So since Dec 29, we’ve taken well over 9,000 fans to away games. That is unreal support with nearly 1000 miles travelled in that time.

It’s ok mate, you just go ahead and make a figure up if you want, only number I care about from that game is 3 :woot:
It’s just a talking point raised on an away numers thread. If you want to talk about the match, kindly refer to the general match thread.

Fairly self-explanatory, really. :woo:

According so a few websites, the stand does hold 6,200 - but yes, the maximum allocation is 4,700.

Only a 100 paid on the day yesterday, apparently. :dk:
Lots of games where we've taken big numbers, only 100 or fewer have paid on the day. It happens.

Stand holds roughly 6,000, front few rows are cordoned off, everyone in that picture is stood up and theres a huge gap on the right of the stand. 3,600 looks spot on to me.

I think it looks more. This was our end at your place first championship season . 3700+ was the official number given. Bradford seem to have more than we did.

There are no good atmospheres in this country standing or siting, nobody makes a peep at Valley Parade unless they score, regardless of how many they bring and whether they sit or stand. I'd rather stand but if not, never mind but it doesn't help atmosphere that much imo or the atmospheres in this country wouldn't be so crap.
If you do head down to League 2 we’ll make plenty of noise at your place whether winning or not, very rare for us to be quiet away even on really long treks we’ll always sing, although I do agree with you that most away supports are quiet unless winning, didn’t hear a peep out of Mansfield last week until they scored and then silence again 5 mins after.

Great turnout from Luton on Saturday and they seemed a friendly bunch, we also had a coach load of St. Mirren fans as well as the usual attendance from our close neighbours. The SoL has never been so cosmopolitan.

Better than the 5500 Sunderland brought?
Probably, the atmosphere down at Coventry wasn't the best. I'd like to say it was due to the early start but not many of our away games this season have produced a great atmosphere. Or our home games for that matter. Think our away crowd suffers the same issue as our home one, people wanting to be part of the atmosphere rather than wanting to contribute to it.

2,235 tickets shifted for Scunthorpe on Saturday and an allocation of 1,822 for Oxford which we are apparently unlikely to get any more. Gearing up towards March where we have Accrington Stanley, Wycombe and Barnsley away in the space of 7 days which will be an exciting time for my wallet.

Thought this myself last week, thought you were surprisingly quiet despite the large following and scoring almost immediately.

Peterborough have given us a further 900 tickets which takes our final allocation to 2,381. Presumably that’s the side and some of behind the goal?

Looks like it, we were given 1600 in the side stand and were refused more despite selling the initial allocation with a week to go so you've done well there.

It was done a bit all over the shop.

Originally gave us 900 odd, we asked for more and got another 400, asked for more and have been given another 900. Dunno why they didn’t just give us the 1,700 to start with and go from there rather than this whole piece meal approach.

One of our fans tweeted Darragh McAnthony asking him why he couldn’t just give us 3,000, he replied saying if we could sell 3,000 we could have them but looks like we’ve ended up getting just shy of that.

Posh probably sell on sale no return basis, hence if you'd asked for 3k and only sold 2.5k you'd still have to stump up for the other 500
