I heard yesterday that the police had restricted the numbers to the Sty to only 800.
We are of course entitled to 2,800 there by Premier League rules and as of yet the Villa have said discussions are still ongoing with just over 2 weeks to the game.
I am guessing if this is true that Villa are holding their line and demanding we get as close to the full allocation as we are entitled to but the police are having other thoughts. Any cut to our allocation below what we should get will only benefit the Blues in what will be a vital game for both sides and we need every Villa fan to be there to gain the points !
Of course numbers at VP were restricted for Blues fans and as I said on here that was wrong but 800 is a draconian measure for trouble that we did not start as we never invaded the pitch.
Hope villa win out but not looking hopeful is it ?
EDIT 28/12 – Villa have confirmed initial allocation is 1500 and are battling to increase, total disgrace that we have been cut like this – LINK
