Sorry you were disappointed then matt...

joe - it's been a gradual tail off in terms of demand for United tickets. Probably over the last 10 years. Certainly from about 92-02 if I couldn't go to a game I'd have a queue of people willing to take my season ticket off me for that game. Since around 2002 it's been harder and harder to get rid of spares. Now I wouldn't even bother trying to sell tickets on unless it's the derby or against liverpool.

The rareity of United tickets has pretty much always been a bit of a myth though. If you really wanted one you could generally get one and not necessarily a case of for any price either (at least for the 30 odd years I've been going). Although maybe that's being local. I guess a one-off visitor would have struggled back in the 90s and early 00s.

thanks for the messages guys! appreciate it alot!

i will be joining the united membership, maybe it will be easier that way, i would love to see the next derby match against city in april! would be a dream to see that live in old trafford. i will def try to get my hands on tickets first, and plan my trip around it haha, that's my main focus. i think its harder because im doing this overseas
