Newcastle Should Take The Lead And Lower Ticket Prices

5:30 pm, Wednesday, February 10th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 225 Comments

In the last financial year through June 30th of last year the graph shown below is the split of revenue for Newcastle between broadcast, commercial and matchday – the total revenue being £128.8M, which was the 17th highest in world football.

Notice that the match day revenue is down to 21% and that was much much higher in years gone by.

This financial year through the end of June is on the same old three year deal and the match revenues should remain around 21% for the financial year ending at the end of June of this year.

graph (1)

This was the split in the two previous financial years.

Notice also that from season 2012-2013 to season 2014-2015 matchday revenues have more than halved as a percentage of Newcastle’s total revenues.

In the new deal starting this summer Newcastle should get about £55M more from the broadcast (Premier League TV rights) than we have received in the last two years.

So based on that and assuming no increase in commercial or match day revenues –  the revenue we get should be around £185M and therefore match day revenues should fall to around 14.2% of the total.

Broadcast revenues would rise to about £132M of the £185M total, which is a little over 71% – so broadcast revenue starts to be the big factor and the reality is that matchday revenues are becoming a smaller and smaller part of the revenue picture.

So for the financial year through June of next year under the new PL TV deal, this is the likely split of revenue for Newcastle.

This will be true for other PL clubs too, so put the price of tickets up – as Liverpool had the cheek to try to do this week – is simply ripping the fans off – and if anything the PL clubs should be reducing the ticket prices to make the games more accessible to supporters.

We have to remember that fans are not rich – unlike the the owners, players and managers of Premier League clubs.

So it’s good that Newcastle have announced that all standard season tickets for the U-18s at St. James’ Park will be reduced by up to 54% for next season.

The club says the new pricing structure, which will be confirmed in coming weeks will see young people under the age of 18 paying as little as £3 per match.

That’s good – but Newcastle could also set an excellent  precedent by making all season ticket prices cheaper  across the board – or at the very least freezing them now for future seasons.

The club have essentially done that for fans paying for season tickets over multiple years – and those prices have been held steady.

It would be a great move by Newcastle to be a leader in this – after Liverpool’s American owners got a deserved black eye for attempting to raise their ticket prices.

This is what Lee Charnley, Managing Director at Newcastle has said:

“While the debate around Premier League ticket prices continues, we want to ensure watching football at St. James’ Park remains affordable for as many people as possible.”

“There is a clear risk that clubs could lose generations of supporters with the cost being a major factor and we have considered that when setting prices for 2016/17.”

“We want to encourage more families to attend and ensure that the price of a ticket does not become a barrier for our youngest supporters.”

Reducing the ticket prices and giving fans at Newcastle a really good deal could also help to get sellouts for every home game – which will only help the team on the pitch.

And good performances on the pitch will lead to more money from the Premier League every May.

Sellouts n every home game was always the case when Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson were managing the club.

This would be one single step in getting Newcastle back to greatness again – and if Leicester City can top the Premier League then Newcastle United can do the same.

Oh, by the way did I say this was all dependent on us staying in the Premier League this season?

Comments welcome.

    Morning all,

    Ed…Timed this perfectly from me posting the link – got a good sleep, thanks.

    Okay, so here’s the question, I’m sure we all accept cheap tickets on the face of it is a good thing, but what is more important to the match going fans?

    Quality entertainment or value?

    Going forward, cheaper tickets shouldn’t really mean less quality. I posted a link where the Bayern chairman was saying that to the fans, £100 here and there was a big deal, but that only amounted to small money in their scheme of things, it was merely negotiating money for a signing. Then again, they’re not a club who deem profit or finances above all else.

  • 2 Big Archie // Feb 10, 2016 at 5:46 PM

    Ed – the real sad thing about Newcastle fans is that even when prices are lowered they bitch about it.

    They say things like “does fatso think we are that dumb?”, or “Ashley must be so desperate”, or “he can’t sell season tickets because we are all cleverer than him!”

    Sad sad sad sad sad!

