With the girlfriends eldest lad for his Christmas present.



All I’ll say is that they have been taking tips on attendance figures off the Oystons. No way that was nearly sold out, 35,000 there at the most.

That's just over half full. Looked more than that.



It was so quiet though, could hear the managers on tv.

Think they did what they do at Blackpool and packed the stand that’s on camera the most.



Wiki says capacity for football is 53,000 and attendance last night was given as 51,000, but it looked about two thirds full at best.

Maybe Helen lied saying it held 60 ;)



She confirmed they do count season ticket holders so I think it's safe to assume that all clubs do.



The difference with Blackpool is that there seems to be another mystery 1,000 from somewhere.

City, famous for the invisible man! Just ask the local police.

Shit supported club. Maine Rd was the right size for them.

20 years ago they were in the third tier of English football, just think where they could be in another 20 years with all this oil money.

60k stadium is about right for them.

They were getting 30,000 attendances in the third tier.There won,t be many teams who would get that many attending in Division 3.

Villa did. Not many of the other big clubs have dropped that low.

I'm sure it was possibly a wind up towards DD but no way can you describe City as having shit support. They turned up in the lower leagues.



I am pretty sure I know the reason why there are empty seats. Most games are sold out but it's boring as fuck watching your team win every week. The atmosphere is so flat. People just don't bother turning up and probably can't be arsed selling their ticket online. When my wife doesn't go, she puts her ticket online and gets 25 quid or so.

The tickets we got we struggled for. Had to search the whole stadium for two seats together, as the seating plan showed it was almost a sell out, and managed to find two in the east stand right in the gods.



To turn up and the place is barely two thirds full is then a bit of a shitter.

You'd have got a full block together tonight.





Penalty for Bristol City!

Brilliant. My wife has booked train tickets for the final already. I know I shouldn't say this but it's made me want Bristol City to win even more!



Not sure why Pep isn't playing a striker.

You just know City will score 4 or 5 second half though.
RE: Was at the city game tonight

Can't see it unless they bring a striker on. The only fear is that Bristol City ran their bollocks off and pressed hard. Not sure they will be able to keep that up.
RE: Was at the city game tonight

It's still 5/1 for a Bristol City win.
RE: Was at the city game tonight

What were Bristol City doing then! Pressed so high and left a massive gap in midfield. Far too easy.
