No they haven’t mate but all the dates have been announced the Monday only has Pompey arsenal on so I’m guessing that’s on tv. On the Tuesday we’re playing along with Liverpool v Chelsea and reading Sheffield Utd . Chelsea Liverpool is more or less guaranteed to be on so that rules us out I’d say. Sheffield Wednesday v city Leicester blues and spurs Norwich all on the Wednesday night , my guess is city Wednesday being on. Derby Man Utd is on the Thursday so that will be on the box

With our game being played the same night at Chelsea Liverpool , you can more or less rule us out being on tv

 they were announced yesterday lunchtime.

the tv games are Arsenalv Portsmouth, Chelsea v Liverpool, Man utd v Derby and Man city v Sheff wed

Just a quick reminder for any who haven't read the OS or are worried about ticket availability for this game.

'Smethwick End season-ticket holders have until 5pm on Wednesday, February 12 to purchase a seat elsewhere in the stadium. The seats of all other season-ticket holders will be reserved until 5pm on Wednesday, February 12. Season-ticket holders who wish to purchase an additional ticket may do so from 9am on Thursday, February 13. Members can purchase a ticket from 9am on Wednesday, February 19. Tickets will then go on general sale, subject to availability, from 9am on Monday, February 24'.

There's bound to be a number of season ticket holders who for whatever reason will not be able to attend this fixture. I anticipate a fair few green seats lighting up on the seating plan come 09;00 hrs on Thursday Feb' 13th, some of which may well be in pretty decent spots.

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.

Stunningly original choices for the TV.

There could be three massacres there, not great TV for the neutral. What's happened to the screening of the games where they might be shocks? Money...

In defence of the tv companies there isn’t many great ties to chose from is there , those were always going to be the 4 picked . Albion Newcastle Leicester blues reading Sheffield Utd and Spurs Norwich are the 4 not picked. Are any of those ties really pickable for tv ? Don’t think I’d watch any of them.

Pompey arsenal is a great cup tie and derby Utd will be interesting

This game will sell out. I'm getting 9 tickets next Thursday.

The demand is there at £15 for 2 games from Wembley vs a prem team.

I thought the same but current sales are poor.

10,012 tickets left in the home end.

3871 in the east stand
4842 in the Brummie
1299 in the Halfords

I'm with you I thought this would be a sell out.
But if the ground holds roughly 26,000 and Newcastle have 5,000, then we have only sold half of the available tickets in the home stands.

2 games from Wembley and a winnable tie at home. Our squad is good enough to fight on 2 fronts and a historic double certainly is possible.

i just hope we can make it a good gate and take it seriously as if we were to win, 90 minutes from wembley then.

Still 3 weeks, and still plenty of games in the meantime.

I reckon interest will gather and ticket sales will pick up towards. I'll be going as think we've got a chance (less than 50% admittedly) even with our second string vs their first.

£15 going upto £20 on match day is a bit of p isstake to see the reserve playing. Should have been a tenner and kids for a quid.

Both clubs have to agree a price so it could be that was the middle ground.

You can only buy 1 additional ticket per season ticket holder so if you are buying more you will need to assign it to another season ticket holder.

Is that all the Smethwick holds nowadays?

Fair play.

I know they are a one city club, but for a Tuesday night that still is impressive for them to sell so quickly.

I would imagine either side of the Smethwick has been segregated accordingly

2389 tickets sold in the last week.

7623 remaining now with just under 2 weeks until the game. We'll do well to sell them.

They gave some more tickets to Newcastle taking their allocation up to 5050. Still leaves 450 seats as the stand holds 5500. Probably got some segregation at the sides or the first few rows haven’t been sold

Derby got 5,351 in Smethwick End in 2017, so must be more available?
