    Twenty is plenty, pretty much half your ground, two quid pints and live music. You're showing other clubs how it's done.

    Really do appreciate you sharing this information.
    Opponents, of note, so far this season. Oxford and Bradford were brilliant (I'm talking fans here, by the way), Coventry were respectable, Luton quite bitter, and Peterborough a bit ridiculous (though there's a bit of a silly historical story there whereby it's apparently our fault Palace beat and relegated them).
    But, my point is, you, sir, are doing a great job of representing a club that most people have a bit of a soft spot for.
    Looking forward to facing you, both home and away, and wish you very best of luck for this season and the future.
    Thank you.

    Coventry weren't respectable. VVankers.

    "1-0 on your big day out." The arrogance of a fanbase which only escaped the fourth division in May. Via the play-offs. I hope they lose their stadium.

    Been to Accrington a few times, in the corporate bit hob nobbing. Think the catering was done by Burnley, but whoever it was it was great. Smashing club, great fans and enjoyed the banter. Best bit was one of their fans asking me in his Bumble accent where I was from. Barnsley, he says, have they even got a football team? Christ...

    Watch out for the Stanley ultras!

    We saw Bumble when we were last there. Walked past us in the ground with a pie and a tea. Just one of the regular fans, and no one paid him any attention considering his celebrity.

    As you say though, it's a great place. Many won't appreciate it and no doubt some of our younger fans will try and take the piss, but it really is a special club considering it's history.

    One for the footballing bucket list

    Yeah I hope our fans don't take the piss singing about a shed or about their ground and fans. Great chants at places like Peterborough but I hope we appreciate more what Accrington are doing.

    So I hope you are all happy with your allocation of 2300 out of a 5300 capacity. It will be the highest number of visiting supporters to attend a match at our stadium.
    Again, any questions about your visit don't hesitate to ask.

    Doing what you can to get more people in the ground. Always seems a waste when we sell our allocations out and their is loads of space not being used in the home ends that we could have been given. That could be the case for a few teams already.

    As tickets go on sale, just bumping this back to the top. Parking has sold out at the stadium but there are no residential parking restrictions in the town.

    I’ll be having a three course meal while I’m there.

    To make room for some ale I’ll at some point need to make some er adjustments.

    Is it quilted?

    Nobody has to give up a place. Do what we used to do in not selling to our own in half the west stand incase the away end sells out. Been a few away games this season we could have easily got more at. Peterborough and Scunny for example. Accrington have been savvy and going to make good money from the match.

    True re other grounds but would think we have been given 2 sides of ground already so in this case impractical. I agree re Peterborough they could have partititioned behind the left hand side as most were over to the far left. Donny could quite easily accommodate more than they give us. But I think there would be an uproar.

    We have given you half of our stadium. It's the maximum number of away supporters we can accommodate. There isn't anywhere else! We have always given clubs what they have needed as long as we can accommodate, never charging more than £20.

    We have a capacity of just over 5000. Our record attendance is 4753. The back row of our biggest stand is Row H.

    Would like to thank the Barnsley fans who laid a wreath for the Accrington Pals today in France.
