Gave us full one against United in the Europa and FA Cup/League Cup a few seasons ago,

City fans are somehow more bother though these days as they want to be something they're not (entitled) - If they do then I hope we reduce their allocation at Anfield.

Fuck that petty mentality. Why penalise match going fans?

They are not the ones choosing to (theoretically) reduce the allocation, it would be the police, safety advisory board, the club. Rail against them, not match going fans.

Can see this dropping to members/STH (only by a few though) - Don't think many will want to travel to the Etihad straight after the World Cup

Be interesting if the club impose NFC for this game too

I'll be travelling down the East Lancs, not via Qatar ;D

Going to be a right bum fight for this if you only have 1 credit.

Sounds painful :o

If it was to drop (which it won’t) tickets should go to fans based on home attendance in that cup

Spot on.

The BBC seem to think it’s on the 22nd as well:

“Traditionally, most of those games end up on the Tuesday or Wednesday, although Manchester City will host Liverpool on Thursday, 22 December.”

City away is just as heavy as United now, we even got kept in last season

Wouldnt surprise me if they reduced the allocation

And Thursday is definitely likeliest, given City don't play their first league game back until the 28th

Even if we only end up getting our normal league allocation of around 3K (this wouldn't surprise me as no doubt GMP will push for this), I think you'll be fine as the allocations for those 4 were as follows :

3100 - Derby
3330 - Southampton
3305 - Leicester
6301 - MK Dons

i watched the chelsea game at my sisters. her 12 year old son is severly autistic and i forgot myself and jumped up screaming at the goal and he went nuts. screaming and shouting. scared the fuck out of me. apologised to my sister as i thought id upset him, turns out he was joining in.

No chance imo, hopefully I'm wrong though.

Yeah it's bullshit, Arsenal got 450 more tickets for Anfield than we did for their place last season!! I notice they, sorry the police were happy for Brighton to have 7k there last week though and Wimbledon 9k last season but apparently we aren't even allowed the 6k we were entitled to. It's nonsense. Hopefully this isn't the same, should be what Chelsea got, no excuses.

Gutted it's the Thursday as probably have to give it a miss as cant get out of work. Tuesday and Wednesday I could manage. Just seems to be the way it's going for me this season ticket wise. Hopefully we get the full allocation and make a bit of noise to show them how it's done properly.
