Bit of perspective derby have sold 2100 tickets for Portsmouth on a Tuesday live on sky we wouldn’t get near that, if we go up our support will seem very average compared to others some big hitters in championship 

If we were all hell-bent on crowd sizes compared with others we’d surely want to be relegated to EFL 2. We’d really be massive again!

Portsmouth has a very similar population to here.

Average wage is around 6k more.

They have only one other "big" club near them.

I think our support stacks up excellently. 


The same radius across GM/Lancs that takes in 19/20 professional (ex), clubs around us, only takes in one or two others for a lot of these clubs we’re comparing ourselves with.

Takes the likes of Portsmouth, Ipswich, Norwich, Derby, Middlesborough down a few notches on the ”massive” scale for me.

As you say our support in that context stands up very well indeed.
