Wigan have an allocation of  1,653. On Thursday there were 300 left and Wigan fans had until yesterday to get them as it’s all ticket. So they aren’t going to be far away from selling out

Out of the 2 home games this is the one where I think we could make 5 changes and win but then again we don’t want to ruin the momentum built

We didn't sell out on Boxing Day in our last season in this division either.

The way we're playing we should be selling out easily. We're struggling.

Same team for me with the exception of HRK or Sakho in for Jrod. He's looked out of form for a good few matches now.

Same team for me, Morrison and HRK might feel hard done by, but they will get a chance again soon and they need to be up for it.

Are they selling on Boxing Day morning?  I'm sure they'll all go if that's the case.

I would expect so. It'll be interesting to see if they put Block A3 on sale, A6 only 16 left now.

I'd freshen it up slightly, I'd prefer to make a couple of changes in each game rather than say 5 changes in one:

Johnstone

Adarabioyo
Dawson
Hegazi
Gibbs

Phillips
Barry
Morrison

Robson-Kanu
Gayle
Barnes

Myhill, Mears, Brunt, Harper, Hoolahan, Sako, Rodriguez

I do worry about Gibbs and Phillips, both with histories of muscular injuries, getting through all of the games and would look at resting them both vs Sheffield Wednesday I think. Dropping Livermore wouldn't be a reflection on him as such, it would be rest and Harper would make the bench ahead of him as we need a home-grown player whereas Hoolahan is in there as an offensive option.

Disappointing really. I don't know why we haven't but we really should've sold out by now.

Just had a quick look and totted up the following figures:

Smeth (11 in A6 , A3 yet to go on sale and probably won’t now)

Halfords 17

Brummie (including the Woodman Corner) 95

East stand (including Millennium Corner) 39

Total remaining tickets from those currently on sale = 162

I don't think it's disappointing at all. I actually think it's pretty good when you factor in who we're playing (no disrespect to Wigan). I'm just hoping those in attendance are in full voice on the day.

COYB  8) .
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Plus there’s going to be a 25k plus crowd 3 days later

I’m presuming block a3 will be on sale on the day

I've said this before. I think either v Wigan or Sheffield Wednesday Townsend will have to play 90 to make sure we don't have Gibbs over do it.

I would play Morrison and Barry with Livermore on boxing day and rest Phillips also.

Whilst I have been advocating dropping Rodriguez 2 changes would be sufficient and hopefully wouldn't damage momentum

I'm at a family event so this will be the first game of the season I miss, think we should win, but you never know with fixtures this time of year - they always throw up funny results.

Guess that they will set up to do exactly as they did at their place. Will play very deep and always try to battle with a packed defence. Hopefully we can break them down and get an early goal. Otherwise this is likely to be a bit of a struggle.

Sold out now.

The odd return may go on sale so anyone after tickets it's worth checking every now and then. No news up to now on whether the club are opening A3 section.
