Yes POTD is much higher for away games but all our tickets are bought through membership and purchase history is clear to see. I actually think the club have got this broadly right - you can't please everyone. I think the point is that there are a lot of exiled fans like us who spend a lot of time, effort and money following City over the course of a season and the occasional nod of recognition would be nice. Still, I'm sure there'll be ample tickets to go round in the final!
Would also like to echo the frustration of being a mainly away supporting City fan not being recognised here. I understand it but can't say I agree with it. My son and I have used our Forever Bristol membership to go to Brentford, Watford, Birmingham, Reading, Ipswich and Fulham so far this season. I know the club don't profit financially from this but surely the team benefit from our support when there? Or is supporting your club now simply viewed in terms of pounds spent? Not looking for any special treatment at all just a fair chance of a ticket in return for following the club albeit away from Ashton Gate. It's particularly galling to be behind Basketball and Rugby fans too.
They actually started doing this at the Watford game. Thought it odd at the time as not only was it Flint's first start of the season, but there was no guarantee that he'd be staying then. Thought it was just to set Eliasson going down the wing in that game but they've obviously kept it going since.
