Although I said it's good for the club etc it is still not swaying me enough to ever go to a paint match. I will go to the area final / final if we make it. Until that happens it will be a passing interest with intrigue of the back ups performing well, pleasing to get results and pleasing to get finances in.

Might be a good one for us to swell the coffers a bit more.  Not for me though.

Give or take around 2000 on a cold winters night with Xmas around the corner

Will it swell the coffers, what's the break even on attendance against the cost of opening the ground, safety staff, Inspector Knacker, putting the flood lights on?

I know we get cash for progression but with boycotts the game itself could lose money?

Pretty much what I said on the subject.

I enjoy watching the fringe players in action, and its part of the iFollow season ticket so I will carry on watching.

If I lived much nearer Swindon and actually went to most/every home game then I doubt very much I would bother going.

I hope we go all the way and make some money.

I used to go home and away to these matches. Exeter away, Newport away, Hereford once...and that semi at Barnet.

The introduction of B Teams killed it for me.

I will not set foot in any ground, Wembley or not.  Will watch on the telly with the lads if that happens.

Same for me, regarding the introduction of Premier league B teams.

Refuse to go to the games while they are still involved in it

I thought it was longer than that, the last one I can remember was when Le Tissier scored a hat trick and still didn't get into the 1st team.

Well before that there was a representative team called Football League (basically an England B team) who played against the Scottish League, Irish League and League of Ireland. Our own Don Rogers played in one or two of those.
