To be fair it shows how inept the stewarding and security are. Ridiculous how he got on and more so that only one bothered to try and stop him. It was once he was off and carried away that others came down.

Stupid kid yeah, not great for the club that’s true, but it did make me laugh at the time, I won’t lie.

Several people kicked out by stewards in the Covered End Lower today for having pints in the stands.

No mention of the fact they would have walked straight past the Stewards on the stairs a minute before, with a full pint in hand

It’s so poor. It’s almost as if the ‘authority’ gives them a kick rather than actually doing the job which is more about preventative measures than anything else.

x tickets at £5 per tickets = £5x ... or have I missed something?

Less the full price ticket match income from people who would have bought a match ticket at standard price.

So, best guess the club would have sold at most 3,500 tickets at £4.17 each net of VAT. That’s £14,583.

If we assume for argument’s sake the average net yield from a paid ticket normally is £15 that means the club got the same as if 1,000 people had bought match tickets at normal prices. No extra.

Or you can say the club lost £10,830 from those 1,000 people and gained a similar amount back from the other 2,500 who came and paid.

I’m assuming that the home crowd was 6,000 season ticket holders, 1,500 comps and 3,500 payers. There may have been more STs and comps and fewer payers.

It’s anyone’s guess how many would have paid at full price - I doubt if it would have been quite as low as 1,000 for a Saturday game. But given we had 8,000 home fans on Tuesday and won it’s reasonable to assume we would have had 9,000 plus today, which makes the FFAF effect very small. In 2010/11 we would have sold a five figure number of £5 tickets, from recollection.

Hope the next time someone on here says that there is no problem with giving away tickets for free, they look at the extra stewards in the East stand so tibthe pitch invader against Ipswich. These freebie lot (no idea if todays invader was) are now costing us money

The clubs first fine this season in incoming then? If that’s the case it was only a matter of time with incidents going on all season. Opposition players attacked with coins etc, other young individuals running on the pitch at the end of a game, seat thrown at a steward. Idiot running on the pitch v Norwich in the Cup.

Running on the pitch and giving it to the losing away team = muggy thing to do. Plus I had to spend 30 minutes telling my 9 yr old over and over that no, he couldn't run on the pitch at the next game!

All hypothetical nonsense to prove your point?

Poor old Rick. The man knows his onions and cares passionately about the club and it's success or otherwise. We all know that he was primarily responsible (along with a small committee) for having built our attendances and developed the initiatives to do so. He might sound obsessed but that's what it needs to implement and a growth strategy and succeed. He might not be everyone's cup of tea but he undoubtedly loves the club as much as anyone else and knows more about how it runs than anyone involved in it today. Cut him a bit of slack.

Increase in pond life?

Has anyone done the Maths? Can someone ask Mick Everett if the Club fine outweighs the extra income?

3-5 year FBO is fine by me.

So ... Mick Everett .. did we break even?

Please let Thomas know either way.

There seemed to be quite a lot of very drunk 20 somethings in the Covered End.
