The overall average may be down, but from the 12 played at home,out of the 10 that are applicable, 6 of those were higher.

I suppose it is also a question of whether you go to support your club or be entertained. At todays prices, it is far easier to justify non attendance

Not sure they were leaving Nath probably needed a drink after the first half think we all needed a beer.

It's an entertainment industry as OxfordSpur says. We are only getting entertained for small periods. Although it's more entertaining than last year, there's always a few parts where you want to cover/avert your eyes. It also winds fans up seeing basic mistakes which should not be happening at a club this big so often. Does Randy and Faulkner seriously think people will pay to be *****ed off?? There's always the die hards who will go regardless through habit, lack of any alternative, paid for ST already, want to add to 12th man but we haven't had 40'000 of them for a long time.

the attendances have been good this season though considering the terrible results, people are still turning up week in week out and giving support but i think this is mostly bolstered by the season tickets sold pre season on the back of eck out and lambert in. i don't see those sales happening next season i suspect averages of mid 20 thous'

I just keep hearing Ian Holloway's words ringing in my ears - "Villa are a half-arsed club, that used to be famous".

Merlin at least 5 or 6 people left by me in the lower holte after the 2nd goal and never returned. Hopefully the kind of 'fans' going down will get rid of. I'd much rather have 25k who supported the team than 40k where half can't wait to boo and complain.
