Sorry, posted too early.

Looking for a potentially better/ cheaper option for tickets. Are StubHub/ Ticketmaster resales any use? Any other sites?

I tried to tell him it was too much, but he said it means a lot to him, and might be his last ever live game (he's got artificial limbs and finds it difficult to attend games these days), so we're determined to go, just want to save him some pennies.

Thanks to all for reading this, your potential help, and your contributions to my most frequently visited website!

I know of a person who sells tickets (a tout) . Has a pretty good reputation in terms of reliability. Never used him myself but did look at getting tickets a few times, prices weren't extortionate but still not cheap. Happy to pass a link on but best to ask the Ed's first if it can be posted.


2.) 18 Jun 2024 15:54:37
Rugby sign up for yearly LFC membership and enter the ballots. First ballots open next Monday.

Its luck at the end of the day but if you do get lucky you get them at actual price. People i know got none last season and i got lucky on 3 games for me and my son where it only cost him £9.

Hey Stuie

Thanks, that would be good if the eds can facilitate it?

Willing to look at all options available and balance risk Vs price, as I couldn't live with myself if my da forked out and I screwed it up by ordering dodgy tickets (don't mean your suggestion is dodgy at all btw! ) .

Thanks again, and Ed's, just let us know the best way to exchange the link.

{Ed033's Note - How about if Rugby Parker and stuie_boy submit their email addresses into a posting form FTAO Ed033

Thanks ed, submitted now.

Thanks JK, I'll sign up, but unfortunately we're travelling from the Highlands and life dictates there's only certain times we'd be able to go down, so ideally looking for an option to pick the specific game. Thanks again though, will sign up in hope!

Any other suggestions are very welcome, and thanks all, really appreciate it.

{Ed033's Note - Received Rugby Parker email. Waiting for stuie_boy to reply.

Rugby just for info mate the ballot next week will be for games up to and including dec.

So it’s not a weekly thing. So if it’s nov / dec game you want you will literally know if you have the tickets when they are drawn in say Jul.


7.) 19 Jun 2024 07:59:17
Thanks JK mate, that makes it a better option, as we're looking at villa or (unlikely, I know) City in November as ideal games. Worth a shot!

Thanks again everyone who has responded, it means a lot!


8.) 19 Jun 2024 08:42:46
Rugby the club select what games obviously go out for Ballot.

I'd say its almost 100% certain City won't be one of those games mate.

Last season there were no title rival or derby games on the ballot.

The 3 i got were Brentford, Fulham and Forest.

For the big games even the touts charge more because of the demand.

Hi guys

Looking for advice. My dad is wanting to take me to a game this season as a belated 40th birthday present. We were going to go the hospitality route for easiness, but just looked and the cheapest package is about £340 per person, and that's the basic hospitality deal.

Can anyone advise on a potential better (and cheaper option.

How would people feel about Tierney as a signing for the defence?

In our new system, the LB effectively plays like Tierney does for Scotland, and he's never put a foot wrong for Scotland.

I know he's not had the greatest injury record, but he's a talented player and probably available for a decent price.

Rugby Parker

{Ed001's Note - no point he can't and won't stay fit and he takes time to get his form back after each injury.}


1.) 06 Aug 2023 02:14:25
Awful referee and hates us anyway. No thanks.


2.) 07 Aug 2023 08:04:40
Wow, now that went down like a lead balloon.

Just read that Alexis Mac Allister has a brother called Kevin who plays in Argentina.

I think we should sign him too. Not only would it help Alexis settle, but he'd already have his own song, "You'll Never Walk (Home) Alone"!

Rugby Parker

1.) 08 Jun 2023 13:45:45
We (Ireland) missed the boat on Alexis. Perhaps the name Alexis threw us off the scent of his irishness but there's no excuse to miss out on a guy called Kevin Mac Allaister. FAI should sign him up for next game and cap him immediately.

I will google him now to see if he s any good.


2.) 08 Jun 2023 16:34:39
I've heard he's very cunning and a bit of a trickster Davey, very hard to catch and he goes missing on away trips.

{Ed025's Note - love it Top G..


3.) 08 Jun 2023 20:38:04
We already signed his older brother Gary.


4.) 08 Jun 2023 22:12:59
He's a Mac not a Mc @ Davey. SFA should have been after him.


5.) 09 Jun 2023 00:30:34
Wasn’t Kevin supposed to be on the plane to the with Alexis and his dad?

Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere on here, but congratulations to Luton for getting promotion, I love a proper underdog being in the PL, they've done brilliantly, and it will be fun seeing the big time Charlie's playing at Kenilworth next season.

Rugby Parker

1.) 28 May 2023 10:09:10
Definitely away tickets people want to try and get.


2.) 28 May 2023 10:55:28
Unbelievable! I'd give Luton a massive swerve! I'd rate it as the worst place I've ever been.


3.) 28 May 2023 11:08:35
one of our bogey teams back in the day.


4.) 28 May 2023 11:32:37
Marty, that for me would be Birmingham ?.


5.) 28 May 2023 11:49:25
Ha ha MK. tbf that is a very close second. Luton is a massive hole.


6.) 28 May 2023 12:00:18
Pinched this. Too funny not to share.

Excited to see Var work at Luton next season.

On field referee walking into the living room of one of the houses on Kenilworth road and rewinding the incident on sky plus.


