Championship: Boro Average Home[4th] - Away[8th] - Overall[4th] - Attendances 22/23

Interesting to see how the fans still support the club through thick and thin.
The first 11 games were dire [apart from beating the Mackems], so those figures are impressive.
The site allows us to go back each season to make comparisons - if anyone is interested.
Its a testament of belief by us in Carrick and the lads(y)

The away attendance is the average attendance of the HOME sides combined when the away team in town

Crazy quoting my own .. that doesn't make sense, somehow .. it SHOULD be that .. but then looking at the averages - it doesn't add up ..

The abysmal start is history, but the amazing transformation sees us in 4th spot at home and looking likely to surpass Norwich anytime soon.

I don't think we'll surpass Norwich. I reckon we'd need to average 29-30k for the remaining games.

I actually think norwich will keep attendance higher than ours as they’ll go on a decent run.
I think we may get the opportunity to get our own back over them in may

So even though boro and sunlan sell out most away ends there is more home fans in stadiums to watch their team play rotherham

The stats speak for themselves ... great numbers currently given the current price of football we're nearly on a par with the average crowd the season after we last dropped out the Premier League

Some strange stats in amongst this lot ... we were better supported Colin Todd's soul season in charge than we were for Lennie's promotion season

There's a repeating pattern with top flight attendances after the boom of the 74/75 season you can see attendances dropping off season by season until our massive decline in the early to mid 80s

After 2004/05 full houses at the Riverside are few and far between, surprisingly filling the corner in only actually benefited us for the 1st two seasons with regards to regular attendances of 33k+ (I'm assuming we were still at season card sell out status at this point)

Quite a few of our highest gates were reduced ticket price games Coventry at the end of the 2009/10 certainly was I'm pretty sure season card holders could bring someone for a fiver if they filled a form out with the person's details they were buying the extra ticket for

West Ham 89/90 was the game you had to attend to be 'guaranteed' a ZDS Cup Final Ticket
What happened in 2006/07 for Charlton to be the biggest home gate of the season? I think this game may have been kids for a quid?

Sheff Wed was a ticket deal in 2012/13 as was Bolton the following season for Karanka's first game in charge

for the record them up the A19 win the trophy for best supported club between the 2 of us (but I think we secretly already knew that ... just as well big crowds don't win you promotion

Right ... what can I study next haha
