I think there'll be a few more than the 400 sold by the club. We do like an away day. Win or lose, its always a good day.

There's always going to be generalisations but we do try to break the mould (rather than the seating)

I'm staying over so plan on being at the club for a few after. Hoping the beer isn't that flat.

I remember Wakefield used to come to London in fancy dress and have a great day out. Suspect it was a very small minority causing trouble but hopefully it gets dealt with.

IIRC, they came to Griffin Park in WWII regalia one year.....fantastic sight with 1,200 or so of them on the terrace at the end.
As much as I enjoy winding them up, Wakey fans have always seemed to me as some of the most genuine when they come down......the idiots who did the damage are not indicative of the Wakey fans I've encountered at games.
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Speaking of a drunken minority and fans dressing up......my 40th Birthday was the day Huddersfield came down in 2005 and it was a beach party theme......I spent the 2nd half in the ealing terrace annoying the yorkshire lot with my water pistol......lol...that was fun and we had over 3,200 in them days

That's an awful lot of water pistols!

On a more serious note, I hope there isn't a repeat of this type of behaviour, and the rest of the season is enjoyed without fear of abuse or violence.
