So what will be the excuse in two weeks time then t'Cods come to town?
1pm Kick off?
Kids back at school (so they've had to spend it on a new uniform?
They've not finished the new terracing on the Bish yet?
A 305 drop on home attendance and for a localish derby .
Seems more folk have gone on holiday to Skeg to join the others that've 'stay over' for an extra couple of weeks when they went on Bank Holiday weekend
Oh wait, no silly me it'll be the 1pm kick off wont it.
Therefore the folk of the town will 'up' the home crowd in two weeks time against Camb Utd when we've beaten the Chairboys and Imps won't they eh?
Most Stags fans see Luton as more of a grudge match than Grimsby. That's why more turned out for that. And your constant drivel about crowds is starting to come undone. Crowds are on the up overall.
2016/17 saw a 9% increase in average attendences - up to 3,774.
This season so far, we are averaging 4,372. Early as it may be and as likely as it is that that figure will decrease at some point, it's still on the up overall. Why you feel the need to try to find any little excuse to moan about attendences is beyond me. You're the new Norman.