    So guys fess up, did faustino Asprillo mess up our chances of winning the title? From the videos I’ve seen he looked a canny player. Scored a hattrick against Barcelona to. Really sad that I missed ‘the entertainers’ era. Now I have to settle for us flirting with relegation and being blessed with players such as: Obertan and Cabella. Lol.

  • 4 John Akomfrah // Feb 10, 2016 at 5:52 PM

    Never judge someone based on someone else’s opinion.

  • 5 The Diamond dogs hoojars // Feb 10, 2016 at 5:53 PM

    Would be a great statement by the club to lower prices,they will most probably freeze and lower prices for kids.

    As for Shelvey he needs to produce away from home also, Barklay pi$$ed all over him at Goodison, made him look completly ordinary, that said Shelvey isn’t the only one who has ti pick it up away from home,the clock is ticking, on paper now we look a very decent team, but so far in reality we are were we deserve to be.

  • 6 YoungMagpieFromBurnley // Feb 10, 2016 at 5:54 PM

    Big archie

    Where that has some truth, it’s normally just the timing in which he did it that caused all of that commotion. He normally does it when there is a threat of boycotting as he always wants a full stadium caught on TV. If he did it now however it would be showing that he is lowering the ticket prices for the good of the fans rather then because he wants a full stadium.

  • 7 The Diamond dogs hoojars // Feb 10, 2016 at 5:58 PM

    Ti o did very well imo, legend at the toon, Man Utd with 38points out of 45 points in the last 15 games would have overhauled virtually any team, it was freaky, Cantona Giggs n Schmeichel were unstoppable.

  • 8 Ibizatoon // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:08 PM

    Big Archie…Sad? Easy now.

    Do you not think, by some of the things the club themselves have admited, that fans have a right to edge towards a cynical view?

    One could suggest it’s sad to simply accept anything the club give us and hearld them as wonderful saviours of the North East (see, everyone can take someones view point and take it to the extreme).

    Diamond Dogs…Was just reading the Tino article on SS. Still love the guy. Liked the bit about a glass of wine before his debut.

    Maybe that’s the answer? Steve needs to get the lads on it before KO? Could be entertaining.

    HI , I did not want you to publish your address or name ,,just the name of your boozer or an establishment I can send too..anyway we can sort something out ..no bother .

  • 10 Ibizatoon // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:09 PM

    For the blogs sanity, I wont mention the Ben Arfa article I also just read on the SS website…whoops.

  • 11 Ibizatoon // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:12 PM

    Online…Hello! That makes sense, cheers.

    Now I just have to find a boozer in Ibiza…I think I may know one or two…

    Just want to say, for your part, well done. Seems Ed is making serious attempts to deal with the blogs issues. We may not get perfection, but it’s moving.

    We’ll be sending you in for talks with Ashley and Charnley soon.

  • 12 Online Guy // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:14 PM

    bIg Archie …where you coming from ? very negative comments from you ‘Watching you and your posts ..I dont think your going to be around much longer ..easily outed.

  • 13 Online Guy // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:22 PM

    Ibiza , my pc is lagging behind its taking ages to write anything , I’m writing well ahead of whats appearing I type a message and it appears a min later ..horrible delay twixt keyboard and screen print

    This blog decended into farce again because of the mutiples Toonsend keeps creating . what an idiot.

  • 14 Ibizatoon // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:24 PM

    Online…Sounds a right pain. You may need to leave off of those “sites” you use for a while?

    It really is an odd way to go about things. Everyone enjoys a laugh, but that sort of thing is totally stupid and ruins what is still a great platfrom for Toon fans, all over the world.

    I still maintain that Ed gets paid to keep all these loonies in one place. I’d hate to think what I might be up to if I wasn’t on here 🙂

  • 15 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:27 PM

    firebug – no -courts on sit Mondays to Fridays – certainly not at weekends.

