    Practically a home game for me, never been to Turf Moor before so that'll be an experience.

    Who's going and how many do you think we'll take? Got my tickets through the post yesterday and I think I'm in Block 20 which is right in the middle so depending how they start selling the tickets, it looks like were taking a fair few.

    Our bogey team but I reckon we'll win this one.

    At £36 a pop, I doubt we'll take big numbers.

    Was £24 for u22 but I still thought that was pricey given its Burnley away and they hardly have the best facilities to charge that price for.

    Saying that, didn't their owner up the prices and charge them like £50 for a home ticket?

    The home fans and the away fans have to pay the same(for the same standard seat), so they'll also be charged £36 for our game.

    But it's not a seat, its a plank with a line painted across it.

    Been to Turf Moor a few times – but not for about 20 years.

    Proper ground - or at least it was last time I went.

    I think last time I went we were in the seats behind the goal, when Paul Fewings scored.

    But, it used to be ace on those high terraces under roof – lots of noise generated.

    I didn't go for a few years then decided to take the gamble and go in our Promotion Season. Well chuffed we actually beat them.

    It's horribly uncomfortable, then again we spend 90% of the match stood up so that doesn't really matter.

    I remember reading about their ground being ripped apart by thousands of Celtic fans in the early 70s.

    The Anglo-Scottish Cup was before my time, but I've always thought it'd be a real asset if taken seriously by clubs (perhaps at expense of League Cup).

    Obviously, never gonna happen.

    And the good news is that after missing four games through injury Dean Marney is due back this weekend so should be playing against City the week after.

    It's not uncomfortable at all. You actually get more legroom there than at more modern grounds.

    The price is a ripoff, but it's one of the better away grounds to visit (apart from the fact we always lose).

    I cant see Burnley winning 4 games all season so it should be a comfortable victory for us.

    This could well be the best away day of the season, I'd normally refuse to pay £36 but I'll make an exception this time.

    Proper city crowd going to this one.

    We've only got 100 tickets left and most are single seats for anyone wanting to go, get in there quick.

    I see they have 3 equal top goal scores so far this season with one each, and one of those is Boyd.

    True but you cant say that on here. There are no proper fans; those who only go away when its Anfield and Stevie G are just as good fans as anyone else...

    Better fans really considering they have the trauma of two teams to support and care for.

    They also have the inconvenience of finding a new team to support should one of them turn **** or just turn somewhat disappointing.

    Quinn's winner in 12/13 sticks with me as the moment I was convinced we'd go up*.

    *Even though the loss at Barnsley shook that a bit!
