That picture in the Warwick is right next to where I was yesterday - how the hell did you cope? There were a couple of fellas stood there who had me suspicious at times, but fair play for keeping it under wraps!
Home seating was sold out, as was the paddock (large terrace down the left). Think we could have squeezed an extra couple of hundred into the Warwick Road End, and probably 3-400 more into the Waterworks end. Certainly no segregated area where we could have put them, which was always going to be the case.Looking at that picture I don't think there was any capacity to give Bradford fans more tickets, the Carlisle ends look packed. Don't know why the Bradford fans were in uproar.
Our crowds haven't had the same post-covid bounce that others seem to have, at least not until the second half of the season. There have been a good few of our once hardcore support keeping their distance for a while due to off-pitch issues at the club, but it seems like the city (and the north of the county in general) is back onside.Just odd that carlisle get a third of that attendance normally, but clearly shows they’ve a massive potential if they ever find a way to harness it
I remember having my hopes for the season completely dashed when we went in level against Lex at half time at some point in July.Tbh I hate watching friendlies, utterly pointless. And after years of going to small local sides to watch utter dross I couldn't care less.
Not saying I care enough to go, but there are people now who are wanting to watch Wrexham so much, a pre season game to go to in the country would have been decent.
Geraint Parry (club sec) said there were clubs in the Championship willing to play us in pre-season.
Do local-ish Champ or Prem teams not want to play you in pre-season normally then?Mate, when you play the likes of Lex or Colwyn bay, this is a massive step up! I feel like a giddy teenager seeing who we are facing.
Granted, in the league its like a new kid in school where you cant wait to see everyone again and fear them, but at the same time like turning round to seeing your old mates from another school and saying 'I remember you'.
Can't wait for the start. Got all the games I want to go to lined up and not going to!

Gills always play clubs like Millwall, Charlton, Palace etc pretty much every pre-season. And not just as we are in L2 and previously L1. Those clubs also play the local non-league teams like Dartford, Dover, Bromley and the like. Been that way for years.
