Hartlepool tickets taken off the website so it looks like we've sold out both of the rows they allocated us.
Confirmed. Bradford we're chasing your away sell outs total. That's Orient, Salford, Stockport and Hartlepool in the bank with Wimbledon, Mansfield and Harrogate to follow in the next couple of months.

Orient - 3 Dec - might not sell out, if it does, Gillingham the week after most definitely won’t.

The sellouts will continue from there on. Carlisle, Stockport and possibly Walsall - form pending.

Will the home stands have anybody in them if you lose on Saturday and Tuesday? I might have to use my Sunderland supporting friends to use their voices to get me tickets in the empty bits.

There’ll be plenty of empty bits but you won’t get a ticket, they require a blood sacrifice at the ticket office.

Our away end holds c1800 yet Bradford have only sold around 1200, terrible that I thought their away support was supposed to be good?

I'm off to Barrow on Tuesday and having a couple of days slowly travelling to our friends in County Durham for the game at Hartlepool on the Saturday. I can't believe we will be refused entry, we are in our late 60's and haven't been thrown out of a ground for years, Rotherham 1972 (if I remember correctly).

Sounds great that. Where are you staying en route? I'd be tempted by a few days in the Lakes, great time to be going although not sure if it's gonna be raining up there, if not it won't be crazy busy midweek mid to late October.

You have to jump through hoops to get in, people who live in the town have a hard enough task getting in, it’s a cashless stadium, you need a ticket for entry, you need to be registered on the system in order to get a ticket, it’s one ticket per registered person, so if there’s multiple people they all need to be registered individually, if you turn up on a match day the queues are out the door and down the street, total farce.

Haven't booked anything yet, but I thought seeing Barnard Castle would be fun, might even pop up to Hadrian's Wall and have a decent walk. Barrow, you can pay on the day, it's getting into Hartlepool that will be the bugger!

Really, why have they done that? Seems a bit 'over the top' to me. All I want to do is watch my football team in a safe stadium. You are putting me off going, but I will talk to the Mackems again and see if we can sort something out.

It's best you knew in advance, gone are the days at Pools were you could rock up with £20 and expect to walk in, just doesn't happen anymore.

AFAIK theft from turnstile operators and doing things like letting their mates in for free, I can understand their reason for doing it but it still makes for a shitty customer experience.

I would love to see you sell out at Brunton Park.

I think the last time we had to open the Waterworks End was for Everton 6 years ago in the FA cup.

Approx 3,700.

2,000 seats in East Stand and 1,700 on the terrace behind the goal.

So, we won’t be selling out then.
Shame.

Hoping we could possibly get 10,000+ in that game. You should be able to manage the 2,000?

In the last 25 years I think the only clubs to sell out the full allocation are Tottenham, Arsenal, Leeds and Everton.

EDIT: Not Arsenal, terrace was closed that day. It was closed for Tottenham as well.

So that's only Leeds and Everton!

Think we sold out whatever we got in 1997, I was on the terrace
