    I think No 8 is questionable (have Amex attendances been lower when we are on telly to which our CEO replied no). Monday looked very sparse. Of course he has the numbers which are not published.
    Unfortunately the attendance figure relates to tickets sold, including season tickets of course. If clubs had to announce the number of people through the gates on such occasions I think there would be a difference of several thousand.

      On this occasion, watching people trying to stick up for Barber is like watching people doing the same for Cameron and his EU reform.

      Overall PB is an asset to our club, on this topic he should have taken far longer to think through his answers, sought advice from others, or better still not taken the post with the League. He comes across as total capitalist, which if you are a Tory MP is expected, but as the operational head of a COMMUNITY football club is thoughtless to say the least.

      SKY pay top dollar for the BEST games in whatever League they cover so if you're top or challenging you're going to be on the TV more than a team stuck in mid table mediocrity, always been that way so why the moaning I don't know.

      Why do you say unfortunately? Tickets sold is tickets sold. If they don't subsequently turn up so what? I really don't get this obsession with pretendance. I seriously considered buying a season ticket as a pensioner but also an ex-pat. The price is something I would hardly miss and would probably turn up 2 or 3 times a year. I figured I would be helping my club and saying thank you to Tony Bloom .
      Like I said, I don't get it.

      Because I don't see the point in clubs reading out the attendance figure if it is miles off the number of people in the stadium. The club knows their revenue from ticket sales - I am interested in how many people are there.

      It would also allow us to roughly calculate how much the club has 'made' from being on TV. If there are 6 or 7 thousand fewer people in the stadium, one would imagine that revenues would be down by £60-70k based on an average £10 per fan. Leeds obviously believe they are losing out from being on TV so much.

      It's quite easy to get.

      Itd take quite a spend per missing fan to gain the club £10 per head
