A bit disappointing IMO.


Sweet baby Jesus and the orphans.


I’m a bit slow on the up-take, bellfilth I’ve just realised that only the opinion of the Hampshire sewer-mouth counts.


Are you constipated?


Inadequate retort from HS-M. 3/10 Could do better.

Martin a point to make is that also includes season tickets (not all of which will attend the game).

Just getting it in then before anyone after the game says wheres the missing 500.

To be honest a good effort for a Tuesday night match given the newport attendance.

Also as a comment on twitter says £14 for an under 18 will have an impact (£12 for this game), should be no more than a £5er for under 12's.

£64 for two adults and two 7 yr olds.
£40 for two adults and two 6 yr olds.

Mr Hymas here is were the problem is, a barrier to entry for any family wanting to attend regularly in anywhere else but A block.

Look at the empty seats in the quarry lane end, make this a family stand charge no more than £30 a family.

350 fans at most weekly? (including kids) average £18 per ticket. £6,300

1000 fans (family of 4 ticket £30) - i.e 250 x £30 = £7,500.

Add on top extra food sales, future generations of fans buying into and growing up with the club, extra merchandise sales, some familys willing to upgrade into the west stand - surely this is a no brainer if advertised and pushed through all medias (not just facebook and twitter).

I do get your point about cheap tickets for families.
But whenever anyone quotes it’s always for the dearest possible seats .
The family stand Ian greaves lower .you can buy an £18 ticket for adult and child .
Therefore a family of 6 with 2 kids under 7 can go for £36 .
People seem still not to know about the family area yet it’s been advertised all season .
All the best .Up the stags !

If they announce it today then that's simply not good enough. T'plod need to forewarn folk well in advance.
Folk may have elderly relatives with them and can't be suddenly expected to walk another 3/4 of a mile in 4-5mins.

I've told them to come by car to avoid the risk of missing the train back. :roll:

It really is a crap on SAG/plods part.

At least this has proven - like the Coventry game - that we needn't make games like this all ticket. For county and chestefield yes, but not for these types of games.

The club will probably have lost revenue due to this

They have gambled that getting an extra 150 guaranteed away ticket sales compared to a probable 100-300 home fan purchases on the day.
It looks like the biggest Stags v Lincoln home Attendance in years anyway.
Season 2003/04 during the period of good home gates was 5797, my guess is it will be short of that by a hundred.
My guess is 5688 tonight.

Not like Mansfield or the police to inconvenience the Mansfield fans, we great treated so badly it's unreal.

Still yet to hear a response from the plod as to why they can't hold the away fans back like we know they can do. Like Coventry did. It happens in the champions league!!

Those that get trains for instance are buggered tonight if the magical gate from narnia is closed. But not one thought for those for instance.

If only the local Millennials would stop buying avocado toast, eh. They could afford to buy a ticket anywhere in the ground.

We go in the family stand whenever we go nowadays. Brilliant value for money at 18 quid for me and my daughter. We are there tonight again COYS. Keep up the good work.

He did but like the Chesterfield game there will be a percentage of season ticket holders that don't turn up. Probably a large number of under 7's
