    It looks like I will have to sit at home tomorrow as despite my best efforts to crack the system I have been unable to get a ticket for this game.
    Its a shame because the game at Rochdale was so much fun, a great atmosphere, great result and a great night out. Now it looks like we will exit the cup in a very disappointing fashion which will leave a bitter taste in the mouths of many of our supporters. I know I will not forgive Brighton for this. Hopefully it will make the club even more determined to win the game and knock them out.
    What should have been a great day for all of us has been completely ruined. Thanks a lot Brighton.

    we deserve a lot more tickets and its a shame to see how many of our fans have been disappointed. you would expect a league 1 club to respect us but clearly they only love themselves. best atmosphere at rochdale and even with our 845 there will still be a good atmosphere

    Everyone needs to give their collective head a wobble, I reckon. The situation isn’t ideal, far from it, but we’re in danger of making ourselves like like a right bunch of spoilt school kids.

    The FC United fans are starting to sound like MUFC fans, ‘we should have more tickets because of who we are’! Every goal at Rochdale was followed by a pitch invasion, even if they were good natured this is still a ‘security risk’ would they do that at Millwall, Leeds or Cardiff?

    “The FC United fans are starting to sound like MUFC fans, ‘we should have more tickets because of who we are’!”

    Bizarre stuff.

    Or maybe they just wanted the same allocation as any other club would have received?

    It’s all there in the FA Cup rules that even arrogant Brighton fans could understand.

    Good luck to FCUM in the replay.
