Nearly 6,500 for a Tuesday night game against us and mostñy locals.

Got me thinking, we consider ourselves one of the better suppirtwd teams in this division but our crowds atent fantastic. I know a lot are drill disillusioned with the BOD so thay will be a factor.

Even Mansfield away, I think they got 5,500.

We can do lots better, what can the clib do to get more fans to the ground?

It would help if the 3 stooges [censored] off and took Clibbens with them, oh and cleared their debts before going. That might see 1500 return overnight.

Is that the mysterious 1500 who didn’t return when Abbott left or after Curle left?!

:p

It looks a tidy ground too, as far as I can see on the highlights.

Do you believe they were more unpopular than Jenks, Nixon and Pattison?

Have you been there?
It's a right dump. One of the reasons why they were considering moving to a new ground.

Grimsby highest average attendance since 2000 in a season is 6431 and ours is 7907.

Grimsby are coming on the back of a promotion.

Work colleague of mine who was a regular at BP for years

Saying 'I'm not going to pay when I can get the games on my fire stick'

Really sad times which will get worse when the 3pm blackout is reversed in a couple years

We seem to have built up a modest but respectable level of support given we have been struggling over recent years.
Will be interesting to see if crowds go up much if we cement our place on and around the play off places and the season wears on.
I never feel over crazy about getting a huge crowd for a game or two and then this being claimed to be our potential fan base.
Going to a couple of matches a season is completely different to going regularly, as this will never be a priority for a lot of people.
I think we have some passionate fans but perhaps not the same population to draw on as other parts of the world.

I wasn't aware of the 3pm blackout getting removed. Let me guess, the reason behind that is that premier league clubs don't play much at 3pm anymore. That will further impact our attendances. The firestick thing is even more concerning. I've got one my self and can watch our games for free but I subscribe to Ifollow and will continue to do so.

In fact, maybe I should buy a proper season ticket. I want to support the club as much as I can despite living far away. After all, there simply won't be a club if that trend continues.

Back to the main point though, I know we've had some tough years and everyone hates our owners but we are potentially at the beginning of a good spell. Simmo has had his head turned by bigger clubs, been there done that, hopefully he's at that stage where he just wants to live in Carlisle and build our club.

It's time for us to back him with our support. We should be blowing Grimsby and Mansfield away in terms of support levels, in my opinion.

Very difficult to know how much damage the current owners have done to the club since they took over. They and their debt are a massive drag on the club. Simmo is doing a brilliant job, but has a big ball and chain round his ankle.

If a few of us had done that we’d have enough money to buy the club and pay the debt off :p
6,891 at Mansfield tonight, a FRIDAY night. What will we get tomorrow, 5500, if we're lucky?

Dont know what we can do, but we have to do lots better.

Ultimately, a club's potential, success even, is a function of the size of its crowds.

I think we will be around the 5 mark again. If we go on a run and around the playoffs around December I can see more people turning out for the barrow and in particular the Bradford game on boxing day.

Today's not the best of days to judge our attendance given the full on train strike which will impact away numbers and Carlisle fans that travel from further afield.
