Man sent off last night, and the player that got subbed off to make the tactical changed booted off with the manager 

2-1

Lovely to hear… nothing against Wednesday fans but the club flouted FFP for years and as such I’m hoping anyone but them and Derby don’t go up.

Could be our biggest home crowd for years this, 17/18k home fans with 5k from Sheff Weds, 22/23,000+ 

Last night was the busiest I seen a Tuesday night in a long time. The feel good factor around the club is fantastic at the minute 

As Tuesday nights go, a very healthy crowd yesterday

At the risk of being pedantic, there was never nearly 18k on last night.
Tickets/ST's sold yes, but bums on seats no.

you're probably right, but for me, it was telling that 18k minus morecambe - sth leaves a very healthy walk up

Santos plays every League game he's available for.

as well as aimson played last night, he just cant do what santos does

 

its not just that santos can hit passes nobody else can and will have the ball wherever he is on the pitch, the other cbs can go wandering as hes fantastic 1 v 1

Can get ST holders not all being there yet due to holiday season.

But it just felt busy to me, was queuing up for ages with so many supporters last night, only just made kick off

Santos or Aimson ?  I'm a huge Santos fan, he is the quicker of the 2 meaning he can recover quickly & also cover across the defence, & is better on the ball either dribbling or passing.........but...last night & v Salford & at Vale , Aimson has been our best defender, winning his tackles & headers, getting blocks in & anticipating danger. It would be really harsh to drop him.

Dunno, i'm glad it's not my decision. ( maybe horses for courses ? )

Think I am right in saying that saturday should see the biggest crowd since FV took over. 

Whilst we are never going to compete head to head with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday for numbers - they after all have huge swathes of South Yorkshire Derbyshire and Lincolnshire etc to draw support from , and dont have three massive premiership clubs on their  doorstep, i am already encouraged by how well our support is improving year on year and in particular how it is holding up against those other North West clubs who currently  ply their trade in the championship.  I know its only early days with just 2 home games played apiece , but if we can maintain the momentum on the pitch there are some good reasons for optimism with our crowds 

  Average Home Attendances

2 Bolton 17,291 15,439

4 Blackburn 14,643 13,478
5 Wigan 12,626 10,397
6 Blackpool 11,175 12,104
7 Stockport  8,919 7,126
8 Tranmere 5,763 6,872

Great stats. We are simply the best supported in the North West outside of the 2 Liverpool and Manchester clubs. 

Let's consider our average this season, with some larger gates(Saturday) family days and potentially promotion charge with around 18/18,500?

That average would be near 20,000 in the Championship, with considerably larger away followings on average.

Tremendous stuff.
