Ohhh how great, you've came top of the away following table, you still came third in the actual table behind a village club though.

I didn't make any comment about it - just put it on here as some of you seem to like discussing attendances.

You're correct you didn't, but I did. I wonder why we comment on your attendances so often? Maybe it's something to do with the over exaggeration your lot come up with every other week? 🤔

Why wouldn’t you employ Wilder?! Have you perused his CV?!

You may not have noticed but he is currently employed. Why would he move to another Championship club, particularly one that will have no players or money, if relegated.

I think Rovers were 3rd in the home attendance stats, Swindon were 2nd @Shaun Taylor

Assume Bradford would be top for the home crowds?

Yet another season where your average away attendance is lower than ours despite your fellow Gasheads desperate attempts to tell everyone how ‘embarrassing’ and ‘shocking’ our away support is...

We didn’t win away for 6 months as well, which one of us has just had a promotion season??

Not having a go at you, I know you’re reasonable. The others though should keep their mouths shut.

I'm surprised at how low some of these crowds are

Yes , especially the loyal and true few, who according to sky get 10k every week when in truth their average crowds including away fans would fit in the Dolman and section 82. Tinpot. Awaiting  In the Net to find a bigger stone to throw

Oh I dunno, I remember a top flight game where the teams kicked off late and engineered a 2-2 draw to relegate Sunderland :)

I don’t know what you’re talking about. I was there and can remember it clearly. For the last ten minutes the team in red played  such amazing football (on a par with Brazil at their best) that the opposition just couldn’t get anywhere near the ball. The crowd was spellbound by the exquisite football on display

Of course I know he’s currently employed - that was a bizarre statement. You say Burnley would have no players if they were relegated? Really? They’d have zero players, every single player contracted to Burnley would simply leave???!!! ... and you say Burnley would have no money if they were relegated ... so the parachute payments would suddenly dissolve into nothingness leaving the clarets potless ...?! Oh dear ...

What is the source of these numbers? Apologies, but nothing to say that you could have simply made them up ... thanks

The majority of the squad JB inherited were the biggest bunch of wasters to wear the quarters.  He was able to get the majority of them shipped out, kept the few decent ones, and built his own squad.  He'll obviously have to get some replacements in for next season, whether he is successful remains to be seen, however, I don't think that the previous relegation will have any bearing on what happens.

Can't have been worse than the mob that got you out of the league ?

Still less than our average then, in a promotion season for you and an utterly dire season for us. 

Thanks for pointing that out.

@In the Net many thanks for coming on the forum. I might not agree with all of your points, but it's good to have other rivals views on them anyhow.

I have a question for you though. Do you think that Rovers getting promoted back to the league they were relegated from a year earlier is a "Massive Achievement"?

For me, you were always one of the 3 biggest clubs in the division with probably a budget to match.

With 4 Teams going up (still have no idea why) from L2, it is in essence one of the easier divisions to get out of.

Isn't the "Massive Achievement", the fact that you were able to get promoted from the division after such a catastrophic 4 months that saw you at once stage 23rd in the bottom league of EFL, only 18 months or so, after being 3rd or 4th in the division above?

So in essence you are back now where you were 2 seasons ago?

It's probably seen as a "massive achievement" to a club who haven't been able to muster a league Derby against their city rivals, since probably a third of their fan base were born.! 

You have to give them credit for turning their season around and the drama around the circumstances of them clinching promotion is what real football & supporting your club are all about - in reality though, what they did was make a fairly straightforward task, a difficult one. 

When you sum it up for what it actually is - they've just got themselves out of English footballs basement division..! Whoopee..!

Yes, according to Sky - they need to employ better researchers.

I certainly was not "throwing a stone".  Some people on here like to discuss the attendances, so I posted the info - without any comment added.  I see that somebody has now posted the home attendances, which, likewise has started a discussion.

Apologies if you found my post offensive in some way.

For me, the "Massive Achievement" is how Barton has managed to transform the club and squad, from what it was when he got here.  Yes, we are only back to where we were a couple of seasons ago, but he has changed the ethos and culture at the club, he's brought in some excellent backroom staff, changed a lot of the medical staff.  Everything is so much more professional, and the players appreciate that, and have responded to it. The training methods are obviously working, once the effects of Covid had gone (some players were affected for quite a long period), you could see that the players energy levels were there for the whole 90 minutes - not something we've had before, and it was noticeable than most other teams were flagging in that last 10/15 minutes, which often gave us scoring opportunities.  He's obviously got good contacts within the game for loans, so hopefully we'll get a couple of decent youngsters in to add to the squad.  His man management appears to be good, which I know will surprise some people because of his reputation.

I wouldn't expect people on here to listen to his interviews, but he did say in August/September that we probably wouldn't see the best of this squad until around Christmas, as it takes time for a whole re-build to gel, and get to know each other's games.  He also said that he would get us promoted, and he instilled that belief in the players too.

Apologies if this is a longer answer than you wanted!

I didn't point anything out in my post - I just provided information on a topic which is frequently discussed on here.

I am under no illusions about the differences in the attendance between the two clubs - same as I can remember that your attendances were low when you were in the basement division.  Those are the realities of football, and always will be, unless you're a Liverpool or Man Utd etc. 

Have to say, you seem rather salty this week, strange as we are of no significance to you.

Close call, but I'd say the more recent mob have just shaded it in the wasters category.  Barton also sussed out the CEO and Director of Football pretty quickly too, and standards are actually improving on that side of the club too - at long last.
