Well, Reading at home.

I think we'll bottle it - but it would be massive should we see these off!

17,000 sold in 6 hours - VP will be sold out tomorrow.

I can't see Reading selling out, so we'll be on four sides of the ground.

Reading never travel in numbers and I don't think a trip to Bradford will persuade many.

It is a FA cup quarter final though so you never know...

Cmon Bradford!! You can do it!!! The fact that you are scheduled to play us 3 days afterr the semi final is one reason I want you to win, my dislike for plastic hurrah henry Reading is another.

Awful stitch up by BT Sport to make this a 12:45. Especially with a Birmingham derby at 17:30!

How could your ticket office have messed up so bad? And now they are claiming that all Season Ticket holders will be able to get tickets when there are barely any tickets left. Club issuing apology but fans furious, quite rightly if fans who go every week can't get tickets for the biggest game of the season.

We'll sell out fine I think now (already sold the allocation you didn't think would sell out?). Sold the remaining 500 tickets of our initial allocation within 15 minutes this morning. Just waiting on Bradford to send us the final 1600 and with the demand that is still there we should now sell out.

Got to fancy Bradford here.

Reading always strike me as a bit of a poncey side so hopefully Bradford can get the early goal and grind out the win.

It was the same procedure as the Sunderland game - it seemed to work fine for everyone then - so why change it?
I don't think it's as bad as everyone is making out - I think the vast majority have got a ticket and are just bleating on about it because it's all our fans are good at - slating the board whenever possible.

Valley Parade is just too small for us - what can I say! :D

Were also in the fa cup quater final (youth cup) and have been drawn away at Man City. Already beaten 3 cat 1 academy's in Bolton, Fulham and Arsenal.

The game at City will probably be played at the new Minihad (academy stadium) next week. We also have a game at Rochdale next week but I expect we will probably take more fans to the Youth cup game.

The future looks bright :)

Bradford made it cheap seats again to sell out (£15 adults) and let Season ticket holders buy unlimited amounts so lots of floating leeds fans etc will be there.

Reading sold their initial 2700 and will sell the rest of their allocation.

The ticketing has been a fiasco. People are buying 50 at a time then selling them on for £20, £30+ each. Maybe there's some reasoning behind it but I don't understand it.

We would have sold out at £20 or £25 and there won't be many Leeds floaters there, they don't give a shit and we have enough of our own floaters dusting their Wembley flags off wanting tickets.

The club seem to have made amends after the initial ticket fiasco. The remaining 3,500 have been taken up by season ticket holders, and holders only.

Interestingly, their even openly the A block in the Main (of which hasn't been open since the Prem days) to try and accommodate more fans without tickets. Should see the attendance creap up to around 24,400.

Have Reading sold out yet?

As good as.A few tickets left.
So where in Bradford is a decent pub for a drink before the game?

The Queens outside the Interchange for those arriving by train.

In the town centre, head toward Centenary Square, where there's a Lloyds Bar.

Nearer to the ground there's Bradford Arms on Manningham Lane - of which is a mass shithole.

If you like your real ales, head for Fighting Cock on Prestone Street. It's a fair distance from the ground, but a mere £5 taxi to the ground.

Everywhere else will be full of City.

Avoid Lumb Lane - Barracks Tavern and Haighies Bar.
