Apologies for calling you a tw@t - it was tongue in cheek.
I still think that you are also somewhat missing the point. I don't think you can reduce a football club down to a business whose product is to simply bought and sold. Neither should the club see the supporters as customers. Fans are the life of the club and if they are priced out then the club is eating itself.
I don't think you can calculate how many people the heavy tickets prices effect by saying only a few thousand turn up and pay on the day. Surely it's how many don't turn up?
You seem to suggest that high prices is a prerequisite for a successful team and better players but I disagree. I don't have the time to work this out but I wonder what the correlation is between ticket prices and league position in the championship? As Huddersfield showed last season, it is possible to build a successful team with modest ticket prices.
My worry is, like many others, is that if the club start to alienate fan with high prices for tickets, corporate boxes, shirts etc then they will slowly but surely start to erode any sense of goodwill that have been generated and we run the dangers of getting ourselves in a right old mess.
