Has the world gone MAD? What's this all about? Are you really desperate to have a big crowd or are you helping people who can't afford to go.

It's weird.

Yes, but if I was buying somebody a ticket, it would be a friend and not somebody off a messageboard who I didn't know.

I'm not having a go. I'm just saying I find it a bit weird and want to know why people are doing it, that's all.

Help people out who have real needs, not just those who fancy popping out to the match and stuffing money into the back-pockets of 20-something millionaires. Let's not pretend this is some true altruistic gesture, eh?

I don't mind being nice. But like I said, I'd only a friend/relative a ticket, not somebody I don't know - especially just to get a stadium relatively full.

All I'm asking is WHY? Why are people willing to buy other people - who may or may not be in work - a ticket?

It's a simple question.

billdoor Posted on 27/10/2010 13:36
All this buying people a ticket lark.

It's hardly going to get the stadium full is it? Would only be a relatively small increase in the crowd.

Saturday has the potential to be a truly historic day for the club - the return of a local man who captained the team, now managing it. The home-coming of somebody who is greatly admired on and off the field across Teesside.

The opportunity to welcome a true hero like that doesn't come along often and I'd be gutted if I couldn't make it. It's a superb gesture to other fans.






Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 27/10/2010 13:36
All this buying people a ticket lark.

I just can't understand why anybody would want to buy somebody they don't know a ticket, just so the stadium will be a bit fuller.

That's just a bit weird to me. If they wanted to go, they'd buy a ticket themselves.

gravyboat Posted on 27/10/2010 13:36
All this buying people a ticket lark.

It's just one of those things that gathers pace. Ponce offered to buy a ticket for someone, and others have matched his offer.

It hasn't been thought about, its not contrived, its just grown organically.

I fail to see the downside.

atomicloonybin Posted on 27/10/2010 13:38
All this buying people a ticket lark.

Must admit I don't really get it either, and I'm with oooo about giving to genuinely needy people, if you've got £25 spare.

I didn't notice a huge clamour to get people into the stadium by buying them tickets a couple of weeks ago when 14,000 or less turned up. It would have made genuinely more sense then rather than now when people are battering the doors down to get in. Or is it suddenly hip again to want to watch the Boro?

If I was in a position to do it, I'd do it, but I'm in the camp that cant really afford it (although I've bought mine).

I think its about a community experience myself and it'll inject some positivity back into the stadium, which it sorely needs.

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 27/10/2010 13:43
All this buying people a ticket lark.

It's not kindness, though. I know it is definitely not kindness. There's something weird about it. People aren't doing this because they're kind - if they were, they'd give that ticket money to people who NEED it, for instance the people of Haiti having to deal with a massive cholera outbreak. Surely they need the money more than Gibson or the club does?

Why are people so willing to give £25 away like that? They're not doing it to be kind, they're doing it so there are more people there and so the ground is as full as possible.

Let's see if this happens in a few months time.

sasboro1 Posted on 27/10/2010 13:43
All this buying people a ticket lark.

the concept is a good idea. but isnt someone getting 5 free tickets out of this. if i was contributing i'd rather the money went to school kids or via a charity for a deprived area.(someone like fairbridge) go through proper channels. there is no way of knowing if they are genuine or will flog the ticket for half price to a mate. but as i'm not contibuting then fair play and give it to who you want to.

No one is asking for you to contribute or like it, if you have an opinion on it then thats fine, but to keep asking Why? is a bit silly.

it is what it is, a kind gesture by those fans that want and can help other fans. there's nothing glorious or fame hunting about it.


Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 27/10/2010 13:47
All this buying people a ticket lark.

Holgate, why weren't they doing this last month, last season, whenever gates have been very low? Why now? It's because of Mowbray.

They want a big crowd there because of Mowbray. There are people in this world who really need charity - people in Teesside who want to watch Boro get beaten are not in that category.

Holgatewall Posted on 27/10/2010 13:50
All this buying people a ticket lark.

As far as I know this is a new idea. Seems reasonable to me that if they want to give a ticket to someone they should be able to do so.

Nobody has made them contribute. As for it being the first game for Mogga so what? Hopefully they will try and create an atmospher that will encouurage these people back.

Personally, I think it's a load of bullsh*t.

They're doing this because Mowbray has taken over. They're doing it for him, not because the club NEEDS a big attendance or anything like that.

