    I’ve booked onto the trip same day return, spent 3weeks looking at alternatives and even though cheapest flights were Manchester to Bilbao via Dublin , and as based in northwest with additional costs I.e hotel , travelling to from Bilbao and staduim worked out would perhaps only save 20/30 quid ,hope ticket price is kind, anybody travelling to airport from rossendale/hyndburn
    Districts of lancs for this trip more than welcome to share car/costs ,

  • Shahbs

    Obvs booked the cheapest option via TCS

  • Michael

    How many do these **** have out of are 1500 ?

  • tony

    Why is it nothing is being said about the automatic ticket system a private company is useing thus reducing the chance of someone who has a credit for away games in europe. Does this not go against certain principles of people who post on here.

  • James

    Tony, it’s a joke. It’s not going to change though – been like that for years.

  • tony

    Its not going to change unless those who promote change concentrate on utd fans first or am i pissing in the wind, but hey if they dont care why should I.

    Another issue ignored by utd groups wonder why, last post sounded ta ra

  • Jonboy

    What private company ? TCS are not private they have a agreement with the club that’s why u get a ticket if you go wiv em

  • James

    Problem is a lot of united fans use these trips as a way of guaranteeing tickets. So where me and you think its unfair, just as likely the same amount of people couldnt care less. Selfish attitudes.

  • vitty

    Tony – you’ve made this point before.

    It’s inaccurate that the issue is being ignored by United groups.

    Oli cited to you a press release that MUST last issued when the issue last occured in a prominent way (Ajax).

    The release criticised the fact that TCS were able to announce six Ajax trips and effectively charge people £100 for a £50 hotel room.

    Also, I’ve written about it several times:

    Here – http://redsaway.com/2012/12/a-fair-ticket-policy-a-madrid-qa/

    and

    Hi Tony, I am agreed with you on this issue but disagree that fan groups have ‘ignored’ it. I have pasted below part of a MUST release from around the time of the Madrid away game last season which was the last time we put a statement out on it publicly. I’ve also had private correspondence with TCS on all these issues (my last message to them was a fortnight ago) which I am happy to share publicly given they’ve not had he decency to even reply this time. Thanks, Oli

    “Thirdly, the exciting tie with Real Madrid has caused more ticketing issues. The club’s official travel partner, Thomas Cook Sport, have already put five plane loads of tickets on offer to be bought by any member or season ticket holder of Manchester United on a first-come first-served basis. These expensive trips do not give priority to fans with loyalty credits from previous games in the Champions League, unlike the club’s own ticket ballot which will prioritise fans who made the long trips to support United in the group stage games in Cluj, Braga and Istanbul. Thomas Cook and Manchester United have always refused to share information on how many tickets Thomas Cook are entitled to, sometimes leading to bizarre and unfair policies such as members getting a Champions League final ticket for Wembley in 2011 by buying a package, whilst over 20,000 season ticket holders were not even permitted to apply for a ticket via the club. It is time that Manchester United and Thomas Cook agreed to have a coherent and transparent system of allocating tickets, so that Thomas Cook can still fill up their trips but giving priority first to those who have accrued loyalty credits recognised by the club.”

  • shahbs

    James i think its a bit unfair to say fans to use this service have selfish attitudes, do u think im happy to pay that much, bollocks i am, iv get a road trip booked to leverkusen which is going to be half the price of this trip and prob more fun also, Totally agree thou that TCS and the club should have a set amount that can apply for these trips, prob just the one plane load, if its oversubscribed run a internal ballot for those travelling via TCS. Prority should be given to those who have travelled to euro aways and built up credits and we are all on agreement on that.

  • tony

    press release do not do anything except draw attention to those that release it, example for you, we are going to buy united, headline only no action so giving out press releases does nothing. And TCS is a private company who have signed a contract with united and thats the way it is and will stay that way as you Oli already know that just the same as when YOU buy your membership.

    Vitty you sight Ajax as a prominent way, Must wanted as much coverage due to the fact that so called utd groups wanted to set up fans information centre in Ajax now call me and others cynical but MUST are there for themselves as they always quote its on behalf of must members so why release press statements about tickets to away games. Discussion not a verbal attack

  • Oli

    Tony,

    I totally disagree with you.

    What do you want must to do re TCs if not a) draw attention to it amongst reds which by default includes via media b) put pressure directly on TCs and MUfC over the issue.

    Of every issue possible, this one was only one of four press released by MUSt last year. To me that is not the definition of ignoring an issue.

    Plenty of people on this forum have seen the ongoing dialogue that I’ve had with TCS on this issue. However, you want to criticise me for doing that rather than anyone else who, as far as I know, does nothing about it.

    When you refer to me buying a membership, what do you mean?

    I’m not sure why you want to portray people who spend about 15 hours a week on United issues and very occasionally press release some aspect of that as self serving. I’ve never made money from Manchester United, I’ve never put my name on a MUSt press release.

    Oli

  • Oli

    Tony,

    mUST has a democratically elected board and committee. If members not happy with those speaking in their behalf, that committee be would be voted out. To keep that on current topic, I’m not sure many of our members are unhappy with us criticising TCS and making sure fans and the club are aware of the issues while also making clear to TCs that we will continue to undermine them unless they engage on the issue.

