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.

In reply to your comment Jesus, I think it was a big mistake charging children the full whack. As family
are classed in the same bubble I feel SC made a big error of judgement. Surely as the club and therefore SC needs as much revenue as possible charging kids their normal price would have brought in more more supporters and more money. Very disappointing gate for the first game in front of supporters especially as Torquay are top of the league
Brilliant point gained by the Linnets so well done to all concerned.  :scarf:

First and foremost fantastic performance.

Potential reasons for lowish crowd:
Fear of virus.....rates increasing again...many fans of a certain age
Cost..not only price high (the kids issue was probably an error) but more importantly many have been hit very hard over last 9 months.....and it's an expensive time- Christmas coming up
Cold, wet day
Possible assumption that it might be another heavy defeat to a top side
Match viewable on stream...a much cheaper warmer, safer option

...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:
