    I bet most of these tickets are the season ticket holders "guest" ticket that they were able to buy
    I bet most of them don't even exist since they've been on there since long before tickets went on sale...

      Everton fans have been petitioning the club to stop their relationship with StubHub, which Everton allow as a resale platform: http://www.espnfc.us/everton/story/3...ng-partnership

      If the Albion don't have a formal relationship with StubHub, then it is an illegal exchange of tickets and you'd think our club would act to stop it.
      But how can the club stop it? I cannot see how Albion could have a relationship with Stubhub when they have their own ticket exchange

      Welcome to the Premier League.

      There' s a little bit of naivety here. This secondary selling goes on at every Premier League club and through numerous websites. I would be absolutely amazed if the club did not know about this kind of thing already (especially given Barber's background) and in reality there is little they can do about it short of asking for everyone's ID at the turnstile.

      This is a wider issue about scalping. If clubs like Man Utd and Arsenal can't stop it, I'm not sure how we can......

      And yet rather than stopping it, they choose to issue dire warnings to ALL season ticket holders, the vast majority of whom are not guilty of anything. If the club are correct and this is an illegal activity then they should be taking legal action against the website.

      They can buy the ticket and track the transaction through the ticket details.

      Honestly anybody doing this is asking for trouble when the club have a 7k strong waiting list, and rising.
      Would be easy enough for the club to do this, then recoup the money from a combination of cancelling the ST contract (if the ticket were traced back to a STH) and then re-selling that ST to somebody on the waiting list, together with making a mighty public fanfare out of it. These are the wise-guys the club should be going after, not those STH lending their ticket to a trusted friend or family member on such occasions when they can't make it to a game.

      I'd pay 1.000 to watch the 1966 final, and they can keep the time machine afterwards.
      1966 is pretty much peak Diana Rigg as well.

      Buy up tickets for this game, identify the original purchasers, ban them for life and publicise that fact. If anyone else did the same after that they'd be stupid.

      Harsh? Maybe. So perhaps a "next strike and you're out" warning. If the club demonstrated they took this seriously, fans would soon cotton up and not want to risk their own ability to attend games.

      There was one site (that I pointed out to the club before tickets went on sale) that clearly sells tickets they don't have, presumably in the hope of obtaining the tickets once they have a buyer.

      StubHub is different though, and I'd be surprised if these weren't tickets in the hands of (supposed) fans.

      Diana Rigg's uncle, one Arthur Rigg by name, used to be my English teacher. He took our class of spotty 14 year old boys to see a matinee of his niece playing Lady Macbeth at the Old Vic once. It was fantastic. Not least because she got her kit off. Shakespeare doesn't get much better than THAT
