    We took 4800 there at £42 a pop. From their perspective, why wouldn't they charge the likes of us £42 and Leeds £37 when they know we will pay it?

    Doesn't mean you have to like or agree with it of course.

    Wednesday seem to have a wildly variable ticket pricing. Reading will pay £33. They also have a Membership system where home fans get a £5 reduction.

    Burton are the biggest draw. More home fans at the Amex to watch the Albions than any other game at the Amex so far.

    The Football League could and should put a cap on prices for Away fans like the shyte league have.

    Leeds charged us £40 for a midweek in December...

    I can kind of expect clubs to sneakily charge higher prices when they are expecting a large travelling contingent, but for us?

    Technically, you brought more fans than Preston did so the home fans attending the game against Preston outnumbered those that watched the Newcastle one. We had games last season that topped the 20k mark too.

    Surprisingly true. Game being Friday night before Christmas and live on TV probably convinced many Forest supporters to give it a miss most likely
