Or it's been huge & they started selling from the back down, so nearly sold out now.


Nah, got ours at 5pm yesterday in Row A - it's definitely from the front!

Allocation for Man City is just under 2000.


Thanks for that brownout.

Would that imply an allocation of only the bottom tier? Being so we've had consistently good followings, selling out virtually every (if not all?) away game for the past 2 years this seems strange.

The club seem to care zilch about the away following. Wouldn't surprise me if their decision to reduce the away allocations was sinister.

My AST seat is in row 11 if that helps

Just under 2000 is pathetic, we have a lot of northern Hammers who go to these games as well as the usual suspects.

Plus as already mentioned it was games like this that would give those who might not be able to get tickets for other games a chance to go to an away game and also get on the priority points ladder.

Only 22?!?!

Some of us are way down on that and have no chance of getting more as tickets usually sell out before reaching our totals... :(

It's quite frustrating. the new system is obviously pretty good and convenient, even if I do miss the old fashioned form submissions and worrying whether they've received it when you don't get the confirmation email before 3pm...

But my kids like to be at the front, I used to put on the form that my preference is front row and they usually managed to accommodate, but now I either take what's given or mess around until I manage to bag something near the front. They should at least let you choose by block as they did when this system first got implemented.

There is the facility to choose your block within the system, they just don't seem to activate it now. Maybe a few of us could request it was done every time?

What it takes is for clubs to treat us ( Club) as we have treated them taking the minimum allocation, lets see how the Mighty midget and his side kicks like it when gate revenue drops from the away team. They deserve everything they get, Just three very nasty people who have no feelings for the club or its support.

Take away the ASTHs, comps etc and there's no many left for the rest of the 52,000 STHs or 20,000 members ?

Very dissapointing for the Northern Hammers

Just called the ticket office. Confirmed we requested only 1600 tickets from Man City.

Every time someone like Jack or Gold praise our away support, the fact they take minimum allocations should be put to them.

Forget the interest they charge, selling our ground, turning us into a franchise etc - the real canary in the mine with this lot is in how they treat the away support.

I think what happened with the crowd turning on the board at Spurs really rattled Kim Jong Un 2 and his boy. Maybe they don't want anyone other than the fat cat bondholders, the aged and decrepit AST* and corporates to make a noise?

Is that the decrepit AST** holders that manage (despite their decrepitness) to travel to every away game and have done in many cases for decades?
