Ed,

Fo you think that the everyday normal working class person is bring priced out of going to football matches?

I ask as I've just read that Antonio Rudiger is looking to be paid £400k per week. Footballers wages are ridiculous. Salah wants £500k pw at Liverpool and even players like Jarrod Bowen are seeking wages of £100k pw if rumours are to be believed.

I know players have a 15 year career and should earn as much as possible but surely at some point fans have got to say that enough is enough.

{Ed001's Note - without doubt it is becoming a sport that the average working man has to save up for a trip of a lifetime, rather than going regularly. Clubs need to stop paying average players so much.}

The bubble will burst eventually there'll come a point when supporters say "enough is enough I can't continue to pay these silly prices. "

Definitely I stopped going in 92 at £5 a ticket when I experienced redundancy. Now other financial and health issues along with the lack of Saturday afternoon matches, the palava of having to book tickets and not just turn up and be able to stand on the old South bank keeps me away. In reality the game has moved away from casual supporters like me who would have attended the two thirds or so of home 3.00pm games on a Saturday. So I don't think its just money but its played a big part.

Totally agree with you pal. they're killing football in this country.

Agree,
When a kid my parents couldn't afford to buy my bro and I a full season ticket each, so my dad got us both a half season ticket at Christmas.
Then the juniors entrance fee was £2 and the senior was £3.

My parents weren't poor or rich just normal hard working class.

My 1st game - me and 2 friends went to Wolves v Hull in the League Cup. My mates dad gave us £10 between us. We managed to each get a ticket, program and drink and still had £1 left.

Started to go to the Mol regularly in, 1971, the BIll McGary era, what a great team. I think my season ticket cost £8, please correct me if I'm wrong. Great times, went through the Dougan and Chapati brothers so it's not that bad at the moment. I think things will get better. fingers crossed.
pS still have my Wembly ticket for Wolves v Man City league cup final Entrance 80 p.

I never had a season ticket in the the old days. Didn't need one. So far this season I've already spent best part of £800 on tkts. Getting to a point where I might say stuff it and watch on the telly. Especially as I'm sitting next to a couple of idiots every week. Add to that a 20 minute queue for the toilets at half time. Is it really worth it. Well, yes. Provided they start winning occasionally.

Quite agree with all above (80p would have bought about 5-6 pints in them days alpine) and I can't manage the mol for many reasons these days but I'm really enjoying the match commentary via the app, for free, with Mike burrows, Thommo and sometime Chris illumo. Its like being a teenager again but with a totally wolves bias, it's informative humorous and accurate making every game a enjoyable event. But I still had to pay a £2:50 surcharge to the EFL or the Cup game. But seriously the clubs do treat us as cash cows, 2 away shirts, presentation tops, warm up shirts, training tops, travelling tops etc, which of course the kids anker after, but the price of £55 or so a pop is OTT for the quality you get.

Yes Abbey, 80p would have bought you 5-6 pints and 10 woodbines. COYW.
