'If It's Football, It's Vital'

It Doesn't Make Sense To Acknowledge Fans

That is pretty much the word coming out of Gresty Road despite countless calls from fans for the club to reduce ticket prices this weekend.

Fans and fans group Crewe ASI have been in touch with the club pleading for them to reduce ticket prices to get more fans in for Saturday's crunch match against Oldham, arguably the biggest in a decade for the club.

Despite even Steve Holland calling for more fans to get down Gresty Road on Saturday, the club are still refusing to lower ticket prices from the usual 19 for adults.

Speaking to SuperAlex.co.uk, Crewe Alexandra spokesman Rob Wilson said: "We just hope fans appreciate how big a game it is and come to support us anyway. Financially (reductions) it doesn`t make sense."

Whilst it undoubtedly doesn't make too much financial sense to lower ticket prices, what about appreciating the fans who have endured a horrendous season that could have been avoided by the club who are yet to even acknowledge those that keep money rolling in every week.

The club will probably just about get over 5,000 in (with the help of a large Oldham following), the effects of a 'packed out' ground cannot be under estimated. If those extra fans in the ground can help inspire the team onto safety, will it not be worth the minor loss suffered by a simple price reduction?

A loss that will be forgotten about when Nicky Maynard moves on in the summer for more than you can win on this Wednesday's lottery.
