  1. Sorry, I disagree. Investments are not only about making a profit, they come in all different guises. In terms of buying shares in a company, you are correct, that's usually done to make a profit. You can invest time and energy into helping, creating, or improving something, whether that be by connection such as a social group, or a physical way say by providing your labour to help a relative. By purchasing a season card, I think you are helping to give stability to that club by paying up front, therefore allowing that club to plan for the future, isn't that the reason they want to sell seaso
  2. I was creating a hypothetical situation in regards to the company. If you read the scenario, it's exactly the same as BCFC, which is a company. Then merely asking if it was an attractive proposition, of course, the two examples are different in their structure.
  3. Using different terminology for obtaining a season card is hardly a fundamental difference, after all, this seasons purchase of my season card has been a poor investment. We all know the meaning of an investment to produce a gain/profit, there are also other investments such as :an act of devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result. Like supporting your team. When I said I don't think you're getting what I'm saying, what I should have said is, you haven't a clue what I'm saying. And your last jibe about becoming a plastic is typ
  4. Not sure you're getting what I'm saying, especially when you say you know what you're getting with a season card, consumable? You also buy a season card with, to use your words, "expectation of some benefit/return in the future". We never know what we're getting really, but, with a change in structure right from the top, through to the playing staff and administrative changes, it's even less of a clear picture of what we'll be getting at this present moment. I don't want to invest in a season card, if we're likely to have a rookie manager and a smaller, lower quality squad. If we had a
  5. My investment is likely to be similar to yours, I enjoy the day out. I'm trying to find out how others that might not be so emotionally involved are planning. I'm sure the club are anxious to find that out as well.
  6. No I'm not making that assumption. I'm asking if people think it's worth buying a season card now, when so much is up in the air. I have obviously made the mistake of putting a different take on things, by comparing it to buying shares in the same product. By mistake, I mean people cannot see the comparison between investing (buying shares) in a company where the future is uncertain and, buying a season card for BCFC where the future is uncertain.
  7. Nobody is suggesting that we take our money elsewhere, I'm just posing the question that with our current scenario, as I've listed, would you or anyone else consider packing it in, or delaying your purchase until it looked like a more positive future. We're currently being asked to invest (buy Season Cards) in something that is very grey at the moment.
  8. The analogy is investing your hard earned (or not) cash in a product, not knowing what you're going to get in return. It could be worth it, or not worth it. "Analogies are complex and often rely on a reader or listener using logic to figure out what connection the user of the analogy is making". I wasn't referring to buying the whole product as you seem to imply, just investing in it. Which is what you are doing when you buy the season card, whether you like it or not. It's a gamble, it might be worth it with a good season or it might not with a shyte season, like has just happened.
  9. I was making an analogy, I know the difference thanks.
  10. Yes I understand that and I've been doing it for a long time. I'm making comparisons as to whether it's a attractive venture, as in investing time and money for a season card. You can after all support a team, without any cash investment whatsoever.
  11. Sorry about the long title but I didn't want to tempt people in with click bait. I also apologise if this has been discussed before, but here goes. Imagine a stockbroker offering shares for sale in a company. The company has been in decline for say, four years, though it seemed to be treading water before a sudden downturn. It has spent an awful lot of money on it's infrastructure and stock, even though some of that stock has not increased in value, most probably decreased in value. It has a good experienced though temporary shop floor manager running the show, with
  12. People are giving credit to Ashton for signing, then selling Webster at an inflated price. Unless I have it totally wrong, wasn't Webster supposed to be injury prone having spent a long time injured at Ipswich and, our purchase of the injury prone Webster was seen as a bit of a punt. Luckily for us, this was one of those punts which we seem to take, that actually paid off. Isn't it also the case that, just before the sacking of SC, Ashton was working behind the scenes, coincidence surely that he arrived just before LJ? Then we went on a spending spree of player after player for eithe
  13. You'll have to explain that one.
  14. Hopefully they'll require rebuilding before they're needed, those Elizabethan drains will require that at some point, just like the Victorian sewers are being renewed.
