    I understand that people are having hard times on the financial front but theres one thing i dont understand. Some people in this thread have stated they would be willing to pay £15 if we were playing a "top european side", but you're paying to see City not the opposition!

    During the season you are willing to pay up to £15 to watch us play teams in the F.A and Carling cup, teams like Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Utd. Yet you don't want to pay to watch us against a champions league side? Obviously it would be nice to see how we stand against the top sides but Celtic arent too bad, we'll certainly get a game from them

    It's your decision how you spend your money, but don't moan about ticket prices because we've got one of the best deals in the league and the club treat us as fans very well. We should see ourselves as lucky as some other clubs would be forcing you to buy these tickets if you're a season ticket holder.

    The owners are business men, so have to begin to recoup the money sooner or later. I'm not sure why people think suddenly everything should be dirt cheap now we have rich owners. Usually when a club is in our situation, prices go up.

    Here here.

    Some people are sounding very ungrateful. The Board's very nice Hamburg gesture is being used by fans as something to batter them round the head with.

    A massive well done for being one of the best teams in a pub league!

    Oh and 2-1, not bad for a below average club like our's

    Well nearly 30,000 were willing to pay it and considering that it was one of the prime holiday weeks and, with the greatest of respect to our visitors yesterday, it wasn't headline opposition that's not too bad.

    The Hamburg game was a one-off. We were on the verge of a European semi-final and rather than risk a half-full ground, our owners took a brave decision on pricing to ensure the stadium was full and we got a good atmosphere, which we did. The gamble nearly paid off as we intimidated the Hamburg players and lifted our own.

    No one was more fed up of the way the club was run under Wardle & Mackintosh than you were, Don. Comical Ali would have charged £30 or more and been quite happy with 30,000 for the Hamburg game because all he saw was the money. But matches involve expense. Police, stewards, gas & electricity, etc all have to be paid for. It's not unreasonable to expect that to come out of ticket money. These guys have spent £100m on us this summer alone and at least as much before then. I don't begrudge £15 to get a first glimpse of Barry, Adebayor, Toure and Tevez at CoMS. As it was, it was an entertaining game with a cracking atmosphere and I consider it good value.

    I'm just waiting for the 'Our owners are minted so surely they should pay our season tickets' thread to start. Will only be a matter of time. They are businessman not a f'king charity, what more do people want? The money they've given ourselves so far has been a gift. That's the money they paid for the club, transfer funds, changes to the stadium, keeping the ticket prices the same and even less in some cases and some people are still unhappy. Years of mediocrity and now something new and exciting is happening and all we get is griping over the price of pre-season friendly ticket. Well the decision is quite simple, you either buy one or you don't and if you don't then stop f'king whining about it to the rest of us. It's called choice!

    People did make a choice & unfortuantly the Ground was not full .Admitidly the club is not a Charity but if they want to fill the ground for this sort of game they will seriously have to look at ticket prices or acept the ground wont be full

    Tell me a time in a pre-season friendly at the COMS or Maine Rd when the place was full to capacity? The only time i can ever remember a decent crowd in one was the charity shield against Burnley in the 70's. And the novely which was the Barcelona game, bearing in mind it was the majority of peoples first visit to the stadium.
