Their brackets were different to ours - I think all members could buy today. Interestingly their "Phase 2" is General Sale, which starts on Sunday

Still, impressive numbers for two tinpot clubs


I am loving this "tinpot" stuff. It really used to annoy me and make me want to defend or argue.

Now I'm happy to say, "yep we're tinpot. :roll: and what is your point?"

Pot luck on blocks but if I were you I'd buy and know I had tickets unless they are only offering completely unacceptable options.


Not sure I entered details correctly then! Only put in two sets of details (each member card).

Anyway got 522 x 3 row 22.

My first game of the season :oops:

We already have 8000 more than them. They sold 20000 in total.


Thats shocking you should never take going to Wembley for granted you never know when you will get to go there. Maybe it's becouse they win there? We go more in hope than expectation.

Welcome to the cheap seats!

Me and the eldest in 522 row 35. Was finding it hard to justify the cost of the trip down from North Wales and the cost of tickets, which would £200+ for the day when times are hard at home.

Took the compromise route and will bring some binoculars as I know that despite being at the Bolton, Walsall, and Swansea games as well Burnley, Wolves both legs, if I don't show up I know how I will regret for ever more if the miracle happens and I am not there! Got to be done!

It's only money.
I'm paying for our day out by halving the wife's clothing allowance for a year and cancelling the kid's comics. Sacrifices have to be made sometimes.

That £50 allowance was way too generous anyway.

From my experience last night, it was more straightforward than I thought, made me think I’d done something wrong! There can’t be many seats left as there did seem to be limited availability when buying 3 tickets, only cat 4 blocks available were 522 and 523 (Cat 5 had 521 I think), and if I’ve understood the map correctly the 523 ones may have been at the very back. I could have got them earlier which may have made a difference…but this was the first time I’d got more than 2 tickets which may have been a factor.
Wish I’d been able to get them in the morning though as from what’s been said on here I could have got 1 of the blocks I was considering with no trouble at all. Could have got worse seats though…because actually I think 522 cat 4 may be the back tier in which case I may have done well to get them as close to the front as I did.
The process seems to be a lot quicker than for Swansea, think they split them up more then as couldn’t get them until Saturday and didn’t actually buy them until Sunday morning.

Think we may have sold quite a few more than the 28,000 odd from c5:30 yesterday. Just tried to get one seat on a member card and only the following was available: 524 Cat 2 & 3; 523 Cat 3 & 4; and 522 Cat 4. All Cat 5 sold out.

Slowing down, but they are still selling. Remember a block like 523 has over 1000 seats in it, when you looked on Friday night this might have been almost empty whereas now it's more than half full. If you go through the motions pretending to by a ticket you can see exactly what row they are currently up to.

Block 522 probably has about 200 tickets left, 523 probably 500 tickets, block 524 has about 700. Blocks 525,526 haven't opened yet, they contain combined approx. 2100 tickets. So by my reckoning we are getting very close to having sold 35,000

btw There are CAT 2's available, at the front of top tier blocks (e.g. currently row 6 in block 524) - more of these cat 2's will be released if/when they open up another block, i.e. first 525, later 526. Get in at the right time and you should then be able to get row 1's, not a bad view I would guess from for example 525, which is just one section away from the half way line.
