It's a lot easier now the M6 from J19-16 is 4 lanes.

Shame that everything south of there is such a nightmare.

Itís not that bad, set the cruise control to 54 and relax from 15-13, then floor it again. I can do Wilmslow to VP in about 1hr 15 most trips.

Cheers for that - I don't get to travel that way much these days - jnr is off down that way tomorrow so will feed back
Out of interest what time would you be hitting the road for the Everton game at home or would you be on half a day?
Jnr could be working anywhere in the North West on that Friday and will be hoping for a handy finish/early dart

If it was a Friday, I'd take a half day at work.

Yeah, for some reason the roadworks from Stoke down dont seem anywhere near as bad as what the Cheshire ones were.

Went online at 17.15 to get Everton tickets. Managed to get two tickets together upper Holte K7. Pretty much single tickets in Holte. Bit more choice in other stands but obviously more expensive.

Going to have to move sharpish in future if more than two of us want to go.
Completely forgot about the claret membership release for Everton tickets until the early hours this morning. There were only a few left in the upper Holte and was lucky enough to get 2 relatively close to each other in K3.

I think it feels worse when I come home because I've got all the ones around Cov as well, where there quite often seems to be gridlock when I'm doing it.

But from 16 - 13 they are still converting it and itís all 50mph!

Tbf - it doesnít seem to make loads of difference because it seems to work as traffic management and stop ghost jams. It feels worst when itís not busy and you have to concentrate really hard not to go over 50.

Does anyone know anything about selling back season ticket seats to games they cannot make?

Keep up!

It would be nice if the club pulled it's collective finger out of its arse and sorted out the ticket resale process.  I'm on holiday for the Bournemouth game and would quite like to flog my season ticket on but months after being told an announcement was imminent there's still no way of selling my ticket to someone else.

Well there kind of is.

You can ask the club to download them to a paper ticket saying that you want to Ďpass them oní to a friend or family member as you canít go.

Then someone on here will probably pay you for them as even if they can get a ticket from the club it wonít be as good as yours!


Can you do this via the website or do you need to phone ticket office?

Phone the ticket office, that's what I've always done, only option.

To be fair, it's really, really straightforward and takes about 30 seconds. They just deactivate your card and email you a PDF print-at-home ticket. I'd suggest not mentioning selling it, though.

I did it a few times last season as I was unable to make a few games and generally gave them to one of the Villa fans in the office.

I thought they said there was going to be a ticket reselling scheme so the club would do it on your behalf?

They did and I have been assured by someone with some clout in the ticket office that reselling ssn ticket seats for individual games will be in place for the Bournemouth game. We'll soon see if they are true to their word.

According to the FAQ 1/23rd of the ST value if they sell:
https://www.avfc.co.uk/Tickets/season-tickets/season-tickets-faqs

Quote
Will I be able to sell my seat via a seat resale programme for games I cannot attend?

Supporters have the benefit of being able to sell their seat using the clubs seat resale programme for matches they are unable to attend.

Supporters can list tickets in advance and may receive 1/23rd of the cost of their season ticket back as a BACS payment subject to seat being resold.

More information will be communicated before the new season.

hopefully gets sorted very soon.

1/23rd sounds suspiciously like last season as there were 23 home games

Would make sense, though I presumed it was just them taking their cut?

Another question:

Can anyone let me know what "Enrol your season ticket into the Free Ticket for Season Ticket holders 1920 now!" is ?
Is it "First home cup game free of charge" (https://www.avfc.co.uk/Tickets/season-tickets/benefits), and if so presumably it's only the first home round we are in of the League cup, or failing that a home FA Cup, rather than *your* first home cup game if there are multiples?

Last time I had a ST I stood on a milk crate...

Am I being too cynical if I was to say that you'll get back 1/19 of your season ticket but the tickets will then be sold at matchday prices?
