Postby Martin Toms » Thu Sep 07, 2017 2:28 pm

Is that a misprint at the end, surely it should read a crowd of over 3000 is expected to attend not 2000?

Exeter have sold their allocation of 800, surely for a home game against the league leaders, and a south west derby of sorts we should be comfortably hitting 3000 + ??

Also why is the away allocation only 800, doesn't the ground hold 4000 or 5000 and if we don't sell out with our own fans can't we afford the likes of Exeter and Swindon who have a good following more away tickets? The stand behind the goal which used to be for away fans has been fairly sparse with our fans, why not sell that out and maximise our income?

I guess we have sold well over 2000 in total already - so yes Martin, up towards 3000 would be my prediction. It's good to hear the 'Park & Ride' is operating.

No misprint. I can't see the crowd being more than 3,000 but hope I'm proved wrong.
I understand the club limiting the away allocation, why would they want to give the visitors an advantage? Remember Bristol Rovers a few years back...

We got over 2000 home fans against Yeovil, and demand will surely be greater for this one.

I think it will be more than 2,000 but just shy of 3,000.

Fair enough. Could well be a high 2,000, would be good to break 3 though.

We should smash 3000 I would hope 3500 plus.

Is poor that the away allocation is only 800. I'm sure we had 1100+ on the wet terrace for the Derby game??

Would be great to break 3k.

Looking forward to getting behind the lads. Heres hoping for a good performance and that the mass of Exeter fans go home empty handed.

Isn't it because of the 'bigger gantry for tv' that is needed now we are in L2?

i can't see it being above 3000.

that would mean 2200 home supporters-where has that happened apart from cup game v derby *(think it was derby ) a few seasons ago .

hope i am wrong .

most of us probably 'think' it should be above 3000 -but thinking and justifying is not achieving.

again-hope i am wrong-but from where all of a sudden-will over 2000 home supporters derive from.

it has to be said-that some of the less regular-will look at recent results/weather and stay away.
not that it matters-but i can't get there saturday, but am looking forward to tuesday nights game

2600 imo.

I was at the Barnet game and I'm sure I noticed that the gantry is now outside the wall straddling the pathway.

Is it not because the terrace is roped off now towards the changing areas. Either way, 800/1100 very damp looking Exeter fans on the Wet Terrace this weekend. Prepare for the North Stand to be vacated.

Good point about schools going back and kids starting their own games which deflect them from this. But 5 of the 9 sections of the east stand are full and the others are about 50% full so its not a bad turn out with still a day to go before the event.

I have consistently underestimated our crowds so far this year but adjusted up to expecting over 3,250 for this game. There will be a lot of Exeter so we will have to make some noise.

Re the Wet Terrace...It sounds like the roped off area is for planned seating ....perhaps Stadium Manager can explain?

Looks like's only 300/350 left in East Stand to me...still only Friday morning ....late deciders.....I just hope box office/security are pre-warned there might be some Exeter fans trying to get into both home ends..or have bought them online

Two wins and the Barnet feeling will be back..We need to be a fortress so that the sound we currently make generates above the visitors.The players respond.

Anyway all i care about is a win ..and then another...1000 2000 3000 ...whateveer... let's just get behind them .

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
