I was hugely critical of fans who missed the Pompey home game, and being honest I still believe they let the club down, but I can see why we may struggle to sell out for Wembley.
Oooooooohhhhhh....we were poor in the second half against Portsmouth so I'm going to throw my toys out of the pram and not go this time. Shite.It wouldn’t. Charlton fans fall outta bed and on to the tube. We’ve got 500 mile round trip. Not surprising fans are looking after their money after that second half display at Wembley. Our fans are fantastic
It’s not straight forward though mate. Forgetting the fact the club is still losing 4m a year, arranging a large number of buses at short notice is a nightmare. The only way they could do it is by paying ALS and the branches money to let people go free.Given the graft the fans put in with the seats etc., it would be nice if the owners laid on a bit of free travel for those fans going there and back for the match only.
Can't believe they don't pickup at X£1500 per coach with it being so late on 45 on average on each coach as there would need to be a couple of stewards, So £600,000 to transport 18000 fans. You would then have the arguments as to where the coaches should pick up and why the same can't be done for those on a train.
I actually think the club has moved in the right direction with the ticketing policy. Going forward, and once the new ticketmaster system is up and running, I can see membership cards becoming the norm.If Phase 2 was purchase history it would be sold out now. The UK membership thing is farce (they can't have sold many of them) - as is 6 tickets per ST holder.
They Did that for Semi final down Man Utd aswell,payed the Branches busses aswell as putting free buses on .but had alot more time to organise thatIt’s not straight forward though mate.

Being honest, I wouldn’t use a bus anyway - nor will a lot of our support
