Quick question for Leicester, Villa or Wolves supporters.

 

Friend of a friend is looking to get themselves to a PL game in November.  They are Warwick based, so those three clubs look to be the best bet.  How easy is it to get tickets for a home game?  Just in general to start off with.

 

(FWIW, as far as fixtures go, Leicester have Chelsea and Watford at home, Villa play Brighton and Wolves have Everton and West Ham.) 

 

It's actually easier to get match tickets at Molineux this season that previously - they have changed the 'loyalty points' system meaning supporters who haven't been to many/any games that season don't have to wait as long before they can purchase tickets online.

 

Once it's open to general sale, it shouldn't be too much of a problem to buy tickets.  I couldn't tell you how far in advance that is though because I'm not in a position to attend at the moment - way too much to do on the new house which takes up all my spare time and money!!

Does it have to be a premier league game? The Ricoh (CBS) arena is only 15 miles away and Cov are playing great football at the minute. Plus they don’t have to go to Leicester, Brum or Wolverhampton.

They're visiting Americans.  They need to be eased in gently...

 

Looks like it is Villa vs Brighton as their first choice, then Wolves vs West Ham.

 

Thanks for all the responses.

I once sat on the train to Euston following a Wolves vs Burnley game and the next table was occupied by American Burnley fans, could it have been them, or do Burnley have a load of American fans?

We do have a fair North American contingent.  Unless you were sat next to the new owners.

 

It won't have been the person I'm asking for.  It is the son of a guy I've known for twenty years via a Boston Bruins mailing list.  He's messaged me saying his son is visiting Warwick Uni for some post-grad work and was looking to catch a game so I thought that I would try to help out.

Roma lost 6-1 to Bodo/Glimt. Good to see Mourinho's career trajectory hasn't improved.

Bit late to the party here. Leics v Chelsea is already sold out. Watford tickets won’t be available on general release until at least 9 November, by which time they’ll probably be sold out to members. Probably be able to get EL tickets for 25th November between Leicester and Legia Warsaw. Pretty difficult getting PL tickets at the KP.

I like a lot of the Athletics stuff but their list of managers who could replace Steve Bruce is some bobbins. Based on Horncastles list of candidates then you'd swear that managing an under-12s side in Italy is more impressive than managing at Premier League or Championship level in England. 

 

I've said it before on here but there's something very odd about the way the British press rush to put foreign coaches on a pedestal for very little reason beyond being foreign. The striking thing when looking at these sort of articles is how much more willing big clubs in other countries are to give chances to coaches from smaller teams.

They do it to foreign players too.  All too often potential superstar young players at english clubs are ignored in favour of people saying they should spend 11 billion pounds of some equally young guy in Germany when the English player would probably do as well given games.

 

In other news, Englishman Mason Mount just scored for Chelsea.
