But we only sold out at West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea due to taking reduced allocations.

Man U was only a 2.5k allocation.

I think Everton sold out didn't it at 10 pound a ticket?

There would of been over 10 home sell outs. Top 6, Everton, Wolves, Cardiff for definate.

And those three sold out very late in the day so the allocation we took was the correct one.

Pretty sure Fulham away was a sell-out too.

We sold out at Burton but most the home fans never bothered to turn up to see an historic victory over a premier league team.

Although home support has remained fairly constant the novelty of the Premier League was certainly short-lived as far as away support was concerned! Last season Accy Clarets ran 41 coaches to away games, transporting 2050 fans. The previous season it was 74 coaches and 3780 fans. :o

Two seasons ago we were pushing for Europe, last season we were attempting to avoid relegation.

At Christmas we looked like it was the drop for us, so i'd say hardly surprising the numbers tailed off in such a way. Don't think you can say it's the novelty wearing off.

Possibly not but we'll see this season.

I think the boring football away from home puts lots of it certainly did me.

No, I was so bored of the boring football we played against Southampton to bother watching us away again until the United game.

I won't be going away again until Dyche can guarantee unboring football and we go toe to toe with the oppo and try to win every game 3-0 playing champagne football.

I'm quite prepared to put up with some boring/poor performances away from home for the joy I get from a few good ones/wins. Anyone who expects us to out-perform most home teams is never going to be happy!

The lack of sell outs certainly shows the current ticket policy is the right one.

Correct, until the infrequent travelers decide that they want to go to a game but can't get a ticket and then the policy will be criticised!

I think they all turned up...and brought a friend.

That's Burton's problem.

I criticise, as a frequent traveller, who sometimes falls foul of the non travellers, with loads of home only points, claiming the tickets.

The away section definitely sold out. The empty seats were probably in the neutral section next to it.

There were possibly some empty seats due to the late switch from Saturday to Sunday but it was definitely sold out. (There's a thread on here somewhere about it being sold out, I remember suggesting people buy tickets in the neutral section.)
