Not sure he's as knackered as it may seem. Came with an injury last season but got himself right for this. Started the season well. Several players have had injuries so far- it's par for the course- and Dempsey's game is more combative, which perhaps exposes him to more impact injuries.

Wasn't this latest one as a result of a hospital pass to him by MJ too?

Record against the top 8.

W 2 (wycombe, pbro)

D 2 (Ipswich, Barnsley)

L2 (Sheffield Plymouth)

 

Think we were pretty unfortunate to lose to Sheffield and Plymouth, deserved at least a point in both. But by the same token, we could've easily lost the Ipswich game and Pbro only scraped a win.

Glad we got the pre-Xmas win vs Exeter but they asked us fuck all, expect Derby will be more of a test.

23,000 sold currently...Including the packed out away end.

Current post premier league record is 24,844 Vs Blackpool in 2013

Will be some atmosphere let's have it! 

That's a great figure for all us attendance nonces.

But less than 18k home fans is about 1,500 less than v Exeter, and there was no atmosphere in the home end.

Numbers doesn't equal atmosphere, loads of factors impact, the ideal is going a goal down and coming back to win.  Or just winning 6-0.

Depends on how many S/T holders actually turn up.

Agreed.

I get why he needs rotating to protect him, but in the big games he plays.

This is a big game.

I’m not sure he’s selected just because it’s a big game, he’s more selected on how the opposition are set up and if his skill set suits the team we are playing against.

Away fans being close to IL1/2 should ensure a good atmosphere. They're too far away most games, been so much quieter this season in CC.

Was at ticket office earlier as wanted an extra seat near me for Derby (been empty seats all season but show taken online), lad in office reckons there’s a few hundred concession tickets not even scanned this season

Apparently away fans are in the upper tier so they can utilise the bedroom packages as it can’t be used when bottom tier in use

I would have expected more on to be honest don’t we have around 17k season ticket holders ? If so that means we have only sold less than 1,000  tickets on general sale if approaching 23k sold 

Think it’s 14k ST.

Might be wrong.
