The price of Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They charge a lot for admission
To watch our average teams
In an over hyped premier league
Because that is what it seems
They’re knocked out in the Champions League
But praised for getting that far
They all believe they’re good enough
To which I find bizarre

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The price they charge are scandalous
And even in the championship
Thirty odd quid for a match ticket
And more for the fans round trip
It wont be long before the bubble bursts
Coz prices are far too high
They’ve been ripping off the fans for years
How do these clubs justify

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The amount of money these players so call earn
Has gone beyond a joke
They’re bleeding football clubs dry
It’s a wonder they don’t go broke
Four hundred grand a week
For a player who cannot pass a ball
Talk about stealing a living
Tells the story overall.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But the fans they bear the brunt of this
And like fools they continue to pay
But many are so dedicated
They watch them home and a away
I always say good luck to them
But for me I’ve been outpriced
I can’t afford the ticket cost
My football is sacrificed.

The cost of football is getting beyond the average person with ticket prices rising. Were paying to watch average footballers earning an absolute fortune.