As I say, let's see if they're still doing this in a few months times.

But why? Why do it because he is here? If Curbishley had taken over, would you still be doing the same thing? No. You best keep this little scheme up, because the club clearly need your kindness.

You do realise that you may well be buying tickets for people who jumped ship and the perennial unemployed? Two groups of people who thoroughly hated on here.

PaulineSs, you really are bitter and twisted, you seem to view peoples actions from your own moral stance. You also presume that people donating on here don't give to charitable organisations also. You mention major humanitarian disasters as some how the benchmark of kindness, but when people give to that they are also gaining something through the sensation of "doing good".
You really need to relax and try to enjoy the moments of happiness life throw at you[:D]

Frankly, why should anybody have to explain why they are doing it? It's got nowt to do with you.

Ooooo and ALB make a valid point regarding more worthy causes for a contribution, but its not a logical decision, is it? Its an off-the-cuff offer, whatever the reasons. If we all thought logically about how we spend every penny of our money, nobody would buy a season ticket ever, and instead give 400 quid to Zoe's Place every year.

And on Sas' point re people taking the mick, well you make the offer in good faith and hope it is taken as such, much like you would expect people to take you in good faith were the shoe on the other foot.

gravy, it has nothing to do with me. I can still question the theory behind it, though.

Spending £400 on a season ticket for YOURSELF is different to giving money to somebody you don't know. By doing that, you are effectively giving money to charity. All I'm saying is why not go the whole hog and actually give it to somebody who seriously needs it?

I suppose it is, Holgate. If you are willing to give money to somebody you don't know, just so they can attend a match they would normally have no interest in going to if they had to buy their own ticket, fair enough. You go right ahead.

I can't see the logic myself.

You seem to have real trouble understanding the "theory" behind this act.

So I've got a proposition for you, why don't you PayPal some money to Pink and then you won't have to worry about the deeper philosophical meaning of a "theroetical" act.

You will then have a true understanding of the "reality" of the act.

Surely all great theories need testing in the field- if it is all bull$**t, at least you will have some evidence to back you up (presuming the reasons behind your gift would simply be some attempt to say that this is, de-facto a bull$**t act).

You would be proved correct, at least in your case, and we could all go home happy.

Newy, nobody has hurt me. I'm just a man with opinions, that's all.

Bandy, I agree. Whoever has taken this offer up needs to have a long, hard look at themselves. Like I said earlier, I bet they weren't even bothered about going to the game in the first place. But as soon as a free ticket pops up, they're like a rat up a drain pipe.

When someone is low on cash or going through a bad patch you give them a helping hand knowing that in better times they will be able to do the same for you or someone else who finds themselves in that position.

All this buying people a ticket lark.

Here's an interesting idea for you to mull over:

Do you not think that your king, Mr Gibson, should be doing what you're doing? Or at least discounting tickets? If you have to take this up yourselves, that surely highlights the fact Gibson doesn't really care about the fans who cannot afford to go.

B-MAN Posted on 27/10/2010 14:56
All this buying people a ticket lark.

No, Gibson should not be doing this. That would split the fans and no doubt anger some people who'd paid for their tickets. Saying that i think Gibbo invited a few of the Corus lads down for free and schools get regular free tickets. This is an offer from one person to another, simple as that really.

I think some of the criticism of the offer is misguided to say the least.

What and why do people want to know the motives of people who are willing to donate or recieve these tickets ?

Paulo, you've made your point and even got decent blokes like sas and bandy thinking its clever to laugh at people who can't afford tickets.

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 27/10/2010 15:04
All this buying people a ticket lark.

I'm not laughing at people who can't afford tickets. Why would I do that?

I just find it bizarre that all of a sudden, people want to help people in such a way - this is obviously to boost the attendance by about 6 or 7 people. What's the point?

If people can't afford to go, they can't afford to go. They should have some self respect and not accept tickets bought for them by strangers.

Bandy and sas can make their own minds up, Marlon. I haven't twisted their arms. They obviously agree with what I'm saying. Is that a crime?

Yes, we are Teesside and we stick together. I agree. But even so, if somebody on here offered to buy me a ticket because I couldn't afford to go, I would say no - because I'd feel like a scruffy get.

