Saw prices for the final range from £24 to £60 which i don't think is any more than our previous three visits. Kind of assumed they'd be up in the £50 to >£100 bracket by now so was quite surpised.

Someone who I work with paid £390 to go to the FA Cup final. Just very very silly money.

I'm hoping that "someone" wasn't a "friend"  Mr Orange? Wink

But yeah, it is silly money. Take a look a F1 baselines too. Then coorporate  Eek But no one "in" business is really paying those prices Wink

if Swindon got there, and that was the only ticket I could get, I'd do it

It's an interesting one. Clearly Liverpool get to finals and things regularly and Swindon are unlikely to get to ever get to the final so given supply and demand I assume the prices Liverpool fans have to pay are massively inflated?

I'd have to give it a fair bit of thought, but it's hypothetical anyway so enjoy the extra £390 Batch!

I thought the only advantage of losing to Vale was not having to fork out Wembley prices!

I assume that £390 is either club Wembley, or unofficial channels. Fa cup final prices for to tier were 145 (still very pricey)

the former next door neighbour is paying not much less than that to go to they Forest playoff final. No chance of getting official allocation so gine for unofficial channels

This isn't really funny in the normal sense, but I couldn't think where else to put it. I bet you don't get stories like this in the Advertiser.... https://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/20158037.huddersfield-man-employed-northern-fallen-stock-dalton-pleaded-guilty-illegally-killing-cow/

I'm about 90 miles away and the only good thing about last season's visit was being able to buy Lebanese wine at Booths in Ulverston. If the weather's better, I might go again to rid myself of the horrors, but we'll have to see.

See you next season!

Made me have the slightest bit of grit or something in my eye, and gave me good reason to have some hope for an unselfish humanity:
