That was a big down side to last season the lack of respect to Cup tournaments Hughton showed by keep changing and resting players just because it was a cup game where did it get us, I'm not one who buy's into this it was because of the amount of games being played Players are fitter to day than they ever have been yet players 20 years back managed to play the same amount of games week in week out for me this resting of players for cup games is something inherited from foreign managers who don't take cup games serious regardless of what country they have been in.

So yes go For it LEE thumb up

This will be a big test of your ticket pricing theory.

Amazingly cheap tickets, no school, lets see how many turn up tomorrow night.

I recon closer to 8k.

But 10k - 12k makes a mockery of the 'cheaper ticket price' theory. At those prices it should be up near 15k

They be better off charging £10 adult £5 kid. The gate would be 10% less but they;d make far more money. This is the problem they have.

I think there will be more.

The cheap prices will encourage fans to pay on the day.

So expect a few thousand more thumb up

12000, plus one. I'll be there, but not at the George. I will be arriving late and have to queue to pck up my ticket. Typical cock up in the ticket office.

While I think of it. Isn't this the League Cup in another name? If it is. It's not a Mickey Mouse Cup Kev. I remember Wembley.

Been told that we're hopeful of a gate around the 10,000 mark tonight after a surge in ticket sales over the last day. #BCFC.

Andy Walker announced yesterday dinner that only 5500 had been sold but as of midday today he said just over 10k had been sold thats without the pay on the gate so could well be 12k plus
