The sad thing is in the grand scheme of things ticket sales don't account for very much of the clubs revenue at all.I can see where you are coming from and I'd rather it went to him than the glazers, but not when it's at the cost of the real everyman. Back in the day it was no Biggie for a bloke who worked in a factory for feck all all week to take his lad to the match but now it's a special birthday treat for those at the bottom. People have been priced out if it for what? It's still essentially the same thing it always was, just so some talentless little gobshite can have a new rolls every year and retire at 30?
Keane was right when he said where is the motivation for these lads? Some 20 year old who has achieved nothing yet with all that money? Those sorts of perks and salaries should be for the elite, not every goon who can run around a bit, the sort of players who are actually missed when out injured or suspended not the ones who it wouldn't even be noticed.
They have put a freeze on ticket prices haven't they?
Either way they could afford to lower them so it's affordable for young lads to get the next generation more involved like they do in the Bundesliga.
In relation to wages of players it doesn't seem to affect the motivation of players at well run clubs and with Keane's opinions I'd take a kilo of salt.
He couldn't motivate players when he was a manager because he can't relate to anyone who doesn't live up to his standards and is terrible at man management.
