  1. This is pretty bad - in any organisation or industry when the going gets tough (and based on my own experience) what you would normally try to do is determine the magnitude of the problem, work out your end solution (in this case selling those tickets to the customer), work out the steps needed to make the objective happen and the target date, you then assign competent resources to make it happen, most importantly you measure your progress (against the steps)!! Something is broken here - they need a manager to manage through the problem and to coordinate. By the way I’m not a manager - just an ordinary punter!!
  2. I heard that they’ve invited Oaky along too 🤮
  3. Aye, to wipe his mouth!! [emoji3]
  4. You can wear the new strip whilst at home watching - if we ever release it!!
  5. I’m sure I read on the official site that the lucky winners of the ballot would find out by c.o.b. Thursday - I guess this is superseded now by current events? I do wonder though, how long were the club privy to the 1039 number or was this sprung on them too??
  6. Good point this - why not put the press at the side of the pitch, corners or even the away end - get more paying fans in?
  7. That’s a disgrace - I thought there would be 2000 (more if we applied to council) with the new rules - what an absolute farce!! How come Celtic can get 1/4 of their capacity and we get 1/8th - just doesn’t make sense…
  8. I did notice earlier when checking that my seats in M7 were not available (I’ve already bought them and due to the chaos was getting paranoid that they may be) that there were some fantastic seats in M5 I think available to general public. Would have loved those seats from a viewing perspective, however I really like all the dudes that sit around me!!
  9. Indeed - I was in the city centre (Glasgow) on Saturday - imagine the melt down had I commented on Saturday night about all the talent!!
  10. It’s like a wee holiday getting a break from him!!
  11. Was on the train yesterday from Hawkhead to Glasgow Central and the carriage I was in containing say 15 people no-one was wearing a mask, the conductor came up to check tickets (he had his mask on) and didn’t challenge anyone, however on the return journey everyone was wearing their mask. But if a mixed bag, I did wonder if it’s a case of someone setting the precedent regarding the wearing or not wearing of masks?
  12. In fairness I never had any problems either with the old supplier. Regarding registering for the new supplier and buying me and my sons season ticket it appears I was one of the lucky ones as it went through ok - the only niggling thing is my confirmation never explicitly stated that I’ve got (renewed) our own seats, however I appear to be more fortunate than many!!
  13. Good balanced post and probably correct in most of the observations you make - I do wonder though what team (in terms of numbers and competency) is in place to solve the season ticket problem specifically and if they have identified what targets they need to hit and will they hit them? In other words the first home game is 3 weeks away (I think) there are numerous people with queries to get resolved, issues over people being allocated different seats etc.
  14. This!! He tried it on with me - getting all hysterical over an innocent comment that I made (in context I would add), tried to get me into trouble and ended up getting himself into a terrible mess, he took a real beating then, I’ve always said there’s bigger issues at play here!!
  15. Wee Nicky will flex her muscles to a certain extent for as long as she can but I will ultimately comply (follow suit) with BoJo - expect a 2 to 3 week lag though. Just in time for furlough’s rapid demise!!
  16. Just double checked - mines are for correct stands - had the sweats there for a moment!!
  17. I managed to renew and pay no problem and I also got my mail with the e-ticket - would have been much more assuring if the ticket had referenced mine and my sons seat numbers - in fairness they were referenced earlier in the booking process. Just worried I don’t have my actual seats that I’ve had for years!!
  18. I think you’re spot on here - surely there must be club staff that monitor or read these posts, we’re talking basic manners and customer service here. Let’s not forget 3200 people last season coughed up their money and essentially got hee-haw, to that end with it being common knowledge that there is to be no fan incentive this season and with the uncertainty meaning it may be hard to project this seasons uptake you would think the club would be trying to get things spot on from a PR perspective. I will buy my ticket and my sons - but I could understand if any other buddy that doesn’t renew.
  19. Cheers, I must have misread Tony’s update, I’ll get myself registered, it’s funny to think that we have to re register, to cough up our money for a product that we might not receive or at best perhaps have a 1 in 6 chance of receiving, furthermore will cognisance be paid to family members for example what if my 11 year old son gets drawn in the ballot but I don’t - he obviously can’t go himself??
  20. Sorry just getting back to this now, I haven’t been prompted to enter any data, last mail was Tony’s update saying we’d get a mail - which I understand others have got but I have not.
  21. I never got my email and was speaking to another season ticket holder this morning who is in the same boat. Does anyone have a contact email they can advise or a telephone number for me to call?
  22. I did - if it’s the converted vessel that went right through the lower reaches of the Thames - quite good. I’m the same regarding the back of my house and garden - been in this house 10 years now and I think I got jobs done that might never had happened had it not been for this. COVID has changed a lot of things - I digress (likely better in another thread) but I do wonder if fans will get back into green hill road in August….and in what capacity..
