I want to go for sure but seeing as they have made it an away tracker game I've got no chance as things stand :-( I've got nowhere near the required number of away credits required unfortunately. Stupid thing is Blues could give far more tickets than this as they always have empty spaces in their section behind that goal !!

St Andrews is one of few championship grounds where there are 1000's of empty seats when Leeds come to town.

You may still had a chance Gurj if you'd attended six of the following eight away games which are not too far for you to travel living in the middle of the country :

Bolton, Forest, Sheff Wed, Cardiff, Bristol C, Leicester, Wolves & Barnsley

Unfortunately due to family commitments I couldnt attend any of the early season games and then unfortuantely you struggle to get the necessary number of away credits. To be honest, I dont blame the way Leeds sell the tickets - the people who actually go to most games get rewarded and thats absolutely right - I am more disappointed in Birmingham City's stupid stance on away tickets. 2,500 is a pitiful allocation when you consider the whole top tier of The Railway end is empty and two thirds of the Blues tickets in that lower tier of that stand is also empty, as shown last night v Wolves. They could easily give us 3,500-4000, which would mean members such as I who are unable to get to most away games, can still have a chance.

Anyway, rant over. I will probably try for the Blues end.

Brum reduced our allocation a few seasons back Gurj, because the constant damage caused to toilets etc by some of our fans, Wolves reduced it by 400 this season because of the same thing, and Barnsley by 2000, more clubs are doing the same. Our idiots are as much if not more to blame than the clubs mate.

That's the problem if you miss a few aways Gurj. I doubt there are many supporters from other clubs experience similar problems as their volume of support isn't as strong

Is seems crazy football clubs turn customers & revenue away, much of it is down to police/safety reasons of course !

From a selfish point of view & this doesn't apply to you mate but I quite enjoy smaller allocations as it tends to deter much of the idiot brigade who watch Leeds

Just hinted on that problem in my last post

I can't believe some of the things I witness from our yob element & we are not talking about a minority. I despair tbh !

Yeah, I can see what you mean there Leon. The bigger allocations do tend to bring out some real troublemaker/hooligan types.

The concourses at away games are more or less a no go area for me these days.

Smoked out by the flares constantly going off
Beer chucked everywhere
Fans swinging off ceiling bars/stanchions
Toilets a mass of smoke with hoards of smokers in there
Fans peeing in the sinks

It's akin to a rough council estate :x
