    I know its probably too much work but attendances this season adjusted against previous seasons with the change in the number of home games, especially against either competing teams or those that traditionally gets number through the turnstiles would be interesting.
    There is a steady fall in the average year on year going to Oriel for the last 3 years anyway and that 949 shows how poor things got in 2012 - only so many 6-0 hammerings people can take obviously. Cork have significant increases the last 2 years but that 2533 is a bit of a surprise in contrast to general perception while challenging but the level to aspire to overall. Shamrock rovers' average should be better back imo, I'd have thought there'd be an average closer to the 4k 2011 or so tbh. Sligo's is good and very constant and if challenging can certainly grow. Derry have benefitted with the revamp of the Brandywell and Bohs stock is growing. Wateford obviously getting promoted has kicked them on. Looking at the 1st Division its only Harps and Galways that look like they'd grow overall Premier division attendances, maybe Drogheda too.

    Get your excuses in early it seems..
    The league winners and yet the apathy amongst fans in the "detown" is palpable. Perhaps making it a better experience to visit oriel pk would improve attendances?
    Then again, what do I know.

    I think that study would have too many mitigating factors involved to make it any way accurate Nesta.

    Do you add in extra games for other seasons? Do you take out a round of games this season? Games against relegated/promoted sides? Extra/less derby games?

    I think the average attendance is as good as you get in this regard. Obviously someone chasing a title, or change in league, or drop down the table would have a difference on your average. I think in this regard, Bohs and Pats are the only ones showing a relatively decent organic growth, for want of a better word. Seeing as their league performances haven't really improved to a major extent this past two or three years, the steady rise in their average attendance's are probably the most impressive of the lot.

    I've been pretty regular at Drogheda this season and last, and find it hard to believe that the attendance has more than halved in 2018. It doesn't seem like that from the terraces. I don't think the club gives official attendances.

    I've been in Drogheda three times this year, for two games that were played and one that was called off five minutes after scheduled kick-off. Shocked at how poor the crowd was on each occasion.

    I've official figures for all but five of their games. Only four of their attendances this season have been over 400.

    I will live with it. I wasnt pointing out clubs' attendances in isolation though with a big 'hah hah'. You did though, like a child that has found a selection box early you couldnt resist the temptation! A swipe at the fans, Oriel Park, Dundalk so TT is right **Groan** cause the bitterness oozes from you and it is most definately palpable. You do see that that by and large there isnt that much difference in attendances between Dundalk and Rovers? Yes as league champions even bigger crowds would be hoped for but population and facilities are mitgating factors. Whats was Rovers issue as 2010/11 isnt that spectacular for a club the size of Rovers? Genuine question as the choice of Tallaght as a base was so that there would be a fanbase, the efforts of Bohs without competing for Europe shows that support can be grown through embedding in the community. Is it complacency, disillusionment, disconnection with the wider community? The fall in support in Dundalk imo is complacency but it isnt off the curve just yet.

    Yep, same here on our two trips. Zero vocal support, was shocked at how poor it was

    2486 announced at Turners Cross. Was nowhere near that. People were actually laughing when that figure was announced.

    Crap place to judge a crowd but maybe 800-900 in Drogheda tonight?

    About 300 down from Harps. Expected more traveling if I'm honest.

    Saw a photo of the Harps support, no way thatís 300. We brought far more a couple of weeks ago (as you would expect given its only 2 hours away) and I wouldíve said we hadnít 200-250. Anyway, would hope ye get a bumper crowd next week, surely 1000+?
