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.
I think that was fairly common practice at a lot of grounds back in the days of terracing and standing mate. Decent source of income for a bloke doing a couple of hours part time on turnstile control.
