In what is yet another example of what NOT to wish for with levelling up it seems the London based Arsenal Football club has the most expensive lager sold in its stadium in the Premier league at £7.60 a pint.

Here is the list of prices charged leaving me with not much more to add except to say to Liverpool fans and all the other teams fans who are not in London, if you want levelling up be careful what you wish for. Arsenal charge £7.60 a pint, whilst Liverpool are giving it away at £3.30 a pint.

So if you want to pay £7.60 for a pint of lager keep asking for levelling up, or on the other hand I’d keep quite and enjoy the benefits of ridiculously cheap lager.

As an aside and an example, I went to a Forties Weekend at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire and I purchased two pairs of forties style trousers for £45.00 each which down south would have cost about £100 to £120, I think we in the South should be voting for levelling down!

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.

  1. This caused me to look at players wages and I chose Port Vale as a team in the lowest division. They range from £2,400 a week to £140 a week.
    Manchester United range from £515, 385 a week to £3,462.

    What price a pie and a pint? Pity the young lads at Port Vale!

      Good one, Peter. Shocking isn’t it? The way some clubs take advantage of the fans in order to pay the expensive wage bill of the their overpaid players. More fool the fans for paying the price, everyone has a choice.

  2. Good job I watch football on the television.
