Attendances

Recommended Posts

Proper boycott by them it seems, fair play to them for sticking to their guns i'm sure they are having superfan v boycotter debates right now !

Rovers bean counters won't be happy but a valuable lesson might be being learned - Home fans always come first you simply cannot rely on away following from anywhere to help hit your projections -

Perhaps there'll be a massive late surge in sales as Bolton fans celebrate the end of the Anderson era and welcome in their saviour Bassini?

Just hope the season ticket offer is out before the Swansea game and Mowbray doesn't respond by selecting Smallwood with Evans....

Incidentally I know a few who decided to go last night, think they'll shift a lot on the door

Reading their forums I doubt it very much!

I live in and amongst them unfortunately!

They've unsurprisingly been disenchanted this season to the point where i'll ask them who they've got tomorrow in the pub on a Friday, and they'll look back at me and say no idea. 

They don't care much for the football but the ones who like a good day out have seemed to check the fixtures after seeing the takeover, realising that the game is on Easter Monday, realising it's a good opportunity for a piss up!

 They did the same with Wigan not so long ago and shifted a good 1000 or so on the day. Or so I was told, probably added an extra 0 on to it knowing them lot.

Waggott will love that, especially if they all turn up after 12 o clock

I'm at a crunch match in French Ligue 2 between Lorient and Troyes who both currently occupy play off places. €18 for 2 adult tickets. Just turned up 2 hours before the match and bought tickets. That's the way to entice people in

Aye, 'tis cheaper in France, from experience at least. Paid about 12 euros for a lot of Lyon home games a few years ago when studying there. Behind the net but still.

Bon match !

Another Waggott gem last night 

‘Away revenue was below what was forecast’

We could’ve told you that in August, ‘negative brfcs’ leads the way again (oh and the Darwen End closure was for nowt then? Or just the excuse you needed...)

It'll take him a while to get to know the natives and how it rolls around Blackburn and some comparisons to Williams are plain daft at this stage but it took JW a while to get to grips with it.  He certainly wasn't saint John in the early days and even later circa 2005 ish he presided over a big hike in ticket prices that saw crowds drop despite signing Bellamy and the new found hope under Hughes.

He saw sense eventually so maybe SW will.

Football support a modern, growing phenomenon in England: EFL declares record attendances at clubs across its 3 divisions, total crowds 18.3m, highest in 60 years, since 1958-59, an era before TV coverage.

Its also been pointed out to him that the huge clubs increasing capacity and well as some traditionally big supported city clubs dropping down the pyramid completely skew this and in truth if you scratch the surface of propaganda away the picture is startlingly different.

All it takes is some clubs outside the Prem who can fill or near fill their stadia to be having good seasons year on year i.e top of the champ becoming Prem x2.  Us ourselves boosted crowds in league 1, Sunderland will trump that home and away this time and the likes of Bradford City still hanging around in that league when the size of them they are a championship club in all but present position.

Propaganda like that is everything that is wrong with football it starts at the top of the Prem and finishes a third of the way down the championship in the eyes of the suits and that's only because of parachutes.

It's propaganda that the League rely upon to try and prove what a jolly good job they're doing. Never mind Bolton and Bury going bust, Coventry having no ground and Blackpool being run by an asset stripping convicted rapist. All they are interested in are numbers on a balance sheet. Record sponsorship and media income and more people watching due to smaller clubs replacing bigger ones in the top division.

All the while showing that numbers through turnstiles becoming less and less important to a club's standing in the divisions.

Replace Dingles, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Watford and Palace with Leeds, Villa, Sunderland, Sheff Wed and Derby and the numbers wouldn't be as impressive.
