I'm guessing our home fans average is down slightly on last season, probably because of what seemed like more midweek games?
It'll be up on last season as no fans present last year but yeah, compared to year before, i have no idea

Think it's down around 200 from a stat I saw somewhere.
Ta, yeah I saw that and we still had Coventry, Doncaster(?) sell-outs to come in that season so we're probably still along the same lines.

2,228 Wycombe at MK for playoff second leg, total attendance 13,012.
That figure was the sum total of our allocation, despite there being thousands of empty seats in the stadium.
Winkelman refused to give us any more, on the grounds of 'sporting advantage' :pond:
Didn't work out too well for them, did it? :woo:

No, but why should we not try for an advantge. Because we have a decent sized stadium doesn't mean we have to be does it. We still gave you more fans than you gave us.

The fact your keeper had an incredible game and kept you in it doesn’t mean that the idea didn’t work. From my seat I barely heard Wycombe more than once, a wanderers chant on the 78th minute or something.

When we only get the gate receipts from 1 in 4 fans there’s not even a financial incentive either really. In normal circumstances we’d have offered the entire stand but these weren’t normal circumstances.

TBF the Wycombe fans could be heard quite loudly a lot of the time on Sky, maybe they had microphones in there?
There only appeared to be two empty blocks between both sets of WW fans.
I doubt it stopped them singing together, so it seemed a bit pointless TBH.

I don't get the split either but it's not the first time it has happened and with the concerts at the stadium taking off it won't be the last time either as the away end is where we take seats out for the mass walkways. Mansfield had that in 2019 and they didn't even moan half as much about it all.

It wouldn't surprise me if microphones were there, but then again the acoustics in the stadium are awful so what may have been caught by the nearest microphone wouldn't have been heard in the other end of the stadium. I'm just sharing it from my view and I very rarely heard a peep out of them.

I can assure you that there was near continuous singing and chanting from our fans throughout the whole game, and for the best part of half an hour after it too.

Very often it's the case that one team's fans at one end of the ground can't hear the opposition fans at the other end. For what it's worth, I heard very little MK vocal support at the ground, apart from the period around the time of the goal. Very little in the second half. Watching the recording on Sky the next day, it was more evident. So, I think it's a case of, at the ground, we couldn't hear you much, you couldn't hear us.

Still would have been better with another few thousand Chairboys in though :)

You had an allocation of 1,850, which is our normal away allocation.

19% of capacity. We got 7%.

Why then do you give massive allocations for league matches to the likes of Ipswich, Pompey, Sheffield W etc?

Because nothing normally rests on the result of one league match whereas the playoffs, it does?

Anyway, rightly or wrongly it's done, you've come out on top. It's history.

Remind me - what % capacity did Sheff Wed and Sunderland allocate to the respective away supporters?

Not that many, but both those grounds were actually full, or very close to it. Same with our ground.

Whereas you had over 17,000 empty seats :conf:
And? That doesn’t mean we had to give you more than you’ve ever brought to us before.

I’ve just seen that you’re not allowing Sunderland to have more tickets for Wembley despite them selling out with you in no danger of doing the same. Interesting.

Interesting. I saw that Wycombe aren’t bothered once they sell all their tickets it’s the EFL that don’t want it to happen.

We got 30000 away supporters for a club called New Chemical Romance at the stadium tonight and it;s going to be repeated on Satuday and Sunday. I'm not sure which league they play in and they are on the pitch as well. :woot:

Number of Wycombe supporters at Wembley last weekend - 23,500.
Number of MK supporters at Wembley last weekend - big fat zero.
Amen.

Only the 10,000 shy of our solitary Wembley attendance under this guise then. Decent effort

Edit: that last part also isn’t true, a couple thousand Dons or so were a part of the Newport Pagnell crowd on the Sunday.

Sorry to bother you.

Can you list the Ipswich away per game please
Out of interest, what are you looking to prove here? We definitely sold out a majority of our away games. I don’t know why you think that isn’t the case when the away ends in this league are usually under 1500.

Are they?

Not sure you're correct, Ipswich averaged 1,799 away last season, Wednesday 2,464, now we sold out a far chunk but not all so how do you explain the 650+ difference

Last season from memory Fleetwood and AFCW offered under 1,500 in general

How do I explain the difference? It’s an average? That doesn’t mean for the smaller grounds, both clubs wouldn’t sell them out. Which we did. I did a lot of away games last year and we sold out the allocation for nearly all before Christmas. I think there was only 2 we didn’t.

Away League Fixtures in order 2021/2022:
Burton - Sold Out
Cheltenham (midweek) - Sold Out
Lincoln - Sold Out
Accrington - Not
Cambridge - Sold Out
Portsmouth (midweek) - Not (albeit close)
Plymouth - Sold Out
Wycombe (midweek) - Sold Out
Sunderland - Sold Out
Charlton (midweek) - Sold Out
Wigan - Not
Gillingham - Sold Out

So 9 of our first 12 away games - including 4 midweeks - we sold out. A majority as I had said.

Including trips to Plymouth and Sunderland which are very very long journeys from Suffolk. So my original point that we might well be potentially selling out Port Vale is valid.

Sunderland was 2k, allocation 2.8k
Cheltenham only give you 1k?
Pompey 700 light
Plymouth can ask for more but fair following that
Gills, 300 short before the side stand offering
