You know what? I think I'll probably leave it at that. £45 for a 3rd Round Tie that's on TV?

Their fans are screaming that all away fans should pay no more than £20 in the PL yet they'll fleece a League 1 side all day long. Feck 'em. My birthday game has now become Posh at home  :ok:

Or we could find a decent boozer in Sheff to watch it in and then go for a ruby after......as well as doing Posh for your bidet  :ok:

Ziah is desperate to go as you have p[robably figured but I don't think we'll get tickets as he doesn't have enough Loyalty Points until the 29th December and the Category 1 seats we want will probably have gone by then  :-[

We'll still go, just we probably won't get the seats we want

Don't get me wrong Dane, I'd love to be there. We've missed days like that, but they're taking the piss and they're not taking mine. It's a real shame. They'll easily sell all the tickets, BUT they won't sell all their own, so instead of having a rocking atmosphere they choose to make us pay for them to put the game on.

We were selling tickets for a tenner last season in this competition, and in later rounds than this one. £45 ???? This is the first year I haven't gone on 3rd round day in as long as I can remember but this time I'll watch us win from the comfort of feckin' Champs if I have to  :DB

Don't forget they also get the TV cash as well so these prices are Feckin robbery  )O(

Actually Eeyore, the FA Cup money is split 3 ways. 10% to the FA and 45% to each club. That's FA Cup rules and on their website. (I actually thought it was 20% to the FA and 40% to each club as the FA had to give a percentage to the sponsors).

You all know what Ziah's like about Rooney and Man Utd and how he was when we lost to Preston last season. Picking him up after that game was hard. He did say at the time that he was done with Sheff Utd, he was fed up of disappointment after disappointment. This time he'll get to go and see them.

As an added bonus, A kind lady, who's not going, has the same number of loyalty points as me has kindly offered me her Customer Number and that means we can get our tickets on the 19th, so Xmas Pressie coming up! I can't wait to see his face  ;D

Even so, they still get an extra 45% on top of the gate receipts, which is still taking the piss for a 3rd round tie vs a League 1 side......fech em

Hannah was going to buy my ticket for mi birthday. Told her not to bother at those ridiculous prices. Looks like Bury away will be my pressie.

One of my old work colleagues could have got me 2 tickets @ £24, but I would have to have sat with the red scum. When we win I wouldn't have been able to contain myself, and would have ended up with a kicking.

Looks like the old boozer will be my seat for this match.

Totally understand Dane, I'm sure he'll love it and I hope you have a great day. I haven't been there since they increased the attendance to about 77k and I really was looking forward to it but for some reason I just can't bring myself to cough up that kind of money for a 3rd round cup match. I'd rather go to Bury away  :ok:

What's plan for this Sat then?

Meeting in town/Tap? Train down about Mid-ish-Day? Find a Boozer in't Mancs?

Train tickets for me and Ziah are £28ish return, which I didn't think was too bad tbh.

What we doing?

OK - slight change of plan transport wise for me - Mrs V has decided she'd like a couple of days shopping in and around Manchester so she's booked us a hotel for Saturday night - we'll be going across early Saturday morning and then I'll meet up with you guys when you arrive (our hotel is near to Piccaddilly so if your train comes into there can meet up as you arrive or meet at a boozer near the ground.

Gave Eeyore and Lings their tickets on Saturday but I still have Southampton's. I believe Lings is driving across cos he needs to shoot off straight away afterwards for an evening out (he'd forgotten it was a later kick off!!)

Not sure what Eeyore and Southampton's plans are - I know Southampton was talking about staying over originally.

I'll be getting over there around 2:30/2:45. Find us a boozer and drop me a text Vamps. Hope we can hook up with the Dane-o-meister as well.

Or on a more serious note any idea where you're planning to park? Plenty of reasonable boozers around Salford Quays which isn't far from the ground.....

Craftbrew
Lime
Quay House
Dockyard

All reasonable and you could get free parking there providing you buy £5 worth of beer  :whi :whi :whi :whi http://www.lowryoutlet.co.uk/car-parking/

we can get to the lowry outlet mate - or we can park somewhere out of town and get the tram?

No thanks - still have nightmares about that! I was crunched up sitting sideways with my neck at an angle for the best part of 2 hours! Oh, and we lost.......
