The FINAL Attendance Watch Last Season v This

Updated: Attendance Watch For Villa Games

Update on the Attendance watch this season:

Ok, been able to finalise this. Comparison between attendances at home this season and last seasons corresponding doo dah (technical football term). Will try to continue this next season, hopefully with a new manager and much brighter figures.

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))

LC: Bolton 22 261 last season the second LC game was v Burnley at home 34 18 OUCH, that is some drop and a half.

PL: Wigan 30 744 Last season 36 293 (played May)

PL: WBA 34 152 Last season 37 015

PL: Norwich 35 290 not applicable last season, v Blackpool the then new boys 34 330

PL: Manchester United 40 053 Last season 40 073 so very little change from last season. Under MON`s last season: 42 788 (That was the season we finally beat them away from home and drew at Villa Park).

PL: Liverpool 37 460 last season 42 785

PL: Arsenal 35 818 last season 38 544

PL: Swansea 35 642 They came en masse... not in PL last season.

PL: Everton 31 853 last season 34 725

PL: QPR 32 063 no comparables really but Burnley similar? 34 618

PL: Manchester City 35 132 last season 37 815

PL: Fulham 32 372 last season 35 899

PL: Chelsea 34 740 last season 40 122

PL: Stoke 30,100 last season 35,235

PL: Sunderland 32 557 last season 32 627

PL: Bolton 32 263 last season 34 655

PL: Tottenham 36 008 last season 39 411

There is a noticeable trend over the last four seasons, which will become even more noticeable the endof next season if Idiot is allowed to stay.... Mark my word!

After the stoke game it became noticeable by those around me that the figures and empty seats just didn't seem to match up. theres no way there were more at the sunderland game and for the bolton game the two boards had different figures on them! (32,263 and 32,260) think theyre trying to make believe we're coming to accept Idiot and returning in droves to watch the 'inspirational' football he turns out! ;)

Fear I only hope your right about the new manager its not the relegation battle that gets you down its the gutless performances combined with the tactical nonce of a tadpole.
