Through reports are we could be looking at 500k for the spurs game . Would be great to get emails back to Wembley . Ok think it would be a low crowd at Wembley but with 10k S. W. A in attendance it would be amazing at least the club are getting some mutch needed cash in . The question is whether they will use some in Jan to get some bodies in. Then the other question is who do we need . I can't wait for this one

Unsure any replay would be at Wembley, heard Milton Keynes mentioned.

The selfish part of me does not want a replay as I am on holiday that week and will miss the game. :(

However, financially it could be a game-changer for the club, wherever it is played.

Think its good that the club have done the tickets to encourage people to get to the boxing day game . I'm gonna struggle as I'm working boxing day. So let's hope we have some tickets so I can get one on the 27th

Am I right in thinking it’s 1 ticket per person for the spurs game?

I have a season ticket in the kop so I’ll be ok but sometimes take my son who doesn’t. If it’s unreserved I guess that means I can only get one ticket when they come out for ST holders and have to get another when on general sale?

Yes its one ticket per . If you include season tickets 4200 sold for boxing day . Club saying if you have a boxing day ticket you get first priority when the tickets go on sale . This is b4 the general sale . Can see me missing out as can't get one sorted till 27th

This is a sensible and fair way to distribute tickets to non-season ticket holder. Not only does it give the genuine fan a ticket but it also boosts the income and the home support for the Morecambe game. A win-win-win. I am surprised this is not the norm. A long time ago, I remember buying my ticket for a similar third-round tie at a reserves match which attracted over 5,000 spectators!

Been for ours today. Arrived at 12 .20 and queued 1 hour 47 mins!
MP was around speaking to fans and apologising for the delay, pound coins rolling in his eyes! And why not.
Rather suspicious cokney gent was escorted from the queue as he had neither a season ticket or address ID.
Hope the club are vigilant when the tickets go on general sale.

Had so much hassle with log on details etc Ian, club even changing my ID twice, I played safe.
So pleased you've got yours by pressing a few buttons :).
Anyway, spotted a couple of nice shirts while in queue!

So the stadium holds 16500 . We have got 14000 tickets for the cup game . That means 2500 broken seats or in other words that means £45k lost at £18 each shear madness not getting them sorted the cowshed holds 2500 and spurs have been given 2000 crazy

There will be plenty of tickets available when they go on general sale. I only wish season ticket holders got to reserve their seat. I know they tell people to respect reserve seats but that doesn't always apply when some kopite decides he wants to sit in my seat!
The maximum number of tickets we can sell on restricted sale is the number who attend the Morecambe game. I can't see the gate for that match being higher than 8-9,000, which will leave 3-4,000 tickets for general sale. I think AM and Sparky will be fine.

I don't think it is to do with broken seats AM. One third of the JK Stand is now out of bounds due to segregation and the new disabled enclosure has put a lot of the seats in the Bebington Paddock out of use. The capacity is reduced further because the seats are unreserved, other than in the Main Stand. Even where there are broken seats, replacing them costs money and is not worthwhile when we are averaging 6,000 for league games. These big matches have only come round very occasionally in the last decade.

To be honest, I think the regular 5-7,000 fans will have no problem getting a ticket.

The Spurs game would have to be a sell out. With their tight fixture schedule we can but hope that Spurs give some of their better players a rest! A draw would be great.
