Few salient points here lads.
First of all, @Bluedylan
, i saw 52k and was disappointed. I deffo get where you are coming from. But my disappointment doesn't stand up to the cold hard facts (money) of the matter. I was hoping for 55k and so 3000 seats isn't something i'm going to dwell on.
Second, this 10k waiting list? It's supply and demand. There are people like me and @Brownie
who have bought a season ticket even though it didn't make any sense at the time. There will be people who cant really afford it, cant really make it often enough due to locatio0n or work. But they'll get one now BECAUSE there's a waiting list.
I waited 2 years for my 2 season tickets @TheRam
. The fact you now even hve to PAY to be on the waiting list says a lot.
But, a lot of them 10k will be people buying up our general sale tickets every other week. And many will be on it with a "i can't get one this year, but if there's a waiting list i should go on it as i want one in the vague future".
This all inflates that list.
There's one more consultation in the spring/summer @arteta4spain
. With an idea of putting in planning permission next summer/autumn. Somewhere around then is when we're going to get the designs.
