So basically then you could have purchased a ticket for £17, fill in a made up travel plan and not go to the game but get to keep your record going for Holland, Bosnia and any future games.
Yep and I'm sure a fair few have.

Booking history. Just like some do in EPL away games .

Spending  money and building up history is a bunk argument. 270 or so not yet attested is not a huge number and it will get sorted in due course.

It’s the most Villa thing these days. They can’t do anything right away ticket wise. They have 270 odd unallocated tickets by people who purchased with no intention of going and there will now be a few more who will have done a travel plan with no intention of going either.

Maybe 400 empty seats Thursday.
Very very selfish of the entitled few

And also entirely fictional at this moment.

Very surprised to get an E ticket come through. All seems a bit of a mess re communication from the club. Such a shame that we could end up with empty seats. Leave tomorrow for Krakow.

Not huge ? It's like 15% of the away end ?

Maybe some people forgot and have since remedied it after a reminder or maybe they'll sort it out in Warsaw when they realise they can't collect and haven't been emailed.

Got mine through on email. Although as I'm now in Krakow May need to ask politely of the hotel staff to see if they'll print for me otherwise relying on phone version. Assume we'll need passport ID at the ground. Or it's a licence for chaos at future games.

Where were you in Krakow tonight? I bumped into Steve Gough and some of his mates in a bar on the main square.

My mate in Warsaw says they sometimes check ID, but not consistently. It depends on the game and chance of trouble.

WarszaVillan said: “ Unfortunately after living nearly 30 years in Poland, I won't be in Warsaw when Villa come(s?) to town, how fucking depressing is that? Although being in Athens softens the blow somewhat.”

Being back in Poland when the Villa are in Athens for the final would be even more depressing wouldn’t it?

Cheers. Didn't arrive until late evening and an early start for a trip to Auschwitz today so stayed local to our hotel. Hopefully see more of the town tonight.

I know quite a few that have full history but pick and choose their games and sell the spares to mates. I also know quite a few (the same folks) that would gladly pay £18 to keep up their booking history (TBF they didn’t this time, because they assumed they’d have to pick up the tickets over there)… can’t say I blame em, as in all honesty I’d do the same if I could.

Lets play a game.  Who here has had the most local rival fans tell you that this isn't a major trophy?
