This week the club should make the decision to put Bees fans in the Ealing Road end, to hopefully enhance the atmosphere at a game we just have to win. The Monkey hanger supporters surely can be housed in Braemar Road, and also change the status of the game, to ticket preferred rather than all ticket.

Rotherham did this to Brentford a few years back to maximise the home support and on that day they got promoted, surely for 1 game this should be considered.

If it's all-ticket wouldn't it be wise if BFC announced that fans could now get tickets for the Ealing Road if that is what they are planning. Nobody at all would surely reduce the atmosphere.

It is all-ticket.

However I'm not sure if Ealing Road tickets are on sale or not. From what Greenholme Bee posted recently it would seem that it's being kept "in reserve" and will be used for BFC or Hartlepool supporters depending on sales.

I agree. We should aim for minimum 10,000+ gate on Sat, the less restrictions the better IMHO :sorted:
Might be worth wheeling Mr Dyke out this week for a bit of extra media exposure to maximise interest levels :idea: :wave:

I'd pay again to stand on Ealing Road despite having a Season ticket for New Road...Bees at both ends cheering the goals in...

Would love to watch the bees from Ealing Road once more, not sure how that would work with regards to getting the ground.

I presume we'd get in via Braemar where the away fans would also get in the ground, not going to happen i fear.

WisBee said:
Is that legal?.......619 away tickets doesn't sound too many to me, shouldn't it be a percentage of our capacity, or something along those lines?

But if only 500 or so Hartlepool fans buy tickets it would be fine to give them 619 tickets, we could seat them all in Braemar. If they wanted a bigger allocation then we'd have to give them more.

Yes, but if they wanted more, where are they going to go within the ground, if BFC are selling out the rest of the ground to home support on a piecemeal basis?....shouldn't they have been offered more in the first place, then if they didn't take up all their allocation by say Wednesday, BFC could then sell off any 'unwanteds' to home support?....I can foresee all sorts of stewarding problems in this scenario, and it doesn't bear thinking about what problems might arise if results on the day do not go our way......

Can't they just put a few more away fans in that huge expanse of seating they usually leave empty for segregation? I really can't believe we actually need quite such a huge gap between fans.

Will the demand be there for tickets though? another 2 thousand to sell? Hartlepool should bring a few, its a massive game for them too.

Because they can't have Hartlepool fans turning up on the day without tickets if they sell the Ealing Road to Bees.

Bearing in mind that Championship games are being played this Sunday, Fulham are away and Chelsea are at home to Man Utd, surely there'll be floating football fans who will turn up on the day unaware that it is all ticket, it's crazy to me to turn away possible additional income!

It can't be done any other way, it will be fine though you wait and see.

why the hell is this game still all ticket ?? surely the only important thing on saturday(aprt from the obvious 3 pts)is to get as big a crowd as possible into GP..all ticket just makes for big complications and a small crowd...7500 at best whereas if we put the away fans in breamer rd and throw the gates open to anyone we might just get 10000 , still below capacity...remember boxing day..big away following ..cracking 1st v 2nd good weather and STILL less than 10000...cmon brentford lets announce monday am that all ticket restrictions lifted(apart from away fans) and if we cant then tell us WHY ????

I raised the question simply because I thought it was in the Football League rules somewhere that the opposition had to be given a percentage of the ground capacity......and as for you saying '**** em, we've been sh*t on', sh*tting on them doesn't make it right; consider also what your reaction would have been if Bournemouth had only allocated 619 tickets to BFC for the last match of the season....I don't think you would have thought that it would have been their right to do so, along the lines of it was time for AFCB 'to think of themselves for a change'......

Didn't Rotherham only give us a few hundred tickets a few seasons ago for their last home game of a promotion season??

isn't that just in the FA CUP.
i remember man united only giving 45 tickets for away fans while they were having the ground done up a few years back.

and newcastle only let us have 900 (or maybe 1,100) in 1992/93 - that's less than two per cent of the capacity back then i would have thought.

just give hartlepool 619 and make them pay £17 instead of £11. WE ARE GOING UP!

Because Hartlepool have to be satisfied with their demands first. If they turn around and want 2000 tickets I expect we will have to give them to them. Once Hartlepool's demands have been satisfied it can be made all ticket for away fans and Ealing Rd sold to home fans.

This is of course all my own personal speculation and Brentford being Brentford who knows.

I realise that Alex but dont understand why it`s all-ticket in the first place .

Even if the away arrangements stay as normal (personally i think 600+ seats will satisfy Hartlepool) a bigger gate would arise by the game being "ticket preferred" rather than all-ticket. Diehards and regulars will make sure they have a ticket, its the casual/floating fans which will up the attendance :wave:

There is a percentage ruling for the Premier League and F.A. Cup but not for the Football League. Premier clubs have in the past sought exemptions when building works took place at their grounds.

With a temporary turnstile in Ealing Road, this narrows the exit which should lead to a capacity reduction (that's what we've always been told) and where do the Bees fans go for a **** or a bite to eat?

Have the authorities agreed to this? and if so, why can't we do this every home game then?

Just heard that it won't be all ticket for pool fans and they are only getting 671 tickets, so I guess that means bees fans will be invading Ealing Road!

hartlepool will ask for as many tickets as they will sell, any tickets they ask from us which are not sold i think they will lose money on. so if they asked for 2000 tickets (which is too much) they will ask for a reasonable amount that they will sell. Therefore not losing any money.

But afrter reading this thread could someone tell me wheather ealing road is actually for bees fans for this match or not?

Away fans get 950 tickets or so for Hartlepool.

I suspect there were a few Forest scattered about but no more than 200.

It's Tuesday now. Surely the Brentford FC Information Minister is going to tell us all something soon. How long does it take to ascertain how ticket sales are progressing?

I don't want to buy advance tickets unless I have to. My understanding is that they are not being posted now in any case, which is no good for distance supporters.

You can arrange to pick them up on the day, a friend of mine has just called and done that.

But what happens if you have already purchased tickets for Brook Road, my normal viewpoint, but wish to watch from Ealing Road should it be available?

I first started watching on Ealing Road, and might like to make a sentimental return if it is full of Bees.

it would be more practical to give hartlepool all of ealing road if they wanted it, then have home fans in the corner of braemar so it is easier to segregate
