I completely agree, Deerey, but so too is anyone who thinks that gates will improve without promotion. All football fans are known to be fickle but the moaning and groaning on this board — even when we were pushing for promotion from L1 — was unbelievable.
I don’t agree with this. You’ve said yourself that the “moaning and groaning” was “unbelievable” at the top of League One, yet you say that gates will only improve with promotion. This doesn’t seem to make sense. In our last promotion season, 13/14, we averaged close to 4,000 at home. In the two seasons we reached the League One play-offs, the average attendance was between 4,300 & 4,500. It’s not a huge increase, is it? Especially when you factor in the bigger away followings in League One of clubs like Sunderland or Sheffield United.
Personally, I don’t really care which division we’re in, I’d just like us to be entertaining & winning more games than we lose. If that sees us finish 8th in League Two, I’d definitely take that over finishing, say, 19th in League One.
