It was loads harder than last season - surely our allocation hasn't gone down that much?!? Why has it reduced anyway?

Down by nearly 2,000 apparently no idea why, probably due to the 'football family' or some such bollocks.

I've given up now, not a sniff for a long time, but there will be no doubt the odd extra one or two that come up, still trying for a mate's Dad and also Maidstone (who went to enough games) if anybody sees sign of any going back on sale, please PM me if you have any inside info/will share my number, thanks.

Also appreciating there are a many who were entitled today who missed out, I had I think 7 or 8 browsers/devices and so places in the queue and so still missed out before it sold out, yes lower entitlement and higher attendances have bitten.

If we win, do I push for the child to be's middle name to be Victoria?  (i.e. Victory, Verity would also work as my name means truth, but sounds a bit posh. Planned first name begins with A) ;)

took a risk and missed out

one of my sons criteria only kicked in today, me and my youngest lad could have got tickets earlier but couldn't go leaving one out so tried for 3 today and lost out

oh well



So sorry John, that was a really tough but very generous call.

Didn't we get a few more as Fulham couldn't shift theirs? We've also got a few more season ticket holders too as well as a higher average attendance.

Don't be daft.  It should be Tyrone obviously.  Or Dean.

Fulham sold out.

Our average attendance is up 4k, allocation is down 2k.

It's why despite the_ads insisting it would go to booking history I felt all along 3+ is when we'd sell out.

Wondering if anyone is willing to swap places at the ground Iím with my son in block 531 in row 31. I got a ticket for my wife today and block 547 in row 27. Is there anyone who has a single in block 531 and wouldnít mind swapping so we can sit nearer each other? 
Thanks

Yep and when you consider how many crowds we've had north of 36,000, it seemed clear that the 3+ group would have been significantly higher than recent years and no way could 36,000 meet demand.

The site sells around 100 tickets per minute, so there was less than 2k left.

Anyone bought tickets from a reseller last year?
If so, which one?

Sorry for you guys who couldn't get a ticket today, I think I lucked out Saturday and was in the queue less than 15 minutes, two seats together in 532, but why less tickets this year?

Apparently Wembley holds 90,000 and both teams got around 72,500 between us...so that means approx 17,500 to corporate and football family? Iím sure all those Villa and Derby fans that missed out will be delighted seeing blocks of empty seats after half time in the corporate area.
