Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

Considering its nearly £20 to watch games in the conference, that is decent value considering Palace are top 2 in the league and Stoke are a premier league club.

I agree vis a vis the overpriced nature of tickets though. Its corrupt at all levels of the game these days. Whilst £60 tickets in the premier league are bad, £20-25 tickets in League 2 isn't far behind, especially for the level of football they're at.

Depends if it's a Class A, Class B, Class C or Class D game.

Example, on the Everton website, they have the West Brom game at Goodison Park down as a Class D fixture with adult tickets starting £31.

A Class A fixture like the Merseyside derby will be seeing tickets mainly selling for more and require more stubs to get a ticket.

The last Premier League game I went to was Arsenal VS Swansea last month at the Emirates and the match ticket cost me £35

Chamakh to West Ham could work. If there is someone who could get something out of a slow, lumbering striker, its fat Sam. Joe Cole however, is a weird deal. No pace, doesn't defend well.
Fuck are you talking about?

Edit:are you on teamtalk??? lol, just because i did it once dosen't mean i do it all the time

Tottenham: Season Ticket £730 - £1,845 Matchday Ticket £32 - £81
West Brom: Season Ticket £349 - £449 Matchday Ticket £25 - £39
West Ham: Season Ticket £480 - £850 Matchday Ticket £36 - £67
Wigan: Season Ticket £255 - £310 Matchday Ticket £20 - £22

Some pretty frightening figures there. When you take into account City and Liverpool charged around £28 only 5 seasons back to United fans, the increase (£48 at Anfield, £55 at City) is incredible. Norwich, Fulham, Swansea, QPR and Reading also charge a pathetic amount considering the size of the club and magnitude of any game played against them.

As far as I know for United fans:

Wigan is the cheapest at £27. Sunderland and Stoke charge around £30-35, Everton charge close to £39. Everyone else is £40 or more. City, Chelsea, Arsenal and QPR are the dearest at over £50. Spurs and Fulham charge £49, West Ham, Swansea & Villa charge £45 and the likes of Newcastle and West Brom charge between £40-43.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

Norwich are the worst this season, £45 for a match ticket i think it was, and not exactly an hour down the road.

Don't mind paying a bit extra for london based games because getting the train down early and sitting around London drinking with your mates before the match is good fun.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

It was £50 for United, some old mates I knew were chatting about it. Reminds me why I knocked it all on the head. I respect people in a position/committed to paying those prices, but I just accepted that as long as I kept paying the prices I'd be allowing them to charge more and more each season if they desired. Would sooner save money and go FC where its cheaper and I enjoy the place than cripple myself financially with less and less friends prepared to go with me.

Cup games thankfully provide for cheaper tickets, e.g West Ham tomorrow is £20 for United fans compared to £45 in the league. I suppose with London you also have the advantage of booking early and saving a fair bit. Birmingham/Leicester/Crewe/Chester is around £8-20 return depending on how early you book most of the time, but places like Southampton and Norwich are far more hassle to get to for a cheap price.

David McNasty strikes again.

To be fair, the cheapest Norwich home ticket for me was against Wigan (£19). I suppose that is one good argument for Whelan and co's continued existence in the premier league, less away fans = cheaper tickets for home supporters. The downside of this was a terrible atmosphere.

The most expensive ticket for me this season so far was against Citeh (£49), expensive day out but at least the game was highly entertaining. Still a fucking rip off though.
