Wonder how many tickets we will shift for this one!

We are now the Mini,Burnley the Ferrari...we're falling without a Parachute.

After proclaiming this game bigger than Jesus (and The Beatles) and giving it the big call to arms, I don't think I can actually be arsed if the team are as gutless as yesterday.

They're not quite a Ferrari.

That Souness 5-0 team would still spank their current mob.

Wee with the willy we've got. And no, I'm not taking the pish.

Fully expect this to be another painful episode in the slo-mo car crash that is Venky's tenure at our once proud club. Sadly there is a clear gulf between us and them and whilst we might get a bit excited about the prospect of playing premiership level opponents in a cup competition, the reality is that we have a bunch of journeymen whose commitment has already been called into question, are operating under a mystifying alchemical tactical fug on and off the pitch, and barring an absolute miracle, the turd dwellers won't even need to get out of first gear to roll emphatically over us.

Ok it is a knockout competition, and the sheep worriers have form in recent years for slipping up. So, let's hope we stick it up em and cause an upset - I don't kid myself that there'll be any riots in six-fingersville if Rovers win, but I do hope we can at least hold our heads higher than of late on the Thursday morning for all the right reasons.

Feck em.

Feck Venkys. Backwards stawt.

Why are tickets not on sale for this yet? Just over a week until the fixture takes place, 3 days since it was announced the game would be on the Wednesday, 4 days since the draw was made. I envisage a record low crowd for a Rovers v Dingles game which I suspect is exactly what the 'authorities' want too.

My cynical side says we were waiting for the TV fixtures to be announced.

Now that they have, and we're not one of them, they will probably stick a few quid on the price.

I really don't want to have to go to this game. The thought of getting turned over by them is deeply upsetting. It's bad enough being 2 leagues below them however I avoid areas of the internet where there fans gloat however having to listen to a couple of thousand of them lording it over them really upsets me.

West Ham vs Cheltenham selected for TV on the Wednesday. Sky sports are a joke man. I was attending anyway but I hope the club don't charge stupid prices, they've got an opportunity to get a lot on now if they make the prices reasonable.

Not on TV so expect daft prices and a gate barely over 10k.

I'm daft for getting myself hyped for it, but its engrained and deep rooted.

Walk on prices for this will likely be hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.

Just keep thinking back to their 2 cup fiascos last season. :D

Think 18 quid for season ticket holders is pretty reasonable too be fair, should have made it 18 for none season ticket holders too mind.

Apparently it is if they are in 1875.

Can't imagine that many None season ticket holders will be in the 1875 but I might be wrong. If we somehow win this weekend hopefully that can help get a few more numbers on.

The way it's panning out and the short timespan for tickets I can see only about 7k home fans :(

I think there'll hopefully be a decent crowd on with it being the holidays still and priced like that.  Ok £18 not the cheapest for a League cup game but for me I can take both kids for £6, I'm sure others will do,  They often miss the midweek games but will be no issues with school etc so hopefully can get a few in.

Mowbray and his players don't deserve the support based on the first two league games of the season.

Interesting to compare the price to Sheff Utd for same round:

Blades v Leicester, League Cup, Tuesday 22nd August.

Adults - £15

Concessions - £10

U18s - £5

(Even better for season ticket holders - £10, £5, and £2).

I generally think we are pretty good for prices on the whole, United game last year where I agreed with the price and some didn't but does seem a missed opportunity a little.
