He also bought a second hand large screen TV from Sir Steve, although he did forget it needed a frame and power to make it work.

It did work, Wael tested it out with his babestation subscription remember...

It will be interesting if and when restrictions are removed this season, to see how their attendances compare to Plymouth and Swindon. 

Guaranteed that Plymouth would be higher home and away, Swindon would be closer. 4th biggest club in the West Country anyone?

FGR average around 2,500 and I can't see them getting much more than that tbh.

Not a large catchment area and, whilst its a great success story, not a lot of history.

If they can push above 3k in their new stadium, they'll be doing well imo.

Err.. I was talking about the Gas! 

Sadly I can't see FGR's attendances ever being higher than the Gas. 

Even more sadly I don't think FGRs attendances at the new stadium will be any higher than they are in Nailsworth. At least after the novelty wears off. It will be 8 miles from the existing core supporter base and the support for the move is far from universal.

No idea why I went on about FGR - must have been your username :laugh:

OK, last season up to lockdown;

Rovers 7348

Plymouth 10338

Swindon 7788

No contest.

And the ground, don't forget the ground, who would want to watch football in that environment.

I'm surprised they haven't said their ground is as unique as the quarters in their shirt. 

With typical gas logic they say that people only come to watch us because of our ground, but they wouldn't want a ground like ours. The Mem is "real football" which clearly interests a lot less people.

I don't know if the opening poster is on the wind up or not...But with respect if you look at clubs like Wigan and Hull that are now back in our league.

Or at clubs like Swansea,Cardiff, Reading, Rotherham,Bournemouth, Huddersfield,Stoke and others.All have been mostly played in the bottom two levels and never filling there old grounds 10/15 years ago and before spending time in the top flight ( apart from Rotherham that is) all were on the same level crowd wise as us and smaller clubs.

At the moment (pre C19) at the Mem- we would average anywhere between 8k- 9k during a standard mid table season, and 10k plus during a decent season.People forget how awlful the MEM is for any fan of football unless you are in an expensive
Box in the west stand. 
 

And they blabber on about us having delusions of grandeur?!!! FML!

Thank god Sunderland love them, after all they are a similar size club.

I’m surprised that Sags went up there en masse last season (at least 20k of Sags there according to them) for their cup final. I thought they don’t want to go anywhere near anything red? Oh, but they get reassurance that they are loved more than da shit so it’s ok.

They should be challenging for the championship with crowds of 7k in a tented shithole with a condemned pasty shack and portaloos.

More eyesight trouble than Dominic Cummings on a trip to Barnard Castle!

Hahahahahaha, Brilliant!

4th best supported club in the region and below 2 clubs who were in a lower division than them last season.

What the hell makes their balloon head fans think that they’ve got great support?
