    Not so much the goal but the reaction from Morecombes Captain and keeper, they came over to the side the City fans were sat and started giving the linesman earache and us City fans were laughing and singing McLean scores with his hands, which made them more angry :joy:.

    After both being brought down! Both easy tap ins if it weren’t for being swiped out (I get the irony of using McLean and easy tap in in the same sentence of course)

    I get the impression most think this game is a nailed on certainty for a City win.
    I'd exercise a little caution. Morecambe have made a career out of being bottom half of league 2. But that doesn't' mean they're a walk over.

    Home end is an option although I'm not sure I'd be able to hold in any celebrations should we score so I probably wont bother with that. Normally theres a few who can't make it in the last few days before a game so hopefully there'll be a couple available.

    On the flip side it does mean they lose on a fairly regular basis though if they are always knocking about down the lower reaches.

    No negative thoughts or messing about, this is a game we can and should go and win - followed up by 2 home games which we should win. Then we’ll be top #onourway

    Hi All,

    Just wondered if anyone has or knows of a couple of adult tickets available for me and my old man? Thanks in advance.

    In my head I always think of this fixture as one of those we should win, but often struggle. Looking at past results not necessarily the case but main thing is that we definitely should approach this one confidently but sensibly. On paper, if we want to be up there at the end of the season these are the type of games we need to go and win, regardless of the omens attached their season so far.

    We’ve got hungry players banging on the managers door for a starting shirt. Even with a bunch of injuries Bowyer has a selection headache - a good place for a manager to be in. Let’s hope we are prepared and set up professionally and build on last weeks performance.

    Not tickets spare but there seems to be an option to buy through the Morecambe web site in the none ‘away’ part of the ground. I understand the City section is sold out. However Morecambe’s average gate this season is 2,120, https://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/...s;jsessionid=A2E8BB1567EFB96F560C3A1FFBC98A0A yet the stadium capacity is 6,335 (2,599 seats) https://www.footballgroundguide.com...html#awhat-is-it-like-for-visiting-supporters

    So if you say the average away support at Morecambe has been around 320-120 then that leaves a core group of active Morecambe supporters of around 2,000.

    If City has over 1,600 tickets sold https://www.bradfordcityfc.co.uk/news/2019/october/morecambe-tickets-sold-out/ then simple arithmetic suggests that there should be around 2,500 surplus capacity!

    If you can chameleon like blend in, then there should be no problem. I would avoid wearing anything obvious that associates you with City and have a warm inner glow if we score/win.

    I would avoid a part of the ground where you are likely to attract difficult home fans.

    Seems madness that they have not moved some of their supporters to other areas of the ground for the game, just like we do with the Midland Road from time to time!

    FYI - we’ve sold nearer 1,750 than 1,600.

    I too am amazed that they haven’t given us the terrace opposite the main stand - we did request it.

    If you go on the Morecambe website you can buy tickets to print out or download to your phone for the terrace along the side of the pitch for £16. If you didn't act like a tool you could probably watch the game stood at the end of the ground the Bradford fans are at.

    It might be easier to get tickets if you can use an address that isn't in Bradford however.

    Question answered Rod.

    " Seems madness that they have not moved some of their supporters to other areas of the ground for the game, just like Hull City did against us"

    But it does seem odd, see you all there.

    You can also get an e ticket sent to your phone which is a Q code you scan at the turnstile.
