196,150 signed petition.  Its not going to be top of the agenda this month but they almost always debate a petition that has over 100k signatures, the ground rules are here for anyone interested.

I'd still expect way higher numbers than that, its huge for a petition that came from nowhere but in terms of numbers who go to stadiums every weekend it's not that big really. I wonder how much people really do want to go back just now, or whether it's just a storm in a social media teacup.

Glad it's going to be debated again though, but I agree with you it's not going to be on an agenda for a little while yet with the way things are going.

Genuinely don't know the answer to this - have other clubs gone down the flogging STs like we have?

In our case, while people obviously want to get back in and it might help the team, if we allowed all 8k ST holders in but with severe restrictions on concourse activity etc, would we actually make any significant money? Corporate?

I think more would have signed if it had been before the last week or 2, but the momentum has stalled with the situation deteriorating.  I still think people are desperate to return in the same ways people want to go to pubs and shops and visit people - with sensible guidelines and social distancing measures.  Its the fact that we cant even have 10% capacity which is most annoying, while everywhere else can (except the tier 3's).  I personally would want fans to return just for the spectacle of watching/listening to games even if I wasnt allowed in myself.  Games just arent real at the moment.

If we dont see any games this season, as seems likely, the financial effect on the club will be felt when next year's go on sale, they wont be able to sell at full price to those renewing.  So even if we only saw half the games it puts FV in a stronger bargaining position than if we've seen none at all.  Then there are the minority that will be demanding full refunds especially if they dont bother with i-follow.

Its infuriating to see the photos from the Palladium the other day, I saw it and thought it was a fake at first. The place looked packed. And yet you still can't spread 1,000 people out across an open stand? It's bullshit.

Watched Bosnia v Northern Ireland at weekend it had a small crowd in and it made a world of difference just as a viewing experience. The sound took some getting used to actually, it has been a while.

They dont give a fuck in eastern europe, think it's full in Serbian games as well! 🤣

Saw this earlier from the cake tin in NZ at weekend (I dont follow Durham or whoever posted the photo from the rugby, btw)

Fair play for trying to generate some money

but seriously who the fuck is going to go 

Look who went to Forest Green Rovers for a game not involving Bolton and then ask yourself if you even needed to ask.

One of them is that sweaty fucker who always wears the black away shirt, looks half like meat loaf and half like Ross Noble.
