Two reduced allocations away for us: 2K at B'Ham and 2K at WBA no idea why, anyone blues/baggies shed any light?

(We've been given 8K for the Monday night Arsenal game)

It goes to show the argument that having tickets capped in this league is not affordable, teams only give the minimum 2k tickets despite the away end holding much more and no where near filling the stadium, us being a good example last year, basically writing off thousands and thousands in extra income over the season.

Don't clubs have to allocate 15% (ish) of their capacity to away teams in cup competitions?

Supposed to be 15% in the fa cup and 10% in the league cup, however if the police decide it's not safe then that figure becomes irrelevant. They've not got far off the 9k they should get at least.

Is that Boro figure real? 279 on a Saturday 3pm? I know it's a hell of a long way but wow.

Saying that we'll probably not have many more at Millwall next weekend. Or indeed Swansea on the 29th...
