I’d think so.

 

Although last night’s win might tempt a few more out.  As it will when we turn over Swansea.

Anyone know if you can collect the tickets at Millwall's ground? Website is only says collection without specifying where and I live in London.

Any uncollected tickets from SWFC are always sent down with the supporters coaches to be collected on the night.

Speaking to  a Policeman apparently clubs are allowed to make requests regarding their home fixtures like 'no big fixtures over Christmas' and in this case Wednesday to visit Millwall not to be on a weekend 

 

This seems a bit odd, don't think there's any real history of trouble between us down there. Maybe the odd spat but they'll fight with anybody!  Strange that they'd insist on us being midweek but they've had or have weekend home games this season against Leeds, pigs, Sunderland, Cardiff and Villa... 

 

Shame really,  I love my London awaydays but midweek ones aren't possible for me.

The football league have said recently with regards to these sort of games (the ones where the 2 teams aren't really close to each other geographically), they tend to put them midweek & accept the attendances might not be great, so to keep the attendances as high as possible for the Saturday ones such as villa, derby, barnsley, leeds, birmingham, forest, preston etc etc 

 

I would predict that's what he means

they probably had to trade the Wednesday game for a bigger local rivalry on a weekend.

that makes no sense - for Millwall youve described putting geographically seperate teams on weeknights so that other games can be saturday - and then described geographically seperate teams that would be a saturday.

 

surely the FL should be saying - teams that are far apart SHOULD be on a weekend and nearby teams should be on a weeknight...

We've only played them on a weekend once or twice since they moved stadia and I believe one of those times we took a lot down and so I heard at the time we 'gave it to em' so maybe that is one of the reasons behind this.

No I think you've missed my point.

 

You are sacrificing the midweek attendances by playing the likes of Brentford, Millwall, QPR, Bristol City etc at night because if them games were on Saturday the attendances wouldn't be any good anyway.. however if we played a villa, leeds, derby, forest etc on a Tuesday then the attendances would always be smaller than if it was on a Saturday.

 

Plus midweek games tend to be cheaper anyway, so that's good for the fans who struggle to afford Cat A prices, if they're local to the ground they will be happy to go to midweek games at a lower cost

 

It's not just opinion it's fact that this method improves attendances throughout the season, yes you are relying on the hardcore fans to keep this method going but it works.

The simek game wednesday took a lot down & there was some bother, some of the younger lads I used to go to games with who were all handy said it was a good OCS turnout that day, not sure it has any impact on why it's a tuesday game now though

err no - you've just used MY explanation back to me.

 

play far off teams on a weekend.

play nearby teams on a weeknight

We were kept behind in the walkway "cage" until all home fans had dispersed. Then the police escorted us all the way to King's Cross, which was a problem as I live in South London. I managed to sneak through the cordon at London Bridge to get home.

 

So whilst I didn't see any trouble that day, maybe they want the game on a midweek just so they can keep their police costs down as fewer fans will attend.

Always seem to get Millwall on a Tuesday /Wednesday night. Great for London Owls crap for the rest of us.

 

Usually take 1200/1500

 

Sheffield Wednesday's last 5 league followings at The Den:

 

2014/15: 1,001 (Tuesday)

2013/14: 1,049 (Tuesday)

2012/13: 1,028 (Tuesday)

2002/03: 727 (Saturday)

2001/02: 1,112 (Saturday)

You can collect tickets at the ticket office - attached to Barry Kitchener Stand.

 

You can also pay on the day; there is a ticket booth by away turnstiles.

We have played West Ham, Charlton, Palace, Leeds, Birmingham City, Cardiff City, QPR, Burnley, Bristol City and Portsmouth plenty of times at 3pm on a Saturday.

 

All of those would be far higher risk games than Sheffield Wednesday. In fact Sheffield United are a far higher risk game - as they often do bring 'organised' hooligans. 

 

I imagine it is just one of those things.

 

Annoying for me too - as I used to live in Sheffield & would love to go watch us at Hillsborough on a Saturday & then go out and about in town again.

What he is saying is that Millwall want to play QPR, Fulham and Brentford on Saturdays - as this will see sell-outs from both clubs involved. If held on a Tuesday the gate may be down by 3,000 odd. 

 

If we played Sheffield Wednesday the difference in crowd from a Saturday to a Tuesday would be about 1,500 give or take. 

 

Same with you lot. You want to play big games on a Saturday. If you play little old us on a Saturday or Tuesday hardly makes much difference to the expected crowd.
