Re: The league return of the fans matchday thread

[QUOTE=andyd;I said earlier disappointed with season tickets sold, regular pay on the day seems to be stuck at about 700 others come when it's either a lucrative cup tie or their team is playing at a distance away or no game. Also with Covid as mentioned on a few forums I have read a lot of casual supporters may have got out of the habit not just at Stanley.[/QUOTE]

the virus issue does not seem to have affected other clubs by the look of the gates they are getting. as for casual supporters, all clubs have these with them either picking their games or attending when work and money permits. do not think either that stanley have become everyones second team that live in the area. doubt attendances will go up much when the international break is on us unless its a plum type of game thats been pencilled in before the season started.

this has been mentioned loads of times but that does not make it less true. remember having a talk that ended up a row about stanley with a fan from another club. he mentioned the fact of wigan being out of the league about as long as stanley where. he could not get the fact that wigan played non league level at the highest level available to them with always a decent side if not one of the best in non league. stanley did not have this luxury to keep generations of fans happy. there is always a level below or above where stanley are now at where people are prepared to watch football.

Look at Blackburn rovers for example pre Jack Walker days they got about 8 to 9 thousand, along comes Jack into the brand new Premiership up go the crowds home fans probably about 22 thousand. I was working with a Rovers fan who had seen both crowd's. they got relegated and I said your gates will drop because some fans just want to watch top level football, he disagreed but I was proved right they dropped to about 12 to 13 thousand. Last Saturday first game back and they were back to 9 thousand plus..My point being as proven by amount of people watching Premiership in pubs is they won't be enticed to Stanley unless we were promoted to the top flight and then we wouldn't have the room.Andy Holt has only tweeted this morning about the difficulty,s of attracting new fans it takes time building up the community spirit and hopefully fan base.

plenty of people also spend hard earned cash in getting football packages to watch at home. once you do that it seems a bit pointless like it or not to spend more money on watching another clubs games live. you need to be dedicated especially if you have to rely upon public transport to get to games. one thing is once the novalty of live football dies down and winter comes around i doubt stanleys gates will dip much further but plenty of others will if their sides are not doing well. feel sorrt for andy holt as i,m afraid he,ll be battering his head against the old stone wall in his attempts to get fans to the wham. stanley are like loads of others as it is what it is.

Problem that's going to happen in all walks of society if the person in question knew he had it and still went to Plymouth and Stanley then he has got of lightly with a 10 match home and away ban.

I don't know about it being a crime but it probably should be - at the very least it's stupid & irresponsible
