I wasn't expecting to be overcharged. People who didn't want / couldn't be bothered to go now have a better deal than me.

I have paid £33 for a £20 ticket. I have been overcharged and should get my money back.
I am getting a voucher for drinks / food I don't want.

Those drinks are not free!

So you weren't expecting to pay the price you did when you ordered your ticket?

Good things come to those who wait. ;)

The issue is that fans that were put off by the higher price and now being offered a lower price to attend, while those who have already stumped up in full are being fobbed off with a voucher, which is not the cash equivalent of a refund as the chances are that it will not be spent to the exact cash value. The fare on offer by way of catering is average at best and a lot of fans don't even use the facility.

It's not the end of the world by any means, but a refund to bank accounts or, even to the season cards shouldn't have been too much of a stretch for the club.

Now back to this. I expect to pay the same price as any other season ticket holder. If anything I should get a better deal for buying early / reserving my seat.
This hasn't happened and I feel cheated. Not a massive deal but the facts are that I have been overcharged and not refunded correctly.
Out of interest - Did you buy a ticket early and pay the full price?

For all those wanting to put a scratch team out it's really important we win this now and by a few goals just to give everyone a lift ahead of Southampton-Norwich-Watford which is going to be a defining point of the season.

Losing to Liverpool kids will just ramp the pressure up even more, we don't want that obviously.

Smith has to use this game to get some confidence but also to prepare for Saturday which is much more important.
He could rest the key players for fear of injury and to play down itís relevance, or pick his strongest team for a confidence building win.
I think he will play 4 3 3 with Wesley up front for a change.

All my enthusiasm for this game has been drained by our lamentable league form.

Maybe something extraordinary will happen on the night.

We have more to lose than to gain here. Even an 8-0 win will be explained away by the callow nature of the opposition. Let's just get through and forget about it.

I'm actually looking forward to it as respite from the emotional hailstorm that is the league right now.

A semi-final would be something to feel good about too.

I think the atmosphere on Tuesday will be flatter than a glass of week old lemonade.
