Some might need to find a friendly Season Ticket holder not going who is prepared to queue for a ticket for one of their mates! No doubt illegal but heh come on!!

A few days ago there were just 300 tickets left. Now there are several hundred. Am I missing something? Or did they just find some stuck down the back of the couch?

Tickets still on sale so despite our fears we haven't sold out. Assuming we have average results - win some, lose some and draw a few - I reckon only the games at Liverpool, United and Rovers are guaranteed sell-outs. Or is it that it is so difficult for fans to get tickets that those who would normally go away are excluded ?

200 yesterday morning from what i gathered? although i agree you have to have a system in place you start at 5000 loyalty points then down to a 1000 then down to no loyalty points but you still have to be a season ticket holder! then what a free for all for the last ten tickets? i went to 13 games last season and have the tickets but count for nothing! it just seems strange this was not addressed i know of other Clarets in the same situation some off here even! i am not one to complain though just think it could be fairer if you produce your tickets from last season they should count for something!

Agreed. Once the winter sets in ( and if results start to dip a bit ) I'm sure the real fans will start to show through. That includes those who aren't able to get to every game for whatever reason - travel, cost, work etc.. The reality is that under the current system they will never be able to muster sufficient loyalty points to compete with most STHs even though they may be just as loyal with their support. A tricky one to solve !

Just a simple recognition of my tickets from last season would do me ;-)

To be honest, I think the club have got it about right with the scheme, it just hadnt been particularly well implemented initially. I understand your frustration about having tickets from last year, and a mate of mine was at all 61 and will still miss out on some i guess - but this system accounts for an accumulation for fans who show loyalty over a number of years and not just those who have jumped on the bandwagon when things started to get good ( that is not a criticism of you or anyone else - just my opinion that the club are not far wrong with this)

I know your not having a dig Claretdale like i said you do have to have a system but if you went down that route i was a season ticket holder for eight years but family, finance, work commitments meant otherwise i still think your tickets should be worth something they used to be :-(

I think broadly speaking they have this spot on, but I just think certain aspects on the margins could have been made easier. Why do we have to apply for post? Why cant we be allowed to have more than one ticket if all the mates going want to sit together and have the right number of Loyalty Points? Why cant someone with 2500 points and someone with 1500 points who are mates combine the points and sit together? ( I think in practise you can by post but they dont say that). Having said that as someone with less than 2000 LoyaltyPs but a Foundation member I just want to say how helpful the business office staff have been in sorting out my Stoke&Chelsea tickets.

I think one one of the main flaws in this system is that the ticket office staff ( or maybe the club) has not implemented it very well, particularly initially. A clarets number is not always asked for for all tickets, which mean you dont always get points if you buy for mates etc.
