    Great incentive to get bums on seats.

    I bet some will still moan re. price and transport costs.

    Spot on from the club. I’m sure the Facebook idiots will find something to moan about! They’re definitely trying to get people there.

    Good idea. Be a lot of people who haven't renewed but have heard good things about the ease of getting there, the atmosphere etc and will be curious to check it out.

    Think the social media team is about 2 weeks away from calling someone a twat.

    Great idea, can't fault the club for trying. Might get a few more in albeit probably for just those next two games.

    Yes but we aren’t at the soulless wind swept Ricoh with a shit pitch and the Wasps signs rammed down your throat.
    It’s ok tho as all the moaning cants about St Andrews will turn up every week if we return week in week out and we will have a 20 000 average home gate from now on.
    Makes me laugh.
    Fair play Ccfc.

    I haven’t studied the fixture list but wouldn’t it be great to pick a “home” game and start a “pack the stadium” campaign. When do we play Sunderland?

    Ah man, I've ditched Facebook, otherwise I'd be all over that thread firing out a few c bombs. That has wound me up more than it probably should have.

    I came close to doing just that to the dicks on there. But thought better of it.

    The pricks on Facebook are the most vocal and cuntish of all our fans.

    Gives them a chance to assess travel and for some an unfamiliar ground. It is good the club are doing this...but come on why wouldn't they? It is hardly a stroke of genius.

    Tell them on Facebook, you'll be accused of trying to kill the club.

    I know that there are some real cretins on there, but I didn't think that they went that far!

    Like people have said, its a new experience and having been its a piece of cake to get to, good pitch and a siege mentality with everyone cheering the lads on. I do hope people give it a go as they will be pleasantly surprised.

    good idea but should open it for everyone

    best case scenario loads of new ST holders

    Worst case scenario, a slightly bigger crowd for next 2 games
