Reckon we will take the full 2,500 with it being mid week?
Just had a look at the season review on youtube, said about 9k there. Brilliant day, class when Tranmere had the penalty but we started going mental as Man U had scored at BoroI was there when there were 11,000 Sunderland supporters in a 16,000 crowd last game of the 1995/96 season.
I'm convinced that night there was at least 8000 Sunderland in the groundRemember the Friday night game.
They didn't bother making it all ticket as they must have assumed not that many would bother with it.
Put us in the 6,000 capacity kop, and by kick off it was rammed, hundreds standing in the aisles and stairwells.
Moved a load of Tranmere along a bit in the adjacent stand to make some room for the overspill.
Must have been 7,500 there, the sort of occasion that highlights just how huge this club could be, if only some fucker could run it properly.
2500 on a tues night in Jan?Yes we will
NoI’m looking to go to this one, will have a drive over after work.
On the subject of away games, is there any chance Blackpool away could be moved for internationals or whatnot?
we certainly did. away end at Prenton holds close to 7k. It was pay at the gate.We didn't have that many there surely? Thought it was more like 7/8k?
