Why should it? Tickets have always been sold on previous seasons attendance and there's already been a Chelsea sale so they can't change it now.

Of course they can but they won’t

The reason why they should is you should reward those who have gone this season and not give someone their first game of the season

All a moot point anyway- will stay 4 from last season

Because it makes absolute perfect sense, that's why.

Because people want everything so it suits their situation.

I have 12 from last season and 12 this season

So hows that working for your little theory?

Doesnt affect me at all, but clearly if youve been to 10 games this season then you deserve to be at the Chelsea game more than someone who went to 4 last season

It hardly a fucking ridiculous notion is it

Congratulations to you. I'll write to the club and ask them to get you a super fan plaque unveiled in your honour.
Sales have been based on prior season attendance for years. It shouldn't change because someone gets their panties in a twist all of a sudden because we're doing well.

Pretty sure that was more down to the peculiar circumstances of two games over two days than anything else. Ideally they drop the prices so anyone wanting to go can go and be awarded the credit accordingly.

But it wouldn't be like the ticket is going to someone with no purchase history.  There have been much discussed problems with the bulk and late availability sales this season so I don't see why you would want to exclude fans who have a history of going but have just struggled this season.

As you say though, I'd be very surprised if anything changed.

Reward those who've been lucky enough in the bulk sales you mean?

It's an absolute mess and to change the criteria now would stink.

Plenty of "spares" will be knocking about for a few thousand I'm sure.

When people with 4 plus renewed their membership last season, it was with the understanding that they'd have a chance at getting tickets for all the cat A games this season.  Don't think the club could legally change the terms mid way through a season even if they wanted to.

And aside from that, I don't think that people on 10 games this season are 'better fans' or 'more deserving'.  They just got luckier in the bulks than the rest of us.

Pretty sure the club reserves the right to change selling criteria whenever they want, it will be in the small print somewhere. When you buy the membership it never mentions anywhere in the terms about selling criteria, they just sell them on the basis that this gets you access to games, it's up to you to look up the individual criteria for each game.

Disagree with the second bit as well. I'm on 12 this season (as I was last season btw, so no agenda here), but only 2 of those were from the bulk sales. So I haven't got lucky in the bulks, I have slogged my guts off, giving up my life to get those other 10 tickets, so I'd say I'd be more deserving than someone who did 'get lucky' and got 4 in the bulks.

They should change it, imo, and cat A games in the first half of the season should be 4+ from last season, cat A games in the second half should be 4+ from this season.

And again, I re-iterate, I have zero agenda here as some have suggested, I'm on the same number this season as last so makes no odds to me.

Whether it's legal or not, it's a dick move changing it.  I've paid money for a membership with a certain understanding, the club can piss off if they want to move the goalposts half way through the season.

On the second part, I think you'd be the exception rather than the rule there.  Most people on 10 this season will be those that got lucky in the bulks.

Aside from that, there's plenty of people slogging their guts out the same as you and not getting as many tickets as you've managed. 

Loyalty is already baked into the process.  Those on 13+ last season were already guaranteed and have got their tickets.

That Chelsea game is confirmed as when we'll lift the trophy now as well, even if we win the league in March!

I just think a game like that is an exception that should protect those that have gone to majority of games during the same season, that's all.

There is no win-win here and I get both sides of the coin.

Last season I managed 7 on my card and 3 on my brothers... and with only getting the 2 in the bulks (Sheff U and Villa) I still have managed 13 on mine and 12 on my brothers (has access to local sales) so far... I'd be absolutely gutted to miss Chelsea buts its a big possibility and even more so with my brother as he doesn't have the plus 4. Personally my view is the plus 4 should stand from last season but also similar to how they did the Everton FA Cup £9 tickets you also need to show you have been to at least a single game this season as that's not difficult to achieve.

That being said, memberships are sold with the loyalty tiers a well known fact. So if i did miss out, as gutting as it will be, atleast i know my efforst will be rewarded next season and so on.

Whatever the club does, lots of people who have worked hard for their tickets and feel like they 'deserve' to be at the game will miss out. That's an unfortunate fact of life, and changing the requirements mid way through a season is not going to change that.

What's more annoying is that people who don't work hard for their tickets and just have a lot of money will be getting into the ground, either through touts or hospitality. It's a shame that things like Fan ID didn't come in before this season, but there we are.

Villa was only a no credit game because of the qatar situation. The squad situation played no role.

Thanks mate.

Yeah I knew a load had already been sold but I thought it was only up until the Villa game, I've not seen any for Burnley or Chelsea.

Like you say - hey ho!

Hoping the West Ham Monday night game produces more opportunities.
