Chances of WBA making 4 points?

One of my favourite away days of the past few years!

Seem to remember it made general last year and it's almost identical timing for fixture

Just booked West Brom away.
Initially if offered row HH so I left it a while to see if seats nearer the front would come up. Instead went to MM so booked them.
I’d like to know how the club choose ‘best available’.

It's very frustrating. I had DD, then NN, then I managed to get row G after 15 minutes. Last season they gave you a choice of block at least, this season it's pot luck.

I had row BB last season and I recall the seats being too close - got offered JJ this season so presume they will be a better view to see the overall game.

Was JJ last year, about 15 from the back so a great view.

20+ points for Cheltenham Town away now on sale. Just got my ticket :thup:

Next sales bracket in an hour, then an hour after that.

Hi Sanchoz - what price are the tickets ? Do you know what the cost of the coach travel is..?

Got my West Brom, tickets, strangely it's one ground I've never been to. So row XX, for Row X... how far back am I going to be? Obviously not as bad as Newcastle.

Even the top row displays a great view at the Hawthorns.

Pretty far back you'll be with XX

£21 match ticket (club add £1 booking and handling).

Official travel is £25 but I have gone with Ironworks Tours for this game.

Cheers mate :thup: Don't mind an elevated view every now and then considering I'm row 18 at the bowl.

Well impressed with our away following selling out Cheltenham already given the number of away games, and the lack of travel options on a Wednesday night. :thup:

I thought it would sell out but surprised it was as high as 18 points.
I hope all those who bought tickets will be attending the match themselves.

Surprised but delighted to see our Cheltenham allocation sell out .I think the fact it's a new ground would have appealed to supporters .

First time in ages I've lost out due to not having enough points - 17.

Impressive selling out to that high points tally tho :thup:

Gutted, my son and I had enough points (19) but missed out due to being out at the time they went on sale. I promised we would do a midweek away during school holidays, plus another ground ticked off the list so lost out all round. My fault, so just have to wipe my mouth and watch it on the box.
