Wouldn't expect anything less from our amazing support! Funds prevent me from doing this one but I bet it will be a right laugh. All the hotels booked up and Red and White everywhere. The Geordie's are a good laugh as well.

Are there any Saints fans who won't be going because they couldn't get a ticket? I struggled.

Believing that this was one match for which getting tickets would be a formality, I booked trains and a hotel weeks ago, and will be taking in a visit to friends in Ripon on the way.

When I failed to get a ticket through the usual channels before they sold out, I started to panic. I spoke to the ticket office this morning and was told that, having sold the initial allocation, Saints asked for more but NUFC refused saying that it would sell the remaining tickets to their own fans.

The 2 questions are, how many tickets did Saints initially ask for (the ticket office wouldn't say) and why wouldn't NUFC send any more when Saints asked for a second allocation?

It's a 52,000+ stadium. Comparing all of NUFC's home gates this season, games seem to fall into 2 categories:
1. sell outs (Manure etc.)
2. 48,000ish (Villa, Norwich etc.)

Assuming we fall into the latter group, does NUFC really believe it will sell out? We'll see!

I don't blame the club, it has to make a decision. What gets me is the whole process which, like so many things in the modern game, gives scant regard to supporters.

I thought clubs were obligated to offer a certain percentage...however if we turned them down thats probably our (the clubs) fault..

Seems crazy that we can take more to a sell out game at Reading with a 24000 capacity than we are allowed to take to SJP with 52000..bizarre.

Warrens, the things is, there is a maximum amount (10%, I think) but the away club can buy a smaller quantity if they wish. The problem is, once bought, they're non-returnable, so the away club has to make a big decision. I can understand, under the circumstances, why Saints didn't purchase more than they believed they could sell. What seems odd to me is that the away club doesn't have first say in getting a second batch.

Another thing that irks me is that these things aren't sorted much earlier so that fans can have their tickets before planning their travel.

What with Sky, Europe etc. Of course it isn't always possible - cup replays, bad weather etc - but sometimes thing are moved or not finalised until it's too late to sort arrangements out.

Anyway, looking forward to discussing stuff over a beer up North.

I used to like Newky Brown in my college days, don't think I could cope with it now.

May have to give it a blast for old times sake this weekend.

Luckily I did manage to get a ticket for Sundays game, should be a great Saints win! As long as we can keep a hold on Moussa Sissoko - a job for Jack Cork - we should be fine.

Beer Monster, Taunton et al .....

Our plans will be these:

Reach Newcastle around 2.30pm on Saturday. Drop bags and head to town for 5pm(ish) rdv with Warrens and RisingSon at the Indigo Hotel (which is between the ground and the station).

After that ...... who knows. Maybe a pub for a drink and dinner.

Does anyone know where to have a pre-match drink? Yorkie mentioned one to avoid (Duke of Northumberland or something, was it? Can't remember.)

After the match, we have to dash to catch the 4pm back to York and onwards South as Monday's a school day for the lads.

I've always found on previous trips the Strawberry at the back of the Gallowgate end to be excellent a decent mix of home and away fans but gets rammed near kick off. Not been there since we were last in the prem so not sure if it's still a decent choice

PUBS in The Toon :

Would def reccomend near the Ground at Gallowgate.... The 3 Bulls Heads (cheap meals all day too upstairs) either downstairs or upstairs .... or the Goose next door... both will have the televised match on for after-match drinks... plus only 5 min walk to St james. Avoid Duke of Northumberland or the Black Bull (opposite where coaches drop off) ... to be honest most pubs are ok with away fans tho as long as your not giving it the big one.

Your def spoilt for choice..... Lounge & ONeills are opposite the station, just rund the corner is the Long bar and Head of Steam, like I said the town is full of great pubs and no hassles on a match day. As luck would have it Im back south now so cant make it but doing the double over the barcodes would give me immense pleasure. Just try and take it easy up the 20 flights of stairs to get to your seat...... Pass the Oxygen!!!!!

I'll be with the two (not so) little Strassies, so, on Saturday evening and pre-match, it'll be something fairly gentle for pub grub and beers.

Are you there overnight or just on Sunday?

We land around 5 on Sat, Mrs has booked the Hotel (I don't ask but we will be central) so we will have a meal out Sat, wander Sunday am and then go to the Match

We are making a break of it till Tuesday so would be good to meet up, Sunday lunchtime maybe easier if our flight is delayed etc

Anybody got a spare ticket?

Live in Durham and have been waiting for this match all season. Typical.

Haven't been able to get to any away games this season due to work, which is a pain, as normally been going to over a 10 a season.

Quite possibly, I am heading up with a couple of friends but one might not be able to make it. I shall keep you posted.

I have two spare tickets if you are interested but probably easier for someone to take both, rather than separately?

If you have 2 that would be great, as my girlfriend wants to go to, but would be happy if I could just get a ticket for myself to go.

Hope you all got tickets sorted. Although I can't recommend this, if you didn't, there could still be a few empty seats available to anyone who is registered on the NUFC site.

Taunton (others), I will try to post a message on this thread once we know where we're eating/drinking on Saturday evening.

First stop will be 5pm(ish) at the Indigo Hotel to meet Warrens and RisingSon.
