Depends if it’s got any guests or not 

I stay at the Hilton Wembley a lot, similar hotel to The Whites given it relies on Business and Sports predominantly (all be it to different levels) 

I was chatting to an employee at Hilton Wembley and they have been getting around 10% occupancy vs the usual 90%. Should imagine that The Whites Hotel is seeing similar levels - not good when Furlough ends next month

And by cheap, they are literally half of the price of ours so the bottom line is likely to be vastly different.

Would Bolton’s season tickets at £175 for side stands and £150 for behind goals sell twice as many?
 

It is often a topic on here that selling cheap and getting folk in to spend on the concessions may be a money maker but obviously not this season.

I think it would be close. It would be good to see but also a big gamble if it didn’t work.

Not sure selling them all at that price would be good as you don't know how many you would sell. Could do it on a sliding scale as in when they sell 9 thousand for example everyone gets a % back and all season tickets are then sold at that price, then when they hit another target you get more back. So the more you sell the cheaper they become.

Absolutely no way whatsoever. Wasn't often we hit 16,000 in the Premier League so not chance we'd be hitting that in League Two, cheap or not.

We hit 42000 in the old division two

42k crowds aren’t the same as 42k STs

That’d be interesting.

Of course not I am saying we could attract a crowd of 42000 in the old second division (although it's more likely only 30000 were from Bolton) Sunderland must have bought 10000

OK sorry you are talking about season ticket holders fair enough, all I am saying is if Bolton are winning the support is there

You can't compare 1976 to  the present day. It's gone. In between that we've had sub 4k crowds. In the league we are in now.

I don't doubt in our lowest and losing games fickle fans fuck off what I am saying is if we are winning the support is there, we have sold over 8000 season tickets when we can't even get in the ground, we sold over 2500 Ifollow passes for last weeks game I am not saying we can compete with Manchester United I am just saying for a club our size the support is there

Why can't I? 

You can but clearly it's a ridiculous comparison. I can spend all evening reeling off why. We got in to Europe and on TWO occasions there was barely over 10,000 on.

Look at the crowds in 96/97 when we FUCKING WALKED THE LEAGUE (and Burnden Park was always packed to the rafters), regularly around the 15K mark. We won promotion against QPR in front of under 20,000. FACTS.

OK we are not Manchester United but what I am saying is give Bolton fans winning football and they will turn up, last time we won promotion from division 4 I went to Wrexham away and a local Policeman said "only time I have seen bigger away support is when England played Wales here" so Carlos try not to be so negative
