First evening game at the Arena for a fair old while.

Wonder what the gate will be?

Aside from a granny rolling down the hill at the forest game I didn't see any trouble what happened?

Lets see slower than Platt. It quite possible that Cardiff bring only 1000 but I'm extremely confident on the attendance will be in the range of 18 to 20 thousand.
For what its worth Platt was a good player in my opinion just a bit slow in his control a bit like 'our hero "Super Houch' was

Midweek games are notoriously lower but I see no reason at all why the the range of 18 to 20 thousand wont happen. In retrospect im being a little bit cautious here , Mark Robins and the team are doing so well and shows what could be achieved. I reckon 19 to 21 thousand range is definitely a distinct possibility. There was over 20 thousand for first game and we are now doing much better than expected,

Love a night game. just seems a better atmosphere. Used to love a night game at Highfield Rd walking up cold night, the floodlights lighting the ground up and the smell of the burger vans.
great memories of seeing the cop full and playing teams like Liverpool and Forest on a Tuesday evening in front of 17-18000

The old joke has gone far enough.
Range between 18 and 20000 !
Obviously there will be more than eighteen people at the game and less than twenty thousand.
Its an old joke STP , sorry to take it out on you! Its been a good day so excuse the fun!
Can’t see more than 16000

We seem to have developed a solid 15000+ home fan base so I’d be disappointed not to achieve that again plus away, so something approaching 17000 Wednesday.
Problem is it’s expecting people to spend £45 in 4 days which is a big stretch

It's not going to happen on Wednesday I know but would love to see us getting an extra 2-3k fans in behind the goal, maybe Peterborough a week Friday?

More likely for a Saturday game I reckon. Next one is Fulham on 2nd Oct. if we play how we can and keep picking up wins next 4 games could see quite a few for that. In typical City style we’ll probably get tonked then and they’ll all wonder what the fuss was about 😂

Fulham normally yes, 12.30 live on Sky no! Looking forward to the Friday night game though I don't think that will affect the attendance, might get more than normal!

Yes had a knock, returned to training on Friday. Sounds like he could have played but Robins said he had a 'gut feeling' about playing Allen.

Driving down from Cardiff with Mrs Dactyl and her dad…both Cardiff season ticket holders.
I’m making them sit in the away end while I go off with my mates.
Should be fun!
As away fans, will they be allowed in the casino for a pint after? If so, can anyone recommend a place where they won’t be?

They’ll be fine if not wearing away colours

Oh didn’t realise it was an early kick off on sky!

That means not another 3pm Saturday kickoff until 23rd Oct :( Bloody Sky
