    Lol what is this?

    Our away support is better than Leeds? By any benchmark....ah hang on.

    This is because we take on average 6000 away to Brum every other week?

    Looking at the disparity between Palace, Brighton and Millwall, I'm going to guess this was created by a Palace fan.

    Oh Christ, anybody who makes those needs their hard drive checking.

    The guy who posted it is a Middlesbrough fan

    Always thought Pompey have far better support than Southampton away from home. Certainly to us anyway

    Me too, but then I have an irrational dislike of Sunderland and Sheffield United too, but equally quite like Newcastle and Sheffield Wednesday, so perhaps the truth is that I sub-consciously dislike teams in red and white vertical stripes!

    In part skewed by whether or not you've played MK Dons, us or Sunderland I would assume.

    When we take 500 (if that) to Fleetwood average will come down significantly, cant really see another attendance for us below 1k.

    Sunderland have yet to go to Blackpool (I know we have, as well) and MK Dons. To have any chance of finishing above them in the averages (which is unlikely) we need to cut their allocation to about 150 when they come to St Andrew's. Although, they will then just buy in the home end (side!)

    Fair play to Southend numbers, considering the season they've had (compared to e.g. Peterborough) and because Southend have to travel further than them/others.

    Not really it will be 500 divided by the number of away games played so won't come down too much...

    Sorry for the late reply il have a look

    EDIT, they only have upto Nov 12th ATM and I can only give you the top 6

    Average away attendances after GW16
    1 Leeds United 3,781 #LUFC
    2 Sheffield Wednesday 2,558 #SWFC
    3 Derby County 2,095 #DCFC
    4 Birmingham City 2,022 #BCFC
    5 Luton Town 1,984 #LTFC
    6 Nottingham Forest 1,913 #NFFC

    Upto the 24th November we were roughly 4th best from the 72 clubs.

    We will I imagine finish in the top 7 or 8 in the football league this season for away support

    Considering we are playing in grounds with a lower away allocation than most Champioship grounds, those figures are even more impressive. We have sold out at a lot of League One grounds so the average could have been higher.

    The turn out at Bolton (2000ish iirc ) was equally impressive , Considering
    the game was only confirmed as going ahead the day before.
