My interpretation of that and other interviews with Mowbray is that his aim is to set up this European scouting network so that at the end of next season if we cash in on Dack, then we are in a position to reinvest that money. Doesn't look like we will see the benefit of the new scouting model until January at the earliest.

My interpretation is that Mowbray is covering all his bases because he hasn't said definitely either way. That's what worries me.

More massaging of the figures to suit the agenda. Last season it suited him to claim the higher figure whereas now with a pitiful 2500 sold it suits to set the bar lower and achieve higher.

Possibly if people got on with renewing their STs the figures would look a touch better?

Did ours weeks ago.

Possibly if the club treated sales with more urgency and got them on sale at the same time as most other clubs more people would have bought by now? e.g. whilst people are going to Ewood during the season rather than saving up for their summer holidays with other things to think about than Rovers.

I'll buy when I'm ready to. No question I'll renew and I'll need to do it at some point this month to secure my seats. Not the same for other people though.

Perhaps the rest of the support feels the same way. In which case when STs go on sale makes no difference.

In the past they have had an early bird offer which made the tickets cheaper for an earlier purchase. For whatever reason they haven't put in any beneficial deadlines this season apart from claiming your seat. 

I'm not sure of the reasons for this but why would anybody pay money so far ahead when they don't need to. I have mine but certainly wouldn't criticise anybody who is waiting until the last minute.

For the existing 8,000 to 10,000 that have renewed regardless since relegation it doesn’t particularly matter when they go on sale or how they are marketed. We renew anyway out of loyalty/habit/duty whatever.

But surely we should be looking further than just re-signing up the core every year? 

And I am not expecting PL sales, just a little imagination/drive to attract just an incremental rise.

By the way that incremental rise isn’t legit if the club simply ignores their own published sales of 10,000+ for last season and pretends we sold 8,500, so they can spin even a decrease this summer as a success...

If you want to keep your seat you obviously have to renew earlier but if you don't and possibly, unless yours is a very popular area, even if you do, there's no real rush. Pay for your holiday first and then get the ST. Waiting doesn't make you less of a fan.

Not yet but I’ve been getting emails and texts. Just waiting for Mark Hughes to phone me up and I’ll be down there like a shot.

One arrived for my eldest son. He's renewing anyway just hasn't got round to it. My guess is this is just a shotgun mail shot and not targeted at all.

Approaching 4,000 sold. 

At least Sharpe isn’t still pedalling the Waggott lie that we only sold 8,500 last season.

https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17716831.rovers-season-ticket-update-as-june-deadline-approaches/

Without a like for like you can’t really judge sales at this point. 

Be interesting to see what they are after the claim the seat deadline...

Less than Blackpool have sold to date. Obviously the final sales figure is the important one but surely we are concerned/embarrassed by that and those sales to date?

It depends. They don’t normally release sales figures week by week like they are doing this time.

Do sales always start low and then a shed load of folk renew just before claim your seat deadline? Possibly how it always occurs here. Especially this season as there is no early bird period and then the price hike, so even less need to rush to renew.

Or they could be down like for like and we are looking at sales akin to the Coyle season as we are a fair way away from 10,000 sales with 6 weeks to the season.

But we’ve no idea without that comparison to previous years.

Blackpool will have had a surge due to change of ownership and it can't be related to our sales.

As you say it's the final figures that matter.

Plus, there doesn't seem any sign of a couple of clever signings to get people down to buy.  We need a clear out in my opinion. A younger more vibrant coaching set up, a bit of pizzazz is missing from our club I'm sad to say.
