We have a new high bidder!
I wasn't answering intending it to be a competition! As I wrote, just being a long-standing STH and doing a lot of the aways (my son has a similar number) since the count started should have quite a number in that region, like Craig.

Got to be honest and say that if Nick Logan has’t got the highest TAPs possible, then that’s just another sign of Benham’s Broken Brentford and there should probably be an independent judicial inquiry into how and why that’s the case 🤓

Just sayin’.

@super J must be up there but he missed his train yesterday so might have surrended his lead!

Does anyone know what the max is?
Wasn't there a period early on when merchandise and refreshments also earned a small rate of TAPs? In theory there was no limit to how many burgers you could buy :) Not wanting to unturn the debate of "TAPs justice" again here but just saying.

Amazing support! Imagine if we follow Wolves’ lead and wipe all loyalty points!

Did they do that? Presumably because nobody was loyal to Wolves?!

As far as I could tell from the pre-match whinging on their board they have and replaced it with “Membership Plus” for those with the highest number of loyalty points which gives them a free hit for six games of their choice to be guaranteed any seat they like in the ground (other than ST ones obvs). Initially they were going to charge a £20 uplift on ordinary membership for that perk.

6258 .
I didn't always buy my own cup tickets so missed out on a lot of points 😥
Very disappointing. Not sure where any of us go after this revelation. Only time and space will heal the hurt.

Thoughts and prayers are with all affected by this shocking admission 🙏🤓

Can only manage 6649
I have seen some dark days, and even darker evenings up north, but I always dreamed that one day we would reach the promised land/league.
Happy days to be a Bee!!!!!
spot on mate , knew 20 plus trips to Oldham would pay off one day :sorted:

Great stuff John, but as you said the other day, a lot of your trips involved 'pay at the gate' even after the introduction of loyalty points. I'm on 6797 since Tuesday night but as I know I've missed a couple of away games in each of the past few seasons, I reckon there must be some people who are over 7000 already.

Don't think I've done 20 Nick (I have sometime swerved it deliberately I must admit).... there have been a mix of mainly bad, but also some good trips to that place. 1970/71 and a 5-1 defeat... 1990/91 in the cup (both bad)... but then a surprise Tuesday night win (Scott Fitzgerald 2) in 2005. All before TAPs of course.

Seeing as we are discussed TAP improvements in another thread my mind was cast back to this one.

Coincidentally it appears I have just joined "the club", Norwich away tripped me over 6000.

If anyone is taking notes I think I've earned 800-850 this season.

Was told that you need to scan the ticket at the turnstiles to get the TAPs...
So that's b*llox then?

Can still get them if you buy a ticket, but then flog it to someone else, who will then scan it at the turnstile, but not get the benefit of the TAPS, which I'm sure is what some people do.
