Hatton Hacked Off

Hatton Hacked Off

Life-long Blue and boxing superstar, Ricky Hatton is reportedly hacked off and is refusing to renew his executive box at the City of Manchester City Stadium.

According to one of the most anti-City UK tabloids out there (Daily Mirror), the Hit-Man is refusing to pay a whopping £39,000, plus VAT for the coming campaign. By all accounts he only paid £22,000 last season.

Quote from the tabloid...

Hatton, along with his uncle - property developer Ged Nightingale - and eight other relatives and close pals, have had their own box at City's old Maine Road ground and latterly Eastlands for 10 years.

Nightingale said...

'Ricky is very upset about this, especially when you think of everything he does off his own back to promote and raise the profile of the club.'

'We expected to pay a bit more for the box this season - maybe another £5,000 or so - because they have added a few more creature comforts. But can they justify an extra £17,000 for heated seats, a plasma TV and a new carpet? I don't think so.'


Heated seats eh?

We working class folk have the luxury of swapping the seat with a family member to have a heated seat - (think outside the box please).

I sometimes wonder if the so-called superstars live in the same world as you and I.

The irony is the rich are asked to pay more, rather than the average man. Which is refreshing change. City have upgraded the posh boxes so a pay rise was evitable. Pay up or dont. No big deal. Why is a multi miliionaire city fan going to the press with this?!?

Publicity I suppose Super City Slicker. It keeps him in the limelight even when the pounds are beginning to show around a certain waist-band.

I think 17grand is quite an increase compared to what the original amount was.

£38,000 for a box that holds 10 = £3,800 each not an excessive amount that could be classed as tax deductable..... is Ricky playing hardball with the club and after a discount?..... fair play to him if he is, but will the club do the same for the rest of the season ticket holders? probably not....

Wether Your rich or Poor it doesn't matter , The Point is he is expected to pay an 80% increase , If your season ticket is 500 quid and you had won nothing last season , Would you like Owners telling you your season ticket will be 800-900 next season ??? , Its just the same , These millionaire aint millionaire for nothing , They dont get ripped off and are good with money lol

Any Blue should avoid any contact whatsoever with the Daily Ragger.

think ricky should stop moaning, he can afford it and like someone has alrwady put up, 3,800 each is not that bad, Its makes a change though, instead of the normal everyday joe getting slapped up prices, why not ask the richer supporters to pay a little extra? They are getting much better and more comfortable seating etc etc
