Talking about vultures 63

16 of our members who have gone to the majority of home/away games over the last fifteen shocking seasons initially missed out on Stoke away tickets

I found out at the Derby game that two of us have got tickets now, the elation from Gary & I on the coach back home was something to see :-D unsure how many of my Leeds pals may have missed out

A rousing chorus of “Where were you when we were S**t” should be belted out just before KO, the people who’ve snapped up the tickets will be the same people who were adamant they’d never come again when we were losing at home in league 1

Glad to see ER full again Rich but it does make you wonder how fickle football fans are in general :( if we go up the scramble to obtain tickets will be even worse unless you have a season-ticket.

Remember not so long ago when less than 17,000 fans turned up for a night match v Leicester City, yes I know we were rubbish & I have to say it wasn't easy on the eye but what a massive variance !

I enjoyed my trips to the likes of Wycombe, Yeovil, Cheltenham, Carlisle, MK Dons & the rest when we were in League One

I'm absolutely gutted booked hotel too, was going to be the best trip ever. What is the point in my membership if I can't get a ticket.

Unfortunately not Richard, the invitations are from very good friends (treat us like family)

Yes I'm disappointed mate but that's life !

More fans will always turn up when there is more of an expectation of winning or at the very least seeing entertaining football. Attendances in league 1 weren't too bad as fans were expecting us to win, the lower attendances came when we were treading water in the championship. Only gluttons for punishment, Hi 64, continue to spend hard earned money to watch the team play sh*te and lose.

imo its ridiculous that up to 9 tickets can be purchased per member surely under the circumstances 2 tickets per member would be a fairer way.

Totally agree. But since before this season we rarely sold out. Hoping to find a decent Bar in the city to watch the game with all the other fans who have travelled up and not got a ticket.

Now now Weasel :lol:

I would call it dedication :)

Every club has it's hardcore support, the likes of Bury, Crewe, Carlisle, Cheltenham, Northampton & other lower league clubs attract three or four thousand fans every game because supporters love their team come rain or shine. Also it's a afternoon out, a few drinks with the lads & lassies, quality time for dads with their kids watching live football after a mundane week at work.

There have been over 30 thousand at virtually every game this season. Have they been exactly the same people every time? I'm sure that many have attended plenty of games, though not all obviously, and others have attended their own particular cluster of games.

So maligning the full crowd v Norwich is a load of crap.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

It is a ridiculous, a rule that could lead to ticket touts taking advantage of our fans

Yes from here on it should be only two tickets per member :tup:
