We Got Calde in!!
NSC Licker Extraordinaire
- Apr 30, 2013
Yesterday only SL1/SU1 was opened at 9:00am.
SL1 sold out quickly but no other section was opened up so those who logged on only had SU1 to purchase.
When SU1 fell below 100 seats after lunch SL2/SU2 was opened.
Today SU3/SU4/SL3/SL4 have all been opened up at once....So where is the consistency in that?
I don’t know. But there are multiple possible explanations other than “the club are morons”.
1 Chelsea say that if you touch any of SU3/4, SL3/4 you have to take them all?
2 the Albion, having assessed demand yesterday, have determined that there is no chance of the full allocation not selling and, to allow as much choice as possible to fans, have told Chelsea that we’ll have the lot please?
There seems to be a desire to beat the club with a stick, no matter what they do. The current system is far, far more fan-friendly than any other that the Albion have had since the Amex opened. We can choose the exact seat FFS; we’ve never been able to do that before.
Yes, as a Tier 1 fan, I’d have preferred to have chosen a different block, but it was more convenient for me to buy yesterday than today - if I’d waited I’d have got the block I wanted. That’s my issue, not the club’s.
