Less than 15% then, any chance it'll drop to 1?
It is 15%. Capacity is just over 16000. And think anyone who wants one will get one, although maybe not on own card

Capacity of 17800 according to Google, 15% is 2670, 200 tickets less

Hopefully a few spares with it being such a long trip. Never been to the ground so would be good to tick it off the list.

Think it is actually less than that as parts of the stadium can not be used

Just checked it out. Apparently they have closed the 2 family blocks for this game. So we probably have 15% of the operational capacity to be fair

The previous allocations were as follows :

1347 – Exeter
5990 – West Ham
825 – Wimbledon
5046 – Bolton
3733 – Palace
7223 – Blackburn
2080 – Bournemouth
5186 - Arsenal

So IF we get 2080 or more, I reckon the selling criteria will be :

6/8 – guaranteed
5/8 – not guaranteed

I guess we'll find out today or tomorrow.

So back of the envelope, not thinking about corporate.

Max 1347 have 5/6

Leaving 2462-1347 = 1115 max tickets available, with 3733-1347= 2386 eligible. Roughly 50:50 chance.

Mad scramble for me Friday morning, trying for 6, with max 4 tickets in any one transaction.

Same here.  Remember leaving it until lunch to get tickets and there was nothing left.  No returns either.  Personally I don't think this will last the day on 4, so won't go to 3.

I would be in the same boat as you mate as I hate missing games at grounds I've never been too.

but..

I was in the Navy based in Plymouth back in the early 90's and went to a FA cup 3rd rd tie at Home Park against Barnsley for something to do on a Saturday afternoon.  So its ticked off my list :)

Fair fucks to the lads going down there.

I've done the same with a few of the lower league grounds up north as my Dad used to follow Blackpool as well as Liverpool in the 70s so he took me to Bloomfield Road before it was developed. Also got dragged to Oldham with family and played in a football competition at Preston when they had the plastic pitch.

So people that will buy but have no intention in going themselves won't have enough time to post them elsewhere I'd imagine.

Nah, the club don't give a f**k about that. Or they would clamp down on the guys on twitter selling THIRTY TWO tickets for the replay. I'm guessing he wouldn't be selling 32 tickets to a Wembley game or to united away.

The club know it's going on, they just don't care.

Well 32 to Wembley would be worth a fair bit of money if he's in the business of touting them.
