I can see his point, he has put together one of the best teams in Europe who will challenge for both the Premier League and the Champions League, yet they can't sell out their ground, it can't all be about cost

Like Little Pompey, they have declared an official attendance figure which is far bigger than the real one, as you could see from the number of empty seats.

The pandemic has affected everyone.

I agree the pandemic has affected everyone, but some clubs like Liverpool, United and Chelsea are still filling their grounds and in the lower leagues attendances seem to have increased since before the outbreak.

Be interested to hear from our travelling supporters yesterday whether City get coachloads of fans rocking up from all corners of the country like United and Liverpool. I may be wrong, but despite all their domestic success I get the feeling City still don't have the allure of their neighbours.

We saw loads of Liverpool fans at the service stations yesterday. They were home to Palace. Saw a few Palace, a few Arsenal but masses of Liverpool. Didn't see many City fans travelling up but one "city fan" was on our coach, travelling up from Southampton! Because we don't sell out our away allocation, he bought a ticket in the away end and used our coach.

Liverpool and Man Utd will always sell out due to tourists.

Everton and Man City are the ‘supporters’ club.

Anfield is a complete shîthole. It’d take something special for me to go there again.

We thought that we had the answers, It was the questions we had wrong.

Spot on Wizz

When you visit Everton and City you meet proper fans who are you can have a proper conversation about the game, had great chats with several City fans on train back after game yesterday on train home all complimented us on our performance, none said they had an off day just said we stopped them playing, all fans had Manc accents

At Euston waiting for train up, full of Liverpool fans none had scouse accents, several foreign just a bunch of tourists and glory hunters a world of difference

Gets right on my nerves. Not proper fans. Easy to live 300 miles away plus and just decide to support a top team. It's particularly Liverpool. We saw loads at the service station yesterday too travelling from the south and London. They arn't even worth talking to. They don't know the passion and hurt of supporting your home club.

How do you find travelling to games further than London by train? We usually drive or go by coach to the games in the north as it's cheaper, but have thought about the train. Can you get a seat and wear your colours safely etc?

That's good Wizz. Going to Chelsea and even a trip to London can be split. With a rail card and split tickets, can go for £13. Not bad at all. Will be pleased if I can get to some northern games more cheaply on the train.

I sometimes go on own using split tickets, but book early once TV games confirmed to take advantage of advanced tickets that are reduced significantly

on Saturday chose to go up on official London Saints trip, fare £50 return from Euston,
however as we had delays on way up and back, it will be £25 as we will get 50% refund, loads of other Saints fans on train

If you book in advance you get reserved seat automatically, and on Saturday for return journey it was deemed unclassified so we sat in First Class, and never a problem wearing colours, and able to drink on train too and we normally get beers from supermarkets /shops for trip home

If you're using ticket split sites it's always worth looking at first class anyway, for Derby away in the cup a few years back first class was cheaper than normal as there was a promotion going on that hadn't been advertised and i saved about £20 by going first class instead.

Sounds good SalisburySaint. Going by train v Chelsea and will look into other games too. Coach is ok, but a bit restricted! Driving means obviously you can't drink so train sounds good.
