Video: 'They've paid 62 quid over there' -- Linesman suggests to Lescott that Man City fans be applauded

Posted by Chris Wright

The extortionate price of Arsenal's tickets came to the fore earlier in the week when Man City sent almost a third of their 3,000 ticket allocation back to North London unsold ahead of today's game at The Emirates, and it looks like linesman John Brooks was well aware of the whole shebang.

After the final whistle, Brooks was audibly caught on camera insisting that, instead of milling around the pitch with the rest of the pampered pros, Joleon Lescott mosey over to the City fans who did pay 62 pounds for a ticket and show them a bit of appreciation for making the expensive trip.

Well played that man!
