Over 2 years that isn't a massive amount. And some of that includes consultancy for Lee's work as an agent - if we didn't pay it him we'd likely pay it somewhere else.

All relative isn't it. Gartside paid himself nearly £600K a year as a direct salary. And one can question whether he was earning that when you see where we ended up. 

I suspect PG will have left us in a worse state than KA will - but proof is in the pudding and all that. 

to be fair, that's over 16 months up to June 30 2017 - we haven't seen the accounts for 2017/2018 yet, so he may have took the same again, or less, or more

wait and see I guess

appreciate if the benchmark is PG's reign at least we know now that we're not a gravy train for players and 3rd parties anymore

It seems to me to be actively inviting conspiracy theories if you keep claiming to have never taken a wage from the club, while money is going out of the to your company/family.

I don't think anyone would deny him a wage, some would see it as value for money if we are paying him 500k a year. But I think it's fair to question wether Ken is being totally up front about the money he personally is earning from the club.

He said his companies took out some fees. He's not hiding that.

Cheap tickets, I'd say

I agree, I've no issue with it, it's the vocal idiots on social media.

I accept that by getting a whole season of discounted admission that I'm highly likely not to be offered any other concessions and I can live with that,

Fuck me, what is wrong with Bolton fans

 

 

Simple maths, isn’t it? I really do despair sometimes. As a season ticket holder, we’re getting as much as a 40-50% discount on some games, so one or two cheap games really isn’t going to make a dent in that. 

I do still feel there needs to be some sort of package for non-ST for the December games though.

We've already had our concessions, 23 games for £14 each. The paupers only get 1 or 2 a season!!

Think our ceiling has been hit in terms of home fans regardless of price 

only a surge to the top of the league would make an increase 

well done ken though for addressing the issue, if I was to be critical it would be choice if game as Swansea wouldn’t bring in the crowds anyway 

Aye, I reckon if he wanted to make an impact on the  crowd as opposed to the coffers it should be the Wigan game 

The right price will see a more than average crowd on for that fixture, a good performance and result might persuade floaters to come back over Christmas

Totally agree, bit short now but isn’t forest half term that could have been some kind of offer

Christmas games, not so sure

6 games Inc Christmas, I'm fine with

Was thinking in terms of Wigan, Leeds and Boxing Day all being Cat A games within a few weeks of each other. Dropping the prices for one game in particular of the three will hit us in the pocket with away fans for the first two and home fans for Boxing Day, but offering a good deal for coming to two or three of them might mean walk up home fans not having to choose between games and maybe be enough to shift a few half season tickets for the games that follow.

it's midweek on the red button, I doubt any offer would make that much of an impact

Yes midweek red button and the fact its a cunt to travel in and around the macron in rush hour means its not appealing

Rush hour? Kick off is at 8. 

 

Yep. Manc city centre is an arse til 7. If the Manc clubs are playing it’s horrific.

and can’t get the train unless you leave before the end of the game to get one back to where I live

 

so yeah - rush hour and a right hassle
