I don't think that it's much of a surprise that our fan want to limit just how many northern shitholes they go to a year.

I'm in, but will probably not make it to the Slubbers Arms this time.

'greed that £30 is steep, I feel like waving a 20's plenty banner.

I wonder if STAR might consider trying to organise some kind of protest at an away game. Perhaps pick the one with the most outrageous pricing and try and get every fan to turn up and tell them they are only paying £20 and cause chaos at the turnstiles as everyone presents a united front.
Obvious issue is everyone buys tickets in advance these days but perhaps the club might get involved and decline to make tickets available in advance ?
It’s probably not going to work but while clubs are allowed to charge so much (and we charge more sensible prices but get no support from other clubs) there needs to be something to draw attention to it.

StellaPlease Club are offering free travel so you could effectively go away and watch your team, who are showing good signs, play away at Huddersfield for £30. And people complain.

If it was £25 People wouldn't be complaining so you're basically quibbling over a fiver which is less than a pint.

Our fans are a joke.


I don't really care about the money - It's a matter of principle. It should not cost £30+ for a ticket for a Championship match.

If people don't make a stand then where does it stop? £35 is only a fiver more. £40 is then only another fiver more. £45 . . .£50.

Twenty is plenty . . . .


The argument would work if all other clubs fans who travel away took your stance...but they don’t.

We finished bottom of the league for away attendance last season...pretty embarrassing really

You think STAR are going to go and do something controversial?

Also, this is the worst idea ever - dictating to a club how much they can charge. How many pints did you have before you wrote that?