    I agree with your point to Vitty discussion is not necessarily a verbal attack but most times you post your intent, tone and objective is very clear. That’s fine, your clearly entitled to your opinions, but you do like to ignore parts of responses that aren’t convenient to your view, which is generally to only post criticisms of MUSt. For example, I’ve been in dialogue with TCS including in the last few weeks discussing the credit issues but that doesn’t fit your goal of undermine my posts, so you don’t draw reference to that and instead focus only on criticising a press release. I also note that you saw the same press release you are not happy with before it was issued and had influence on the content.

    Personally I think it takes all sorts to represent United fans and there isn’t a one stop shop. I’ve not had much at all to do with the singing section but good luck to them for getting off their arses and doing something, I’ve not written books on United or set up a travel company, but good luck to those who do too as it all adds to the red world we live in. I’ve not organised demos and marches either, but when they’ve been good ones, good luck to all who helped and took part. It takes all sorts.

    I really disagree with your view of must as self seeing given how much unpaid work people put in constantly. I don’t know what my self interest is supposed to be at all other than being a lefty who wants united fans to work together to help hold the club to account, but obviously you’re allowed a different opinion. When Duncan left his job to run MUSt full time for 7 years without pay, how was that his self interest? I just disagree with that statement entirely.

    Thanks,

    Oli

    Sorry to bang on Tony but, lastly, the club is a bit of a shambles at present and everyone should stick together not look to be decisive. And at the very least, that should be the fans. Is all bickering and lookin to undermine each other’s fan groups etc just plays right into the hands of the wrong people.

    I hope you understand my right to push back on some of your accusations and criticisms. But I’m a bit over emotional today so will go quiet on this thread now!

  • tony

    Why is it your calling the club i support a shambles

    As for all the above i cant see where i have mentioned most of your comments in this discussion.

  • Oli

    Hi Tony,

    It is the club I support too. I used the word shambles given the recent results, transfer window saga, shift of power within the club hierarchy etc. That is not me talking the club down – these are most likely all temporary issues which I expect to be put right very soon. But I don’t believe fans bickering helps in any way though.

    Interesting times for our fan base. Personally I was horrified at the booing at the final whistle saturday despite the performance, and think we have to get behind team more than ever now. So please don’t take my use of word ’shambles’ as talking the club down – there are just current issues there for all to see and we as fans have to collectively be part of a solution rather than an added problem.

    You and I have these discussions but ultimately policy wise I agree with you on most issues. It is apparent you don’t have much like for the fan groups such as MUST but I do think public back and forths like this don’t offer much constructively. On the TCS issue, there are discussions going on with club and your views are very much being represented given the fact we agree on them. I can see a solution to some of the issues fans don’t like about TCS though needs a slow and softly softly approach which is frustrating but the best way to do it. As I have offered before, happy to send you the communications on it (of which Higgo also has a copy now if that helps you obtain it).

    Oli

  • Higgo

    I do have a copy of the email trail discussing the points raised on here with TCS and there is work going on behind the scenes to try and get the system fairer and not so much of a monopoly for TCS.

  • Kev

    When renewing deal with TCS or seeking a new travel partner the club should not include euro away rights in the deal, they could still provide home packages and away coaches, the deal may suit TCS(or new partner) as would be less money for less rights and im sure they could still fill some flight only deals for popular trips to Madrid, barca etc without being officially in with United in a Euro away sense.
    Basically would united accept a little less on a commercial deal which would be minimal in revenue terms, but would be fairer on fans and a good PR move.?
    Probably wishful thinking but home match packages are the core of TCS deals with clubs!

  • Higgo

    http://www.inthepitch.com/prem_team.php?id=54

    Here’s another ticket agency which has popped up at the top of the Google listings.

    They are advertising tickets for Sunderland away, Real Sociedad away and away games where tickets haven’t even gone on sale yet.

    They have 2 Real Sociedad tickets at £200 each.

    They are listing tickets in United’s away end (and stating how many they have) for games which haven’t even gone on sale to us yet eg. Cardiff.

    Totally out of order. When you see proper fans desperate to get tickets after booking travel, hotels etc and then these lot show up it really pisses me off.

  • Mark@mcnts07

    Just wondering Higgo – is that legal? If those links are forwarded to the club do they take any action?

  • Oli

    It is not illegal in Brazil where that website is based.

    Comes down to United tracing tickets and prosecuting the source rather than this website.

    But most sites like this take orders and then buy the tickets after, rather than actually having a stock of them, so is a hard ask.

    Mad/ unfair I know.

  • Flights, trains and hotels booked then ryanair cancel our return flight,..aresholes

  • Oli

    Stewart, what flight has been cancelled? May help others etc.

  • Barcelona to edinburgh day after game.

  • jollyolly

    Òlly, Your a complete an utter wopper mate and everything that is wrong with TC. First of all if you are regular euro away goer its hard to afford nearly £500 for Donetsk £300 for Sociedad £ 300 for BL thats £1100 for the group stages. I have got all 3 this year for under 500£ all in while a few of my mates who could not not take a week of for Donetsk are doing RS/BL cause it was required with the amount of travelling we had to do and only game they have missed since 07 and your gloating about paying the biggest crooks in the book in TC. Im surprised if you have a memebership/ST with that attitude you complete moron

  • You’re right jolly, to many on here with an opinion about how others go about their business, enjoy yourself mate.
