Corporate wankers

Post by Thames » Sat May 18, 2019 6:09 pm

Cup final and as usual loads of empty seats in the corporate bit. So many loyal fans are deprived of a ticket and It will never change. Fkn annoys me!

What a tedious pile o shite that was.
The pub I’m in has two football clubs having their end of season piss ups and there was barely a soul watching.

How times have changed.

I remember fans climbing in to the old Wembley Stadium,risking their lives to get in to watch the game.

F*cking corporate.They have no interest in the game they are watching,while fans lose out being there, that bleed their bloods colours. :(

It used to be the case that every affiliated team in the country, however small, got 2 cup final tickets. I played for Lensbury in the Southern Amateur league in 1980. Although we ran 6 teams, being in Teddington the majority were Chelsea fans. Only two of us were Hammers and we had no Arsenal supporting players, so myself and this other guy were given the tickets. I didn't know him that well but I did later after celebrating up west.

I bet that's a thing of the past now.

So annoying Terry. With respect to Watford, if it was us or another highly supported team then many true supporters would miss out to this shit. We had it with the play offs. Spurs and Lvpl have just 16000 tickets for their final. Everything else are people who have no interest. Criminal! (not Lvpl supporters guv!)

You're quite right Mr Pale. Our league seemed to have got 2 tickets every year, we never saw any of them though!

To limit clubs that have huge season ticket holders is a crime in my book. Imagine Shrewsbury v Us in a final. Both get the same allocation. Bonkers! (obviously I said us as we are the biggest supported club in the entire world :D )

Even when we had a half decent allocation for the Blackpool play-off game, some of us still had to become Blackpool members to get our tickets ;)

There will never be enough for the well supported clubs

I relocate the corporate seating out of site of the principle to television cameras. Those empty seats either side of the tunnel just look a disgrace!

Probably why our fans had the hump back in 1923 just storm the fucking ground.

I was in the mighty Ilford and District league Div 2.

And we got 2 tickets every year !

I hasten to add it WAS the second tier..there was no Prem.
