Checkatrade Trophy match v Portsmouth (7th Nov)

I’m over for work and have the evening free so I’ll most likely head down to the Valley.

Am I right in saying they will probably only open the East & Jimmy Seed stand for the match?

Anyone else planning on attending?

    Cheers!
  • Well that's one person going. I might make it two.
  • Prob be more Pompey than Charlton.

    Probably open the Jimmy Seed for away fans. They won't for Fulham U23s.
  • I'd be surprised if the attendance makes four figures for the Fulham game. Prob will for Pompey as their fans are a bit obsessed.
  • Prob be more Pompey than Charlton.

    That would be a good question for the historians.

    “Has there ever been a match played at the Valley where the away fans outnumbered the home fans?”
    Millwall felt like it in the 70s

    Yes....definitely Charlton v Chelsea twice in 1983 !!

    Charlton v Leicester ( I think) when we were playing at Upton Park ?

  • Definitely outnumbered by away fans in quite a few games during the Selhurst days.

    Certainly remember going to a couple of games v Liverpool, one of which (might have been 1988 or 89) i think was sold out where they seemed to have double the amount of fans we had.
  • Only ever went to one "home" game at shitehurst park, Kettering in the cup, for some reason, sure they outnumbered us.

    Anyway, this is irrelevant, as the question was out numbered at home - The Valley

    I’ve posed this question on a separate thread

    I remember walking towards the ground and seeing loads of Kettering coaches.

    The oppo had been saying that they were bringing 8,000 fans - I'm sure the official attendance was given 16,001.

    Did they call it Operation Selhurst?

    Although a lot of Pompey fans have been boycotting this comp as a matter of principle re the U21 aspect.
  • Night game against Millwall early 70s. We lost 0-2

    Well, they were parked up behind The Arthur Waite stand and all along the adjoining road.
    I had to walk past them all on the way back to the car.
    As all you could see were coach after coach, yes I did count them as I walked past.

    Would have been easier to look at the numbers in the coaches' windows and see what the highest number was!
