not sure mate all i can think is that the demand is higher. don't forget that your 74 tickets were priced at 98 for us - what's all that about?? also because our season average gate was substancially higher than yours i think we are entitled to more tickets (proven fan base) but not sure. 37,500 blades & 36,000 from burnley totals 73,500 (meaning that 16,500 seats are going to corporate and club wembley??? its a discrace!!

Yes it is a disgrace bfl it's a disgrace you got more ticket's than us! it should be down the middle if either team can't sell all their tickets then fair enough but we could have easily sold half of Wembley and them some,i know lot's of people disappointed gutted in fact that they could not get a ticket so stop ranting on and be grateful your going enough said!!

Not sure thats correct blades - All tickets are priced the same throughout the ground. We had tickets at 98 aswell! Also not sure what you mean about the demand being higher - According to Hallam this morning, you still have 1000 left of your initial allocation - we dont have any. Am not having a go at you - It just seems strange thats all! I am sure I also read somewhere that the Gills had been given 38000ish with Shrewsbury getting 21000ish - that seems harsh!

The 98 tickets were for Club Wembley,74 were for category 1 tickets. There are no other tickets priced like that in the ground so it looks like B4L may have got his wires crossed there but who knows,the whole ticket kaboodle is nothing but a shambles

If my memory serves me correctly we took about 36,000 to the play off final in 1994 against Stockport. This is a lot higher stakes therefore we could prob take nearing 40,000 if not more

Certainly could by sounds of it! I just hope all the loyal fans that are not season holders have managed to get tickets ahead of the glory hunters but suspect not!

I think your figures are about right She for the Stockport game - but have to say I am a little surprised we sold out so many so quickly for this game - particularly with the current economic situation. Although I know many are not from Burnley - It is almost half the town population who will be going!

As and when we do get into the Premiership, I wonder what it's going to be like getting Turf tickets for those of us who live 'away' but get on to the Turf as much as we can. For that matter, is it going to be harder to get tickets for Premiership away games than it has been to sample the delights of places such as Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton, Ipswich, etc? Meanwhile I have joined the happy band with a ticket in my wallet. The postman tried to deliver it to the wrong house, and one that is currently empty, but a Brentford fan who lives over the road got chatting to the errant postie and amazingly had a key to the house in which the summons to sign registered mail was sitting. Phew.

Strewth thats lucky CP! Been dreading something like that happening all week, must have invented 100 things that could have gone wrong!! How glad was I to see the postman drive down the lane to our place today and then ring the bell(meaning registered mail to sign for!) Get in!!

Yes, TMP, it felt a bit like the other lot scoring a goal when I wasn't looking but it being ruled offside before I knew anything about it! Anyway, having dodged that bullet, I would just like to say that, while I have imagined as many bad scenarios as you in the last week, the Club and ticket office and lottery office do deserve some credit for having worked their socks off and achieving the sell out so quickly, and for having to handle Wembley's section 123 cock-up as well. Oh to have been a fly on the wall when Wembley told them about that one! Overall, it must have been easily the biggest such project they have had to handle recently, and systems will be very different from the last time we went to Wembley. Clearly not everyone will be happy, and doubtless they'll have a few tough phone calls still to handle, and some lessons will be being learned. But I suspect that they have done most of the job really well, and they will probably all feel in need of a stiff drink when they finish. I wonder how many of them have had to postpone leave, change plans, etc and instead spend a week of phones ringing incessantly, mountains of paper to shift, massive bags of post to haul out and a fair few like you and me giving 'em occasional hell.
