    Up north on holiday and have convinced 3 others to join me. This is providing we can pay on gate.

    Much appreciated if a fellow sky blue can confirm

    I would take that option rather than risk paying on gate. Can't remember who we played last season but loads turned up to pay on gate and couldn't get it. I reckon as the sun is shining and a decent new signing a few more will end up going.

    Yeh just frustration - Originally said 12pm today so with notice could have sorted. I don't get why they couldn't have sold until close of play and then the police would still know numbers expected. I'm assuming they were expecting a large amount to travel tomorrow?

    Official Twitter account said this morning they would be on sale till 12pm and on the gate tomorrow, I don't know what's prompted such a U-Turn but I'm guessing it was from some tinpot safety group rather than SISU...

    Gutted - I was hoping it was Tim Fisher/SISU so I could go on a well deserved Friday morning rant!

    Sisu out!

    If you ring Grimsby direct anytime today or tomorrow you'll be able to buy an away ticket and pick it up at the away end.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with Hull being at home tomorrow (both share the same police force - Humberside)?

    You wouldn't think this would have anything to do with it, but it wouldn't surprise me..

    Grimsby fan in peace. It is possible to be because Hull are at home but even so (no offence to anyone) why would you need a police presence for hull v burton or Grimsby v Coventry.. If you're desperate to go, book tickets online in the main stand, it's never full and the family based stand

    Isn't that the one Grimsby have just taken off sale or is it different?

    Main stand is always last to sell put, it'll be the upper and lower findus/youngs stand

    Somebody did say earlier that tickets could be organised for the away end via Grimsby, might be worth a try?

    You have the river Humber separating you both, why should it be a concern? Are the police scared for you fans safety from us?
