United - Differing Policies

United - Differing Policies

Glancing around the Premier League, it`s been noticed that there is a general inclination, despite the financial constraints many people are living under, that ticket prices for next season are on the increase.

You have to ask, with the spending money in people`s pockets diminishing, if this is a wise move, is Premier League football in danger of becoming a luxury commodity for some rather than a way of life?

What makes matters worse, with regards to Manchester United, is that it has been noticed that whilst ticket prices at Old Trafford are on the increase the exact opposite is happening to the ticket prices over in Tampa at the other sporting institution the Glazer family own.

It`s something that the Manchester United Supporters Trust have picked up on with a prominent member of the reference trust, Duncan Drasdo, remarking to the media,

"Fans have seen prices rise 55 per cent since the Glazers took over and at a time when the club has enjoyed great commercial success."

"They recently slashed prices by as much as 30 per cent for many fans of Tampa Bay and have received 28,000 e-mails from United fans asking for price reductions."

"But they aren`t listening to us."


Have the Glazer`s ever done such a thing as listen to us?

As long as people pay they will continue to raise the price. With so many fans wanting them out, is it the wisest choice to**** them off even more? The Glazers are seemingly fueling their own demise.

You are victims of your own success - as long as their are tourists willing to come to old trafford and pay the ludicrous prices, the Glazers will continue to fill the ground - meanwhile, all of your genuine fans either refuse to line their pockets or can't afford to go. It's a vicious circle that shows no sign of ending - the only way to lose the tourists is to have a few years in the doldrums, something I'm sure will happen when fergie goes. But with all of the debt, you can't afford to be unsuccessful, even for one season. It's a no-win situation.
