Can understand not giving them more tickets if we’re using the south stand ourselves and in that case they would be in upper tier anyway? 

It’s more that given them more than the 1,800 would mean opening the upper tier with costs for C1,500 when they might only sell 100 tickets up there so we make a loss on it. Recall a similar situation against Huddersfield at Easter a few years ago, and Blackburn as well to come to think of it.

Blackpool getting 11k? Fair fucks. 

When we played them in the early rounds of the EFL cup a few years back they barely had 300 on.

No advertising hoardings. Hardly any home fans and 2 completely closed stands. Was bleak. 

Bolton sold out and still fucking lost! 🤣

Yeah I think so. Kayne woolery scored for us IIRC 

Then we lost. 

It was August but by full time it was fucking Baltic.

That was during their boycotts IIRC, it was a very strange experience. 

It was. 

I don't think we got anywhere near there during our troubles.

Best we got in LOV was "there's no quiz today because the microphone and PA system has been repossessed" 

Or a guy who had brought his wife and 2 lads for his sons birthday, paid probably 200 for the privilege only to find out catering wasn't on when he turned up so had to go to KFC on middlebrook and bring it in to the LOV! 🤣

Blackpool's gate last night was just over 11,000 as have been all their home games this season. That's actually not bad for them! 

Dunno how many but Huddersfield did their bit selling out the away end

Always makes me chuckle thinking about being at Blackpool and seeing the full Watson @barryk32 family being marched out laughing and waving  

Thats family bonding pal.  None off this trips to the zoo bullshit.  If your not being thrown out of a football stadium and threatened with arrest as a family youre playing at it.  We got thrown out of a pub earlier for giving my lad a WKD too.

They were threatening all sorts unless we told them where we got our tickets from.  My eldest got a life lesson on not grassing your mates up.  Our resident donkey botherer was safe as houses.
