It would be more than will actually go if these pathetic sales arrangements were scrapped

It's about time the club recognised that there are supporters like me who have to arrange a lot more than buying the ticket. Firstly, I can't buy until the Weds so for them to send me my ticket in post means that it won't arrive on time, second, I can't buy my flight until then which is twice as expensive as done now so the whole process is vastly more expensive than it needs to be. The club needs to understand these issues and make it a half day buying window for each loyalty point qualification and get it done in half the time. It doesn't need to be dragged out like it is !!

The Weds before the Sat is too f'ing late, the club needs to start considering people who aren't living a stones throw from The Den. If someone from the Ticket Office is reading this I'd be interested in their comments

Or they could just scrap membership, tickets, points and vouchers and let people pay at the turnstiles. It worked very well for over a hundred years.

I am in exactly the same position. I will chance it with them and ring early and bugger the points. If they haven't sold loads i can't see why it would be a problem.

Yeah i used to do that quite a lot. Any away tickets purchased and not collected from the ticket office get sent to the away ground with the coach, then you just collect on arrival at their ticket office. Ive done it a load of times and never had a problem.

I don't get this anger towards the loyalty points.

Surely the most active current fans should get first dibs on buying a ticket?

What's wrong with that.

I was a season ticket holder up until this season - so missed out on an Aston Villa ticket (had to sit in the home end!). But, I didn't begrudge all those who got a ticket cos of loyalty points - they had earned them by supporting the club more than I had this season.

Like I said the loyalty points reward the most active current fans. That's a good thing surely? Why shouldn't the season ticket holder who has also done a lot of away games to unfashionable places get first dibs over Mr One Big Game a Season? Or even someone who used to go a lot, but picks and chooses now?

I thought it was only these 'millennials' that had a sense of entitlement?

Also, the club aren't blackmailing people into buying a season ticket. The ST is a discounted way to support the club!! As for the membership, we have kinda brought that on ourselves - the club uses it as a defense against the FA and Police. It allows us to say 'Well, we only sold tickets to our members, if hooligans got tickets or where let in by the opposition club, what can we do?' Although I do think that the members only rule should only apply to high profile matches - it is a nonsense that Millwall fans cannot pay on the day at places like Norwich City, Ipswich, Reading etc etc

Sort of agree with this Moody. The only problem is that there is loyal support that isn't local to Millwall. Plenty of Wall in the North and then you get the likes of Guernsey Wall, there is no way these can travel to all home games.

I'm currently on the train doing the 120 mile + round trip, by comparison this is relatively cheap compared to some. One day travel card £16, match ticket £8 (shit cup game).

Not sure of the answer, Potd is the most unlikely in this day and age.

This is a good point, and yes that's unfortunate.

Perhaps the club could create a special membership - Gold membership or something.

You pay 50 quid and get 150 loyalty points loaded up & can add to them with away games. Perhaps double the points of normal membership?

Not perfect - but im not sure how the club can really solve the issue for those exiled fans.

Pay on the day is still an option for every other club in the FL. Millwall fans should be able to walk up on the day to places like Reading.

Moody... You make it sound like the club are doing us a favour by letting us watch them. There were 13,000 empty seats at Villa but our fans are told we can't go. This sort of thing is killing the game.

They are doing the most active fans a favour by helping them get priority over more casual fans.

Back in 1995 I was a regular, saw us play crap like Tranmere and Port Vale and went away to places like Luton and Swindon. Do you think I got a ticket for Chelsea at home or away in the cup that year? Like fuck I did - as everyone came out of the woodwork and the club sold on a first come, first served basis.

At least that they wouldn't happen with the loyalty points.

I'm not sure what the empty seats at Villa Park have to do with it. They are home area seats. What if Villa fans suddenly decided to turn up in numbers, they'd be a bit miffed if they'd been allocated to Millwall fans who may or may not turn up on the day.

Or are you suggesting they should do away with segregation? Well, you can blame the club for that, blame the baby boomers!

Besides, I sat in the home end - so easily took one of those 13,000 spare seats.

I agree that 90% of our games should be pay on the day - but I actually think the loyalty points are good for the most active fans. Can you imagine the scramble for Spurs tickets without the points. Dave from Dartford who only goes to big games may have nicked a ticket off a regular fan.

Moody - Voucher scheme was finally introduced after trouble at the 2007/08 game. Millwall declined to take any tickets in 2005/06 when it was first mooted after trouble at the game the previous season.

i feel like the point system works as fans who are most loyal should have the right to first dibs but after the first week of sales they should put them up to everyone who has a account regardless of membership or loyalty point status, remember for some games we don't even sell out our away allocation and it seems like a bit of a waste of tickets when i'm sure there are fans who would like to do away days even if its only a one off type of thing or haven't had the chance to build up enough points but who could say no to bringing more fans the more the merrier hey.

I'm sure the points system is pretty much through the board at most clubs ,I feel we are just getting a raw deal through reputation, non followers of football here you support millwall and there's a different attitude towards you.They don't know you but you've been judged.dont think that will ever change as the media love us to bits ,we are a headline,scoop or whatever.coyl.x
