Formans used their influence and favours owed after getting kicked out of their old place for the Olympics in getting the new footbridge built. It's now a 2 minute walk from their place to the A turnstiles. Quite a few corporates do their pre-match dining there.

**Auto opt in home cup games**

I got this email back from the ticket office...
Not sure if this means it will automatically revert back or if I will have to.

---------------------

Thank you for your email.

This is a temporary problem and we are working hard to fix this. Please disregard and carry on renewing or give us a call at the Ticket Office and we can do it for you. 0333 030 1966 option 4.

Kind regards,

Tracy

I love the use of the word 'limited'. Unless a stand or a ground literally has an infinite amount of seats any number from one to 10,000 could be covered by 'limited'.

That they have to take out full page ads and cobble together unprofessional, illiterate emails to try to flog these says they're struggling. :thup:

Got a text this afternoon, to go with the email yesterday about upgrading to Club London. If they start ringing then you know they are desperate!

This extra seats thing is still coming up in emails, those thousands on the waiting list only wanting a single seat must be fuming

YOUR CHANCE TO SECURE ADDITIONAL SEATS FOR FRIENDS OR FAMILY

As an extra benefit, you will be able to apply for a limited number of single seats, giving you the opportunity to secure an additional Season Ticket in your block or the adjacent one, subject to availability.

I wont be going for it. I clearly said I do not have any connection and neither am I a customer. I was offering up a suggestion.

Apologies for trying to be constructive.

Each lounge is allocated a number of away tickets which the Club London members can apply for on a first come first served basis. You have no need to accumulate points to qualify if your a Club London member.

A friend does some work for someone that has 9 decent seats in Club London, can't remember the cost but it didn't include grub that is extra

They are normally empty, but he does renew as his business does good so he can afford it

Correct grub is a (lot) extra. Just a half time beer included

I'd love to know how many. I bet they are not one member one ticket either.

UG has a post about this in the away tickets thread (I think).
Think there is a limit to how many you are allowed but no idea of numbers.
The club need to be totally transparent about this.

The minimum is 200, but the number depends on the take up elsewhere as to ultimately how many. No it isn't one member one ticket, I have had up to four at a time, including Spurs away in the cup last season.

This is mad. we bleat on about the 10% ballot of those trying to get on the away points ladder, while the poshos have access to much more?

(In other news, makes sure UG's mobile number on my phone is up to date)

Update on mine and my dads ticket got a call on the Friday before last home game that they will offer us the one year deal we said we will go ahead with it seeing as you won’t let us downgrade but our seat has now been sold apparently to a someone downgrading from Arnold hills I said why can’t we downgrade if they did apparently club London is nothing to do with normal seats you’ve got to join the waiting list, So we’ve got new seats now not really what we wanted.

All this could of been prevented if they offered people a yearly ticket rather than 3 years also not sure why it took to the Friday to call me when others was offered Tuesday then club emailed everyone Saturday morning
