Did Millwall bring many? The game at our place would be a Saturday, if it’s 1745 KO I wouldn’t even expect the 2,600 odd to make general sale.
About 700. Our fans dont do playoff games, and the negativity going into the game will be embarrassing despite completely overachieving all season. We might catch Leeds yet anyway and you might not even get top 6 so bit early for this talk.

Looks like we might not shift all tickets for Norwich, still had 700 left Friday when they went on sale to all season ticket holders and there's still some left this morning now they've gone on general sale.

Would be an outstanding following if you sold 2k, you'll probably have to return what's left , most teams do unless your club is willing to pay for them all.

Looks like we'll have a couple of hundred less at Hillsborough than we did at Bramall Lane. Understandable given the ticket prices and a working day following it I suppose, I'm still torn on going.

Bristol City have sold 820 tickets for Monday's visit to Hillsborough.

I know our tickets are expensive but with still a lot to play for I'd expect twice as many at least.

Big weekend ahead for Leeds & Sheff Utd. Hoping that our 8.33pm Kings cross train back may be celebratory but the fatalist in me says we are still likely to make a pigs ear of it all.

Any good pubs to visit near the station that will be open at that time of the morning? Remember drinking around Cumberland Basin a few years ago, might be nice to sink a pint of natch if the weather is decent.
If you're into ale then Kings Street will be paradise for you and is a 15 minute walk. If not then I wouldn't drink around the station, there's a spoons outside where most away fans from the train head but there's so much more to Bristol than a generic spoons.

Best bet for an away fan is to get a taxi from TM to and get dropped off around Hotwells which is right by the cumberland basin, lots of the pubs claim they don't take away fans but as long as you're not in a shirt or rowdy you'll be fine. Nova Scotia, Rose of Denmark, Merchant Arms and The Mardyke are the pick of them. I'd head there.

What about if he’s after knocking a few heads together and booting a few people in the ankles?

About 2500 tickets sold for Bristol City, so it looks like being a sell out, surprised Bristol City has not sold more to Wednesday on Monday, as it's a bank Holiday, is it on sky t.v.? If not then that's a poor gate for a massive game for Bristol City. Hope Wednesday turn them over, as I think Bristol city are in pole position to finish in the top 6, meaning us DCFC, will miss out, but I must admit Bristol city have been in great form lately, and have had another great season.

Reading have sold 1,500 for Friday :ffs:
Reading never travel well, but that's still more then your taking to Wednesday on Monday, yes I know Wednesday is exspensive, and further to travel, but you lot are charging us 33 pound a ticket, is that what you are charging for Reading, also Derby charge to much for away fans, I am part of the 20 is plenty group, to many teams in the championship charge over 30 pound a ticket, ourselves, Wednesday, Sheffield United, Villa, Forest, Norwich, Bristol City, Leeds and others, I wish all clubs could agree a price cap at 20 pound.

20s plenty is great in theory but clubs at this level rely on gate income much more than the league above, would dropping a tenner off the gate price really increase numbers that much?

I tend to not worry about that much if I'm doing an away day, it's expensive as it is, fans should be lobbying more against costs of rail travel than tickets to be honest.

PL clubs can afford capped tickets due to enormous TV deals whilst the rest of us pick up the scraps.
