    I was surprised to see 'big club' Woking only managed 1,881 for their triumphantly backfiring final game of the season.

    That's an average attendance for them. It was a dead rubber against opponents with relatively small travelling support, they already knew they're at home in the play-offs next weekend and potentially again the following weekend if they reach the final.

    Have you never heard: ‘build and they shall come...’

    I can't find the link now, but I recently read an article in the Non League Paper saying the club has been sold to a property developer who "knows nothing about football and doesn't know what to do with the shares". What could possibly go wrong!

    Blimey, you lot are almost as bad as Aldershot fans with the obsession over attendances. Almost...

    Our proposed new stadium is 10,000 capacity (not all-seater) which may get revised down when we try to get it through the planning stage. We don't need a 10,000 capacity, but something in the 6-8000 region with potential to expand ought to be enough for us. As long as it's suitable for promotion to the football league and it can generate enough revenue to help keep our club afloat, that'll do. And I'd much rather have a new stadium which is a bit too big, rather than one which is a bit too small. I wish you luck in your battle with Meadow, by the way.

    For what it's worth, a lot of our fanbase have serious concerns about the proposed sale of the club to a property developer with no interest in football. This hasn't actually happened yet, but it is a part of the proposal so we're more than a bit worried. Our board assure us that the contracts will be watertight and the new owner won't be able to screw the club over, but I'll believe that when I see it.

    Property developers are only ever interested in screwing clubs over if that means they can make more profit. Their promises are worthless.

    Our owners - who fluffily promised that they had the club's interests at heart - swiftly locked us out of our own ground in an infantile temper tantrum because they couldn't get what they wanted from the council.

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck with your new owners - your fans have every right to be deeply concerned.

    PS I guess our obsession with attendances is partly fuelled by the fact that it wasn't that long ago that a crowd of 500 would be seen as something of a bumper turn out!

    We were only getting around 400 just six years ago:

    Ex Landlords of the ground, not owners of the club - for sake of clarity.

    Not all of us are actually obsessed by attendance figures...

    Who are the club's landlords now? I thought it was still Meadow who are a reformed, rejigged Hadley, no?

    Sorry, they're still landlords, but have never been owners of the club.

    Hmmm... interesting looking back at your Sittingbourne report, had to smile at the claim of 20,000 crowds in the 1920s. That was on the Champion Hill before the last on on Greendale( you know, that land that’s apparently never been built on!) which had a reputed maximum capacity of ten to twelve thousand, depending on which contemporary reports you read.

    Says the bloke who goes around the ground doing a head count of Hamlet fans at away games, then tells everyone how many we've taken.

    I like to have a fairly accurate guesstimate of our away support at matches precisely because people are obsessed by our support & often exaggerated following on our travels.

    Sounds like you're obsessed about correcting people who are obsessed about away attendance figures to me.

    :D

    You are correct.. I have corrected you before...

    Definitely obsessed with correcting people then, as well as being obsessed about correcting people who are obsessed about away attendance figures. That makes you Obsessed².

    No, it means I like a bit of accuracy in attendance figures, with one of my many pet hates in football (not just some of our fans on here) is claiming they take more away than they do.

    Attendances are admittedly just one indicator of a healthy club, more importantly in our case, now vital for getting the club back on a financial footing
    As one of the fastest growing supported clubs obviously were going to take an interest in attendances,
    Yes, when we have 5th or 6th highest non league attendances on a Saturday, I feel pride that so many care and that they like our club so much they part with their money to attend.
    But its not not about numbers its about the diversity in our support base, the number of women and young children is a very healthy sign and hopefully a sign that the support for the Club will go forward to future generations

    Finally, its stats and graphs #Stato whats not to like
