How many? Will it attract the bandwagon?
Hopefully it will. Was great today but still thought we'd take more so hope it starts to grow.
Legends day will add an extra 200 to the gate. Good form in and around play offs will add an extra 2000!
Cant make this on off on a stag weekend
I'm guessing 12-13k (they do deserve more)
7000 only 5000 posh fans crazy support
I am in london so gutted to miss it
We HAVE to win. Csnt save good performsnces 4 big games only
13k in think
If we can get to the last game of the season and have a shot at making the play offs it will be a remarkable achievement, whether we do it or not. We have punched above our weight when you think of all the adversity we have had to put up with - Jones, Andreu, Biamou etc. What I have just started to take on board is the similarity to last season where Swindon and Mansfield fell away so badly towards the end to let us in the back door, a bit like Peterborough and Doncaster have started slipping (albeit a bit earlier on in the run in) Keep it up boys - great to have excitement again in the season, with something to play for.
Ah yes, the bandwagon fans who have stayed away for years but will come in droves to the glamour tie v Oxford at home ?
Your be so pissed you won't know the score until Monday lol
The fans who have stayed away for years return a few times each season.
The turn outs prior to this haven't been bad... but I will say this again.
The most significant game at the Ricoh on a Saturday night = 13k home fans.
Don't expect a deluge*!
* = Not to be confused with a Belgian ex-player... he will not be there... Legends Day or not!
I have no problem with anyone jumping on the band wagon so jump away lads and lasses
Indeed! The more the merrier!
Think it will be about 12000 ish. Oxford will hopefully bring a few aswell as they need the points aswell.
We want the fans tonreturn
If we make itnto championship and avg attendance rises to 16k are we going to moan???
Sisu missing a big trick here as usual. Drop the legal s now. Do a deal now with wasps, put next years season tickets on sale now for league one promotion charge/championship. With no price rise if we are are promoted for early birds.
Quite the club needs every possible supporter. We don't need an exclusive club for the most loyal 8000. Our actual fanbase will comprise of probably 150,000 different attendees so let's encourage not pour scorn
We all want the fans to return.
Lightweight ! convince them to have it in Coventry - what finer day could you have - few swillies , footie , few more swillies and the pride of Coventry girls to pick up
We want fans there. Just annoying that they instantly fuck off again.
It's the bandwagoners that cry about St holders being able to buy 6 Wembley tickets that grind my gears. A. We're probably going to be buying you a ticket with our allocation B. Fuck you, season ticket holders deserve preferential treatment over those that only go to Wembley.
Yeah because that means half have jumped on the ‘bandwagon’!
I reckon we'll get about 11,000. If we are still in the hunt with about 2 home games left then I think attendances will increase a bit more (probably 13,000ish)
you mean at both wembley appearances that weren't sold out ?. What was anyone moaning about, if you wanted to go, you could have
There was 11500 vs Burton on Friday night. Reckon 12500 vs Oxford , they will bring 800/1000 probably.
Indeed. It was just the latest stick to beat the club with
I really should pay more attention when they put the attendances up.
If we don't get that then our support is poor , irrespective of our owners / Ricoh situation.
I wonder how many Coventry fans have been to see the team this season ranging from those who attend every game to those who have attended only once. You would think that with things hotting up that if they have been to any other game this season then, if they were able, they would get to the game on Saturday. It would be interesting to know how many City fans have been to games this season. The figure may be distorted by the Community Day game but would an estimate of 15k be far out?
Different people through the doors? That probably sounds about right.
I'd say higher. There must be a fair number of people who go once or twice a season and people that bring a mate. I'm bringing a plastic man on Saturday and I reckon a fair number must end up doing similar over the course of 23 + cup games.
I'm sure under Mowbray we got over 17,000 around Christmas time when we were top or very near top. It was at this point that we began to fall away. This is surely the nearest to the play offs (given that it's the tail end of the season) we've ever been since relegation from the Championship. We should surely be aiming for that if we keep up this current form.
