    Reducing S/T for next season Stoke freeze theirs for 10th season running meanwhile we just take the mick out of our own supporters!!

    That's not entirely fair since every ST holder has the chance to renew now at same rate as this year.
    Quite who they think is going to buy at a 30% increase I have no idea!

    What will walk-up prices be next season if STs are going up by 30%? If a Loft Upper ticket is around £40 for second tier football we'll struggle to get anyone in the ground but renewing ST-holders.

    Looking around were I sit there seems to be quite a few senior citizens, who might have some difficulty in renewing their tickets in March rather than in previous years June some three months earlier.

    Being an old fart certainly has its benefits!

    This March thing is a stupid idea and once again the club are cocking things up. I am surprised we haven't had our conspiracists out in force saying TF wants the money in quick before he bails out?
    For the first time in many years i have not enjoyed going to watch QPR and for the first time in many years i am not sure i will renew. The product is shocking and it will be worse next season.

    If we sold 12,000 STs at an average of £600 each (too high I think) that's £7.2m. It's not enough money for Tony to bail on. It's only enough to pay the wages for a few months, if we are very lucky.

    That seems like a high estimate. How many STs do we have now? 10,000 or so I'd guess and that will only drop.

    Which proves my point even more. The gate money is pathetic, even though we are an expensive club to watch. There would be little to lose and much to gain in taking it down to German prices.

    I was asked within a few minutes with Lee Hoos if I was a season ticket holder so it's a hot topic
    I quote again I told him directly he hasn't got a product yet so why would anyone want to buy?
    You have to guarantee a show now for QPR supporters especially after Billy Smart has sold fans a big dream
    The old gits like me will die soon and the next generation is fickle as **** so that takes marketing skills
    They seemed to listen so I look forward to what I was told as the big push but I am seriously worried
