Football Prices and Pies


Likes # 0

How do Arsenal get away with charging £4 for a pie? Is it better quality than those sold in other stadia? Is there perhaps, some meat in it? Looking at the list of prices to attend a football match these days I am glad I passed my season ticket on to my son, way back in 1980... By the way I can remember when members of Her Majesty's forces could get half price admission to matches. That was during and for a short period after WW2 of course, I used to wear my army cadet uniform (Liverpool Scottish) uniform and get in for 10 old pence.

If you think that's high, try a good seat and some strawberries and cream at Wimbledon!

A gentleman's singles match could last for 3 or 4 hours with no half time 20 minute malarkey breaks they have at every football matches. I would gladly pay 100 pounds for a good seat for a quarter-final's men's match. (Andy Murray included!) - morddywd.

[The yearly BBC licence fee looks cheap]

It was years ago when you could watch all live sport for the price of a TV Licence.

Anyhow I suppose £4 for a pie is worth it when you can see a different class of football from Arsenal.

They may not be as good as they were but always a delight to watch.

The easiest way to get the money out of your pocket is Fags Booze and Football.

Then off course there is Her Indoors who gets the rest.

Then you could also look back.

Today £4 for a Pie.

50 years ago 80 Pints pints of beer for the same amount.Plus free sport on the TV.

Footballers wages were capped at £20 a week in those days.
