Thread: Away fans...

  1. #1

    Default Away fans...

    For me one of the things i want to see added to the game is How many away fans attend the games, show if they have the support realistic, And also letting you know how much money you've gained from trips to bigger teams such as tottenham, man utd, liverpool in league cups and fa cups. I'd just like to know what my away followings are like.

    Opinions?

    If your managing Bolton or Wigan the Chairman could become annoyed when more away fans turn up than home support

    That actually happend. . .

    Accrington Stanley vs Bradford City - Saturday 20th February - Attendance 3,396 - Away attendance not exact but on the BBC show Late Kick-Off they said just over 1,800 Bradford fans made the trip and on the official Bradford City website it said on the match report. . .

    Almost 2,000 City fans made the short hop over the Pennines hoping to see the new man weave the magic that has earned him three previous promotions from this division. But nobody can work miracles in three days.
    Do your maths and thats more than the home fans

    OP i mentioned this when FM09 was out,just show in brackets the away attendence.

    FM is all about stats,and imo away attendences are stats and should be included.

    Welcome to the forum btw

    It basically already does this. My team has terrible attendance and when I play a big team one of the stands is packed with away fans and the other three just have a few of mine...

    When I was still in League Two as Accrington I had tiny home attendance and a packed away stand. Now I've been promoted I get the opposite - the Crown Ground is tiny for a League One side!

    Could also open up possiblities for away coach finances. Like theres 37 away fans 30 came on the coach so you raised £600 but petrol expenses cost £60 so overall profit of £540. It could be included under non-footballing costs.

    Ahh well you see, I've just been thinking of something that i'd actually like for a while.

    The coach idea could also include free away tickets and coaches for season ticket holders etc, or to vital games. I also think teams should play better when given a better away support or home support, as irl it does effect the players.

    But none will probably happen, See you next season Luton!
