Get the Supporters Back In

Get the Supporters Back In

55% of those polled on this website stated that it was performances above all else that was the significant factor in this season's large drop in attendances.

Given that City are unbeaten at home and they have only conceded a single goal that may come as a surprise to some. But the performances have at times been mind numbingly dull and this poll clearly places emphasis on the product offered as the most significant factor in attendances.

Perhaps surprisingly price was only cited by 10% of those polled.

More significantly, the second highest stay away from Eastlands reason given by supporters on this site is the harrassment they receive from stewards. Being a regular in the South Stand I can sympathise. This is something the club can sort out and show that they are indeed 'supporting the supporters'.

its very sad, i would be very interested in knowing just exactly what the general consensus was for Manchester City fans upon learning that they would be leaving Maine Road for the new stadium. Was it taken lightly or as with the current circumstances we Evertonians find ourselves in regarding a potential stadium move to Kirkby, was there a split decision amongst supporters?

I wouldn't say that an average attendance of 40,000 is a large drop in numbers. One of the biggest stumbling blocks for the general drop in attendances is the amount of televised matches. As regards your comments TOFFETOWER I would say that if Everton move to a new stadium it can only be good for the future of the club. We cannot live in the past forever.

I would say a 7000 drop over three years is a large drop. The last two games have attracted 35,000ish and that isn't good enough. Too many blues have said enough is enough under the current regime. TOFFEETOWER ..... if u move it'll take time to settle. I'd have MR back and developed anyday.
