Argyle's allocation of 1152 tickets sold out in just 90 minutes this morning.
That seems a very odd number ? Assuming c 350 seats, then just 800 in the away end. Has D&C plod called for a reduction in capacity in the knuckle draggers pen ? Surely if the capacity according to the ground safety certificate is greater, that's what it should be ?

Of course it could be the WBA story all over again, with the Slime keeping the extra tickets back off sale, to hand out likes of Porky 'n' friends instead ?

I would imagine it’s open.
It would be a real shame if one block is shut given the demand their will be for seats for this game.
Agree, and its already segregated by the fact its a separate stand. There would only be any bother if our nobs decided to go in that section to be closer to their fans, just like they do at home park in zoo corner.

But what has happened to the missing 150 tickets ? Surely we gave them c 1300, ie 350 seats in the former Flybe Stand and 950 for the away end ? Is the report of a 1152 ticket sell out an ARGYLE statement ?

Presumably we will be reimbursed for the full 1300 ticket allocation, but don't the Slime fans at least deserve to know if Argo have siphoned off 150 tickets for "grace and favour" purposes ? If they have done that, no doubt the 150 will have come from the 350 seats, leaving their genuine supporters just 200 to fight over !

Why not give them half the BB as well FFS? :mad:
Silly idea - the fewer Cornish knuckle draggers allowed to infest our fair city the better in my opinion.
Giving them the BB is completely different you bell jar. Its our home end, the largest standing terrace in English football and I would never want Argyle fans to stand there, it would be a disgrace. Even with a full cleanse and disinfection it would still be stained.
However, giving them a few more seats to maximise revenue makes complete sense to me. I don't care if they bring 2 thousand fans, its just more of them to leave disappointed.

We are the grandchildren of apes, not angels
Not entirely without precedent Foggy.
I recall back in the 80s we gave the BB to a visiting side (Sheff W???)
And, on one hateful evening in the 90s (whether by accident or design) half the bank was gifted to the Cornish.
Finally, and more recently, when the Saints visited us they "graced" the railway side of the bank - and, shamefully, seemed to be treated like visiting royalty by the police and stewards.
Personally, I think ALL the Cornish should be "kettled" in Haldon Woods where they can spend the afternoon swinging from the trees - much more their style.

Oh, and ps, while I might well be considered a "bell jar" at least I hope I'm still capable of delivering a "clear retort". :p

A clear retort indeed!
I have a feeling it was Burnley that the bank was given to in the 90's as they were celebrating promotion. Wouldn't happen these days there would be uproar, and rightly so.

Argyle wouldn't dream of entering the bank these days uninvited.

I'd wouldn't be so sure about that ! There's already a post on their ATD forum, explaining how to get buy tickets for the BB, and whenever we play them we see their fans being led from the BB and politely escorted into the away end ! Maybe we are being a bit too soft on them ?

HAHAHAHAHA The I'm a bigger fan than you syndrome really brings out the moaners
I love the way they are going on about that fans who travel to AWAY games should be prioritised, they obviously haven't worked out yet that PAFC make nothing out of their away support financially, it's the HOME club that keeps ALL the loot!
Lovely to think that PAFC supporters are clambering to put the best part of £30k into ECFC coffers! Bring it on.
