Why? 

 

They've allocated Wycombe 2k

Do you think that bc they don’t think Wycombe will sell many more bc it’s unlike them to be so tight on tickets. Having said that I imagine Wycombe wouldn’t allocate much to MK

Well IF I get one, and with 720 points I should just be okay, I’ll have to pick it up Friday immediately before driving up there.  No doubt I’ll then spend 4 hours sat in a traffic jam near Leeds again after some twat decides to drive the wrong way down the M1. 😡

Rupert Murdoch and bad drivers in West Yorkshire fuck off and die.

Sunderland looking to sell out.

46k total attending 

And they had the gall to slag us for 33k the other day re fans coming out of the woodwork

We won't know,  but if we had a stadium that could accommodate 50k would we sell out? Well I'd say we could, just think of all those that went to Cardiff (and to some degree Wembley in 2016). I know it's ancient history but we've had 50k in Hillsborough for. Div 3 game.

btw I'm not suggesting we should have or need a 50k stadium. I think 40-45k is the most we need, even if we were in the PL.

Playing MK in semi’s we’d expect our MK resident to be running an alternative ticket office!

Any of our Geordie contingent able to pull a previous buying history out of blue and bagged 500 tickets lol

Huge game Friday packed house at theirs or at least 42K+  and maybe 33.5k at ours - shame we can not fit 2k on bottom of Lep and give 3.3k we can seek in top tier to us.

I would have taken an hefty margin on top of course. WAWAW

Taking the football out of this and looking at this another way for the low allocations.

On a very practical level the games were only confirmed on Saturday and both take place within 10 days. If I recall the reason FA Cup replays are not in the week after, was the police demanded the 10 day window. 

Adding to this there is the potential for volatility at a higher level between fans.

The play offs are a money machine for the EFL, again I believe the money is pooled and split 5 ways - the 4 clubs and the EFL. The cost of policing would come out of that pool.

Note: I've also posted this on the ticket page thread.

Got ours just after 9AM but some weirdness about it.   Was under time pressure so rushing after first set of four went from under me whilst I was adjusting our status to the chosen seats and got an error message at the end.  Start again.  Got second set instead BUT then faced a mandatory choice of tick box options: Post or Print at Home!  Obviously neither applied but tell that to the machine.  Ticket P at H and confirmed, got confirmation screen.  Done!  Afterwards got the usual confirmatory email - all as expected - but noticed it had got attachments: four tickets! 

It's let me print them off as PDFs and they have all the correct personal and seat details as booked BUT the stadium drawing with numbered sections shown is Hillsborough!  The seat details are Sunderland.  We'll still go and ask to collect our tickets as instructed but I do wonder what's going on and if it'll cause a problem.

BTW, does anyone know if only the one who paid is allowed to collect tickets at Hillsborough usually or if any of the four named on the tickets with ID can do it, (usually)?

Is someone else allowed to collect them, EBRA?

Did they need evidence of permission?  In our case it would simply be the fact that one of the tickets was allocated to him and that he's listed in my 'Friends and Family' section.

I never gave it but it got picked up for me - but when same guy said he’ll pick it up for me this time he said he needed permission - I suspect they will have a record of purchases to check

Soon as they said 2000 tickets instead of 2800 I’d struggle.

Apparently the game is being shown in the Wednesday tap, but you have to buy a ticket. Might be a decent 2nd best.

Wednesday Tap at capacity now. So you won’t be going there

I saved myself some money and a day off by changing my plans for the weekend, based on the assumption that it would sell out before 10AM tomorrow.  It’s a consolation to at least be proved right.

MK Dons only giving Wycombe 2k, and sticking them in the upper tier, can be taken as a backhanded compliment to the way we turned it into a home game three weeks ago.
