Have to say, I'm surprised Morecambe are below Forest Green. In fact I'm surprised anyone is

Interesting. Perhaps theyíll use this to settle divisions after lockdown?!

When was this from as teams arenít in current divisions?

I think its all time average attendances and the league positions are then worked out from 1st Man U, down to 92. Morecambe.

The premier league averages look quite low to me, I thought back in the days they had massive crowds?

Scanned through the League Two table a couple of times looking for you though.

I'd like to see an away one, we often take a lot.

Plucky old Bournemouth languishing in 16th place in League 1!

Be difficult to do as away attendances were rarely announced until about 10 years ago. I am sure one could be made up over the last 10 years or so though, I would think Bournemouth would still be way below Swindon in that too.

This season we lie in 3rd place in L2 away average on 869. Behind Bradford on 1,009 and Plymouth who are top on 1,026.

This is from that same website. Did we actually have a problem paying wages?

It's just a reblog of an old daily mail article https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7415009/After-Burys-demise-Boltons-ongoing-financial-struggles-fall.html

Think we just get bundled in due to lazy journalism and past troubles.

Seem to remember the club going after the journalist who wrote that to ask for it to be corrected as was untrue.

By the Daily Mail?

I find that hard easy to believe!

Slow news day. Chart of historical average attendances.



Unfortunately, this season Poxford are only a few hundred behind their obsession with average home attendance. This could be due to a number of number of factors. The lack of cup ties to heighten interest & encourage fans to come to other STFC games, and Poxford's ITC encroachment into historical STFC territory being two.
Those are 2 factors the current stewards of the club should start to address as soon as possible.

It wasn't the journalist, it was Kieran Mcguire who buggered it up from whose work the piece was written. He writes a lot of good stuff, but in what appears to be his haste to be first and sensational makes a lot of errors and seems incapable of checking his own workings or admitting errors.

I don't think it was the club who went after him, but a lot of Town fans on Twitter who pointed out that he was talking unsubstantiated nonsense!

Or to spin another way, division below and still pulling in bigger crowds.

What's ITC, btw?

Thanks.

Stuff like that is important, so hope it's not being neglected (even if it's not going to be top of the Club's 'to do' list right now.)

I'd be interested to know if Franchise's figure includes the old Wimbledon attendances.
