    Will this definitely be on the 25th 3pm? Or can it still be changed? Looking at booking train tickets.

    I think they've chosen the fixtures for tv coverage so it's not likely to be moved

    That's what I thought but with it being a derby with a different vibe to it I wondered if the police might want it to be moved?

    It will probably be confirmed in a couple of days if you dont want to risk booking the train

    Should be a good friendly atmosphere I can't see WMP wanting it moved other than perhaps bringing the kick off forward to 2pm to avoid fans coming out of the ground in darkness. Cov in Kop and Tilton, Blues in Gil Merrick and Main Stand I'm hearing

    Seems sensible. Suspect they'll outnumber us.

    That'll be so weird. Think it'll be a good atmosphere and a good laugh.

    Think I might come up to St. Andrews for the first time, I live down south so I’ve only been to a few away games this year but want to come to a couple of “home” games this season

    That will only give them about 12k. We won't be a million miles off that if there is cheap tickets.

    10 quid a ticket and I think we will edge towards 10k.

    More likely 15 quid season ticket holders, 20 quid non ST holders and very cheap prices for kids (fiver or maybe a quid)

    Gil Merrick is 8'000 in total once they remove the segregation covers
    Old Main Stand is about 5'000
    Kop and Tilton used to be 16'000 but they have taken two rows of seats out from the back of the Tilton to make more room for amenities plus they have covered up the front two rows of seats for the last few seasons to try to prevent pitch incursions

    Have we ever been outnumbered for a home match? Don't think we ever were at Northampton.

    Don't think so, but would have been close for the Wolves game.

    This all seems sensible. From what I can tell, most Blues fans would rather be in the away end. Keeps them happy and our ST holders won't have to move.

    Already receiving calls from friends and family asking to get them tickets, is it likely season ticket holders will be given priority for extra tickets?, or will it be season ticket seat purchase only?

    Honestly I suspect a sell out. It’s caught the imagination and is a local derby. I think we’ll sell our half and it’s basically a home game for them so they’ll probably sell out too.

    Not a cat in hell's chance will there be in excess of 10k City fans, and even if there were that many, the attendance for a cup game will be announced that there were 3,800 of us (as per 'tweaked'Ipswich and Bristol Rovers attendees)

    I'd agree, but if we wanted to we could probably get close to a sell-out by flogging tickets to Birmingham fans. 7.5k us, 15k Birmingham doesn't sound unreasonable as the conservative aim.

    is likely to happen for both this and the Mackem game which is truly depressing.
