80 minimum on trains. I paid 11 for a return to London the other day.

Thanks Villa for leaving it so long to get the tickets on sale, you twats.

A day return to Cheltenham is about 15. See if you can split the ticket from there or Gloucester.

Shhh... don't suggest things like this. We don't want a load of lost Brummies wandering around our county's railway stations :)

I booked 40 return trains from New Street when the fixtures came out.

2419 sold from 4800. Sales seem to be slow for all away games so far.

Probably because of the ticket office problems.

That's the sales at close of play on Friday.

Sales do appear slow and if that figure hasn't moved on by the end of today now its at plus 5, then it wont sell out I wouldn't have thought. Reading the same.

I just think the whole system at the moment makes it really difficult to buy tickets. We are away scheme members but as of yet we have no season tickets.

I called as I understand there is a delay but my 2 junior 16yr olds tickets have not arrived yet also and I was unsure if  that was included in the mailing for the tickets gone last week. I have called and they are saying at least 20 minute wait on the phone. I cannot access online via the new ticketing system so all in all they are not making easy for people to buy tickets.

The message says call again friday if season tickets have not arrived. I imagine a fair few might not get there or some issue with renewals etc. Some will not get to check if they are at work so that leaves Sat AM to sort before the game, it is awful organization

Surely our away support hasn't dropped off after just one season down here? Leeds have been down here for years yet sold out 4800 for Bolton away in 15 minutes.

Leeds can probably buy tickets on the phone.

Can you not buy tickets on the phone at moment?

Crikey that's poor. Add that to having no season tickets and it's not surprisng things arent moving at thr moment.

I haven't tried today. Tried to phone them three times last week and gave up.

They could at least reintroduce the feature that tells you what number you are in the queue. That was a useful feature. I'll phone them and tell them to bring it ba... oh.

Managed to finally get 2 tickets for Reading, but only after being on hold for 35 minutes. Mentioned my difficulties and many others in getting tickets online and the fella was totally oblivious to it.

No wonder the away sales are low if the only way you can buy a ticket is a 30 minute plus phone call.

You're the only person to buy tickets since Friday according to Twitter so they're perhaps not as so slow sales wise as advertised.

That said if people are struggling to call and have only just got their season tickets today then it's likely sales would pick up.

The new online seat selector has 7 out of 10 blocks sold out and 11, 560 and 890 left respectively. So 3400 sold. Quite handy that it let's you choose your seat. Pity we can't do that in the away scheme.

I think picking your own away seat is a really good concept. The problem I had was I could only buy my own ticket...i couldn't  assign anymore tickets and I couldn't even get one with my daughter's reference and are accounts are linked together.

*rakes over old coals, for no good reason*
Does the selector allow you to pick the standing section seats?
