    Think your spot on there Runcorn. This nonsense that the home club can only charge away fans the same price as home fans is the problem. Especially for small clubs.

    A home club should be able to charge it’s fans what it wants and as long as the away fans are not charged more than the price they charge away fans at their place then that seems fair to me.

    If it wasn’t Sundays crowd will because not many will pay on the day.

    £24.00 to watch Bury. Someone is having a laugh …………….. :angry:[/quote]

    £24.00 to watch a third tier football match is ridiculous irrespective of who it is against.

    £15 should be the max for the bottom two leagues, £20 max for the Championship and £25 for the top division.

    Ignoring the childish mud-slinging further up this thread, I agree with Horc – admission fees are too high. However, unlike the greed league, the further down the pyramid you go, the more you rely on ticket sales to generate revenue.

    The DW probably costs as much to maintain today as it would do if you were in the top flight hosting Chelsea on Sunday instead of Bury. The same goes for the cost of the training ground and all the other infrastructure that goes with running a professional football club. The only real difference in outcome is wages, and here is where it gets tricky.

    The championship is littered with clubs who have ongoing parachute payments following premier league relegation. They have a head start over everyone else, and can buy up the best players. Newcastle did it last season. Villa are doing it this season. There is a ripple effect in wages. The likes of Bristol City want to keep their best players away from these Championship predators, so they offer them new contracts on bigger wages in an effort to stand still. If that doesn’t work, then they have a few quid to buy a replacement, and they look further down the league structure at the likes of Powell, Grigg, Morsey etc. Wigan don’t want to sell, so they offer them new contracts on more money, and Bristol look elsewhere. Wigan then keep their players (great!), but have just given them a pay rise and need to find the money to pay them.

    Where does it come from? TV Money – no. It can only come from the only revenue stream available these days and that’s the paying supporter. However, there’s less of them year on year, so its a fine balancing act between squeezing your supporters for as much as you can without losing them. The cheap ST’s and the higher matchday prices seem a good way of doing this, and although £24 a game seems high, £200 or whatever it was represents a very low figure for 23 games.

    What the owners are essentially saying is that if you want to watch the Latics, stump up £200 for the year and then we can jack the matchday prices up and get more money off away fans, who are effectively subsidising your very cheap Season Ticket.

    Positives – Going out there & actually playing to win a game of football. Unlike last season when we played to avoid defeat.

    Negatives – Gift of a goal for their equaliser.

    Positives: Scored 4 and could easily have been more. The link up play between Jacobs and Powell looks promising.

    Negatives: Lost a few defensive set pieces again same as Tuesday night. One led to the goal.

    Mutty you have come up with sensible reasoned response there that would merit a posting all of its own.
    It does leave me wondering we can survive against the falling revenue with our absent sugar daddy.

    Can we have your old one for over the canal. Ours has never been big enough to get the fans over after a match, especially as there always seems to be someone coming the other way with a bike.

    You can have it horc with all the hold ups & traffic jams its had me in over the last 13 or so years.

    The old bridge is being shut for 12 months for maintenance, so it will be new bridge only. We should have both bridges up & running by winter ’18.
