DavidMailsTightPerm Posted January 19, 2010 Share Posted January 19, 2010 YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT!!!!!!! You get 22,000 plus for a home game at Ewood so there ARE the fans around and they DO turn up sometimes but you could only sell 12,000 tickets for the home game of the semi final and can only sell 2,000 for the 2nd leg with FREE travel. So this on you doorstep thing doesn't count cos you DO have fans in the area! They just choose not to go. I think you miss the point - when you have a huge catchment area - if some decide not to go others take their place. Also - our performances at the moment are poor - until the weekend we hadn't won a match since November - and we have one away win in what feels like years. Yes they choose not to go - but nobody can ignore the impact on attendances of not winning matches. Can I ask a question - in some way making a point - but also curious - why were your averages attendances less than 20k in the mid to late eighties - and hovered at less than 35k for much of the 2000's ? Is your capacity not over 42k ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
