Southampton FC 'sack programme sellers' ahead of Fulham match

Saints have ended years of tradition after axing some of their programme sellers ahead of Sunday's game with Fulham.

The club have written to sellers to tell them that they will not be required with immediate effect.

Some of the sellers have given more than 25 years of service to the club, and are only paid a nominal fee of 6p from each sale.

Most are positioned outside the ground and would also gain free entry to St Mary’s after cashing up, generally some 15-30 minutes into the game.

After just a few home games of the campaign and with only a couple of day’s notice they now find themselves without their job or their ticket.

The club explained in their letter that they were making the changes to increase revenue and for unique customer service but later said on their website it was to alleviate congestion in and around the stadium.

In a letter to the sellers the club wrote: “Following the club’s promotion to the Premier League we are looking at improving every element of the business to ensure we can compete with the best and break new ground in delivering a customer experience which is unique to Southampton Football Club.

“With this in mind, a review of the match day operation has been undertaken and the decision has been made to change the way we sell match day programmes to enable us to increase revenue and deliver this service in a different and unique way.

“However, unfortunately this does mean we no longer require the services of our current programme sellers. This change will come into immediate effect and therefore you will not be required for the Fulham game.

“We appreciate your loyalty and contribution over the course of your time with the club and we would like to highlight this change was not an easy decision but a necessary change for the development of the operation going forward.”

Programmes will now be sold from ten fixed positions around the outside of St Mary’s, in the megastore and at stadium catering outlets, as well as roaming sellers.

The club explained on their official website: “Saints are always striving to improve your matchday experience, and the redeployment of our sellers is an essential part of making it an easier and quicker transaction to alleviate congestion both in and around the stadium.”

The club failed to respond to the Daily Echo’s request for a comment.

if the club really does have the customer interest at heart maybe invest in a couple of decent defenders (oh and improve the catering)

Cant see the problem to be honest,we have to become more efficient at generating revenue for this club to be financially viable.No different from when the echo stopped selling copies in the high street,no public outcry then was there .Remember that guy with no teeth shouting out the headlines outside the echo office at the bargate-times move on. All I want is a clean sheet against fulham,NC has the clubs best interest at heart.

This year I should be celebrating 50 years of supporting my beloved Saints. In that time I have missed only 5 home games. I have worked for the club since 1976, first selling lottery tickets and doing collection rounds, then as a programme seller. I would first like to answer the claim that the club need to sell more programmes. In the many years I have been a programme seller I have sold out at around 95% of the games. At this seasons games we sold out around 30 minutes before kick off. That is just at our busiest time when we can sell up to 800 programmes in games against top clubs. So if the club needed to sell more programmes then the person ordering them should have listened to those who tried to tell him.
As for the queues, we rarely had a large queue and I think anyone going to the ground would not be fooled by this poor claim. Sadly after 36 years of working for this club I have been dumped without even being given the chance to buy a ticket.

I read your post with genuine interest,please explain what you mean by "I have been dumped without even given the chance to buy a ticket " ?
And lastly were you actually "employed" by SFC.
Sorry if this appears as a stupid question,but Im guessing that if you were a full time employee you would have a serious grievance that I would sympathise with.

It's not what Cortese's done, it's the way he's done it. It's not unusual for Cortese to show no appreciation for club loyalty, is it?

It just makes us an unnecessarily easy target for outsiders

Seems a strange decision and surely the programme sellers could be relocated to other tasks around the stadium.
Can't see any reason other than a relatively small saving to the club on wages.
If that's the case I would have preferred to see savings made by a reduction in the number of stewards employed on a match day.
From observations they appear well over-staffed both inside and outside the stadium, while of course watching the match for free.
More importantly unlike the programme sellers they are not generating an income for the club.
Very disappointing how these people have been treated by SFC.

I think NC shoud take a look at himself, if indeed it has come from him to sack people like Big Deuche. I feel realy sorry for people like this. We have just invested £29M on players, supposed to be spending £14M on new training facilties; and here we are sacking long term supporters to save a few pounds selling programmes; I don't understand it.

It seems NC is not an easy person to get on with; ruthless..... being an understatement. So far we've had problems with new papers, (Sun), problems with building contractors, problems with programme vendors...still, like he guy says, keep a clean sheet on Sunday, and get 3 points..do i realy give a ****

I believe you have to have a certain percentage of stewards in comparison to your attendance.
All the club are doing is keeing the programme sellers outside the ground but reducing the number inside. There were never any queues so they must have been too many. Also I think it is a good idea to buy your programme when you buy your pint before the game

It would be a lot cheaper for the club if they got rid of those 3 'gum chewing' stewards that walk out with the team and back in with the ref every game - tgrying to look busy! I was gonna say 3 gum chewing 'blokes' but I think one of them is actually a woman - I can't be sure though ;-)

Quite agree. Some of the staff in the catering outlets are dreadfully slow and the queues, especially at half time, are ridiculous. Adding programme sales will make things even worse and will lose the club more revenue as people just wont bother. A poor decision by the club. They would have been better off hiring more staff for the food outlets and ensure they are trained. A more efficient serving process that doesn't run out of everything would generate far more in revenue than they will penny pinch by sacking the programme sellers.
I wonder which bright spark in the commercial department came up with this disaster?

