Southampton Season Ticket Shocker

The official site has given out the information that we have all waited so impatiently for. Trouble with that is the extra information that comes with it.

Most of the season ticket prices remain the same but payment has to be made up front. We are told that there will be no instalment plan for the poorer members of the fanbase. The reason given by David Luker is that of rising administration costs.

I find this terribly hard to swallow. Last season I had two st's and this season had planned to make it three. The third admittedly would have been at no cost as my boy is only 6 but he would have grown to love our club as I do.

For me to have that sort of money, I would have to steal it or borrow it from somewhere else. To borrow it means paying interest so I shall probably join a few more in becoming ex season ticket holders.

This leaves me in a quandary as I loved taking the kids but now it will be unable to as it will prove to be far too expensive.

The clubsite says that season ticket sales are on sale from today. Us existing ticket holders have until the end of the month to buy our seats if we want to keep the same ones.

The club obviously thinks that this is the way forward but people on benefits and pensions like me will now just have to listen to the poor radio commentaries.

If I can make it to a game it will probably be only on a Saturday, and then only rarely. Unfortunately I now have to concede defeat in my attending our home games regularly.

On the other hand though, I guess it means that I will be able to spend more match time on here. Small benefit I know, but I have enjoyed the odd session on here for away games.

Main problem with that is the poor reception of Radio Solent on the Saints Player. Living where I do there is no reception through the normal radio service.

Now more than ever I hope that the club can sort out the logistics with regard our broadcasts.

As you may have gathered I am not overly impressed by this move by the club. It does feel as though I am now a part of the great unwanted mass.

Would be nice if we were allowed to see our team play without some of the bloody rules being changed as and when it suits those at the helm. I don't like this idea much either.

I am lucky as I can pay but I know a few that have been badly affected by this decision. It would not have been that difficult to add a charge for the credit would it?

I will probably have to go without now as I don't have the readies for at least two months.
