I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

Who wants to go to the match, but due to circumstances possibly can't afford to go ...

The only catch is, i'd prefer it to be a regular poster on here if at all possible because of the nature of the offer ...

My offer is that I'll buy you a ticket ... I want the ground to be as full as possible ... And if I can help add another number to the gate, then I'd be happy to do so ...

So if you genuinely want to go on Saturday but haven't got enough pocket money, or whatever, post on here with your reason and I'll pick someone ...

Don't worry - You don't have to sit with me - You'll be in the cheapest seats [:D] ...

Dont need any names, there must be someone who wants to go to the game and treat their kids but cant afford to shell out for 3 or 4 tickets. Its nothing to be ashamed or embarrased about, hundereds of other blokes will be in the same position around Teesside.

I can't go for obvious reasons...but my old man is a supporter but can't make it after been laid off from the steel works at skinningrove about 10 years ago...hasn't been able find work since due to his age (he was 64 last Tues). When I am over I pay for his tickets, and take along my nephew(16), my aunt(62) and my 2 cousins(both 14)...now I am sure he would love to go with them, depending on how many tickets are offered...and it would be a geat surprise for him and the kids.

As far as I'm concerned, that's as good a reason as any ... We currently have 4 tickets (Myself, JLinardi, Benidorm2Boro and Woody) and I'd be quite happy to do that ...

I'm sure one more person would like to chip in for a 5th ticket and the others are in agreement then I'd love to help [^]

Do you 3 agree with that ... ?

2 Adults @ £23 = 46
3 U18s @ £18 = 39
Total = 85

Between 5 people that would be £17 each ... If we can get one more who is willing to do this then I'd go with it, as long as you were happy with that ...

We could all chip in for the 5th ticket if nobody else wants to, unless munich_mike wants to pay for it.

Very nice and well done. Do you remember a while back some rich bloke (possibly a mentalist to boot) was reported to have bought 25,000 Boro tickets and given them away at Mc D's ? Maybe I imagined it.

I'm not after any personal thanks MrsT but thanks anyway LoL ...

I've noticed Murton Reds post up above - Murton I personally would be happy to see you benefit from the other four or five who've said they'd donate ...

What I thinks fair is that if they all also donate £17 per person then any additional left over we can possibly donate to a charitable cause?

If everyones happy with that we can discuss a charity and I'll post proof of donation etc ...

With the other guys giving £17 there should be 80 odd quid, more than enough for a couple more people to get along there!

What a difference a new manager makes! Boro fans helping other Boro fans, cant imagine anything like this even just a couple of days ago. I just hope the match is a good one [xx(]

RavanelliGoal! Posted on 26/10/2010 21:41
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

Right. I would love to be at the game on Saturday but really can't afford to go. I'm 22 at uni and just lost my job (through no fault of my own). Today I moved house as my girlfriend is 6 months pregnant and couldn't live in a top floor flat. I used all my student loan plus savings and final pay packet to pay for the move as they wanted 3 months rent upfront. I had to give up my season ticket due to money problems. I'm sat in my new flat on the floor as I couldn't afford a settee just yet. I don't get 'daddy's money' i have worked ever since I was able to get a job. So with all the stress of the house move, the anxiety of being a father and the worry of money (or lack of it) cheering on the boro on Saturday would be fantastic.

I haven't read the other posts so if there's a much more worthy reason already been said I apologise

Synthonia1 Posted on 26/10/2010 22:41
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

Rav, I am sure there will be sufficient left over to get you a ticket.

In relation to your furniture issue, we have just ordered a new suite, and you are welcome to our old one if you want it, however it will not be available until just before christmas.

Let me know and if you live in the locality I will arrange to get it dropped off.

Bloody hell synthonia I don't know what to say to that. Brilliant gesture. Yeh that would be great if possible. Yeh I live local.

And did you mean I would have money left for a ticket out of student loan, Savings and my final pay? I really wish I could say I do, but theres loads to get for the baby and I'm quickly realising just how expensive some things are. Anytime I have a little I do get myself there though, was at forest last Tuesday and paying the price for it now haha.

Feel like abit of a scruff publicly saying the price of a ticket is out of my reach. Haha

Sorry if I it read that way Rav, I was saying that there should be money left out of the donations to get you a ticket.

And if not Towell has now said he would get you a ticket[^]

I'm up there this weekend anyway and will be at the game. If there's a pre match pish up on i'll join that too.

Cheers lads ...

Right, Basically this is the top and bottom of the situation so far (In typical QS style I've knocked up a spreadsheet [:D][^]) ...

We have 16 willing donators now (Again, doesn't have to be for a fixed amount - anything you can give will help) ...

