This is a problem with the AST that I have sent emails to the club on with no success - there is no flexibility or route to sell back away tickets.

You are basically committing to 40 games minimum in a season due to the cup games (home and away included), I go out of my way to make every game but there are a game you can't help but miss so I do feel there should be the option to 'opt out' of say a maximum of 2 games a season.

Also think the fact Away League cup and FA cup replays are now included is unfair, people are committing to go to weekend games or the odd Fri/Mon game but these are always midweek which means time off work or if like my missus (who works in a school and can't take holiday) has little chance of making these games plus shifting tickets is hard as these are less likely to sell out.

You used to be able to return tickets under the AST scheme but the current regime put a stop to it.

I will let you know, its few and far between maybe one game a season.


On a separate note I see Sunderland isn't sold out and now on members sale which is why I find the comments able PP and AST annoying. Surely if you are wanting to get to an away game and build some points to get to 'better matches' its games like this you need to do - like most things you have to do a bit of hard work (or a couple hundred miles more and and loads of stairs) to get rewards

No complaints about tickets this week...funny that !

I'm sorry to sound heartless but it does my head in a bit when people moan about Bournemouth, Palace and Arsenal when had you gone to the games which had gone to general you'd have had enough points not too worry..

Exactly, thing I don't get is apart from may saving £20 odd quid on fuel (probably make a few quid back on the parking and drink/food being cheaper) what is the difference between going to Bournemouth or Sunderland?

I left for Bournemouth at 10am and got home about 8.30pm, I will leave for Sunderland at 8am and probably be home at 10pm not really like you can do much else with the day.

In fact it will probably will be a more pleasant experience driving to Sunderland than the grief of getting to and from Watford by train last month.

Some of my favorite away day memories are of the long trips to the north east (Sunderland, Newcastle, Middlesboro, Hartlepool). Usually stay over and the laughs are much more worth it then the football that's served up. Going on the 15th :thup:

Just bought my ticket, debating whether to drive and book the Hilton next to the stadium or wait to see if any coaches are on, anyone stayed in the Hilton next to it?

Another difference usually between Bournemouth and Sunderland is around 10 degrees. :D

I just got all nostalgic over the old "fish pun on Friday tradition"!

Seriously though if there is evidence of tickets being sold at over the odds through here please let us know.

I've booked it with free cancellation anyway just in case, comes with a parking space. Travelling up on my own so nice and easy. Beers in the bar after and a bit of room service will do me :)
