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

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.

The county thing is a bit misleading though. People in North staffs live closer than those in North Derbyshire. The former is likely to be a Derby fan and the latter support one of the Manchester teams. 

I'm Brum born and not very well bred, but have followed the Rams since 1970.

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. 

I can assure you we log on 10.30 and it sells out 10.35. We also have about 600 away season ticket holders which takes a big chunk out of our allocation. Blackburn gave us 7,000 and it went in minutes.

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

So are you trying to say we did not sell out for our first away of the season ? Your claim is laughable

Looking forward to the game on Friday against a much improved Derby since we last played you. We’ve hit a bit of a rocky spell but we’ve still played well. Same time we need to get back to winning ways. Good news for you, due to injuries, suspensions & players departing we will have 7 missing from the game earlier in the season inc our best player Hernandez.  I’ll actually take a point now. Game as been sold out a while now at our end & I hear you’ve sold about 1,200 ? Pricing is a joke so I can understand people staying away and with it been on Sky. Should be a great atmosphere 

Yes a point seems a likely outcome. Hopefully an entertaining game for all.

Well done. Who cares? What are you trying to prove here? Why are you arguing how many away fans you take on another club's forum?

Look at the numbers and give me one good reason why they are lower than many others when you have never been restricted at Derby before?

I agree; quite a few Nottinghamshire fans too. My point still stands - our catchment area is not just Derby City.

Not arguing with you, it was a loyalty game for Leeds fans. You had to have been to something like 15 games the season before to initially qualify. The demand was so high.

It didn't make sense, unless Derbyshire police had some Intel that made them reduce the numbers. Bizarre, when they give forest 3,000.

Official figures showed that were over a thousand empty seats and I remember the away section being only 2 thirds full. 

I'll take your word that you sold all the tickets given, but struggle to find a reason for you only having 2,000 allocation.

Can't argue with that but it really doesn’t make sense unless you restrict us to a similar amount and we are responding in kind. We have given everyone else around 3,000.

We did charge quite a bit less than you are charging us though.
