1900, 500 of which are seats. Tinpot. 

You call them Tinpot but for me a very well run club who I hope we can have achieve some of their success that they have managed in recent years.  They are not a club like Salford, Mansfield or those in the National League who are trying to buy their way to success.  Yes the stadium is small and their gates are awful but they deserve their place in league 1.  Looking forward to the game and a good day out in Burton.

Salford- it’s a cup tradition 

 

Why do the television companies think that the nation is desperate to see this lot when the people of Salford clearly don't give a toss about them?  Television fees must be their main source of income when you see the size of their crowds.

If it wasn't for the Man Utd old boys connection, Salford wouldn't get a mention in a newspaper, never mind be picked for live coverage every round.

On the topic of TV companies paying money out, is there any interest at all in the WSL, which is now being broadcast every week on BBC and ITV? Would love to know the viewing figures, and what's been paid for the rights

Turned up at 08:30am, queue was about 70 people. Good service by staff so it took me only 5 minutes to enter office and exit a happy Valiant. Queue by then was all round carpark to Hamil Gates. Fair few in queue were waiting for several tickets each, with their mates season tickets to hand so I would say that there is a  likelihood of selling out today or tomorow.  Nice touch also was the free tea and coffee on offer to us cold ones in the queue. UTV.

Just been and got mine. 2 hours 10 minutes was in the queue for. 

As someone above has said nice gesture on Vale staff supplying drinks to people in the queue. 

A certain previous incumbent would of charged a quid a cup. 

Small things like that do make a difference no matter how trivial it may seem. 

But no de-caffinated so I'll be emailing my disgust 😂😂
