Probably covered before but this seems to be a few fans who have been going for a few years thinking they are entitled to go to a few so called glamour fixtures and when they cant making a lot of noise to the club. Pathetic. There are lots of gigs and sporting events for example that I cant get tickets for but just accept others are more committed / entitled than me and move on. The current system (excluding the stupid ballot) has worked for year but the club always seem to listen to the few and not the many.
Where were these few when we played Kidderminster, 400 of us at Blackburn during ground developments, Anglo Italian cup games, Bristol rovers away when they played at Bath, Newcastle when Dicksie elbowed Carr, gutted on the pitch when we thought we had won the Div 1 title only for Oldham to get a last minute winner, Oldham with the coin operated scoreboard, Grimsby FA cup, numerous early / late / mid-week kick off's moved for TV, games at UP with crowds sub 15k, sat in away ends when couldn't get a ticket etc etc and many more since. Where were you then eh?
These mugs still wont get tickets going forwards as a few extra points still wont get them to 90% of games and certainly not the ones they want.
All they will do is piss of the many and deny a lot of fans who are able to get tickets only because this secondary market exists. These mugs could use this option themselves but assume they wont coz they want a point to attend when a few extra points will get them nowhere. Except it, many do, its virtually a closed shop and they must wait your turn. A relegation and rise in tickets is probably their only hope.
Not got a problem with anyone selling a few aways (or homes) over the course of a season at face value. However Tour operators, ticket sites and people selling over face value deserve to be grassed up and dealt with by the club, not the ones who have managed to get themselves in prime position due to decades of support / suffering.
Moving on - how can the club identify individuals on twitter if the user account is not name specific e.g. WHU SPARE TIX 1895 etc? I suspect they cant, without help from twitter, but am no tech wizard. If they cant just set up an account with no link to your name surely?
See you all at Everton
