Most definitely, I could never support any other club.

In all seriousness, though, I would have to rethink my stance on supporting United if we/they lost our/their contract with our/their official global noodle partner in Nissin Food Group™ - I cannot allow myself to even ponder the possibility of us/them getting relegated.

Like I said previously,I cannot discuss football on a serious level with anyone who supports Man Utd.

It's this kind of Americanisation that's completely ruining the footer for overbearing standpats like me.

Hotdogs give me the energy I need to stay till overtime if we're winning sometimes. I love soccer, nothing better than looking at the player's sweaty uniforms at the end of a contest knowing that they've given their all for the brand and that Coach Kinnear made successful draft picks once again.

Part time vegans are better than vegetarians and meat-eaters though. I think. And importantly, he's vegan when he's actually playing football.

Very few footballers consume liver or pork scratchings during a game, they very rarely merrily quaff a quart of butter-milk during the 90 minutes (+ injury time) either. All footballers are vegan. In a way.

A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
Being serious for a sec...When I grew old enough to realise my indoctrination and was able to make my own choice, and still choose Bournemouth, I did so fully expecting to never see my side much above League One!

But then we got to the Sky promised land of magical unicorns, and now I've had my hit I couldn't possibly dirty myself with any of that lower league rubbish again

:cool1:

In what way is it 'having a laugh' to point out that the Coca Cola League etc constitutes an inferior product? It's self-evident. There's a very good system for judging the relative quality of respective divisions. It's call the Football League pyramid. The best franchises rise to the top, and the weakest franchises eke out their pathetic existences in the lower reaches.

I can understand going to see Crew play if it was an economic necessity (eg you are on unemployment benefits) but for most people it just doesn't make sense to willingly pay for an experience that can be beaten by a short trip to, say, the Etihad Stadium. And don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about. My dad got me an executive box for an FA Cup game against Warwick or Coventry (?) a couple of years ago, and I just couldn't believe how bad their team was, and their branding in the match day programme was just as underwhelming.

I think consumers are finally waking up to this truth, and soon teams like yours will become a thing of the past. And it won't be a moment too soon.

Why do you PL clubs insist on calling yourselves 'franchises'? That is truly pathetic as you called it.

Still better than overpriced prawns.

L1 and 2 are also better, because you can, in some grounds, pay to stand up without having purchased an expensive seat beforehand.

You can purchase an expensive standing ticket instead.

I can understand people paying to watch some of the best players in the UK for £30-50 but people paying £15-30 for Champ, L1, L2 and Conference football is where the real rip off is IMO.

£30-50? Wasn't it £64 at Arsenal? I am sure that most other clubs in the PL charge more than £50 as well.

My point was that people go to say Old Trafford, pay whatever it is for a seat and then spend the entire game stood up. At least some grounds have proper terraces lower down.

It's been £43 at Norwich for some games this season - I think that's what we paid for tickets v Everton in December.

Football on the whole is overpriced in this country. If the Germans can do it cheaper then we should be able to too.

Pretty much twice what it is at Priestfield, and there is an outside chance that Norwich and Gills will be in the same division next season

Yeah but I'd also say that £20 for League 1 or League 2 (it's £21 at Leyton Orient this Saturday) is a rip off. The whole of English football is overpriced for fans.

£20 to watch Gillingham. And you're taking exception to prices in the PL. Should look closer to home I think.

I agree that 20 sovs is overpriced for Priestfield, but compared to some of the ridiculous prices you pay in the PL, it is a bargain, especially when you factor in the number of goals there have been in our home games, and the distinct lack of anything at the so called Theatre of Dreams

But you don't get to watch global superstar celebrities like Wayne Rooney, David De Gea, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson. You pay to see cobblers play window cleaners. Oh the humanity.

The way you have been playing, our Bradley outshines the lot of 'em (more goals than Rooney)

Yeah I couldn't remember what I paid for Barnet.

In fairness to Norwich, 4 (I think) seasons ago I paid £19 to see them play Wigan in the EPL. But that was midweek and Wigan brought about 50 fans so wasn't exactly a "demand game".

But since they got back into the Premier League this season, prices seem to have jumped to £40 average from more like £30 average 3 years ago.

Just seems churlish to criticise Premier League prices when you're happy to pay what you do in L1 or L2 for away games. Especially when in a lot of them you don't even get to sit (even if you wanted to).

Lot of non-league football is pretty well priced at £5-10, you can have a pint on the terraces and have a laugh with your mates.

Football's "shit", but the players aren't on £1000 a week (and still shit).

I am old school, which means I much prefer to stand, and I can choose where I want to stand.

We all know that the standard isn't as good, so I really don't get your point there. It seems that you, like a lot of PL fans, are adopting an arrogant BBB attitude.
