No, what you need to do is start a thread on NSC campaigning for an old crocks section (similar to the singing section), and after 50 odd pages write a long email demanding that either an exclusive old crocks lift is installed or stair lifts, which if you can combine with a further demand to allow the old crocks to take flasks with them, then you can sit back and read the 10,000 word reply from PB.

Sounds like a plan! :lolol:

If you only renew your season ticket when you think we will still be in the PL next season then with respect you are not a true fan.

A true fan surely supports a team whatever league they are in. If not go follow Man City or Liverpool if you only want to be associated with a global brand team .

Saying this I think we will just stay up, but it will be less than 2 points, either by a point or possibly even on goal difference. Can see 2 or 3 teams finishing on 38 points this season.


Where were these true fans when we played our home games at Gillingham ?

Propper, Bernardo, Maupay, Trossard, Dunk, Mooy, Ryan - I suspect would all want top flight football and insist on leaving. Short careers and all that, plus some would need to play at a higher level to further their international ambitions/sharpness.

I don’t disagree with you at all, but I do wonder if Maupay, Trossard and Bernardo have done enough to tempt genuine offers from other top flight clubs

Maupay - he’s scored 7 PL goals which is far better than some PL jokers. He’s getting a hard time on NSC lately, but I would imagine that promoted clubs and the usual relegation candidates would be interested. Would he want another Championship slog, when another PL club will give him another amazing contract?

Trossard - wants to play for Belgium and would 46 highly physical matches be his thing?

Bernardo - imho he’s a quality specialist LB. We’ve seen so little of him due to injuries, plus GP favours CB’s playing every defensive role.

Doesn’t Bernardo play on the left??

I’m definitely renewing, if we go down I’d still renew. As above, I missed a few years as a season ticket holder , due to priorities, now, with my personal circumstances much improved, and finances infinitely better, it is my first choice leisure time expenditure.
To be honest, it’s my only leisure time expenditure :smile:

So far 9. Not sure how that converts across the whole ST list, but it doesn't make look like paying to go on the waiting list a quick join.

The mere thought of not renewing hadn't even begun to speculate about the merest possibility of crossing my mind.

Bit wordy, but I concur!!!

I never thought, genuinely, I would see us in the Premier League, so the last three years have been a bonus.

The division we're in is an irrelevance to me, in as much as I'd go if we were Premier League or Conference,

I had to look that up as it was nagging me that I recognized that reference. Love that series and in honour of the reminder I am going to rewatch the dvd.
Definitely renewing although that decision is helped by our intention to move South again at some point soon. The long drive from Norfolk can seem even longer after watching recent performances.

I’m renewing for another season but my son who has come with me for the last 10 years is finishing uni and entering the world of work next year.

I’ve just about managed to justify it for the last 5 years when’s he’s been away studying as he’s always come back for summer half terms etc and I’ve got mates to fill the gaps.

But if he moves permanently away, which is very likely, I’ll cancel.

I’ll be sad. End of an era.....

I don't understand the question. I'm an Albion fan so until I can't afford it or cannot physically go, I'll be renewing my season ticket. Albion till I die. Not as if I can just switch it off or support some other team.

I am renewing regardless of the division we find ourselves but just for one more season. I simply haven't enjoyed the match day experience as much this year.

VAR is the main reason (loss of spontaneity for those in the stadium). VAR is an enhancement for a TV audience but takes away that few seconds of utter euphoria when your team scores, but you just have to wait those two minutes whilst they check it.

Would indeed be good if the club could clarify their stance on how to officially deal with an ageing WSU demographic, or indeed somebody who just got zapped by, say, a bout of gout or a sudden knee op. Helluva hike up them stairs at the best of times. Entirely reasonable IMHO that folks should be able to apply to the club for special dispensation to use the available lift, in exactly the same way as official dispensation is given to keeping tops on water bottles or be fast-tracked onto the train platform post-match


As a STH that did have a sudden knee op a few seasons ago I can tell you that supporter services were happy to move my seats to limited mobility seats elsewhere in the stadium that made it easy for me to get to with the crutches I was using. Didn't have to pay a penny either. My seat was then resold for matches I was elsewhere. Great service from the club and very easy and straightforward to arrange.

Lucky you. My experience in November was pretty much the opposite. My wife needed support due to a foot operation. Supporter services had no solution and didn't even return my initial phone call as promised. It seems they have nothing between able bodied supporter and full blue badge.

That's poor. With me we were in the Championship still so I guess there was plenty of space to move me too but presumably these days there is no spare capacity?
