Away end sold out

The away end for the cup tie at Sheffield United in the Jessica Ennis stand has now sold out. Congratulations to all those who got tickets: I am sure it will be a day to remember whatever the result.

This turnout has been achieved despite the kick off time and travel difficulties. I know that the coach being organised by the West Sussex supporters leaves at 4.50 a.m.

Some fans have been critical of those who turn up for such a tie, but don't, for example, go to an away game at Blackburn. But for some people going regularly to away matches is financially prohibitive, especially if a long journey is involved. Others have health or family reasons that prevent them from attending. As a home game at Charlton is an away match for me in travel time, I don't feel that guilty about no longer going to away games.
