Mid January and only 3 Saturday home matches left this season after Udders this weekend and that's assuming the Newcastle match isn't moved, preparing the fans for Premier League football perhaps?

Great commitment that you come all that way - do you get to most games?

I'd love to Doctor John, but with the air fare for me and Jane coming in at £250, car hire and two nights at the Hotel Leopold in Sheffield the total cost comes in close to £500 !!

Im not complaining, I love visiting Hillsborough...next trip will be the Newcastle game.

Hopefully there'll be a crowd around 12,328 on Sat vs Hudds.

 

I'm a bit concerned about the lack of segregation between the Kop and the South and North, it's ridiculously easy to get from one Stand to another, I'm currently on hold to the SAG as I type, I'm trying to stop this madness and get half of all 3 stands netted off completely.

 

You can't be too careful.

Huddersfield have sold less than 2k.

They are in top 6 play-off position,  only just down the road and a "local"  derby aswell....  I really don't udderstand it?

Their season ticket holders have paid £7 a game, they probably think that's what it should be.:biggrin:

Madness.

 

As pointed out earlier in the thread, they're paying £6 more than we did at theirs earlier in the season...a day their supporters had cheap tickets, too.

Good effort is that. Aren't there any flights that would get you further north, so you have to drive less, or do all flights to the mainland just go to Cornwall? I know you can fly from Newquay to Donny.

They're all whinging about the price and loads "boycotting" because of it.  I pointed out to the ones whinging that we paid £30 when they paid £10.  The response: "Yeah but you got to see a good team".  I pointed to the scoreline and walked off laughing.

 

They just don't have the depth of fan base to sell more than 3k even if the tickets were £2.50.

They did in Dec 2011.

Wow. Hope it's a five nil scintillating victory, you win the half time draw, and you and Jane get picked for the 7 ball kicky thing (if they can find some balls this week).

 

If it's nil one and utter crap, and we hear two people booing, we will cut you some slack.

It's probably more than we'll take to Leeds.