In the week we received a text telling us the time we were needed for the Fulham game on Sunday. Then on Thursday the letter in the article above arrived. Of course the timing of this has not allowed us the chance to buy a season ticket and none were offered to us. We now have to hope that we can buy tickets for the individual games. No I was not full time but have been doing much for the club over the years as a volunteer or on a part time basis.

Correct,I cant see the problem,and yep I believe Nicola Cortese has the interests of the club at heart.
Look ,perhaps you are better informed than me ,many are,and I respectfully ask you to enlighten me,I am led to believe (?) that the number of program sellers has just been reduced. Is this correct ?
Why is this any different than a normal business decision,or is it because it has been made by Nicola Cortese who you obviously dislike.
And please enlighten me as to when and how Niocola Cortese has let this club down,be it in either in backing the manager financially or in what we have achieved in the last two seasons.
I await your reply and not in a patronising way.
And yep I dearly want a clean sheet against fulham.

Firstly the rather suspect halting of work at Stoneham and now axing programme sellers with a lame excuse...these are classic signs of a moratorium on spending. I reckon we've seriously overspent and have also underestimated attendances and retail sales and our revenues are way down. And I'm not surprised with that horrible new kit that hardly anyone has bought.

if you really believe that the club are letting a handfull of program sellers go who earn about £60 a fortnight is a sign of financial meltdown at saints i fear for your grasp on reality .

This year I should be celebrating 50 years of supporting my beloved Saints. In that time I have missed only 5 home games. I have worked for the club since 1976, first selling lottery tickets and doing collection rounds, then as a programme seller. I would first like to answer the claim that the club need to sell more programmes. In the many years I have been a programme seller I have sold out at around 95% of the games. At this seasons games we sold out around 30 minutes before kick off. That is just at our busiest time when we can sell up to 800 programmes in games against top clubs. So if the club needed to sell more programmes then the person ordering them should have listened to those who tried to tell him.
As for the queues, we rarely had a large queue and I think anyone going to the ground would not be fooled by this poor claim. Sadly after 36 years of working for this club I have been dumped without even being given the chance to buy a ticket.
Really sorry to hear your plight. We never have any problems or queues getting our program. Certainly not going to bother queuing inside to buy one now. They going to close the burger bars outside for causing congestion? I don't think so.

and now axing programme sellers with a lame excuse...

> Saving money that you judge to be being wasted is pretty standard business practice.

These are classic signs of a moratorium on spending.

> What are?

I reckon we've seriously overspent and have also underestimated attendances and retail sales and our revenues are way down.

> On what basis do you think we've overspent? If they weren't in control of outgoings (overspending) they wouldn't be addressing this. You can't have it both ways. The ground had been full to within 1,000 seats of capacity for the two games so far at St Mary's. Do you think they were planning on getting 36,000 into the 32,000 seats or something?

And I'm not surprised with that horrible new kit that hardly anyone has bought

> You've obviously not been to a game this season.

So, all in all an odd attack.

I read your post with genuine interest,please explain what you mean by "I have been dumped without even given the chance to buy a ticket " ?
And lastly were you actually "employed" by SFC.
Sorry if this appears as a stupid question,but Im guessing that if you were a full time employee you would have a serious grievance that I would sympathise with.
In the week we received a text telling us the time we were needed for the Fulham game on Sunday. Then on Thursday the letter in the article above arrived. Of course the timing of this has not allowed us the chance to buy a season ticket and none were offered to us. We now have to hope that we can buy tickets for the individual games. No I was not full time but have been doing much for the club over the years as a volunteer or on a part time basis.

Very well put slugger, the suggestion that we have laid off progamme sellers cos we're broke is hilarious. I would imagine the club budgeted for training ground and I don't see why attendences have been over estimated (not under), we've had good crowds.

Agreed - I was told years ago, make business decisions ruthlessly, carry them out compassionately.
I like that description.

It sounds to me that the decision was made and then implemented instantly - when in reality after all these years a game or twos notice wouldn't have done any harm.

I had a conversation with the club this week sorting out the Wet Spam tickets for me, Bill and Slugger. I wanted the points allocated to all of us not just me (cos I'm nice) and do you know the points system isn't up and running yet.

