I was thinking the same as a mate has applied. I assumed you'd be guaranteed but apparently not?

Any one know how the thomas cook travel works? Booked on with them and got my email the other day and I'll get my ticket tomorrow. Does that 100% mean tho that you will have a space on the planes with them because the way I read our official site it says Thomas cook will contact you if your successfull. Surely if you get a ticket in your name your on the flights

If you've booked with them and have a match ticket in your name or as a named person on someone else's card your sound. You won't hear from them until its sold out now and they start allocating the planes and seats.

Just a word of warning anyone thinking of using Thomas Cook need to  book by 5pm today as there closing sales after that.

Nick, how does it work with being a named person on someone else's card mate, do you know? The only section I could see where you could put anything in to that effect was under the special instructions on the TC booking form online. Have I missed something when booking online? I obviously filled in all my details  and put my membership number, but don't know how I could have notified them that I have a shout on a ticket on a mates membership as he can't travel so would pass the ticket to me. Cheers

I posted this the other day Kind of explains what they did last year


Did it last year and on tc website you had to put your details in and the name of the person whos card your trying to buy on. Once match tickets have been sold they then contact the club with the fan card numbers to confirm they got a ticket.
Last year I had 3 mates in the ballot and just used one of there card numbers unfortunately he didn't get a match ticket but one of the others did. When TC phoned me saying that card number hadn't qualified I Told them that another one had and I'd bought with that, they rang the club to see if it had and my details were on it. Within a hour TC emailed me to say all was confirmed and the flight details.
Hope this helps

I'm guessing they will check your membership number and if it hasn't bought a ticket contact you have over it. Just give them the number that has qualified and they will Check with club and process your booking

With TC they are over subscribing based on not all will be successful.
I hope they’ve got their guesses right, otherwise if more get in the ballot they either need another plane (entirely possible they have planned this)or are going to disappoint a few?

After a bit of advice on this if anyone can help.
If you can't move through areas. What areas can you move through to give best chance of mates getting across to each other - for example can you get between blocks but just not the tiers? Is it best heading for those upper tiers then or will they be blocked off from going all the way around?

I just remember going down the steps to have a look and seeing about 500 lads in a queue above top. I loudly was like "nope" and went back. Was one thirsty evening. Couldn't even go for a piss - seen better toilets in Indian villages.  ;D

In comparison however, my main takeaway from PSG was how great their toilets are. Enjoyable almost. Might start a stadium pisser review website.

To be honest you could of took a dump anywhere in the ground and argued you thought it was the bogs !

Yes. what I'd moan about is if they take all day thurs to inform people. Either announce first thing or let people know what time

I remember last year it took all day to sort it out, wouldn’t be surprised if it was same again. Think it was about 6/7pm when we finally heard about our applications (both unsuccessful).

I've been using a random number generator for numbers between 1 and 5 and trying to hit the same number 3 times out of 4 for the number tickets we need.... the results are looking good... but i think i might be slowly losing my mind.

You've lost it mate. 😉

I've got a background in stats and maths. I've been in ballots and my success rate should be better. But none of that matters

Yes.... where there were 4 before there are just 3 now and getting there is a nightmare as we have to push our way through the queues/crowds by the bar. Crazy design all round but yes the roof no longer leaks :)

A Spurs fan apparently has chartered a flight for around £270/person for 200-odd for the day and returning the early hours.

This seems surprisingly low... hopefully my Spurs mate isn’t getting scammed with 200 others... but fair play if the lad is basically making zero profit on this.

They must be flooded with people just trying to get on. There will be thousands of people who dont understand our system who see "buy now" on the ticket page and click

That's the only way this makes any sense
