Two years ago, I and three friends bought tickets for all the games at Wembley for Euro 96. We received confirmation on 16 June 1994 and were told the best seats available would automatically be allocated.
Two years later, we find ourselves tucked away in the corner, getting closer to the pitch with every game, while other friends who bought similarly priced tickets for the same games in the last few weeks and months enjoy the view from vastly superior seats.
Being at Wembley for the Scotland and Holland games have been unforgettable experiences, but I still cannot help feeling - and not for the first time as a football fan - a little ripped off.

Is it not an honour to represent Britain in the Atlanta Olympics and even more of an honour to captain the British team? Maybe the selectors should look to Roger Black to lead the side and suggest to Linford Christie to take up advertising.