I think many of the clubs business ideas are good but they introduce them before testing or training which in any business always brings the same results - chaos.

Mind you at the Man U game I used the new corporate ordering system and when I went to pay for 8 pints, 8 cokes and 4 cheese burgers and chips I was charged £10.50 so it's not all bad!

The point made is about the financially prudent measures taken in reference to lower than expected revenue and how those measures are seen by the media and supporters.That this conversation is taking place could be seen as evidence that there is more than one view on the subject.

I don't know - but if no shortfall, why these actions? There is a recession and its reasonable to assume that Saints aren't immune to it. This is not an argument about what Saints are doing, but how they're do

I'm a seller and lost my job, its a joke they could have done this a begin of season so we could have got a ticket. We are all fans, my dad sells over 1000 per game at the bridge, there is no way a inexperience burger guy will do this, and all this to save about £500 if they can sell our seats - that's about 170 programs I'm sure they will sell loads less moving forward

Looking at the way this was done, I suspect a program seller pi$$ed off the big man. We all know that he is quick on the trigger when annoyed, and heartless when he feels like it.

Personally I think this is kind of sad. I have never had any wait at all fr programs, beyond a few punters maybe. And. For he was always pleased to see them working the ground during the tough years in league one.

Let's hope cortese doesn't tempt the karma police onetime too many.

How hard would it have been to keep the system in place this season, and signal ai change for next season if needed?

Can I offer my sympathy for what has happened and my thanks to you and all the others for their sterling service over many years, just for being there when I needed you. If the Club appear not have appreciated your services, the fans certainly did.

At this seasons games we sold out around 30 minutes before kick off. That is just at our busiest time when we can sell up to 800 programmes in games against top clubs. So if the club needed to sell more programmes then the person ordering them should have listened to those who tried to tell him.
As for the queues, we rarely had a large queue and I think anyone going to the ground would not be fooled by this poor claim. Sadly after 36 years of working for this club I have been dumped without even being given the chance to buy a ticket.
I read your post with genuine interest,please explain what you mean by "I have been dumped without even given the chance to buy a ticket " ?
And lastly were you actually "employed" by SFC.
Sorry if this appears as a stupid question,but Im guessing that if you were a full time employee you would have a serious grievance that I would sympathise with.
frist let me say sorry you lost your little job, but you was getting in to see saints for 36years with out paying, and only missed 5 games in that time, like me when me and my wife was and still is S.T.Hs I lost my job and we missed a hole session. So time must go on.

Sanctimonious post, do you think I don't care about the guys? Read my other post before being judgemental. This is the Twenty First Century and we still were buying Programmes from a vendor standing in the pouring rain from a couple of upturned boxes, hardly Premier Class is it?
thomasupton (anagram of southampton) is just a wum osprey , belittle him at every oportunity !
These guys were sacked and you call me a skate. You heartless *******
These guys were volunteers who were released, the majority weren't full time employees and have not done badly over the years. Why are you so upset? Your reaction seems extreme to say the least.

I think you will find that the Programme Price isn't set by the Club, probably by the Premier League, anyone know for sure to save me researching it?

Well, I am afraid you are following the wrong club, you conveniently forget what has happened recently, we are Premier League, times have changed, the Club has to change too, not always for the better I agree, but it cannot stand still just because it is traditional, it has to keep up with the rest.

There are probably good reasons for the change but it would have been helpful if they had been explained and reasonable notice given.

That said, if the club is watching the pennies, it's better than being one of those clubs which isn't. Nicola is setting it up as a business and not a very expensive toy.

Most of us, most of the time, like to think that when all is said and done, the meek shall inherit the earth. Nicola is the type who also secures the mineral rights.

I think most fans would like to see the terraces back, but with health and safety and what happened at Hillsborough can't ever see that happening. I agree things move forward but still think this could have been handled differently.

While I dont think any one would disagree that this could and should have been handled more kindly, I think its Insane to tout this as i cost saving measure to ease a shortfall, in the grand scheme of things the cost of the programme seller's it penuts, so to that end the most plausable reason for it is to try and improve and streamline match day services i expect to see more staff inside the stadium on sunday who will not only be selling programmes but beer and pies and maybe just maybe I can get a beer at 1/2 time without missing the start of the second half, lets not forget only a few weeks ago they gave the match day programme a premier league make over, so stands to reason that its all about taking the club forward and making improvements all across the board not just sacking people to save a few quid

I'm surprised that this is seen at all as a money-saving thing (not that I have a clue why this was done at all of course).

If the program sellers are too costly in the Prem, how on earth could we afford them before Sky's millions rolled through town?

Strange behaviour from The Don. His behaviour suggests an angry man.

I wouldn't want to be the first person to see him in the hallway if we lose to Fulham.

