Watching football is expensive

No wonder I never bother going to watch football, have you seen how expensive it is?

A survey has been carried out to tell us just how expensive going to watch football in the UK is. Turns out it's a lot, which isn't really a surprise. I mean why would you complain about paying £20 to see Ross County? Alternatively you could go to a pub and watch it on the TV with 5-6 pints. Or watch it at home for free whilst playing Football Manager and Tweeting abuse to celebrities. 

Prices of the cheapest adult ticket have risen by 11.7% in the last 12 months, which I've read is more than five times the rate of inflation. I have no fucking idea how the real world works, all I know is I get paid far too little to do far too much work (in my real job, this isn't real) and can barely afford to buy new underpants.  

Usually when I go to watch Aberdeen, the only part of the game I enjoy is the pie. I'm not sure what that says about me, I'm a fat bastard? Probably.
