Leeds at Derby have only been given 2K allocation this Saturday tea time. Any reason Derby lads on here? (not been reported elsewhere)
Surprised to hear that. We always give 3.1k if the away team request it.

Maybe the police have decided, as it's a 5.30 kick off, they don't want Leeds fans drinking all afternoon and getting more lairy than normal.

Or it could be something to do with the major works at Derby Station. Virtually no trains in or out for several weeks over summer. Having everyone turn up on a coach or by car might prove difficult to police.

Or maybe we've just decided to limit away fans to reduce the influence they might have. Quite a few clubs (hello Nottingham!) seem to offer less than they used to. Fulham in the play offs only gave us 2k, yet in the league we had in excess of 3k tickets.

Truth be told, I don't know.

That is because away tickets were capped at 2k for all the away teams taking part in the play offs.

Blades had sold 988 pre game awaiting on official figure.

I am keeping my own records this season but not for on here so someone else can talk the mantle.

You can just about make it down on the Sunday for kick off via train can't you? I'm swerving it.

Lots of southern based Owls too.
Get into Brentford for 14:18, cutting it fine if there are any delays. Have to just drink on the train, booked later train coming home so should get a few pints round the ground. Wouldn't have normally bothered with it being a Sunday but I'm off work the week after so might as well make most of it.
