Leeds fan in peace, with a pair of binoculars, pliers and a change of clothes

Alioski is inconsistent but playing better now. We will miss Philips, Douglas, Pablo for sure. Saiz got homesick and was class on his day. Cooper will be back at centre back. Also out, Beradi, Bamford, Brown. I still expect us to have bags of possession but at home we are struggling to break teams down. A serious question on your support ? You’ve always had a loyal home fan base but never travel well. Like I said £40 on Friday is bad, but generally when cost ain’t involved you never take big numbers which surprises me ? 

Pot and kettle this season.

I was surprised when you brought less than 2,000 out of your allocation of 3,000 earlier this season.

Don’t mean to be funny but we have sold out every allocation in minutes this season. We sold the allocation you gave us. For away games we sell to season ticket holders first, then members who get 20% after that. We have none going on general sale ever. Norwich who we play start of Feb Sat eve 5.30 same prices as you for Friday have sold 1,500 on the first day of sales. I think your at about 1,200 ?  Mentioned prices but Derby should sell more than Norwich for an away game surely ?  You brought 952 last season which let’s be honest is poor. There you go Leeds fan no longer in peace !

It means nowt. They're just sussing out our numbers and mood before deciding whether to attack the old and disabled on their way back to the coaches again.

I have no problem with Leeds fans - they are usually quite friendly. But their stewards and police? Got a lot to learn about customer service, in my opinion.

Bear in mind also that the population of Derby is probably about half that of Leeds.  On a good day at home we get 30,000 from a population of about 300,000 in the city.  Based on that ratio, if your population is say 600,000 (I haven't checked it's just a guess) then is your home gate 60,000?  I don't think so...LOL

We are Derby COUNTY and the population of the county is over 1 million. It's a myth that Derby supporters all live in the city. I think about 3 in 10 do.

Getting toward 1300 now

To leeds fans we sold towards 3k at norwich city.

I’m on about what Norwich have sold for the game at ours on a Sat eve 5.30. 1,500 is decent for them

Our away following varies for whatever reason. In the case of Leeds away, the legend has it that you go there at your own peril. Basically, we chicken out, me included, whereas we'll travel much further to 'more friendly' grounds. 

I was shocked when you had over 1,000 empty seats at pride Park. Maybe the police restricted away numbers for the Leeds game only.

Why does it matter how many away tickets we sell? This game is a Friday and on TV with high ticket prices. The whole ''we take more fans away than you do'' is about as pointless as ''x is a bigger club than x'' it's purely a dick measuring competition, who really gives a poo?

Yea, they will let forest have 3000+, but will restrict dirty lids! I don't think so.
