The away end has been reduced by 1000 thanks to Leeds and their inability to behave.

They have not been able to behave since I first went to football.  Every  team that creates  for itself a nationwide support seems  to suffer with the same antics

According to Twitter 1100, according to the site <200.

I've found the site far more reliable with real time data. All four of the initial blocks are open so I cannot see where 900 seats are hiding.

First few rows at the front will be closed off I think.

The upper section of one of the blocks was only released today. The other blocks have blue dotted arouns them so by my reckoning we've sold 3300 ish.

We get another 1000 I believe in the week once these have gone. Should sell out.

But what about your tickets?

Seems that a portion of an upper block and now a lower block was held back from sale, so we've sold just over 3200. I'd imagine they'll take the extra 1000.

Any advice on great pubs (real ale type pubs)? Preferably ones that won't be rammed.

Old Nș 7 in the centre looks more than decent.

Maximum was 5600, but after Leeds kicked off it's reduced to 4600.

Agreed. Old No 7 is probably the pick of the pubs in town for ale. If you don't mind a 10 min stroll the Commercial (Summer Lane) is worth a shout. Other than that the Dove by the ground is run by the Old Mill brewery and is away fan friendly - downside being it will be rammed!

Just had to speak to the ticket office and I asked them about Barnsley. We've sold 2800 and our allocation is 6000.

On a positive note maybe if there's loads of empty seats in the away end it might stop the boneheads in our support singing that fecking "empty seats my lord" nonsense.

On second thoughts, it probably won't.

Not disputing the conversation, just that the ticket office are wrong as to the total volume. Sunderland sold 4100 out of a maximum 4600. Last years was 5600, which I think Leeds and Newcastle did, with issues unsurprisingly with an evening kick off involving Leeds.

One of the 3 we didn't sell out last year. Be good to better it.
