    Virgin Media will now have to abandon their strapline 'the only place you can watch all PL games in one package' - unless they can find a way to piggyback on Amazon Prime.

    It is getting more difficult to follow football legally.

    To many different broadcasters, dont see how it is making it more affordable for the public.

    Wish i could just pay tottenham direct to watch all matches live. I would still go to 7 or 8 games a season.

    Me too. You’d imagine that time will come - it’s taking longer than I thought it would though.

    For those of you with suitable televisions, the BBC coverage of World Cup is available in 4K with HLG... must say it looked very impressive last night :cool:

    Be careful what you wish for! It'll probably be £14.99 per game.

    At that price I’d happily pay for all of our games up front, that would be a bargain.

    That would be more than twice the price of it now, at least here, and already that's twice as much as I'm willing to pay !

    Cheaper than a ticket and a better atmosphere with no travel.

    I feel really sorry for the modern generation the entertainment like live football and true music legends was easily affordable to me as a young man now most have to watch on tv or on line, the real buzz is being there, even going to the cinema has been drained of all the magic as modern venues are no more than warehouses selling drinks and snacks.

    I’m probably nearly as old as you mate, certainly closer to that than the “modern generation”.

    I still go to other “live” events, but football matches tend to attract football fans, who are mostly clams, I don’t want to expose my kids to tinkled up tribal nonsense.

    Televised games attract a similar audience in my house

    I do watch the occasional game on the TV, but there is no better place to be for atmosphere then actually being there. ( imo).

    I just had that thought as I was going through my "rubbish" in the loft and found my 2s 6d ticket for the Benfica semi final and 2s ticket to see Rolling Stones at Marquee, about 5% of my weekly wages.

    I agree to a point, but sometimes it doesn't seem worth the travelling and poor atmosphere (I'm talking home games, not away).
    I've even turned down tickets to NLDs, as my local puts on a pre-match breakfast and it's roughly 50/50 Spurs and Arsenal. The banter and atmosphere pre- and during the match are brilliant. After the game depends! Obviously this only works because everyone are mates.

    I agree the home games are not always the best for atmosphere at times ( to many happy clappers and part time fans), the away games are brilliant though and always have been. Not one for watching games in pubs (if i can avoid it) i am not a big drinker anymore and there are always a few arseholes who can not hold their drink ( and even worse never shut up about how they could do better).

    I guess its a sign of the times that some folks would rather watch the TV then actually being part of the fun and games of being at a live event.

    I've had more games ruined by whingers than happy clappers (I can't remember a game being ruined by a happy clappers but I have turned down the chance to go to games with Steff).