  • 16 Hail Wor Ashley // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:33 PM

    Given we’re working on the basis of all the money the club makes is available to improve the club, why would anyone want ticket prices slashing? Might only be £5m extra per annum if they didn’t cut prices, but it all helps, on principle fans can’t complain about investment if they’re not willing to do their bit. Isn’t that what everybody wants, the best team possible on the field with fan input?

    NUFC is already one of the cheapest tickets in the league.

    Imagine if the fans owned the club like so many desire. There’d be free tickets and a load of back slapping, despite no contribution from the fans pocket!

  • 17 Online Guy // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:36 PM

    Hello Tuff

    Ibiza Aye dodgy sites would not dare ! its Bad enough on ED’s site here ..Some dodgy adverts on here at times IM going to reboot

  • 18 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:43 PM

    Online – evening how’s things.

  • 19 magscar // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:43 PM

    Online Guy

    before paranoia breaks out

    Big Archie has from a quick search on site being posting since at least Jan 15. Pro Ashley perhaps but not proven as a Mackem or a WUM. May be a sleeper of course.

    Not defending him or his posts but please don’t get Blog overexcited again unless it is clearly necessary

  • 20 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:47 PM

    Seen a strange thing regarding Adam Nonce-on…
    Apparently, the makems were NOT ALLOWED to suspend him because he was not yet proven guilty, but I have also read that they now could be FINED for playing him. I know it’s the makems, but that isn’t fair.

  • 21 Essex Geordie Bill // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:49 PM

    Online guy

    I was having the same problem till I switched to using Google Chrome. can actually type as I think and less frayed nerves.

  • 22 Tsunki // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:51 PM

    Hail @15 yeah that’s likely why not go hyperbole and say ‘free’ tickets. By ” fans doing their bit” are you saying they should stump up what they can in match day tickets to help the club finances? Hmm. Not while the TV money is pouring in and Mike thinks it’s not worth charging for ground ads. Oh and don’t forget match day catering draws a lot more money than it used to. No, I think the ticket prices could come down no problemo, it won’t affect player transactions one little bit.

  • 23 Essex Geordie Bill // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:52 PM

    Do I sense a slight up swelling of approval for Mr Ashley.

    Might he yet still get the freedom of the City. 🙂

  • 24 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:54 PM

    EGB

    Now thats going a bit far. He’ll do well to get the freedom of his own back garden without the risk of flying faeces!

  • 25 Essex Geordie Bill // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:57 PM

    It appears that our esteemed PM wants there to be fans on the boards of clubs.

    Would we nominate someone from this blog and if so who?

  • 26 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:59 PM

    EGB

    My vote goes to good old Ketsbaia!! Just to see what crazyness he could create in the board room!

  • 27 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:59 PM

    Of course i mean the blogger, Ketsbaia9, not the real one 😀

  • 28 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 6:59 PM

    Tuff

    Thanks for the info mate.

    So if they wanted to (I don’t think they will) Johnson could play against Man U on Saturday. After all he is contracted to them.

    I don’t think the Makems can be find for playing him, as he has been denying his guilt right up until today, when he decided he would try for a shorter sentence with an early guilty plea on the two main charges.

  • 29 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    fined*

  • 30 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:02 PM

    Firebug,

    Yeah that sounds fair and makes sense, probably just over zealous toon-fans wanting an excuse to blame the sunderland fans for something thats down to a sick b@stard.

  • 31 21st Century Schizoid Man // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:02 PM

    YCMIU

    Yep my vote goes to Kets too.
    Despite his sometimes crazy lists for transfers – the analysis behind it is usually pretty near the mark.

  • 32 The Diamond dogs hoojars // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:02 PM

    Essex Bill, the dye has been cast for Big Mike, if we loose the next two games just see the reaction on here for starters, I will day he has backed up his statement of last year, he has spent very decent money, it’s up to those faces he has employed to pull us out of the brown stuff.

  • 33 Hail Wor Ashley // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:03 PM

    Nah, tickets have been very fairly priced here for a long time. Very affordable. Even if it’s £3-5m per annum collectively, it’s still an unnecessary reduction in spending power. Why, so you can buy some junk with the extra £100 a year you save? I see where your priorities are – not NUFC!

