On scale 7.5, I believe the team and its management is doing well in making the fans happy. I am satisfied with the ways in which the team handles fans; security provision, surety of tickets, offering transport alternatives when travelling through rail proves undependable to the fans.

P: Success on the pitch leaves me devalue the money I spend on match days. If the club puts the best performances on most games, then I do not see a reason to complain over the money I spend. The experiences I get during match days give me the passion to always support the team.