What sort of man sacks people who have worked for the Club for 25 years, by text, with no notice period?
Some might say a scumbag, I couldn't possibly comment.
I think this is NC getting in some light training before the main event when he sacks Nigel.
I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit, Ted Bates must be spinning in his grave

if you really believe that the club are letting a handfull of program sellers go who earn about £60 a fortnight is a sign of financial meltdown at saints i fear for your grasp on reality .
Very well put slugger, the suggestion that we have laid off progamme sellers cos we're broke is hilarious. I would imagine the club budgeted for training ground and I don't see why attendences have been over estimated (not under), we've had good crowds.

Do wish the club would handle things better though.
No ones talking about financial meltdown - the club is financially better off than just about any other UK club.
The point made is about the financially prudent measures taken in reference to lower than expected revenue and how those measures are seen by the media and supporters.That this conversation is taking place could be seen as evidence that there is more than one view on the subject.
You're perfectly entitled to your view, though you've lost me. Suggestions that we lay of casual staff and abandon a major project because of cash is surely to suggest serious cash problems no? And you completely agree with someone who claims income is 'way down' though you don't know that that is the case. We have recently spent £10 mill plus on one player, six games later we're broke!

This year I should be celebrating 50 years of supporting my beloved Saints. In that time I have missed only 5 home games. I have worked for the club since 1976, first selling lottery tickets and doing collection rounds, then as a programme seller. I would first like to answer the claim that the club need to sell more programmes. In the many years I have been a programme seller I have sold out at around 95% of the games. At this seasons games we sold out around 30 minutes before kick off. That is just at our busiest time when we can sell up to 800 programmes in games against top clubs. So if the club needed to sell more programmes then the person ordering them should have listened to those who tried to tell him.
As for the queues, we rarely had a large queue and I think anyone going to the ground would not be fooled by this poor claim. Sadly after 36 years of working for this club I have been dumped without even being given the chance to buy a ticket.
I didn't realize that fans still brought programmes, how much do they cost now?If you get paid 6p a sale and you sale 1000, that makes you £60. Plus your ticket, that's worth about £40. That makes about £100 for a couple of hours work. No wonder the sellers are unhappy. I am surprised Lowe missed this.

Programme selling is nothing about "business" in the case of football, its part of the historic fabric. Football needs peripheral aspects and some social "glue" to keep fans loving going to football for reasons other than purely making a logical consumer decision. If logic starts to creep into football, then attendances will collapse overnight.

He knows so little about us that he thinks NA has ten months left on his contract (rather than the near three years he really has). He does nothing but attack Saints. He calls Saints fans "you" when he's not being careful.

The guy's a WUM from Portsmouth.

Sanctimonious post, do you think I don't care about the guys? Read my other post before being judgemental. This is the Twenty First Century and we still were buying Programmes from a vendor standing in the pouring rain from a couple of upturned boxes, hardly Premier Class is it?
thomasupton (anagram of southampton) is just a wum osprey , belittle him at every oportunity !
These guys were sacked and you call me a skate. You heartless *******
These guys were volunteers who were released, the majority weren't full time employees and have not done badly over the years. Why are you so upset? Your reaction seems extreme to say the least.
3 Days notice after all this time, yes it does upset me and I expect they're all upset too. My nipper always buys his program from these guys. Maybe they could have given them atleast one more game and we could have thanked them personally.

I think this is NC getting in some light training before the main event when he sacks Nigel.

I can imagine Marcus would be too.
You could show some respect by spelling his christian name correctly for a start, it's Markus.
He wouldn't know, he's not from Southampton.

He knows so little about us that he thinks NA has ten months left on his contract (rather than the near three years he really has). He does nothing but attack Saints. He calls Saints fans "you" when he's not being careful.

The guy's a WUM from Portsmouth.
I call the "positive" posters "you". People like you for instance, who find things positive in people losing their jobs.
WOW - I ALMOST MISSED IT:

Lookee what we have here.

Thomasupton responds to a post made by me to Tebourba - look at it for ten seconds and think and it's clear they they are the same bloke with two logons. I speak to Tebourba and Thomasupton responds.

I KNEW IT! Long suspected, now proven. They ALWAYS get caught out.
Boof! I believe that is what the youth call being 'pwned'.

Now do be a love, Upton, and do one.

They are still selling the Programmes, just using a different methods, don't know how it makes any financial difference. I am not sure about buying them from a catering stall, I don't like them wet, I would absolutely hate them to be greasy.
Well I'm glad you get joy from sarcasm, at the cost of peoples jobs.
Well at £3-00 a time I don't want soiled goods thank you very much.
You're the one with "soiled hands" making jest at peoples misfortune.
Ouch that hurt.
Not as much as losing your job after 25 years though.

