23k for division 3 fixture which was a shite 0-0 was a good crowd. 
 

Cheap tickets do work aw we doubled the crowd. Struggling to see how that’s a fail.

Cheap tickets work when the club are doing well or something to play for like brum other year

I wouldn’t argue that but the offer worked.

Yeah it did, put that into a nothing game like Brentford year or so back and it makes no difference

Cold blooded picking Brentford of all teams to pick. Next you’ll be saying Doncaster.

You are probably right and that’s why the club doesn’t pick random little riding games to push the promotion.

poor? come on. you have some saying cheap tickets dont work but 23k for a game v Chesterfield (!) is a good effort given the competition around here i reckon .Pity team didnt turn up! same as that Grimsby game (25k?) shows can work if do it at say half term like the Grimsby game iirc. 

Anyway if Evatt can get us going reckon wed get 20k on at end if season with bit imagination from club.  Bollocks to Bolton At Home day tho :lol:

Exactly! 

It shows it does work, at the right time... & there in lies the problem. The marketing of such offers are rarely planned correctly & proactively planned in advance to work. Unfortunately they are normally planned reactively & incorrectly, so the majority of the time it fails.

As soon as the fixture list come out, they should be looking at the opportunities to encourage supporters to come back or come more often with good enticements. 

Sometimes it just feels like it's a short term reactive late minute decision because crowds are dwindling, which never works due to the obvious reason of dwindling of support

It’s because it’s true. Surely a plastic Yorkshire man like thee can see this. 
 

most lapsed fans don’t go because there is more things to do in modern society and more football available on tv

Typical scouser, always whinging & coming up with excuses & not solutions! 😉 pity, pity, pity 😭

Isn’t there a limit on the number of offers a club can do? 

I wouldn't think so, but they would have to keep season ticket holders in mind, and make sure that the ST is still good value, if a club did loads of offers it would have an impact on future ST sales.

I think the bigger problem is that it’s so rare that things are going right on the field 🤣

There’s a self-restriction applies so that season tickets aren’t undercut. The league limit was for the ‘local promotion’ farce where you could charge home fans a fiver and away fans £35 for four games a season. Think it’s been scrapped now or at least hugely scaled back.

Last Championship season the University was knocking out the near mythical £10 'community' tickets...Come Friday afternoon they'd still have a big wedge left.

Only sold out when a team with a sizeable group of supporters who happened to be studying here took their chances...'chances' probably an overstatement - I think everyone was just so stupified by Parky's anti-football to even be arsed by any incursion.

Last 20 years of Burnden might be a stretch as presumably we had a few big ones in the late 70s? Once Normid was built then the capacity was much reduced anyway. Certainly had a few sell outs from the Rioch era though.

The Chesterfield crowd (and Grimsby to a certain extent) was cheap tickets coinciding with the team doing well. It’s been shown on so many occasions that unless you can get the latter right then there’s only a finite number of people wanting to turn up, regardless of the price. 

Yeah 20 years was a round figure, TBH I couldnt quite remember when we left, was it about 98.  Anyone no 20k+ at Burnden since 1981.  Yes capacity reduced from about 86 but the fact remains there was no home attendance of more than 20k even under Rioch apart from the Charlton Championship/Burnden farewell game.  The other sell outs included a few thousand away fans, maybe 17k of us.  So getting 23k v Chesterfield in Div 1 with no away fans was a huge crowd.  As you say because we were in a great run of form at the time, it would have been much less if it had been in one of Parky's losing runs.

Burnden Parks capacity was less than 23k anyway for many years up to leaving for many games we could have sold many more than the 21k or whatever it was

Blackburn had similar year after us in league 1 avg 12/13k and got 27k against oxford on an offer 

That was last game of season, for a promotion party, they were going for the championship that day.  Not really a fair comparison, if we'd charged £5 v Posh of course we'd have sold out.

I see Ryan Lowe has commented for the first time on being linked with our managerial vacancy, he was speaking in a virtual fans forum yesterday afternoon

https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/sport/football/plymouth-argyle-boss-ryan-lowe-4271065

 

It’s funny how he speaks out only when he knows he hasn’t got the job.

Really? 2 promotions from 2 attempts by Lowe.

You can’t get better than that.

You are right you cannot get better and fans would expect an Instant promotion If Lowe had come on board

I would happily not go up next season and put together a squad that when it is eventually promoted to League one is capable with a few additions of challenging to get into the championship

You could even argue that Lowe achieved promotion twice from the same league with essentially the same team - he was able to take a core of 5 players with him -  players that achieved promotion at Bury and remodel the Plymouth team on that basis - bit of a one off situation given Burys circumstances  

Might be different when that's not an option and you cannot buy in players - and dont forget  this is BWFC we are talking about

We need to go up this season if we are to keep  the likes of Politic and Darcy and grow as a team.....Next season the embargo is lifted and with that expectations will grow. I expect us to get promotion two seasons running and be back in the championship in two years time.

We will only get there if FV are bold and get this appointment right and back him for the following season.

The new manager will have a crop of good young players and the pick of players who are willing to drop to lge 2.
