Surprised at that be honest, still a great following but sure in April it was about 1400, was expecting 1700 today
I was expecting more as well. One of those games that later on in the season significantly more would have gone. Bad weather and the game being accessible through ifollow probably took a couple of hundred off. Still not a bad turnout for a 4 hour round trip.

It's about par for the course but I agree, 1,500 would have been about right given it's not a difficult trip and we're top of the league.

I was disappointed in our following today, vocally decent but was hoping for 1,000.

731 is okay but nothing to write home about.

Why are lincoln fans saying 1165 isnt a good following when only a few years ago a trip to vale would have seen about 300 away fans there.
I'm still receiving therapy for that Tuesday night one in the snow when Ian Pearce scored a back pass in the first couple of minutes.

Yep- thought we would be 1500 today so around 250 less than last season (albeit today is earlier in the season).

Our away following has been unusual this season- sold out Sixfields but the 754 at Cheltenham was only 6 more than last season. Thought we would sell out Macc but (at 1161) was about 200 short.

Likelihood is we will still take 4,500 to County in Feb and will sell out Mansfield.

Cambridge on Xmas Saturday will likely be touching 2000 but I doubt we will take 400 down to Yeovil in November.

It is all relative- it wasn't that long ago the thought of 4 figure away followings was the stuff of myth and legend we had fallen so low.

Hearing that we’ve already sold most of our allocation of 600 for Cambridge away next weekend. Considering it’s pay on the day we may actually take 1000 to somewhere other than just Northampton this season.
Bet it won`t be Prenton Park. Never seen more than 100 of you yet. Even now that some of you have actually discovered away travel you will never get the sort of travelling support the likes of , dare I say, Tranmere, Oldham etc have.

Yes of course you did... That would mean we had fewer home fans than on a Tuesday night against Stevenage...
The attendance Saturday was 4506 with officially 300 Swindon fans. Your last Saturday game was Cheltenham with the attendance of 3723 including Cheltenham fans. There’s a disparity of 800 fans which I doubt were all Exeter fans.

Well of course not considering the distance and our usual travel numbers, we’ll likely take around 300-400 considering the distance.

Believe me, there were a lot more Exeter fans there on Saturday. We have had 4500 before, so no way we're there 700+ Swindon in there. Odd that you claim there were so many on the Bank when you didn't even fill out your own allocation.

Tranmere fans, how many tickets do you allocate to away fans these days?
I think it is about 1,600 generally, but I believe there is scope to increase to 2,000 plus now that the front rows of the Cowshed Stand have been repaired. Somebody might correct me on this though.

I take it you expect to sell out in November ?
