Like Leipziger I most certainly don't like the decision of being deprived of seeing my team play the best team in Europe and all their great players. Mick Hogan on Twitter said that the club will make 2 to 3 times more from this fixture than the equivalent game at KP and that money would be invested in players and facilities. If this is supposed to pacify disgruntled long suffering fans who have stuck with the club through some pretty dark times I'm sorry it does nothing for me as I find the whole scenario unpleasant. If the USA wants to see Premier teams in action why don't they arrange teams to stage friendly/exhibition matches and not take our prime home fixtures from us. Regarding compensation for losing this game we only get 11 top Premier games the others on the season tickets are either pre season friendliest or cup games with low crowds watching second and third choice players and many season ticket holders choose not to attend these games therefore how do you quantify reasonable compensation for the loss of one of the prime fixtures of the whole season the whole thing is a mess.
