Shocked when they announced the attendance 2693 was sure there was nearer 4000 , can’t see why we can’t get near to 10000 home fans against Birmingham .. we’ve got a team on the up playing good tidy attacking football , blues game very winnable

Ipswich at home previous round 2,870 (including 630 away). Everybody around us started laughing when it was announced. and nobody believed the figure. A Blues fan who sat behind me (with 2 Cov fans) last night said that there were way more in the ground than the announced figure. If it benefits our club, i have no problem. If anyone else is skimming it, I hope the club are on top of it.

All this shows is that football fans are really bad at estimating attendances - unless you really believe the club are committing fraud and money laundering offences?

There were a lot of empty seats last night, they were just spread out through the crowd.

There was 100% more than 2600 there last night if that crowd was in an an away end for us you’d be saying there was 4000

There was a few gasps in Saturday when the 6,666 gate was read out. Looked more than that to me....

A few less away fans and less corporate in the boxes, with a few more gaps about too, but if it's normally 6k then It was definitely well over half of that. Oddly I've twice thought they were wrong and both have been FA Cup games, can't be a co-incidence.

Surely, if there were 100% more than 2600, then the actual attendance was 5200 not 4000.
I think your maths needs looking at!
