It is great to have sold out so quickly. Pity we are so fickle for home games. All this money goes in to the pocket of Blackburn Rovers. For our home games in the cup and league this season there have been 78,000 empty seats. When kids prices are taken into account this averages out at about £25 a ticket. This means Villa fans have let the club down to the tune of £2 million in gate receipts. With merchandising and catering added this figure would be nearer £3 million. All in all in empty seats and additional revenue, we have failed the new regime by about £12m since their arrival. But soon as we get a semi final the tickets sell out in hours . . . . . . . . with all the money going to the other club. Unbelievable. I think the term we would use if it was another club would be 'Glory Hunters'.
