    In this new league that is setup this year, will there be official attendances produced?

    Official attendences have always been produced by all clubs AFAIK and submitted but only a few clubs release the figures to the public.

    Yeah that's the problem up here in Northern Ireland.

    The only club that openly produces the official attendances is Glentoran.

    Coleraine attendances are announced on the Irish League forums by supporters but afaik are not released to main stream media.

    Have to agree here, some of the ones settled on last year were clearly wide of the mark!

    Does anyone else think that Dublin City's attendance figures should be removed and divided between the other clubs?
    TO TELL THE TRUTH IS REVOLUTIONARY

    The ONLY foot.ie user with a type of logic named after them!

    All of this has happened before. All of it will happen again.

    I hope everyone realises that at the end of the season the FAI are going to declare themselves a great success as the average attendance in the premier league has gone up. All that will have happened is that Dublin City (no support) are gone and Rovers (good support) are back

    I agree but I don't think anything can be done about it. Pineapple doesn't attend most games so he can only take people at their word. In the absence of official figures, this is the best we have.

    But I don't think we should do anything at all. Keep a track of clubs who do announce figures and nothing else. Even last week when pats announce a crowd 1,600 as the official figure. People were arguing sying there was over 2,000 there. Thats a sizeable increase and IMO it happens at every game.

    Fair enough, we disagree so. I find the numbers interesting, if a bit inaccurate (I suppose noone's forcing you to read them). The only problem I see is when these unofficial and inaccurate figures find there way into official documents and are presented as fact, when they should be presented as FACT...

    I see your point, it's a bit like opinion polls in politics. All the same, I think they're better than nothing.

    No huge problem either way with posting up unofficial figures, at least it gives a rough idea of the attendance trends at a particular club. It should have been part of the deal for the new league that every club published the correct figures, or else the FAI should have taken this on themselves. Head-in-the-sand approach does us no favours in the long-run - if the attendances are embarrassingly low that's no excuse to ignore them. Publishing them may force someone to do something about it.

    Still can't get over how Genesis were allowed to use those guesstimates in their official report on the future of the league.

    Oh sorry, was that a criticism

    I don't care. It was ****ing stupid.

    it is nice to see that sligo rovers are the third best supported team in the country. this does not say much for the dublin teams
    Derry City 3.200
    Cork City 2.941
    Sligo Rovers 1.806.
    its amazing with all this that not one league match was shown live last year despite the fact that we finished fifth.
    we dont want to be seen as whingers but even galway v athlone was shown last year on TG4.
    i dont think a very good season is likely for rovers but no sign of us in this years tv plans either.
    before anyone mentions the cup semi-final v derry last year they were obliged to show the match
    wishing all clubs and fans the best for the new year
