Our season tickets are cheap but if you look at cost-per-home-goal:

That stat is meaningless.

The Beeb need to show us stats per point, or per win.

I imagine both of those would make grim reading for us.

£50 a ticket to watch us at the Bridge on Saturday. In what is a relatively local game for me that is pricing me out with only 10 weekends till X-mas.

We're relatively cheap when you consider other clubs, but then you look at the German method of pricing and see their attendances and atmospheres and you know we've got a LOT to do (Take a look at the Twitter feed on the right hand side of the page, I've RT a link of a German Third Division side, what an atmosphere)

This is where Villa could pioneer again. We may be crap on the field, but given attendance income is tiny in comparison with the TV money. Why not be the start of something and really cut costs and fill the ground? Something to be proud of at least. Imagine if it was capped at the "£20 is plenty" level and we brought about that change. It might be the start of some upward momentum for us. That along with ushering in Safe Standing. Let's get back to being good at something and having a purpose.

What happened to our plans on safe standing? It's gone a bit quiet. Did we hit a brick wall with the FA/PL? Or was it more a Faulkner project than a Fox one?

I agree we need to think of something different to do, it's interesting in light of this MOMS article from a few weeks ago: http://www.myoldmansaid.com/aston-villa-season-ticket-prices-percentage-2015/

The stat that shows how the Villa faithful have reacted to Villa’s recent failings on the pitch is the low % of season ticket holders that the club have this season, just 52% of Villa Park attendances is made up of season ticket holders.

It’s the lowest in the Premier League.

With Villa only on four points after almost of quarter of the season gone, and with a tough bunch of fixtures ahead, it’s unlikely the club will receive an influx of new half-season ticket holders come January.

We’ve had several important ‘survival seasons’ for the club recently, but with this season ticket slump and the team’s current relegation zone pedigree, with the huge TV rights money bonanza for Premier League teams next season, this season is one of the most important in the club’s history. Randy Lerner and friends need to step up, because our beloved club potentially faces a real disaster.

That should be screaming at them that all isn't well. As the gate turnover is small in comparison to the to money. RL SOLE aim is to tread water and remain in the EPL until he sells. No other target.

Everton have some US interest in buying them apparently. Please Randy, get us sold. You're slowly suffocating this grand old club.

Was just reading about that: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/34548860

They've been for sale for a long time and interesting to note that the asking price is a fair bit more than the £150million RL is supposedly asking for us now.
