    I know crowds at the KC have been down this season and i think most of us agree its mainly down to prices/lack of money ect. One thing i would like to know is for what reason is the cost of the west stand more than the East, i mean the South stand as a End view of the Pitch but the other two are both side views. On a match day the one stand that struggles to fill is the higher West. Anyway its just a thought, i sit in the East stand and good luck to the lads tomorrow night i think there going to need a lot of encouragement from everyone <ok> no matter were you are in the ground.

    I disagree, look at the games where we've had promotions on the tickets and the average for those isn't much higher than the rest of the games. There are clearly some fans struggling financially, but there's a hell of a lot more who now we're not a PL side are finding the cost is a convenient excuse. It's funny how the money has suddenly reappeared to buy season tickets now it looks like we're going up again.

    Prices don't help i think for an A grade game £28 in the East is enough, then it goes to £30 in the West, Regarding the offers we have had this season you are right Ricardo they have not gone well but why is this? do fans get out the habit of going and do other things on match days? Lets not forget we had higher crowds in the lower leagues. Hopefully Premier league football will come and remain for a long time and get more fans back at the KC permanently.

    You don't pay extra for the silent carriage. Ooh just realised, I'm in first class tomorrow, free food all the way.

    It is just life . Leeds crowds have dropped dramatically. But if they went back up to the PL they would sell out every week. Meanwhile they will be paying a lot more to watch Championship football than we are to watch Premier league football, as will a lot of other supporters of Championship teams. Our prices compare favourably with a lot of Championship teams and will be a bargain by comparison when we go up.

    The reason the prices are different in each stand, is because the closer you are to me, the more the club charge.

    I might have made that up, but it's as good a reason as any. <ok>
