1-0 at home then a repeat of our earlier visit for a comprehensive win on the way to an unexpected final v Peterborough. 

This Bolty. I actually think Posh could do Wednesday, the Owls really aren’t in good form and were apparently very lucky to beat Derby on Saturday. All the pressure will be on them, particularly at home, so I wouldn’t write off an upset either.

Happy to see where Barnsley are on that. Sheff and Peterborough focus can wait.

Derby's old men running out of steam at the end. I called that early on in the season

They’ve sprinkled shit with glitter (McGoldrick) this season but even he’s 35. Squad was way too thin for a 46 game slog 

fuck them for me. Big time Charlie’s thought they were going to walk it even when they only had 5 players

Let’s be honest Derby wasn’t 25k 

Our home attendances are very loose to say the least, season ticket holders included who don’t attend and many tickets given to Bolton at home not used too 

I will certainly eat my words and love to proved wrong but as season ticket holders need to buy a ticket this will a more accurate test 

Tickets still sold though.

Can't sell them twice. 

If the club sell out to ourselves then it's a justified decision. Still the same money, but fewer of theirs making a racket.

If not everyone turns out, then that's not the clubs fault.

I get that mate what I’m saying is that the attendance figures are very misleading imo the test will be the home leg as those extra kids tickets not being used probably won’t buy one

if the club sell out fantastic no complaints from me

Look, i hate to say this but i think radcliffes right

If hes honest, he hates the clubs decision as theres 3k lessxaway tickets available, which i completely understand

 

Back to how many we will sell, again, i think 20k would be very healthy as everybody has to pay

Its not the end of the world for me, but ive just spunked 75 quid on 4

Yes agree.

No heavily discounted tickets, but they’re only £20 anyway.

Surely though if you’re a ST holder you ain’t going to miss going to a Play-off game - 3PM Saturday? 

Attendance will be circa 23K.

I agree with @radcliffe white and @Casino 20k is my prediction too. 18k from us 2k from Barnsley. Which I’m fine with, it will be a decent effort. 

Would have preferred bigger away allocations as yet again we are due a ridiculous faster finger scramble again for the away tickets ☹️

The club seem confident on big sales hence the south lower

i don’t get talk of limit away fans due to atmosphere etc, like barnsley fans say they beat sheff weds & Derby with 5500 visitors but then lost to peterbo who brought 2k.

Yes, fly back the day before the away leg.

I’ll be looking like Ronnie Wood by then after another 10 days on the sauce.

C u there.

Id rather have a tier of empty seats then sit next to a packed away end. 

Obviously it fucks up for away, you'll get in though :D

Yep completely agree.

Like you said earlier I hope I’m wrong and its A 27k sell out at home - but I see 2/3k spare seats for each game in the “away ends” due to these restrictions, which just seems daft.

I reckon he's right.

I understand the view that not all have been turning up- I haven't been to all- but as a one off, if folk buy they'll turn up.

If a season ticket holder can't come, they're not going to shell out, and they'll become available generally.
