Think it makes sense to give us the full away allocation, at least the majority of Leeds fans will all be in the same area of the ground, much better than small pockets all over. Perhaps Ipswich police are having second thoughts because of the glowing reports by police officers in charge at B'ham and Preston with regard to our supporters behaviour in our last 2 away games.

Looking as though they are increasing our allocation from 1900 to 5000

It also makes sense as Ipswich no longer have anything to play for so it makes sense for them to get the money.

Good news. I feared this could potentially be another Bournemouth situation.

Agree, think that was a worry for many at Ipswich. Still think they'll be more than the 5000 going though.

As long our regulars who have followed our club through thick & thin obtain tickets as oppose to some Johnny come lately's I don't mind. Should make for a great atmosphere.....party time hopefully !

Just realised not only it is a bank holiday weekend it is also the Guineas meeting at Newmarket so just checked my travel plan. Avoid the A14 like a plague, looking to leave East Yorks at 6am Saturday morning.

Glad to see Ipswich see sense.

Lets hope for a trouble free weekend.

Oooppps. No reason why they can't do the same again though.

Hopefully get two tickets on Wednesday, travel homework done and goes as follows
Coach from Newport to Liverpool Street leaves at 04.55 am
Arriving at 07.50
Breakfast in London
Train from London to Ipswich leaves at 9.30 am and arrives at Ipswich at 10.45 am
Train home leaves Ipswich at 17.05 pm and arrives at Newport at 21.30 pm , if we get tickets would be great to possibly meet up with any MOT members making the trip, here’s to 3 points tomorrow ⚽️👍

Just a thought Newport, have you got the 'National Rail' app? It's brilliant and will give you all live trains on that particular day. Also if there are any hold ups and bus transfers. The rail network between Ipswich and London quite often do maintenance on the Liverpool St to Ipswich line, shuffling punters on to buses. Just a thought. It may mean you leaving Londen earlier and breakfast in Ipswich instead of London :duno:

Thanks Whiteswan will look into that, breakfast would be a lot cheaper and more enjoyable with Leeds supporters! First things first though and fingers crossed we can get tickets 👍
