Knowing our luck, they'll bring their lowest away crowd since records began

 

Chatting to a leeds lad who was one of those who got their south stand filled and making a noise again , he was also in the meeting with cellino when the fans were trying to buy the club...........He reckons there is unrest amonst their fans and that we have over estimated by giving them 6800.

19723 v Plovdiv our first ever european home game

15905 v Zenit St Petersburg

19288 v Marseille

 

18932 v Rabotnicki

10229 v Aris Salonika (and about 1500 of them)

26163 v Atletico Madrid @ £10 a ticket

25664 v Sporting Lisbon @£10 a ticket

 

These are cup attendances in our peak years against teams we'd never played before at prices cheaper than the Leeds game.

 

Anyone who thinks we'll top 20k is on crack/

Just out of interest how many Bolton fans do you expect to be on that day?

For the Leeds game? Not many more than last night. I'd say 16k in total.

 

I think we've had home league games hold up relatively well because of season ticket sales. I don't think many will see this as a glamorous tie. It's £20 most folk won't have budgeted for.

 

Last night was Tuesday and a tenner, this is Saturday but it's £20. I reckon we're looking at similar numbers of home fans.

 

I'd love to be proved wrong but I can't see it.

Saturday 3pm kick off and a quite attractive fixture more kids will go and Saturdays always bigger crowd than midweek games think it'll be decent crowd.

Fair play to the club, get the most we can, every penny counts.

 

Bit of segregation over the first few rows of north end of west upper and Leeds could sell close to 10k, might be a useful £150 to £200k that.

 

Home team doesn't keep all the cash, is it split 3 ways? FA, Home team Away Team?

Villa at home in semi final of league cup. What was that attendance? - I remember it was pretty shit

That Tranmere game was in 2000 when we hadn't become an established Premier League club. 5 or 6 years before that we'd been averaging 10k. Since then we've had 11 consecutive Premier League years and really built up our support base - especially with cheap kids tickets. All of which is now in danger of being thrown away by the cunts who are destroying our club.

All the cock waving Leeds fans do about attendances. I'd laugh my tits off if they couldn't shift that Edited by tomski

When anybody tries to defend our turnouts v villa and tranmere the alarm bells ring

I'm offering some context. I was as pissed off as you by those crowds. I couldn't get off work to make it up from London for the Villa game so was especially pissed off by that one. Made the second leg. And I drove up and back through driving rain for Tranmere at home. I just don't think slagging folk off for not going does any good. Most on here do go anyway. I'd rather look at ways of building our support.
