I think that is excellent given the circumstances we are in, there should be something for everyone within those options........

We have gone for option C, that way the club keeps the money and we get something also. Shame I have already pre-ordered my shirt.

Just reading on EADT that the most contentious issue is that the full refund will be drip-fed over 10 months.

Not for me to say - and some may really need the money - but if they bought the season ticket a year ago - wouldn’t people have mentally accepted the money was gone then? And if the season had ended properly, then would people have really got their money’s worth ( “we lost 3- 0 at home to Bolton, but at least I got my money’s worth”). I think buying a season ticket to watch football is totally different to, say, buying a new oven - you can’t really guarantee anything and you can’t ask for a refund if you’ve hit a bumpy road or have a long blip.

It might feel the club Is playing with people’s money, but if the club gave full refunds back at once, then it would hit the club even more. I can understand what they’re doing and I think most would accept that.

I agree entirely, that money was gone in the eyes of everyone who bought a ST, yes some may need the money back now and they will get it, its hardly life changing sums.

Yep totally agree. I actually went with Option B, as IF we get back to see live games i can get some "free" cup match tickets or take someone else along for a match or two. And if we dont get to see live matches, then the money is in the club and they dont lose out.
