    Hi all CCFC fans.....

    We've been given an initial 1,800 tickets for the game on the 25th - all sold, another 1,500 have been allocated (after we begged for them) - these will all be sold on Saturday and it looks like 'thats our lot' - with hundreds more Rovers Fans wanting to go to the game.

    Can't see it being a 'Full House' - so why no more tickets.......?..... very poor Business Acumen if you ask me ?

    They'll let you pay on the gate.
    Don't panic we have 26000 seats for you to fill.

    I wouldn't bother wasting your money mate, this game is sure to be abandoned due to protests

    I that's the weekend Sheff U weekend, be it our game on the Friday night (which we will surely lose) or the following day when other teams pick up enough points to drag the safety mark over the horizon.

    Careful mate, that'll be us next season. Glass houses and all that.

    No idea why you would only be allocated that, think our away end can hold 8k

    Although the bin dipping gypo's who own our ground are now in charge of security so probably can't handle any more fans as they insist on searching everyone except women

    Hope your allowed more be nice to have a bit of atmosphere in the ground for a change

    What, our owners, poor business acumen?

    Why that's an outrage - in just a few moments the thousands of SISU apologists who populate this forum will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger. Or something like that. :)

    Enjoy the game, as I'm sure you will.

    Away end is 6,000. You could potentially have more Brizzels than Covs in the Wasps Rugby Club owned Ricoh Arena. This could be the day that............

    Bristol Rovers moved into a rugby club's stadium, bought it out when the egg chasers were in difficulty then they left it all to Rovers. They are living a backwards us.

    If you and a couple of mates want to sit in the home end please feel free. It'd be great to double the attendance of the row I'm on.

    Btw when I say the row I'm on I don't just mean in the one block, I mean in the entire home section of the stadium.

    You can have 6K, there's no reason they can't let you have that many. More than that, despite the ground being about a quarter full, is a problem as our councils Safety Advisory Group are completely incompetent, in fact they might not let you have all 6K in case there's less than half a mile between the home and away fans.

    I think by the time we play them we'll all fit in the away end they can have the rest and I want one of the sofas

    Be prepared for a full body cavity search outside
    The stewards have been ordered to make life as difficult as possible to the remaining few supporters that go

    Okay so is it just me that read this post as a sly dig?
    This is what I just read:
    Hi, Brizzle Fan in peace but........... why is your shitty, mickey mouse club not giving us more allocation when there is clearly enough room. They obviously aren't using the room the your tiny support!
    If you really want to know why, then why don't you contact.them directly?
    It is after all, them who made the decision not to give you any more! Not us!
    Is that alright my lover?

    **disclaimer** I am half way through a 12 hour weekend night shift and I'm very tired so my judgement may be off slightly! So if I've read that wrong I apologise!

    Perfect stage for mass protests falls in our lap, almost a gift from the gods..........
    But no, far better to protest at games where no one will see, no one will hear, and no one will care.

    I think the FL will care if a game gets abandoned and that would most certainly make news headlines. I agree however that a pitch protest would not make the news unless it leads to a game being abandoned.

    My post was not meant to wind up anyone at all - just don't understand why CCFC have not given us more tickets - 4,300 now sold and no chance of anymore, which seems strange...that's all.....

    Main reason is its a 'new ground' for us...and also.... not too far to travel, last decent away game this season, were doing ok with an outside chance of the play offs and we see Cov as a 'big' club

    I will be honest I haven't looked at the table from 17th upwards in months so I'd be lying to say I know which position you guys are in!
    Hopefully you'll take the complimentary 3 points on offer and we'll help you on your way!

    Come and join us just don't sit in singers corner( under the scoreboard ) as you have your ticket checked ever 5 minutes by the gestapo. As for any trouble the shit has been kicked out of us by SISU enjoy.

    4300 is some effort, surely the biggest away support at the Ricoh since we've been in league 1?
