had a season ticket in the championship were rewarded with a discount last season. We all knew that discount was for just the one season.

    • nufcslf

      Well what a f**king bargain. You should get 2.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        The point is, the 20% hike is only on those who enjoyed a discount last season. Everyone knew the discount was temporary.

        • nufcslf

          A 20% hike for a club that doesn’t invest from an owner who doesn’t care simply doesn’t add up. Another season of relegation battle is just simply pointless and not worth the effort of taking seriously and supporting.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            But it’s only 20% because the previous year was discounted. For most tickets except the platinum club, the standard price increase is 5% which is above inflation but not excessive for a club looking to crack on after promotion and consolidation.

            I’ve supported the lads for many years and I’m used to a hope to stay up and maybe do well in the cup. Glory seekers who started in the KK years may feel it’s pointless to support the team but that’s not beong a fan iMHO

          • Mofi

            A club looking to ‘crack On’. I only wish it was true. I think you and the black and white dillusional need to take a reality check. Priceless.

        • JonMag

          cnuts like you should be put up against a wall and shot or at the very least have a hot poker shoved up your a$$

            Seen the state of that post, settle down little man. Now this Is a post/poster that should be blocked. All it advocates is violence.imagine if I’d said something along the lines of this? The usual tinpot mob would be like a dog with a bone.

          • Big Hairy Man

            That’s because you support Tommy the racist rabble rouser.

          • Lhc#Freetommyrobinson

            You would never hear or find anything on tommy saying things like that, fact. I’m on here to talk football nufc and my first post yesterday was about season ticket, then 6 / 7 abusive responses. It’s all your lot can ever come back with, very rare a come back is intelligent. Starting work now so won’t be responding, toodleoo.

    Only if you are thick enough to buy one in the first place. Do youself a favour and tell the fat c** t to stick it and stay away.

    Some would have you believe the prices to be an act of generosity but they reflect the downsized club, Ashley said on his arrival there wouldn’t be any more media event signings and he’s been true to his word…. he had said he was going to run the club on a shoestring from day one.

    Ashley’s filled the seats of a small stadium in a large conurbation. Some will tell you its a large stadium….. it isn’t…. its about ten thousand under the capacity it was when I started supporting the club in the 60s, and still under the capacity when United held the World record after the second world war for the biggest attendances in a season…. not bad for the winters we experience here.

    An ambitious United would have needed a bigger stadium not only to compete but to satisfy demand that a competing club in the top five would need, the expanded stadium had largely excluded poorer fans and kids at 52k during the Shearer years.

    Those fans got their chance after two huge walk outs, as Ashley made the world’s largest family sections of any stadium anywhere, and as you can see from the prices for under 18s in the family section they’re practically given away!

    We used to call the mackems for their policy of trying to fill their stadium with free giveaways but the reality here is matchday ticket revenue has plummeted under Ashley in order to fill empty seats.

    Luckily for him it hasn’t been a huge struggle to make the ground look full and for Alan Shearer and the Chronicle to proclaim fantastic and loyal fans….. when they are actually different fans.

    The media pundits such as Shearer have helped Ashley over the years, on the face of it, its almost as if a pacified fanbase would put up with the poor product, but you and I know the disaffection that Ryder and Co ignore!

    The stadium was never big enough for the modern era but it is big enough for a creep like Ashley to use as an advertising hoarding and my god it’s served its purpose, Ashley is a Chelsea fan who cares not a jot about this club and never has, ….. imagine that he’d bought Chelsea and done this to them!….

    ….he’d never have done it now would he, nor could he without a Ryder to pour oil on troubled waters?

    Onward into the next decade!

  • Sickandtired

    So, in real terms, it’s a 10% increase on the 15/16 season prices? No more than 2.5 million then – likely less as match-day includes other sales.

    If fatty had stuck to his words then SD would be paying for the advertising now – and that surely would have produced more revenue than this increase.

    Instead, the punters cough up and SD shareholders continue their free ride.

  • MadMag83

    Don’t worry people. Prices will be reduced when we’re relegated a third time under the fat penny pincher.

    • Blackburn1066

      We could take the Sunderland drop if Raffa goes,
