They will sell out, they were queueing early this morning for tickets.

I know Chambta & he's a decent bloke. I would advise the QL end or if you want to bring any kids go in the family stand.

I wonder if they'll give us an extra stand when we go there?

Family stand is for Stags fans only . I don't want to be sat next to one of them.... Could catch something..
In all fairness it wouldn't bother me as long as the spireite isn't a twonk who thinks he's Muhammad I'm hard Bruce Lee.
He who laughs last clearly didn't get it...

Looking at bobs board they are already planning to infiltration the IGU, planning on sitting near the halfway line should they need to. Can only assume they either want to sit with John or join Martin on commentary :roll:

Talk is cheap, especially on football message boards.

The ones who want to get a ticket will get one, a handful will sit quietly in the home stands and the vast majority like good little piggies will sta at home.

The ones talking a good fight will be giving excuses 'tater would be proud of on the eve of the game, probably along the lines of 'don't want to give the scabs any money'.

T'will be interesting what good the Gabbitas gate will achieve on the day with a good amount of sheep fiddlers in our ends. Could turn nasty if the sheep nick a late winner. Yes highly unlikely but there's always the chance of a 'Calvin' moment and Anyon playing the game of his life between the sticks.

It'll be best for all concerned for the sheep to get thumped. Plod'll be happy, SAG'll be happy and we'll be happy.

Every time we play the cheats, or the wrinklies we get the same thing.

Thousands of em coming in the home end bla bla bla

It never happens, you get the odd one or two sitting on their hands for 90 mins, who have to endure the indignity of politely clapping our goals so as not to give the game away.

They dont get a refund if they get kicked out. Let them in, take their cash then get them ejected.

I'm not saying you're suggesting they'll be god knows how many in our ends, but it always makes me laugh when sides say this

County reckoned there would be a good thousand in our ends, and maybe there was 50. The fiddlers will be no differemt.

Taking into account their players can't kick a ball in a straight line, they'll not be many coming over to see that pile of ****

It’s very rare for a fan to go in the home end, would you do it?

Stupid myth.

So why do we get 1500 extra home fans when County are in town and not when Grimsby or Swindon or Luton are in town.
We might win against Accrington next time.

I went in the home end V's Newcastle in the cup.

Terrible experience, and forced to cheer the Shearer goal against us.

I'd sooner miss the game, than repeat this ridiculous decision.

You'd have to be a special kind of stupid to attempt this in a Mans/Cheats game.

For the same reason that county get more home fans when we go there, and Chesterfield will get more home fans when we go there, bigger games attract more people.

quite simply Pete that a lot of fans want to go to what they consider the big games, such as Chesterfield and Notts County, and not the likes of Swindon and Grimsby.

It depends how desperate you are to see your team. When H*slam banned me from Field Mill he told all the coppers & stewards not to even let me in the stands if they saw me. I just went in the North Stand with the away fans with a hat & scarf around my face. It might be stupid to some people but I was desperate to see my team.

I was in the main stand for the late Liam goal with a st from a friend who couldn't attend. Very hard to sit on my hands when he scored the late winner but worth it

I went in the away end at a Newcastle v Sunderland game C1980 with my Mackem brother in law and I can honestly say, it's the most paranoid and scared I've ever felt in my life. After about 10 minutes, we scrambled out of the terrace (the old Sid James's Park there was a long drop from pitch level to the bottom of the terrace) and surrendered to the nearest plod. He helpfully tried to `hoy waas' back into the stand. The locals by now had obviously spotted us and started surging down the steps to have a word. Brother in Law pulled a Sunderland scarf out from under his coat, and the penny finally dropped with the PC. I thought we'd get chucked out by they just marched us up to the away end and chucked us back with the Sunderland fans. That 100 yard walk was horrible, my legs were like rubber and we were getting gobbed at all the way.

At the SAFC end the fans were going ape cheering us because they thought we were proper nutters for going in the Mags end, when in truth it was just one idiot & one terrified teenager who had bought tickets from a tout.

Do you mean home end Sneag? That makes no sense...

Why did you leave the home end in the first place? Unless you were actively cheering the other team, seems odd that people would know any different.

People love to say there'll be loads of away fans in our stands but it never happens. There's usually a few who sre sensible enough to keep quiet but thats it.

I'd be surprised if the sheep even sell out the North Stand.

Yeah, that should say `home' end. Sunderland V Newcastle is the closest derby for bitter hatred the England has to Celtic v Rangers. We were two Sunderland fans on a terrace with thousands of Newcastle fans, you are obviously too young to remember the `good old days' of real terrace violence, what we have today is kindergarten stuff in comparison. We probably could have stood there quietly and we may have been okay, but standing in a sea of humanity that are baying for opposition blood, when you are in the opposition makes you extremely paranoid.

It was a different time, I've sat quietly in a pub full of Spireites as Stags fans were escorted past & I watched the Cup Replay with Lincoln in a pub full of Gimps, both were an absolute doddle compared to that day at Newcastle.

Depends on how results go from now till then. If we continue to have most of Lge 2 laughing at us for being a million miles away from our 'Promotion Favourites' tag and t'sheep pick up a couple of wins (unlikely I know) then they'll sell out. If the boot were on the other foot and roles reversed and we hit a little form and the sheep were stuttering like us atm would we sell our away allocation at the Proact?

It's amazing what a couple of wins in the league do for confidence.

Can remember standing in Cambridge end v stags in promotion decider way back in the day.
We got to Cambridge early and went to wrong ground! By time we found out we couldnt get in stags end so stood with locals. Terrible day we lost and I think they got promoted. Made worse by having to appear to
celebrate when they scored

Don't kid yourselves that there won't be a sold out away end. Tickets haven't gone on general sale and when they do will be snapped up very quickly, hence why there'll be plenty of Spireites in home areas. For the last league game at your place half of that sparsely populated home end was Town fans, if not more.
