    No I'll settle for beating you to promotion inside the last week of the season and winning a cup and finishing 3rd best in the country....

    Sold out in 1995 against Bolton at the Old Wembley, easily over 40,000 there.

    Great day, that.

    Wish I grew up as a Bradford or Huddersfield fan where they may aswell print their season tickets on the back of a cereal box. So cheap.

    I love that. And then your team plays better in front of a crowd that are up for it. At QPR, we are charging £600 a season and then the manager/players/owners wonder why our fans are moody as fuck and we only sold out once this season.

    Heard that all the play-offs teams have an agreement in place that no more than 2k away tickets will be sold? Is this true?

    Yep seems to be the plan, we were told Brighton would only offer us 2K last season so reciprocal allocation was placed, not that they needed it, Fulham won't want the away end rammed with 5/6K so can see their point of view.

    Fulham away at 5.30 on a Saturday, playoff games don't come any better than that. Bit of a rush for 20.55 though

    Jumping ahead slighty, but doubt I would get a ticket for Fulham (A) if that was the case. 2,000 is less than our usual allocation in the league.

    Fulham capping makes no sense though, as they won't sell out the home end yet alone the neutral end so it will still be full of away fans. Unless they actually close the rest of the stand.

    We might get close if we are still in the tie and at home 2nd leg

    Doesn't seem to be a big thing no more for some clubs. 15k at Bradford last night lowest of the season 12k at millwall. We got some poor crowds too when we've been in them in league one, derby and hull last year I don't think we're full. Personally can't see it being full at any of the 4 this season either in the championship.

    A Bradford fan mentioned elsewhere that it was a truer reflection of their crowds, reckons the cheap STs sees folks buy em and miss a few games so despite the 18K average it was never like that inside the stadium.

    Huddersfield will sell out the home leg in the main, not sure on our sales but going well at present and getting asked for IDs as it's not a free for all.

    You probably will just about sell out, 15 years of pure shite makes people desperate for a bit of success. How many is a sell out are you still blocking seats of between your own fans?

    Ask me another. Depends how the wind blows and SAG. Sunday should give an indication if they've let us have more.

    They allowed us to split the lower tier so you might be ok.

    Pretty sure we'll sell out especially if the 2nd leg is at home. First leg at home to Reading with a Sunday noon kick off, maybe not.

    Huddersfield is apparently the lowest earning town in the UK, and I'm sure Bradford's not far behind. Finding £200 in less than a month is not spare change.

    We should sell out, as it'll pull in a few thousand extra fans.

    Only been about 2-3k fans off selling out a few home games this season, so no reason why we couldn't get that many extra for a game of this importance, unless we are already 5-0 down after the first leg.

    Like many Reading fans, I hope so, think we would do better playing at home first given our home record, but I just can't see it happening. We would have to get worse results than both Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield, whilst having the easiest (on paper) fixture.
