There was some good news for Arsenal fans this week and for the fans of every club that will play in the Premier League from next season onwards and I am definitely not talking about this shadowy meeting of the so-called big five and representatives of an American billionaire who is apparently keen on forming some kind of European Super League.
Thankfully that seems to be a non-starter and Arsenal apparently were not keen at all. No, the good news was about the pricing of away tickets for Premier League games. After a lot of protesting at grounds the EPL and it’s clubs have announced a price cap of £30 on away tickets and that is good news, not just for our pockets but because it shows that the powers that be do realise that the fans are an integral part of what makes football so great.
That is not an accusation that has often been leveled at Arsenal and our fat cat owners and board members, as Arsenal is often labeled the most expensive club in England to follow. So the news reported by The Mirror that our club has taken the extra step of giving travelling Gooners an extra £4 discount which will mean that Arsenal fans will actually pay the least of all Premier League fans for our away tickets.
A small step maybe, but a sign that our club is finally starting to listen to us fans. So what do we tell them next?
