  1. I think we can safely say that there is a clear lack of transparency from the club regarding the sale of these tickets. It does make you wonder how many of the 2630 ticket allocation do not actually go on sale to season ticket holders? A fair few I would think but unlikely that we'll ever know.
  2. Is that stand (lateral - east side) classed as the main stand? I have assumed that the stand on the west side (preferencia/tribuna) was the main stand?
  3. You really do come across as being as boring as Arthur from On the Buses like your profile picture suggests. Please say hello to Olive for me!
  4. I would snap your hand off right now for that scenario as it would mean that we are still in the tie with a chance of going through either in extra-time or on penalties!
  5. I imagine that crisp packet means how do you know people are guaranteed their tickets at 175+, 170+ and 165+?
  6. Glad you got there in the end. Seems like very limited availability of tickets in all the home areas now.
  7. Don't know if this will help but as previously posted, this is what I did (and I can assure you I'm not well up with techno knowledge!): As per advice from Costock_Fox I downloaded the Rocket VPN android app on my phone. I closed any browser tabs down then went on the Rocket VPN app and my set my location as France. Then opened up my Chrome browser while still connected via France on Rocket. Went on the Atletico website using Chrome then onto the buy tickets section and selected the closest two seats (nearly next to each other) at 102 € each. I used my own name and email address but I put my country as Spain on the Atletico website and used my Madrid hotel postcode and phone no. The transaction went straight through using my UK bank card (Barclays Visa debit) without any problem. Email received straight away with e-tickets attached. Was surprised how it worked so easily but maybe I was lucky. Good luck and hope it works for you. Limited ticket availability now though at the cheaper prices.
  8. When we went there in 1997 the majority congregated in the Plaza Mayor which I think is the main square in Madrid. Don't think they had fanzones 20 years ago but there was plenty of options for bars in and around the Plaza Mayor so I imagine it will be similar.
  9. Yes you are correct. 3 buses a day from the airport into Murcia but none after the time we arrive. I was shocked when I realised how far Murcia was from the airport and the limited transport options available but had already booked the flights! Anyway at least the 60 Euros we will have to spend on the taxi into Murcia will be offset by not having to book accommodation for the Tuesday night as we will be travelling overnight on the coach from Murcia to Madrid arriving Wednesday morning. We will follow the City over land and sea!
  10. Visa debit card (Barclays). On the Atletico website I used my own name and email address but I put my country as Spain and used my hotel postcode and phone no.
  11. Thanks to you and others on here for passing on the relevant info. I didn't really know what I was doing but took your advice and downloaded Rocket VPN set my location as France and ordered two tickets (nearly next to each other) at 102 € each. Transaction went straight through using my UK bank card without any problem. Email received straight away with e-tickets attached! Didn't think it would work but was surprised how easy it actually was. We're on our way, we're on our way.....
  12. Bit of a long shot but if anyone is on the same outbound flight please let me know if you would like to share a taxi from Murcia airport (MJV) to Murcia city bus station which is approx 50km from the airport and the taxi will cost approx 60 Euros total. Two of us are on a flight from Luton at 17.40 arriving at Murcia at 21.25 on Tue 11th. We have an overnight bus booked to Madrid from Murcia city bus station at midnight arriving in Madrid early morning on Wed 12th. No buses from the airport to Murcia city at that time of night so taxi is the only option. Would help to keep the cost down slightly if anyone else might be doing the same.
  13. They are 3 words that don't belong together.
  14. I take it you are on the wind up? We have played this season with the same back four that won us the League last season so they are still heroes in my eyes. Admittedly their form has dropped this season but they now seem to have upped their game. However, I agree with you that Kasper is a top class keeper there should be no doubt from anyone about that.
  15. Love this and after all the top quality videos that possiblygeorge has produced for us on here, I think we owe it to him to get this song going when playing against the 3 English CL flops. Would also like to hear Embarrassment by Madness playing over the stadium tannoy before the game!
