They made a bit of noise last night but it was all stuff about our support being shit and our ground being too big for us! Granted that may be and if you play in a matchbox you dont need many fans like them but was a bit ironic.

When we played them at home there were 125 of them who gave their team very little support as most of their songs being about how much they hated scousers and they spent a lot of the match making gestures towards the Tranmere fans in the Johnny King Stand. 15 minutes into the second half when one of their players was substituted at least a dozen of them walked out so I can only assume they were friends and family of the player who went off. This and given that we out numbered them at their place last week, undoubtedly not the first time that has happened there this season, makes me ask what exactly is the point ? Maybe one of their posters on this site could explain but as there doesn`t appear to be any thats not going to happen.

Yep, they are the most soulless football club going and will become even more so if they swap their Moor lane home for the AJ Bell stadium 7 miles away.

Because we've sold our allocation of 2500 Swindon have just given us a further 300 + tickets.

Happy days. There should be a crowd of around 12,000 which will certainly help the coffers! I imagine the Exeter game in a few weeks will hopefully be similar. Our Break even is at 8,000 so this is great news for the finances of the club.

How many of your lot are going in the home ends then?! I can imagine the game will be all ticket............

Quite a few Bantams live in Harrogate area so they should have no problem getting tickets for the home end

Friend of mine lives in Leeds but supports Northampton and had no problem getting tickets for the hone end earlier this season.

Due to the novelty of playing Harrogate and being on the doorstep of such a lovely place for pre match drinks for a lot of us, I would imagine we would sell about 5000 tickets If the ground was big enough.

Excellent 2500 plus away fans expectrd out in force tomorrow from Bradford City and Bristol Rovers.

Amazing really for mid table 4th tier clubs.
This happened in 2015 too in the fifth tier with ourselves and Bristol Rovers, we took 2500 to Alfreton and on the same day Bristol Rovers took 2600 to Kidderminster.
No other Country can compete with the crazy numbers a lot of our teams take away when it comes to lower league football.

Officially 2,473 GAS out of 12,695 at Swindon. Funny, as we apparently sold 2,494 tickets and were given a further 302. Were the covid rules strictly enforced then?

Those are the figures for tickets sold. So the extra 302 weren’t bought by Rovers fans.

Quite a few clubs say that. They must all bring similar numbers to each other as our home attendances (especially on a Saturday) don’t vary that much……

To be fair you could see 2 big groups of about 20 each of very familiar faces in the home ends
