    Final nail in the coffin for “I can’t get away tickets”


    5 Not allowed!
    15 minutes after Liverpool away went on sale to anyone with a Bronze membership (annual cost £22), there are still 233 tickets for the game available from the first allocation (ie before returns are processed in the week before the game).

    If you want to go to away games, you can.

    It’s only if you want to pick the most convenient game for you to attend that you’ll have had to put the hard miles in previously.

      And don't moan when you find you can't see the other end of the pitch, nor the goal.

      But for some of our exiles that is still over an hours travel which is a bit of a ball ache for them.

      Don’t think that’s completely fair.

      Roll up! Roll up! Tickets available for a match 250 miles away that you can’t get back from on the night by public transport. Also at height of holiday season.

      Any other time of year/trains back and this would not have reached non STHs.

      The point is that plenty of people think it's impossible to get away tickets and that it's a "closed shop". It's not.

      Choices. We can't get back by train so we're driving. If people can't be bothered then FFS stop whinging all the time you can't get tickets for other games. It is embarrassing and boring. Those of us in the top tier are there for a reason and there are those that were in lower tiers that have worked themselves up because they've grasp opportunities when they can and will now reap the rewards which could include prestige games closer to home.

      Think this pretty much sums it up tbh.

      A very high percentage of these tickets went in tier one and very early in tier two.

      The fact the remaining ones have fallen through the other tiers to bronze membership shows the current system is fair and fit for purpose. The people in the top tiers are prepared to drive or find another way to get to the game. Therefore these people should be in the front of the queue for the easier to get to away games.

      However I’m sure this will all be forgotten and people will be on here moaning when the Man City away tickets go in the top tier.
