Liverpool and Tottenham getting 16.613 tickets each for a stadium that holds 68,000 for the Champions League final.

Even worse, arsenal and Chelsea get 6,000 each in a stadium that holds 68,700 for the Europa League.

Whats worse is the cost of flights/hotels has skyrocketed. Its going to cost the best part of a few grand for most fans.

Another club on the verge of going out of business apparently. Ebsfleet United.

Unpaid wages a few times this year, the whole team put up for free transfer and wages not paid this month again.

It is a bit ridiculous



But from recollection the FA are no better, when we played Preston in the playoff final wasn't it a 5.30 kick off for TV and thus you could not physically travel back to Preston from the game by public transport....

I might be wrong,  but weren't Preston sponsored by Virgin Trains, too.

Elsehwere, news emerging that Sheff Utd borrowed £3m from a member of the Bin Laden family. A small amount of money, and no reports of how closely related to Bin Landen, but raising a few eyebrows!
