Cut price Basel tickets

Despite charging £15 for the first 5,000 people to buy them and £20 for everyone hereafter, Seetickets has somehow got a load of tickets for Thursday night's Europa League extravaganza against Basel and is flogging them for £7 plus £1.60 each. The downside of that is that they are in P1&P2, but hey! £8.60 for Craven Cottage's first experience of proper European competition. It's bound to be electric.

I'll be amazed if the crowd breaks five figures. The fans have a go at Hodgson for not putting his first XI out in Europe, but it's not as if they are treating the competition with any more respect.

I do find the amount of empty seats at football stadia around the country disconcerting. A quick watch of BBC's Football League show (if you ignore the bunker set) tends to highlight more brightly coloured seats than fans. Can clubs not cut the prices and get more fans in? That's what dragged me to Fulham in the first place, after all.
