These type of games we may as well give you 5k, although pretty sure we don't get a say anymore.
We found out from the club supporter liason officer last week that the reason Forest were given 2.7k as opposed to 3.7k was because of trouble in recent years with them - some teams will be given 2.7k, others 3.7k dependant on the deemed potential of trouble happening. Absolutely bizarre given we gave Leeds and Cardiff the full lot last year and I'd think they're more likely to play up than Forest.

Think we'll only give you 2.7k next month as well but I doubt you'll need more?

We won't anywhere near need that.

We have you on a Friday night again at your place.

I saw - no complaints from me, the day against you last year for the Friday game was a cracker.

Coming down for the game? I expect you'll sell out this time given it ain't on Sky.
All depends on work, and where I'm working at. Yeah if we continue our form we will sell out. Can't see there being any problem with us having the full allocation.

Some figures from tonight’s league cup:

Around 1,000-1,100 Bolton at Leeds
645 Blackburn at Carlisle
351 Ipswich at Exeter
1,028 Derby at Oldham
222 Wigan at Rotherham
390 Brentford at Southend
1,021 Brum at Reading
1,966 Villa at Yeovil
Can’t see a figure for Hull at Sheff Utd, looked a few hundred.

622 Morecambe, made more noise than any away fans in the league that I remember last season. Their team is gash too.

Greed just like the majority of owners in this division, even more disgusting when no Premier League clubs are allowed to charge over £30.
The PL gets a grossly elevated amount of TV monies meaning paying supporters are almost peripheral unlike at our level though, if monies were more evenly spread then prices maybe fairer

Millwall charging us £29 on Saturday for one of the least pleasant away trips of the season. Still, chance for some good drinking elsewhere in London away from the shithole that is South Bermondsey.

Can't imagine we'll take more than 1400 or so, especially with there being no trains from Derby this week. We've got a replacement bus service down to East Mids Parkway to kick off the day.
