  1. Our New Stadium

    I would still have something like this... Over this... Ours might look a bit odd at first but at least it will be unique and I think most will grow to love it, it's doing something different unlike Arsenal, Tottenham & West Ham. We could do with some better images of it though.

  3. RIP Roy Bentley

    RIP Roy Bentley. Another legend gone.
  4. FA Cup Semi Final

    Finally sold out now.
  5. Thank You Mr Roman Abramovich

    Didn’t RA lose just over 500m because of US sanctions also, heard people say it’s not that much to him but when he’s funding the new stadium out of his own pocket 500m is about half what that will be. If he loses more I’d guess that would make the stadium build even more costly for him. I don’t know this stuff very well mind so I could be wrong.
  6. FA Cup Semi Final

    You are correct. I’ve just been looking around and Man Utd haven’t sold out either. One can hope the FA will take notice they’ve made a massive f**k up with these prices.
  7. FA Cup Semi Final

    I totally agree about the prices, but if we are the only team that doesn't sell their allocation than I doubt the FA will take any notice. If all four teams did not sell out because of this it would for sure make a statement but when it's just us with empty seats I suspect it will just lead to ridicule by the twitter mob.
  8. FA Cup Semi Final

    Southampton - FA Cup semi-final - Wembley - Sunday 22 April We have received an additional 838 tickets for the Semi Final taking our allocation to 34804. Tickets are still on sale to season ticket holders and members (one ticket per person). From Monday 16 April 7am ONLINE ONLY: Season ticket holders and members can purchase an extra two tickets (maximum of three in total). We regret that tickets already purchased cannot be swapped. Looks like now you'll be able to purchase an extra two tickets. Hopefully it will finally sell out?

    That is a shame. Maybe one day they'll realise we need safe standing...
  10. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Why are people talking as if he’s been sacked?
  11. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I think it’s if we finish 7th & Southampton win the FA cup.
  12. FA Cup Semi Final

    Honestly I've stopped listening to him weeks ago, don't read his manager notes in the programs anymore either. I can understand why people feel more disconnected to our current squad than any other too. As for loyalty points anything under 110 will do for me. Knowing my luck it will be 120 or something! The thing is I thought it would be low in 2016 but it still turned out to be quite high.
  13. FA Cup Semi Final

    If we are doing well, i.e. in contention to win the league or going deep in the CL then we sell our seats. Last year and in 2015 you could even miss out category B home games. This season, with the exception of the start, it's been easy to get hold of a home ticket. I haven't missed out on a single one. For league games like Swansea, Bournemouth, West Brom it has gone to general sale and hundreds of season ticket holders put up their seat on the exchange. I think Arsenal in the League cup semi-final went on general sale too and when I was at that game in the MHL there was a decent number of empty seats around me. And I've seen people have made the point about the exchange. I have seen hundreds on there for West Ham this Sunday and Newcastle at home and Watford to name more examples. Even if the VWR f**ks you over you can still go & sit in someone else’s seat. Which makes me wonder where have all these people gone from last season? It's not just glory hunting members it's also season ticket holders that seem to be able to give up their seat for 10 games this season. Has this been a sh*t season? I suppose, but if finishing 5th and potentially making it to/winning an FA Cup final is a sh*t season than it certainly shows how expectations have changed. I think it's embarrassing actually. We will sell out our Wembley allocation it just will take a while as I believe a lot of our supporters have become Jaded and don't want to go. Most of the people going will probably be people going to see Chelsea at Wembley for the first time or people that haven't gone to a single game this season and it's not their fault if they have the chance to.
