I don’t get people saying the boycott failed. What would’ve been a success, Mike Ashley selling up on Monday morning? People stayed away, the exercised their dignity in refusing to be taken for a ride. They made a statement, they might have started something that will grow.

Whether tens of thousands join is not the only way to judge it. The people who stayed away did the right thing, that’s first and foremost.

This and numbers will fall further if results carry on
 plus some that did boycott ( Newcastle fans tv for example) saying well won’t be doing that again not good enough blaming the people that tried to organaise the whole thing divnt f***ing blame them, rip into ur fellow fan who didn’t participate because everyone in that stadium knew what was planned.

Disagree with this like. Aye people who stayed away 100% did the right thing, no denying it but the amount of people who done it is the only way to judge it.

I think it failed.  For me a successful boycott would have left no debate about the attendance etc, clearly visible masses of empty seats that get a lot of attention in the media.

But nah, a few largely unseen empty seats, questionable photos of empty seats in the east stand with the time cut off clearly when people are heading to the concourse can't be classed as successful imo.

Hopefully it does grow, but can't see it considering arsenal was well publicised and the place was still full.

There were quite a few single seats dotted about, unless you are looking out for them it can look totally full, add all of those single seats up, with the empty areas at the back of gallowgate etc, i don't see why 42k seems unreasonable.

Because it didn’t look a fifth down, and in anyway 42,000 turned up at a boycott, a waste of f***ing time man. :lol:

It did like. Lots of areas with huge swaithes of empty seats. Back of the Gallowgate, Upper Leazes,  all over Level 7, Platinum club all well under 80% occupied and loads of 2s, 3s and 4s empty dotted around the rest of the ground, even in the central seats in the East Stand. I think low 40k or in other words 80% full looked about right. Certainly no more than that. Much less people inside than at any game last season and we dipped to 48k v Burnley as a comparison.

Also the stadium plan can be rather misleading. They had sections W and X in the Leazes L4 as being sold out but they turned out to be less than half full.


Mate I couldn’t give a f***, either way you look at it, the whole thing was a failure.

At one point during a break in play the Sky cameras panned around at the huge swaithes of empty seats and mentioned a lot of people hadn't turned up so, yes, it could have been better but it wasn't the total disaster you say it was in my opinion.

Anyway Bruce's football and the defeats mounting up will see another 10/15k walk away by Christmas.

The current League Cup sales are embarrassing :)

Do you mean that as not many sold or embarrassing because the amount sold is high?

So it looks like they arent open the following areas:

- All of Level 7
- Leazes Milburn Corner
- Gallowgate Milburn Corner
- Back of Gallowgate (ThanksToonArmy1892)
(Not sure where away fans are going)

Fans can buy tickets in 89 of the 268 blocks with a total capacity of 26697, just 4841 tickets have been sold in those blocks (as of 10pm last night)

Tickets are now on general sale which means ST holders have had the opportunity and now missed their chance to guarantee their seats

Still be over 10k , I reckon 16k tops .

Again it will mean nothing, folk from around the country won’t bat an eye lid, only a PL game with 10k would make headline news, nothing else. :whatdidido:

Cos it has hardly happened yet, when the defeats keep coming, people will drift away and he will notice.

He's a greedy c***, he wants as much money as he can get, people might say ticket sales are a drop in the ocean to him, maybe so, it's still money he is missing out on.

Greed knows no bounds.

I can't remember the exact number, but I think I read somewhere that matchday income was 10-15% of the clubs revenue. Any business that suddenly loses 10-15% of their revenue without cutting costs will feel it. It might not impact the club at first, but 1-2 years down the line it won't be sustainable and would most likely result in relegation (we got Bruce now though so this part will most likely to fix itself).

After relegation the match day income becomes even more important due to loss of tv income and this is where it will become painful for Ashley to run the club if people stop attending, if not impossible. Either he will have to cut costs down to the bone, write off a big loss and start running us as a league 1/low championship club, or he cuts his losses and sells while he can still get something back from his investment. The club isn't worth anything to him/SD unless it is in the PL.

The only thing we would have to worry about in that scenario would be that he sells to some chancers that would agree to keep any company associated with Ashley on existing deals (advertisement, club shop, catering etc) for a long period or indefinitely. It's a risk worth taking though.
