your the bloody dunce we took just over 2k initially with the option of more, for some reason we have sent 600 of the original smallest allocation back to arsenal. :doh:

im sure in the fa cup we get a % of the capacity if we want it.

ive found an fa cup 3rd round game at the emirates and a good allocation of away fans.

It's not an embarrassment, the ticket prices are expensive, and considering most Rovers fans live up North, it's an expensive train ticket as well!

i see your from leeds.
well my leeds mate said they paid £47 in the lower tier and £54 upper in 2011 and took over 9,000

also looking at what arsenal charge for leauge games i think its not such a bad price.

FA Cup Rules say the home club must offer 15% of capacity to away tea.The away team needs to commit to the full allocation or take a smaller allocation dependant on Segregation.
Other than that Plod has the final call on lowering an allocation.
We would have been offered 9,000 and declined it and would have taken a feel for the ticket sales. From recollection the amount available through this segregation at the Emirates is 9,000 (FAC), 6,000 (League) then 5,000 and a secure block of 1450.

Our attendance is at a similar rank in this league as it were the Prem. 100k town population with a high percentage of those town folk being cricket lovers. The towns also on it's arse. So many bad decisions have been made by the council throughout a recession has left a large proportion unemployed or struggling to make ends meet. Add on top of that the rigmarole that has been surrounding the club as of late.

It's not surprising our attendance is so low.

We were 17th highest attendance last year in the Prem. We are currently ranked 17th on attendance in the Championship.

Is that not a similar rank? :shrug:

we're gettin about, on average, 10k less than last season, from being in this league alone, if you want to discuss the 'rank' surely you have to leave it until the end of the season, otherwise its just a pretty pointless thing to point out :lol:

I think most clubs tend to announce the sales figure rather than the actual attendance.
Man United are the worst, e.g. Man Utd vs West Ham (FA Cup replay) - 71k recorded. Bollocks, more like 40k
