Wed supporters are the most loyal there is, sell out every game, 25,000+ at Hillsborough despite a poor season every home game.

It`s just disappointing we can`t sell this game out, especially with it being on the Tv.

 

When we are back in the Prem, and every game is a sell out, you moaners remember games like this when you couldn`t be bothered to go.

FFS I'd love a pint of what you're having. Agree we have loyal supporters but not sure whether we've had 25000 Owls all season and many times it's been between 14/18000 ( Chancer thinks it's better to include the ticket holders who don't attend so when he comes to sell he can say " Well just look at our crowds "). Been going since the days of Bronco, Holliday, and Vic Mobley and have never been in a season when we've sold out every game. Can remember us having 31/32000 average twice in the middle of the Cup Final appearance in the mid 60's. Still think this could be the shock result of the season.

Exactly this...... but the worst thing about it is the kid, the next generation who are coming through. This should really be a great opportunity for some of the young uns seeing Wednesday against world class opposition in a noisy colourful stadium, but recent performances are killing peoples excitement.


We take 3 lads with us, all season ticket holders aged 8 to 16. You can see their enthusuasm being drained out of them. Going to Hillsborough isnt fun any more and you can see it in their faces that the abject performances are ruining ot for a whole generation of future owls. I remember past games where we had gotten beat, yet the fans still made some noise. There was often a loud rallying cry from the fans if we fell behind. But lately supporters are reflecting the players with their "CBA" attitude.

 

When it starts to feel like a chore to the kids... thats when we have a real problem

its the same with my kids they are losing interest and youngest im almost forcing to go lately. its plain an obvious that the players aint putting in enough effort ,look on Saturday how little closing down what was been done. man city could easily get 10 tonight , but they might just settle for 3 and then just keep the ball and slow the game down and save energy for wkd and next week.

That is part of the problem not just with our football club but all of them. They trade off this misplaced loyalty of fans, that you can constantly charge top dollar for a poor product and experience, like many that aspect you mention of being there just in case has probably driven a lot of people. 

 

Unfortunately I just think that is becoming weakened. That trade off of one good game / performance for the 10 mundane or rubbish ones is just too great 

 

I spent 5 hours on Saturday travelling, I wrestled the car back through Jorge. For a game that was over in 30 minutes 


misplaced loyalty ?

 

where else should we place it.

Hold onto it until there's somewhere worthwhile to put it.

Sorry that should be sell out every AWAY game, and which two Wed fans gave this a negative mark?

are you saying Wed fans aren`t loyal? , or are you the usual armchair `fans`

Basically is there any scenario where we would have sold out tonight? Maybe if it was the pigs?

 

If we were playing good football, scoring goals, near the top of the league and we had a manager that actually inspired you, then I think we would have sold out tonight.

‘if you don’t go tonight then you should be banned from seeing us when we are successful again’ lot

We have a good away support but don’t think we sold out Blackburn or Wigan away this season. Be surprised if we sell out Bristol City or Swansea aswell

have a look online at seats sold you will be shocked . not much over 16000 inc 4500 city supporters . unless there has been a big late surge in sales .

would have sold blackburn out but £40 put a lot off . wigan away was impossible for most of us once it was moved to tues night on a Saturday we might have been pushing 5000 . we sold 8000 at city in cup 4-5years ago and would have took many more if given tickets. our hardcore support follows us everywhere but we are mostly getting older so in 10 plus years time that figure will drop off a lot as chansiri is ruining the long term future of this club but driving supporters away and not getting younger supporters interested . its a big jump once you get to 18 and a lot cant afford it.
