Barrow are flying in the opening 20 mins or so 16-6, Leigh got a fluke try.

Commentators saying there's a good crowd in attendance.


Rams 0 Toulouse 18 so far.

22-6 now biggrin.gif against a full strenght Leigh side.

HT now. biggrin.gif

12 -36 ft in Dewsbury, now 28-12 to Barrow, 12 mins in the 2nd half gone.

34-18 NOW, Barrow were a bit sloppy then after going close twice previously, deny them the BP Barrow.10mins remaining.

34-24 now Barrow have gone asleep, come on Barrow, 2072 att tonight.

Full Time 34 24, sloppy barrow gave Leigh the BP which may be vital at the seasons end.

Good fight back Leigh.

well done Barrow, I suppose at least we got the bonus point

What weird and wonderful formula are you using to get 9th?

I've been reading about talk of a 2,500 average desirable for championship clubs.

Todays game must have raised yours.

Whats it up to now?

About 1,800 ish?

Leigh was one of those games Mick was bragging hadn't been played yet to presumably bump Barrow's average to galactic proportions. One down, less and less to go.

BP you are sooooooooo desperate arnt you, bragging that we had not played Leigh, hardly, just stating the blinding obvious that wehave some of the higher placed sides to play at home which will boost our average attendance as it has tonight, so in factural terms I was right, but dont let facts get in your way will you. wacko.gif

You will be bringing several hundred fans up to Barrow for our game wont you unsure.gif

Let's be clear here. Your average last season was 2,280. Your average so far for this season is 1,872. And considering the way many of our fans were treated last time we made the trip I doubt we will travel in as many numbers next time. And your big crowd last season was Whitehaven. Do you actually think they're going to make the trip in as great numbers either this season? You are currently not a few hundred away as you've lied about in the past, you are actually over a thousand fans every game away.

Next time you want to bash my club I suggest you take all that into account.

I will try to understand some of this rambling.

1, You will be bringing less supporters this time. (you claim because of bad treatment ????) Id say its because you lose more games than you win)

2, You say Haven will bring less supporters to Barrow WHEN WE PLAY THEM........We have already played them and your right they did bring far less than usual, but they are having a terrible season and their support is voting with their feet, it was also just after the shooting tragedy , mid week and live on the box, so it did have a negative on the crowd.

You say we are over a thousand down yet, your quoted numbers imply 408 down but we still have home games to play. your posts directed to me are becoming increasingly abusive which says a lot about you.

This thread was about two top 6 sides playing each other, what a surprise to see it hijacked by Widnes troll types, whats a matter you feeling lonely or summat laugh.gif

PS, "widnes have run the bring a friend for free promotion a couple of times with great success"

Do you still count these "free fans" in your attendance figures ? We have not done these type of schemes yet, maybe we should .

1. You are a thousand down on US, as you probably well knew. You are 408 fans per game down on last season, so why on earth do you spend so long on here criticising my clubs crowds?
2. We brought a considerable amount to Batley the other day, we always bring a lot of fans. Kind of rich you expecting us to bump up your own crowds when you don't bring half as many to our place.
3. Bring a friend hasn't been used this season at all. In fact, no such schemes have.
4. This isn't trolling. You bring this on yourself. You attack Widnes at every opportunity and big up your own club. This is the natural reaction you will garner. You claim we wont bring many to your place because we're losing, yet you won the league last season and have lost considerable amounts of fans so far according to your average. Next time you want to have a crack at Widnes, I wouldn't bother. We're stronger than you in almost every area.

Where's Henderson?

So says a Widnes fan about Barrow. Er ... except winning matches. Forgive me but I thought that bit was important.
