    Couldn't agree more I know at least ten who have bought them by paying over the odds Good luck for getting one for your lad but try not paying more than face value Only encourages them Loads going for stupid prices on line at both ends of the ground

    Where it went tits up IMO is after the first tranche. ST holders and certain "members" were allowed 1 ticket each. No more. That was right and proper. When they went on general sale, those who already had a ticket should NOT have been allowed to buy another one. Everybody should have had to buy their own ticket using their own fan ID. Not, as was the case, being able to buy up to 10 if you had that many valid fan IDs. I realise some might want to sit together but IMO naking sure allocation of tickets is fair then 1 per ID should have been the way.

    I think that’s spot on MA. Villa seem to have done it more fairly than us...seems to depend, to a large extent, on how often a person has been this season with them.

    Personally I obviously wanted to go but recognise that my ‘attendance record’ this season wouldn’t - for a variety of reasons - have put me at the front of the queue even if it had been done fairly.
    What is wrong, imo, is for those who’ve barely been since Wembley 2007 to somehow acquire tickets over regulars (not me) who happen not to be able to afford a season ticket.

    Villa did ST holders first then something like fans with over 5 home games, then 3 and then 1. My nephew had been to 2 home games and 4 away. He knew he wasn't going to get a ticket so he went down the "clandestine" route using business connections to get a seat in the Villa end.

    I contacted a number of ex players I am in touch with, both Derby and other clubs, but even they could not get any themselves.

    Most replied, but the only one that took the hump was Lee Carsley

    I haven't got a ticket and didn't want one until all the main lot there got theres, its only fair that the one's who go to ALL the games get their tickets, then the next are the one's who go to most home games, then 5+ home games etc

    It makes my blood boil when you read about a disabled lad who's been to all the games this season and was told he can't go esp when there's wa*kers out there getting a ticket who have never been to a Derby match in their life, and get one because they were a fu**ing suit, only to ask £800 for it ffs. Why don't they give 45,000 each to both sets of fans? instead of this 35,000 nonsense and the rest going to corporate scum?

    I know 2 season ticket holders who have gone on holiday, who have given their tickets to two people
    One last match was QPR at Wembley and the other one has never been.

    MA agree about the one ticket per ID but assuming all 21,500 season ticket holders bought one each we wouldn't sell out would we

    From the original 36K tickets, 24K went to ST holders, home and away members etc and they were all allowed 1 ticket each. That left 12K on general sale. Anybody with a valid fan ID could go on and order up to 10 tickets provided you had 10 valid fan IDs. I understand why, it's to help groups of friends sit together. Unfortunately some folk borrowed numbers from fans who can't or weren't going and there will be some at Wembley who haven't been to a DCFC game since Wembley 2014 or even ever.

    Today we had an extra allocation of 2000 and everybody with an ID could phone/login and buy TWO. Stupidity. Even on Sunday with 12K up for sale there were over 31K in the online queue at one point. Today there were something like 10K people in the queue at one point.

    Everybody 1 ticket. Once you have one your fan ID becomes ineligible for more tickets for that game. That is IMO fair. The way it has been handled is ridiculous.

    Managed to get two, or someone did on my behalf because I could be nowhere near a computer today.
    Agree with DCFCA about the unfairness of those who haven’t been since our last trip to Wembley getting tickets ahead of relative regulars.
    What I found most annoying was Chelsea fans who found a way on the basis that they’re Lampard/Morris fans...then saying ‘we’re all Derby fans now’...just wrong.
    The other surprising thing is...the seats that were made available today are better than the ones I nearly got on Sunday...expected just back row left overs. How does that happen?
