    Good article – Only point to add is on season tickets; I’ve been a season ticket holder for 24 years and got my Premiership season ticket for a measly £390 for this season. All supporters had from October until May to purchase season tickets at a very low rate, including the rare option of a payment plan splitting payments across the year, something of great help to those with less disposable cash. Only following a competitive review of season ticket prices in the Premier League post promotion were the prices increased, with only a minimal number of fans having to pay the increase (arguably those who found the prospect of top tier football more attractive than second tier). It could be said that this increase is fair for the quality of entertainment on offer. The fans were consulted by the fans and very few grievances were communicated on the forums.
    The fans have certainly not lost out this season – loyalty has been rewarded, something few clubs can boast in todays sad money grabbing times.

    Yeah, that’s kind of why I only mentioned it as an aside, really. It was just a number – well, a percentage – that stood out. Glad to see that the club is being run in the right way, broadly speaking, and I’m sure you’ll all be relieved to know that Palace are off our radar!
