    to manage

    - We were lucky to get tickets for the concert as we've been told it was booked up but we managed get the last two...

    Now, the question is: why isn't "manage" followed by to before get?
    Is it a grammar mistake or is it possible to use the verb "manage" without to?

    Es. I managed to bring her purse back.

    It's probably a misprint.
