I've never moaned about the Boro ticket office before..

but I'm going to now.

I booked a season card for my little fella (his first one) after a match in April and noticed when i got home that the woman behind the counter had put the wrong name on the receipt.

I rung up a few days later and was reassured that the correct name was on the system regardless of what was on the receipt.

His season card turned up yesterday and sure enough it had the wrong name on it.

His first season ticket and it hasn't even got his name on it.

I know they will sort it out and reissue the card but it is so annoying.

Anyway, moan over, Come on Boro!

No, Humpty. I don't think that was the name on the card.

they really did my napper in for the UEFA Final, I didnt whinge about it back then but at the time all season ticket holders had to fill in an application or something. I took mine to the stadium and handed it over at the booth to the left of the club shop. I realised I had done something wrong, went back, and asked to amend it, the person pointed at a small pile and said they were the incorrect ones and they had to stay there, the flash before my eyes went back to Ayresome, full, empty, 10 men went to mow, years of travelling to away games from London base, after buying tickets from where ever without any care whatsoever if it was being recorded or not,1996 replica shirts, 1997 boom town ra ras, and my anger stayed inside, I walked away and bit my tounge. Month or so later I was laying on the grass outside the stadium in Eindhoven, watching families of Boro shirted get out of brand new black Range Rovers clutching tickets, and since then , I go, sometimes give my correct postcode, sometimes let my mate give his, just cannot be bothered with them, the 11 players and the Manager is all Im there for, and to see a win to brighten up the smile on the fans

Even worse, someone on flickr might have posted the card with the right name online before you got it...

Ref Eindhoven , the stadium they picked the play the final was far to small for a final -
not the clubs fault , but agree they should have distributed the tickets better .[:(]

Finny I was really chilled, sucking grass looking up at the stadium, a guy did offer me a ticket, but it was only a single and I was with our lass, plus he wanted 90 quid, so we just walked about during the match, got blathered.

Ive missed 7 games in 45 yrs and didn't get one. One of the wonderful players who I pay to watch and was on about 20,000 a week took great delight in relieving me of 500 for two.

We all know the stadium was not big enough..

But the thread is about the ticket office. I have to agree the way the ticket allocation was handled was a sham.

We had a bus of 50 people. No one got a ticket. WTF

In the local pub only 1 person I know got one.

I think the staff in the ticket office made sure groups of people friends/family got the tickets. This is after the club had taken the tickets they wanted. Leaving very few tickets for the rest of us.

But now we have very few season ticket holders we will not have this problem again.. I hope.

We had 5 season tickets between us and got four final tickets and we knew no one at the club.

Bought the fifth on Ebay as it happened got it from Basle from Basle

must say that I knew nobody at the club and I was one of the 'S or T' holders to get a ticket so some 'normal' applicants did get lucky for eindhoven, although I know a lot didn't.

I only got sent my ticket five days before going though so the only travel option left was the overnight coach. Maybe those in the know were able to book well in advance...?

Standards, that is possibly the biggest over-reaction and completely irrelevant rant to any post I've seen on this board in some time.

Ticket office always was, always is and always will be, small time.

Thats MFC.

As for Eindhoven, my black market ticket had "Bellarus FA" on it. I dont blame MFC for that - I blame Uefa suits.

I got a couple of ticket for Eindhoven via the UEFA lottery which opened just after the Roma home game at the start of March that year, didnt aactually think I would need it mind.

I know a few lads that got a ticket via the UEFA lottery.

If you applied for a UEFA Cup final ticket via the online lottery the day , hour and minute it opened there would have been a reasonable chance you would have got a ticket.

As it also happened we also got some tickets via the club as well and had too mnny in the end and gave a couple away [:D][^]
