A Statto's Dream

Recommended Posts

Cardiff averaging almost 450 more than the grounds capacity - thats some going !! Highest attendance nearly 5,500 over capacity. Maybe that's why the tax man is after them, they're applying the reverse logic of Wednesdays attendance fiddle.

it's not just them, a couple of years back (05/06 season) we pipped Norwich to the best watched side in the championship, it said they had 27k v Hull, when the ground holds 25,400, had it not been checked they'd have beaten us

Cardiff City attendance - 102.1% of Ground's capacity?

reminds me of the old saying - There are liars, bloody liars, and statisticians.

Another one - Don't believe everything that is in the press/ media

First of all this is not a Statto's Dream. It is a Statto's nightmare.

Cardiff's capacity is 26,828 not 20,376. If you start with an incorrect base figure, you inevitably finish up with incorrect statistics.

What exactly is 'Wednesday's attendance fiddle'? A dangerous comment I would suggest in these litigious times unless, of course, you can back up the statement.

Chill your beans brother, just reference to the age old in joke, you know what it's like when they announce the attendance at the match and everyone gives it ' don't know where you'd fit another 8 thousand* in here hey wink wink' :biggrin:

* or however many under capacity said attendance happens to be