We have enough now for tickets for:

MunichMike (x5)
Murton_Red (x2)

As soon as some of the other donations have cleared, next in line is

Cooper (x1)
RavanelliGoal (x1)

With still the potential for another few tickets on top as and when the other donations come through ...

SO: If anyone else is interested in putting your name down for a ticket stick it on the thread and we'll hopefully get it sorted ...

Maybe if someone has been a little bit too happy of late, and they need bringing back down to earth with a bump and a day at the Riverside to depress them a little [:D]

I've noticed when you say you're going to buy someone a ticket,it always sounds better than when you say you will give it to them.
On facebook I was trying to actually give a ticket away for free,I know it sounds daft but If I told people I was going to buy them a ticket it probably would have entised them more.

I would be very grateful of a few tickets if they are going? Even 1 would be a massive help. Had to give my season ticket up this year because I couldn't afford it anymore. Been going to the odd game when I do have a bit of extra cash.

What you are doing is fantastic.spirit of 86 style

Hi PP and all.

What a great gesture by you and all the other contributors. If you have enough in the pot when everyone else is sorted out, I have 2 kids that I would love to take to the game. I haven't worked for several years now due to illness, and I take my son (age 11) when I can afford to,and have a daughter age 7 that has only been to reserve matches up to now, and would love to take her to the Riverside, and let's face it this Saturday's game should have a wonderful atmosphere so would be a terrific one to take her to. I was going to post earlier and ask, but felt a bit embarrased, but my kids would love to go, so (gulp!), pride now swallowed!

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

Right ... I've just had an update from Layabout Boro and he has kindly donated the 3 tickets allocated to him to someone else, due to the fact that he now has three tickets from elsewhere [^]

So basically ...

We will have enough now for 9 more tickets (4 Adults and 5 Kids) so if you want them, let me know ...

There maybe more tickets but I'm working on the fact that there'll be no more donations now from those that have said they will this afternoon / tomorrow so I can keep it tidy ...

Also, if anyone has any suggestions on what to do with any remaining money that we have left over, I'm open to offers ...

In the event that we get all the donations in we might even have £100 in the kitty to donate to a local charity if everyone is in agreement ...

Let me know what you think ...

Hello again all.

I have just been on the phone to my brother-in-law (lives in London), and he is having a rare vistit up here this weekend to go to the match because of the return of Mogga! Anyway, he wants to take me and the kids to the game, so the money you set aside for tickets for us can now go towards tickets for someone else.

I can't thank you enough for the gesture, let's hope we get a great crowd, a great result and get Mogga's reign off to a great start!

You Could save alot of money and possibly get a few more tickets if you go for the U18 option? i went to the leeds game with the missus (21 & 19) and used 2 U18's.. the upside being that there arent turnstile operators anymore to check, just the scanners. in which case it makes it easier to get cheaper tickets and not worry about not getting into the ground.. just a thought? xxx[^]

I understand what you're saying, however I wouldn't want somebody to have the embarrassment of being stopped on the way in ...

I'm working on the basis of £26 Adults and £13 U18s ...

I'm doing it like this because I don't want to allow £23 for Adults in case I an't get them all on Friday, especially as they're not selling the South East corner anymore ...

I'd rather make sure it's done properly ...

Linardi ... I know but it's just the logistical side of it ...

I'm not going to know how much we have left until Friday really, and the school would need to arrange someone to go to the game with the kids ...

I'm open to offers and whatever you all feel is the best then great, but I'm just thinking from the point of view that basically this time tomorrow, I really need to have all the money, and all the names for tickets ... I will be buying them on Friday afternoon when the Schools are closed!

If it turns out that there's £150 left [:O] then there may be more want tickets ...

I just don't know what the implications would be with giving it to a school ...

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

its a good idea to give it to the school, but with you getting the tickets on a friday and giving them out on a saturday, its a bit short notice for a school to make an announcement that theres free tickets going courtesy of boro fans. and as for the saving money thing, thats fine was just throwing an idea in the hat bud =]. btw.. whats with that PauloSa guy.. [rle] dropped on his head multiple times as a baby by the looks of it xxxx

I suppose its a good point, they would have to do all the permission slips etc possibly a bit of faffing on your part aswell. Could be an option for the match next Saturday though, £150 would buy a good handful of tickets.

Tuncay_alves_ftw Posted on 27/10/2010 15:17

Pink Ponce Do it they way you want it doing,
the school kids idea to me is as you say a non starter. Older people who really follow the boro should be the ones to benifit

PinkPonce Posted on 27/10/2010 15:19
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

How about donating it to Gary Parkinsons wifes fundraising efforts ... ?

