My word.... £2.50!

It's amazing how prices have increased about inflation. 

Arsenal being £90. A pound a minute for a game of football 

we used to pay 50 p to watch from the school boys enclosure to watch top flight football

I can remember paying £2.50 to stand on the East End in 1990ish.

Open end was £3.00 for some reason?

If I remember the atmosphere inside football grounds at that time correctly, I imagine there weren’t too many people visiting Ashton Gate one week and then going to Trumpton the following week unless your name is Roger Malone.

I believe it used to be a reasonably common occurrence in the 50’s and 60’s. Then we got promoted to the top flight in the 70s and the ‘Gas’ who would watch us one week and their own shower the next suddenly forgot where Eastville was.

£5 in the dolman stand 1989 went up to a tenner when we got promoted

I do hope they aren't going to sack Mr Garner during this unprecedented global pandemic. Would be a horrible thing to do.

He's also doing a cracking job.

I can`t imagine they would. He`s doing everything the vast majority of Bristolians have asked of him and definitely taking the club in the right direction.
