Me too.
 
Remember paying 4 pounds into Stamford Bridge and 3.50 into Selhurst back in mid 90s.

Yeah RL but a grown man having to dress up as a school boy is a bit humiliating unless your Angus Young

Sad thing is most people see the alternative of "not being able to afford Premiership/Championship football" as watching it on TV, rather than "go to football that you can afford".

There's a generation that think football is a TV show. Not sure how you can convince them otherwise.

Some of the prices further down are starting to get a bit pricy too. It is 24 quid for an away end ticket at Kenilworth road tomorrow, four pounds dearer than last year. Barnet was the same price. 'Twenty's plenty' not filtering down, it seems.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

The corporate fan and day tripper is seen as more important than the fan for life unfortunately. 10 people sitting in front of me at Ireland match other night, some with shag all interest in the game, arrive late, leave for half time pints early, come back late and leave early again for more pints, this is the fan clubs (and to an extent FAI) want, not disruptive and will just sing along with what they're told.

People need to understand that going to a football match is more than just the quality of football on the pitch, its a social activity to meet friends/family and experience actual emotion of watching your team, win or lose.  It can't be compared to a trip to the cinema or other possible activities that people sometimes make reference to, it's experience in itself that you have to go on a regular basis to really understand. Banging on about mental transfer fees or "Super Sunday" is not what football is about but it's a battle that's all but lost.

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.


Following the backlash in 2016, local fans can now get into Anfield for £9. Mind you, you have to register yourself and your address in advance with the club to qualify, but not every club charges London prices.

Man U tickets v Derby in the FA Cup £45 I thought the price might have been cheaper for the early rounds like a lot of clubs do these days.
