Very, very disappointing but honestly not surprised.

Yet again a very small minority of idiots have ruined it for the regular fan.

Not the biggest surprise really, in fact we have a thread on here from a week or so ago.

Hopefully the game goes off without any issue on and off the pitch, I can accept defeat but not with suspensions for people losing their heads over one game against a team with no real relevance to us.

I'd say let's only give them 250 tickets for our home game but that'd all be 200 too many!

Hopefully this will mean no crowd trouble because that is the last thing we need again this season.

Not surprised it is all ticket, however I find it a little strange that it states no segregation will be in place.

Given the farce and folk devil making from last season this was always going to happen. What surprises me is the paltry amount we've been given. Hopefully they won't sell out. And come the playoffs, should we have to return, we'd have augment to justify a more respectable amount. I'd argue for half, but the league will have to finalise such things, should it happen.

However this goes back to a point I've referred to over and over again, considering their ground only holds 1400 and according to the fa guidelines they need a minimum capacity of 1950 to play at step four, what exactly are they doing to avoid automatic relegation at the end of the season? And as for promotion, you need a capacity of 3000 at step two. It beggars belief that with all their backing, and the media love in, there has been no mention of developing what could be a pretty tidy venue (assuming they flattened the concrete stand and started from scratch).

I'm not surprised we've got so few tickets - the less Darlo fans the better for them. It's disappointing, especially after they gave 350 tickets for each of their FA cup home matches, but I assume it complies with the league rules.

I am surprised that it isn't segregated. It seems ridiculous after the incidents of last year.

Here is a conspiracy for you. The camera crews from the BBC are filming Salford again at the moment for a second series (Sorry Alan Partridge just pops into my head for some reason).

What if they want to appear to be 'outnumbering' us this time out.

They could just not show anything about the Darlo game...they have that power as well obviously!

Been thinking the same thing, especially given what the fa are doing to Truro City. (Spend £100K to upgrade by 31 March or get relegated even though they will not be playing at that ground next season, article about it in last match prog.) Salford hardly need extra time to raise the money!!!

They may be a BBC hobby club, and our promotion rivals, but I totally
agree with this decision.
The people to blame are the once a season drunken coachloads
who came down from Darlo last season.
I just hope some care is taken about who gets the 250 tickets.
Its annoying cause I live just 15 miles away (hmmm!) and I behaved
perfectly well the last 2 seasons.

Go to Salford and buy one of their tickets then. It's unsegregated.

There'll be more than 250 Darlo there on the day, i know some who live in the area and will be getting this week and as mentioned, some have already got some on the way to Marine.

Barmy decision to make it all ticket and not segregated.

Yeah it's utterly ridiculous. If they had segregated it too it would have seemed a reasonable response to the incidents of last season. Instead, what they have done, in my opinion, seems purely an attempt to reduce the number of Darlington fans. If the troublemakers want to go they can still go and cause trouble. Not that I think they will actually go this year as this year it's not as big a game.

Doesn't actually make any difference to me as I'm not going and I never was going to go. I just hope we come away with a point or three!

One worry that I have is that if/when there is any trouble at Salford, then this gives the FA their chance to throw the book at us (again) perhaps even invoking the suspended penalty of 12 points deduction. Further conspiracy would be that Salford fans start it up, especially if there is no segregation, as this would help their cause and effectively remove our chances of making the play-offs. So let's make sure everyone going is on their best behaviour, club should be doing our own stewarding of our fans (with a video-cam handy for evidence). Best of all, support the team and bring home 3 points.

After the deliberate debacle of last season they will not receive a penny of my money.

I'd rather pay double to attend our home fixture.

How do! The decision to make the game all ticket was not ours. It was made for us by the Football Association following the disturbances both during and after last seasons game. However, I find it completely baffling that having had this decision made on our behalf we are not then putting segregation into place which somehow defeats the object of the whole exercise. Not that I believe in segregation at our level but the safety of spectators - and match officials - is obviously the main contributory reason why I personally think it should have been made a stipulation. For obvious reasons I'm also at a loss to understand why the match isn't being played on a Tuesday night to endorse the F.A.'s stance on the matter. Let's hope for everyone's sake that the day remains an uneventful one. At least off the pitch!

I for one would be very surprised if trouble kicks off at this game..None of the idiots will get any tickets as they will be well controlled,
I am surprised however that they have not put in any segregation which is the norm for all ticket games.
It will be interesting to see if we are allowed to stand on the grassy bank at the ground, as we were told on several occasions last season (at HP) that league rules forbid this.

The Ruling on the suspended 12 points made it clear that it would only apply IF we fielded another ineligible player.

Maybe a good way to turn this into a positive for us is to donate the ticket price to the club, if you cant go.

Definitely, as have just seen someone like Mike Ashley talking to someone like Dan Burn in the Deacon! Can anyone confirm??

The fact that there is no segregation makes it look very much like it's not about limiting the chances of any trouble and more about simply limiting the number of people cheering Darlington on in a big game. However you look at the decision, the net result is that a lot of genuine Darlington supporters will not get the chance to follow their club in an important match when there will be more than enough room to accommodate them in the ground. Salford has to be one of the least welcoming non-league clubs in the country. I really hope the lads shove it right up their arrogant Class of 92 arses.

Did anyone really expect anything less than this from Salford? Their Chairwoman is an absolute wrong'en. Regularly making a fool of herself for those that are on social media.

If Salford are blaming this on previous events then why don't they segregate? How do they know any troublemakers won't get hold of tickets?

Plain and simple, it's a spiteful act to stop a high amount of Darlo fans going down. Preventing the majority of well-behaved fans from seeing their team. Puts the club in a situation with who gets allocated what now.

I was planning to go to Salford for a rare away trip, but think it would be fairer to let someone go who follows them to all the away games. So I'll stay at home and donate the ticket price to the club.
