So the police made sure that teams like Sunderland and Newcastle U21 and Pompey/Saints U21 were kept apart in the group.

Why did Northumbria Police not insist on keeping SAFC and NUFC U21 apart in the Knockout Stages, which is due to be played in Early Jan

Where do you draw the line? Clubs that progress in a competition can only kept apart so long.

They can just play the game behind closed doors if they think it's going to kick off

 Stoke City are to donate their share of the net gate proceeds to help cover the cost of damage done at Vale Park estimated to be between £75-100K. Doing the right thing but they would probably have been ordered to anyway by the FL.

some clubs contribute to reduce away ticket prices maybe stoke should of upped the next few so the law abiding stokies have a incentive to get rid of these fans.

I'm sure that those running the Checkatrade Trophy breathed a sigh of relief at Manchester City U21's defeat in the quarter finals tonight. All very well letting these youth sides play in the Checkatrade, but I bet the organisers are fully aware that one of them getting to a Wembley final would have battered even more the already-ridiculed image of this competition. Not to mention the knock the final attendance would take.

A shame for the Man.City U21 side though, as I got the impression that they were the one U21 side that was taking it all most seriously.

And what with some (ahem) 'massaged' draws in earlier rounds already, will anyone offer me odds on Friday's semi-final draw coming out as...?

The other way round, and with the "big" clubs away from home (but still kept apart) -

Bury v Portsmouth
Bristol Rovers v Sunderland

Matches to be played w/c 25th Feb.

Would this years final potentially be the biggest Final, Portsmouth v Sunderland, potentially be the best attended Final in the recent history of the Competition. The last time the Final attracted over 75,000 was Stoke v Bristol City and has only gone over 70k a handful of times in the history of the comeptition, last in 2017

Fair play to Sunderland, from what I have gathered, they have showed some respect to the competition by putting out sone strong sides

I think that's the least the fans deserve after what they've been put through.

The 2019 Checktrade final could be a bigger draw for TV viewers than the FA Cup final depending which 2 teams get to that one. Both portsmouth and Sunderland have a huge fan base and a full Wembley is almost certain

Wasn't the Full Members Cup the now discontinued Simod/Zenith Data Systems which was contested by those clubs that didn't make it into Europe. I remember Palace beating Everton in the ZDS final.

Yes, a different competition, but not the Full Members Cup. I think he was referring to the Carabao Cup Final, played on 24th Feb this year, as an example of a big game that didn't fill Wembley.

All tickets (as near as damn it) now sold out. Both sides put their last batches on sale on Monday morning and sold them all.

Apparently, the EFL is now hunting down all the Check-A-Trade plumbers/sparkies/chippies they've dished out complementary tickets to and are trying to claw back some of the ones that won't get used. Pompey have said that this might mean they might get a few extra tickets, but describing the possible quantity as "in the tens"!

The record attendance for the final in this competition is 80,841, at the 1988 final between Wolves and Burnley in an old pre-all-seater Wembley.

The largest attendance for the final in this competition at the new all-seater Wembley is 74,434, at the 2017 final between Coventry City and Oxford United.

I have not seen Pompeys sales in the last couple of days, though I had seen suggestions they had only sold about 32k upto the end of Last Week, whereas Sunderlands original allocation was marginally less than Pompeys, but SAFC managed to get some more tickets to take there allocation over 40k.

So, I am guessing we are looking at something close to a sell-out, it should outdo the 2017 Final and looks on course to also beat the the '88 Attendance

Out of interest, if Sunderland and/or Portsmouth get promoted to the Championship, whats the chances of there U23 teams getting invited back next season.

Would Sunderland and/or Portsmouth be the first clubs in the history of the Competition to go up to 2nd Tier as Winners of the EFL Trophy and compete in the Following season

Pompey have sold out their full allocation of 40,300 tickets for Sunday's final. I'm going to guess that Sunderland were allocated about the same number?

The local paper is saying that this will be the biggest attendance of Pompey fans at a match in fifty-one years, because the allocation is that much bigger that that for the FA Cup finals in 2008 and 2010, or the semi-finals, or the 2008 Community Shield match.

Apparently, the last time Pompey might have had a bigger number of fans at a match was in March 1968, when 42,642 people attended an FA Cup 5th Round match at Fratton Park v. West Bromich Albion, the year West Brom went on to win the cup (though this figure would have included an unknown number of away fans, too). In that season's FA Cup 4th Round replay at Fratton Park, 44,050 attended the match v. Fulham.

Useless fact of the day. The 2019 Checktrade final is only the second final of this competition to be contested by 2 former winners of the FA Cup, the previous was Wolves v Burnley in 1988. It is also only the second final to be contested 2 former League champions, again the previous was Wolves v Burnley in 1988.

And an attendance of 85,021. And possibly the smallest ever contingent of complementary prawn-sandwich munchers at a Wembley final...

And TheWavendonian texted me to say that the BBC’s evening news didn’t even mention the final score in their football round-up, choosing to talk about the much smaller attended matches at Celtic, Cardiff and Liverpool instead. Not that I give a toss! Cool

Fantastic support from both clubs. Looked on TV as if Sunderland had a substantial majority of the supporters at Wembley. Must have been close to 50,000.
Only Barcelona vs Espanyol had a larger attendance in Europe this weekend.
