Would be interesting to see a poll in this thread. I'm curious to know how much support he has amongst us.

Finally piqued my interest as well.  Poll added.

The Kop / Re: Fan Protest--Questions from a Yank
« Last post by HUYTON RED on Today at 11:07:30 AM »
As well as the soaring cost I think the problem is that prices are not standardised.  I think I read somewhere that when Stoke fans went to Hull they paid £15, Everton fans paid £35 and Liverpool fans are now expected to pay £50.

Seems quite wrong that different sets of fans have to pay different amounts to witness the magic of Hull City's football.

Burnley are getting charged £16!!

Or maybe it's a bit of taking for granted.....I'd be blown away if I got to see the Reds play against anyone, maybe some local supporters have lost that fervent desire?  I'll probably be lucky to ever get to see a match, but you can bet if I get to, I won't care who it's against or how good we are at the time.

Or maybe the local support is aging and those who should be taking their place (ie young teenagers and other youngish lads in their 20s) have been priced out of going.

Atmosphere's at football grounds are dire enough these days.  Imagine it without any away fans to at least try to create an atmosphere.  I think £20 for every PL away ticket is hardly going to break the bank of these clubs rolling in with a combined £3,000,000,000 per year.

I'm praying we STICK.

If we sack Brendan and employ a new manager, regardless of who the f**k it is, we will have to give him time until he 'finds his team' and 'brings in his own players' which may take another 2 or 3 seasons. At the end of those 2-3 seasons we could still be trophy less and nowhere near winning the league and the same group of supporters will come out shouting sack again.

I can't be arsed with this never ending cycle, especially when (well in my opinion) we aren't very far away with Brendan.

Two semi finals this season, finishing second in the league last season = disappointing but we aren't a million miles away.

Get a f**king decent forward or two and we will be boss again. Have no doubt about that at all.

It's confused me how against this idea he has become since last season. A formation that worked very well for us has been abandoned. It'd certainly make more sense than starting 0 strikers in a game and having 3 on the bench.

I agree it's been bizarre.  If none of your current strikers are world class then surely it's got to give the opposing central defenders something more to think about if there are two of them.

You'd think the one up top strategy has had us rattling in goals.

And when I say two strikers I don't mean two wingers or midfielders thrown up front for shits and giggles.

£35 for the Hull game at their ground last season, £50 this season on top of all the money given to clubs by the new tv deal is a bit cheeky.

Maybe it's the fact that 'some' have been priced out of the game in recent years?

I'll probably be lucky to ever get to see a match

8 hours on a plane is it?