No you haven't. We are mostly upset about it, but it is progress I guess, we are all in agreement, I think, that it has been mishandled, I doubt it has come from the top of the ladder, it is probably someone else in the organization charged with improving things, and doesn't see it how the rest of us do.

All I can say is if there is a queue at a program seller or food vendor I move onto the next one as I really hate queing. especially after having to do it on the M25 and then to get into Soton, so I probably wont buy another programe and just talk to my wife and son at half time whilst others try and get their food and drink within the 15 mins. always managed to get a coffee at the pitch side vendors though

I wonder if those cancer charities minded not being paid? Obviously, they're not as important as some bloke earning a bit of pocket money and a free ticket, but I'd be interested to know where your highly tuned moral compass points on this one.

You could show some respect by spelling his christian name correctly for a start, it's Markus.

The guy's a WUM from Portsmouth.

In which case, you should be ashamed of your club stealing money from cancer charities. Do you have no shame? Stop wasting time on here and go and do something about it. Tell Chanrai, tell the PST, but at the very least get someone at your club to do something about it rather than coming on here and trying to wind people up.

Some might say a scumbag, I couldn't possibly comment.
I think this is NC getting in some light training before the main event when he sacks Nigel.
I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit, Ted Bates must be spinning in his grave
I can imagine Marcus would be too.
You could show some respect by spelling his christian name correctly for a start, it's Markus.
He wouldn't know, he's not from Southampton.

He knows so little about us that he thinks NA has ten months left on his contract (rather than the near three years he really has). He does nothing but attack Saints. He calls Saints fans "you" when he's not being careful.

The guy's a WUM from Portsmouth.
I call the "positive" posters "you". People like you for instance, who find things positive in people losing their jobs.
Where did I find anything positive in people losing their jobs? Find me the post and I'll meet you on Sunday and give you £100.
Ah, the sound of silence... so informative.

I posted above that I think it's been done badly. No apology required for your false accusation, honestly.

Teborebore/Thomasupt


on, run along now. Your repeated badmouthing of every single thing OUR club does is becoming tedious. Wouldn't you be better off trying to save YOUR club from the mire it's in by offering your time (and money) to the PST? Wasting your time on here is pointless. (Having two sign ons and furiously agreeing with yourself is even more pitiful, but let's leave that for now.).
Yes I apologize for bad mouthing my club for sacking program sellers after 25 years service and giving them 3 days notice, what was I thinking of.
Has your club sacked the programme sellers as well as ours? What a coincidence. Just another bunch of innocents in the firing line, then.

Lost a best friend to cancer last year and my Dad is recovering from bladder cancer so I would say very high.

We've discovered that Teborebore and Thomasupem are one and the same person and that he/they are WUMs from Portsmouth.

Nice result for a single thread.

I'll just like to say two things.

Firstly, every time I go to buy a programme (over the last 2/3 seasons, they've sold out!!! Oh well, never mind.

Secondly, and this is aimed a "fans" like Thomas Upton and Tebourba. I have an idea that you might like.

How about the clubs sells all our best players for pittance, claimingthat if they want to go we can't do anything to stop them! Then, we can replace them with mediocre players (or players not even that good) on fairly high wages, after they have cost us £1 M plus each.

We can then sack Adkins and appoint Andy Crosby as manager as he will be a cheap option, only to sack him 4 games later because we're bottom of the league with just 3 points. We can then appoint Harry back, with Clive Woodward as Director of Football, both on high salaries.

We can then start playing the oh-so-attractive long ball game, and then when fans stop turing up, we can close all 4 corners of the ground.

Next season, in the Championship, all our half-decent players will leave as they'll have relegation clauses in their contracts. We'll end up in administration, face a 10 point penalty, and then start the 2014/15 season in League 1, but with our very existence hanging in the balance.

Then, just at the point we are about to be liquidated and cease to exist, we'll be taken over by a multi-billionaire, who will pump shed loads of money into the club, pay for the best League One striker of the time, appoint an up-and-coming English manager, support him financially through 2 successive promotions, til we arrive back in the Premiership for the 2018/19 season.

And you will still find something to moan and criticise about. Now, why don't you all just **** off and support the fishy few.

Interesting juxtaposition:

"I take Cancer charities very seriously"

Offered £50 and

"my chosen charity is for the program sellers"

Truly amazing.

I'm sure you do. In comparison, the business with the programme sellers doesn't seem too serious, does it? In fact, I don't think you actually give a flying fcuk about the programme sellers but you've decided to latch on to some unfortunate news for them and use that news as a stick with which to beat those running a club you don't like.

You are all class.

To put all this speculation to bed once and for all why don't you meet us in any of the pubs near the ground before the Fulham match? You chose the pub I will buy the beer.