I think that would be quite a fitting end to the week given that this whole thing was brought about by Mowbrays return and the whole 1986 thing ...

As I said, I'm open to whatever people think ...

JLinardi Posted on 27/10/2010 15:23
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

I think its a bit unfair raglasher. Im just going off from when I was 11/12. Never got to go to games because my dad was always working and nobody else would take me. If someone had came into my school then with a handful of free tickets I would have been over the moon [^]

I know what you mean about the older fans who were there through the 86 Mowbray period who would love to see his return but cant. How could we get all those tickets to those older fans though, who I doubt will be on the internet?

PinkPonce Posted on 27/10/2010 15:27
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

If anyone who has donated would be against any left over cash being donated to Gary Parkinsons wife to aid her fundraising please let me know on here ...

Obviously, the basis of all the donations was to get as many fans as possible to the game, and it's snowballed now ...

We currently can give another 9 tickets away with what we've got already, and potentially a few more when others pay who have said ...

I'd just like to gauge opinion ...

nor_mate Posted on 27/10/2010 15:30
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

the charity idea is a great way of using the left over money Ponce, but I'd also think about hanging on to the money and using it next week to help people get to the Palace game, who may not have the chance to go on Saturday?

PinkPonce Posted on 27/10/2010 15:42
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

I unfortunately think the school thing is out of the question ... Because of logistics

The best options are to perhaps roll it over into next week or Gary Parkinson ...

PinkPonce Posted on 27/10/2010 16:02
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

Right ... I'm off home shortly ...

Basically the top and bottom of it is this ...

(1) Thanks to everyone who has donated or said they are tonight / tomorrow ...

(2) There are now 10 more tickets available to someone if they'd like them ... Just post your age and how many you want (i.e for your son etc) ...

(3) It looks like we will have some £ available over and above these 9 tickets SO; whilst I appreciate it if anyone else wants to donate on top of those who are already, it might be worthwhile waiting until we decide what we're going to do with it ... Basically, I don't want you to donate for a ticket for someone, when it might not go to full use on Saturday - if that makes sense ...

So thanks to everyone so far, but perhaps wait and see what happens before any more donations [^]

(4) In the likelyhood that we get the 30 tickets in total, and still have a chunk of cash left, we'll decide collectively what we want to do ...

10 tickets ... First come first served [^]

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

basically after yesterdays euphoria, PP said he'd buy a ticket for anyone who said they would love to go but couldn't afford it

a coupe of dozen (by the sounds of it) thought it was a generous offer and they matched it

so to date about 20 people who wouldn't have been able to go on Sat are now going an it looks like there'll be a few quid left over for a donation to a charity if noone else comes forward to say yes, i'd love a ticket but cant afford one

that's about the long and short of it i think

Anybody4abeer Posted on 27/10/2010 17:06

PP, this is an amazing gesture... I would love to go infact been trying to make up a few quid to go. But I don't think i'll come close!

Basically in an outs are my partner fell ill and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Because she couldn't work her pay was stopped after 28 weeks when we have to manage on my income which isn't the best obviously. Working overtime, late night etc but it's just the thing you got to do to get by.

Like I say I would love to go, but if I have left it too late that is understandable. I will still be listening with pride to the Boro.

But as you say keeping on top of it will be really hard! So charity might be a good thing.

Unless you can put it out there for other fans to see that you have tickets available for people that cant afford a ticket

I'm not usually PPs biggest fan on here mainly due to his borderline OCD attention seeking and nauseatingly contrived narcissism...BUT, credit where it's due.
What looks like started off as another attention seeking gesture has genuinely caught the imagination of the good people of FMTTM and credit to him, PP has rolled with it.
Everyones a winner. A few dozen punters that wouldn't have gone, will probably go to the game on Saturday and our mate Mr Ponce gets a bit of spotlight!

Well done to all involved.

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

I think if there is any left over it should go to a charity, pref a boro charity i.e. Finlay Cooper or Parky, i think as a gesture it has captured the imagination and made a tight ar$e like me part with money although the logistics of carrying it off for another week and also diluting the effect maybe not worthwhile, i'm sure when PP started this is was because Mogga was coming home and he wanted someone who could not go to have the chance to witness the home coming so taking it to another week kind of goes against the point, i really hope the people who have got the tickets enjoy themselves and i hope everyone in a position who would like to go but cant uses this oppertunity as i think we would all prefer all tickets to go

And of course sing your hearts out like i wil be doing

Fair do's PP - good on you mate.

Now I've seen a better side of you, I'll dose up on the salt prior to clicking on another inappropriately capitalised thread title!
I'm all for giving people the benefit of the doubt and with this effort, you've at last proved you deserve it.

