Stephen Kenny adds his voice in the James Rogers article in this week Argus

James Rogers
‏@jamesdundalk

Stephen Kenny has no doubt a revamped/new stadium would improve attendances.

“There’s no doubt in my mind it would. Turner’s Cross, the new Brandywell and Tallaght are just much better places to go. They’re much better environments for supporters but listen that’s where we are."

Who am I to argue with Stephen Kenny?

It all goes hand in hand. One has to be developed with the other I suppose

It is amazing that we are one of the few full professional sports teams in the country, something that we should be proud of as a town and support, we have come along way.

What a game last night, the quality of the football on display was fantastic in the second half. You get a great perspective from the stands in Tallaght, a great ground and something for us to aspire to. We need to get more people witnessing and supporting this team so we build the foundation for us to keep this team and continue to grow. Last night was amazing entertainment. I will say it again there must be 4K football fans in Dundalk, we need to get as many of them up to Oriel for every game. The club has its part but so do we, preach the good word. Anyone in to football and not going is missing out, the quality of our football has improved massively since our glory days of 1980’s and 70’s, this is a proper full time professional team and we should be proud of them. The ‘there is nothing to do in this arse hold of a town’ no longer holds true. And while this dark perspective on life is part of who we are and flavors our humour, we need to break through it and rejoice in the light of this team. Sorry gone all philosophical but you know what I mean, don’t let the begrudges ruin our buzz and instead get them up to Oriel. 5-2 and it could have been more, second half was one of the best I have witnessed. See you in Oriel

it sounds more like a Moonies missionary approach - should we go door to door in pairs or solo?

Should have read ‘as I said don’t ruin the buzz’.

Interesting to look at the remaining home games we have and so little matches too.

Fri 08-06 Limerick FC
Fri 29-06 Cork City
Fri 27-07 Bohemians
Fri 03-08 Shamrock Rovers
Fri 14-09 Derry City
Fri 05-10 St Patricks
Fri 19-10 Sligo Rovers

The only one that is standing out for a modest potential crowd is actually next Friday, but surely after all the talk about the low turnout v Bray, we might get over 2,500 and especially after the big win last night.

All the other games are decent ones with at least a bit of away support and usually good numbers travel for Bohs and Rovers.

The Bohs and Rovers games might be moved due to europe, might have an impact on attendance.

The Derry home game in September will also go if we beat Cobh in the EA Sports Cup semifinal(final expected on 16th).

Still think there was a particular issue in May with the number of games and quality of some of the opponents. As things stand 2,500 for a bog standard match, 3,000 - 3,500 for a bigger match and 4,000 with something on the line is the most we can hope for and would make us the best supported team per head of population in the country by a distance.

Same here. Was told the scanners were not working. Almost sure they count all sold season tickets in the weekly attendance figures and just estimate a percentage paying at the gate.

My 2 season tickets weren't counted either. Huge crowd really considering a club with big travelling support would have had another 300 in the away end. Must have been near the safe holding capacity in the home end.
