Anyone know any good places for parking for this?
Wiggenhall industrial estate is where we parked last season, that was a night game though, so don`t know if it will be available on a Saturday. Worth a try though. About a 10 minute walk to our end.
Thanks, will have a look.

I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

I parked at the Church car park in the town centre and was just 15 mins walk at the most. Bit of a pain to get out of but Emre had just scored the goal of the season so I didn't mind lol

Anywhere decent for a drink before the game with it being an early kick off?

Yeah no bars open in away end. No advance warning and some dangerous crush points inside by turnstiles as people try to get up and down the narrow corridor looking for the non-existent bar. Trust the same rules apply to the home end.

The touts that sold them had 18 credits though. The club loves to reward its most loyal touts.

I did all 19 & still couldn't pick a spare up, frustrating when you see some of the bells there.

It's the fact they do nothing about touts, or won't even try, that gets many.

It doesn't sound difficult. 25% of tickets have to be collected by the buyer on matchday. If you don't show / someone else turns up, insant ban. Same as Man Utd do. That'd flush them all out very quickly.

Or something along those lines anyway

Pissed me off now end yesterday the number of people who had their phones out recording firmino as he took his penalty. Lad next to me didn't even celebrate as he was to busy recording everyone else.  Wasn't impressed when I told to put his fucking phone away and support the team.

Send the seat details into the club and see if they pick it up.  They should ban the seller.

Guy next to me had uploaded it to Twitter or Facebook or somesuch barely before Watford had kicked off again.

Thanks for this, parked easily enough and didn't take too long to get out.

I've seen people pay that amount for a cup final but Watford first game of the season. He should be banned for stupidity as well as the tout.

With the home fans for this one, looked like there were plenty of tourists in the mix yet again, absolutely sickening.   Sadly United are streets ahead of us when it comes to ticketing home and away.

That depends on how you look at it. Don't they do them all by random ballot whereas at least LFC rewards loyalty - it just needs tightening IMO

No they work on loyalty too. Points based system across all comps. You have to apply if you have enough points and if over subscribed then they ballot

Certainly couple years ago anyway when I worked with a manc STH
