Fulham - What Light Does This Show Us In?

The third round of the FA Cup is the one round most clubs look forward to.

Especially the teams from outside the top two divisions. To be drawn against a Premier League team, at home, is what many wish for.

So let`s take a look at our opponents, Sheffield Wednesday.

The Yorkshire side play at Hillsborough, one of the largest grounds in the country, a ground that rocks when more than half full so what better idea than to drop prices dramatically to attract more spectators for our FA Cup game?

I mean we`re not exactly the biggest of draws are we?

Sadly, prices have been reduced, with adult admission being £15 and children £5.

So why the sadly?

Well Sheffield Wednesday wanted to charge adults £10 but Fulham rebuked the idea hence the title - what light will it show us in?

Couldn't we have met then halfway and gone for £12.50?
Al Billy
£10 would have encouraged more to go especially when you consider travel expenses as well!

I personally think it stinks ... I mean while there will be a decent-ish crowd there what real difference will that extra fiver make to wednesday or the share in it fulham will get .. i mean fulham get neigh on 50mil a year just from being in the prem, would an extra few 10,000's reli make any difference.Plus the attendence is bound to be lower at £15 than it would have been at £10, so does anyone actually benefit?

It's a poor decision by Fulham to insist on £15, your right tommyg the extra that Fulham will get is paltry. Better to get more in the ground.
Edens
like I said why not meet them halfway?
Al Billy
the sad thing is I can't see us taking more than 1000 so the difference is a total of £5000, paltry in Premier League terms!
