As a result of Smiths winner we got roughly 600k in gate reciepts from the 2 Man City games, and some prize money.

So Taylors assist indirectly brought in the best part of 700k.

He was also the difference maker against Stoke and scored our equaliser agaisnt Palace.

He played a huge part in the cup run, and more than brought in the money he cost.

What you forgot to mention is that performances against Prem sides lead to 9 million for Bobby and 7 million for Joe .

( Not that we are short of cash )

back in 1990 yes I'd agree with that but not now,

The longer we are above them and light years ahead of them off the field the bigger the gap between the fan bases grow,

They have topped out at 8k avg and its slowly declining while ours continues to grow and has hit 20k avg,

......and most of their fans know this. Quite a few have voiced their concerns about future attendances.

I wasn’t born until 94 so all my memories of being a city fan the gas have been below us and had a shit fan base, can always rely on them to come out with something stupid and make my day working with a few gas heads more enjoyable though 😂

All this attendance chat really is hilarious.

Ultimately they could have taken 10k; end result is their team comprehensively lost to the (full 11 changes) second string of a struggling Championship team.

We could have taken the sum total of one man and a sausage roll when we visited, but at least our currently midtable Championship team well beat QPR’s first team, and will play them again later in the year too.

If I were a sag (perish the thought...) I’d be far more concerned over my side improving its currently poor league form and building towards getting out of the league it’s in than comparing gate sizes with us.

As I said before; we can start this pointless dick measuring over gates once QPR away is a routine league game for them every year as it is for us, not a glamorous once-in-a-generation cup tie like yesterday was for them.

And it they want a better comparison on that front? How many did we take to Man City last year? Seems their second round QPR game had the same level of meaning to them as our semi-final in the same competition last year against the Premiership leaders for all the noise they made about it before hand.

Never has the phrase ‘mind the gap’ seemed more appropriate.

Looks like gaslogic has returned... 

Although I guess if you take the attendance at Cheddar last night, rovers probably did have more than twice as many fans as us for a midweek fixture... 

Screenshot_20180829-074151.png

Yeah, and they had 3 times more fans than us at Molineux last year as well....although on this occasion someone is clearly struggling with basic maths and possibly English.

Still, it’s amazing what cheap tickets, higher League opposition and the novelty value of a ground you haven’t visited for 4 decades will do for your travelling support. I wonder if they’ll take that many fans to grounds they visit every year in the League, like Gillingham or Bradford for example?....

Was their game available on Sky like ours was?

Premiership fan base. That’s absolutely amazing. 

Bournemouth get around 10/11k at home, so maybe that's what he is referring to?

No, not on sky or anything... 

But still, they are obviously massive

So the biggest club on the planet only just took more fans than us? Despite the fact that it was their cup final, tickets were less than half the price (in some cases) and it wasn't on TV. Unbelievable.

And to be fair QPR’s Stand is easy to look full and cramped with no view isn’t it, you don’t have to have many fans in there to do that.

Even their bloody official account is BS'ing!

1,750 fans? Well we know that top tier holds 1,800, and even in their own pictures there it looks about half full.

In fact if you look at our away lot here there looks like there is more of us!

thats funny as the photo's show seats everywhere and the 1650 capacity up tier about 2/3rds full,

It's not like rovers to make up attendances I mean they always take a huge following, "its what we do" as they say

One or two clowns over on gaschast really made me laugh-moaning about how shit a ground Loftus Road is.....

Shown in comparison,as dated as Loftus Road assuredly is it's Wembley next to the 'tented village!

You're being unfair Monkeh, we took just under 8,000 to the Etihad and the next home game at the house of tents was 9k.

They still beat us :whistle:

Matty Taylor is probably their greatest ever player (it’s why we had to pay £10M to get him, allegedly..)The fact he hasn’t scored so many should remind them just how big the gap is. 

The gap is so big, is it even a gap anymore? 🤔

Not so much a gap more a chasm.

They are working on this!

As it currently stands they are looking to get out of league one by heading back into league two.

1750 is a decent following on a midweek.

Yes it was £15,

Yes it was London,

Yes it was the first time they'd been there in getting on for 40 years,

Yes it was their cup final,

But for a small club that barely scapes 8,000 for home games,  that's good. ;)

It’s true. If they were t say “for a low-to-middling third-tier team, our support is decent”, there would be very little we could argue with. Trouble is, they cannot stop there and it morphs into “we could out sing the kop/have more fans than Real Madrid/are beloved everywhere we go”*.

Exactly! 

Once they stop comparing themselves to far bigger clubs they *might* justifiably win some arguments.

I hope you're making sure you are going to get all your change, assuming that this is an offer to buy the "club" from that very nice man (or at least the family who let him play with it...)

They were promised a new all singing all dancing food and drink outlet after a couple of they're original ones were condemned. When it opened they were selling out of date crisps. One of the many gifts.