  • 34 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:04 PM

    21st

    Yeah, the players he wanta would usually be great signings, but are often totally out of reach for the toon 😀

  • 35 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:05 PM

    YCMIU

    Yep Kets gets my vote too, god help us but I would not wish Ashley, Charnley or Carr on any of the rest of you.

    On Johnson, he has admitted grooming and sexual activity with an under age girl and he still gets bailed! What’s that all about?

  • 36 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:20 PM

    Evening all,

    I said this morning we should be lowering tickets

    Johnson should not be allowed near a football pitch again

  • 37 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    Haha

    Liverpool scrap the £77 ticket plans

  • 38 Tsunki // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    Hail – I think fans spend enough on NUFC they’re not some charity case, and sport should be for all. Cheap enough for you may still not be cheap.

  • 39 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:28 PM

    Tsunki

    I agree with you mate, If you have a family of 4 and you want to take in a game, it’s not cheap.

  • 40 Ravensd // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:32 PM

    On johnson: according to Sky Sports, Johnson said the hardest part of being a pedophile was trying to fit in

  • 41 GeordieTwo // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:32 PM

    Spot on Tsunki mate. Get the prices down. Most of the revenue comes from the massive TV contract. Bring the tickets down and let everyone have a chance to see a match or two.

  • 42 GeordieTwo // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:34 PM

    That slight upwelling is a large, infected pimple on Ashley’s bum Essex Geordie. Back away when he gets it lanced……

  • 43 croftus5678 // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:36 PM

    so i’m thinking because of contracts being low ect we would have a great chance of getting these players on the cheapish at the end of the season.

    robin knoche 18mth contract
    nicolas nkoulou 6 mth left
    nathan redmond 18mth
    saido berahino 18mths + a wink
    paul-george ntep 18mth’s
    wissam ben yedder 18mth’s + an nufc following.

  • 44 YoungMagpieFromBurnley // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:36 PM

    Ok, so I have just realised that you can search on the website desktop version. So I decided to search my previous names and realised that I first contributed on may 22nd 2014, I thought it was earlier to be honest. No suprise I saw the real Welsh when looking through. Anyway, feel free to look yourselves if you still feel I’m a wum… I haven’t trolled once on any username-except this one which I apologised for. I know you’re all sick of this troll malarkey but I just want to clear my name.

    My usernames:-

    Barnoldswickmag
    NUFCJackW
    IrishGeordie9
    Youngmagpiefromburnley
    LlortMuw

    Note:- I can’t switch between these, the only one I can is LlortMuw because I changed the screen name from that.

    So there you guys go, I’ve come clean and I’m honest.

  • 45 Ravensd // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:37 PM

    Personally I’d rather pay more if the money went directly to the club. 5m could buy us backup in defense or pay the yearly salary of a top manager. Rather see fewer games of a better team than a whole season of the dross weve been served in recent years

  • 46 YoungMagpieFromBurnley // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:38 PM

    Ravensd

    That’s hilarious. 🙂

  • 47 GeordieTwo // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:42 PM

    Well all right then. I’ll come clean as well. Here is a list of my other user names:
    Mike’sInfectedBum
    TheToothFairy’sGammyLeg
    Gutterballs
    Harrumph. There, I feel better already…..

  • 48 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:43 PM

    G2
    Hahaha pmsl

  • 49 GeordieTwo // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:44 PM

    A lot of you have been asking “Do we actually have a chance to reach 15th place G2?” Well…… Harrumph, you’ve all seen Attack Plan Z now. It’s obvious we’re on a wild ride to 15th place…. Huzzah!!!!

  • 50 GeordieTwo // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:45 PM

    Have to go now mates…..

  • 51 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 7:54 PM

    What a dirty sod McClean is

  • 52 toontaff2 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:01 PM

    I hope they bang Jimmy Johno up before half-term!

