Perhaps I am being a little unfair. A young person like you probably wouldn't understand that for older people not in the best of health standing in the cold and pissing down rain for three hours is very unpleasant. Some might think you heartless, but not me.

Precisely. So perhaps 90 minutes plus say 15 minutes for a half-time cuppa and 10 minutes to cover injury times, giving a standing time of 2 hours 5 minutes should be the max allowable for standing in a ticket queue.

Queuing for tickets happens at all levels of the game, especially for Cup tickets, from Premier League clubs, Serie A, Championship, Bundesliga etc etc etc It’s not solely a ‘Newport County’ problem.
Most others are at clubs that have their own ticketing systems too unlike us that rely on the WRU’s..

That’s not to say that our system isn’t great and it certainly needs upgrading. Hopefully, depending on cost, the club will be able to invest in our own ticketing system but we don’t seem to have too many ticket buying issues with our ‘bread and butter’ sales of League 2 tickets.

Worst case scenario as usual Stan.

In our unpredictable climate, fans could be standing in a mild spell of weather. Who knows?

Honestly think we should have gone a fiver higher let's make as much as we can

We should really be pushing merchandise as well why not have a stall when these tickets are on sale we got full time staff and injured players

Agree with you, especially about the merchandising. Given the shortage in the shop, are we able to get the manufactures to churn out more plus Man City commemorative stuff, given the time restraints?

Hundreds of Everton fans queued and still missed the first half v Lincoln recently because of a ticketing glitch.

Fair enough. But had we had a fit for purpose ticketing system trust members and season ticket holders wouldn't have had to queue whatever the weather.

Today I will be driving my car. Despite never having had an accident I will nonetheless prepare for the worst case scenario and wear a seatbelt.

Silly me.

Three big home FA Cup matches and three times we've sold out the ground (including the additional seating for Man City) at prices acceptable to the opposition and our supporters.
The club have clearly got those aspects of big game sorted and yes, as the title says, well done to the Board for that.
Now time to look at the aspects that are not quite as good.
