Crowds didn't drop under Smith during the poor run in the 2md division.

There was a bit of grumbling around me here and there in L3 and one bloke had a total screaming meltdown near us about 4-4-2 after the 2-2 with Hull but most people whilst wearily resigning themselves to another season in the 2nd tier kept positive I felt despite results.

I think the demand for tickets will cool down once the realities of the PL kick back in.
And when we lose the first ten Deano will get the sack. Once the crowds dwindle it will be easier to get an overpriced pie at half time.The new owners will get fed up and sell the ground to a scrap metal dealers.

I sense your sarcasm here.  Itís just a personal opinion, may be right may be wrong but I canít recall us selling out for any sustained period  in the Ellis or Lerner years before relegation and would be quite surprised if we do once normality kicks back in.

Obviously if we have huge success quickly that will change things.

If you go to the OS, click through to tickets then season tickets to the page where you put yourself into the waiting list, it actually says how many seats are available (assume these are the seats people on the list are in effect queueing up to buy)

Currently says 1,167. This figure is updated as it was 1,175 when I spotted it last night.

Suggests 28,833 sold thus far.
Currently saying 943 available.  So 224 of the first 1,000 on the waiting list have followed up with a purchase.

Fine. But my opinion is i don't understand why anyone would want to put a dampner on the current wave of optimism.

Well people were discussing the long term availability of match day tickets and the merits of extending the stadium.  The comment was made in that context, not just to piss on your optimism.  I can assure you no one will be happier than me if were challenging for top 6 in the next two seasons and selling out every game.  I just think it more likely that once we've settled back in there will be generally tickets available for those who want them.

I honestly hope not, chrisw1. If it does start to happen, for me it'll seem that once more, other clubs are leaving us trailing off the pitch.

Don't you think theres something different about the current set up? Aren't you excited by events happening in B6? We now have extremely wealthy owners. Fantastic backroom team with Purslow & Pitarch. A first team coach (not manager) and his assistants who want to play an attractive swashbuckling style of football. Theres something in the air this time around and "settling  back in" won't cut it.

That number should be a lot higher but the website doesnít work and itís almost impossible to get through to the ticket office.

I reckon there will be a big queue at the ticket office tomorrow.

For the last couple of seasons, people in my area have just passed season cards around if they can't make games* and not asked for money. Only really works if you know people pretty well.

If there's an official re-sale system in place for this season, it'll be interesting to see if that continues. We're in a prime spot behind the dugout, so tickets should be popular online

(* apart from one bloke who only turns up for around half the matches. He never seems to pass his ticket on to anyone)

I am expecting to be in the UK more often but know that there are many times that I wonít. So I thought if I buy a ticket  I can get some money back for the games I miss.

Be interesting to see if there's a limit on the number of games you can resell.
