Players always have had complimentary tickets!! I would imagine it would have irritated the hell out of a player if he thought you got a ticket instead of his wife and children!!I am a trust member again but I cancelled membership a while back when we played Liverpool in the cup, I was trust member but I couldn't get a ticket however the players all got 4 tickets each for family members. I know this because at that time I knew one of the players who has now left.
Really irritated me
