The club can't win either way.

Allow big away allocations, and get criticised by our and other club's fans for being 'tinpot' and having a big stadium we can't fill ourselves as well as away fans potentially outnumbering home fans.

Limit allocations and the club misses out on much needed revenue, and get criticised by our and other club's fans for not allowing the extra allocation.

I'm in favour of just letting the club sell as many as they can to whoever they want. We have a 30k stadium that barely sees more than 10k most weeks. With the away attendances being large, we get overall attendances and revenue similar to some of the established bigger clubs like Charlton.

Over time, our home support will grow and we will fill this stadium one day, 20-30 years down the line. But until then, the club needs all the help it can to maintain and grow income, and tickets are a considerable part of that.

There is no way on this planet of determining the true allegiance of any random supporter if they don't want you to know. Unless they turn up at the box office wearing colours.


You can minimise it by not selling tickets on the day and requiring a bill with the address they are saying they live at.


Where you live proves nothing about who you support.

If they’re not causing trouble, what’s the problem?[/quote]

There should be no problem, but it grieves me deeply that in football there are some more interested in hating the opposition rather than concentrating on supporting their ( supposedly ) own team.

I wonder whether the potential problem is still bad enough to warrant maintaining segregation.

No it doesn't, but if they are a supporter they should be registered already and I am referring to the casual last minute interest.
