Football club attendances: Are fans getting the full picture? - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45158878


The BBC are very selective in their "news" pieces. They're just behind the mirror at the moment.

Clubs are compelled (I think by the FA or maybe the Premier League?) to publish 'tickets sold' per game - police are compelled (for health and safety reasons) to keep actual matchday attendance figures. It keeps coming up in the media every now and then, usually to beat us around the head with the discrepancy.

Strangely, Merseyside police are not compelled to hold that data and were therefore unable to publish it. The game we played against Southampton was apparently attended by 38k according to the police. I was at that game and there was a lot more than 38k there. One of us is lying.

A discrepancy of 15000 or so punters is equivalent to the main stand being completely empty with the rest of the ground full. Be gobsmacked if that was the case.

Absolutely and the discrepancy is about 17k. It doesn't have any balance as a story either. It's only a sample of games and only a sample of clubs.......agenda based.

I find it laughable that we are down 7500 on average yet scum manage to convince everyone that thier figures exactly match the published figures. Something not right there.

Average attendances per club
Club (% of capacity) FOI (% of capacity) Difference (% of capacity)

West Ham 55,309 (97%) 42,779* (75%) 12,530 (22%)
Man City 53,274 (97%) 45,792* (83%) 7,482 (14%)
Southampton 29,906 (92%) 25,660 (79%) 4,246 (13%)
Tottenham 61,843 (69%) 58,103 (65%) 3,740 (4%)
Chelsea 40,593 (98%) 37,088** (89%) 3,505 (8%)
Watford 20,319 (95%) 17,171*** (80%) 2,602 (15%)
Man Utd 73,575 (98%) 73,575* (98%) 0 (0%)

So the rags attendancies are 100% correct according to the BBC and the bent Merseyside Police who never see anything don't have records of anything LFC ?
Right ok flawed BBC bullshit yet again , loads and loads of empty seats at the swamp last season because the football is fucking boring shite and LFC and Merseyside are jointly corrupt as fuck but heyho both clubs are the key BBC clickbait audience ......... fuck off BBC !

Read the article this morning and it's basically a load of bullshit aimed at the click-bait Rags in order for them to try and beat us with. We've already seen that the Rags ain't full and it was reported as fact a couple of years back yet the Beeb seem to somehow get figures that say they are full every game. It's obviously sanctioned by a Rag and written by a Rag for the Rags. This is what happens when you have the Swamp across the way.

Some f the figures for us are ridiculous as you can't even imagine those games against Spurs and Liverpool weren't 99% full. Yes, we will be down in occasions due to individual personal circumstances but to the tune of 10s of thousands, you're having a laugh. Don't get me wrong, when I moved to Colin Bell 3 in the mid 00s there were plenty of seats empty, and you'd see lots in the East Stand, but that soon changed and ever since it's always been near enough full.

The biggest question for me is why they have to declare tickets sold rather than actual attendance? Is there something in the Sky/PL contract that says there could be sanctions if the clubs aren't getting over a certain percentage of bums on seats that it affects the contract. Such as, if Sky/BT is having an adverse effect on the match day fan then the packages to be shown on TV for the next contract are decreased?

Oh, and as talked about on here, we had a what looked like full house for a game last year yet it was reported that we were about 6 or 7 thousand fans short. There didn't look an empty seat in the house so it must be a reporting issue.

As for the article, the Beeb have gone out of their way, under the guidance of the ex-MUTV boss, to try and put us down again with the only thing that they think they can hurt us with. It's pathetic that the Beeb can do this but yet again, like all the sordid stuff that went on in the past, they just carry on regardless.

The police published some figures about the rag attendances about 3 years ago. they were down 10-15 thousand in some games and cup games were worse. Seems Jose's scintillating football has got them flocking back. The BBC is a propaganda outfit across all its outlets involving everything from news to politics to sport. It cannot be trusted to be honest about what day of the week it is.

Interesting, isn't it. Even the match going Rags won't believe that as I know from a first-hand source who admits to their being many empty seats. Like I said earlier, it's normal, and always has been, for people not to turn up, but it seems the RBC has gone full tilt and we can't now trust a thing it says.

I've wondered for a while now why when people do this FoI shit, they use the Police for that info rather than going to the club?

Am listening to this week's episode of a Swedish Premier League pod cast and of course they bring up the BBC report and swallow it whole without any criticism or reflection. The host also claimed that there are far more United supporters than City supporters in Manchester and claimed that City are presenting inflated numbers because we are a propaganda project. Sigh ...

And still turned in a £10M profit after spending a lot last year. Given that our net spend this year is only about £25M so far, we might just smash the profits next year allowing a mega money transfer next summer

If you want a real laugh, go and checkout the comments on the BBC article about Silva. The highlight has to be some rag mong saying Silva isnt even good enough to make the rags reserve bench
