Miss 7 and the club can deny you renewing but selling it via the ticket exchange counts as attending



The tickets are still electronic I assume so surely if a ticket is used there is no way of telling if it is the registered holder using it or someone who has borrowed it for the day.

I'm calling bullshit on that Chelsea game, no way was there that many missing

its been like that for ages
ive been a few times and theres sometimes lots of empty seats around the stadium but sometimes there ain't but when you look at the attendance there near enough always the same
i suppose when we play macclesfield you will get a true attendance as they will count the tickets sold but then will everybody who has brought a ticket attend and will they allow for that

Maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't. But don't you think the extra 20 thousand odd extra seats have got something to do with that. ;)

In any case I thought both those games were a near sell out. Certainly not as many empty seats as is usually the case as far as I saw.


Going back quite a few years to the old turn style system at Upton. Countless times they would let 2 in as one and get bung a fiver. 35 thousand was more like 38. and 38 was 40.
Was in the chicken run as a nipper and the steward pulled me over the barrier and i sat that side because the gate guys let to many in.

That's the away end isn't it?
Where, from up there they seem to have no problem making a noise and connecting with their team.
