Difference between “feel free to post if you agree with us” forum and what youre saying is that your not listening to opposing opinions on the matter

4.5k of the available 51000 seats were unsold before the game, that gives a maximum capacity in those areas of 46500, if you then add the 1220 which were press and boxes (which i know didnt come close to selling out) you get a capacity of 47.7k which nigh on identical to the announced attendance.

However...

I can prove (like i did yesterday) that attendance in certain blocks was nowhere near what was reflected in the ticketing portal.

The ENTIRE East Stand apparently had just 72 empty seats in it based on the pre match ticketing portal (which as ive stated above reflected the announced attendance), even you will be able to count 4 or 5 times as many empty seats in these photos during the game (All your photos are pre game with people stood up blocking the empty seats)




 I can give many more block examples if I need to but I doubt you will accept facts and evidence when it goes against you own feelings and beliefs

I’m happy to accept that in these photos you can see more pockets of empty seats 👍

Will be interested to see the official number if it can be had somehow... not via someone’s mate. But actual numbers.

I think we all have to accept that the protest was small but still visible to an extent.

Steve Bruce can take things from here to help dwindle the numbers. Hopefully as well as reducing the number of people going match by match, some ST holders might still be encouraged to Jack it in if they are paying monthly

How sad it is that the owner sticking his fingers up at fans, shitting on club legends and letting the stadium fall apart isn't enough to keep people away, but losing some games might.

Wonder what time those photos above were taken.  Seems to be a lot of people walking around.

Just after half time before everyone was back in their seats, perhaps?

I had a look in here before the match kicked off ,  and was disapointed to read some comments regarding a full house.
However , i watched the game on NBC Sport and thought the coverage with regards to the boycott was good  , they focused on empty seats and mentioned it a few times during the game.
I was surprised there was a lot more empty seats in the east stand than i would of anticipated.
The camera scrolled along various parts and there were 2's , 3's and 4's , little clusters of empty seats  clearly dotted all over the place.
Not easy to see at a glance from distance.
If 42 or even 45k was the true attendance , then a big well done to all involved , its a great start , i think the wor flags lot and the rest of the ashley out groups  should be commended for their efforts organising and sacrifices made for the cause..
Lets hope things start to snowball from here.
Well done to all involved.

I met up with several season ticket holders who were watching in the city centre so I would tend to agree with the lower figures being more accurate - and yes as Brucism sweeps through the team by December those visible holes may well double in size - sorry to say but the lack of cover the lack of discipline and the lack of a plan smacks of the Pardew demise and we know where that ended - this time there will be no fairytale ending where the Champions league winner comes to the rescue of Sports Direct FC - and where will our 'best' players want to be by then Titanic or the transfer lifeboat?

I’d put him between Carver and McClaren rather the lofty height of Pardewball. I wasn’t ready for the players being so clueless as to what they were supposed to do. Free fall is a real possibility.

He's below carver and all the rest like. As a manager and as a man.

How are the Watford sales looking? Will surely be sub 45k for it

There were way more than 42k there mind.

The boycott overall was a bit a failure - like always the militant element of internet forums don't reflect the behaviour of the general match going fan.

I’m sure they have??

I was there, saw it with my own eyes.  Not a chance 10,000 seats were empty (practically one in five) as is being claimed.

Have you got a set of pictures of the entire ground to disprove this then?  Having been to cup games I've got a pretty good idea of what an attendance might look like - there's no way there were 10,000 empty seats.

There’s no way of knowing unless ITK

no matter what it was a f***ing failure again, it looked fairly full and I for one was utterly shocked.

It's not up to me to disprove it, it's up to you to back up your claim.

"I was there, saw it with my eyes" isn't proving anything as unless you have the vision of an eagle and can see around corners you can't see every seat in the ground.

42k looked about right based on last seasons crowds against Burnley, Watford and Bournemouth which were 48/49k and the stadium was far, far emptier v Arsenal, certainly a lot more than 1k less than the lowest crowd last season.
