Season ticket sales: middle ground?

Season ticket sales: middle ground?

Today (Mon 20.07.09) NUFC have announced that they have sold 25,000 season tickets for the 2009 - 2010 Championship season. Given that we have a owner that wants out, no manager and a playing squad that is yet to be decimated this is not a bad return on blind loyalty considering no-one has any idea as to what the future holds.

However this contrasts wildly with the Sunday Sun and Sunday Mirror articles suggesting administration could be imminent due to sales of around 15,000. Naturally the obvious thought is to pick a middle figure but what would the club accomplish by lying about the stats? Unless of course they are trying to assuage the prospective buyers.

However any season ticket lies would ultimately lead to Ashley and Co being taken to court for providing false information should found true. Therefore the higher figure does seem realistic.
