THE FUTURE’S BLEAK is more than happy to fork out out £50 for a ticket to watch the Canaries in the Premier League.
So we’ve now seen our first ticket prices for the coming season. And I can’t say I’m surprised.
Scores are scotching at the idea of paying £50 to visit Stamford Bridge though – heck, they’ve got to pay the bills somehow. Imagine if (when?) we’re an established side, we’ll be looking back thinking ‘I remember way back when…’
Sure, we’re used to paying nearly half that but how it has come as a surprise I don’t quite know. Anyone would think we’ve gone up a league and into what’s oft-thought of as ‘The Best In The World’.
It’s not every league you get to play Wigan one week and then Stoke the next. No Sir-ee.
We should all be happy and willing to pay whatever we’re required. The hard work put in has been worth our pennies, that’s for sure. If someone can explain how we can complain, then still expect our club to stay up when people have stopped pumping money through the turnstiles, then I – along with many others – will be all ears.
But luckily we’ll be able to see many games from the comfort of the refurbed Coach and Horses now that Sky and co have stuck their oar in. Just the fixture list this time, thankfully.
For all the problems it’s caused some of us, there are many, many more who will see the positives of this little intervention. Not least those up in arms of the preceding matter I would imagine.
But again, it’s not like it will affect us too much. No doubt the next round of TV fixtures released will include the odd match against one of the top four and not a lot else from Carra – and our trip to Molineux won’t exactly be on their wish list.
So we’ll be able to go about our business, having to actually pay top prices. I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what I signed up for.
