I agree not really. It was always a ball ache getting to your ground even though i live in Somerset. The one thing that did piss me off with the Yeovil people ( and i worked in South street -- A Packaging company from 1995 to 1998 ) was the fact most of them supported Spurs or Everton. I used to say should'nt you be going down to watch Yeovil instead of travelling ( possibly to the local pub ) There answer was "They'll only go back to Non league so why bother "
I agree there are far too many people in Yeovil who don't support their local team, sadly this is case in the majority of provincial towns in my experience. The mid 90s when you were there was one of the worst times in our history when we were in the Isthmian league and there was little positivity around the place anyway. Having said that we had the legendary game against Enfield in 97 with a capacity crowd and 2000 more locked out (I watched half the pitch from the top of a portakabin). We didn't reach the football league until 2003 so those dates & fan comments don't tally? The ground is only a ballache to get to on the train, if you're going by car it's easy (although it can then take an age to leave the car park after a game).
