To pay or not to pay. This is the question?

After the brilliant interview with the General (can’t criticise him he’s got a tank!) I couldn’t help but consider all the massive benefits we will have behold and enjoy, both on and off the pitch, in the future.

However, we currently have some of the cheapest ticket prices around. Seems inevitable that to finance these improvements we might have
to pay more. Are we willing to do this?

  • Wouldn’t have a problem with a price hike, certainly not with the current owner/board now operational. I’d be happy to pay more for my season tickets, safe in the knowledge that the extra revenue brought into the club would be used for the purposes intend

  • glensider, you have previously said you are in the fortunate position to absorb higher prices. A lot of fans are not. VOTH has made a valid argument about how little difference the admission prices make in the overall scheme of things. So although we are

  • Well said UTV. Villa need the fans to turn up and fill the ground and that will give Villa half a chance of being more successful before any money is spent or prices are raised.

  • Fair comment utv-sotc, but there comes a point where you have to stop reducing prices etc. This is a business, not a free hand out store.
