Exactly...this is my point. Anything I donít want or I feel is over priced...I donít buy. Simple.

Itís simple if itís a product you can purchase somewhere else...but itís not is it??? So itís not so simple.

Rudi, I agree with you that CPFCís approach is expensive. My partner is a Leicester season ticket holder and their process is much better. They credit their account and for every game, money is deducted. If there is no credit, they canít enter a ballot. She has credited her account with £70.00. Well below the figures we have to pay.

However, there is ĎFreedomí and in your opinion Ďunreasonableí. Your not contractually obliged to pay the £500-£800 or the holding fee of £200. The price has been set by the club and thatís it. They are not making any of us pay these sums. They done make us buy any shirts, hats....ANYTHING. You have the freedom to walk away and spend your hard earned money on things more reasonable.

The issue is Ali , football is emotive if you donít want to pay yes of course you can walk away, but where are the alternatives? .

Why simply canít the club offer to put St on hold at no cost ? Iím sure plenty will renew to fill the available seats .. if by then which looks more doubtful by the day fans are let in.

After several months of fans loosing jobs, income, being furloughed etc etc the club they support deal another kick in teeth by telling us to pay up or lose your seat. Outstanding from a business that once the PL gravey train ends will actually need fan loyalty to provide needed income.

They whole issue has been handled with the foresight of a fool that clearly has no empathy for fans that have suffered and are suffering financially still. Unfortunately weíre all not ££ rich with Surrey mansions.

You are absolutely and irrefutably,100% correct.

You appear to love this quote as you've used it on other threads.

5000 fans back then wasn't the norm and there were away fans too and you could be with your mates and jump, sing, hug and kiss if you wanted but it'll be a sterile atmosphere now.

That's not the usual Selhurst experience like it has been since I started going in '72 and was long before that so your quote is not correct.

Check the crowd stats for '79 to '90 I've attached, don't forget there are away fans in those figures so even less than 5k Palace at 1 or 2 fixtures.

Im pretty sure there was under 4000 for one Tuesday night game, i was at every game apart from a couple in 1989-90 where i was working on a Saturday...somehow i enjoyed the games a lot more in the 1980s when were pretty dismal compared to watching the drab games in the Premier league now

Not in the 80's though, and the lowest average attendance was 6,400+ in the 84/5 season.

Iím not saying that I condone the costs or the costs to hold your seat for the following season. I agree, other alternatives could have been better for the majority of fans. However, the fool that clearly has no empathy for fans suffering gets to set what ever price they want. We as fans have two options, we either pay or we donít. Itís up to us

The alternative is what ever you want it to be. There was a life before owning and there will be one after your/our season ticketS. Again, we are not contractually obliged to pay these costs or required to by law.

Itís a loss making football club and unfortunately not a charity.

Itís not me asking for money from CPFC charity itís the other way round asking for my money for zero in return.. and

if they canít run a club profitably with 160 mill income, then they need to sort their s*** out and stop extending contacts for players like CW n CB whoís contributed practically nothing for 3 years.

They are not asking for money. They just set the prices. Again, if you donít like it, you are well within your right to take your money elsewhere
