    Get a life. And some perspective. You haven't had a season ticket in the hopes of getting a CL Final ticket.

    From his tone, I'm guessing he's on 187 (Lockdown).

    I wave 189 and got one for me and my mate who I think has a similar amount. There are a few left as I added 5 to my basket for other people in my network but I couldn’t buy them.

    Hope the Thomas Cook flight comes through, I guess I must have gained a couple of extra points for all those horrible schleps to Wembley as I can never get an away ticket. 11 years of being a ST holder and when I saw the first cut off point I didn’t think it would happen, feeling incredibly lucky at the mo.

    That is nice, but regardless I reckon 30,000 people would just be swarming onto the trains/trams and piling through in an unstoppable surge of testosterone, sweat and spittle, no ticket inspector is going to stand in the way

    From what I’ve observed Liverpool fans expect this in every away match they go to.

    They probably need to add an explanation for Liverpool fans.

    EasyJet's chief executive, Johan Lundgren, has defended his airline's high ticket prices to fly to Madrid for the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool on 1 June.

    Football fans complained to BBC Radio 5 live that flights around that date cost £1,000 instead of £250 normally.

    But Mr Lundgren said the price was higher than average because there had been an "enormous" surge in demand.

    "That is actually how the system works," he said.

    Mr Lundgren said 42 million people had flown with the airline over the winter season, with 65% of them paying £50 or less.

    "The whole pricing picture is very dynamic," he said, adding that at peak booking times, EasyJet could fill a plane in six seconds.

    "That's how quickly this goes and this is how the system reacts."

    Mr Lundgren added: "I can understand if people think that the prices are high on this occasion, because it is higher than the average.

    "But there's no doubt that this was an occasion where the prices went very high because the demand was enormous."

    He maintained that in comparison with other airlines, EasyJet was still offering lower prices, despite the huge increase.

    What are the options?
    If you want to fly from Liverpool to Madrid on 31 May, it will cost you £750 one-way. There are no flights available on the day of the match itself, while return flights on 2 and 3 June are sold out.

    For Spurs fans, EasyJet flights from London Gatwick to Madrid are sold out on 1 June, but seats are still available the day before, at prices ranging from £350 to £750.

    All return flights are sold out on 2 June, but evening flights are still available on 3 June, with prices starting at £510.

    Seats on early morning flights from London Luton to Madrid on 1 June are selling at £750. Returns on 2 June are sold out, but you could come back on 3 June for £550.

    Other airlines are, of course, available. A typical Gatwick-to-Madrid economy fare on British Airways on the morning of 1 June will set you back £709, but that price drops to just £46 for an evening flight - which would get you in too late to see the match.

    Mr Lundgren's comments came after EasyJet reported a loss of £275m in the six months to the end of March, compared with a £68m loss in the same period a year earlier.

    The airline said cost per seat had gone up 3.9% due to fuel price increases and the impact of currency movements, while revenue per seat had fallen by 6.3% to £50.71.

    Easyjet also said had it suffered from "the impact of drones at Gatwick in December", which it said had cost it £10m.

    In April, EasyJet had warned about "weak" summer sales amid Brexit uncertainty.

    In its latest results, the carrier said revenue per seat in the second half of the year would be slightly lower.

    "This is not helped by the ongoing negative impact of Brexit-related market uncertainty as well as a wider macroeconomic slowdown in Europe," it said

    If I were to guess, I'd say half the required amount.

    :(

    Will have to see if any tickets become available via other routes. Whatever happens I've got a few nights holiday in Spain with the family with the possibility of a day or 2 in Madrid...
