There's a setup fee which I assume is how the finance people make their money (About £25 or so).
Lets be honest, the majority of people on here a sensible adults who are capable of making their own decisions. I got mine and the missus ST as soon as they became available. None of this is Robins or the players fault, why should they be punished.
In my opinion this is nothing but a positive. The pitch is 1 million times better which suits our style of play. How many times did Robins say last season that the players always wanted an extra touch because they were not 100% comfortable with the pitch. This has now gone.
Also i think a reduced number of supporters will actually be more beneficial. The only people in attendance/ST's are the people that have had to make a conscious effort to go and support the team. It removes entirely the "Walk Ups" who go out of habit as its a short walk to the Ricoh.
In my opinion this removes any negative or poisonous atmosphere. (The SISU out shite)
I am looking forward to it and cant help but think it is going to be a fantastic season on the pitch.
There's an admin fee but it gets added on to the first payment which is the first day of the month at least one month after the setting up of the agreement. If you got your ticket today you'd start paying beginning of August (possibly 1st July).
Nothing to pay at all today.
You've got plenty of friends in your new block.
I won't be purchasing a season ticket this season (unless we move back to the Ricoh mid season) as I won't be able to get to mid week games, however my mate (Blues fan) works on the turnstiles and is going to let me in for free.
Is this post for real?
Wrong on several levels.
A good start to the season and I think quite a lot will change their mind and start going to St.Andrews.
Perfect, away from end of this month so cash is limited until end of June. Thank you for the info
Although I accept this time is completely different to Sixfields, I can't agree with what you have posted.
I may be reading into your post too much and you may just be looking on the brightside, but the club being out of the City (again) is in no way a positive.
A shit pitch and a few "boo boys" is no justification for sanctioning a move for a club that is 136 years old from it's City. Slate Wasps and CCC/SISU, fair enough, but not this sort of stuff.
I agree with getting behind MR and the players/staff though.
Once the season ticket sales are done it would be nice if they announced there are a load of free tickets available to the first game for people who aren’t sure just to try to tempt a few in that are on the edge, once they go and hopefully get a win the momentum will start.
And not the sort of thing you tell people on a football forum.
I can circulate a photo of him if you want, because I know what he looks like.
I’ve got my season ticket,so has my son and the friend we go with. The only positive about being at St Andrews is that the club is still alive. I can’t think of any other positive for being there and want a return to Coventry as soon as possible.
I can't see how having to leave your home city and going to a groundshare 20 miles away, resulting in a massive reduction in the amount of City fans watching the club, can be considered as nothing but a positive.
Should only be considered as a positive in terms of it ensuring our survival.
Agree with most of this but i think the pitch is a positive also, i can't wait to see us play on a pitch with grass that hasn't been rucked to death. And if they can mow a few snazzy patterns into it even better.
Reduced number of supporters being a benefit ? Sorry but that's just completely wrong.
I don't think any of our games will be on a Saturday i'm afraid it will be Friday nights or Sunday. When Blues are home then Villa are away so no way are WMP going to allow us to play on a Saturday when Villa are home.
I can't see us selling 2K
Premier League Villa who will get switched round for the TV a fair bit?
I saw somewhere it was around 1,100 sold so far...
Fixture list comes out way before TV games are scheduled.
I've just been looking where to buy mine and it doesn't look like many sold at all. I'm not counting dots either :-)
If so that is a lot healthier than I thought.
We played Blues at St Andrews on a day Villa were at home a few years ago. There are often a number of fixtures taking place in the Birmingham area on the same day. When we played Walsall a few years back, Man City were playing at Albion and Blues were at home and there were fans of different clubs everywhere. They are used to policing simultaneous fixtures. I could be wrong, but think they'll be plenty of Saturday games.
There will be a load of police available to bus over that aren't doing anything in Cov too.
We played Walsall away last year when villa played West Brom - granted villa v Albion was moved to Friday for tv - but it was still scheduled the same day
No way have Blues or Villa ever been at home on the same day. Albion and Walsall are also miles away so not relevant.
It is relevant, because fans of the clubs playing Albion will often go into Birmingham City Centre, as Man City fans did on that day.
Yes, Villa played Blackburn at home on the same day as we played at Blues when we took 5000. It was FA Cup weekend, and the Villa game was moved forward to a 1pm kick-off, but I remember going into a pub early and there were Villa, Blues and Cov supporters all drinking at the same time.
Just to prove I'm not going mad: BBC Sport - Football - Aston Villa 3-1 Blackburn
Not considering opposition fans are likely to arrive in Birmingham City centre when playing West Brom or Walsall - like I said we’ve brought thousands to Walsall and West Brom whilst Villa were at home.
if We were regularly going to bring 20k then maybe, but let’s face it we’re going to be hovering around 8k if we’re having a reasonable season.
On top of this, as much as our fans will hate hearing this, Villa fans don’t really give that much of a shit about us
Is that pointing towards the Ricoh, or the council house?
Villa will surely have a lot of Sunday matches due to Sky.
This is all nonsense - what the police will want to avoid is fans converging on New Street at the same time - we will have the same home rotation as Villa
Villa won't have many Saturday 3pm kick offs anyway.
Premier League live games are Saturday lunch time, Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon and Monday night.
I bet they won't have many at 3pm on a Saturday.
So we will be on their home rotation
