This is awful from the club 17:52 - Dec 18 with 24672 viewslondonlisa2001

Today's Guardian publishes details of costs to young people of supporting their club, including ticket prices, replica kits and mascot prices.

To my absolute horror I see that we charge more for youngsters to be a mascot than any other premier league club (well, the same as QPR). This is an utter disgrace. £450 when clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, both Manchester clubs and both Liverpool clubs charge nothing.

Surely with the income we have we don't need to be ripping off local kids (or their parents) like this? What about the Swans mad youngster whose parents can't afford it? How do they feel? Is there any provision for this if parents simply can't, understandably, pay that amount?

I realise that from time to time we probably have kids doing it for a special reason and they don't, presumably, pay (illness related and so on) but this is just terrible in an area where people are hardly rolling in spare cash.

I had no idea that we charged this sort of money - sometimes every player has a mascot and we're charging this for all of them? It's awful. Is this something that is widely known ?

We don't want investment or new money, we don't trust the board, chairman, can't or won't exoand the ground so the money has to come from somewhere.

No at today's prices and in a car that does 45 miles to the gallon, you would do 45 miles for £5.22, so 90 miles would cost £10.44 and 135 miles would cost £15.66 which is further than hammersmith to bath.


Did assume return but apologies a little out of touch, My car only does 12 MPG

Can it come from the £16m profit we posted last year? Added to the £12m we posted the year before? Or indeed the projected record breaking profits we post this year?

And I hope the profits keep racking up. I m too obsessed with us being used to making losses and being a basket case club.

Frankly, mascots seem an irrigation to the players walking out. Few can actually look at them and to me it's rather sickening to see such disdain..

Anyway, g night

Wouldn't you rather we make slightly less profit and have a club for the fans? Otherwise why not ask Tesco to put their beans up to £2.49 a can, we can make sure their profits get higher while we pay for them. Sounds good.

As long as I can remember, a club mascot has always been expensive. When Major Pike was the match day chaperone the kids would meet the players, tour the dressing rooms, and generally have a great time.
But It's where your priorities lay, whether your kids become a mascot, or whether they have an X box instead, of course some parents can afford both.
One things for sure, there are mascots every home game, we are not short of them. So the people that can afford it do so ....simply because they can.
It is expensive for many. And I would like to see a draw each week of all junior tickets, so that all kids have a chance to win a day as a mascot for free.


Jesus Christ what a contrite and pathetic post.

I'm fed up of fans like your and Paul Neath Jack. It's your types that are killingour fans club ethos by blindly agreeing with every shit decision the greedy money grabbers are making.

This is a time for a reality check and a proper shake up. Look to Germany not America.

Im not looking for anybody other than a general manager Skip. You describing yourself as being "thick as sh*t" doesn't fill a potential employer with great confidence either

Spot on. Germany leads the way and we are way way behind. Everybody realises this but the only people holding us back is the fans themselves.
