Protesters hopeful on ticket prices

Posted on

first_img Press Association Football Supporters Federation (FSF) chief executive Kevin Miles attended the meeting with Scudamore along with representatives of fans’ groups from Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal. Miles said: “I’d like to say we’ve won an immediate reduction in all Premier League ticket prices – that’s not the case but we have been able to express, in the meeting and in terms of the numbers outside, the strength of feeling on the issue of ticket prices. “We got a response that was ‘willing to listen’. They shared some of our concerns and agreed to ongoing dialogue to try to come up with some solutions. We regard this as the start of a process rather than the end.” The Premier League continues to grow in wealth with a new three-year £5.5billion global television rights deal coming into effect from the start of the 2013-14 season. Calculations revealed by the FSF show that the increased revenue would be enough to cut the price of every ticket at every game by £51.30. The Premier League has previously said it encourages “stretch pricing”, where a range of prices are offered to ensure those with lower budgets are catered for. A statement read: “The Premier League today met with a group of supporters who took part in the demonstration outside our offices. It was a positive meeting in which we listened to the group and answered their questions. “In the meeting we explained that keeping attendances high is our top priority and that encouraging the attendance of locally-based supporters and incentivising away attendance are key parts of that. “While it is for individual clubs to set their ticket prices, we agreed with the group that we would further encourage stretch pricing at our clubs in order to make Premier League football available to a wide range of supporters. We recognise the commitment of attending fans and look forward to further discussing the matters raised with the Football Supporters’ Federation.” A group of fans believe they have made positive progress in their campaign for lower Premier League ticket prices following a protest in London.center_img Supporters from across the country gathered to demonstrate outside Premier League headquarters on Wednesday afternoon while a delegation met with the competition’s chief executive Richard Scudamore inside. Disgruntlement over the rising cost of attending matches, particularly away matches, has grown in recent years and notably commanded attention after Manchester City’s visit to Arsenal in January. City returned around one third of the 3,000 tickets they were allocated for the game after fans baulked at the £62 price. last_img read more

Alex Neil shows support for former team-mate Garry Monk

Posted on

first_img Saturday’s result ended Neil’s own winless run of six, and the Scot – like Monk, considered a highly promising manager – praised his former Barnsley team-mate’s credentials and was adamant in his belief that Swansea are already employing the right man. “Yeah (they’d be stupid to panic with Monk),” he said. “If you look at them last year, they got the highest-ever points tally they’ve had. What changes from the end of that season for 12 games into this season? “It’s the same manager, he’s probably not doing too much different, you just go through wee lulls and spells where it becomes tough, maybe people are out of form or you pick up a couple of injuries, there’s a host of things. “Maybe he needs to freshen it up a little bit, but Garry will be best placed to know exactly what he needs to do next. For me, if you got rid of Garry Monk or even thought about it it’s a sad day in football. “We’re only 12 games into the season. I know a couple (of managers are) already gone but it just shows you what football’s like.” Monk remained convinced that his team, who dominated possession without doing anything of note, did not deserve defeat. His squad remains among the Premier League’s more talented but he accepts that they are low in confidence and that should their results not swiftly improve they will soon be battling relegation. Swansea appeared bereft of ideas and confidence both before and after Jonny Howson’s second half headed goal extended his worst run as a manager. There has so far been little suggestion that the 36-year-old is under significant pressure but Swansea sacked his predecessor Michael Laudrup less than a year after he inspired them to the 2013 League Cup, and Premier League management has become an increasingly unstable profession. Press Association “When you are in a period such as this your confidence is not going to be at its highest but you have to give them the trust that you believe in them,” he said. “I understand that football is a tough business and a cruel business. It is very cut-throat and you are working to very thin margins. “Of course you are always wary of (joining the relegation battle) and bear it in mind. We are not quite there yet but in the next few days we have got to put our marker down otherwise the situation will be the situation. I don’t think of it like that, I look at it as a challenge.” Alex Neil has come out in support of former team-mate Garry Monk after Norwich’s 1-0 defeat of Swansea left the manager with only a solitary win in nine games. last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 13, 2016)–In a massive upset, 71-1 longshot Generosidade flew late to take Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Luis Rey Stakes under Tiago Pereira by 1 ½ lengths while covering a mile and one half on a turf course listed as “good” in 2:28.80. Trained by Paulo Lobo, Uruguayan-bred Generosidade made her third stateside start today.“I was so excited because this is my (second) graded win in North America,” said an ebullient Pereira, who like Lobo, is a Brazilian native. “Generosidade was so good today. We sat behind, we let the pace go and the last three eighths, I was able to get outside and get up to win it.“Paulo told me to relax the first part of the race in the other three times I rode her (three) because she liked to do that when she ran in Brazil. But, in the three races she’s run here, they were not so good…Her last work was good and today she was too good for them.”The longest shot in a field of 10 older horses that included four females, Generosidade paid $144.80, $45.60 and $17.60.Owned by her breeder, Haras Phillipson, Inc., Generosidade got her fifth win from 16 lifetime starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased her earnings to $206,894.“She’s a marathon horse,” said Lobo. “She loves the distance and we were looking for a mile and a half. She had her (recent) race (finishing sixth in the 1 ½ miles turf Astra Stakes here on Jan. 17). I think the rain helped me because she’s seven years old. She has issues, little problems, and the softer ground helped her.Trained by Ron McAnally and ridden by Tyler Baze, Chilean-bred Quick Casablanca rallied boldly from far back to be second, finishing a neck in front of Brazilian-bred Energia Fribby. Off at 10-1, Quick Casablanca paid $11.00 and $5.60.“I tried to thread the needle (at the top of the lane) and a horse stopped in front of me,” said Baze. “The horse is on the top of his game right now. He’s doing awesome. I can’t wait for the next one.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Energia Fribby, a 6-year-old mare, rallied wide-out and finished third, a neck in front of Highball. Off at 30-1, Energia Fribby paid $12.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.18, 47.61, 1:12.29, 1:38.20 and 2:03.83.There is a massive two-day Pick Six carryover into Thursday at Santa Anita of $548,670.
