    Got my ticket this afternoon. Despite the restricted window it didn't actually take too long.
    In the upper tier because I wasn't paying stupid money for better seats. It's still cost me £50 mind you.

    how are the ticket sales going for other clubs, we're selling really slowly as the ridiculous prices have put a lot of people off and i've heard from a chelsea mate that they're struggling to sell theirs too for the same reason.

    The FA have really f*cked up the pricing on these games, when it's going to cost you £50 or £70 to have your kid sat pitch side it's verging on the immoral.

    40,000 odd season ticket holders. Heard from a couple of friends (members) that have picked up tickets today.

    Shocking it isn't season ticket holders only.

    All st's who applied sorted, apparently 700 went up the other day and they were snapped up. Caved in and going now, on the lookout for another spare for a pal. Mad to think at least 20k ST's and all members would have no ticket.

    Chelsea fella sits next to me at work, been through there whole phase and he has been given the chance to buy more which surprised me.

    Ticket sales have been shocking across all four clubs, the FA have absolutely f*cked up their pricing on this and the concession tickets are such a disgrace i actually think it should be looked into.

    Just paid £80 face for another ticket.

    It means us going are sorted, I'd never pay it usually but I know come 4pm Sunday with the sun out I'd regret not being inside.

    But it s an utter pisstake... then again everyone's paid it so they are laughing to the bank.

    £80 is a f*cking disgrace, but i bet you other clubs will use it as a stick to beat us with. Funny to think the skates struggled to sell out their final when it was £30 a ticket yet they'll be taking the piss about us now at more than double the price.

    Not sure exactly as a new criteria came into effect this morning, but last night there was about 5k left as they put some that had been held back as comps on sale.

    I know Chelsea are letting their season ticket holders and members buy up to 3 extra now, part of me actually wants a lot of empty seats so that the FA get the message loud and clear that they need to stop ripping off fans.

    Where do Spurs usually drink before homes? Been told Baker Street is pretty busy.

    Remember nipped their before the Palace game and it was 90% Palace, maybe it's a London team thing?

    Baker Street, Liverpool Street or around Wembley. Probably dependent on where you're travelling from.

    Plenty tend to drink around Wembley including myself.

    Baker st is normally pretty busy but better than the options by Wembley itself. If you're coming in from Euston as i guess you are then Paddington has some good pubs by the canals and maida vale has some really good real ale pubs if that's your thing, the Elgin especially is a cracking pub (The Elgin – Maida Vale, Bar & Lounge in London)

    Kilburn for us, United tend to drink their every Wembley and often very very few opposing fans which I find odd. Probably due to the proximity to Euston, I live in London now so I'm looking forward to not have to travel down. Thanks for recommendations with thensummer coming :cool:

    I've been around Wembley a few times but gets rammed a bit early, then again a load of cans is never a bad shout. Looking forward to it now.

    To be honest last time round we drunk in Soho then went up to the ground late, but then i find a sizeable selection of our support annoying as f*ck so don't want to be anywhere near them

    Agreed, less the merrier. Just easier to meet up with mates but then off somewhere quiet

    No way we're beating United in the Semi's. Chelsea vs United final nailed on.
