Why would other clubs playing tonight have any relevance?
No way in a million years was that crowd anything like 43426 ... they had even shut some of the bats in EL3 as there were so few people there
While we’d all prefer a full stadium, it’s the League Cup and the lowest priority for most people. The rags were 10k below capacity in their home semi-final leg last season.
That was your measure- same as any other club. If the game was tomorrow the crowd would have been more, just like the Ipswich game that called called postponed then got a much bigger crowd in the quarters. The night makes a difference especially when close to the cheapest Saturday game of the season by far.
That was more or less what I predicted when I looked at the stands. We had 53k paying for FA Cup at the weekend. Can't really fault almost 100k over 3 days.
probably only Liverpool or Utd would have got more, and I'd like to see what their crowds are going to be like in a few years time.
Teams in CL should not be in it for me.
Understand where you're coming from, but the more games we play, the better for me. City are a source of entertainment (this season especially) so playing in less competitions is less entertaining over the course of a season imo. The League Cup is a good chance for the youngsters/second XI to play so it's not exactly exhausting the players. I know it's expensive for people but hopefully next season, the club will learn from tonight and price tickets at £10, with kids for a quid. Couldn't care less what United fans think about our attendance.
Teams in both European competitions shouldn’t be in it. That way there’s fewer fixtures for those teams, at a time when they’re involved in group games. Also it means that a team that wouldn’t probably normally get into the EL gets a chance to play in it and therefore even has a crack at potentially getting into the CL.
As I've said before; I can't see UEFA maintaining a spot for the winners if the top teams in the country don't contest it.
It was 43,326 - there were 2000 empty in the lower tier - so 23,000 plus 2,000 empty middle tier - another 11,000, 5000 in the South Upper Tier - that's is 39,000 and another 4,000 in total in the East and West 3rd tiers.
