They're really late atm in confirming applications. Everton was the same and I had to withdraw because train tickets were so expensive.

The ticket office is a complete mess at present, as evidenced by last night's entrance problems. They haven't even confirmed the Nicosia way allocations yet - great if you want to try and get out to Cyprus!

Is that for season ticket holders?
It will be yes, may not be 300+ but will be v high as it's a big London derby game.

The cut off for loyalty points is getting higher and higher, I think they're going to have to think about balloting a percentage of the tickets soon to give others a chance.

I'm quite lucky that I go with a large group, who all have 400+ loyalty points as it means more often than not one person can't go and I can get a ticket. It's the only way of getting tickets with the current set-up...

I agree with this. It's a bit of a vicious spiral too. All though you get more loyalty points for the less popular destinations, ST holders can't ever close the gap upwards if they don't have enough points to get the tickets that earns you points in the first place.

So so ST holders keep their loyalty points for as long as they have the ticket?

Lillywhite members can only keep theirs for 5 years so would never get that many points.

ST holders only have 4 (or 5, not sure) years worth of points as well, for example my Dad goes to practically every home and away game and loses hundreds of points each season. But as he has been so often the season before, he always stays above the cut-offs - think he's on 570 now. This is pretty much the same for all of our group, so for someone like me who only has a silver ST from this season I know I've got pretty much no hope of getting a ticket myself and have to rely on others. It's pretty shit, but means I get to go to most games I want like West Ham away next week for example. It's not exactly fair on others who don't have the same connections, but I guess that's just how the situation is for now.

Think they'll need to reassess next season, and wouldn't surprise me if they start balloting a percentage of tickets.

Gutted, always wanted to go to away London derbies.

I've been to West ham and Fulham but with courtesy tickets and sometimes in their fans.

I think the culmination of £30 tickets, our rise in success & the poor home experience (this season) has seen an increase in demand for away tickets. Which is annoying as it means more often than not it'll be the top 5% that take majority of tickets for each game.

As I said, I think this needs to be looked at next season and think it will be to be honest.
