Tight-Wad Spurs Empty Gooner Wallets

Tight-Wad Spurs Empty Gooner Wallets

For the second season in succession, Tottenham have tried to recoup some of their poorly spent transfer kitty by ripping off both Arsenal & Tottenham fans.

In the Carling cup, 45% of the gate receipts goes to the away side, and as with last year the tight-wads from the Lane insisted that the semi-final tickets be priced as high as possible, despite Arsenal Football Club wanting to continue with their usual League Cup ticket price cut.

Tottenham's director Paul Barber was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: 'A cup semi-final against our biggest rivals is just about the biggest game anyone could see at White Hart Lane. Our policy is to take the Carling Cup very seriously. We put out our first team.'

It's all very well to dictate the prices at your own ground, but forcing another team to raise their ticket prices so greedy Spurs fat cats can pocket a few more pennies just seems plain wrong.

Apparently its a rubbish ground so I'm not sure what all the squealing is about. As said, why should we drop our prices? If you support your team, pay the ticket price; if not, stop whinging

Armory, what is really sad is your inability to read. Barber said 'A cup semi-final against our biggest rivals is just about the biggest game anyone could see at White Hart Lane. Our policy is to take the Carling Cup very seriously. We put out our first team.' Using my tenuous grasp of English I can't quite see where he has said our gratest (haha) desire is to win the mighty Carling Cup. Surely every team should try to win every game they play in?

it means: a Carling Cup semi-final against our greatest (?!) rivals - about the only opportunity to go to a Cup final in the odd decade, and a perfect opportunity to line our pockets with the money from our staunch but naive support. Also a rare occasion to win against Arsenal's 2nd string, as they seem to take this competition lightly. What a bunch of clowns.
