League Cup
« on: August 26, 2021, 11:28:02 am »
So Norwich away first. Hopefully we'll have a run.

Was good the other week, but doubt we'll have as many Scousers and the League Cup isn't what it used to be.

As far as I know, it's still 10% of capacity, as opposed to the 15% it used to be. So allocation likely to not be too different to a league match. Might give us more if they don't have the demand.

Still, reckon it'll go to at least all ST's, possibly all members. Reckon I'll go.

It's good and bad

Bad because it's cheap enough for loads to buy and not go for the credit for the next round.

Need it to drop to all members and still have a chance at getting one

Do we think LFC coaches will sell out before it gets to 1 away?

Want to go, esp at those prices and would prefer to do a coach there and back.  But not too bothered about driving just will get a B&B for the night.

I dread to think just how many will qualify but with no intention of going, will just buying a £1 kids ticket and bin it just so they'll stay on the ladder even though it will only count for this seasons comp.

Sadly that will happen, can see our end being half full at best.  Difficult one to solve, put the prices up to discourage credit hunting and there will be plenty of complaints. Say the game doesn't count as a credit for any further rounds this season and that will really piss anyone off who does attend.  Make it ticket collection in Norwich, a non starter due to logistics.  Best thing for me would be to keep the credits for future rounds on previous seasons with each game this season being sold under the same rules.

The club are in a difficult position as to how to solve this. Once NFC is up and running and more importantly, working for every top flight club for home and away supporters, then that solves the problem as no scan at the turnstiles = no credit.

The problem with keeping the credits for future rounds based on previous seasons with each game this season being sold under the same rules is that for those that do actually make the effort to go to Norwich will not necessarily be in with a chance of getting a ticket for a potential 4th round LC away whereas someone that has loads of previous history but didn't bother going to Norwich would then have priority for the next round.

It makes no odds to me as I'll qualify and I'm going but plenty of others will be desperate to go but won't be able to get a ticket from the club as a spare will be their only chance.

Final of the League Cup is a big allocation. It's great they're charging kids a quid. Too much panicking. When the last time that people struggled for League Cup Final tickets? Probably 1984.

Some might buy a kids ticket but there wont be that many.

Definitely! Itís should go on sale to people with previous away attendance first then go to previous home attendance as the criteria next. They should do that for all cup comps

I would have thought it would go on previous LC away's and then straight to all Season ticket holders and then all members. Think that might have been what happened for the MK Dons away game.

Although I'd certainly welcome them taking previous home attendance into account.

Yeah thatís whatíll happen. Iíd probably take as a compromise STHs with x home attendance then members with x home attendance. Weíll never have a level playing field in the cups but you should expect them to have gone to some cup games haha most do!!

So they should be. I gave my season ticket up when you could just buy them in the ticket office, my loss.

Season ticket holders and priority rights saved the club when they were begging people to buy them in multiples, banned from playing in Scotland and Wales.

Less. Holds about 20,000 and League Cup is 10%

Might give us more if they think they wont sell out. Think they gave us the whole of the Kop last time, but that was FA Cup (15%)

Edit - 23,404.

So about 2,300. Might give us more if segregation doesn't allow 10%.

Have to see, if their concourses can't be segregated they might have to give us whole Kop again.

So their Kop can be segregated. Reckon it'll be 2,900. They'll sell out against us.