The simplest ideas are the best & you've defo sparked something off with this.

MFC - are you listening? There are Boro fans out there who want to go to the match. Sort your pricing policy out with a view to filling the ground!

I think the least the club could do is show it to the high earning players and make them realise what this club Means to some fans and how if they are given hope they will respond. We have been sold short on commitment from the charly big potatoes on the pitch lately now is their time to show us something back. I am not a regular but will go next sat as I call in on my journey north home. This is as good as a local club gets all who can pulling together again well done all who have contributed! :)

I think rolling it over onto next week would as you say dilute the effect. Its worked out like this because of Mowbray returning, I think if it was ever done again it should be a special occasion game say if we had to win to get promoted or something. It just makes the game on Saturday that bit more special for some people.

If you've emailed the club then they should pounce on this.

It's a great opportunity to sell an extra 30 odd tickets and get new fans into the ground. They should offer to take over the organisation of this and continue it as long as people are willing to donate.

That's 31 tickets allocated, and we're upto the maximum now based on cleared funds ...

Layabout & RavanelliGoal kindly donated there tickets back after being able to attend the game through other means ...

So far I've received over £600 from everyone who's donated [^] ...

There are some funds which remain uncleared in paypal, but that's not an issue - they should be cleared by 3rd November ...

We've managed to get all the tickets allocated, and it's likely that we will have an amount left to discuss early next week, I just don't want to now guarantee someone else a ticket, without being able to promise it ...

SO, I'll deal with the 31 tickets and I think we should leave the rest to next week ... ?

Would MFC do a deal with you PP.

What about suggesting that for every ticket purchased they give you one for next Saturday free and that you will donate all surplus monies to Teesside Hospice for whom they are doing a bucket collection on Saturday.

You could then give 2 tickets to each of those attending on Saturday and you would not have to worry about the rest of the cash.

The club are not losing out as the people attending would not otherwise be buying a ticket for next week and everybody is happy.

Job sorted?

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

I think it is great that the club have recognised this and hope they do give you a discount on these tickets.
They should take this further though, and I for one would be willing to contribute again if the club were to take this up, and I really think they should, as it gets straight to the core of the problems around teeside and the club ...ie hard times in the area, flagging support, their PR gaffes, etc, by also utilising some of the POSITIVE aspects of the area, namely the heart of supporters in wanting to help those others less fortunate, giving a sense of belonging to something good, a genuine kindness that affects everyone around, not only those involved and this all covered in this one gesture..
It's part of the intangible thing that comes of being a Boro supporter, a small club in Europe, and what Mogga is part of and was alluding to in his return speeches..hence the chord it struck with us all.
...and it would be a good start in building back the bridges!

Well done all...and PP for starting it all off, and carrying it through

Up The Boro!!

Thanks [^] ...

Right - Quick Update:

I'm waiting on 2 donations from people who have confirmed via email and who's donation has been taken into consideration ...

Once these 2 are done, I think it's best to not accept any more donations for the time being ...

I've had contact this moring from someone who wants to remain anonymous regarding tickets for 4 people who he wants to arrange to go and he has provided the funds direct to ensure these 4 can go so that means (once they get in touch) we have arranged for 35 tickets ...

The reason I don't want to accept any more donations at this time is because I know we're going to have money remaining, and there are still donations pending in PayPal from overseas ...

I'd rather wait to see what we have left, be it £100, £200 or whatever, and then collectively agree the next step ...

I don't want someone to donate now for a ticket, when it may get donated to a charity if we've not got much left ...

Hope that makes sense, and doesn't offend anyone interested in helping out ... I suppose I'm just asking you to hold back for the time being in order that I can just sort things out tonight with where I am ...

PinkPonce Posted on 28/10/2010 15:45
I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

AndyR,

Thanks for the offer mate ... Basically, because of the logistics of it, everyone who has applied for tomorrow I've been able to sort a ticket for ...

There's going to be some money left after tomorrow (could be £20, could be £200 depending on what happens with the club and the discount they've said they can give with prices for me, and also there's some outstanding paypal donations which haven't cleared until 3rd Nov) so I don't want to encourage any more donations just yet, until we know exactly what we're going to do with the remainder of the money ...

I don't feel it right to take the additional money until I can guarantee it will go on tickets, rather than a charity, as that's the intention behind your donation ...

In the event that we do indeed have a decent chunk of money left in the pot come Saturday night, we can perhaps spend that and any additional donations on a few more tickets for Palace at home ... Or, with more time, perhaps get a local school or community project involved by donating all the tickets to them, as has been mentioned earlier in the thread ...

