How many more swipes about "the crowd at the Final"?

I think we'll be well supported next week, but I'd rather have a Championship winning team than a team that could have taken 5,000 but aren't good enough to get there!

Next week's attendance means cock all to me - the final result will though.

Yup. Personally I couldn't care less. We will have plenty there, but really, the big thing is we will be there! Who cares what any other supporters say. They won't be there supporting their teams!

We'll take around 2000 or just over next week, judging by the turn out at Blackpool in 2010. There were plenty there today actually. Not sure how the crowd figure was 2200. Must have been the best away following Fev have had all year, surely.

Don't worry about the crowd if your a fan get there and support your team Although it won't be a massive crowd I hope the the RFL take note of who has got there again and move the final to Headingley them more might turn up

Your fans did your club proud and it was a great following; It however wasn't the biggest following by an away side that accolade must go to Fax in our 3686 league attendance and Leigh were well supported last week; However having said that I wish other teams would bring as many as you did today and the championship would prosper a little more; The official attendance was 2216 but as a regular Fev fan I can tell you that there was far more than that at the game today;

We will be there, supporting our teams.

 

If people want to sit at home waiting for the attendance to be revealed so be it.

 

I, and a number of other Eagles fans, went to Halifax for the bucket collection (2006 I think) but that has been forgotten!

 

Hope to see lots of rugby fans on Sunday, lets enjoy ourselves.

I'm currently involved in an argument on the moronic Facebook Championship 'Banter' page, who is doggedly insisting that we only took 150 fans - maximum, to Featherstone today.

Surely it is irrelevant how many was there, what mattered was which set of supporters inspired their team? the majority who were booking there tickets for the final at half time or the minority who cheered there team on to the CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL.

 dont do face ache, but ask em to look at garys pictures of bottom corner,see at least 25 batley fans on each  terrace step and theres about 12 steps,factor in those sat in seated stand and at other side,a few behind sticks too makes at least 300 to 400.i thought it looked at least 3.000 folks in the ground and top support from the fev fans for sure so i cant understand the beefing going on,  COME ON THE DOGS..

Next week's attendance means cock all to me - the final result will though.

This has been my first opportunity to extend my congratulations to the dogs for a magnificent effort - so well done boys. Not a swipe - but I'd just like to say to those "dedicated dogs supporters" who managed to get to Blackpool a few years back, but who now appear to suffer from a form of altitude sickness that prevents them from going up the hill to the mount - dust off your replica shirts and wear them with pride on Sunday IN LEIGH, not the nearest town centre boozer. (Through gritted and jealous teeth here) GO AND SUPPORT THEM your team deserve it, the club officials deserve it and the genuine week in week out supporters deserve it - GIVE EM SOME HELP ! :rtfm:

Dog for a day this weekend methinks - come on lads WIN IT FOR THE WOOLLEN. :yahoo:
