Beambacks should only be available when we sell out the away allocalation.

Go to Norwich, the players need us.

Buy tickets people! so we can get the beam back. :laughcont:

Very reasonably priced actually, this one. Bloody long way to go, but can't argue with the pricing. 

Looks like 624 sold so far.

Embarrassing really! Almost every other team in the league in out position and form would have sold out by now and be banging on there door for more tickets! Players deserve so much more!

9 hours travel, as said , with Rail replacement for a chunk of it after London. Still tempted , but understandable people are not rushing to do this one. Shame that City didn't think to put on a train or 2.

It's a big No from me, as said above our beam back record is bloody awful.

It’s a 100% win record, this season..! (Swansea away) 

However I’m a strong believer in beambacks only ever being done for games where there away allocation is sold out and it’s a way for those who can’t get tickets, to see the match. Especially on a Weekend fixture.

In the "old days," clubs - including us - made it easy, or easier, to go to these games. Encouraged them, even. By doing stuff like organising trains, the preferred mode of travel back then for far off games, at reasonable prices. Some clubs today still do stuff, even running trains, and subsidised coach travel etc.

But we don't appear to be one of them. Don't know why.

Key sticking point IMO the cost of travel- trains especially.

Now it's far from the only way to travel but in the past, trains were doubtless a lot cheaper which helped encourage more. Ticket prices can be a stretch but the travel price the real factor IMO.

This, and there are 3 changes to Carrow Road, including the tube and a fair amount of lag time at Ely / Paddington.

Yeah can appreciate that- meant in general terms with declines in numbers of away fans from past eras but doubtless this is a tricky one to get to. Lot of factors behind the wider reduction.

Surely if we were getting further allocation we would of by now. Norwich will easily bust the meshing sideways and sell more in home end so reckon this is our lot.

Why would they have given us a further allocation by now when there’s still 1/3 of the initial one left?

I mean they’d prob of wanted a answer from us if we want more as I’d imagine they’d easily sell extra home tickets. Away end holds 2.5k but if away team doesn’t want that much they move the segregation.

**** a beamback, if you want to watch it travel with the rest of us. Plenty of tickets spare, if you won't travel when we're on a run of 9 wins in a row and god knows how many unbeaten then what's the point in travelling ever?

Get yourselves there.

Here we go again again.....

Would have gone to this one but having just been to Blackburn I can't afford it, apologies to all of you super fans out there... 

Doesn't matter so long as you're not asking for a beamback. Wouldn't be fair on the fans who are actually going to the games unless it was a sell out.
