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

They could've chose better Liverpool players surely? Get Gerrard in at least. Not really convincing that they're the greatest club in the world with Shelvey, Allen, Hendo and Johnson representing Shelvey half and half with Scholes is hilarious, kill it with fire.

Sir Alex Ferguson urges football authorities to investigate Tottenham’s signing of former MU defender Zeki Fryers from Standard Liege

“I think it’s a blatant manipulation of the rules. It has Daniel Levy’s fingerprints all over it.”

Arsenal's cheapest season ticket more expensive than most clubs dearest ticket.

At least the board do their bit to entertain the northern fans by giving our top players to the Manchester trust fund.

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

Yup, most clubs have a category scheme which dictates the price. Obviously United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and now City occupy the Category A matches, with the odd derby such as Villa-Wolves sometimes being allocated Category A status (god knows why, but it was).

Tbh whilst I wish people had enough sense to realise we as fans can control the game effectively and ensure clubs can longer charge beyond what they should (Swansea went from 35 to 45 for away fans this season), as long as fans pay the prices then the clubs have no reason to not charge what they are. I can laugh all day at Spurs being charged something daft like 55 for Arsenal away, but if they take 3000 then what's to stop Arsenal realising they can charge 2-3 more the next season and still likely see a full turnout from Spurs?

I do really get annoyed by the people who talk a big game in terms of saying they'll boycott and trying to rally people into voting with their feet and not going to games, only to backtrack and end up paying the prices. Either boycott and stand by your principles, or pay the prices because you want to even if you wish it could be cheaper. Don't talk about principles and taking a stand if you aren't going to act on it.

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

That Johnson/Giggs at the end looks like a boxer. RVP/Allen also looked creepy.

EDIT- I used to have a season ticket at Carrow Road from 1998-2007 (stopped going regularly in 2006 when I moved up north to Durham and gained weekend work commitments). Back then it was affordable because of youth prices, student discount and (later on) reasonable adult prices. I think the most I've ever paid was 350 back in 04-05.

I simply can't justify 500 + for a season ticket, not to mention train fairs from Leicester (where I live now) every other weekend. Having said that, I did a lot of away games back when I lived in Norfolk, so it was often weeks in succession. If I was still going every week now then I wouldn't be able to eat and would struggle to pay rent.

Okay, that's an exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

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

I still tried to go regularly during my first year of uni. Midweek games were the real pain in the arse. Wouldn't get back to Piccadilly till around half 10 at the best of times, so was then waiting on either an 11pm or midnight train back to Chester, and then catching the last train there back up to uni. Couple of times I didn't get back till around 6am due to missing a train or the dreaded bus replacement service.

By 2nd year I'd already decided to knock it on the head from a finance and enjoyment standpoint and just resigned myself to picking and choosing games. Rent and trying to maintain a social life on top of increased workload meant I just gradually went less and less and really I settled for coming home once every 3 weeks to a month and just going to a game then with trains being cheaper and the commute back far more manageable.

My local side Grimsby Town are charging 16.00 a ticket for Blue Square Premier football but you could see Scunthorpe for 17.00 and there 2 divisions higher and only a 30 minute extra drive

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

we're midway through the season, yes?

midway awards?

Manager of the Year -
Player of the Year -
Best youth player (21 or under) -
Best summer signing -
Worst summer signing -
Goal of the season -
Biggest surprise -
Biggest disappointment -
(Any) Prediction for the 2nd half -

Throw in best XI of the year, thus far. IF you want.



Manager of the Year - Steve Clarke (WBA) and David Moyes (EVR)
Player of the Year - Robin Van Persie (shoutout to Felliani)
Best youth player (21 or under) -
Best summer signing - Robin Van Persie
Worst summer signing - Nuri Sahin
Goal of the season -
Biggest surprise - Everton with just 3 losses, RVP staying healthy
Biggest disappointment - Moussa Dembele, Chelsea
(Any) Prediction for the 2nd half - Everton finish 4th


I think need to think of young players, and great goals.

Dembele's been good. Just injured a lot. Should have put Clint Dempsey instead
