Update on the Attendance watch this season:
Attendances so far this season and comparison with last seasons corresponding doo dah (technical football term)
PL: Blackburn Rovers home... 32 319 (Blackburn brought 250 tops).... v Blackburn last season at home (Sept): 34 309... our first home game last season was v West Ham with an attendance of 36 604 So down on both + puts pay to me wondering if some of this is holidays etc.
LC: 2nd round v Hereford 21 508... We joined in the 3rd round last season, that was v Blackburn Rovers and attendance was 18 753. So up but for balance, Hereford brought a big following, 3000-4000?
PL: Wolves ... attendance 30 776... Last season (played in March whilst flirting relegation), attendance 38 965. So down BUT it was a 3pm kick off and not on tv.
PL: Newcastle 34 248 last season 37 090 (played April on a Sunday, 4pm for Sky) ((This home game just played, I believe Newcastle had 1000 taken off them for problems at the Darlington game))
