Torquay not being very complimentary on their forum regarding the pitch at the Walks.

"Mudheap" and "worst in the National Leage" are just two comments.

Thankfully Torquay Manager viewed matters differently and is more realistic about the reason behind the points being shared.

...and looking at the rest of the league, the vast majority had crowds in the 700's, so more the mood of the nation rather than a local phenomenon

The new normal until the start of next season?   :dontknow:

Excellent result and performance today it seems, so well done to the team. Not surprised at the low crowd attendance at all although it was even worse than I forecast.

Same here. I didn't expect it to be anywhere near capacity but I didn't expect it to be at the levels we had when in UCL.

It's anyone's guess why people didn't attend. I would guess peoples reasons will be varied, but personally I would assume its the fear of the virus (sensible) and the hike in ticket prices (especially at this time of year) that played the major roles.

Great result and performance though................I really didn't expect that either.

Mr Cleeve surprised at 500-600 and blames the Government for putting the fear of God into people I think 60,000 deaths may be more the reason Mr Cleeve. Get real. People will not risk dying before the vaccine by watching a football match

If the Government have put the fear of God into people then well done them!

I guess there canít be many left now and just hoovering up the last few tickets this morning.

I'm not so sure on that one. It will be an interesting one to see.

Somebody has said on another thread about 1,000 to 1,100.

Personally I would think anywhere near a thousand would be a good result and although would obviously not be what Cleeve would want, from zero to a 1000 is not to be sniffed at and should be regarded as a sucess.

Lots of things coming into play at moment. Obviously a very serious Pandemic, big price hike, dislike of social distancing rules, concern that people will not observe such rules, lack of seating due to restrictions, Christmas shopping and the expense involvec, reduced income for many due to Covid, current form of the team etc etc.

On the positive side, the game is against the league leaders.

Crowd behaves and then build from there again, especially if we get the better of Torquay today.

I don't know quite how this would work as no tickets are being sold at box office, but Cleeve has tweeted along the lines of if you have already purchase a ticket (presumably on line),  you can buy more, so bring a friend.

I donít see the club is charging double the normal price.   They have just loaded it slightly to reflect the fact that no everyone who wants to be there, can be there.

I take it tomorrow has sold out by now.   

As for the Landlord prices I guess it depends if itís multi packs from Tescoís

Well I am sorry....but you wouldnt expect your local pub to charge £10.00 a pint when they re-open just because they have been shut because of lockdown. :dontknow:

I think that would depend on who the Landlord is.  :dontknow:

Not impressed with those B&G.   Millie Dilly would be better if with the old school DFF

The £30 ones from Aldi ain't a lot of good Mallard.

As with everything, you need to invest in quality to get results, and be prepared to keep updating. No good living on the results of your past air fried chicken!

Is that Milly Dilly ?   I hope you are treating her well for Crimbo Dilly.   Deep fat fryer ?  :mystic:
Old School.

The in thing these days is the Ninja air fryer.
