If anyone with a 3+ game booking history is looking for a ticket, you might want to keep an eye on the website this afternoon. Over the last half an hour or so, about 5 single tickets have appeared very briefly. I assume they are returns. The downside is you have to be very, very quick as there are clearly a few people watching & waiting in hope of a ticket.

Ive actually had this a few times over the past couple of days, but you seem to have about 5-10 seconds from it appearing to someone adding it to their basket, so often its gone before you can even get in there. You also have to keep refreshing the site until it shows BUY instead of SOLD OUT on the ticket page then go as fast as you can.

Not sure its any good for the nerves in advance of Monday, but thought it might be of interest for anyone with a bit of time, patience & luck!

I doubt doing it manually you'd stand any chance, some spotty script kiddy will have a bot running from his bedroom 24 hours a day to pick these up.

Im not going to lie, Ive spent a lot of time on the site over the past couple of days trying this, but it was ultimately successful (without robo-kid-bot related assistance)!

the criteria is now for anyone with a home booking history. Seeing as I've only missed two home games this season, I'm refreshing like mad and hoping and praying I can get one.

Postman been, still no tickets :(

Will be able to collect on day if not here by Friday but pain in the arse that.

Mine came today.I was looking at the FAQ link on official site (cant find it now). It states if you haven't received your tickets in the post by Saturday phone the ticket office. If I hadn't had mine I would be phoning first thing Saturday as my post doesn't come til after midday. I am not sure what time the ticket office is open until on Saturday.

still looking for my brother.  Is it the stadum plan page you are refreshing and waiting for a segment to be highlighted?  or is there a 'best available' link that I can't find?

I've got 4 games so I would think it's 3 plus.
