I dont know if this happens to anybody else but I have often found myself at football matches, see something happen and for some reason I am awaiting a replay to be shown. I have just got so much into the habit of waiting for the replay  LOL

I brought some friends along to watch an Ireland game, who'd never been to an Ireland live game before.
Post game, one if them said he wouldnt be returning, as the matches looked so much better on TV and that every time there was a bit of action he was waiting around for the replay.
It's a valid point you make that TV coverage is so good these days that the actual product is in some ways inferior.
I can understand why controversial incidents are not shown, but I often wonder why instant replays of goals or other defining moments are not shown on the big screens that are inside most grounds.

Some Everton fans will be paying more to watch their team in the Merseyside derby later this month than to watch them in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley three days later. (Liverpool Echo)

Roman fans basically giving up following their team for an entire season and the best you can yap about is some ****s giving off about a league of over priced bull sh*t

No wonder Vidic wants to go back to watch Ireland ffs.

Disgrace when you compare it to the Bundesliga prices.

Except there is no standing on Thursday night. You can fit twice as many people into the standing areas when the seats are up instead of down.

3/4 of the away fans at the Westfalenstadion for Bundesliga games are in a seated area (sections 55-59), the prices there are EUR 45, 38 and 32. The standing area for away fans at Bundesliga games are sections 60 and 61 and tickets cost EUR 17.

I was visiting my brother  in London last week so he got us some Arsenal season tickets that were £50, so probably cheaper than if we bought paper tickets.

If I lived near Highbury no f**king way would I pay such ridiculous priced tickets to sit in a dead atmosphere.


Romario 2016: And the ticket mafia gets caught! Well, four years ago I had already told the government.

Theatre tickets in the West End are similar in price. They are after the same demographic.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me...

I’m not surprised. Some prices have become ridiculous and the average fan is getting priced out of it.

£84 (€94) for tomorrow's north London derby. Only for the fact I got the ticket for free I wouldn't bother going. As much if not more entertainment at Brentford for £24.

Football doesn't need local fans anymore. As long as the lucrative oversea markets keep bringing in the sheep that pay ridiculous amounts to come for a match, they're fine. And they get away with it.
A sad state of affairs, but simply the reality when there is such a demand and only so much supply.

It's no longer the working mans' game.

Well you certainly couldn't be unemployed and go to games. I know it's almost 30 years ago but I was getting into the White Hart Lane for £4 when I lived in London.
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

You would think this would benefit LOI and Lower League English football massively. How anybody can justify paying those prices week in week out is beyond me.

Season ticket holder at Celtic and live in the English Midlands. Thought I would always be a ST holder at Celtic but with the cost of the season ticket, taking my son and travel costs, it is to much. Particularly after a poor year financially etc, I don’t see myself renewing. I will renew the Ireland ST due to games being more spread out and it being excellent value
