Most at Exeter and Salford were standing only a few were in seated areas and that makes for a good atmosphere Salford was amazing so with unreserved seating fans can stand with mates and roar em on and the “ sit down “ brigade can sit out the way 

Sit down brigade ?

Couple of camper vans there already. Expecting a queue by 6.30am. 

Good God.

Just absolutely mental. 2022. Please don't let me see anyone celebrating this tomorrow; 'what support clap clap'. Fair play to those committed enough but it shouldn't be happening.

Good luck to those heading down. Once more unto the breach.

For the last thirty years or so one thing has been proved to me, terracing was far less complicated. Even 'Safe' standing will have the same issues as seated tickets. Proper terracing needs to be brought back with a crush barrier every two or three steps and not every 10-20 steps like Hillsborough. That was the problem there along with the fencing and poor organizing. I live in hope that we return to that. That those who wish to sit for the entire game can do so in dedicated seating areas.

Couldn’t agree more MV

As an example the away end at Salford holds 1100 but I felt it wasn't really full. Spoke to an official who said if they were to put seats in you could get 420ish.

Unpopular opinion alert.

It is a disgrace that in 2022 the club seems to see this way of selling tickets as acceptable. 

I appreciate everything the Shanahans have done for the club but this farcical approach to ticket selling has been a consistent during their ownership and goes back as far as December 2019 when we drew Man City in the cup.

Given the criticality of selling tickets (our main income stream) it beggars belief that we are so far behind the times with ticket selling.

My dad, the sprightly age of 82, used to tell me tales of massive queues for the FA Cup run in 1954. Packed trains, people scaling walls. Queues like you've never seen. 

68 years on from that ........................

There must be a better way of doing things in this day and age than forcing people to camp out overnight in a car park. 

To be fair don’t think they were forced!

Is there toilets up there? No way I could spend the night there without needing the bog. I'm not knocking folk who have camped out or gone early, but there's gotta be a better way. Surely a points scheme needs putting in place so only blocks of fans are queuing on one particular day. And an online system so you can buy tickets whilst sitting in your pants, on the settee with a brew.

Some fans literally can't miss a game. They either see it as a duty or it is crucial to their wellbeing.

For them to have to camp out overnight in a car park to be guaranteed a ticket is a disgrace.

What I don't understand is why home tickets can be sold online but not away.
