    Today - Biggest Home Support since?

    Only 1500 QPR, so around 28,600 Albion supporters in the crowd. When was the last time that happened at home?

    We've had a few 30k crowds at the Amex but often with big away support. Pre-Amex era?

      Division 2 or 3 in the seventies. Ipswich and Derby in the Cup. Palace and Sheffield Weds as we got promoted from Division three spring to mind. None whilst we were in the top flight, maybe Norwich, Man City or Liverpool in the FA Cup?

      Norwich QF 28,600 but included the Norwich crowd. Probably only Wembley 91 and Cardiff 06 beat today in the modern era and they were in bigger arenas

      Looking at Tim Carder's book v Blackpool in April 1978 pulled 33k, doubt if there were many that weren't Albion.

      How many tickets left for Cardiff, can't see them bringing a lot

      The clamour to get into The Goldstone that day was incredible. The North Stand was full and closed by 1.30pm - Barber would have loved it - although not sure how much they made on Wagon Wheels....

      Off the top of my head there would have been another one or two big Albion fan counts the following season? Towards the end - Charlton or Blackburn...? Bad that I can't remember the last two or three home games of 78/79 - need to read my Bible more often...
      The BHAFC forum is utter shite. They literally talk about everything except their own football club on there.

      Almost sold out when we bought ours yesterday. Very quick look at a Cardiff forum says 250 sold....!
      Barndoor Gatting, Barndoor Davies, Barndoor Holroyd, Barndoor Paynter. Who is next for this coveted title? Barnes is currently favourite to take the crown from Billy Paynter.

      One of my first and definately still my most memorable game. Convinced we were watching us going up in the belief that Spurs and Stains would play a proper game.

      The naivety of youth, and never since have I counted chickens! This season is beginning to test that!
