    Fact remains what was £34 ish is now £58.

    Anyone just doen that Cityvoice survey where they are talking about a ticket for the last 3 games at £160 or something?

    We live in a free market, supply and demand determines prices, fair enough in theory

    But your lapsed blue who's got a young family, a mortgage to pay for and fancies taking his lad to a game like his dad once took him might balk at paying £100 for the pleasure. Not a problem our new bourgeois fans have.

    I am sick and tired of seeing ABC1 types at Eastlands, dressed up like they're on a date, taking selfies or otherwise pissing about on their phone all game.

    "WE NEED TO BE SELF SUSTAINING" scream the no doubt sensible replies to my flawed argument. But do we really ? In terms of matchday revenue how much more income do we get per game by filling the ground with well to do entertainment seekers rather than genuine city fans ? 30 minutes worth of oil from one of the Sheikh's wells ? We're probably still paying that **** Adebayor more money per year than these new fans bring in.

    I know I'm wrong really and a luddite in this respect but for me every time a thread like this appears it's another nail in the coffin of the City we used to be. Unsuccessful, infuriating City maybe. But our City.

    I agree take me back to the old days, watching shite football and being the laughing stock.

    It would be a valid point but prices are sky high across the board in football. We may pay a slight premium for certain games but still competitively priced. We could be playing similar to watch shit football and shit players

    I once saw a Jim Davidson show in Torquay - that was once in a lifetime!

    Then I imagine these people that were thinking of going won't be going anymore

    I think the point is that it may go tits up after you've bought your ticket
