    I can just about remember them... I started going at age 5 in 1978. Used to sit on the wall in front of the terracing in the main (Waterloo Road) stand which was a couple of inches higher than pitch level. Good times :-). Then got a season ticket when the new "John Ireland stand" was built about 5 miles away from the pitch....
    You just missed a match in May76 when 30,000 away fans were crammed in on your huge South Bank. An amazing evening match, I can still remember listening to BBC radio, commentary probably from the brilliant Peter Jones. Even Wolves fans talk about the scenes.

    I’ve always liked Wolves and disliked WBA, I don’t know why. I remember your 1980 League Cup Final win over Forest, the brilliant Steve Bull as you marched up the divisions, and on Brighton’s amazing win at Molineux Easter 17 ... 99% of your fans were great.

      Hmmm I can remember before the Manure home game a Swiss family, (not Robinson), being told by the ticket office just before the game, that the only availibility was for four lounge access seats, l think they were over #100 each though, not very good either, at the far southern end of the West Stand middle tier adjacent to the corner flag.

      They seemed very happy to take them though.

      I've just put mine on the Season Ticket Exchange so there should be one for the East Upper going on soon.

      It's one area that the club have got really wrong, ticket pricing for normal Premier League games for younger kids/fans.

      For starters the Under 18 price point (I paid £18 for my 8-y-o daughter for West Ham) is just wrong for say a 6-10 year-old, there should be another one at 11 or 12. They only have to look at what other clubs do. Cat A is £25-£32 for an Under-18, is that for real for a six-year-old? Cat B is £18-26, and Cat C £15-20. All way too high for those Under-10 kids.

      And I didn't know about the seats all being resold at adult prices via the exchange. It's bad enough the above farce, let alone charging them adult prices. That is shocking. Really greedy, and very easy to fix.
      Yes. Its more expensive to see the Albion on a match by match basis, especially for u18s and especially for Cat A matches and prohibitive if you wait for the ticket exchange to kick in. (although last season and this - tickets often went to general sale).

      However season ticket prices for u10s (and u18s) are not shocking , or greedy or exceptional. They were £80 - £185 this season depending on where you sit. Roughly £5-10 per match.

      Agreed. Leicester (Cat B) is still on general sale with availability - prices (E1H so not the highest) are Adult £41.00, 65+ £31.00, Under 21 £31.00, Under 18 £21.00. There is an exchange seat currently available in the North Stand for £30 for Wolves (C Cat)

      Yep, too young to remember the '76 game vs Liverpool
      A lot of our newer fans don't even realise that the North Bank used to be the "Home" end despite being smaller than the South Bank. The South bank was normally split between sides with a gap in the middle. Remember sitting on the wall by the side of the pitch when a load of Blues supporters invaded the pitch , running from the South bank towards the North. Only time I can remember being scared actually inside the stadium...
      Rumours are that the South Bank is going to be rebuilt/extended at the end of the season. Looks like it could be about 10000, even more if they actually allowed safe standing back...

      Wolves vs Brighton....... I think we could win 36 matches in a 38 games season, but still lose twice to you. Strange how some teams are bogey sides.At least we have managed the odd draw or two more recently.
      17th will do.....

      Quick ticketing question, does the club need notifying of a senior citizen using a full price adult ticket?
      What?
