I await the 'it's unfair for Spurs to be playing in a stadium that big' excuses after the Wembley curse bollocks went up in smoke

It's been awhile since I saw one of those posts that used to pop up every few weeks in the New Stadium thread: about how we wouldn't be able to fill a 55,000-seat stadium, so we shouldn't make it any bigger than that.

It’s probably worth mentioning at some stage that I’ve had 15 seats around me empty all season. I’d expect it for Swansea and West Brom but Real, Dortmund, Liverpool and now last night... they will be empty for arsenal as well. There is a very good chance the record will be broken but I suspect every block has 5% empty seats, maybe more.

No big deal, just a thought

Wow. If each block was 5% empty and there are 20 blocks that means the ground was 100% empty.

Man U have always had a sniffy, patronising attitude to us, embodied by Ferguson's half time comment about us. Well, you got it dished up ice cold, didn't you?

Brilliant last night, but 2hrs 10 each way was a little painful. Weekends we make a day of it, but evening games trickier with work etc. I will be missing Newport next week simply because of the travel. I respect all those that make the effort but I'm sometimes one of your 5%. Although I will be sneaking out early for the Juve game!
I had a statto moment and checked out average attendances in Europe. Dortmund, Bayern, Mancs and Real are the only 4 clubs with higher average attendances this season than us! :)
Superb effort from all the fans I reckon!

That's so true, I'd forgotten about that!

Can someone explain this to me a ground that is supposed to have a capacity of 90000 , attendance against Man U almost 82000, so where were there 8000 empty seats, a few roped off seats either side of Man U fans and odd seats empty in some blocks but that doesn't make 8000.
