not too well old boy/girl....would be awfully grateful if one could rally your friends and family and bring them along...please don't ask how one get's one's tickets as we're not too clever at this interacting lark.would be jolly sporting of you though if you could purchase before the 19th.......must dash have to send a note with a pigeon to the far east from some boffins in London.

Hopefully 10k crowd, a good game and a win.
Not sure any United supporters wouldn't want that?

Just bought ours for the boy and me.

Disappointing sales, especially when you consider our win streak at home.

Looking pretty good I reckon.
There is still some time to go and should be best crowd of the season.

I imagine it will be better than most, but with a week to go and the run we are on I was expecting a 5 figure crowd but I don’t think we will achieve that based on the amount of available seats. 8k probably if we are lucky.

I reckon that if Southend bring say 500 it will be 9000 to 9500.
Parts of the ground are far busier than normal with almost a week left.

Ok let's say that Southend bring 500.
So around 7800 sold by now including those.
500 walk ups on the day and another 700 online?
That would make around 9000. I agree that we really should be looking for 10k for this one

Add 700-1000 from Southend I would imagine so should be pushing 10k. Sorry just read the first bit of your post.