Like I said, should this not be Gibson's brainchild? He has already played a PR blinder by getting Mowbray in, maybe he should look at doing what certain people on here are doing? After all, he has more money than everybody on here put together, so he won't miss it.

Aye, I have no idea who Paulo is but he thinks on my wavelength. I too am not dissing the ones who cant afford to go. I just think it's very odd accepting free tickets from someone you dont know. All this we are family is bulls hit. Boro fans can make up their own minds what they want to do. We dont all walk around together linking arms and sending each other christmas cards.

If they really, really, really wanted to go, they'd buy a ticket, Marlon. Why should people have to buy one for them?

Yet again, the suggestion of Gibson taking something like this up has been sidestepped. If he really was "one of our own", wouldn't he wanted to help those in need? Obviously not, he's too busy noshing himself off in his ivory tower.

Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with me. Or maybe it does? Who are you to say it doesn't?

Answer my question about Gibson. Why is he not taking the initiative and discounting/giving away tickets in the hope of boosting attendances? He is a multi-millionaire after all, and the PR would be very good for him and the club.

Juno, I can only speak for myself, but I'm sure Bandy thinks the same:

We're not looking down on anybody. We don't think we're clever. We're not above anybody.

There may very be some good people on this board - Andy done the charity game, which I was involved in. That was good. However, I just don't see why people are suddenly willing to buy people they don't know a ticket. It's bizarre.

As I said, this is only because Mowbray has been appointed. Will they do this for every home game? I doubt it.

ste_north_stand Posted on 27/10/2010 15:19
All this buying people a ticket lark.

I'm too skint to buy a season ticket thesedays, in the past i've been in positions where i'd of been too skint to buy a matchday ticket. I'd never of taken a freebie off anybody as i'm probably too proud. However if someone wants to swallow there's so they can get to the ground to see the match then fair play to them, that to me shows they care about the club a great deal. Pride comes before a fall and all that at the end of the day.

I remember my Dad being out of work for 3 years after the BS strikes of the early 80's. The only way we and many other families got by was by people giving my Dad a bit of work here and there for a few quid. This is not a sob story its the harsh reality of living somewhere luike Teesside. It seems this togetherness has been lost over a generation. This isn't sentimentality, more a realisation that Teessiders are becoming 'I'm alright Jacks.'

Don't forget that Bandito now lives in resolutely middle class Harrogate, and so has probably taken on the "I'm aright Jack" attitude from the people he hangs around with.*

of course it wont be for every game Paulo - that's part of the whole point. yesterday's events saw many of us get caught up in a little bit of euphoria and we all want Moggas 1st game in charge to be a bit special, for him, for the team, for the club, for the fans, that's you and me. This seemingly bizarre act IS only because Mowbray has been appointed. and i'm happy to be a part of it, because for many people this will be a day to remember, if a couple of dozen more people also get to share Saturday, then that's all good with me. its just one of those random acts of kindness if you will, you dont have to agree with it and you are of course entitled to your opinions, i respect them, but dont blow smoke in people's faces. if you want to give, then give. if you dont, then dont, it doesn't make a difference to me either way, but for some people, a difference has been made, albeit a small one in the grand scheme of things (getting to a boro match)

If I can help someone - say for example a steelworker, a born and bread teessider and someone who worked hard all of his life and who has been out of work for a decade and can no longer find work because of his age - get to the match on Saturday then I'm more than happy to help ...

I have been in the past, and still am to some extent, a critic of Ponce but this selfless act by him and countless others does not fall into the usual "look at me" category.

"we are the world..we are the boro...

When the town must come together as one
There are people skint
And it’s time to give a ticket to fans
The greatest gift of all
We can’t go on
Pretending match by match
that someone, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of
mogga’s great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need


We are the boro
We are the freebies
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your ticket
So they’ll know that someone cares
so their cries for help
will not be in vain
We can’t let them suffer
no we cannot turn away
Right now they need a free ticket

Pauline you are going on a bit though you must surely admit that. By philosphoy I meant your are wanting to systematically understand a proposition a organism has put forth.
That seems to have gone over your head due to a lack of reflection on your behalf so I'll put it simply and show how I see it, bearing in mind I have only been on this forum 10 days.

PP makes a gesture for two inital reasons, to boost the crowd for the game in some small way and to provide a lucky person the opprotunity to attend the game who may not have been able to afford to. Other persons like this and also join in with the offer. Simple, very very simple.
