Leeds only selling 2,000 tickets for our game tonight - woeful following...
Reading is a nightmare trip midweek, not a great one at weekend either.

These sky red button games are killing attendances for most midweek games, especially when weather is like it were last night.

Bolton's official attendance of 13,000+ last night was miles away from real figure, looked 10k at the very most to me.

Just a bit. But you can tell that most of it is simple apathy, you just become numb to the crap and get to the point when you are past caring, you just want it finished. I forgot to ask, is Chansiri (hope I spelt it correctly), still trying to sell?
I don't think he ever was he's just frustrated, does fans forums and gets both barrels and can't spend what he wants to due to FFP, his heart is in the right place as well.

You do realise he was taking the piss, given 2k is the max allocation cos Reading have about 11 spotty teenagers taking up the rest of the stand as club 1871 or summat.

Can't have been many more than 1,700 Stoke at Pride Park tonight. Pretty dismal to be honest considering we've not played them for 12 years and it's 30 odd miles down the A50.

Mind you I wouldn't want to watch that bunch of negative cloggers each week.

Reading's pricing is quality, £15 a ticket I think I read, shame i'm at the boxing in Liverpool on the 30th or else i'd be on that, even if it is a cack trip.

Bolton charging us £5 in early April so could be a decent following there! Considering going myself and staying at the hotel near it!

Bolton is the worst away day in the league and one of the worst in the country. Don’t think I’ve ever got there for a game any earlier than about 1 hour before kickoff.

Never been so want to add to the 92!

Sounds like we may be giving 7k to Leeds (whole cobbold stand) last game of the season to avoid them being in the home areas. Likely to be a sensible move

7k at Ipswich, I remember them days, the summer of 1990.....quite poetic, their potential last game in this division and back then our first one back down here.

Visit the stadium by all means, just don't spend the night on Middlebrook.

We go to WestHoughton or Wheeleys working mens club near Wigan for pre match drinks when playing Bolton.
