But Man City's side was virtually empty (slight exaggeration) as it was 'just another game' to them. On the train back a Man City fan virtually patted me on the head in a patronising way saying 'well done for getting here, you're a small team', then saying it was half empty their end as no one gave a s**t about the FA cup at that time & they were always going to win (fair point).Not always. In 2014, Wigan received 22,807 tickets, whilst Arsenal got 42,882.
However, from what I can see, when the game is between two PL clubs, allocations are equal, or very close to it. In 2019, both Man City and us were allocated "approximately 33,000 tickets".
Speaking to the club yesterday, there was no mention at all of any kind of ticket allocation issue.
I really hope that no Grimsby fan felt that way when they were here, I didn't feel that we were dead certs for the game & I loved the haddocks & seagulls. I hope that we made them feel really welcome, whilst hoping they didn't think they didn't have a chance. They did have a chance and they played well, I wouldn't have been annoyed if they had kicked us out tbh! Obviously very happy that they didn't though!
I guess you can't say what you asked the club yesterday & what their reply was?
