Has the £62 a ticket Linesman been suspended?
After the comments from Assistant referee John Brooks at the end of the Arsenal v Manchester City match regarding him telling the Manchester City players to go over and thanks their fans because they had paid £62 for a ticket, it has emerged that he has been removed from duty.
He had been due to run the line at Tuesdays night’s FA Cup game replay between West Brom and QPR, but was taken off this appointment sparking suggestions that he was stood down as a punishment.
Brooks had been seen and heard to say to Manchester City players “They have paid 62 quid go over there, go and see them”
These words instantly made him a cult hero among the fans who have been protesting over the past couple of years about high prices for a ticket at a football game in the Premiership.
What on earth are the FA thinking, banning a Linesman who said something that all football supporters have been campaigning for, if anything they just look daft.
And why are the tickets so expensive anyway….because of the astronomical salaries that the players are paid.
Do you think the linesman should have been banned? Some of the Premiership players earn more in one week than most of us do in a year, do you think that is right?
