The atmosphere was dreadful last season. It's impossible to make noise in that away end, it's too spread out along the length of the pitch. Not helped by the performance on the pitch as we didn't muster a shot.

Our display was rubbish last season but the atmosphere was cracking.  Its a pity Wolves don't see reason.  One WM derby has been ruined by outside forces, don't lets have another one put to sleep.

They can sell tickets to their own supporters so they will. That's hardly not seeing reason.

it won't sell out.  the only reason why the Boro game  sold out was due to severely discounted tickets.

You don't know for certain it won't sell out and how many of the ten thousand empty seats last season should we have seen reason and given them?

I've no problem whatsoever with giving away fans more tickets and still think it was poor that we didn't find a way to accommodate more Brighton fans.

Wolves won't sell out and should give us more tickets. If it looks like we are unlikely to fill Villa Park when they visit, we should give them more tickets.

The only exception I would make is twats like Man U, Liverpool and Chelsea fans as we shouldn't oblige glory-hunters. I prefer empty seats to those dickheads.

I actually think they will sell it out. They are a promotion favourite and it's a local derby.

What's their stadium capacity with the new stand? It will be 25k + no problem.

Last season was 27, 200 and that was with both clubs in mid table nowhere land and Wolves having Lambert inflicted on them.

Their fans seem pretty confident they will sell out. If they do then we can't complain about the ticket allocation. To be fair when they come here we'll have about 10,000 empty seats and they'll only receive 2700 tickets. I'm sure they could sell 4000+ if they're still doing well, although I remember them only bringing about 2000 for a Premier League game when they were struggling.

That's good for them. Half their loyal fan base that.

They were getting 20k + in league one.

Much bigger than better fanbase than WBA and SHA combined.

Football club in having a massive decline in their attendances in the 80s shock (winky).

Molineux in the mid 80s reminds me of what the 100 Club must have been like when the Sex Pistols played there. If everyone who reckons they were there was actually there, it would have filled the Maracana.

No different to the amount of people that claim they did the Seven Sisters walk that time or were at THAT Southampton game. And no, I didn't do either of them.
