Taking NJT back is fine if you time the train right, but there are at times (including after the game last night) a 45 minute gap between trains. Taking the PATH is definitely the most convenient way on weekdays when it is running normally.
Weekends right now are a different story, though. NJT with a walk over to Catas for a drink or two then over the bridge is my new preferred strategy.
Hopefully we play well. These are the types of games where you can pull some people in. My first MLS game was going to see Red Bulls v Galaxy because of Henry and Beckham, and I was pretty much immediately hooked.
Whether they will ever acknowledge it or not, last season something happened which appears to be that they stopped flooding secondary markets with cheap tickets. Even as attendance declined I was able to resell my tickets when I had to miss games for more money than in the past.
I think teams that don't draw well are constantly trying to find a balance between enticing more people in with giveaways and deals versus preserving the value of a season ticket for their most loyal fans.