  • 53 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:03 PM

    Firebug – totally different situation now for SUFC after Johnson has pleaded guilty. Before that -bearing in mind the presumption of innocence – SUFC would have been on sticky ground – sacking or suspending him.
    Now that he has confessed to some charges I would suggest that he could be suspended forthwith by SUFC. They may come up with a crock by a press release saying (as his case starts on Friday) that he is concentrating on other matters therefore not in the right frame of mind to play him at the weekend.

    If the PR folk at SUFC have any brains they should suspend him forwith.

    Playing him at the weekend (which I doubt) would result in a maelstrom of bad publicity.

  • 54 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:03 PM

    What’s this with Johnson I hear? What are we talking about here – a 17 year old or some of the really unforgivable stuff?

  • 55 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:04 PM

    forwith = forthwith

  • 56 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:05 PM

    Well said Tuff agree with you

    Jesper she was under 16

  • 57 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:05 PM

    jesper – it’s sex with an under 16 year old – plus grooming for sex.

  • 58 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:07 PM

    Ched Evans was rightly ostracized and Johnson should get the same if not worse treatment

  • 59 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:11 PM

    The club should be given credit for reducing ticket prices for kids and keeping football affordable for fans, who already pay substantial amounts for tv subscriptions. I imagine, unlike Liverpool, NUFC is succeeding in striking the right note among fair minded fans.

  • 60 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:14 PM

    Tuff / Chancel

    That’s what Iv’e been saying, and if he is guilty and he is why is he not on remand till the dirty tw@ is sentenced, I know he has a trial for the two charges he has denied, but he’s guilty of the worst two, should be locked up now.

  • 61 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:15 PM

    Firebug

    agree with ya mate, he should not be able to play and certainatly should be out of site whilst trial is ongoing

  • 62 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:17 PM

    Firebug

    any other job he’d be out on his ear, Johnson should be sacked with gross misconduct

  • 63 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:18 PM

    firebug – they must believe that he is not a flight risk -well known/millionaire/lives at mansion x etc etc.
    If it was Joe Bloggs the local bin man I suspect treatment might be different.

  • 64 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:19 PM

    Tuff

    Fair point he’s well known

  • 65 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:20 PM

    Chancel / Senor Tuff…so it’s the unforgivable stuff! A bit creepy 🙁

  • 66 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:20 PM

    Jesper

    very much so

  • 67 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:21 PM

    It will be an interesting case -must be some twist to it.

  • 68 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:22 PM

    Tuff

    What kind of twist?

    He’s admitted 2 of the 4 charges, still makes him a sicko

  • 69 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:23 PM

    Aye if it was joe blogs he would have been locked up while awaiting trial, and then if found innocent all he would get is a free to go having spent several months locked up.

    It’s disgusting when you look at the difference.

    I wonder if any money will change hand leading to testimonies being withdrawn? Ok maybe that was too cynical.

  • 70 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:24 PM

    Firebug

    He’s no Michael Jackson!

  • 71 mindshaft // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:25 PM

    so he’s admitted grooming and having sex but denied the other two charges – surely he shouldn’t be on bail if he’s admitted grooming and having sex … pretty sure a normal peado would be in nick already

  • 72 21st Century Schizoid Man // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:26 PM

    YMFB @ 43

    Good for you. Didn’t know you were LlortMuw.
    I posted my previous names a coulpe of threads back.

    You only ever posted under one name at a time I guess ?
    The issue over multiples is the dialogues the same person appears to have had with himself. Doesn’t bother me, but the proof is there and it is quite sad really.

    I’m with Shearer on ticket prices – there should be no increases at all. It is one area where the club are a bit more aware, and any cut in entrance has to be applauded. Pity we can’t get it to the Bundesligue level of prices. Isn’t the average about a tenner ?

  • 73 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:26 PM

    Midshaft

    According to sky he’s admitted Grooming and touching her up.

    Still should be on remand like

  • 74 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:27 PM

    I don’t get it. Doug Richard of Dragons Den fame admitted to having sex with a 13 y.o. girl but denies knowing she was that age. Why should it make a difference whether or not he knew or could have known? He and Johnson are paedophiles and should be banged up. Johnson’s career should be over.

