Dear Roker Report,

Like thousands of Wolves fans we would like to attend our final game of the season at your wonderful stadium, but due to the incompetence of your CEO we can’t attend due to only attaining 2500 tickets.

Looking in from the outside we were in the same position as you only three years ago - you need to get a new owner who cares for your club and have a total clear out of all the deadwood. It’s what happened to us.

All the best for the future and keep your heads up, because the supporters will always be there for the club long after your useless owner.

Ed’s Note [Gav]: Appreciate the kind words Stephen, and good luck for next season. It’s a shame that your fans got knocked back in their request for more tickets - though I suspect this is for a few reasons.

1 - The club are still wary of the criticism they received for the abhorrent way we just let Celtic turn up at the Stadium of Light for a party in the summer. The whole thing was a huge embarrassment and they’re probably scared of the blow-back that they’ll get in hosting a similar party for yourselves.

2 - Newcastle fans. They’ve been trying to buy tickets for our home games recently and they’ve made it hard to purchase tickets for our remaining fixtures as a result. If all else fails, blame the Mags.

Dear Roker Report,

I’m a Wolves fan, and I’ve just read the edition of Fan Letters on your site talking about boycotting the game against us. Don’t do it - we’ve just been through a similar situation and bounced back. Just keep the faith, someone will come and invest in a club the size of Sunderland.

On that note - is there any chance of helping me and two mates out with getting tickets in your end? We sold out in two hours and it will be the only away game we’ve missed this season. In return we will support any protest you have on the day, us standing together will have a bigger impact to your board than a boycott.

Ed’s Note [Gav]: It’s been quite comforting hearing from fans of Wolves actually, as our path is basically identical to that of your own club. But then for every Wolves there’s a Portsmouth, and really the worry from our fans is that we don’t rebound immediately. Imagine getting relegated again?!

If anyone would like to help Adam out, please get in touch and we’ll hook you up with him.

Dear Roker Report,

Wolves fan here. We feel for you guys as our recent history has a very familiar look.

I’m stunned at the attitude of your club regarding tickets - they gave just a paltry 2500 to us. Do any of you guys want to sell your tickets? We’ll join your protests, you join our party?
