anyone know if there are any spare tickets in the homesdale for the match Vs the Wombles? as although we are against a team with div3 standard support, but it is a london derby so the gate will be pushing 20,000 (hopefully)
i've been out of the country for a while and this is my first palace game since Dougie munched Pompey at the end of last season. so i've got that first game of the season buzz

Get there early, the holmesdale lower sold out for Stockport so I reckon it will be tomorrow (my neutral mates had to pay 25 quid to sit in the main stand, happy, not).

The Stockport game was our first home match of the season. That's why the lower stand sold out. This fixture is far less glamourous and you'll probably get a ticket if turn up at 14.59.

My estimate for the attendance is a whopping (!) 18,000 , with about 2000 - 2500 squatters present.

I'm guessing the 'gate' will again be a rotating metal mill encased in bricked cavarn apply. Once again I will no doubt be searched by the same steward who has searched me and asked to see my season ticket for the past five years (either his memory is sh!t or he fancies me), and the guy will put my smartcard in the machine facing the wrong way for the nth consecutive match this season.

Wombles support will look almost impressive as they will fill the end of the Arthur Waite, then you remeber you are looking at all thier support and not just the away crowd, sad. However I am looking forward to a bumper crowd 17524 Exactly.

I doubt if there will be that many Wimbledon fans at Selhurst Park this afternoon...

I thought the 20,009 attendance was pretty impressive.

Considering there were only about 4,000 freebies in the Arfur this week...

How'd they work that 20,009 out.

Both the Holmesdale and the Whitehorse were full, there was 1000 spare in the AW and about 1,500/2000 in the Old Stand.

That gives us 26,400 - 3,000 = 23,400!

Or is it me???
