Champ League Final - Ticket allocation


quizgod

Recommended Posts

I live in Liverpool and work in St Helens.

In the office there are season ticket holders of Liverpool, who have been checking their website all morning for the results of the ballot of CL Final ticket allocation.

There are some 31,000 approx season ticket holders/fancard members, and the computer is drawing randomly 16,791 names, who will be given Final tickets( even if they are not going to Athens)

It would be really funny is all the Liverpool fans here fail to get tickets.

Even joked with one guy, that all his family will fail to get tickets, except his wife.

He asked if she got a ticket could he have it, she said yes for ?1,000.

Really she said he can stay home and look after the kids, as she would be in Athens......lmao

This has made my day so far.

The last week has been hell for me.

thats not accurate mate. The ballot is only for fancard holders who have been to 6 champions league games (home or away) not all fancard/season ticket holders. It means that you will have had to have been going to the games to get a ticket. There will be thousands who miss out, but there is probably no fairer way of doing it. It is just like you lot with the FA cup, the majority of tickets arent given to the clubs, just pushed to corporates and 'the football family' so that they can flog them on ebay or the black market.

Suppose you could always use the 2005 final ticket, forge one, or get a few thousand ticketless supporters together and simply try and steamroller your way through the turnstiles. It wouldn't be the first time, certainly won't be the last icon_wink.gif

just incase you were interested, seems to be something dodgy going on, there were in the region of 24,000 fans in the ballot, with around 4,000 gauranteed for going to 7 or more games. 17,000 allocation, so really it should be a 1 in 2 success rate for those getting tickets, so far on the forum i go on, it is 11 in 65, but everyone who has a corporate season ticket is getting a ticket.

f**king stinks.

Hi Rob,

Totally agree with you on this.

Strange that the corps get tickets, bet they did not have all the CL Games.

I know of fans who follow Liverpool, and were in the ballot but did not get any.

The guy i work with nobody in his or his wifes family got a ticket, and he told me there are 33 of them, and also all of his mates have not been successful.

i doubt they were all in the ballot though, i cannot beleive an entire family of 33 people will have all been to 6 CL games this season. I may be wrong, but it doesnt sound right does it. I wasnt in the ballot but it sounds fishy.

This is something I have wanted to say for a while now but have been reluctant to do so because of the delicate nature of the subject, but after reading reports of what happened in Athens last night, feel that the time is right to finally do so.

Since that God awful day at Hillsborough, we have had to listen to the self pitying "we are the victims" wailing and weeping coming from certain sections of Liverpool fans who completely refuse to accept that on that horrendous day, a large section of their own fans WERE to blame, we have all heard how various sections of the authorities failed tragically that day to cope with the mass of fans launching themselves at the turnstiles minutes before kick off, many of them in a drunken state without tickets, giving no thought (or care) whatsoever to the possible outcome of their actions.

Since that day we have had to listen to "it was the Police's fault....."it was the FA's fault...."it was Sheff Wed's fault " etc etc, everyone was at fault that day except their own precious bloody fans, I like many other people remember watching it all unfold live on TV at the time and I had tears rolling down my face thinking "oh God please not again!" remembering Heysel just a couple of years earlier, we then had to witness the heartbreaking images in the press over the next few days of rows of blanket covered bodies laid out, and of people being crushed against the fences, their faces twisted in fear and pain.

Then the memorial services and the funerals of the victims, God help them! surely nothing would ever erase those images from the memories of anyone who witnessed them? surely the situation would never again occur where so many innocent people would have their lives put in jeopardy like this again? surely the authorities must do something to prevent such a disaster ever happening again? well yes they did, over the next few years we witnessed sweeping changes to grounds all over the country to ensure greater safety for fans, all seater stadia, the removal of perimeter fences, better and more sophisticated modes of entrance to grounds, better ticket allocation (??) for bigger games, and many more schemes all introduced to make attending a game a safer more enjoyable experience for everyone.

However, there is one animal that is still proving difficult to harness, and that is the savage brain dead neanderthal that lurks in the shadows, who's determination to get into the ground with or without a ticket is paramount, and if that means he and a load of like minded neanderthals have to rush the gates and storm through or over them to gain entry then so be it, so what if people get hurt ? so what if people have tickets ? I'm going to get in no matter what.

This, I want to make clear is not directed at "ALL" Liverpool fans, many of whom I have met down the years both through football and in everyday life, and for the best part have been decent normal folk who love their club and go about their lives in a decent respectable manner like the majority of people anywhere, what I am trying to point out is that after recent events which have gone largely unreported in the media, it is time to weed out the scum that still persist with this exercise of "Bunking" and even brag about it on their own forums, and travelling abroad to games like last night without tickets, with the sole intention of "Bunking" into the ground in their thousands regardless of what might happen once inside.

Some snippets I have read this morning are already paving the way to blaming the authorities for some of the incidents that occurred last night, but thank God we were spared another atrocity, perhaps through luck more than judgement but it would appear that in spite of the horrendous events I spoke of at the start of this post, you get the feeling that somewhere down the line (God forbid!) this will happen again, unless that is, those responsible for creating such possible scenarios take it on themselves to remember what happened, think about what could happen, and ask themselves "could I live with having played a part in that happening again?

I apologise sincerely if some of my comments have caused any anguish or upset to decent Liverpool fans who may be reading this, but please understand that this is directed at the no good scumbags who are a disease that your Club has had masquerading as "fans" for many years now and a disease that sadly too many innocent people (including some of your own!) have had the misfortune of coming into contact with.

I don't think we were spared through luck rather than judgement. I think there is every possobility we were spared another tragedy because the Greek Police acted correctly by not letitng people in. (I touched on this in another thread)

Last night the greek police took what they considered to be the necessary action to prevent the stadium becoming overcrowded and some Liverpool fans are looking to blame them - is it safe to assume that these are not the same Liverpool fans who blamed the Sheffield police for letting the fans in?
