£32 for us first away at Bolton. Personally not going to bother, worst away day in the league for my money.
Only about 15/20 min on train from Manchester though which helps, everything about the ground itself and around it is absolutely awful though.

Yeah was planning on stopping in Manchester tbh. I'd be surprised if we topped 1k at Bolton. We have QPR away midweek on the 22nd then Swansea on the 25th, QPR probably 1k but Swansea should sell out.

Definitely but it can be a good day if you go via Manchester as Bladesman said.

Chorley is good for boozers too and it's less than 10 minutes on the train.

....that's when the trains on that line are actually fucking running, which is never.

Yeah we were going to head to Northern Quarter again as it was brilliant for City away, but most of the lot we usually go with are at festivals or doing other things that weekend so it'd only be a few of us, will give it a miss

Our 1st away game is now Boro again, midweek this time as its been brought forward 3 weeks cos there on tv. Qpr 1st saturday away game, should sell all 3k if we get it I'd have thought or not far off anyway. I don't even know any more fixtures after that, very little interest at the minute.

Why's that, because of the world cup?

Wonder if we’ll take 500 odd tickets from our away end and flog them as “away hospitality” this season to any of the clubs who are guaranteed to sell out. Did it for Leeds a couple of seasons ago and Man City last season. Easy way of making an extra buck out of the away fans. £100 odd quid for a fry up you could get for a fiver at your local supermarket cafe, throw in parking and a match programme and there’s your “hospitality”.

You're in good hands with Wilder don't see why you couldn't push top six again
2nd half of last season is our level, and not improved at all so far, actually weakened with brooks going. Wilder not the issue but Bottom half for me. Can't see Clarke and sharp getting 30 again either.

I think you were miles better than us just that we had better strikers, if you had Reid and Diedhiou you'd have finished top six with the amount of chances you create.

Brooks was only bit part anyway wasn't he? Henderson's an upgrade probably plus you've got Coutts back. I'd be quietly confident mate.

Possibly yes, about the chances we create, absolutely ridiculous games we should have won last year. He was good when he did play and would have been involved a lot more I think this season. Still time for incomings but as it stands I ain't optimistic and I generally always am.

Fair enough, assume you'd take top 10 and 4 points off Wednesday again then.

I'm not optimistic at all, our average squad is being managed by a shit manager. We'll struggle.

Got 300 more heading there Tuesday, not me mind.
Have you sold out then :lol::lol: bizarre, it's one of the few I've not been too Mansfield, and we've played them 3 times now in the last 6 or 7 years I really don't understand why so many people want to go to them, how can you actually have any interest in the match. I think the last one I went too in this country was Rotherham (new ground opening), lasted about 3 minutes, before that no idea.

We had 1700 at walsall Tuesday night. Shit for us as we normally have 3500-4000 there midweek, or a Saturday. It's one boring friendly though, like most of them. Last one I went to was forest away last season of prem. great day on the piss.
