Title: Bournemouth
Post by: Ads on June 30, 2022, 11:09:00 AM
On sale Monday to full card mentalists and then 18+ from Thursday.

1318 is the allocation which I think is a bit more than we have had before.

Kick them out of the league or make them share with Southampton until they have a proper ground. No club should be allowed to offer fewer than 3,000 away tickets.

Villa balls it up again.  I went every game last season but may miss out as my Barrow ticket was purchased from someone who shelved out on hospitality.  From a personal point of view seems unfair that I am sharing a ticket window with people who may not even have attended one cup game.

Iím surprised theyíre taking cup games into account for a Premier League fixture. Itís purely down to the low number of tickets at Bournemouth.

There will still tickets for the part timers when it goes to 18 aways on Thursday, as the maximum number of us eligible on Monday will be ~650 given that's what the Barrow allocation was.

I am all for a level playing field and for clubs to aspire and to reach the top level, so whilst I wouldn't kick them out, I agree that they should have done something with the ground, or plan to move, as I think they may be tenants.

They were in the Prem for 5 seasons, but did nothing at all, but I guess there's little incentive when they can just use the TV money on the team and still be ok. Palace is another example of a club who do little to improve the stadium. The fans may generate a reasonable atmosphere, but the stadium is dreadful.

It would be quite cool if Palace had a ground, or at least a stand, based on the design of the original Crystal Palace (which features on their badge). Would be a bit different to all the other bowls.

Palace have plans to rebuild the stand on the side that faces us from the away. Personally I wish they'd get relegated as it's a fucker to get to.

Thatís an Archibald Leitch stand innit?

Also, the glass panes that were used to build the original Crystal Palace Exhibition building were made in Smethwick.

Yeah, they were quite ambitious plans but it seems to have gone quiet.

Bournemouth however is a joke. 5 years in the top flight and did nothing, after doping themselves up the league in the first place. Forget Southampton, they should be made to play at Plymouth as punishment.

And so it begins.

So seemingly all the remaining tickets that went on sale at 5pm were gone before 5.02pm

needed urgently one bournemouth ticket for a friend (myself) who went every game last season but missed out mainly on the basis that I got my Barrow ticket off someone who ended up going hospitality

I'm sorted now :)

My ticket is sorted but still looking for other Bournemouth Lions if any come spare. We are meeting in town  early for breakfast so can meet anyone with a spare.

Like a couple of others. If there is a spare ticket let me know. I also went to all last year except Barrow and missed the 5pm rush as I was in a meeting until 6pm and they were sold by then.
I actually have a coach ticket down there so it can be really late notice or meet at the ground if that helps

There were three available earlier briefly on the website, so keep checking.

I'll jump in the queue if anyone has a spare for a Villa fan living in Bournemouth, long shot but don't ask and all of that!

Thanks

There's a discount on railcards of 33% with SUMMER33 at the moment. Managed to get £60 knocked off the price of the train.

Any Bournemouth locals know the best place to park today?

Or anyone have any idea where our fans will be drinking before the game?
