Since Villa said there will be a waiting list tonight, 1500 people have joined it already. We're back baby.

For years it didn't matter so much if you had a season ticket. It appears that is over now. Does mean prices will keep rising though. Better news, I'll get to look at something better in a few years than the North Stand, with it's stupid upper tier that is bigger than the lower tier and narrower. Aaaaahh!

I made the decision to leave work early today and go to ticket office. I believe I got either the last ticket in the holte end lower or the last ticket in L2. Didnít quite catch which bit the guy said it was the last one. £485 I fell extremely lucky.

I imagine if we stay up next year, the owners will get the rebuilding plans started and possibly fill the stadium corners in. Didn't someone say the maximum capacity could be 50,000 once?

The fan allocations for last years FA Cup final were 28,000 for each club.

We are now into the territory of a season ticket being no guarantee of a Cup Final Ticket, & without one you are almost certainly not going.

for what its worth i went on the stadium tour today with my kids and the Lady said they were doing extensive refurbishment internally to the North stand, and had plans to update the entrance frontage also

she said it didn't look like there were any short term plans to knock it down and start again any time soon because of the money being spent on it at the moment

This'll impact on the membership schemes, I assume. My brother tried to get his kid a ST late on, after being a Cub last year, but he's had to go on the waiting list.

Damn you, Dean Smith, with your entertaining football!

This is how ground expansion starts. People start to realise they need a season ticket, rather than knowing there are 18k+ tickets available each matchday. With only 8k tickets available for our fans next season we should sell out every home game.

Mad to think we only got 27k-28k for some weeknight games in the Prem in the dark days and now we're selling more season tickets than that.

i've been saying for years and fucking years all we needed was a manager with some balls to play football in a structured entertaining way and we would reap the benefits

all this turgid football by stealth to get us over the line nonsense, short term pain long term gain guff under Bruce was an absolute load of bollocks

think i'm the happiest i've been since Brian for a short time and Big Ron a million years ago
maybe even happier because it seems we have the whole top end package this time

I used to feel a bit embarrassed when I lived in the north west and all the Man U/Liverpool fans couldn't get tickets then there would always be empty seats at Villa Park when we were on TV. This is fantastic, even if it limits my chances of getting a ticket. If we can just stay up this year, the future really is bright.

See, told you we'd sold 20k in ze Early Bird Paulie. *nods sagely*

Also caps the capacity at 41ish thousand.
I think capacity will hit 42.5ish K if we sell all corporate availability. (38 home 3 away 1.5 corporate).

What's going on with R1 in the North Stand? Seems to be closed off, have I missed something? Sure that's only a couple of hundred seats though and won't affect the capacity too much.
