    Absolutely!!.

    btw: Anderlecht did the same with Bayern Fans in the (meaningless) last match in the CL Group Stage. They wanted 100 Euro from Bayern Fans (Bayern subsidised them so they had to pay "only" 70 Euro).

    The Fans protested in the stadium against Anderlecht's "price policy for away fans"

    (Kriegt ihr den Hals nicht voll?.....Is your Gr€€d now finally satisfied?)

    and the UEFA investigated against Bayern and fined the club with 20.000 Euro.

    It's a shame to milk away supporters like that (and I don't mean ManU's "revenge" but Sevilla and Anderlecht). They have to cover enough costs to make the trip.

    By going after the other innocent party? Great move that is. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    I thought all us fans we're supposed to stick together in the fight against ticket prices? This was an opportunity to take the higher ground and publicly shame Sevilla without punishing their fans. It's tit for tat childishness as far as I'm concerned.

    Absolutely spot on.

    United are only adding to the problem. What if every club did that? It'd get worse and worse.

    It's not the first time, United get regularly charged more both domestically and in Europe, as do English teams in general. It's absolute bullshit and nobody stood up for us, about time the club did so the next time some foreign club think they can take the absolute piss they will think twice.

    Do you really think Sevilla would give a toss about shame? It's money, a big payday for them and they would have not have cared at all. Their fans will suffer but the club has bought it on themselves. United have been talking to them for weeks regarding this and they have outright refused to lower prices from £133/£89.

    There's more than one way to fight it though.

    Your suggestion does nothing to stop this happening in future, if anything it encourages it because the next club that come along start thinking they can charge anything because the club will subsidise it.

    Sevilla fans have been punished which has put pressure on Sevilla to act. Maybe next time they'll think twice about charging such high ticket prices to begin with.

    United aren't angels themselves, nor any other English club when it comes to ticket prices but in this instance I do think they've shown Sevilla up.

    Peaceful protests such as Bayern don't stop them getting shafted for every away game regardless of how professional the club look because of it.

    There will be a good few United fans who've found flights cheaper than the ticket prices Sevilla wanted to charge which is ludicrous.

    Porto charging our fans £66 and their own fans £22

    Apparently they are just lowering their prices for home fans and charging Liverpool supporters what home tickets usually cost? Not a big deal, is it? Ensuring maximum home field advantage.

    There won't be any additional advantage. Liverpool are still entitled to the same allocation and will still sell it in full regardless of the price.

    UEFA need to address it, if they have to distribute prize money better for the smaller clubs so be it but the fans traveling across the continent shouldn't continually be stung so clubs can make a quick buck.

    Liverpool fans are getting charged more purely because of who they support.
    It's wrong and Porto, like Sevilla, would be quick to complain if the shoe was on the other foot.

    Big boost for Liverpool as Porto have lost Danilo Pereira to injury

    Can see the Juve/Spurs game end in a score draw or narrow Juve win.

    We always turn up for Barca, inspite the poor form we've been.

    That said, was mostly down to our Cech, Terry, Lampard, Drogba spine.

    Today I'll watch Juve vs Spurs.
    And for the first time ever I am keeping my fingers crossed for an italian team. Not because I dislike Spurs but only because of Gigi Buffon.
    If Juve fails it could be the last 2 international matches of this great goalkeeper and I don't want that. So, forza Juve (can't really believe I am doing this but it's for Gigi ;) )

    And I keep hearing the squad ain't big enough. Can't argue with the quality there.
