Charlton game

Recommended Posts

I'm taking the family to London on the weekend for the away game at Charlton. My wife and two kids have said they'd give it at try and watch a Boro game. Does anyone know when the away tickets go on general sale? Or can anyone help out with 4 tickets 🙂

Might be better off seeing if any ST holders on here are not going and using their cards to book early

I remember going to charlton a few years ago under Karanka. I don't think the away end was even half full, so just thought it would be the same this time, considering we aren't exactly flying.

I don't know about the restrictions for tickets but are anyone on here going to the game that can help me out with 4 tickets? I'll happily meet up before the game for the tickets, and wire the money in advance. Otherwise I'll just take my chance on the general sale. There is no info on the website though.

First time I’ve been here in a while.

I’ll be going - if Brentford made general sale Charlton will do too
 

Are the usual sorts getting involved??

Just ordered our tickets for the game. Had completely forgot but thankfully not sold out. Just over 150 tickets left though. 1 pound for U11 is a real bargain. 50 quid for the 4 of us isn't too bad. Looking forward to it now.

Yeah - remember a trip to the Valley a few years back (under Karanka I think) and the away stand had plenty of spare seats. I got a ticket on the day. Think we got a goalless draw that time.

 

On a less serious note...you are a terrible husband and father! Why would you do that to them? 😝

Still, if you're making a weekend of it, there's still shopping & sightseeing etc. I think we can guess how the Boro experience will work out, but hope the rest of the trip is enjoyable.

I was at Charlton game a few years back under AK. Finished 0-0 and yeah there was plenty of room in the away end. Bikey played for Charlton that game and got plenty of abuse "You fat ***, you fat ***". After the game he came to the away end and pulled up his shirt to the amusement of the crowd 😝

My Dad was Boro born but moved down south when he was 18. One of the very first games he took me to was Charlton away and now 20 years later i am returning the favour, Absolutely buzzing for the game since our first together in years!

Question for the londoners out there. We’re two adults and two kids under 11 years. Which travel ticket would be best to get in London? I get that the kids travel for free regardless. 
Would the Oyster Visitor card be best and just pay at every fare, or would a 3 day Travelcard be better with unlimited fares?

We are staying close to Blackfriars station.

I'm not from London but often go there for matches and social events. It depends on how much you intend on using the tube.

For myself it works much better to use my contactless debit card at the gates as it only charges the distance between where you got on and got off (although i'm not sure how this works with children), not only that, its much quicker than having to queue up for a ticket or risk losing your tickets. Just make sure you remember to scan out when leaving otherwise you will be charged the maximum fare.

If you plan on travelling around London quite a bit i would recommend a travel card.

 

EDIT: Here's a link explaining how the contactless system works

https://tfl.gov.uk/fares/how-to-pay-and-where-to-buy-tickets-and-oyster/pay-as-you-go/contactless-and-mobile-pay-as-you-go

 

EDIT 2: It appears that you need the Oyster Visitors Card to get the free/discounted childrens tickets.

Will that be because they didn't get to see the game or because they did get to see the game? 🤔

    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.  
    • As far as I can tell it's the only argument that they can even try to make, and even that's weak AF.
