Tomorrow is the 3rd game we've had at home on a Tuesday night this season, there is another one next month v Fleetwood. So 4 mid week games at home but none away. Can't see the crowd tomorrow or v Fleetwood being much more than 5,000. Compared to a Saturday when we probably would have got 7,000 for Shrewsbury and 6,500 for Fleetwood.

They have to squeeze them in.

Not much anyone can do about it to be fair, and without decent offers most of that batch of Tuesday games are pretty unappealing.

They could have done a "Four Nights Under The Lights" mini ticket for £40 or the like...........instead of looking at 6,000+ empty seats. 🤷‍♀️

Agreed we are really lucky we are at home for 4 Tuesday night games rather than away!!?

Not sure what difference it makes to those that don’t bother going either way. :rolleyes:

They could of, but so far they haven't offered any kind of deals on matches other then a season ticket. Poor considering the Scum down the road keep doing kids for a £1 anywhere in the ground and are averaging 8.5k home fans in the league below .

£10 adults £5 concessions for Morecombe match announced last week.

Flexi ticket buys 6 matches at a discount.

Morecambe deal is excellent to get people "hooked" which is what we need to do.

The Flexi ticket deal is less so, it saves about 90p on an East Stand ticket.

Mind you it makes little sense to me that the North Stand is £4 more than the East for the same "experience" purely from a different angle. 🤷‍♀️

Suppose it can be added to the list of excuses for not bothering to attend.

Tuesday night games are always appealing! Evening matches have been fun going back to the Manor days.

Indeed, however, that may have been more to do with who we were playing then as opposed to now.

Midweek Cup replays or second legs at the Manor were the best! :)

There just seem to be more midweek league games these days.... I`m sure some statistician could confirm or debunk that.

We play good teams now, at the Manor we generally played similar ones. I think you’re harking back to a short period when we were regularly playing Man U.

Looking like being a touch damp later but can't be as wet as the Accrington game! Hope the game is as good though!

I hate midweek games. Yes I was there in the 80s for the great cup runs and they were different, full of atmosphere, the excitement of a potential cup shock, big crowds. Even for 'normal' league games at the Manor midweek games were great.
But these days (aside from the occasional biggie eg Man City, West Ham), it's generally midweek games against a poorly supported team from oop North who will bring 83 fans, the weather's p***ing it down and windy, and I've had a mare of a day at work and have to scoff down some nosh just to get out of the house on time.
But I'll still be there tonight! COYY.
