so for a minute i was outraged at sunderland in thinking that the ticket price had shot up from a mere £27 in '09, to £28 in '10 to a whopping £40 in '11. anyone who goes searching for ticket news will see that price and think 'blimey, i'm not going to sunderland then'. i only found the correct price by having a look on here and on the ticketmaster site. they've also listed the allocation as 1700, rather than 2000. talk about shooting yourselves in the foot and making it even more difficult to sell tickets.

sort it out you useless clearings in the woods.

I thought that, useless morons can't even get the simple things right.
Useless moron's is ridiculously harsh. Someone made a typo/cut and paste error. It's slack and lame, and they should check these things before pressing save or send or whatever. But still, that doesn't mean everyone in the ticket office or on the web-side of it is a "useless moron". IMO they're far from that.

they are if you take into account the numerous errors they make, rather than just basing it on the above errors. every couple of away games they make themselves look as if they haven't a clue about how to sell tickets to a football match. it all builds up. and people get frustrated.

they were totally clueless about how many we were taking to west ham last season. they told us 2900, but when counting it up in the ticket office came to the figure 2200, yet still told us we'd taken the 2900 allocation and that's how it stayed on the website. and presumably in the programme. it was only until the day of the game when it became clear that we infact did only have the 2200 allocation.

arsenal was similar. 2200 was printed in the programme time and time again but it turned out we had taken, and sold, the usual 2900 allocation.

the number of mistakes they make is astounding. is it really that difficult to double check? and that's the website and the programme as a whole, i'm constantly reading typos or sentences that just plain don't make any sense.

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

wedge, out of interest, why do you say it's a good day out? where do you drink when you go up there? we've never really been able to pin down an away pub. although we've drank a couple of times in a sunderland pub, a 'spoons, and they've been friendly enough. but would prefer to be with lots of villa for obvious reasons.

Ok it was a harsh exaggeration but they do make numerous simple mistakes on allocations, prices etc...

180 left as of about fifteen minutes ago out of 2,000. More possibly issued for sale on the day at the ground but won't be announced until Friday.

That's a fairly good turn out all things considered.

Agree! Can't wait!

To be honest I think the away support is still really good. We are pretty average nowadays but a lot of people just go to get p****d and have a sing-song. Sunderland/Newcastle is a great away day and they are amongst the cheapest ticket prices in the PL so this is bound to attract a fair few even when we are s***e.
