They sound like a right bunch of morons. Sooner every club (including ourselves with a minority) weeds these people out the better.

Increased attendances can happen for most clubs with the right marketing, family tickets are the way forward. Nothing better to see at any ground than father/mother/ uncle /aunt taking kids. Moronic behaviour will drive this huge potential extra fan base away.

To be fair we have a great connection with families and kids attending. Still think more can be attracted. Good Friday match would be a great match to encourage as many kids up as possible, Easter holidays. However the club are on the right track. Easter camps prime example.

Figures updated on page 1, I think it was a decent turn out of 3,031. Quite a limited away support again.

Hopefully our fans will have patience and will continue to support the team in good numbers, last night was the 4th from 5 home games with 3k +

2,848 v Bohs last night, figures updated on page 1.

Given the second home game in a week, and following a loss maybe, decent turn out, but Bohs had a fair crowd there, over 100.

Agreed Niall, I mentioned 'over 100', it was probably closer to 200. In the few years tracking this, granted some clubs like Pats & Sligo have slipped well down the league, but to be fair Bohs have usually taken a solid amount. Top 3 visiting crowds still remain 1/Rovers 2/ Drogs 3/ Bohs. The figure for Bohs would have been similar or higher than Drogs during 09 & 2010.

Its some stretch of the imagination to suggest that 'over 100' meant close to 200!

I wonder why the attendance wasn't read out tonight, very unusual and can't recall a league game in ages that this happened before.

I thought the crowd was well down but there was no way it was 'approx. 3k' as per the official website.

I'd have said 2,200 and that would be a hopeful guesstimate really.

Lads I was sitting next to all agreed 'over 2k' and it was a decent figure.
