Phil, it might appear that they under count, but they’re never going to over count. This comment is solely based on when the attendance is announced and I look around the ground and think that there’s more than that here. Not so sure this happens with C&K but definitely previous owners.

Attendance figures can be the number present or the total tickets sold including non-present STs. Financial aspects would only apply to tickets sold, whereas attendance figures can be used for marketing or prestige purposes. Assuming everyone is truthful.

I’m not saying you take the money twice. The club charges ppl for a season ticket which when divided by the number of games works out at X amount. The fans go through the turnstile and as it’s computerised they know how many season tickets holders have entered the ground, so they can say exactly how many ST holders have entered. They then add this amount to the paying customers and that gives you the amount that fans have paid, therefore giving you a gate receipt. You have to bear in mind that the club only counts the fans going through the turnstile, so those ST holders that can’t get to the game don’t count, in the attendance. Do you think the club would announce an attendance, which they get taxed on if they’re only in receipt of about 2,500 fans admission fee. 

I’m not saying anything I’m saying a gate of 8000 in fa cup will generate more additional income than the Bradford game, the club have all ready counted the ST money once, they can’t count it twice , I’m on about additional income as a direct result of this draw that will strengthen DC hand in January ( ST will not as this was budgeted way back and accounted for in the playing budget and the players we have all ready signed )

Clarke will lead us to back-to-back promotions and Carol will flip the club for a nice profit. 

Why??? Delia Smith has been in a similar position at Norwich since...what...early 2000's from being a season ticket holder? There are parallels with Carol and no reason to think Carol would flip the club if it's becoming successful? Delia turned down a large sum from a Norwich businessman because she would have had to relinquish her shares - for Delia the fan, see Carol the fan!

No but my point was only ever about the worth of FA cup game v Brentford to the club financially , and it’s worth more than the Bradford game you mentioned, your Metroid of accounting for ST pro rata per game is not how any club accounts for its finances through the books

To be fair, I’m told Carol’s vegetarian shepherd’s pie isn’t that great though.

Was a facetious comment. Clarke will win 3 promotions.

Carol said in an interview on 5Live (I think) that she wants Vale in the Championship before she retires.

Must be honest mate was hoping April job. Nice balmy evening. All our players back and decent ish weather.  

It is telling mind we didn't set it for the Tuesday after... shows good thinking to allow us the time by having it in January for the big two up top or any new signings to be done by then.

Also I guess you have to factor its a mutual thing with FGR too and the EFL. 

Just personally a night in short sleeves in April with a expectant bumper crowd appeals more to the casual fan than shivering taters off in February.

Most of those games I can understand, Swindon-City defo, plus always a good chance of an upset if Champ team at home v Prem, and will be an audience for Forest given their history, Millwall v Palace could be a bit tasty too.

Man U-Villa and WHam-Leeds tho? They sound good games on paper, but they won't be as bothered about this as they are the two league games every year between the same teams, and so you'll basically just get a reserve match. Surely Chelsea-Chesterfield should have been chosen before those, or Kiddy-Reading, even if our game wasn't?

Oh well, more chance of a decent crowd if not on TV I guess.

Oh well, I guess it's back to just listening again. The FA and the EFL really need to get their act together so video can be shown via iFollow of FA Cup games. I for one would happily pay the entrance fee or more to watch on iFollow..
