Still wet behind the ears, explain why the well paid military should have a discount over and above the normal fans, who have been supporting Argyle through thick and thin.
Johns explained himself over and over........
The 'well paid military' are not generally Argyle fans. If you were posted to, or studied in Macclesfield, would you part with £20 to watch L2 football? Its difficult enough to do it watching the team you support sometimes!
The issue is how to attract casual supporters
who wouldnt usually support Argyle as they have no affiliation with the club, but the right pricing structure may entice them in. This will fill empty seats, bring some revenue in, and possibly help Argyle widen their fan base. I wouldnt expect these people to become Argyle fans but Argyle may become their second team, and they may start coming more often.
I welcome debate on this subject, and I welcome fresh thinking on broadening Argyles appeal beyond the core fan base.
edited to add: casual football supporters, not necessarily Argyle fans.
