Thats all the football fans getting chased out by 6pm then!
Why do many fans stay beyond 6pm??
Some stay for a drink with the players/management for a while..

I'm pretty certain keeping the prices at the usual is the best move. The crowd would have to be fantastic to get the same monies for £5 and £1. Let's hope everyone playing at home is a winner!

Dropping the prices would have attracted a few more, but the loss in income would have been considerable.

How many actually stay behind, really... I mean, also, I doubt the Rugby lot are packing the place out. I suspect if people are still buying drinks, they'll be happy to have them.

Downstairs bar is normally clear by 6 and players tend to eat & drink upstairs. Last home game a few decided to head straight into town as there was no football on tv (International weekend)

Perhaps "we" should be making suggestions like this via our board members/supporter rep?

Not as easy as that. You have to agree FA Cup pricing with the opponent

Other team manage it.. I know it's not as easy as it sounds , I'm sure there 50 or so fans wouldn't of minded a couple quid cheaper, open the away turnstiles charge them £12 they are still getting a good percentage of the gate receipts...

Exactly. They are hardly going to be slapping each other on the back over this, they will be thinking "what a crap draw"
How perceptive. Stephen Holmes on BPA forum writres " Another crap draw".
