    Cheers.
    Didn’t see it in time and nothing there now but will keep looking.
    Thanks for pointing it out - makes me hopeful something will turn up in next couple of days.

    Those blocks behind the dugouts always seem to have tickets released on matchdays. I snagged one at lunchtime and managed to arrive at Wembley just as Eriksen scored.

    Block was half empty and the remainder were mostly tourists though; sat near to a middle aged couple who spent an hour taking selfies then buggered off with about a quarter of the match remaining; presumably to do some shopping at the Outlet.

    I managed to nab a ticket this afternoon. Block 119 - nowhere near where I usually go but hopefully won’t be too full of tourists.
    My printer has decided to stop working today so am hoping the ticket office at Wembley will be able to help out tomorrow. Unless anyone knows whether the Wembley turnstiles can scan a barcode from a phone?

    Just had a look and currently another ticket showing in Block 119 too if anyone looking.

    Re printing your ticket if you're really stuck I'd be more than happy to print it for you

    I think we'd know if that was possible. Especially as they impress on us the importance of printing our tickets beforehand. So best work on the assumption it's not possible - and resolve to get there extra early.;)

    I know it’s ‘only’ the League Cup. I know it’s on a Tuesday evening. But our 51k-capacity semi final has now gone to General sale (restricted general sale, presumably). People must be really hating Wembley.

    Didn't realise assumed it was sold out. Taking the wife to her first game, managed to bag 2 x club wembley for £50. Bargain really for such a high profile game. Given I'm only a member and probably do 4/5 games a season this might realistically be the only semi final I can go to for the next 10-20 years.

    ST holder Ive been to every game at Wembley, Away at MK etc etc
    Out of our 14 that go we are down to 4 on average most games
    I think i have Jan left in me and then i may start cherry picking games which i never thought id say

    Each week the atmosphere becomes 2x as bad with the vacating people filled by plastics
    Ended up in 2-3 "incidents" this season getting away fans out of home end, didnt happen once last year

    Stewards are making more of an effort to get people sitting which is what's killed the atmosphere these last few games, the 'park lane, east lower' section used to be ok when everyone was standing every game

    Long standing ST holder who joined up with our group for the Cardiff fixture had previously only been to one game this season. Resents the extra cost and dislikes the hassle getting to Wembley. Preferred WHL because he met up with mates there. Plus dislikes the Wembley atmosphere, so has been getting refunds for games he missed.

    However he now seems happier coming with a group so he is joining up with us again for the United game. Gets a refund on his usual seat so he can come and sit with us which is great.

    More of the Half and Half lot, complain to the Stewards, force people to sit, meaning more ST holders get pee'd off and don't go meaning more space for half and half.

    I've only missed the Bournemouth game at home, and went up to MK for the Carabou Cup game, and barring the Inter game in the CL, I've sat in the same seat as I had last year. I've seen a few of the people who sat in the same area last year, but they are picking and choosing the games this year and a large number of friends who I've met up with before/after games are also doing the same.

    I've certainly noticed a lot more families attending matches this year, popcorn and pick 'n' mix sales are more than likely up this year, I think that this is great for the future support and growth of the club but ultimately the atmosphere for matches won't be the same with more under 10's attending.

    I'm surprised that the Carabao Cup SF with prices at £25 for all areas of the ground and 51k restricted capacity, I'm surprised that sales reached (restricted) General Sale. I believed that United was restricted to 51k too, but when looking at the tickets remaining the upper tiers seem to be available in blocks that they haven't this year, so perhaps there is a potential full allocation for that match?

    That's the one big positive for Wembley. As non-ST holders our family and friends found it anything from difficult to impossible to get enough seats together at WHL, especially for the big games but Wembley's extra capacity has meant more of us going to many more games. Our group now includes up to eight kids aged between 7 and 13, most of whom are new fans.

    Not sure I understand your comment about kid's effect on the atmosphere, our lot are brilliantly noisy and imv add far more to the atmosphere than some of the miserable buggers surrounding us. Don't forget they'll turn into adult fans soon enough as well.

    Just something I’ve noticed at Wembley that the general atmosphere is much flatter on the games that tend to have a larger family crowd, a few which stand out are AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup, and more recently Burnley and Wolves although perhaps the performances in the 2 latter matches didn’t help. There have been some matches with a great atmosphere at Wembley but this season it has been noticeably lacking for a variety of reasons, and this includes matches against the bigger teams too.

    I’m not saying it isn’t a good thing younger fans are attending and definitely a bonus for families and friends to all be able to sit together.

    I thought that one of the best atmospheres at a “home” game this season was the match at MK Dons, even though it was full of families.

    Went along with a couple of mates who rarely get to attend games nowadays due to their growing broods but the cheap tickets meant they got to bring their kids along and we all felt more at home there than Wembley, as that compactness of the stadium was reminiscent of good old WHL.

    Also helped that there aren’t many tourists looking to visit Dons Stadium, unlike Wembley in recent weeks which has been riddled with day trippers who clearly have absolutely zero interest in football and are merely wanting to take some selfies inside a world famous landmark.

    I was really looking forward to attending the semi-final as thought that would lure many of the season ticket holders back but judging by the thousands of seats which went on general sale yesterday it’s going to be awash with holidaymakers again.

    For anyone with a previous purchase history there are tickets available in the Mixed Zone at Craven Cottage next to the away fans.
    £60 a pop though!

    Booked mine in there, I think they’re also classified as restricted view too

    The ones further back are restricted view (and £2 cheaper). I had those seats first then noticed that they had opened up seats in section P4,without having to be so far back, so phoned them up and got them changed (had to send back the original tickets first).
