Killing off football - Aston Villa - Sunderland on January 5th
Being a regular at the football, especially to Sunderland games, i must admit i never fail to be amazed at how much clubs feel they can charge fans. But Villa - Sunderland on what's certain to be a freezing cold brummie january night really has shocked me. Ignore the fact its midweek and 200 miles from Sunderland, ignore the fact it will be the fourth game in 11 days with a fifth to follow 3 days later and ignore the fact that neither side are seriously in contention for any honours. But don't ignore the fact that they want to charge the away fans £39. Incredible.
