Fulham Away Tickets (Merged)

Not true Wheelchair users are but ambulant disabled who must phoned are not separate

So they are sat within the same area as the rest of us?

I'm missing why they should be given any priority in that situation 

Those with a wheelchair and having a carer are given specialist tickets so not affected by these earlier sales

When I phoned this morning,was told by TKT office,one TKT each untill general sale,

The ticket system allows you to buy multiple tickets providing the owners are eligible - so I  buy on behalf on my mates, all season ticket holders of 50 years standing,  ensuring we sit together. Tickets are allocated to the legitimate owners. No scam.

We are. We so are.

Derby is 11 miles further on from Burton. We sold out the Burton allocation - 1700 - two years running, yet take a few hundred to Derby County.

I still think we are a L1 club - you can take a club out of L1, but .... etc - or a lower league club with a big following for big cup occasions and the odd league game but are really happier being a big ish fish at a smaller piss pot club like Burton, Rovers etc

 

Nope, a Premier League club in training......

Why is there reduced allocation at Reading? 

They split what was the away end in half now. 

All to do with getting home support on all four sides of the ground

Like that will make a difference in that soulless bowl of a stadium.

I agree. All it means is that Reading will have less away fans, I can’t see any more start to follow them. I have only been there once but it was a ‘never again’ type of experience.

Chatting to a few of their fans before the match they sounded really flat. They had just had their Premiership experience and didn’t see themselves getting anywhere near that again for quite a while. I can see them being relegated to league one before they make that challenge again too. The fans weren’t up for the fight and it makes a non atmosphere I found. Quite a weird experience as an away trip.

For big games, for derby games, for important games at the end of the season.

We could do that- 2,300, suitable segregation then home fans in the rest- I hope the club take note. Proximity to away fans can help too. Would the demand be there for normal games mid season? Possibly not- but like what we did v Derby and in the Cup games v the Manchester sides, I hope this is something we consider again.

I've been 4 times and will go again this season just as it's close if nothing else.

But it really isn't a good away day as you said.

Dead ground, no where near anything in particular, beer that is 99% bleach, stewards think they're border control and the traffic leaving is shocking.

Reading is a great away day as long as you leave it late to go from the city centre to the ground and then make a sharpe exit back to the city centre after the game.

But if you are driving it is hell trying to get away after the game.

Agree, there are some great little pubs just off the city centre, always enjoy Reading away.

 Every year I see people moaning about Reading away being boring but I’ve had a great day out every time I’ve been on the train!

I’m also once and never again.

Had a lift down- got stuck in traffic so took the best part of 5 hours, also queued at the box office to collect my ticket for 20 minutes in the rain and missed the first 15 mins of the game.

Rubbish game which we lost 1-0 in injury time.

My lift was continuing to Bristol so I had to get the train back to Manchester and got stuck in traffic to the station cutting it fine to catch the train.

Raced into the station to try and find a shop to buy something to read and something to eat only to find all them all shut.

Phone battery died as I got on the train and I find that I’ve left my charger in my mates car.

Shop on train is also shut.

Train is delayed giving me 4 hours to sit with nothing to do except stare out the windows and ponder the result whilst starving hungry. Never been so bored (with possible exception of the 75 mins of the game id just watched...).

 

all in all not my best away day!

That's the club. As for us lot - just picture a Monday night, the away end at Burnley* live on sky, and tell me what you see: a "Premier League club" following, or a L1 following?

Ive supported City for over 50 years, and throughout that whole time i think the club/fans have always had a Championship , 2nd Division old money, mentality. However the " Premier League Club in training" tag is i think now true, and that is our destiny. The club is continuing to put in place the infrastructure/facilities and our growing support (season tickets up/away following) is catching up.

There are no guarantees, but the future looks bright, even if i can not get a bloody ticket for first Luton and now Fulham

Got my ticket for the home end. £43 ! Bloody London prices . Going with my Fulham supporting mate .

Someone I know did the same but has since had contact advising them their purchase has been cancelled 

Don't forget it's common practice for clubs to swap details of supporters purchase history. 

I hate to say this but if you have purchase history with City you will do VERY well to keep these tickets

I suspect the same unfortunately- posting it on a public forum too is something that would have helped Fulham further.

No; doubt you’re right. Don’t live in Bristol so have sometimes bought tickets for other teams. Don’t have a problem. 

I’d like to think that people could do this, otherwise you pretty much couldn’t go and watch any team but your own! Maybe it usually isn’t a problem unless the away allocation is sold out?

I guess if someone was say a Birmingham fan going to watch the Fulham v City game it wouldn’t be a problem as they would be ‘neutral’ as such ( Fulham before the development had a block for such fans, I’ve never seen it anywhere else). But in most grounds regulations it does state ‘home fans only’ in the majority of areas,  so potentially going in the home end you could be breaking their regulations and you almost certainly would be removed. 

This would be a shame really as there is no history of violence between the clubs, but it only takes one idiot from either side I guess. Also we can’t then complain if the odd away fan sits in the South Stand etc at AG if we do the same.

The tickets were bought by my mate whose a Fulham STH and are in his name. 

He sat with me when Fulham came to AG last season. 

He’s  a lovable Cockney and a good,traditional Fulham supporter of the old School. 

I hope I can contain myself as well as he did last  season. I’ve never been in the away end as such before but been a neutral many times.

Unfortunately the way Fulham have organised their rebuilding means the away fans share the end with Fulham. Although the stewards police the exit from the seats, the fans then share the concourse. It is much more like going to rugby where the fans mingle. 
Let’s hope that it remains peaceful.

With the other half of the stand previously being a "neutral" section fans have been in together before

I cant believe that the lady that makes teas and coffees on CATS coach no 1 (SALLY?) for every away game

of the season, cant get a ticket for Fulham. Surely someone at the club or Jerry can pull a few strings and

help her out.

Why should she get any priority over anyone else just because she chooses to make tea for people on a coach?

VERRRRRRRRY long shot but does anyone have a spare adult and under 18 ticket they want to sell?  Or 2 adults?   Booked the train months ago and then couldn't assign my sons name to a ticket when I tried ordering last Monday.

All to do with the home fans not making any noise and 3500+ away fans making lots and giving the advantage to the away team

Same reason as at AG? :ph34r:

Atyeo holds 4,200 but we give 2,300 or thereabouts and have them in the top half...as of this season.

We do have a better home atmosphere than at Reading in reality, but could also be linked to us restricting numbers too? Still sounds like it's across the board.

Wasn't my the Aytyeo reduced after the Swansea fans took liberties
