Here we have brought together all the key stories, tweets and comments in one place, and have also looked at how the Carrow Road tickets compared with the seven other Capital One Cup matches this week.

  • The demand for Spurs should`ve been greater than for Doncaster & Scunthorpe, at the "right" price. Demand for Villa will be immense. Will be interesting to see what happens price-wise. Good Will is a perishable commodity.....

  • Ethered. Price elasticity of demand is one issue. Good Will is invaluable, too. (précis).

  • NCFC needs 14.000 to attend a game to break even and pay for its staff players and obligations, their finances look fairly healthy in comparison to two years back. Canary supporters turning up in all weathers, their behaviour being tops in the league and their support for the' kick racism out' campaign, all this needs to be recognised. Considering the current economic circumstances people find themselves in, it would be wise for the club to freeze the ticket prices, I'm sure that fans would appreciate it, everyone likes to be recognised and we have to see the fans included as part of a whole team, they are part of NCFC publicity efforts.

  • There`s this "price elasticity of demand" thing. The tickets vs Doncaster & Scunthorpe clearly couldn`t have been that much in demand even at £10, with fans anticipating a "reserves" outing. Maybe even free entry wouldn`t have filled the ground? Dropping the price to £20 quid might well have increased the gate vs Spurs, but predicting demand is a retrospective thing! I suspect the demand to see a full-strength City team take on Lambo (and his team) could support a price INCREASE from £30 and still see a full house? Good Will is hard to put a price on, though. At the moment the Club expects to fill the ground for all "proper" fixtures at the standard prices. The Villa game is certainly in the "Proper" category! Hoots seems to treat this competition with respect, not disdain. That`s the sort of bloke he seems to be. Bless him!

  • Was it £10 or £15 the club charged for the first two rounds? In both games there was a similar sized crowd to the Spurs game. Does this mean that "staway fans" will flock to games with reduced price tickets but only for big team opposition. If the ground had been less empty at earlier games perhaps the folk complaining about higher price tickets would have more of an argument.