  • 75 mindshaft // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:27 PM

    watching west brom game – jeez they are worse than the weekend – Berahino looks worth 20k max , wouldn’t be surprised if they join the relegation battle soon – they look woeful

  • 76 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:29 PM

    Blackley

    You are 100% correct, well said

  • 77 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:29 PM

    My mate (a Makem) has been telling me that he gave him the benefit of the doubt, but is now sick to think that all these months he has been playing for them he has been lying about his guilt, while earning a nice little nest egg.

    One of the few who says he feels betrayed, and wonders how much his club actually knew.

    I started to feel sorry for him, but recovered quickly, after all he is a makem.

  • 78 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:33 PM

    firebug…and you are still friend with him 😉 lol

  • 79 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:35 PM

    Firebug

    If the club knew of Johnsons guilt then the club should be brought to answer to the FA

  • 80 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:38 PM

    jesper

    He’s a decent lad will do owt for anyone, just lacks intelligence when choosing a football team.

    Chancel

    I’m not sure if it was the same for all ST holders but this season my season ticket was actually about £35 cheaper than last season despite the fact I’m on the fixed price DD deal!

  • 84 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:53 PM

    On the ticket prices I think our club have been pretty decent over all, Ok if being a bit cynical, and I am, you could say they reduce the prices to fill the stadium, but so what; if it allows people a chance to watch a game that they normally couldn’t afford it’s a good thing.

    Where I do have some trouble with it, is these offers started to happen after long time ST holder were driven from the club, and yes I did say driven, the singing section broke up, the football embarrassing, Posters confiscated, fans removed for peaceful protesting etc etc.

    The price of tickets for normal fans has been frozen but not reduced, again being cynical I would say that is because the club would rather have quiet peaceful families fill the stadium rather than those nasty hard core supporters who will kick up a fuss if the club continue to fcuk up………and they will!

  • 85 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 8:55 PM

  • 88 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 9:05 PM

    firebug – it’s not so long ago that these types of cases never saw the light of day. A lot were “resolved” by giving the bloke a caution. The Cops have been criticised for misusing the caution process.
    He’s coughed to a couple of charges yet denied similar ones. You would assume if he’s admitted to the unlawful sex he’s acknowledged her knew that she was under 16. So you would think he could not use that as a defence – unless the charge he’s denying preceeded the one he has admitted – ie he found out later her age.

    Slightly unusual as well for the lass to give evidence I would have thought. I suspect if she turns up the defence will probably have a no holds barred attitude.

    Don’t know exactly what the grooming offence is – one I’ve just been reading about is lethal – not many get outs – meeting a child following sexual grooming – and ten years max in the pokey.

    Somebody mentioned 13 year old earlier – sex with an under 14 year old carries a maximum of life in the pokey.

  • 93 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 9:15 PM

    Tuff

    So the grooming charge carries more than the under age sex charge?

    Of cause grooming would take place before contact and sexual activity. Therefore if he is grooming her he would know her age or at lease have some idea, he has admitted to sexual activity so I presume he is denying intercourse, if so I don’t think he will get that passed the jury.

    If he admits to intercourse but claims consensual then it become statutory rape, if he denies intercourse but gets found guilty they will throw the book at him.

    Not sure if all that is correct mate, so feel free to put it right.

    I am trying to if firebug just forget the whole thing and move on.

  • 185 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:14 PM

    So basically you apologise mean nothing, you are therefore a liar, there was only one other person who thought like you, and when you say “forget about it ffs”; you mean you don’t want me to say anything and just let you prattle on?

    It’s not the first time welshie and it won’t be the last.

    Have a good night bonny lad.

    Once again I apologise to the blog.

    For me the whole thing is now forgotten mate, and I will engage with you if you want, but as long as you refrain from calling myself and other bloggers names like Pr*cks and Clowns etc.

    In banter it fine but not in the derogatory fasion you usually use.

