    Away teams get just under 1000 tickets for the South stand.

    Ground only holds just under 7k I think. The new stand debacle took away some of the away allocation

    Before they built the new stand they would sell away tickets on that side as well as behind the goal.
    Don't know what effect the new stand has had so I'll trust what Monners says
    The away stand behind the goal is not very high and doesn't give a very good view, at least that's my opinion as I don't like being at pitch level.

    I can check with friends who are Cobblers fans, but that's how it has been since the new stand nonsense. By the way, Cardoza still isn't very popular!

    They never sell out so wouldn't be surprised.

    More than one expected - good. Perhaps some in the "new" East stand too

    It'll bring back some odd memories, for those in attendance. I dare someone to start chanting: "We're coming home, we're coming home, we're coming...City's coming home" in the away end, just for a giggle. Show Timmy we have a sense of humour regarding one of the blackest times of the club's history. :-)

    Better ask him first him first. He's a tad older now and put on a few pounds, he might not be quite so keen.

    didn't realise they were on sale, just got mine. Good job I saw this thread.

    Some people say this forum is full of tossers going round in circles with the same arguments over and over again but it does have it's uses!

    Be interesting how they police this. Suspect they will stop fan from going into town from th train station, and will they let fans gather on the hill?

    Pretty easy to police the station. Should be interesting if you do get to Wetherspoons though as a lot of their fools drink in there
