  1. You'd get the club shop for that much, although it is due to be demolished so maybe not a great deal after all. Do you have 2,999 friends to bring along? You do realise that your 2,000 likes are not all from unique users don't you??? 😀
  2. I also included Scotch Tape and sandwiches, as well putting a caveat at the bottom!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. As a 30 year old you worry, as a 21 year old you look at it as room for improvement and ££££ 😎
  4. £250 is a decent price, and throw in the 9 prizes available to early birders I think it is good offer. What makes it a great promotion is the cash back offer(s) The lure of a £150 season ticket will get people talking about it and will definitely attract extra sales, that's the idea of a promotion. The figures involved also make it extremely unlikely that we'll actually have to cough up the extra hundred quid. The suggestion that we need an extra 1,100 sales is misleading. Last season's total sales were c2,000, to trigger the cashback sales have to be 3,000 excluding u18s & posh seats. I wonder what the like for like comparison would look like, but anyway a great promotion!
  5. Bloody naysayers!!!!! 😛
  6. Arbroath Smokies, Plymouth gin, Eccles Cakes, Cornish pasties, Melton Mowbray pork pies, Bury Black puddings, Haggis (although not the US), Grasmere gingerbread, Kendal mint cake, Sandwiches, Scotch whisky, Scotch tape, Scotch Eggs, Chorley Cakes, Newmarket sausages, Cumberland sausages, Shirley's hot pot, Wrexham lager, Yorkshire tea, Devon custard, Manchester tarts and Red Leicester are all protected authentic products* that can only be produced within a certain radius and that the rest of the world will pay handsomely for! * Okay I might have included one or two non genuine products in the list but this is a Brexit discussion so if you want accurate facts then you've clearly missed the last two years!
  7. Picking on your quote as it's the most comprehensive. Visas/waivers I'll ignore, we've discussed and disagreed on them before 😀 The single market has to go but I don't think I've heard anyone be it Boris, Nigel, Nicola or Tony suggest that they are against a free trade deal, it seems that all are for that be it softies or hardies. Cheap booze (and cigarette) cruises I couldn't give two hoots about and I sat that as someone who brought back 16 boxes of fags back from Benidorm last year. Such acts subsidise France or Spain's health services rather than our own and at a time that we could do with cutting back on drinking and smoking maybe it would be a good thing if they cost more? Your bin point will be dealt with councils cutting back bin collections further 😉 Some menial labour jobs will require overseas immigrants but we need to increase the number of Brits in work, there are many desperate to get a low paid minimum wage job and others who need a kick up the bum to do it. As Ryan has pointed out being in the EU doesn't protect from inflation. An inflation point possibly to do with the EU is inflation always bad? It's a long and complex debate including British living expectations, money cycles and balancing impacts on increasing certain low waged incomes whilst reducing spending power of other low earners which is probably best not attempted at this time of the morning on a mobile phone ☺
  8. Quick question for people. If confirmed as £110 would anyone be tempted to get a ticket for Dale as well as Gigg? No use to those who go home and away bit for those who don't would a selected 10 or 11 games around a tenner a pop appeal? A few years ago I bought a golden ticket at Oldham, five games for £15 of which I used 4 as the other clashed with a Bury game, so I can certainly see the appeal. I push biked it to one match, it took half the time to get home as it did to get there due to the gradients involved!
  9. I can't believe that the promotion has received so little response from people, ignoring the cash back the prizes of refunds/tours/shirts available for early birders is a great example of things to offer that are virtually nil cost yet have a decent perceived value. For those alone I say well done to the club.
  10. Simple way to get to 3,000 - everyone buys two season tickets. Cash outlay £500, less £150 = £350. £50 of vouchers = home or away shirt covered so fifty quid saving can be knocked off the £350. You then have a spare season ticket to use to drag friends along each week for effectively an extra fifty quid. Bargain!
  11. People have died, that is literally a tragedy, and I don't want to diminish that horrible thing, but I think we are all aware that there is the potential for deranged people to commit these crimes. What disgusted me, but is possibly a reflection on society today, was one quote which I am paraphrasing that said "I saw one person in distress, then I saw a second person down and I started filming" Is it just me who's reaction would be either to try to help one of the injured people or to freeze in shock, more likely to be the latter if I'm honest, but at no point would I be thinking "oh good I can get a good video here"?