    Now hows that?

  • 189 jane // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:21 PM

    West Brom have played 4 FA cup matches (2 replays) and haven’t won a league match in that time so maybe it is affecting their league form in which case long may their cup involvement continue.

  • 190 welshgeordie9 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:22 PM

    You know what i couldn’t care if you meant it or not, such a bloody drama queen, don’t call me a liar either trying to turn the tables.

    Deep breathing just makes me light headed lol.

  • 195 expatmag // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:28 PM

    Welshie

    The fact that you were going to bed half an hour ago and yet despite Firebug admitting to ending the discussion, as you originally wanted, you are still online, venting like an old chook.

    And you call Firebug a drama queen!!!!!!!

    Not only Heat…..Kitchen spring to mind here but Pot…..Kettle also.

  • 196 welshgeordie9 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:29 PM

  • 198 welshgeordie9 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:31 PM

  • 199 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:33 PM

    jane/jib – so I would deduce from your answer that Ed has banned jib/jane.

    Ed is playing a scorcher at the minute.

  • 203 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:38 PM

    Chancel

    Yeah I know mate, me too when I walk I rattle lol.

    So anyway WBA through, (I was going to say all this earlier) to the next round, and playing poorly, Norwich already dropped below us, things may not be as bad as they seemed.

    Chances of survival are looking better.

  • 204 jane // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:38 PM

    Mister Tuff do you think I am Ed?

  • 205 expatmag // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:39 PM

    No worries mate. Now then. Who can we pick on next??????

    Chancel?…..bah. he is Ok

  • 206 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:40 PM

    Firebug

    WBA look poor
    Norwich look hopless

  • 207 welshgeordie9 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:40 PM

    Take A Chancel On Me

    Believe it or not but I don’t come on here just to ruffle some feathers, might seem like it but to be honest I don’t really like arguing but when i have to then i will.

  • 208 BandB // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:40 PM

  • 214 welshgeordie9 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:43 PM

    Right now that everyone’s happy now i am off.

    Goodnight all.

  • 215 expatmag // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:45 PM

    Firebug

    Touch and go

    We really need to beat Bournemouth Swansea, Palace and Sunderland at home…..Norwich and Villa away. I cannot see all that happening so we will need to rely on others helping us out too by beating our rivals

  • 216 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:47 PM

    np welshie

    Chancel

    Palace are in one of those Pardew freefalls, that will never ever happen again, because he is such a good manager and was only poor here because of all us nasty fans.

    Here’s a good question, Will we finish above palace?

    I’m not sure but it’s possible.

  • 217 expatmag // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:48 PM

    I feel WBA will get pulled into it. Their next three league fames are Everton away Palace home Leicester away. The way they are playing, I xant see them getting much there

  • 218 BandB // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:48 PM

    Ever so slightly expat, and it’s been bloody cold here too.
    How you must miss the gritters.
    I’m going to zonk out now.

  • 219 Take A Chancel On Me // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:48 PM

    Firebug
    it is a distinct possibility

  • 220 expatmag // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:50 PM

    Ok Band…take care and in answer to your question

    No. Never…….lol…..keep warm

  • 221 jane // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:50 PM

    don’t want to leave it till the last game this time as Spurs quite likely will have something to play for.

  • 222 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:52 PM

    Expat

    Aye mate it’s a big ask, but we now have the players, we need good leadership, tactics and consistency, If we can get it together we should be ok.

  • 223 firebug666 // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:55 PM

    jane

    I’m quietly confident we will know our fate by then, and Spurs are beatable.

  • 224 Mister Tuff // Feb 10, 2016 at 11:58 PM

    jane – not at all – are you jib.
    Do you think Ed has rid us of the scumbags.

    Can you do a Google searched and interpret it properly -thereby giving an accurate answer.

    Do you know anything about grammar – Spanish grammar and wrongly using the second person imperative of the infinitive ganar to try and trick us into believing it was a colloquial noun used by young Spaniards to mean “a win”.
