My next door neighbour is a villa fan (no idea how but all his family are) takes his lad down to VP a few times a season

anyway, his brother has been given 2 tickets for our end. So he wants to get another for his lad. So I’ve explained what he needs to do. Absolute pain in the arse to get a fiver ticket

I don't get that bit, a seats a seat.

I've got my own, but I wouldn't care it it had already been sold

Bit shit for families etc that couldn't get seats together.

 My old man is sat on his tod without his unofficial carer :)

Closest I could get 4 together was other end of stand.

Hope the club realize sooner rather than later how arse backwards this set up is. Especially for games like this.

Why make it hard to buy tickets. Morons 

I know a few more who were talking about going just assuming it was pay on the gate 🥴

And not too sure why people would think that loads of casual fans would rock up on the night but for the membership scheme - going off 17k Bolton fans at home games this season - there are at least 17k who are members

I reckon there’ll be a mad rush tomorrow by folk who want to save a pound per ticket on the online price. Get rid of that ‘booking fee’ and you’ll have people buying by phone or online rather than in person. You’d understand it being a booking fee if it was a pound for the transaction rather than per ticket.

Will always be the last min Larrys who get one game out of the way before sorting the next 

but with 2 big games within 3 days of each other many will be choosing one of them. Based on Saturdays forecasted attendance I’d say Villa has been dropped by the majority

Using Gonzo as an example, you’d think if he phoned up with 1 or 2 membership numbers, they’d sell him 2 further tickets and make wife and son a member at the same time to avoid pissing about next time

Tbf I did exactly that for my mate (been coming for years but never bought under his own steam) and was all sorted ready for future use too

I refuse to believe anyone wanting to buy a ticket will be turned down by the ticket office. They might ask for details that weren't required before, but surely they're not saying "Sorry, the system is too complicated so we can't sell you any additional tickets." Surely?

Just bought our 11.

Asked how many sold so far, they said 14,000 approx.

They are expecting big sales tomorrow.

So 15,000 plus as I said yesterday is going to be non-too-shabby.

It suggests the large majority are not being put-off by membership.

I think the 14k may include Villa, so we have sold 9k.

I realise that. With a few more days of purchase (including a match day tomorrow) we are going to add quite a few more.

So potentially looking more like 17 come Tuesday which isn’t bad 

And if we do end up with this or even a 1/2K below I’m struggling to see why people would be upset with the crowd.

I repeat we only got 17k (didn’t we?? - I’m not 100% sure..) in a league cup semi final!!! 

I really don’t know what crowds we’ve got in big league cup at home in the modern era and what we’ve had pre-membership. But I’d be surprised if it’s more than what we get Tuesday.

In the end what does it matter anyway? Good times are back, we’re playing against a big team again. I can’t wait. 

COYFWM 👏
