I mainly worry we miss out on a generation of fans. Where do the passionate ST holders come from if they got priced out as a teenager? Will the South Korean fans keep coming in numbers after Sonny?Your post certainly made me chuckle...appreciate the response. The post was mildly on the ageist side, I must admit, my humblest apologies, sir.
Yeah, it’s the sea of grey hair that I’m referring too. It’s just a bit, come on now, let others have a chance. Don’t get me wrong, and this is where I take some of what I said back, some of these guys have spent a hell of a lot of money over their lifetime and probably even more in emotions (probably yourself included?) And it’s a bit rich of me to tell em to fuck off. BUT, we do need lads to have a laugh, or all that will be left will be the ‘there for the experience’ spectator and to me, that just ain’t football.
So I think league games will be a closed shop for a while. But that’s normal. Like you say people have earnt the right to those tickets but they are really not bringing the noise to league games.
A couple of years without CL football would trim down the tourists. United, Woolwich, Chelsea, Liverpool have all had those spells recently. Look at some of the crowds Woolwich get now......
So probably our time when you look at the experience/ age of the squad. And the football cycle continues.
