A few minutes ago there were 708 tickets left, including 220 in blocks 230-237 that would appear to be Club Wembley ones at £125-£150. We got our 3 tickets at £92 for my 2 sons and £47 for me in block 141.

Had a quick scoot around the ticket resellers (vermin scumbags more like), if you want a Citeh ticket you can pick them up from about £75 and there's a plentiful supply, Villa tickets start at about £300 + postage + a service charge that some resellers are charging over £200 per ticket for.

Quite honestly the football family can fuck off.

It's also people emptying their baskets, putting 3 or 4 in and then only being able to buy 1 or 2.

Leeds would have sold out the whole stadium, the Nou Camp and the Colosseum by now. Shit support.

I guess if you were the type of fan to go to 8 homes games out of 13 you'd have probably bought a season ticket, so I guess there aren't that many that qualify.

Let's be honest, though, we've spent the last ten years circling the plug hole in the Premier League, waiting for the inevitable, 3 years in the championship, and a season fighting relegation (thus far).

They've been playing in the Champions League, have been to and actually won bigger finals at Wembley, and have won the league more than once.

I don't buy this OMG! Look at them! Anyone who has got an Elbow album qualifies! narrative (even though I've engaged in it myself a bit).

They've had a decade of shed loads of top level matches and silverware, we've had fuck all.

No wonder they're not that arsed about the Carabou Cup final.

Let's hope, come 1st March, that their team don't give a fuck about the game too.

Isn't a reason not to go though is it?

I reckon if we had been winning trophies non-stop for a decade and were playing against 20/1 underdogs in a major final, I'd be even more keen to go than I am now, burdened by memories of 2015 and the thinking that, if we're honest, we need a bit of a miracle.

I can't understand any Arsenalesque not giving a shit about major cup finals. I wouldn't lose sleep if we ever lost a Charity Shield, but this is hardly the same.
