An eagle-eyed reader has pointed out a small error in last week's column.
[Just the one? Ed.] When we said that ticket prices would go down to reward fans at
Edgar Street when the Bull******** got into the top three we actually should have said they
would go up to punish them. Pathetically picky we know, and you'd never think it would come to
fruition. But goodness me they have gone and done it. Away fans will also have this exciting
privilege. So come on Woking and Forest Gump! Knock 'em out of third so we don't have to fork
out that extra quid on April 8th, please.