Yes very poor just like those program sellers now.
Where did the charity money go Thomas? You have a vested interest (one that everyone here would sympathise with)...answer the question.
I haven't got a clue, I was just saying with losing my friend and my Dad recovering I take Cancer charities very seriously.
In that case I have £50 to give to your chosen charity...all you have to do is buy me a beer before the Fulham game on Sunday.
Bungalow Bill, my chosen charity is for the program sellers. I can't be at the Beadsley Sunday because I'll be at the match. Leave the money behind the bar and I'll pick it up Monday. I'll buy you a pint of squash when I see you
pompey are playing on saturday ..... you'll be fine ! ......... it's the beadslee btw .
Is it?? Not the Beadslea?
and there too !
1-1 I think there slugger lol
But it has to be mentioned that google played an absolutely blinding assist in your goal.
lol ,my brother lived 200 yards from the place and i spelt it wrong ........oh well , sh1t happens.
Was also thinking of the Steak and Stilton but think that ones changed its name now.
Baddesley Arms now again Thomas. Anyway..come on mate...I was serious about the £50 donation. Cancer is a serious issue (most of us know someone who has suffered)...all you have to do is turn up and pledge £4 for a beer for my gullet. Simples...who on earth with a charitable mind would refuse easy money like that?
Maybe one day. The steak and Stilton used to be on the corner of Rowhnams road and Botley road, is it by Great Covert garage?
It is indeed....strange that you would shirk a charity so close to your heart. Never mind....

Sanctimonious post, do you think I don't care about the guys? Read my other post before being judgemental. This is the Twenty First Century and we still were buying Programmes from a vendor standing in the pouring rain from a couple of upturned boxes, hardly Premier Class is it?
As unfortunate as this is and I do feel really sorry for the people let go, it has been a rather out dated way to sell the programmes.

Also, being in the print trade I can say in truth that all physical sales of programmes have dropped over the last few years for many clubs. Especially as many offer a digital alternative. I am happy to say that I think there will always be a printed version (in my lifetime anyway) but demand is less than it was.

When I first started going to the dell in my teens I bought a programme quite regular, to be honest I can't remember the last time I bought one in recent years!!!

thomasupton (anagram of southampton) is just a wum osprey , belittle him at every oportunity !
These guys were sacked and you call me a skate. You heartless *******
These guys were volunteers who were released, the majority weren't full time employees and have not done badly over the years. Why are you so upset? Your reaction seems extreme to say the least.
3 Days notice after all this time, yes it does upset me and I expect they're all upset too. My nipper always buys his program from these guys. Maybe they could have given them atleast one more game and we could have thanked them personally.
lol ....... what a credit to the blue few he is ........ this is an intelligent one !

if you really believe that the club are letting a handfull of program sellers go who earn about £60 a fortnight is a sign of financial meltdown at saints i fear for your grasp on reality .
Very well put slugger, the suggestion that we have laid off progamme sellers cos we're broke is hilarious. I would imagine the club budgeted for training ground and I don't see why attendences have been over estimated (not under), we've had good crowds.

Do wish the club would handle things better though.
No ones talking about financial meltdown - the club is financially better off than just about any other UK club.
The point made is about the financially prudent measures taken in reference to lower than expected revenue and how those measures are seen by the media and supporters.That this conversation is taking place could be seen as evidence that there is more than one view on the subject.
what lower than expected revenue ?
I don't know - but if no shortfall, why these actions? There is a recession and its reasonable to assume that Saints aren't immune to it. This is not an argument about what Saints are doing, but how they're do
Sorry - old Git syndrome - comment should finish "how they're doing it"
i repeat (sort of) what i said above ........ i refuse to belive that nicola is doing this because of some "shortfall" .......... badly handled i accept ....... just his way i guess .
this has nothing to do with revenue agreed and imo has nothing to do with NC, I can not see him wasting valuable time discussing the pros-and-cons of programme selling, this smells of some half-wit left in charge of "improving things". Well its a classic mistake. Most football fans attending games do not seek out programmes, they want one where they know they can find it and before they go into the ground, mostly.
It is another case of taking the game away from the working man and the true fan. Like producing a shirt that is not red and white stripes ... Does anyone realise that the programme is printed in Portsmoutrh?

When I was given the chance to help this great club I took it. I even paid to get in for 10 years despite having a free ticket. The letter I received was disgusting. It did not even give me the option of paying for a ticket to the games. These people are as far removed from the real supporters as you can get. They knew we are red and white stripes yet pushed through the new style shirts with total disregard of the feelings of the true Saints fan. Does any opf you realise that the Saints matchday programme is printed in Portsmouth? I guess not as the address of the printers is omitted in the programme ... Look up Bishops printers. Finally I would like to say that foir 50 years I have loved and supported this club. I have the greatest of respect for mr Cortese who, along with the lovely Marcus Liebherr saved the club I love.

