Jacko - you're a terrific fan, the epitomy of what makes football great in this country.

But, you're not convincing me that you gambled on missing our first play off match since 1993.

Where did I try??

Managed to get a ticket yesterday. I live south of Bristol so am8 from Kidsgrove drive up to the shop to get me one. That was around 2:30 on Friday - he was told there were around 100 left.

Fairly certain they'll all go easily.

Sadly I can't make the home leg. I'm on crutches and can't drive, I can get a train there but can't get back home.

Can't wait for tomorrow

I'll take that as proof that I was right.

Enjoy the game! UTV

I can’t understand why you’re so concerned about it. It seems everyone in the world knows and there are reportedly hundreds of others whom you would be right about. How about naming some of them instead of implying I am the only one?

I don’t really see the point in wasting thousands on a new system for tickets.

I’d rather see a new player through the door.

The system is fine for 99.9% of fans and we can’t sell out for a play off semi final so is there really a need for it ?

the Exeter game seems to have caused a fuss for 1 or 2 but not the majority.


I would disagree. I would say the systems in place for away tickets are at the very least an inconvienience for the majority of fans. Even if they were to open 11-7 one day a week it would be a massive improvement.

I get my tickets saved too. It's the people you know. Only plebs would put themselves in a position where they have to queue. Vote Labour Live Tory is my motto!

In my case it’s the things you do.

Is it me

Yes

Was 500 left at end of Day 1, 'about a hundred' towards the end of yesterday and a handful at start of today, so a reasonable progression. 

We've sold in excess of 2100 tickets in 48hrs, despite a cost of living crisis, a sub-optimal ticketing system and a second game to come at home against the same opposition less than a week later, to which we will have sold, simultaneously, the best part of 10k tickets. I don't think that's too bad.

We're definitely not tinpot, certainly not for this level. As things stand, we're a larger L2/smaller L1 club with a decent-sized ground in need of some TLC, but we're moving in the right direction. 

Yes, there are lessons to be learned, processes to improve and make more transparent, but let's just enjoy the tie and appreciate how much we've progressed to get to this point.

Why is everyone banging on about a cost of living crisis? Cost of living is lower in Stoke on Trent than almost anywhere in the country. That's not the reason people aren't going. It's geography, the time, and the fact that half these "poor" people you refer to pay hundreds every year on sky sports.

I said yesterday that over the season they took an average of 13 more fans to away games. Wow!

Our fans do travel in numbers and I don't go to many away games so Walsall is the one I usually go but I knew there'd be no chance this season.

I'm looking forward to going to the home game on Thursday. I'd love our crowd to get behind the team all of the match and cheer us to victory.

However it's one game at a time so I'll go for my 2 hour walk tomorrow and keep away from the match. It worked last week!

Had we been given the same allocation as Swindon at Walsall we would have averaged higher over the season.

People like you should be first in line for any tickets, there's no doubt about that and I don't think anyone has an issue with it. The problem is that there are others who go absolutely everywhere who have to queue up for hours and take time off work or camp out overnight when there is a big demand. It's ridiculous. There should be a system in place whereby all supporters who go everywhere can secure tickets as easily as you do.

I have faith the club will sort it out, I'm surprised it's taken them so long to do but I also appreciate they can't change everything overnight. I'm happy to admit I've benefitted from the corruption down there to secure tickets on a number of occasions, but it needs sorting. A fair system for everybody is what's needed.

Come on Port Vale.

Cost of living has risen throughout the country, average salary in Stoke is lower than most other areas in the country.

You can only sit where you like because there are plenty of spare seats with having a stadium 1/3 full most of the time.
You should be told at the turnstiles if you don't have the choice.

They’ve been open 9-7 two days this week.

Man City was a very rare chance to visit a Premier League ground.  It was only 30 miles away, wasn't live on the telly and there was no chance of another game against the same team five days later.  Our previous two games had been at home rather than 200 miles away.  And we didn't have the chance of having to cough up for Wembley should we get there.

I fully understand why folk prioritse their cash at the moment and don't blame them at all.  If you are fortunate enough to be able to afford all this expenditure you shouldn't criticise those who can't.

Ok, let’s use Salford away as an example then.  We can sell out more tickets in the away end there than we’ve been given to sell for a playoff semifinal at Swindon.  It may be a moot point anyway as for all I know the Swindon tickets may well have all gone.
