Fucking scandalous. Despite all the hassle in changing flights and stuff, my trip should be costing no more than 150.

Either these match tickets are 300 or someone is making a fortune!!

Disgraceful!!

With any luck though, no-one in their right mind will pay for this, and so Lonsdale won't get any tickets  ;D

It is a scandal, although flying into Ljubljana is more expensive than the route most people are taking it is still a joke.
Hopefully Lonsdale will not get any tickets!!! Hopefully we will get our tickets soon as nearer to fixture it gets the more worried I get.
Has everyone sent in their ticket applications?
Any word on our allocation?

I think you will find that lots have sent in their application.

I had to get more application forms because I used my last ones up for Celtic last March.

If anyone has old forms just apply on those as that is what the lady sent me. But they must be short at the TO as she only sent me two- for two applications.
