Then, they’d listen to TokyoBlue or BeijingBlue more than me!
While I admire the club for having grown the global footprint of the club, they have to realize that 90% of game day fans are locals…as in day travelers…not tourists.
In fact, when I was last at the City Store at the ground with my son, a tour bus rolled up, parked right outside and a bunch of Asian tourists got off. Half of them still had their United scarves on from their last stop at the United Store!!!
They don’t realise that. They don’t want Bill and Ben the local Ancoats pals who go for a pre match pint in their local, get the bus to the ground, watch the game and then return to the local in a routine they’ve had for 30 years.
They want Bill and Ben from Chicago who are on the trip of a lifetime who will do a tour, buy £200 in merchandise and £20-£30 in food/drink.
And they are doing everything they can do ensure that happens.
They look at the spreadsheets and see what Liverpool take on a match day and think we need to get to that level. Wankers the lot of them.
