Palace have today announced that the home match with Everton will be a category A fixture. I think this is totally unacceptable - in a time when fans are having to watch terrible football surely the club should at least be reasonable with their pricing. Everton are hardly doing much better! I think this is a very poor decision by the club and shows a lack of respect for fans.

Bigger club than Watford and/or Leicester who have both (ridiculously) been Cat A for the past two seasons.

The notion of the club doing favours for its fan in terms of matchday ticket costs was lost the minute our board justified escalating prices by pointing out that we were/are still cheaper than West Ham. As in, notorious run-by-grot-barons rip-off merchants West Ham.

(I should add, for the sake of balance, that a season ticket still represents exceptional value. No issue in that respect whatsoever.)

I dont think the category is decided on how well the teams are playing..

Yeah, it is decided on the basis of common sense instead. Jeez.

It cannot be based on where Everton are in the league.

Pretty sure they decide the categories at the beginning of the season and they're unlikely to change their minds based on results, performances or league position.

I think every ticket should be half price, because they'll only be one team playing football on the pitch.

The huge financial difference between charging that and say a tenner less must be massive to the club. A club that receives 10's of millions of tv revenue each summer.

Itís because making an inordinately small amount of money matters more to Parish than the fans. See also the Brighton away allocation.
