After David Artell spoke to the media, the idea of refunding fans has sparked a debate on the Crewe Alexandra’s Twitter account…
If anyone claims a ticket refund you’re not a proper fan.
Enjoy the good time, roll with the bad ones. It happens. Get over it.

It’s wrong to expect or ask for one, but nothing wrong with accepting one if offered imo

It’s not mandatory though. It should be given to charity not claimed back.
Refunds shouldn’t be offered by clubs anyway. You know there are 3 outcomes to a football match however far you have to travel, take your chance.

Does that include those who watched on iFollow?

Ridiculous. If you can’t take the rough with the smooth then following your football club isn’t the thing for you.

Will never understand the logic to this. You buy a ticket not knowing but hoping (obviously) that you’ll win. Just because you didn’t doesn’t mean you deserve a refund. On the back of that performance looks like you lot will be getting refunded every week??

There was plenty of appreciation for what the manager had to say too…
Honestly love this man, so down to earth. The fact he sniggered when graham said great gesture, so true it isn’t a great gesture it’s the minimum those fans deserve

Some even jokingly tagged Championship side Queens Park Rangers, whose fans demanded a refund after their club’s 7-1 defeat at the weekend, into their tweets…
take note @QPR for that shambles at The Hawthorns