Firstly, every time I go to buy a programme (over the last 2/3 seasons, they've sold out!!! Oh well, never mind.

Secondly, and this is aimed a "fans" like Thomas Upton and Tebourba. I have an idea that you might like.

How about the clubs sells all our best players for pittance, claimingthat if they want to go we can't do anything to stop them! Then, we can replace them with mediocre players (or players not even that good) on fairly high wages, after they have cost us £1 M plus each.

We can then sack Adkins and appoint Andy Crosby as manager as he will be a cheap option, only to sack him 4 games later because we're bottom of the league with just 3 points. We can then appoint Harry back, with Clive Woodward as Director of Football, both on high salaries.

We can then start playing the oh-so-attractive long ball game, and then when fans stop turing up, we can close all 4 corners of the ground.

Next season, in the Championship, all our half-decent players will leave as they'll have relegation clauses in their contracts. We'll end up in administration, face a 10 point penalty, and then start the 2014/15 season in League 1, but with our very existence hanging in the balance.

Then, just at the point we are about to be liquidated and cease to exist, we'll be taken over by a multi-billionaire, who will pump shed loads of money into the club, pay for the best League One striker of the time, appoint an up-and-coming English manager, support him financially through 2 successive promotions, til we arrive back in the Premiership for the 2018/19 season.

And you will still find something to moan and criticise about. Now, why don't you all just **** off and support the fishy few.

BD, sorry to hear about the way it's been done. As I've said above, I can understand the fact the decision's been made, but it seems to have been carried out in a pretty thoughtless way.

Thanks for all the work you've done over the years - hope you can sort out tickets. It's a shame the club haven't given you the option to buy some kind of short season ticket for the seats they must have set aside for you in the past so you can get to the games this year...

I love my club as much as anyone of you. When I was given the chance to help this great club I took it. I even paid to get in for 10 years despite having a free ticket. The letter I received was disgusting. It did not even give me the option of paying for a ticket to the games. These people are as far removed from the real supporters as you can get. They knew we are red and white stripes yet pushed through the new style shirts with total disregard of the feelings of the true Saints fan. Does any opf you realise that the Saints matchday programme is printed in Portsmouth? I guess not as the address of the printers is omitted in the programme ... Look up Bishops printers. Finally I would like to say that foir 50 years I have loved and supported this club. I have the greatest of respect for mr Cortese who, along with the lovely Marcus Liebherr saved the club I love. I will be a Southampton fan until I die. And even though I feel like I have been betrayed by the love of my life, that will never change[/p][/quote]BD, sorry to hear about the way it's been done. As I've said above, I can understand the fact the decision's been made, but it seems to have been carried out in a pretty thoughtless way. Thanks for all the work you've done over the years - hope you can sort out tickets. It's a shame the club haven't given you the option to buy some kind of short season ticket for the seats they must have set aside for you in the past so you can get to the games this year... Velleity

Bill and Slugger usually go to The Station and I'm in the Channon suite. After the Villa game we met at the Joshua Tree. We're flexible though, all pubs are good!
Will the Joshua Tree allow my 10yo son in?

If so, I'm more than up for a pint after the game (it's a 1:30 kick off, remember). So is my son, probably.

Seems a strange decision and surely the programme sellers could be relocated to other tasks around the stadium.
Can't see any reason other than a relatively small saving to the club on wages.
If that's the case I would have preferred to see savings made by a reduction in the number of stewards employed on a match day.
From observations they appear well over-staffed both inside and outside the stadium, while of course watching the match for free.
More importantly unlike the programme sellers they are not generating an income for the club.
Very disappointing how these people have been treated by SFC.

How about the clubs sells all our best players for pittance, claimingthat if they want to go we can't do anything to stop them! Then, we can replace them with mediocre players (or players not even that good) on fairly high wages, after they have cost us £1 M plus each.

We can then sack Adkins and appoint Andy Crosby as manager as he will be a cheap option, only to sack him 4 games later because we're bottom of the league with just 3 points. We can then appoint Harry back, with Clive Woodward as Director of Football, both on high salaries.

We can then start playing the oh-so-attractive long ball game, and then when fans stop turing up, we can close all 4 corners of the ground.

Next season, in the Championship, all our half-decent players will leave as they'll have relegation clauses in their contracts. We'll end up in administration, face a 10 point penalty, and then start the 2014/15 season in League 1, but with our very existence hanging in the balance.

Then, just at the point we are about to be liquidated and cease to exist, we'll be taken over by a multi-billionaire, who will pump shed loads of money into the club, pay for the best League One striker of the time, appoint an up-and-coming English manager, support him financially through 2 successive promotions, til we arrive back in the Premiership for the 2018/19 season.

