Limited to the number of tickets available and that their home attendances are far bigger.

So are Wednesdays but smaller home attendees and bigger away attendees

Seen this other day, obviously made up by a toy town fan. 

They would have taken chuff all away had they been outside top 6. 

Wednesday and Sunderland for that matter would have taken loads more away had they received bigger allocations. 

 

We probably could have sold 10,000 tickets for Doncaster and Rotherham away.

This is absolute rubbish. I believe "percent taken" is the percentage of home fans vs. away fans. Away numbers are limited to ticket allocations. So given Sunderland's greater home support, their away support is "lower"...

I got sent this by a mate, and was surprised to see Sunderland so far down list..IMG-20220517-WA0004.jpg.b9221eead1f943e6fdc8d84c2c995e9b.jpg

The home figures are not limited by capacity whereas the away figures are. Therefore the table isnt a valid statistical analysis of the premise.

Fact.

Surprised to see a team with an average home gate of 31k plus be low down an away following in comparison list to Wimbledon, morecambe, Fleetwood etc... 

 

Riigggghhghttttt

Probably the same sort of sad little Miller who ignores actual attendances but invents new and utterly irrelevant statistical categories like "percentage of empty seats in the stadium". I saw one of them trying to claim that Wednesday were the worst in Europe for this or something, until it was pointed out that we don't even come top of this "stat" for League One due to MK Dons.

Statistics can be used to bend the rules

 

Here we have Sunderland 2nd in the table for away following

 

But someone who benefits from using a different criteria, i.e. percentage, has twisted the facts

 

It's similar to the table put out earlier in the year where we were well down the list because we were selling just over half of our available seats. The stats had our capacity at 39,000 while our average attendance was around 22,000

 

Statistics can be twisted to suit an argument

 

We haven't lost to Man United or Liverpool in over 20 years, which looks like a great record until you dig deeper and realise we haven't been in the same division for that length of time.

Suppose it's easy to top the list for a small club with poor home support.  Also when their biggest game of the season is 5 miles from home with unlimited tickets available.

Going by these stats Manchester United have terrible away support with an average home attendance of 75,000 but only taking around 3,000 supporters to away games. lol

No he's a Leeds fan... but I think all local sides including Leeds take good followings away from home, and it doesn't matter if Rotherham are top its only a pro rata ..

What about Plymouth..

If they only played each other then that would make sense

 

Whereas teams like Portsmouth are quite close to Plymouth geographically, but still a great trek for Sunderland

 

Hence Sunderland have more travelling to do than any other fanbase in league 1

does the premier league have a table of average away support? most clubs give between 2-3000 , our away following is the highest in the football league , and its possible we have higher average in attending away games than most premier league clubs
