    I hope we sell them. Would be a shame to know what our upper limit of fans is

    Evening...sorry been on a training course Up North today, up until 5.30pm today you have sold 192..... we sold 207. :happy:
    Bad Tuesday night for both teams.... .:dead: However with 10 games left I know where I would rather be!
    Next spike will probably be after monthly payday.

    I know you haven`t got much to be happy about................................................ however Dot Counting gets you through the dark days!!

    Update as of Thursday at 8.45am

    Oxford seats gone now stands at 24,845 - so that means we sold 414 tickets yesterday (strong sales in the evening). Our estimated total allocation is 33,394.

    There are now 92 seats left in Tier 2, 170 left in Tier 1 (2 together in Block 107 currently, otherwise all singles) - and there are 8 Blocks with just a single seat left within this total.

    We have now sold 3054 seats in Tier 3 and additional seats are being progressively released (we are round to Block 506 so far).


    Coventry seats gone now stands at 42,037 out of their total allocation of 45,741. Their sales have slowed right down and they only sold 254 yesterday.

    Overall attendance is therefore currently at least 66,882 (figure doesn't include corporate areas I'm assuming).

    It might help if the club lets people know you need to clear your cache and cookies to view the seat sector if you have already viewed it. Other wise looks like it is sold out.

    Yes but its still amazing considering this is all coming on the back of the worst season in the clubs history and following the worst two league performances. Just imagine how many we could have sold if we had been looking down from the top of the table instead. We probably could have filled the ground on our own!

    Loving these updates. Can I check that you're counting our intial allocation of 39300 up to and including Block 527, with the further 6300 being in 526 downwards?

    Thanks

    Roughly speaking 2737 of your additional 6,300 have sold.....they are released from where your top tier allocation previously stopped onwards so you are sat near like minded people.
    Problem for "dotologists" is that there are random individual seats and "seats in baskets" that sometimes don`t complete....... its all a bit fluid.
    Two weeks & one monthly pay day to go I would think we will hit 28k + yours + corporate/club wembley stuff........ might break the record.

    Get your friends and family some tickets. We want this record. Sales have slowed right down but with more than two weeks to go you'd hope we could sell them. 45k us 33k oxford plus 10k corporate is almost a sell out. Not bad at all.

    41,232 sold as of today so not many left .We have a total of 46,000 would be good to sell the last 4,768.Considering we are going down to league 2 that's a fucking good support.

    Just had a look at the Oxford forum, very surprised how bitter they are that we are taking 15k+ more than them. Not our fault we have more fans. Very strange.

    Can't they just be happy they're gonna score 3/4 goals at wembley and win a cup final of sorts?

    I know it's very weird. I made an account and posted on there about our sales updates to which they moaned at me and said post on a Coventry forum instead. Now they are talking about our sales all the time and they have someone posted on our forum about theirs. They keep saying theyre delighted about us taking more as it gives them more money but it's clearly hurt them somewhat

    Bitter? Not everyone...... there is lots of pish about football these days & money is screwing the game for many of us but at least two proper clubs have made the final.

    I would have been bitter if it was someone tinpot like Luton taking 15k more than us.

    Only downside is that we have been to Wembley a few times of late so the initial "excitement" has waned a bit.

    Someone viewing this forum could think we were just turning up to batter a soon to be relegated team that are £100 million up the swanee, have despised assett stripping owners and couldn`t win a game against themselves...........................................................................................ohh. :happy:

    In consideration of how fast you were selling compared to the little club the difference of 160 is worth noting from the other side of the fence. Its only dots..not worth getting over excited ! lol

    We've really missed a trick here.
    Should have all orchestrated it to buy on Saturday the 1st. :-(

    Frustrating part now is that they pretty much know where the dividing line will be, but are still only releasing blocks bit by bit to both clubs.
    For those who haven`t experienced the top tier you would probably prefer to be at the front of the block rather than the back.
    We currently have people waiting to buy groups at the front of blocks when released...... might as well just chuck them on sale and let them get on with it as its going to look pretty full anyway!

    We aren`t as far as I know? Care to enlighten me?? Think we have moved on a bit from the 80`s when we rearranged the seating plan at Highfield road. :facepalm:

    I had a look on your forum and it seems like a few are concerned about us having a couple of blocks above your fans

    Really pleased with sales so far at the moment.

    Would be really nice if this could be a sell out or really close to one!
