    A friend's season ticket has gone up 50percent for the same seat...1500 from 999. Outrageous.....

    Thats roughly £79 a game :eek: That's the sort of dough people would fork out for a cup final ticket. Is your friend willing to pay that ?

    well no...he's a longstanding Spurs fan and also antiracism/homophobia campaigner (Proud Lillywhites / GFSN) within the club, so doubly committed...but his facebook post was saying he might pack it in. Season ticket was about £500 odd in 2006 supposedly

    The thing i've noticed is when you alienate/price out a fan, the club lose friends and family of that supporter too. Sometimes a generation of supporters just chuck it in, very sad.

    Im going soft as i get older. I do have empathy for rival fans being turned over by the club they have followed all there lives. Gentrification and now football shoving up two fingers to the working classes :mad: I would stand with any West ham,, Spurs ,Arsenal and Chelsea fans to fight back. Loyalty aside i reckon you would too!

    Fair enough if they were on a bully up. Iv'e had run ins with all mentioned over the 40 years iv'e been going, mostly arranged and me being willing. It all seems a bit daft now in hindsight, many of the blokes i fought against are now people i get on with when i see them out and about.

    Just spoke to a bloke I know who has been a season ticket holder for 35 years. His has gone up 50% as well :facepalm:

    Also he said there are '8 phases' of ticket allocation. He is in phase 3 despite (as mentioned) being a 35 year ticket holder. He had a really good seat location and expects to lose that to the first 2 phases.

    Shabby

    West Ham - No. Andrew Swallow.
    Chelsea - No. Racist fanbase complemented by the staggeringly hypocritical anti-Yid campaigner David Baddiel.
    Arsenal - What do you think?
    Millwall - Sure.
    I'd stand with most other clubs' fans, just not those examples.

    Fair enough. I didn't know Chelsea were still like that
    I think it's important to have a local rival and someone to hate in football :D It would be fun for a while for me to see West ham die, long term i would miss the chance of playing and beating them and all the other things that go with it.

    Harry Kane's return:

    8 weeks
    6 weeks

    4 weeks

    He'll be back in training after two, because he's Harry Fucking Kane :cool:

    Ah, so we can still expect England to win the World Cup then.

    The last time I attempted to get a ticket for the Bridge it was £80 for a restricted view seat against Bolton which was live on Sky.
    Pub job. Which has led to this...


    In a nutshell I'm watching it happen as the family are priced out.

    I can't make too much comment here as I don't go anymore but it's never been nice to be associated with racist arseholes because of the football team you chose to support.

    Again to stop this thread from derailing I will add here that as much as it grates me to say it, Spurs (and Liverpool) have really improved this season and that Son geezer is massively underrated.

    Only if we can find another 10 Harry Kanes.

    Seriously. I've even seen video of him in goal in training and he's not half bad...

    I've noticed a consensus that he's the only sure fire starter if everyone's fit. Cases can be made for Cahill, Stones, Walker, Alli and Sterling, and cases can be made for their alternatives too. Vardy would appear to be the back-up number ten, and failing that Rashford?

    I definitely wouldn't have Dele as an automatic starter. One of my few minor gripes with Poch is that he gets treated like that at Sours tbh.

    Don't get me wrong, I think he's fantastic - I just think that sometimes a different choice would been better.

    My point entirely: no one else can claim an automatic spot, which differs markedly from the Golden Generation of Terry, Ferdinand, Cole, Beckham, Lampard, Gerrard and Rooney.

    Oh look, none of Lamela, Foyth or Gazzaniga were picked for Argentina.

    Oh look, Argentina lost 6-1.

    Burn, fuckers. Burn.
