What time difference does make a difference though?

Folk have to draw a line somewhere. We used to kick off at 7.30 remember.

Getting away from the place isn't particularly quick, and if you're returning to east Lancashire then time can march on.

The drawing of the line is the thing. Otherwise, let's pretend we're Spanish and kick off at 10.

I'd genuinely be interested to know how you came to that conclusion.

Crowd was 12,500 wasnt it? They brought 400 or so? How many STs did we sell in the end?

That's Horwich's point. If they've sold 10000 season tickets then that's the starting point, irrespective of how many of them turn up to games

I'm not sure I follow.  If the crowd really was 12500 as announced then that's 10k or so STHs turned up + others.  If 5k STHs didn't attend as he's suggested, then we missed out on a crowd of 17,500 for a midweek fixture v Doncaster. I dont see it

ST holders are included - whether they attend or not

They count the ST holders even if they don’t go.

Season tickets are counted whether they attend or not so the attendance doesn’t really tell us much.

With @medwaywhite’s missing four, two working, one living in York and my lad not doing midweek games we had 8 unused season tickets last night out of our 12 that sit around each other. In reality there’s not a huge amount that can change that - 23 games is quite a commitment, after all. The key is the club continue to prioritise ST holders so that people continue to feel appreciated enough - and remain financially prudent - to carry on renewing regardless of missing games over the season.

Yeah I get all that and one of our group was missing last night too.  Midweek fixtures in December when you're on a poor run of form are notoriously low attendances.  I'm just perplexed at the assertion that as many as 5000 STHs were missing.  Certainly, i imagine there were very few casual fans there last night.

Just remembered…

Our PA system is bogwank and needs an overhaul.

Supporters trust should be bring this up.

It wasn't fit for purpose years ago.

I thought it was way too loud. The PA bloke was shouting though, I’d suggest that could be part of the prob!