  12. It would have to be a bumper deal for him to consider it so I really can't see it happening. It would be of no benefit to anyone to announce that we'd offered an extension and it had been rejected as some would jump on him as a greedy so and so which could affect his and the team's form.
  13. The problem with any system with feedback is that it is so easy to fake it and it is so expensive to properly police that to do so would be prohibitive for small traders
  14. I can understand the medical profession's reluctance to accept this responsibility as if they do then how long until a victim's family sues a GP because one of his patients that he didn't report kills someone?
  15. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3139824/norman-tebbit-whose-wife-was-left-paralysed-by-ira-bomb-says-the-world-is-a-sweeter-and-cleaner-place-after-martin-mcguinness-dies-aged-66/ It's rare that I agree with Tebbit but this is an exception Let's not forget that he wasn't just a shit towards Brits and protestants but also catholics who dared to break his code. Declaring him a hero is like saying that the Krays were great for neighbourhood watch schemes.
  16. Talk about the boy who cried wolf!!!! 😀
  17. Definitely the former, but I'll take the latter too 😇
  18. Thought you'd learnt not to believe everything you read on the website 😉 To be fair it's just the club trying to remind the fans how lucky we are to have a caring board 😃 It's a promotion just not a "local promotion" per league rules
  19. In terms of local promotions per league rules I don't think think the multi game offer would count as walk up prices were the same for all, effectively they were partial season tickets. The limit is 4 local promotions per season.
  20. Personally I'd get rid. It ruins the matchday build up knowing who will be in goal as it completely removes the hour long debate about which random keeper will start. His permanent presence also reduces shirt sales, we could flog some suckers 6 or 7 goalie shirts a season as they'd want to keep up to date with the latest signing but we'd only sell them one with a decent number 1. I'm also finding it hard to slate the defence due to the lack of goals conceded, a good whine about poor communication and incompetent shot stopping and cross taking was a guaranteed 5 or 6 posts every match day and instead we have to say well done. Where's the fun in that??? If we wanted to praise players we'd support United or City!!!!! Bloody rubbish Bury!
  21. Traditionally it was tory leaning or Labour leaning peers, now it's out and out Tories or Labour members a la Mandelson, Two Jags, Howard and Lansley, it's as if they don't want to move on from their careers but cannot be bothered with elections. Maybe it's an issue with politicians per se, a lot less people have a problem with Labour peers like Robert Winston or Tories like Michael Grade as we don't have the same sense that they're only in it for themselves. Reform is required but I'm not sure what, I really don't like the idea of an elected house. I love the fact that our head of state is non partisan (the royalty debate is another discussion) rather than Trump like, and love the idea of the second house being full of learned people trying to do their neutral best for the country but alas that isn't possible under the current system and I'm not sure that it is actually achievable. My dislike of an elected second chamber is due to the fact that it would more or less mirror the make up of the house of commons therefore would there be any level of proper scrutiny? It would also be beholden to the same party system, it would depend on the system introduced but it would be very expensive and difficult for independents to run and be elected.
  22. This is going to be a strange case where I use Andrew Lloyd Webber as an example of a good Lord. He was slated by many for complaining that he was expected to turn up and vote on matters but his view was that he was there as a non political expert in his area and would turn up when relevant to his expertise and not turn up to discuss trains, education or immigration. Too many have been appointed who's only expertise is being a politician and will turn up to get paid and to back their friends. ALW's record of 30 odd votes during his peerage would be shocking in Parliament but refreshing that he is trying to represent his field and nothing else. I'm sure there are many similar ones who we do not recognise but instead are fed rejected MPs and "celebs" like Mone & Brady.
  23. Lizards, snakes and crocodiles will be greatly offended by your remark! 🐊🐢🐍
  24. For all that MPs are slated as a whole there are a great many, even the majority, who work bloody hard for their constituents. You won't have heard of most of them as they focus on fighting for their area rather than fighting to boost their career. Let's be honest Gideon was floated into a safe seat where you'd have to do something spectacular to be a tory and not get elected rather than him having a deep affinity for the people and the area, his whole career has been to boost his and his pals' bank balances rather than be a public servant. Elected officials be it Parliament or councils, plus Lords and Dames, should be there to serve not be served
  25. All the more reason for HS2! If FA staff could save 20 minutes on their journey from home into central London, across London to Euston, up to Manchester Piccadilly, the tram to Bury and then the taxi to Gigg then I'm sure we'd have more call ups 😃
