Spurs tickets 20:56 - Sep 5 with 453 viewsdurham_exile

An absolute shambles, almost as bad as Parliament.

Cannot access the ticket site and suspect that I have missed my opportunity for a ticket.

Seething at present.

Sadly it was just as painful trying to get tickets as a season ticket holder. Only available between 10am-5pm when most of us are at work and the phoneline was either engaged or unanswered as there was no queuing system in place.

Best of luck.

Clearly the night owl is successful with tickets, definitely worth the wait, managed to get a ticket.

Will you have divided loyalties that evening?

Glad to hear it Durham. Got mine earlier - bit of a struggle just to get on hold (rather than engaged), but not too bad once I had.

Glad you (and Wessex) managed to get tickets.

Not really got devided loyalties - this one is easy, I want ColU to win. A win in this game means so much more to the U's, but regardless of that I'd always say ColU are my team ahead of Spurs.

Daniel very pleased to hear it.

Spurs game now sold out.

Should be a cracker.

Bit frustrating as I'd logged on at 8pm and refreshed constantly until 10.30pm, at which point I had to call it a night. Woke up for work at 6am and all sold out. Would have considered buying match credits if the period had been longer than 10-5 on Thursday. I can only check my phone at work during my half an hour lunch break and wasn't prepared to fork out almost a £100 with no guarantee of getting through the queues within half an hour.

I guess it's a bit like the UK's preparation for snow - these kind of games don't come round often enough to justify the club implementing better systems! Would have been nice if there had been a "purchase history" period so genuine Col U fans could have had a chance at tickets before Spurs fans, who undoubtedly contributed to the crashing of the site last night.

Oh well, I am going to see the U's tomorrow against Walsall for my first league game of the season, and I'm very excited!

GOSBTS - sorry you didn't manage a ticket for the Spurs game.

I really hope you enjoy tomorrow's game and that you witness a good home victory.

The club first rewarding Season Ticket Holders and those buying Match Credits is a perfectly reasonable approach to reward loyalty. However, our recent cup record is so abysmal, and early bird prices reasonable, hence some people have got into the habit of not parting with their money at the start of a season and will buy individual tickets.

My guess is even if there was a third tier of priority based on such ad-hoc attendances many would still lose out due to the two tickets per ST rule/limit. Arguably, should that limit be one? I didn't take up my second, but I suspect most did. Perhaps next season will see a rise in ST and Match Credit sales and a one per ST/MC policy announced in advance of the cup draws?

I'm all for two tickets per season ticket holder, hope that continues in the future. It's nice to feel valued for a change! There can't be that many of us (say 1000) and not everyone will take up the extra ticket, so it doesn't make that much of a difference to sales.

Other than GOSBTS, did everyone on here who wanted a ticket get one? The reason I ask is because when I saw Durham was having trouble, I bought a spare ticket in case he or one of the other regulars here didn't get one.

I'll offer it to GOSBTS if no one else comes forward (face value of course).

How very very thoughtful Daniel. There are kindly people on this board.
I have to watch from afar so have no need but the recipient is lucky due to the thought you showed.

Daniel I definitely echo those sentiments a tremendously thoughtful and kind thing to do.

I hope that the recipient is grateful.

Daniel, I did not expect to see this when I perused this thread tonight!! That is overwhelmingly kind. Please do hold on to it just in case somebody else you know better comes forward, or if a friend/relative is in need of a ticket. If nobody else does then I would be over the moon to buy it off of you. A heartfelt thank you in advance!
