Hi guys,

I could do with a bit of help/advice. Iíve only just realised that I stupidly bought a concession ticket during the mad rush of getting a ticket.
Does anyone know how strict they are at Wembley regarding this? Iíve read that they cannot be upgraded or downgraded under any circumstance.
What would you guys do? Risk it?

Id be surprised if they even give it a second glance! The kids tickets are marked with a ďcĒ written in pen...

At Villa Park thereís a light system. I know they donít bat an eye lid at Villa Park but Iím worried Wembley might be different.

Aren't the turnstiles largely unmanned at Wembley?

Thereís usually some stewards waiting the other side of the turnstiles who check bags, do body searches etc. Whether they take any notice of what colour light flashes when you pop your ticket in the reader, Iím not sure but would think itís worth risking it.

I know when we played Liverpool in the Semi final their lot were bunking in through the turnstiles two at a time so I doubt youíll have any issue.

I really hope we don't get into a situation where familiarity with London slang terms becomes a requirement to get in.

What if the steward asks for a gorilla and I offer him a pygmy marmoset by mistake? I could end up getting my Super (Super Ted = Head) ice creamed (ice cream licked = kicked) in. It's a potential Henri Lansbury's hair (nightmare).

Mine have finally arrived. Envelope all ripped and were in a plastic bag but all tickets intact and I can relax now. Reckon some Albion fans in the depot gave them a kicking.
ha ha! Youíre lucky they didnít end up as kindling on a camp fire in Wales mate!

Think I've finally found a pocket big enough to take tomorrow's ticket.

You could say your nipper has just gone in on your adult ticket and you had the concession ticket by mistake ! You ain't  got many other options to be honest . I think/hope you get in alright.

Get yourself a mortar board, gown and a big book about physics and pretend to be a mature student.

I went to watch Orient play last weekend and the turnstiles are fully automated with the stewards on the other side focused on directing people and doing pat downs.

Highly doubtful I know but I'll be around Wembley tomorrow without a ticket so if any of the h&v clan stumble across any late spares they would be much appreciated! UTV!
