We Shall Not Be Moved!
Spurs have announced season ticket prices for next year and on average they have gone up by £27 although some have increased by more. They are also introducing various levels of membership which will be carefully designed to force fans to pay more to increase the likelihood of getting a ticket.
What has really got my back up is the attempt to get season ticket holders within the Paxton Road without a junior to move seat. This is to allow more families to watch Spurs etc. While a very worthwhile cause it is a shame the club is attempting to blackmail its own supporters within the Paxton to move instead of actually doing the right thing and making junior priced tickets avilable throughout the whole ground. Of course the money men at Spurs would never do this even though they will receive huge sums of cash next season from Sky, much more than ever! If Spurs finished bottom they would pocket £30 million, greedy gits.
As an incentive to move they will give you, wait for it, TEN, yes TEN loyalty points as a bonus!!!! Wow! The other incentive is that wherever you move to will be charged at the same price next year as your current Paxton Road price. So if I moved to the East Upper for example I would still pay £579 while the guy next to me would be paying £899. He will be pleased! And then the next year my price will revert to the standard price for the particular part of the ground you sit in. I can't afford to pay £900 for a season ticket - £579 will be a struggle. Why do the club think I chose to sit in the Paxton in the first place? Are they stupid?
People who have made friends with the other people around them are almost certain to be split up and where do they think all us Paxton people will go. There is a long waiting list for the Park Lane and how many people will be giving up their tickets there? Will the new seat be as good as the one I currently occupy? I doubt it.
And thus I will not be moving. I already have 332 loyalty points so a bonus of 10 means nothing to me. The club has scored another spectacular own goal pissing people off all over the ground, be it the people who feel they have to move to the others who find the bloke next to him is paying £300 less than he is for an identical seat.
No one should be bullyed into moving, WE SHALL, WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED!
