What do you mean by 'even you will understand'? You really can't be civil when it comes to responding to my postings can you?
I didn't ask anyone to work out average figures for all first division clubs and I definitely didn't ask you unless your initials are MD. I mentioned three, one of which, Leeds, you haven't covered anyway.
With regard to derbies, it would appear that Wigan v Saints attracted 12172 and the reverse fixture at Knowsley Rd 9438 assuming they were the respective top gates of the two clubs. Much much lower than now.
Yes, as I said, it is all relative to the particular era.
I think your first comment is a fair one, and I apologise.
But please bear in mind that;
time and time again you are provided with detailed information by me and others, and it doesn't seem to register: this occassion being an example.
you don't back up your own statements, but expect people to go to the trouble to back up theirs, which I have done in my last post.
crowds in the 70s-early eighties were lower, but Rovers were relatively low-significantly so compared to other clubs, bearing in mind that Rovers werea cup winning side and were involved in a relegation bttle-as I showed there was no significant rise in attendances during and after Rovers cup run and subsequent victory and it's attendant battle against relegation.
when it comes to civility, might I suggest that you check pout some of your own past comments, and Lowfield's lst post on thbis thread? Not that two(or more) wrongs make a right.
