·         Only 450 tickets sold so far for Huddersfield on Saturday...

Appreciate it is nearly xmas and horrible up north, but how many clubs charge a tenner for a ticket?!

Considering the boys and the gaffer need as many of us behind them as possible at the moment, feel it is a bit of a poor effort really

(NB. I know WBA is a shorter journey, but guarantee lots will be wanting to travel there quite gladly in January....)

I'm guessing the time of year and distance will put a lot of people off going but not as much as the god awful football we have been serving up of late!

I take my hat off to anyone stupid enough to make the journey...

It's the hope that drives us all on . The disappointment we've learned to live with .

"Horrible up North"!!!!!!!! yes that right Hebden Bridge, Stoodly Pike, Bronte Country, the Penines, all considerably less aesthetic than Hartcliffe, Kowle West, Southmead LDubs, St Paul's, Easton etc.

Spend some time in Yorkshire before you slag it off, where else can you be surrounded by farmers markets, a canal at your  back doors and snow capped hills my the fourt floor bedroom. It's far from horrible here kid!

I'll be POTD. As soon as I read about entry for a tenner I booked a cheap train ticket.

If the game's called off for any reason, I'll have a day of looking round West Yorks. Pity my son's no longer at Huddersfield Uni.

If the fixture planners had been kind we'd have had Huddersfield away just days after Rotherham away. Last time in this Division we were at Huddersfield on Saturday and Bradford on Tuesday so the team and those fans could afford it, could avoid two long trips and stay in the area.

Huddersfield/Derby isn`t too bad. Pity there`s no decent racing up that way Sunday/Monday/Tuesday though otherwise I`d be staying over. Cheap as chips B&Bs this time of year too.

The match day price is good, but going by CATS it's still £24/£29. It would have been a nice gesture for the club to knock a chunk of money off for this trip, if not for everyone at least for the poor buggers who went to Rotherham. (No I wasn't one of them, and I'm already doing something else on Saturday anyway)

 I'm hearing on the news today petrol/diesel prices are about to fall even more too. Hopefully cheaper prices will filter through soon then.

Very good point. Some clubs lay on free coaches for at least one away match per season. A gesture like that, especially after the Rotherham and Blackburn games, would have been good Christmas PR for the club and a reward for the fans...

For those of you travelling up on Saturday, I was in Leeds today and the M1 50mph section passing Sheffield etc is still there, in fact it seem to be an almost permanent fixture. I am sure most of you factor such things into your trips but thought I would just remind you.

For 3 of us, the tickets are £25.....the coach fares would be £72.

I think I'll hire a car for the whole weekend for £30 less.

Surely at only £10 per ticket, the "thousands" who boycotted Sheffield Wednesday purely because of the pricing (as many were claiming was the case) should be all over this one..?

what better opportunity to show that well priced tickets will attract supporters and encourage more clubs to do this more often. 

In reality, it's quite possible that more will have gone to Sheffield for £39 than will go to Huddersfield for just a tenner. 

Were people using the price as an excuse simply not to bother..? Surely not..?!

It's difficult to compare because of our form and that we're in December now. Has Sheffield Weds at the beginning of the season been a tenner we'd sell it out. 800 or so after POTD isn't a bad effort considering time of year and form.

I hear you, but, all those who claimed to be boycotting purely because of price, have the perfect opportunity to stand by their claims and principles here. I bet you the vast majority of the supposed thousands that would have been at Sheffield had ticket prices been lower, were infact talking nonsense.
