Nope. I think taking the piss out of away numbers is counter productive. It really isn’t the same thing
Nope, you start moaning when people post big away figures and come out with some shite along the lines of ‘ooh let’s award extra league points for big away numbers as that’s all that matters apparently’ and then you post about your sold out away end.
People in glass houses.

So, going by what you’ve just written then your point about my posting about not caring about away attendances is wrong then?

And please point out where I was boasting about selling out at Wimbledon. I also tend to post on here Sutton’s away numbers for all games unless someone gets there before me.

I didn’t say you were boasting, I was simply pointing out that when other posters post about their sell outs you have a moan and whinge, but then you go and post the very same yourself, despite you claiming to not care about away attendances, whilst browsing the away attendances thread.

Your missing a very simple premise. I’ve never stated I don’t care. Having a pop at those who mock other clubs away supports is a very different thing.

Another very simple premise is that, as I stated before, unless someone posts it before I do, I will post Sutton away figures.

Some huge distances travelled today, I think the closest game was Crewe v Mansfield, and that’s not exactly local.

353 was said by the commentator and stadium announcer too, and shown on scoreboard.

Swindon heard it wrong.

That's not bad at all considering how bad we both are, the overall crowd just under 5000 was relatively decent to be fair, was expecting less.

Here is my 'raw' average. My data includes one or two estimates, but it would not make much difference to the raw average.

I feel the best supporter away travel champions need to take into account, distance travelled, away sell outs and if games are in evening or afternoon.

I will come up with a more realistic table later but for now try this for willy waving

As promised, this is the ultimate willy waving table.

As I said before, anybody can take hundreds to an away game down the road when this is no limit on capacity. Also travelling on a Tuesday night reduces away support compared to a Saturday afternoon.

I have converted each away attendance into the equivalent of travelling 150 miles on a Saturday afternoon or 100 miles travelling on a Tuesday night. For example, the 63 Harrogate fan's 240 mile trip to Gillingham on a Tuesday night counted as 151.

In addition, I have calculated a median figure instead of just an average to take into account sold out away ends. I can see the Stockport figure dropping if they keep losing away from home.

Anyone want to make a fans per mile table?

I love a bit of stats me.

Although it is justifiable as to why we have such a low average, I can’t yet look at that table without being embarrassed.

We've sold out Salford now, which ordinarily wouldn't be that much of a willy waver but the fact that it's on a massive train strike day (I had my ticket refunded as there was no way I could get there on public transport) is an excellent effort.
