I'm a Blackpool fan.
Cookey has this right about the owners taking the club's money
We succeeded on a small budget under grayson and then Holloway, and it was only limited investment from a guy called Belokon which got us going, and not from the owners who are the Oyston family.
Belokon is off the scene now.
The owners took £23.5 million from the club in the accounts ending 2012.
They have just announced a £15m profit.
The Oystons own a network of companies which feed off the club, charging whatever they like for 'services rendered'.
Holloway left this season because Oyston wouldn't put some of the premiership cash back into the team and build the club infrastructure.
Appleton bailed out after two months for the same reason.
Many players are out of contract this summer and will not be offered new deals.
It's rumoured by those close to the team that the playing budget, very low by even Championship standard, will be significantly cut.
The pitch is a disgrace and the training facilities, to quote the Independent, would shame a non-league club.
Nearby Fleetwood Town are far more professional off the pitch.
There is massive discontent among fans.
A new supporters group has been formed to articulate that concern.
Performances hon the pitch have been poor, with many players known to be wanting away.
Season Ticket sales would have dropped significantly.
This price cut is of course being welcomed but also seen as an attempt to placate the growing anger.
It remains to be seen what the impact of all this will be next season.
Meanwhile the rest of the football world somewhat naively applauds the club.
This IS a good price, but the owners are utter hypocrites, publicly opposing 'greed in football' while cynically taking the majority of the club's money for themselves
I gave up my Derby County season ticket two years ago because the price was going up every season but the football was just getting worse.

The clubs would just find a way around wage caps like they have found ways around the financial fair play rules.

I read in the press yesterday that Man Utd want to try and sign Ronaldo, to get round the financial fair play rules GM Motors (Man Utds new main sponsor) would pay his wages.
Thats a good post above but wage caps would never get passed in this country as the world's best players would leave to play in Saudi Arabia/UAE etc and the fa will not allow their cashcow to disappear.

This offer from Blackpool is nothing more than a desperate owner trying to fill the ground as he knows he's taken all their money and not spent a light.
My Hull City ticket £440 in the West Stand, this month only.

£195 to go watch Blackpool!! You're having a laugh right?

Football allegiances aside, this is a cracking deal. I'm no fan of Blackpool, but have to say; well played Blackpool!

Football was always historically a working class game, but the working class have gradually been priced out of the game by the crazy prices. My local club is currently a league 1 club. I had a season ticket for most of my life, but I just refuse to pay the prices they charge now. Much like this offer, they used to offer a deal where children got a free ticket with an adult season ticket. When they were relegated from the championship to league 1 they removed that offer, but kept ticket prices the same (and sold half the squad).

I looked at the cost, my ticket was going to cost £480, the kids £80 each (previously £5 or £10 a year for "junior membership", then they would get free season tickets with adult tickets). That's £640! (plus travel expenses, plus food and drink, plus extra match day expenses, and the added cost of going to close by away matches and potentially play-off finals, etc!). To watch LEAGUE 1! (or Division 3, for those of us old enough to remember football before the Premier League and Sky ruined it). There's been a price freeze since we were in the premier league, so now I was going to be watching a bunch of players I'd never heard of (because the board sold the entire first team), against third division opposition, and I'd have to pay nearly twice as much as I'd paid when we where playing Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, etc, week in and week out!

I'm not a glory hunter, I've been a season ticket holder when my team were in the division below this one! But when you sit back and analyse the price of what you are buying, and the cost and what you could spend that money on instead of standing in a half empty stadium on a freezing cold Tuesday night watching some team that was non-league 2 years ago spanking you 3-0, you realise the madness of it all! I just thought to myself "sod it", and for the first time for as long as I can remember I effectively became a fan rather than a supporter. Don't get me wrong; I miss it, and I worry that my kids are missing out on something I took for granted as a kid (I think it was £1.50 entrance fee back then!). But I think the only effective form of protest against something you disagree with is to withdraw your financial support, even if that is partially cutting your nose off to spite your face!

Something seriously needs to be done about this (especially in these economic times!). American sports all have wage caps (not individual player wage caps, but, for example in NBA, they total caps based on what the league averaged in revenue in the previous year. A team can pay an individual $30,000,000 per year if they wish, but they'll suffer in other areas because of the cap on total team spending). Most of the American sports also make exceptions in the wage caps for local players (again, to use NBA as an example; take a player from a local university/college, who came through the pick and has stayed loyal to the club. That club doesn't have to include his wages in the wage cap, no matter how much they pay him - this encourages teams to "grow their own" and not steal youth from other teams, and also helps fans feel more attached to the players knowing they are unlikely to leave (because their "home" team can afford to pay them more than any other team as their wages aren't included in the cap!)).

There are players in League 1 earning £20k+ a week (not many I'll grant you, but a few!). That's the reason clubs charge five hundred odd quid for a season ticket for division three football! That's the reason, on the majority of Saturdays, almost every football ground in the country (with the exception of a few top teams) are half empty! That's the reason clubs are constantly taking away free offers and incentives aimed at bringing through the next wave of supporters (the kids - free tickets, etc).

A wage cap won't solve all of football's problems, but it would surely help bring a lot of supporters back (which is a start!), and tbh, if it means that the teams who have a billion plastic fans all sod off and set up their own "European Super League", all the better! Maybe we can return to the days when clubs could win by hiring good managers, developing local talent and putting in some elbow grease to win a league title instead of buying it!

Wow - you really are (or were) into your football!
I simply can't fathom why anyone would stand and watch football - unless it is a great match between world class teams. I simply cannot get excited about mediocre football, played in mediocre stadiums...
I would much rather put the money towards something truly enriching for my kids (kayaking, mountaineering, a music festival etc etc).
I guess football has moved beyond the realms of the common man. It's a shame - but it is also an opportunity. Give kids 45 minutes of match of the day, and be done with it. Let them do something better with their time (then hopefully, when they grow up, they will have more interesting things to talk about than the 'footie').
