“Are you having a laugh? Why don’t you put some aside for people who can’t afford season tickets?”
“Wow!!! Could have done with this!! Oh well, will probably have to wait for the season to start before I can get to a game.”
“First away day, pre-season friendly match at Walsall, modest resident of League Two (English D4). 3,425 spaces in the visitor parking lot. Places all sold in less than 4 hours, without even going through the box sale to the general public. My club”
“Didn’t take long. Was hoping to go too”
