If the Three Amigo’s had kickstarted the Fund with say £5/10k each then folk would’ve went ‘fair play’ and maybe put aside differences in the current climate.

Anything now would be shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted...


Maybe this should be put to CUOSC? Things need a starting point. I am giving an idea for fans and owners to have a starting point. I would like to see them make a contribution.

Interesting point today

Last week we were told all the staff have been furloughed well if that's true why is Andy Hall still writing articles and therefore working and if he isn't furloughed Then why isn't he ?

It’s never going to work when you have a billionaire and a local millionaire running the show-and showing utter contempt for anyone with money and a brain who wants to help.Its a bit like Branson or Green asking for a loan from the government;it’s never going to happen as we remember their actions in times gone by.

They dug the hole, the Trust through inaction put cement around it and now they don’t even have a shovel.

Football in the lower leagues is going through a big shakeout-I think the best thing for the Trust is gather cash, wait for the tree shake, then move on it with other investors-giving the current lot any money now would be insane and like throwing a fag up Botchergate

I donated £30 to Workington as I thought they were a worthy cause, equivalent 3 games...as have many others... their fund is now over £16k ..maybe more, haven't looked for a while.
I gave to the Junior Joachim !!!!! Purchase ....total waste by the club, but not their fault, earmarked by one Keirh Curle......as a shirt sponsor currently and over the last 5 years...not gonna bother with this initiative. We have Cup money and player sales money yo fall back on.

Maybe if CUSG or the club had some foresight, they could ask this years season ticket holders if they want any refunds due to them to go into the pot. May not give them any hard cash, but will plug a future cash outgoing.
Instead, they seem to be burying their heads in the sand over the liability. Some clubs are already paying out (where folk want it)

That's a good suggestion CW,could be a decent amount. But to be honest I personally don't trust them. If they and the fans involved agreed to it that money should be ring-fenced to make sure it's not used to clear down debt

CCU - I did say it would not raise any hard cash.
Have any season ticket holders been contacted about refunds out of interest yet?Me and our eldest debating what we should do with ours at Leeds.

Don't the club have to ring fence ST money in a separate account? I thought that was some sort of legal requirement and, if so, it would still be a chunk of new cash.

Think they're probably trying to figure out what happens with STs next season at the min as that maybe has a bearing on what they do with the remainder of this.

You might be right, but if that was the case, they would not need to furlough players as they would still have five games income to come. Fairly sure they have said they have nothing coming in bar the EFL advance from next seasons money.
Maybe they are supposed to do what you say, but does anyone think they have?
Not sure what the return of next season's season tickets has to do with this seasons money.
To be honest, with ours, I would like the option to have the money returned but only when the season starts again. Eldest feels different, but we are bankrolled by a multi millionare. Oh, wait ......

I mean, who the [censored] knows? Our owners aren't exactly known for being open.

When I say about next seasons STs, I would of thought they'd try and tie in the remainder of this seasons money into cheaper STs for next (at least, if I where in their shoes, that's what i'd try and do).

Personally, I don't care about having the money back but it does stick in the craw that the club haven't even acknowledged the fact.

From flicking through Twitter, only a couple of Clubs (Crawley were one) have announced what their plans for the unfinished Season were with regards to Ticketing.

Could be most are waiting for the EFL to ratify the Season being over officially before making announcements?

Wouldn't have a problem with that in the slightest CCU if they actually acknowledged it and explained the reasoning.

We got our notifications from Leeds yesterday.
Away tickets first, then home match day tickets, then this seasons season tickets (options to be given). Timescale for all 3 phases four weeks.

No one should agree to give up their right to a refund of what's owed to them until they see the price of next years season tickets and more importantly the terms on which those tickets will be sold.

Tranmere announced the cost of next seasons ST, Gave these years ST holders the choice of donating the money outstanding to the club [ some of which would be used to fund some of their community activities ] or putting it towards next seasons purchase-including increasing its value by 15% if they did. They also announced that next years season ticket wouldn't start until the first game that season ticket holders could attend.

Then they put the new tickets on sale

Sold over 1200 season Tickets in the first seven days of sale.

And over 90% of the people owed money from this year donated to the club and didn't use it towards the new ST.s

Amazing what happens when you have good owners that the fans can trust and feel they can work with for the good of their club.

Then we have Jenkins Clibbins and co who simply haven't got a clue or even the nous to say " Hey Tranmere have cracked it lets give that a go" and just sit on their arses hoping that its just all been a ad dream since the day they fell out with Curly Keith.

The first time they'll have heard about Tranmere's offer is when they read your post NS.

That's how proactive they are.
