How do you think we'll compare next season to other clubs? Smaller than Birmingham? Forest? Same amount as Derby?
Think that's about right Evo - if full away attendances are allowed (which I assume they will be) then I think we will average about 17k next season. The figure could rise if we have a decent season.Forest Derby both more than city
We will probably be just below blues
Walk up of 6,000 ? Perhaps for the odd big game, but that hasn't been the City way for a while. I think the away following average would normally be above that (but may be affected TV schedules and the effect of Cov-id on travelling support). I know I want to follow City away, but am reluctant to travel on coaches/pile into pubs at present (which is part of the 'experience')10k season tickets isn’t it?
Average of 2000 to 3000 away fans over the season so that’s 13k
Walk up of about 6000
About 18000 - 19000. 20k would be good.
But there will be a huge difference between smallest and biggest crowd as always with us
Don’t know how that stands us v Birmingham etc
Well move a few between categories if you like, I still say we’ll average somewhere between 18 and 19kWalk up of 6,000 ? Perhaps for the odd big game, but that hasn't been the City way for a while.

Don’t think that’s the case- example, head towards Rugby and you’re in Leicester territory quite quickly nowadays with how they’re doing.Agreed, especially when you consider the size of Coventry and Warwickshire and consider also we are the only professional club within Coventry and Warwickshire.

I would agree if Cov-id had finished. Still a lot of vulnerable/anxious people out there who will swerve crowds.Think this is being undershot slightly. When did we last sell this many season tickets?
Perfect storm with promotion, no footy with covid, and ricoh return - be surprised if we average less than 20k - think it’ll 21/22k average.
Norwich are a good example, our crowds were always a bit more than theirs, definitely we were ‘comparable’, now they have big waiting lists to get in and sell out every weekHistorical attendances mean very little.
That's why when people QUOTE our premiership attendances at times they also fail to add that most other clubs were shite too compared to today
Well late 80s as well. We didn’t have 30k but we compared well to our rivals at that point. Most of them were below us, Wolves, West Brom, Birmingham, Leicester and so onBetween 1967-2017 we prob lost more football matches than 90% of league teams & cant underestimate the effect that has on crowds.
In that period the teams we like to compare ourselves with were either winning the league (Derby twice, Forest, Leicester) or yo-yoing between divisions so had promotions that drew fans in.
The last time we could look down our nose at our rivals gates was prob under Milne with 30,000 City fans in the ground + away support
