For the second season in succession, Tottenham have tried to recoup some of their poorly spent transfer kitty by ripping off both Arsenal & Tottenham fans.

In the Carling cup, 45% of the gate receipts goes to the away side, and as with last year the tight-wads from the Lane insisted that the semi-final tickets be priced as high as possible, despite Arsenal Football Club wanting to continue with their usual League Cup ticket price cut.

Tottenham’s director Paul Barber was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: ‘A cup semi-final against our biggest rivals is just about the biggest game anyone could see at White Hart Lane. Our policy is to take the Carling Cup very seriously. We put out our first team.’

It’s all very well to dictate the prices at your own ground, but forcing another team to raise their ticket prices so greedy Spurs fat cats can pocket a few more pennies just seems plain wrong.
