Its a vicious circle and as usual its the supporters who get conned. The clubs know how much the supporters are willing to pay to see them play and they take advantage although that is spurred on by the fans demands to buy better and better players to give them the success the fans think they deserve so in a perverse way it is our own fault!
The split in terms of the top clubs in the PL and the also rans is only going to get worse and that will mean even more ridiculous demands from players and therefore even higher ticket prices until at some point more and more fans become sofa supporters.
The big money from the likes of Sky is keeping the situation artificially in control as lower attendance at games is not an issue but once the balance swings too far (and some would say it has already) then watching a big game on telly with only a few thousand rich bu66ers in the stadium will not be the same and only then will things begin to change IMO.
agreed it is a terrible circle but its not only ticket prices that we get charged a fortune for then there is the constant kit changes every season on average 40 quid then the price merchandise in general.
I am of the belief it will come to a head supporters will stop turning up and clubs will go bankrupt only a matter of time the price of competing with the money bag clubs is a non win battle for the rest...........

Interesting (all be it old) articles:
...but seasons come and go, and the grounds are still full with waiting lists a mile long.
At what point do you see the bubble bursting? What then? Everbody reverts to their local clubs and pays £10 to stand in the rain?
I honestly thought the game would hit the wall a couple of seasons back - but it seems that the average supporter is willing to ignore the fact the ignorant gits who play the game treat them with contempt. Loyalty and honesty being the biggest victims of the players egos.
And, while the punter is spending his hard earned cash, he spends his time not even watching the action, but singing songs and pointing at the opposition supporters....
How long before SKY promote the first 'virtual' league? No players wages, no egos. The virtual game - available on your 4g phone - watch at any time of the day. Transfers, sackings, injuries - all controlled by a silicon chip.
Do you want odds that the idea has already been discussed?
