  1. Barca had 42k for a league match last year as well. Never happens at our place.

    Yes it was on TV . Strange match that didn't feel like a derby

    That sounds like your opinion not Pep's.

    I don't give a fuck what he says. Can't understand half of it anyway.

    I remember the first derby after we were promoted in 85 and there were circa 48000 there, the 5-1 there were 47 or 48 so what happened for this one - must've been something more than just us being rubbish and live tv

    You might be right about 48k. I think it was a capacity of 52k for Charlton in ‘85, but Bradford might have led to the fire regs changing in stadiums. That’s certainly ringing a bell. it definitely went down around that time without the stadium changing.

    Yes, Big Mick’s header. Fucking brilliant goal. It was a Sunday afternoon iirc and live on ITV. No other reason for the low crowd as far as I can remember. No stands closed, no. United fans were (inter alia) in the Platt Lane. Crowd of 32 to 35k seemed about right from what I recall. Definitely less than 40k.

    We have a better attendance to capacity ratio than Liverpool in the Prem - this season and last. We had a big crowd for Port Vale, but on some very rare occasions like today when fans are saving the money for Weds and Madrid, and obviously it doesn't look great on tv - but then again I wouldn't know as I was there. MU have had some half empty stadiums recently - not much said about that apart from excuses from Tyler.
