View Full Version : Countdown to Brighton 'Groupon' Deals

Oh, how they mocked this particular one of many Palace initiatives to drum up interest in a league where big crowds tend to be scarce (without the assistance of shiny new stadiums and such).

However, when their fans are finally able to completely rid themselves of their STs and DDs, and be officially (instead of unofficially) absent from the game, how long will it be before Barber's marketing team bite the bullet and get those Groupon deals up and running?

Throw in a Brighton city centre riot, and NSC might as well shut down for good.

I would say that the days of the Groupon deals. at the Amex, must be pretty close, now.

All I could see on Friday night were rows and rows of shiny empty seats.

How is that waiting list of STs going ?

They are a club of desperate measures, look at the NSC. Sums them up, bunch of fvcking faires. The reaction on there is exactly how you can tell half of them are JCL's in lines such as "in all my time following the Albion this is the lowest point".

I said their crowds will dwindle like their bottle in the second leg at the Amex. Groupon deals really aren't far off down there because like I say, they are a club of desperate measures now. Can they even afford to sack Hyppia?

I believe I did see a post recently on NSC from someone rebutting on of his fellow 'fans' for all this talk of cheating by other teams. Finally, I believe at least one of them is aware of the slight advantage BHAFC received from having a new stadium, new squad, (and now) new training facility bought for them before their status as a true financial powerhouse was ever confirmed.

Hope abounds for non delusion

The council are not required to keep records on a match by match basis of attendance. We review safety management arrangements on a quarterly basis and at that time attendance figures are noted. The ground is an all seater stadium and as such has a limit to its capacity. The recent match that we reviewed which coincidentally was on the 4th November had an attendance of 16,133.

That was the Wigan game where we were on an awful run of form, it is so easy to single out one game.

Jeez - love your comment. 'No Shows' - SH*t lot of no shows. Based on the club figures and the true figures, there are about 7000 regular no shows at every game - hence about 17k turn up. To be fair, thats a good number but unfortunately, there is only the heart and soul of a club in about 7000 true fans with all the plastics around them living in their bubble world.

Sad to say, Its simply not a football club any more - just a social club for premiership armchair families (thats why the padded seats were put in).

I heard last week that when the official crowd is announced now at The Amex, there is a group of fans who scream back "Oh no it isn't" - a pantomime club in every way!

So Wigman - just go away and crawl back under your padded seat. Come back our when you are able to make a constructive debate :hi:

From what I understand, it's a bit tricky to stop the DD mid season, and doesn't work out much cheaper once they hit you with penalties than seeing it through to the bitter end.

If they stay up, I would expect the pretendance figure to be replaced with the current actual figure, but with less stayaways.

If they go down, then expect one season of respectable crowds clinging on for one more false dawn. Stay in League one beyond that - oblivion.
