That can't be right as it only holds 10k increasing to 16k when the new stand goes in.  

Edit:  9,118 according to other sources which makes more sense.

In 10 yrs time attendances at grounds will mean nothing. 

 The PL aren't really interested in bums on seats as its international markets that count. In the lower leagues most will 'consume' the product on the internet.

Attendances at grounds mean alot to elderly supporters but soon most wont be bothered

I don't think the lower leagues can survive on internet streaming. Demand won't survive and the revenue isn't there

with a minimum of 100M prize money in the premier League bums on seats don't really matter now

Iím sure football grounds and going to football will even be a thing in 10 years.

Technology and a camera and you can stream to all your fans remotely anyway.
All youíd need a top grade 4G pitch, hell put it indoors as well. No postponements. Then you donít have the cost of owning/renting land, owning/renting a stadium, maintenance, match workers, policing, stewards. In theory no cap on tickets you could sell (home or away)

Only thing youíd really lose out on is actual match day income from things like the car park, food and hospitality but I imagine youíd save more by not needing a stadium.

My thought was that attendance numbers won't give people the jollies that they seem to do at the moment. Being able to stream on Saturdays may see streaming overtake physical attendances. With that, if the Crawley type approach ever took off in the lower leagues you may have more supporters who can only consume content on the net.

So Iím not disputing your statement. However, are you 100% sure Ďwhy Reading are so desperately forcing rivalries with teams?í Can you expand on who ĎReadingí are? The club? Or the fans?

Iím not trying to be a pedantic twat. Allegedly being a Right Wing Facist & Racist Tory Cunt I donít need to be. I do like to at times drill down to where statements originate from. In this case I doubt it is the Guardian, Independent, Daily Mirror or any Far Left rag. Iíve not read anything in the Big Issue I purchase from the poor East European lady who sells them where I work

Looking at Reeding as a club AKA the catchment area and the ground it makes me think about our beloved STFC. In our wildest dreams with what we have in terms of catchment area, footprint (yes that means the ground, T/E car parke etc) what can we achieve? Weíve been in the PL once. Look what it did to us.. Iíd say on what I have said puts us just ahead of Bournemouth.

Assume we become a Wiltshire version of Reeding, how long is that going to take? How much money? Where is that coming from?

I realise my post has moved on a bit from the post I was referring to but over the last few weeks I have been asking myself a lot of questions about my blind loyalty to this club.

The fans of Reading. They're essentially Rival-less. I'm not even sure if they've played the pheonix club of their traditional rivals Aldershot.

there's a chance some will look at the Matchday prices and decide on a season ticket. .. maybe

Its tough out there and with food and interest rates still rising some will have to sacrife a seasonal ticket for the sake of every day living. Let's hope the energy companies start dropping their prices from July onwards.

Someone from the club needs to give a bit of a state of the town update imo. Acknowledge the season has fallen short of expectations and give some high level detail of what will be different next season, particularly with regard to player recruitment. They need to give the fans something to make them want to put their hands in their pockets next season, not just be quiet.

If they believe thats the scale of the problems then i think a lot of fans will be right not to give them their hard earned money.

Short of expectations is an under statement.  Current trajectory is for a historically bad season.

Decent numbers in a disappointing season for us.

Kudos to Grimsby for even better numbers in a middling season - and to Carlisle who travel pretty much the furthest.

Not sure about others but we've certainly been hindered by limited away capacities at Orient and Wimbledon

That's just plain odd why they take proportionally so many away compared to what they get at home when compared to other clubs, not sure if that reflects well on Carlisle fans or just poorly on the supporters of other clubs?

Albeit I can understand why they may wish to get away from there every other Saturday!

Let Bradford win the play offs then we can be the best supported team in the league if the players perform.

I assume that if things are going OK, considering what they were getting in the NL last season Notts County will get more than us, I assume Wrexham won't get their new stand finished until 2024-25 at the earliest?

Current ground capacity is around 10,200 rising to 15,500 when the new stand behind the goal is complete so we could beat them if we're in the top 3 all season.

I don't doubt that the owners are good guys.

Part of it is jealously. Part of it is a variation on what happened at Chelsea. A 'new generation' of Chelsea fans arrived after Abramovich, adorned in their replica shirts, banging on about 'their' club despite having no idea of the history and the fact that Chelsea are the Millwall of West London. Wrexham are the Millwall of Wales. At their core, both horrible clubs with horrible fans. And to see them 'winning the lottery' is sick-making.

Good job they didn't get the Levelling up money, instead went to a project that I am doing a load of work on, so happy days!!

TBH I am/was more interested in what they are incorporating within the stand, much as with the Town End it has a load of space at the rear and the CGI's suggest a deep building attached to the rear of the stand so was just interested what was going in there?

Baadiff are a bunch of arseholes but for me Wrexham had some of the worst football violence I have ever encountered back in 86 when they were chasing women and kids and shirt wearing fans when we last played at the Racecourse Ground, horrible nasty pieces of work, the worst thing was there was only about 500 Town and 1,200 of them in the entire ground.

I stewarded Cardiff at the CG a few times from the mid 80s to the 00's and and they are indeed pretty nasty shits.

Ta, I realise I have become that prick I despise who asks other people to google stuff I am quite capable of finding myself.

Not as much as I was expecting in there, and they seem to be keeping a big lump of open space behind it which seems a bit strange, albeit I think there is scope to extend at the other end as well.

If their new fans are people living in North Wales and buying Wrexham shirts instead of Man Utd or Liverpool, who are a big draw in that area, that's no bad thing.

We wouldn't moan if we had a big injection of cash and sold more Swindon shirts locally and the Saturday trains to watch Chelsea or Spurs were a bit quieter.

Interesting to see the peaks and troughs. The early 2000s one always slightly puzzled me because we weren't bad then but I guess relatively it was worse than the eras immediately prior which probably had an effect. I'm sure it was a tenner into the Town End too back then.
