not been on here in a while realise this thread is about 3 weeks old now but thought would add my story.
had similar problems as many on here, I actually did register to be on the STWL back in 2004 me and my missus, signed up to that PTS scheme around the same time and ticked the box saying add us to the season ticket waiting list. then, in 2005 or 2006, i thougth I would look up our position, and when i emailed asking, they had said sorry you where not put on the waiting list in 2004, it was actually September 2005 when we got round to adding you to the list... so this sort of means the story from the ticket office in another thread is wrong as they confirmed then that I was on the list..
but then saying that... now when we check the look up for us joining in the same envelope, my number is 12,*** my missus is 11,*** about 800 spaces between us. Very Odd and screwed up as always, I just cant wait until the week in July when we are all moaning because we cant get tickets for games like Reading and Southampton.... then closer to the game there are bucket loads of tickets avaliable but at a point when hotels and travel is no so cheap... surely Travel stuff (hotels/planes/trains/buses) are all in one big secret money making scam against football fans
