Re: Derby v Wednesday support thing from Jose and Mr71 in earlier chat.

The best indicator for me about 'support' for a club is consistent away numbers relative to the size, stature (and home attendances) and mood/league postion of your club. It equates to effort to do the hard miles. Derby fail on that front in my book and are often below par. Wednesday are better 'supported' by a distance when you factor in the above.

I think Wednesday have a lot more going against them than derby do. They have had it worse too. I do believe derby used to give quite a few tickets away at pride park like Sunderland did when they moved to the SOL.

No idea how many we've sold for one of our nearer games in Derby but at £31 a ticket, on Sky and having just travelled to Millwall and Swansea over Christmas I'm going to hazard around 1,000 at best. But we do get to see Wazza though so..

How many are you expecting to bring over to us in the cup on Sunday?

Dunno, club have been a bit stingy with ticket info in the last year or so. I'd expect to fill the stand along the side, don't know if we've been given one behind the goal as well.

Don't think we're selling tickets in there so they will be available if needed. To be fair if you fill the 1650 down the side that will be a decent following.

We've not even filled the side - 1,121 sold. Irrespective of our form this season, I thought we'd have taken more at £15 and 1hr 45 away on a Sunday.

I'd guess we had the same at Derby last night although not seen any figures.

Huddersfield sold 4,000 for Saturday at Oakwell, should sell out given they'll only have received 4,400.

Good following that from Hudders, looking at pictures it appears we opened up a few bits of the away end that have been off limits for a while. Senseless having 6,000 capacity stand and only allowing teams 4,400 as was the case with Leeds.
