I know it has only been one day of restricted sales, but surely we should be selling faster than this. I realise the tickets are expensive, but this is the match we have waited years for.  I have my seven in the post.
Bristol will take more to Wembley -  they have sold 10k plus and have opened up the second tier already. We all need to be the 12th man - it will make a difference!

Still plenty of time. I would bet a lot of ST holders didn't realise they could but already. On the website at a quick glance it says tickets open for sale on Thursday.

We will take 18000-20000.

A lot of money for the day out but priceless should we win!

I thought 1000 on day one was 'slow' but many will have booked last night too.

It can only be guess work but personally cant see us getting close to 20k

I need to buy around 14 tickets (I'm arranging it so family and friends can sit together), but they won't let me buy this many at the moment! The web site will only allow orders up to 13 tickets and the bloke on the phoneline said I could only order 4 tickets per season ticket. A bit bizarre.

Rest assured, the sales will rocket up tomorrow.

Personally, I'd prefer to have seats higher than level 1 which is on offer at the moment. Get a better view a bit higher up in the stands.

Who gives a toss?

I would expect anywhere around 13 to 15 thousand would be good, anymore would be a bonus.

The pricing encourages people to book in large groups. It takes a while to contact everyone in your group to see if they can make it. The crowd might be bigger than early indications suggest. While expensive it's less than it costs to watch a premier league game in London at most grounds.

Couldn't agree more, the competition is on the pitch, not how many fans each team has.

Booking tickets is a marathon not a sprint. Be patient. There are enuogh seats for everybody.

We should not compare ourselves with Rovers sales to STHs.  They will have far more STHs anyway.

Families and friends have to determine first how many seats they want together.  Mon was a Bank Holiday with some people away. (Also need to sort out travel and maybe hotel arrangements at the same time and work out costs).

The vast majority of fans will book as non-STHs.
