Trying to book tickets for MK and Charlton games. Do you have to give names and e-mail addresses for the tickets booked, or can I put them all down under my name? if so, what about if some haven't got e-mail addresses?

I don’t think it’s any different to when you book theatre tickets. You get them in one name. That means you either print them off and give each person a ticket or get them all on your phone. Once they’re on your phone as a document I presume you could forward the tickets to others but I haven’t tried that. The club advises that when you download a ticket to your phone to save it on an e-reader app like Adobe. I hadn’t got Adobe Acrobat Reader on my phone so I downloaded that first and then it’s easy to save the ticket to that. It means it’s easy to get to the ticket by just opening the app rather than having to go to the effort of going to the ticketing site and finding the ticket when you need to show it at the turnstile.

I saved both mine and my son's season ticket to my phone and just scan them at the gate when we get there. There's no indication that it needs to be personalised. It seems provided the QR code scans, you'll be let in.

I found the downloading and storing of the ticket on my phone as a bit clunky, compared to other sporting and music events I've been to where it's easy just to add it to you're Apple or Google wallet and use it from there along with debit and credit cards and the like. However, once I downloaded it via the pdf option and stored it in a slightly clunky, place on my iPhone in "files", it's fairly readily and easily accessible. My dad uses a pdf print off which works equally well.

Just to add, after being ridiculously busy since the start of summer. Things are finally easing up, coupled with the wife and kids at the hop garden on Saturday for Ollie Murrs (I wonder if he’s got a tribute act for the factory?).
. I have gone online, changed my password, ordered, paid for and downloaded my ticket for MK.

Fucking have it!

I'm thinking I'm gonna be able to get to the game on Saturday (first since West Ham) so bumper crowd if this is anything to go by!
It will be interesting to see. Lincoln was disappointing but Morecambe was shocking. A one off or an indication of our new core support.

MK and Wigan will help us form a view. Charlton will be a spike as its a Derby.

So, was the Lincoln crowd actually 4.6k (low) or 5.8k (decent) as reported by a lot of online media?

The fact Lincoln had I believe about 1k away fans, and the pics of the RE showed it pretty full, I thought the 5.8k figure was nearer the mark.

Reported as 4.8K on here with 600 lincoln so gills crowd was approx 4.2K. Dropping by approx 500 for the Morecambe game.

After two years (approx) without live football I thought that was poor.

That said there are valid reasons for why people might stay away. My hunch is that about 1000 people have just walked away from gills over the last decade.

MK and Wigan gates will give us a better idea.