7.) 28 May 2023 12:33:17
Saw that JK too funny lol.


8.) 28 May 2023 14:02:29
If you’ve never seen Luton away stand, take a look ?
The fact you have to enter through basically somebody’s front door. Then proceed through their back garden to enter the stadium is full on fantastic.


9.) 28 May 2023 15:44:57
I drive past the Luton stadium on a regular basis - sh*thole.
I remember driving past it the morning after Xabi's "own half of the pitch goal" back in 2005/ 6 and it was just the same hovel then.
Congratulations to them, it'll be interesting to see if they manage to stay up.


10.) 28 May 2023 16:33:26
Birmingham is relatively a paradise compared to Luton.
Its only redeeming feature is a rather excellent chippy called the wigmore.


11.) 28 May 2023 19:51:45
I was up at Birmingham's ground late last year, it's an urban paradise compared to Luton.
Luton is just a massive Poundland.


12.) 28 May 2023 19:55:24
Went to Luton away in the eighties and it was horrible. Nothing has changed,


13.) 28 May 2023 20:53:45
JK23 - ???.


14.) 28 May 2023 20:56:01
Congrats to Luton, ideed. Not sure I have seen them play in the PL since they went down decades ago.


15.) 28 May 2023 20:59:34
TBF Luton needed this and I think they will be a bit like Wimbledon back in the day, so I suspect Brentford West Ham Fulham and the other London based teams will not be looking forward to visiting the Ken, I know we had trouble beating them on that astroturf, could be replacing Everton mind you is Goodison any better than the Ken.


16.) 28 May 2023 21:14:14
Just read an article that suggests that they would not be allowed to play in the Premier League as of now. Due to stadium inadequacies and safety issues, lighting inadequacies and insufficient place and infrastructure for broadcasting equipment required. So they basically have 3 months to bring their stadium up to standard. Or share somebody else's.


17.) 28 May 2023 22:39:29
I think they are going to use MK Don's stadium.


18.) 29 May 2023 11:42:18
Bit rude about Luton and Birmingham when Liverpool is just as bad if not worse in some parts.

I hope it's for at least £40m, or there will be riots on here.

Celtic would be a good move for him, but I can't see them spending £10+m on a goalkeeper (or any player, to be honest), so I don't see how it would be possible.

Maybe straight swap for O'Riley?

Alonso just won Leverkusen's 1st ever league title at the first time of asking and has not lost a game all season - AND it's his first full season managing a senior team. There is absolutely no way you can compare that to someone like Amorim, who is in his 2nd senior management role, has previously won the league with his team, and could bow out with a league and cup double.

Alonso made the right decision for him at the time, and I completely understand why. He also came out and said "I'm staying", whereas Amorim has said "I don't want to discuss it right now".

From a comment I read previously from Ed002, it sounded like he was implying Southampton were looking for £50m either in total or with "achievable" add-ons. Perhaps the disagreement in price relates to the structure of payment and triggers of add-ons, so not quite as straightforward as "we're bidding below the asking price" - although given our history, that wouldn't surprise me either.

I fear a tongue-lashing from Ed002, so apologies if I picked that up wrong!

Rugby Parker

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have not offered anywhere near a figure Southampton consider acceptable.}

I love this! Mean Machine is a great film, I remember going to the cinema to watch it. I'm also a big fan of the remake of The Longest Yard, although I admit I haven't seen the original.

Monk used to be great daytime tele during my baked student days!

I get we want to improve ed, my point was that the transfer market is pretty slow in general at the moment, we're not exactly lagging behind.

Harry, just mentioning players the media have linked to other teams just proves my point, they haven't signed any of them. Who are the 2 world beaters utd have signed?

Man city - haven't signed anyone of note yet.

Arsenal - haven't signed anyone of note yet.

Spurs - signed an 18 year old who may or may not be a starter.

Man utd - haven't signed anyone of note yet.

Chelsea - signed a few players, none of whom improve the starting 11 in my opinion.

Newcastle - signed a back up goalie

Aston villa - potentially signing a replacement for their best midfielder who they had to sell.

Everton - tee hee hee!

I could perhaps understand the furore if we were lagging behind everyone else, but the market is very slow at the moment, probably due to international tournaments and the fact it's only the middle of July.

Dunno if this makes me a "real" fan or not, but regardless of who comes in, I still support the club as much as I did before the window opened!

Rugby Parker

{Ed025's Note - City and Arsenal are not playing catch up though RP, the others are not a threat to the top 3...except possibly Everton mate.. :)

That's a good question sofa. I believe all professional players must have a representative, dunno if that means an agent or just a nominated person, who is technically responsible for negotiating contracts etc. I dunno about youth players, I think they used to not need an agent, but that's probably changed these days considering the number of clubs trading youth players these days.

I could be completely wrong, but that's my understanding of it.

Just to support a fellow Scot, that was in no way a penalty, England played decent football for about 30 1st half minutes and then looked dire again. Ally Mccoist is usually my favourite commentator, but he was turning my stomach last night. I think he took his false teeth out at one point to mask the nonsense he was obviously being well paid to say!

To be fair to Neville (and I never thought I'd say that) he was calling for Trent to be dropped when he was playing in midfield. At half time, he said Trent is the best footballing RB in the country, and England needed to attack, which is why he was calling for him to be brought on for walker. Again, never thought I'd agree with him, but that take is spot on.
