West Brom manager backs 10£ tickets for all Premier League away fans

“I’d love away supporters to only pay 10 pounds a ticket: whatever ground you go to. You can give 5,000-6,000 tickets to the away support, they’d sell them and we’d get back to the atmospheres we used to have,” Pulis told the BBC.

“Clubs are getting enough money to subsidise and help the public. We’ve got to make sure we’re not milking, milking and milking. We’ve got to give something back.”

West Brom, who are 14th in the table, travel to Goodison Park to face eighth-placed Everton in the league on Saturday.
