There is definitely more of an emotional tie to buying a ST to say spending £250 with the NEC group for 4 concert tickets. Most people wouldn’t hesitate to get a refund there.
However, some people are going to need every penny back they can lay their hands on, so certainly shouldn’t be criticised if circumstances have now changed.

Understood and agreed, but surely if you couldn't afford it you wouldn't buy a season ticket in the first place? It's not something you'll ever see any sort of return on and it's not exactly up there on Maslow's hierarchy of human needs, is it?

We all make the effort, by doing without other things, to purchase something that we can't necessarily afford, if it's for something we want (house, car, ST?).
You don't make the same effort if you are receiving nothing in return (or donating to a charity), which makes it very difficult to justify to anyone else in your household that you are depriving by your nugatory expenditure.
Teachers Pet being a prime example.

You obviously have a financial fluidity situation that many others do not.
I am not a season ticket holder.

Agree, unless your limited domestic budget doesn't justify funding 'overpaid' footballers when, especially in the current climate, you should be pushing your finite funds in a considerably more important direction. 
Not all of our supporters are in the same 'flush' financial situation as it appears that a number of you on here are.

As you might be aware I am not flush with funds but Manwork does inject a modicum of realism with his buyer beware slogan. I purchased my st in the knowledge that I might be very lucky to see 30% of home games. Surely our fanbase is not so naive to buy a st without taking into account the current situation?

Brilliant pod cast, was great listening again, still got nervous during the penalties!! Didnt know the team sheet got leaked to us either.

A day never to be forgotten thats for sure. Was lucky enough to watch every game in the cup that year and the Reading game was also a brilliant performance.

Thanks Woody!

Spot on, Deepcut.

I have purchased a season ticket and my two sons have - close on a £1000 for three seats in the West stand. I didn't request a refund last year but why shouldn't I this year? I'm getting £10 back in return for ALL of us to watch it on IFollow together. Where's the financial gain in that??

I can’t work out why there’s no sign of Lloyd Jones signing when he’s a free agent - surely there’s no “domino” to fall in this instance?

I take it you are taking the ‘Mick’ ?

I dont remember calling you out on anything over the last 24 hours Terry, but it seems i may have hit a raw nerve. You replied to a general point I made about an agreement between the Trust and the club being inconvenient for some, jumping to the conclusion I was referring to you. You responded with the word BOLLOCKS. How very childish and illuminating at the same time.
Since you've assumed and therefore taken ownership, yes i was referring to you and I make no apologies for doing so.
Regards the announcement that the Trust have backed the club you will note that I have offered no comment whatsoever, positive or negative, because as Deepcut has said, we haven't got a fcking clue what that entails.
And I am absolutely not trying to drive a wedge into anything, I'm merely highlighting what I see as your * constant and historic sniping *  in attempts to do the same between the Trust and just about everyone else.

You are more than welcome to your opinion. If what you mean by "constant sniping" is my steadfast stance on the lack of consultation between the Trust board and its members, then I'm afraid you will have to live with that.

In terms of what else I said on this post. Myself and virtually all people who commented, appeared to be happy that no matter what our personal opinions are, we are happy that there appears to be something to guardedly celebrate. You then decided to stir the pot, attempting to spoil the moment.

You will have to continue your muck racking exercise with no further input from me. I am as happy as I can be under the circumstances about the current situation. Hopefully you can adopt a similarly adult line and let things be.

We bought our season tickets in the knowledge that we wouldn't initially get to attend games and with the possibility that would go on for a while.

The way I look at it though is you aren't just buying a ticket to the game, you are paying for the excitement of signing a new player, of following the ups and downs of the the league table, of the excitement of being at the top of the table or the jitters of being at the bottom end, of enjoying the banter and one-upmanship with your mates who support other clubs. There are a lot of elements to enjoy over a season and a lot of them don't take place from a seat in the stadium.

If we take our money back we diminish the likelihood of enjoying all those things as well as missing out on the in-person match day experience.

Agree, unless your limited domestic budget doesn't justify funding 'overpaid' footballers when, especially in the current climate, you should be pushing your finite funds in a considerably more important direction.
