    PB got it spot on IMO.
    Agreed, the man seems to get a lot of the big calls right in my eyes. He also appears to learn from previous mistakes, we are very lucky to have him I feel.

      Dont know if we made or lost money on the day but 2 of the 8 people i went with who hardly ever go , will be season ticket holders next season , might not sound much on its own but i would wager these 2 will not be the only newbies next season buying a season ticket .

      Probably would'nt of gone myself if it was more than £20 a ticket so in the long run the club got it right imo .
      RIP MUM XX

      I think you find I do have a clue. I responded by listing all the revenue streams that would MAKE THE CLUB MONEY!! Even you have admitted that the programmes will make a profit. I never said it he club would make huge amounts but it will be a profitable afternoon not a loss making occasion.
      So you know all the operating costs then? Electricity, overheads, part time staff, appearance fees etc? Didn't think so, you can't say for sure we made a profit.

      When have I claimed I knew all the operating costs?The players contracts will include FA cup games so appearance fees won't be a issue . Regarding bonus payments I'm sure the club have factored in bonus fees payments based on a realistic attendance for a third round tie. Seeing that you can't guarantee a home draw it has to be based on the prize money for that round. I would of thought the this comes more into play if you go deeper into the tournament. I'm sure the electric bill can be paid out of a crowd of 20,000 and it's been mentioned costs are taken out before the the gate receipts are split. All other revenue streams we collect 100% of the profit .
      So a question to you how can you know a loss will be made on this one game?

      1) I didn't say we made a loss, I was responding to you calling another poster clueless when your post had no more fact than his.
      2) Appearance fees wouldn't have been paid if we didn't play the FA cup game. Appearance fees are only paid when a player makes an appearance. Who'd have thought?
      3) You listed all revenue streams, but without knowing overheads you couldn't possibly know if we made a profit or not.
      4) We don't collect 100% of profit from all revenue streams, this is a bit of a silly statement.

      This is boring now, the fact is we probably made a slight profit, but we can't know for sure so it's probably not clever to call other posters clueless when you yourself haven't presented much of an understanding to the situation either.

      Appologies for saying you said we made a loss but I responded to a blank statement saying we made a loss with no explanation, that to me seems clueless. I listed the areas we would make money but realise costs are involved and I can't see Reading taking a cut of the pies sold for example.
      Best we agree to differ. Cause you are 100% right it's getting very boring lol
