      I thought I'd get the ball rolling since (selfishly) I might need ticketing help. Obviously I'm a bronze member but only have about 67 loyalty points which might not even get me in at the Brickies.

      The game is scheduled for 29th April, but we all know that it will not kick off at 3pm on that date. Historically it's most often been moved to 12.30pm on the Saturday but 5.30pm (unlikely) or even 2pm or 4pm on Sunday are definite possibilities.

      Who is planning on going and any bright ideas about getting tickets welcome....I am happy to pay a reasonable 'finders fee' to a genuine Yid if necessary!!

      Thanks in advance.

      PS expect a similar thread in March when Manchester United at home needs discussion......I will be at that game even if it means forking the pitch at half time.

      I will be travelling for these games,I will be very unpopular with my employers,but i will just have to start this years gigs a few weeks late.I am pretty solid to get a ticket with my membership for both,and have a promise of tickets with a huge loyalty pointed mate,if my +200 isnt enough from previous favours earnt.
      Thomas cook was doing hotels and tickets but the man u game sold out months ago,guess the arse game did too?IMO even getting a maxed out £150 on stubhub will be nigh on impossible,demand is going to be incredible.I would suggest tapping any and everyone you know,and on the day being in N17 incase one should appear on twitter/facebook or bloke in the pub.
      With loss of earnings,flights and then beers etc its a few grand for me,but memories like this are forever,Have to be there !!And if i dont get tickets,i will still be there regardless.

      Yep I feel exactly the same way. I will get one somehow, it's a bit like trying to get Cup final tickets in the 80's...I eventually got one from my brother's mate, who's Dad worked on production for MOTD and he got it from Jimmy Hill....!! There's always a solution! see you in the pub, if not before.

      I want to be there for both these games , and if I don't get a ticket then I'll spend the £80 in the pub - maybe not a good idea. If the cunts move the game to Monday night I will be miffed as fuck, late Sunday is just as bad, NLD on 3pm on the Saturday as @Don Diaz says is as unlikely as me shaking hands with Nigel Garage without donating him a nose full of forehead, but it would be spot on for me, gives me time to get there and get home.

      Wow.... the week after the Marathon... which will be an expensive weekend for me but fuck me would I love to be there for this game.

      I'd happily say that I will 100% be meeting up with the faithful before and after for a few sherberts but if a ticket was to come available for many liquid back handers I'd comfortably say I was in...!!!

      I'm in 100%. I've no chance of getting a ticket with my membership but I'm flying back from Greece on the Wednesday afternoon and gonna fly to London and take the baby to see family down south and on the match day will be at the lane even if I ain't got a ticket then I'll watch it in the brickies. Much like @Don Diaz I'm happy to pay a reasonable finders free to a genuine yido but not the 3//4/5 hundred quid a tout is no doubt gonna ask for. I'm sure my Dad and my cousin will go as my cousin has a season ticket in the disabled area, so might have a chat with the old man and see if he fancies letting me take my cousin to one of the two last games at home and let him have the pick of which one to go to as he is always my cousins helper. He's given me a ticket to the 99 cup final and watched in a pub before so I'm sure he'll be happy to let me go to one of the two games but I'd rather buy a ticket for myself if it is in anyway possible.

      You'll be able to get a ticket for it but it'll be closer to the game I'd say.

      I have 0 chance of getting a ticket for either game but watching it at the Brickies would be sweet.

      Got zero chance of a ticket as well, but I'm fine with that. I'm hoping next season when we're at Wembley, I'll have a chance at a sanely priced ticket. I hate stubhub and am ashamed at a lot of fans selling their tickets on for those ridiculous prices. There is profit and then there is feckin greed....Yeah feeling rather sanctimonious tonight :cool:

      I never know I could win the lottery and then I'd make sure I'd get us all in...

      Next weeks numbers will be 1,2,3,4,5,6. I had a real old barney once with a bloke who thought he was clever and said that a random selection of numbers had a great chance of winning than 1,2,3,4,5,6 - bollox I said, the balls don't know what number they are and that set is as random as any other, one of us was right, fucked if I know which one though.

      I'll be lurking around the ground for both games and if I don't get a ticket in the ballot then I'll just have to kill someone who does. If the unlucky ticket holder doesn't put up a fight then the need for bloodshed will be minimised.

      @skiathospurs do you want to be chairman of this thread from here on in, based on the grounds that you have more mobile numbers than the One Hotspur database, more fingers in more pies than anyone else for tickets, a mostly infinite capacity for alcohol and based on your celebrity Spurs bobble hat TV appearance are more famous than anyone else (until @Thfcire features on the news after the Millwall game).

      Or is it simply a case of Enormous breakfast and a few liveners in the Gilpi from 10.30, followed by drink and song fest in the Brickkies, by the burger stall at the back. Done.

      I'm looking forward to this, now it's got a TV time it feels all the nearer. Will book a train down once the goons are out of champs league as knowing my luck I'll book a ticket and the goons will win 4-0 to go through on goal difference and the game will get changed. It's highly unlikely I know but if I buy a ticket it'll become a lot more likely.

      @skiathospurs @Wotspur @Thfcire @Dorset @Ted the Yid @birdonaball @Liam @everyone else!!! I've just applied for Arsenal tickets on the official site, top price. Didn't realise today was the day...get on it. Skiathos, you need to bring your flight forward a week mate for the semi-final? or are you just going to hang on for the final??!!

      Come on.......great times, it's like being back in the early 80's ha ha, (if you were born then!!)

      I'll apply on my phone now. I've got Bob hope and no hope of getting one as had all my loyalty points wiped through renewing my membership late but will still apply. I should be down for a jolly up whether I get a ticket or not. Worst case scenario is I watch it in the bricks and best case is I do a @boo and get lucky enough to snatch a spare!

      Oh and I wasn't born until 85 @Don Diaz..
