Default One out of Nine ain't good!

That's the only time I've managed to get tickets this season - and that was when buying a single ticket because my mate was using a neighbours ST in the MRS!

Smug answers from others saying 'I've got tickets for every game I've tried for' don't help a lot. Answers like "it must be their wifi" or "they're trying to pick their seats together".... just aren't true either.

Last season, we missed out on just a couple of the run-in games. This season though, it's a joke.

Tried Chrome, Firefox & Safari browsers - disabled ALL blockers & extensions. The only method I haven't tried is trying to buy on my phone - that'll be next. If/When that won't have it, that's it....I'll give up trying until the new stand opens.

I'm hard-wired into our router on a solid fibre connection. I click on the numbers of seats in our small group of 2-4 then untick 'only seats together', click on one of the blocks showing available..."There are no. seats that meet your criteria"

I've actually managed to have 3 tickets in my basket the last game, all tickets assigned to the correct names etc...entered payment deets, check-out - BUY TICKETS.......

Error - Your basket has timed out (...after literally 30-40secs???)

I know I'm not the only one - there's loads in the same boat and getting the same thing, but jeeeez!

The more you buy the less chance you have. Buying 3 or 4 will reduce your chances I think.

Its frustrating but i can live with it.
Hopefully its only going to be this bad short term and i can then get to more matches again once the Kop has opened.
I have only tried to buy tickets as a member twice and failed so gave up.
I enter the ballot for every home game and have managed to be successful twice so it does happen.

I just don't see the Kop being panacea that some people think it will be.

It will certainly improve people chances. And of course it will boost the capactiy by 5500 seats.

But that doesnt mean 5500 extra tickets per home game for members.

You cannot compete with people who have bots set up to secure tickets in a split second, that is what some clever people have done.

Which I'm afraid is going to be longer than we originally thought. A lot longer.

I managed to get a ticket this morning for Gillingham at home but I can't see them selling top & bottom for that especially as their away coaches are going to be in the region of 40 quid (£38 for Crewe). Infuriating to see that lower section go to waste v Salford.

Will likely have to give more to away fans. Not sure how much. Also if we’re thinking of expanding further then there will be closure of other stands whilst work goes on.

if the capacity increases by 5,500 I would expect tickets for members to increase by that amount.

Notwithstanding your point about away fans. Presumably there is some % rule?
