Ignoring the fact that Stoke was our last away game (which I attended), and that I was just at the Bournemouth match at the weekend, I could have just kept hold of the tickets even if I couldn't go to a match. However, I would rather someone goes than the tickets go to waste.
It's unfortunate that I haven't been able to go to two away matches out of the last three because of a change of circumstances. It's not the norm (no matter what the cynic in you may think).
But thanks for passing comment nonetheless. Anyway, the tickets have now gone.
