#LUFC - It’s things like these that really piss me off Ken. £31 for a Carling Cup game. Fine, I can handle that. It’s against Manyoo. It’ll sell out even if every season ticket holder decides to boycott.
But an extra quid to “activate my season card”? How do you justify that? You’re not posting a ticket. You’re not printing a ticket. An AUTOMATIC payment gateway is ticking a box on a database so that my swipe card will activate a turnstile.
Nobody’s even looked at it. But that’s another pound. Another pound for every season ticket holder. That’s at least fifteen grand. £15,000 EXTRA, that you’ve got no way of justifying. From just one game.
And why exactly can’t we afford players’ wages, improved contracts or signings?