Obviously a donation would then be welcomed mate ...

I hope that makes sense ... [^][:D] ... ?

Am a pensioner aged 63.I am a Boro prider who has been to most home games this season.I was a season ticket holder for several years until i retired and could no longer afford it. Going through a very difficult time at present, have my daughter and grandson staying with me due to personal reasons and am devastated that i cannot afford to go to this saturday's match to see the return of our beloved Mogga! I would dearly love to take my daughter and grandson on Saturday to cheer us up.I have tried my luck at Ramsdens but i dont think the £4.50 they offered for my gold is going to be much help.

Easy post to start, but i imagine a difficult one to finish, you should feel a warm sense of pride come 3pm Saturday. As all the other contributors should.
I hope the players have heard about this one as one week of their wages could give a stadium full of supporters a ticket.
I will keep an eye for your next post-athon and will join in that one, if i can.

I think the best gesture the club can do, is rather than discount the tickets, is match the same amount of tickets as giveaways for palace match, as the whole purpose is filling the ground, right?

Just been to the ground and got the tickets ... Middlesbrough Football Club have been fantastic, they've bettered the Boro Pride prices and provided a big discount (approx £300 left in the pot) so next week is a go-er ...

I had the pleasure of meeting Neil Bausor and he was full of praise for everyone who has been involved and said that the club genuinely appreciates it ...

I've now got 36 tickets for everyone [^]

I left a copy of the full thread in the main entrance and asked if possible it can be taken upstairs to show people exactly what the club means to fans and teessiders all over the world ...

I also enquired about the possibility of getting a community project backed by MFC involved next week with some kids tickets etc so I can follow that up next week ...

Also, there is possibly going to be something on the official website tonight or tomorrow ...

I'm absolutely exhausted ha ha but thanks to everyone who has helped out - it's made a massive difference, and if your in any doubt that the club is not appreciative of everyones support then let this post convince you otherwise ...

See you all tomorrow for a well earned pint ... [^]

I've GOT a GENUINE OFFER for SOMEONE for SATURDAY ...

My boyfriend is absolutely gutted to be missing out on attending the match today. He is the most loyal fan that I have ever known, but having recently moved down to the South West for family reasons without a job to come to, we could simply not afford the money for transport up to Middlesbrough, let alone a pair of tickets. Instead he will be glued to his laptop listening to BBC Tees.

If you were to offer this incredible gesture again for any supporters next week at the Crystal Palace match, I would be sincerely grateful if we could reserve 2 tickets. In return I am going to try to find the petrol money and drive him up (it's a 10 hour round trip!). He is so upset to be missing out on today.

In the mean time, I hope you all enjoy the match today! [ref] PP you have done an amazing thing here, we have been so impressed to read this thread.

To all the lads who made a donation towards tickets today and of course for pp for running with it....enjoyed our day thank you very much....as for the game itself well ive got to ask where the hell the mid field is....dont get me worng their 2nd goal was a cracker no doubt about that.....Bailey is hopeless and should never play again.....didnt think Thompson did a great deal to be honest.......but still i enjoyed it and thats what counts, I take it those noisy burgers up in the SE corner are the red faction...they never stopped chanting from start to finish......I think we should have had about 3 maybe 4 goals in the first half for sure..but it want to be.....so again thanks all and UTB !!!

Hello everyone ...

Right, as mentioned earlier we have some money left over, and we also have had a couple more donations since from people wanting to get involved ... SO we're able to do it again for the Palace game on Saturday!

If anyone wants to donate please do it through pay pal to this email address ... thepinkponce@hotmail.co.uk ...

If you haven't got a pay pal, it takes 5 minutes to set one up so please try and sort it out, as it makes it all much easier for me to keep a track of what's been paid etc ...

I won't have as much access to emails this week, so don't be offended if i don't manage to respond quickly or anything ...

Finally, again if there's anyone who wants a ticket or 2 for Saturday then please post on here and we'll try and sort it out ...

I've already got a donation from CoB for a specific person to attend the game, but if he doesn't take it up then the doner is happy for someone else to take it ...

Again, donations through paypal please and whatever is remaining after this week then I'd like to donate it to a worthwhile cause ...

Cheers

PP..what can I say...my Dad and all the kids had a GREAT time, despite the result, and were really impressed with what you have done..I was getting phone calls from the ground all afternoon from them so I could hear the atmosphere first hand, especially when they first walked out...almost like being there!!
I hear he shook your hand, so please take it as also being from me, until I can do it in person.

And naturally I won't be able to make it this week either, so I am again going to pay for someone to take my place, to shout the house down and get this team moving in the right direction..

Come on Boro!!
