    slagheap. I still think you missed my point. Once again..I have no problem with season ticket holders having the privilege of being able to buy a ticket before the rest of us. I'd be only too happy (as would many others) to 'put my money down'. Just tell me where to go! ;-)

    BCFCOK What on Earth are you talking about? Swansea do not have a bigger ticket allocation, both clubs have the same amount to sell, and under your logic should Chelsea have got to the final then your team would have just 480 tickets with the other 60,000 going to the London club. Oh yeah, how awesome that would have been. Let's push for BCFCOK's idea to be used in future!

    As a season ticket holder I deserve a privilege - even if it was just one cup ticket. But I want to pay what I can afford for it and sit where I want so no panic but I know I'd have to queue for that 'privilege'. What I didn't expect was a 12 hour queue and one category of tickets totally sold out! Got there just after 6.30 a.m. and left at almost 6.30 p.m. Now that is ridiculous! bennyhill4 spot on and abertawe - it could only happen at Swansea! As one of the Stewards said 'we've got our act together on the pitch but admin is a shambles'!!

    Who is robgood4? He can't even spell "Tickets". Is he supposed to be a reporter? If so, what a joke.

    Mr20cman I dont think I miss your point at all,in fact your point smacks of envy and jealousy.If you feel so strongly about the Swans may I suggest you put your money down like the rest of us.

    As a Bradford City Fan it strikes me that the similarity between comments between season ticket holders and people who are not have a common theme. But here,s a thought. Bradford is twice as big population wise as Swansea so if we are being democratic Bradford should have twice as many tickets as Swansea so that every body proportionally as a chance of getting their hands on one. So why is it that Swansea have got the bigger ticket allocation? I am so glad you beat Chelsea but you still rely on foreign imports, manager included. The reason i can conclude we are in the final is that your cosseted imports have not come accross honest 4th division warriors who will kick your ass. What happened to Vetch Field? CTID

    You miss my point slagheap. I'm not arguing about whether season ticket holders should get the chance to buy tickets first. I was commenting on the fact that there is zero chance of a season ticket holder missing out..so why the panic? Those of us who have to wait will have genuine reason for relief if and when we are lucky enough to get a ticket. Constant tweets by people who were guaranteed to get two tickets each kind of rubs our noses in it, don't you think?..

    Mr20cman For us to get our GUARANTEED wembley ticket us season ticket holders pay out a very substantial amount of money every season,surely for this commitment we give to the club we should have some reward.

    Makes me laugh all those people Tweeting about how relieved they are to get their GUARANTEED tickets, while the rest of us who haven't got seasons tickets have to wait another week to take our chances with whatever's left ;-)
