Good that he can help some of the needy communities,----btw,---I'm fairly sure I read ---that when Tim Rice was asked how he became a SAFC supporter---he said he heard the name Sunderland when he was a boy and liked the name so much he became a fan and followed the Club,---cheers.

I realise that there are plenty of fans in the same predicament but it's worth trying, if you don't ask you don't get. Is there anyone on here that has a season card for this season (2018/19) that know they can't go down to Wembley and therefore won't be needing it? Just desperately trying to find someone with a customer number so i can add them to my friends network on my account so that my mate can get his seat next to mine in phase 1. I'm only after one as I've got a 18/19 season card anyway, just trying to sort my mate out, cheers.

Yeah managed to get a ticket mate, waited till phase 2 started and managed to get 2 together, with a decent view as well. Perhaps fans will be given another chance to get tickets as it looks like Portsmouth are struggling to sell their full allocation, perhaps the EFL will offer them to us. Lets hope all those fans that rushed out to purchase Walsall tickets actually turn up on Saturday, cheers.

Portsmouth can't sell there's but they've just been given more! I can't figure out why we haven't been given them.

Yeah I read this,---can't understand how they are allocated more tickets,--when they can't sell the first lot,----think we could sell a few thousand more,---strange.
