    If I can't have a pint in my seat watching the game I'm not interested.

    Overall I think this is good value - I can take my two kids for £25 all in - I'm not sure the crowd will be a big one though with 3 home games in a week, although if we get 6 points from the 2 league games this might encourage a few more to come and see the cup game.
    The more we get to go the more TM can spend on the team so if you really want to see us continue the progress made so far this season you need to get up to the Ricoh on Nov 7th.

    Cant go any cheaper, FA rules that the minimum price is £15. Or at least they used to.

    Thought FC United were charging £10 which is why they were kicking off as they usually charge £9?

    Min price for the early rounds should be £10 & £1 & then down to the clubs to go higher or not.

    Not sure about a stipulated minimum price, I'm sure Arlesley was £10 the other year, but I think both teams have to agree. Perhaps £15 was the compromise.

    Edit found this on the Independent re: FC United.

    Under the rules of the world’s oldest football competition, the minimum adult ticket price for a First Round match must be £10.

    Actually just checked, the minimum price stipulated by the FA is £10.

    Are there bands on in the Jag Hall after, I won't be there if there's not :D

    Decent enough price, I would guess given the position they're in at the moment Northampton wouldn't have been keen on it being lower.

    £15 is a perfectly reasonable price. Got to remember the receipts get shared with Northampton so its in our interest too.

    I agree that it is a decent price. But at Swindon I paid £19 for myself and £2 for my lad. So I could have taken 2 of my kids for £23 for a league game.

    Not going at those prices I won't give a penny to Cardoza!

    but seriously can't make it as wife working and parents not able to babysit on that day.

    Where's their commitment? Are they not aware that this competition incorporates both 'romance' and 'magic'?

    Have you considered putting them into care? How dare they stand in the way of a man and his football!

    I prefer the "get them in just before kick off and kick them out on the final whistle" approach myself.

    Was going to get mine pre game Saturday but reading this thread for the sake of 90p postage ordered mine online, save queueing & the hassle of a broken printer on Saturday.

    I'll stick to my car then, thanks!

    Actually, now you mention it, I do get another benefit for being over 60. I can use the gym at my local sports centre every afternoon for free. I usually go twice a week. That should keep the big black wagon at bay a bit longer!!

    Unbelievably you couldn't buy tickets at the game today.
    I can get mine online but I said I'd get one for my mate and his carer because he had spent several hours on the phone trying.
    Evidently you can't buy disabled tickets online so a trip to the Tesco shop on Monday.
    Anybody see any problems in doing this ?
