Because of my compassion for the poor folk of Salford Quays, who have struggled with the modernisation of Britain, and with the loss of favourite sons like Adrian Morley.

Why where's Mozza gone Bazza ? do you mean Albert Finney he's a famous Salford son who sadly has departed. :roll:

5% sounds fine when you put it like that. But look closer and last years game was on a Thursday night mid season compared to a Friday home season opener. 500-600 more people therefore isn’t really impressive and taking in the above factors I would say in reality it’s not an improvement on last year

On the other hand, last year we faced the reigning champions, this year we faced a struggling mid-table side who battled relegation. :wink:

I don’t understand what you’re finding so funny. I was criticising the low attendances. That’s usually something you’re all over.


An "average" attendance figure is not normally collated until the sides have played at least 2 home games.....the claim the current attendances as averages is just daft, regardless of if you're in support or not of the crowds we get. Thus my mirth!

Typically, the first home game of the season and Derbies are the best attended games, so in reality I wouldn't count "average" gates 'til we're half way through the season.

Warrington's gates were 1,800 and 1,200 up on last years respectively......that is a positive.....and I hope it continues as a trend, because Widnes being replaced by London is going to hit a few sides from the part of the country.

On the topic of "the number of London fans", I believe there were more than a hundred at the AJB on Sunday....many of whom won't have got home to close to Midnight....excellent effort and one that they are expected to do every fortnight and not just once a year. :CLAP:
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:

Midnight CJM? The game finished before 5pm so they should have all been home by 10.
