    Yes, I'm definitely going for this as well. What stand would you recommend for a first timer? The closer it is the better, but cost is also a concern. So best value for money basically :D

    Both STH122 and N3414 are 50 pounds, which is an affordable option for me, which among the two is better? STH is closer, but not in the middle while the latter is far but in the middle.

    Have a single for Chelsea at home on the 28th - willing to trade for Barcelona at home on the 10th.

    Alternatively happy to just buy the ticket outright too.

    I can't make it to the Barca game on the 10th (only consolation is I'll be in Barcelona! Hoping it won't be a dead rubber). Anyway, if anyone wants to buy it off me and can mail it back before West Ham on the 13th, hola at me...

    I've called up a few times to chance my luck but not having any luck because they're saying it is outbound calls only. Have seen on Twitter that some are saying they have caught the right person in the ticket office when calling but not sure to believe what I read on Twitter.

    Hey guys, I am driving up to Manchester from London for the game tomorrow. Have a couple of my questions as it's my first time doing the drive (usually do train).

    1) Will traffic be very bad from London? I can't leave before 1 pm from Stansted. Hoping that's enough breathing room.

    2) Where should I park? Fine with a 20-30 minute walk.

    Hi,
    I get on a coach from Reigate for every home game.

    The good news for you is that you don't have the M25 or London to contend with at all coming from Stansted. That's one huge unknown out of the equation.
    You are still at the mercy of the M6, as well as the miles upon miles of average speed cameras near Stoke.
    This week is school holidays most areas so this should help the traffic situation.

    Usually on a good run we can do it in 4 hours (and your journey should also be around 4 hours). However, the worst journey we have had was first game of the season v Leicester and we only just made the 8pm K.O. having set off at noon. That was exceptionally bad. You should be fine leaving at 1pm as you will make faster progress in the car than we do in the coach.

    Try and park on the south side of the stadium (cricket ground or somewhere on the Chester Road) as you are closer to the motorway for going south after the match.

    Good luck

    I do the drive every week from Leytonstone mate. Routes are a bit tempremental, but I'd say M1 to M6 is your best bet. Depending on where you are coming from in London, I'd give it 6hrs minimum in case of accidents etc as well as those bastard 50mph zones near Northampton and parts of the M6. I'd also use the M6 toll if you can, makes that stretch a lot easier than otherwise.

    Just noticed you're coming from Stansted, that departure time should be fine, though I'm not sure if you have to go back on yourself to get on the right side of the traffic on the M11.

    In terms of parking, I don't know, as I have a permit at OT, but it's a bit of a free for all in terms of parking generally on match days, and if you're taking the M602 route to get to Salford there are loads of unofficial match day parking attendants who are visible on the road leading up to OT (would probably involve a mid-long walk).

    There are plenty of match day parking within 10min walk of the ground for a small fee, just make sure you get there a bit early.

    And make sure you leave as soon as the final whistle goes and get to the car as fast as you can. Can save you 30-60 minutes if you can beat most of the traffic.

    Hi guys, I thought I'd share my call with the ticket office just now, in case others find it helpful. Apologies if this is already widely known.

    For the Barcelona game tomorrow, where cancellations/returns are being received, there is in effect a third ballot taking place, whereby Members who were unsuccessful in the second official ballot, are receiving emails to let them know that there may be tickets still available.

    In terms of queuing at the ticket office on the day, I was advised that if they are still operating the above policy, then there would be no point. However, the agent did say to call on the day as it is a 'very fluid situation.'!

    If any fellow Reds have a spare single ticket, please do let me know. I will be in Oldham for work and so can meet in Manchester at relatively short notice.

    Thanks.

    Looking for West Ham if anyone has a pair. Many on here that can vouch for me on here, can drive to collect Friday evening if that helps. And I will repay the favour.

    Does anyone know of any transport going from Goodison Park to Lime Street station on Easter Sunday? Don't fancy paying for a taxi there and back.
