    Only been given 2k.

    Although the old fashioner in me never quite brought into the whole "10k2mk" project, it was hugely effective.

    We took almost 6,000 I think to Nottingham Forest some years ago. Infact we have often took big numbers. I see no reason why we shouldn't do that this time round. I would be hugely disappointed if there was no big demand for this one.

    I am getting 8 tickets on Saturday, hopefully many others get the ball rolling. I am calling out for the tweeters out there to get all over this one, MK Dons left a great memory, seeing so many in numbers was fantastic, it was a Cardiff esque look and strangely the last to that effect was Forest those years ago - is it possible to recreate something similar in a months time?

    Over to the social media lot!

    We won't need the social media lot to shift 2k tickets for this one and it's almost certain we won't get any more tickets given they now segregate the area they used to give wholly to away fans.

    Been telling everyone all season we'll only get 2k (Forest changed how they allocate away fans). Can't see the point in any campaign 2k will go easily anyway.

    Think it was 5500 we took a few years ago (2009 Kightly last minute winner) we had the whole end then + two blocks down the side. While we won't get the whole end in addition to the 2k I wonder if we could get those 2 blocks again?

    Really wanted to go to this but not going back on my word of not paying £30 or more for 2nd division football.....shame.

    Ahh.. sorry didn't really didn't realise that.

    Really disappointed. Dampener on a day I was really looking forward to almost.

    Huge shame at a time we could well need all the support we could get.

    Would've thought we'd be able to get nearer to a 10k2MK scenario for the Wigan game. Would also be good if we could send them down at the same time

    Sending Wigan down would be just deserts after they all went on the pitch giving it the big 'un on the last day of the season in 2012. Well, before one Wolves fan charged towards them and they $$$$ themselves....

    Still makes me scream with laughter now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF4u7XmurAo

    Only 2k allocation is pitiful.

    Suppose if they're consistent then fair do's but like Wolves they aren't filling the ground and have a capacity more than capable of supply a bigger away allocation.

    we were in the forest stand when kites scored that day, it proved a bit difficult when the fans I sat next to started to discuss "our" team and speculating on the team line up against wolves and subsiquently asked me what I thought. at that point I decided to become a mumbling, non communicative fan and although I got a few looks they accepted I wasn't much of a talker, my mate had decided it was better to grunt and nod in agreement with them. all went well until kites scored and my pal was up out of his seat with his arms in the air and received an elbow in the ribs from me and he emitted a loud grunt along with me and a few exclamations in reaction to the scoring of a goal. a few more expletives from us as we celebrated inwardly while making it sound as if we were disappointed at going one down and the game finished as we watched the magnificent wolves fans celebrating.

    I few of us want to go to this but at that price it will probably put us off, might just go for the $$$$ up & stick £30 on a Forest win.

    This should sell out pretty quickly. Best make sure I get my ticket, as I've already booked my train!

    Most companies run ammended services, but it's only the less frequent trains which tend to be affected, more regular routes should be alright, I'd have thought?

    Praying these make it down to the 100 loyalty points barrier.

    Do people think it will? If there's two season ticket holders out there who can give me their numbers or whatever so I can sort a ticket out for me and my old man I'd be eternally grateful!

    We only gave forest 2,300 so they are perfectly entitled to give us similar. I think you will find £30 will be the norm for away games next season if we are still in this division.

    Why? With the TV money, it should be reducing the prices.

    For those that haven't, sign this, it's not a lot but it triggers an email to the club. Can only try.

    As mentioned I won't be here there for this. So I'll have two supporter No's. with more than enough points not being used if anyone needs them, but I'll have to check with my old man first to make sure that's ok with him!

    Everyone saying its a $$$$ allocation for a 30,000 seater stadium are spot on. But I'd imagine thats what Derby fans might be saying about the 2500 they've got for our place with a 32,000 (nearly) seater stadium. Wolves aren't much better.

    Have they asked for the NB quadrant?

    Be surprised if they brought more than 2500 on a Friday night Sky game anyway.

    Not sure, don't think Wolves seem keen on doing that anymore (not done at all this season).

    Think they'll fill it it might be a Friday but there is trains back after the game etc and don't forget its the half price game and they're second. Their website seems to think they'll sell out easily they've not even got a date for general sale as they don't expect it to make it.

    Derby will sell out, their away support is very good.

    As for the Forest allocation, what's our average away following this season?? 1,700/1,800ish?? So don't think we should moan too much, it's only bandwagon jumpers who will miss out on Forest tickets.

    I'll be highly surprised if Derby sell out. Their home support is great, away support not so.

    Got no chance of getting a ticket for this one, although I've been to 12 away games this season.

    Got to love the Wolves 'loyalty' scheme. $$$$ take.

    Thats why I suggested a simpler loyalty points scheme 1 per game (whether away, home, cup or league)

    Season ticket holders get 24 at that start of the season (as in effect are paying for 24 games) and maybe say 1 bonus one for paying up front?

    Will never happen though as with that simpler scheme the club wouldn't be able to effectively allow people to buy loyalty points (AST and MyWolves) so won't do it.

    Derby will sell out I'm sure, look on their site they even say no date set for general sale as its unlikely it will even make it to general sale.

    It absolutely should be reduced to between £20 - £25 in the championship but it will never happen.

    Why wouldn't you get a ticket, do you not have a home ST? Maybe you should invest in an away one.

    No I'm a MyWolves member.

    If I could invest in an away ST without a home I probably would. You can't though.

    How come you go to that many away games then, do you just prefer it. How many home games have you done?

    I can't do Tuesday evening games so my ticket would be left empty. I love the away games. It's the only time me and my mates get together, apart from a Saturday down the Mol.

    I've done 13 at Molineux this year (league).