And you will still find something to moan and criticise about. Now, why don't you all just **** off and support the fishy few.

4 years ago the powers that be were calling for loyalty from the supporters in the clubs time of need , the supporters stood by the club through thick and thin , loyalty is a 2 way street and 6p per programme and a ticket for the match is hardly breaking the bank .

bit confused by your post. Wigan at home was watched by 29k fans I believe - was never going to sell out.

Do you really want to reward them by doubting what that they did for the Club? There are bound to be ups and downs, I cannot believe that you cannot keep the faith and trust in Nicola, he has a dream and I am sure he is doing everything he can do to realise it. If you cannot give your full support, then I suggest you are in the wrong place at wrong time and SFC is not for you after all. Think before you post, be sure that what you have to say is factual, truthfull, not scurrilous speculation, that can do damage even if it is proved to be wrong later. We all want to know, we have a right to know, but I have no doubt that the Club will clarify the situation when it is right to do so. Please do not even bother to respond to the WUMs, they know even less about it than we do and their words are empty, just designed to annoy. Keep the faith, the future is bright, it's red and white, starting from tomorrow at St. Marys let us be hearing from wherever you are, as a supporter you are still vital in keeping the Club on track, it is down to every individual to believe, no doubting Thomas types, they are not welcome here.

What sort of man sacks people who have worked for the Club for 25 years, by text, with no notice period?
Some might say a scumbag, I couldn't possibly comment.
I think this is NC getting in some light training before the main event when he sacks Nigel.
I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit, Ted Bates must be spinning in his grave
what is wrong with some people..... NC is involved with trying to buy/sell multi-million pounds players.... what rational bone in your body thinks he can be bothered with match-day programme matters !?!? get real, this is the work of some numpty, probably an "expert" on marketing or something. But if you seriously think Nicola has the time to debate programme selling stategy then I assume you have soft toys in abundance to play with at home..
I think you are wrong.
Did you ever see the QPR documentary ?. the CEO was holding a finance meeting and complaining about how much a week the club spent on flowers.

Would like to put the record straight on what we were paid. Yes I would say the rate of pay was good. If you sold well you earned well. But it is not known that we were taxed on what we earned and we were never given anything like wet weather gear etc. Even the money belt was bought and paid for by me. We had to be at our pitch right up until kick off and then cash up before we got in to see the game. If our money was short it was our problem. Often the boxes were found to be short and if that was not noticed then that was our problem. We were always forgotten when anything happened, like the 'staff promotion party' at the end of last season. It was not always a bed of roses but we loved to serve the football going public, many of them becoming friends. I stood in that car park today and watched as many of my colleagues were in tears. Not because they didn't get paid for doing the job but simply because the club they have served and loved for many years had treated them so badly.

So if NC is trying to enhance the match day experience can you explain why there were no bottles of Coke on sale yesterday? Is it because he could not get his baby hands round a large bottle.
Time for NC to stop messing around with the small things and concentrate on getting the big things right like or training ground and defence. Time for NC to pull his head out his r's and look at the bigger picture. We are starting to become a laughing stock of the PL due to the clown running us.

well this latest brainwave is going to save the club a fortune.with the money we don't have to pay out in commission we will be able to act big in the january transfer window and buy the Blackfield and Langley centre half.
another kick in the teeth for your average working class Saints supporter.as far as i am concerned if this is another example of NC's cherished 5 year plan he can stick it where the sun don't shine.come back rupert lowe all is forgiven.

Why dont we all show our loyal support to the Program sellers by not buying them.
By doing this would show the bright sparks that came up with this idea that we're not happy about the crazy situation, Sunday was the first time ever in 62 years of supporting the Saints that I did not buy one and my personal protest will remain till the sellers are back in their usual places.
As a point of interest I have never ever seen any people congestion where programs are being sold, my theory is that its all about some thing "very much different" !!!

I very much doubt if the new locations will be waterproof. I sold them outside all the time and the only protection from the rain I got was what I bought myself. I also bought my own box to try and keep them dry.

Surely the point about all this is the way we received notification. 3 days notice in a letter not even the decency to call us together to let us know what they were doing.

Whatever people think about the decision, you do not treat people this way.

If your bosses did this to you at work, you maybe up in arms as well.

Thanks to everyone who has written in to support us. It is much appreciated. Also thanks to all those who bought them from me for the last 31 years I have been selling them.

I have asked around about this within "old school" supporters and this is a PR disaster with that sub-group.... maybe they are not valued anymore... by the club. If thats the way it is, thats the way it is. That means there are no longer any "real" supporters though.... there are just consumers of the brand.
