Attendances (Multiple Merged Threads)

Crowd of “over 60,000” expected tomorrow. Not sure if we are supposed to be impressed by that figure, since 60,000 should really be the bare minimum for a game like this. With two local well-supported clubs involved, it should be in sell out territory.

Looks fairly full on map when I was looking for another seat for a late entry to our group (we got lucky with a nearby single seat)

Don't think they haven't opened top tier yet?

65k is fine. 60-65k is disappointing. 65 to 70k good. imho.

We should remember it is World Cup year and a lot of neutrals will be buying for that.

Under normal circumstances yes, but with the World Cup coming up and cost of living rocketing I’d expect a lower crowd. 65k would be decent.

The Knowles incident wil have put plenty of people off 

Know anyone who was genuinely going to go who now isn't?

Think a lot of the Knowles stuff is internet hysteria, I doubt anyone who had tickets prior to Wednesday has chucked them in the bin as a result of that outcome. Has it put some last minute punters off? I doubt it, if they hadn’t committed by Wednesday evening, were they ever going to go?

I think a fair few last minute buyers will have been put off by the decision. It ain't gonna be thousands but some people are disillusioned with some of the goings on within the game at the minute and just won't bother.

How many is a fair few?

I'm willing to bet you could do a survey of people who didn't attend and the option, "I was infuriated by a decision made by the disciplinary panel" would be a statistical zero.
