Wednesday v Leeds (Leeds’ fans ticket free for all)

Recommended Posts

We had a lengthy debate about ticket priority for away matches last week, hence me bringing this up.

 

No idea whether this is a good idea or not but Leeds appear to have an interesting take on it.

 

For most matches their away priority works in a similar way to ours.  For a few matches per season they abandon their priority system and have a free for all where all season ticket holders have the same priority - first come first served.

 

As a result you had the chaotic situation of 4,600 tickets selling out in 30 minutes this morning.

 

Some fans who’ve been to most matches will have missed out.

 

Others, who usually can’t get tickets will have got them.

seems a bit random.

 

Also - bit hoolie element at Leeds so youd think theyd be a bit more careful about distribution

For which game is this?

 

The one against us?

 

If so, I wonder if that scrubber who decked Kirkland will make an appearance?

Agreed. Almost like Leeds are hoping their d1ckheads get tickets for this one.

 

Also, 4600 means they have both tiers. That went well last time on a Friday night...

What could possibly go wrong with this approach I wonder.

 

Find out at what remains of Hillsborough stadium next Friday around 22:00.

He goes to every game home and away, he's been back to Hillsborough since.

Won’t be an issue. Leeds don’t see us as rivals. They will no doubt behave and await their next match with manure to vent.

If they want to demolish the Leppings Lane stand free of charge I'm not going to stop them.

Think it's more 4000 on top, 2000 bottom, 1500 corner.

4600 will probably end up being a 3000/1600 split top/bottom

Well as stupid ideas goes this has to be right up there. 

 

Friday night game, no control over tickets and give the bottom tier. 

 

Do the police learn nothing from previous games? Absolutely insane this.

Weather season ticket holders or not If they really wanted to be at the game theres probably no reason why they couldn't be, just took in our ticket section how many change hands, imagine a club that size it would be 100's every away game.
