Currently 16th in the table on attendances for league1 this season.

Pretty sure we'd be pushing the top10 if we had a capacity of 12000 which included a decent size away end.

The perfect graph to demonstrate that the only people winning during the cost of living crisis are the Tory silver generation, although appreciate that you choose to mainly view from the chaise lounge.
That and the North stand benefit scroungers.  Tongue Tongue

Very good effort verses the capacity and reliance on away fans to fill 1,000 of them.

If you like your tunes I went to see Baby Queen in Nottingham last night after first hearing of her/seeing her at Feastival earlier in the year.
She said she was no.7 in the midweek album charts. One of those selling out 400 odd sized venues, where her fanatical audience knows every word. Maybe destined for bigger things, she's very good.
I had to shuffle past some unsavoury types coming out from watching the Cult next door in Rock City.

They probably thought the same about you, with your shiny head, tank top, and elasticated jeans.  Grin

Speaking of Rock City and stalking, one of the best gigs, following Sleeper around the country in the Nineties..even got a few words with Louise Wener - well actually, she said I've seen you before, then got photos together for a German magazine.

Sorry Marvo, carry on with your stats and charts!

I think we can average over 7k this season with the likes of Bolton, Pompey, Derby, Charlton etc still to visit.
Thatís filling the stadium over 90% week in week out, still according to KT and his sunshine band we donít need any more capacity.

I was at that Sleeper gig. Also saw Suede and the Manics there in the 90ís. Simple Minds about 15 years ago who were way too loud for the venue but me and Jim had a moment, although I think he forgot about me at Delapre.

He is correct. If we were selling out and turning people away he would be wrong.

So, still not 100% then? We'd all love a bigger ground, just got to find away of paying for it. Any ideas that doesn't involve Monopoly money Guesswork?

Can I just take this opportunity to apologise to all double glazing salesmen everywhere for insulting them by suggesting Guesswork makes up one of their number. I think these 100s of deals he's on about must have something to do with selling pegs on doorsteps?

Ö..but he didnít really say that did he - saying increasing capacity is not a priority or represents a good ROI is not quite the same thing.

Football does a strange thing to people  - Iím sure you wouldnít mind me referring to you a somewhat right of centre yet you align your views with a group of individuals who and much more similar to 70ís militant shop stewards - i.e. letís get a better deal but no interest in who pays for it because the greedy bosses have got lots of money.

Can anyone tell me why they are so obsessed with more capacity. As far as I know, with the exception of games against Premier League opposition. NTFC supporters always get a seat. So what's the problem?? We look after our own just fine.

Apparently we need more capacity so people can sit next to who they want or donít get a rubbish seat. So the idea is to expand so we have more empty seats, but the people who have seats are happier. Although the top 5 most attended clubs in the Prem have an average attendance of 99 point something, so they seem to get around it? Perhaps their supporters have got no friends.

It would obviously be well over the current 100% capacity would Portsmouth, Oxford Utd, Peterborough, Charlton, Derby County, Bolton Wanderers, and every possibility Bristol Rovers at least were allowed a significantly increased capacity from the 1,250...never mind home support!

Can you not see that? No, I don't need another of your hundred business-esq monologues to try and push your agenda of why nothing can or should be done, because according to you, it makes no business sense!

I'm actually with what seems like the minority here. The ONLY way this club is going to throw of the shackles of being consistently a yo-yo League1/2 side is by increasing our capacity. It's no good waiting until that one good season (like Carr and Atkins) when we nearly make it to the Championship and saying, I know what, we'll build a bigger ground. By then its too late. Luton are a prefect example. For years they've been on about a new ground but they are now in the Premiership in that dump they call home. They've no chance but had they now got the capacity, 30,000-40,000 then who knows, they may have been able to stabilise at a higher level, like Brentford seem to have done. We have played Brentford 97 times, they have always been of similar standing to us throughout history until they got their new ground. Now look at them, we're now worlds apart. Is anybody going to try and kid me that Brentford would be in the top flight now had they still been at Griffin Park?

Sometimes you have to speculate to accumulate, it's not about the fans we have now, it's about attracting the new ones, loads of them. You can't do that at Sixfields, there simply isn't the room.
