Well it might not have been a massive victory for Arsenal fans in the grand scheme of things, but I must admit that I was surprised as well as delighted to see that some pressure from us long suffering supporters has actually paid off for once.
As reported in the Evening Standard, the fury and frustration of the Arsenal fans after the club tried to sneakily add on a charge to next year’s season tickets because we are playing Barcelona in the next phase of the Champions League caused a backlash, with many contacting the club in outrage to protest.
And for once the powers that be at Arsenal have listened to us lowly plebs and scrapped the Barca surcharge, claiming that they did this because they felt that the fans might have been unaware of club policy. While this might feel like a small victory, I wonder if it shows that clubs are still aware of how important the fans are to them and their money making.
Maybe next we could use this new found fan power to demand that they actually start using the massive cash reserves gathering dust and actually splash the cash on some big transfer additions?
