The Cold End recommends you take a look at the fantastic website 'Two Men in Search of The Beautiful Game'. It follows the travels of Daniel and Tom fans from Arsenal and Tottenham who like many people they have been driven away from the Top Flight game due to the rise in ticket prices.Their website describes as follows with a link below -
"One Spurs fan, Daniel, and one Arsenal fan, Tom, from each side of
the North London football divide, in search of the Beautiful Game. We
hope with the aid of our blog, photos and videos we will be able to
share with you our experiences of different leagues, grounds, fans and
Tom a life long Gooner since the age of 9, after his
Dad took him to a home again against West Ham. Tom admits not
remembering much of the game, but says he will never forget the passion
of the fans and the songs being sung.
Daniel has been a Spurs fan
for nearly 20 years. Not really from a football family, and cursed with
two Chelsea supporting uncles, it was not until a friend at school took
him to his first game in January 1996 against Sheffield Wednesday, and
he was instantly hooked.
Like many fans the both of us have
become disillusioned with the top flights apparent only goal to become
bigger and richer, and by this killing the atmosphere in it's wake. We
are both ex season ticket holders who have been priced out of following
our teams, and are saddened by the apparent loss of that all important
connection between a club and it's supporters.
We hope by
exploring the lower league's we will rediscover that supporter - club
relationship, enjoy the atmosphere and match day together. Hopefully
with out breaking the bank at £60 a ticket!"
