Historically, it is decent, certainly if you compare it to the 80s and 90s which were my formative years supporting SAFC. However, we are down on last season under Bruce by a couple of thousand, about 5000 down from when we first came up under Keane, and about 9000 down from under Reid.
Maybe the Reid era was a one-off, but not unreasonable to ask where so many fans have gone from four years ago when we are undoubtedly a better team and have a better manager than back then.
