    Sadly, not Leeds, but my other mistress, Partick Thistle ....

    An initiative to attract the fans of the future ...

    Free Season Tickets for 12-16 year olds, plus loads more.

    Why can't Leeds come up with something like this? (plenty space needs filling, after all!). I don't see many kids at ER these days.

    Would love to know how many 12-16 year old season ticket holders we have now.

    In other words, how much revenue would the club be giving up as a starting point?

    The lower the amount, the less risky the initiative.

    Terrific idea. God knows we now have 20k empty seats at most home games. We've probably lost at least one generation of supporter over last ten years so that needs to be put right

    I want to have your children, Billy!

    Seriously though, we need the next generation. There isn't one at the moment. I personally have been an advocate of making the South Stand 'wedge' free to schoolkids. Every game, from now on. Different kids each game so we infect at least some of them with 'big occasion' excitement. Tall order with this team, but we've got to try something!
