A ST should always be the cheapest average ticket price. Its £100 more for a non early bird ST holder than it is for a member to watch every game. A fixed seat and priory tickets is surely not worth 100 quid.
Not very often I agree with Jamie, but in this case I do, and said the same things last year.
I know not everyone can afford a season ticket and think that the membership card is a good idea, but the pricing structure is wrong.
Season ticket holders give their money and commitment up front, often before most of the squad is even known, never mind how the season will pan out.
Therefore, having a season ticket should be the cheapest way to attend every home game, as a reward for making that commitment.
If they had simply priced it as £15 per match for the members rather than half price it would still be a massive saving to the membership holders without being a kick in the gonads to ST holders.
I bet there isn't another club in the football league with a scheme that makes it cheaper to not have an ST than to have one.
