Haha.... no I just don’t understand why people are comparing us, a team in a massive city with a huge home support. To a side with bottom 5 home support. Compare their attendances to Millwall, Brentford, Bristol City, Barnsley etc. 

crazy aint it .....they have more supporters per population than we do and get criticised for not turning out .

You really aren’t getting it mate but I’m not going to argue with you about a team I have no affiliation to or really couldn’t care less about bar the fact we are playing them on saturday.

 

They are refusing to pay high ticket prices, nobody has said anything about a discount. They should pay them if they care about their club, they aren’t.

 

The end. 

 

 

Don't want to get you into a panic or owt like that lancs. But we're not playing 'em on Saturday, we're playing 'em tomorrow :picnic:

But as the below post has already established, PNE do turn out for away games.

This argument is incredibly daft. Preston are small club with decent away support, the reason for their poor attendance tomorrow is (rightly or wrongly) ticket prices. Just did a bit of googling.

 

They had 800 at Leeds at the start of the season. But for games local to us;

 

Over 2,000 at Barnsley

Over 3,000 at Sheffield United

Over 2,000 at Rotherham (last season)

 

Games further away

2,700 at Sunderland

 

Close games

7,000 at Blackburn (last season)

5,000 at Wigan (last season)

4,500 at Bolton (this season)

5,000 at Bolton (last season at cheaper prices) 

 

Their turn out is very poor, but it is because of our stupidly priced tickets. They should bite the bullet and pay, those that can but they aren’t doing. 

 

 

PNE selling 1200+POTG is surprisingly poor.  Even for a small club.

 

Its a Bank Holiday Friday, PNE are on a great run of form (18 points from last 10 league games and unbeaten in their last 11 away league games), they’re just 2 points outside the playoffs with 8 games to go and it’s only 1 and a half hours travel time.

 

I would have expected them to be bringing twice as many fans.

They are probably the most deluded club in the championship. They aren’t even the biggest club in their own city. Hope we smash them tomorrow and their players get injured again.
 

 

 

What a ***.

Pre-sold 1,400. Probably be around 1,500/1,600 there. Add that to 24/25,000 Wednesdayites and the return of fessi should make for a good atmosphere today! Buzzing for the game.

£15 for the grandstand or North. 

 

no cash purchases on the grandstand or south turnstiles, so use the new little ticket office they’ve opened opposite the players entrance.

Hardly the correspondent, you were just being naive about the effect of ticket prices. As far as I’m aware , their away attendances are actually very good for a club of their size (around 12ish) with home support bottom four. Have a hardcore bunch who travel a lot but rarely get many at home. The poor attendance tomorrow is due to ticket prices. 

Which is exactly what Chansiri wants so he'll be happy.

Just read that thread for a laugh, nice to see someone from Owlsonline trying to lick their ring piece like anyone should care about a small town in Lancashire.

 

Can’t wait to get out this league next season so we’ll never have to play the likes of Preston, Brentford and Barnsley for a long long time.

Took over 3k to Sheffield United when prices were lower to be fair, they are blaming prices on Twitter. 

 

Blimey since when did Twitter set our ticket prices? 

 

Has Chansiri outsourced this. I think we should be told...
