They'll easily sell out. Locals of these kind of clubs love the FA cup.

Shocked we didn't sell out today. Was in the queue about 9.30, by the time it opened there was a good 100 people, many buying more than one ticket. Plus then phone orders and a few put aside for players etc. Can't be many left.

Yes Mar....I mean Spiritater, it's because many of our ST holders don't travel away, the others that do travel haven't had chance to get a ticket yet

Big Yella - finally rumbled me. The staff of Winstons are definitely not missing you though ‘Trans-sexual Jeff Stelling’ sends his regards and for sixty euros he has something to give you that will make your eyes water.

Bummer. I am very surprised that we couldn't shift 500 tickets in 2 days for a FA cup game an hour up the road

I cannot believe this has not sold out, although I imagine many others like myself will be content watching it on tv than standing in a park.

Will the club be filming the event? It could be patched live onto the scoreboard.

Or will I need to take my binoculars.
As the old saying goes, 'A good sweep is honest and true. He maybe dirty he may be mucky, but he never, never ever goes back on his word'.

These words were immortalized by Herbert Humphampton famous sweep to the middle classes of the Victorian era.

If there are any tickets left after 30 hours I'll show my hairy one to the Quarry Lane


Tick tock chimney, do we need to get the chad involved :hysteria:

Fair play though you did remind people above of your statement :lol:

True, chimney sweeping is a honourable profession, my Grandfather started as a chimney boy in 1910 and resumed his career after the Great War, and my father carried it on. Alas it's not financially viable anymore and if it wasn't for my annual contract on the Black Isle I would need other employment

Nevertheless I shall honour my statement at some point

Let's hope the remaining tickets sell soon

Can we have a heads up for when the deed's gonna be done ie 55th minute (as that was the fateful number of unsold tickets left initiating the dropping of chim's clouts) then we could begin a round of applause. We'd be offering our support, and not just to draw everyone's attention to him... honestly.
