So if I have the results page on the screen in front of me and a random Stockport address I'm laughing :grin:

There have been a quite a lot of Stockport fans on one of their message boards saying they can't understand why they haven't given us the whole of the Popular Side.

 

At first I thought the problem was down to them not having informed season ticket holders before they bought their tickets that they might get moved the odd time. But according to the Stockport fans they have relocated season ticket holders for this reason in previous seasons so a lot of them can't understand why they haven't done it again.

 

A lot of them are saying the other 2 stands won't sell out to home fans and the Popular Side is normally virtually empty anyway so they are annoyed at their club turning away money they can't afford to lose and a lot said they would rather have a big away following and a cracking atmosphere.

 

A number of them also said it's silly to risk friction due to having away fans in home sections when there is room to give us more tickets and a few of them also raised the issue of what will happen when they play Leicester and more particularly Leeds when the potential number of away fans wanting to go in the home end if they only get 2000 tickets could be even greater.

 

But as we all know, nothing is going to change now sadly.

They already played Leicester at home in August, drawing 0-0 in front of 7,151. Only 2,000 seats given over to visiting fans. No crowd trouble, apparently.

True, but we'll take more than Leicester did given our SuperDuper away support and the fact that it's a local one and one that we always made a big day out of but have missed for a couple of seasons.
