    Thanks mate.

    Thought we were a bit unlucky against the Gills, some late pressure cost us in the end. Don't think they had a shot on target until over an hour of play.

    unless I'm very much mistaken but are the 'blue few' crowds getting fewer?

    No mistake. Unfortunately, we are playing pretty poor. Very boring stuff. So I guess people don't want to pay to watch it. It's frustrating to see to be honest because its the best start to a season for us for many many years. We got a top striker scoring for fun. But because its not exciting, people don't turn up. Its like they would rather see us play well and lose than see us play crap and win.

    Bit of a tricky one, I remember listening to the phone in with Twentypence after your Blackpool game and the fans were not impressed at all by what they had seen, I don't know if things have improved since then but I believe in 'real' supporters follow their team through good and bad etc... or for some resulting in 'the straw that broke Al-Qadi's camel's back'?

    Both sides get bigger crowds when the team is doing well and attendances drop when the team is doing crap. But you will always get those hardcore supporters who goes when its good or bad, like you said. But this time are attendances have dropped when its going good. Again this is the best start for many a year for us, so you would think fans would be feeling positive and attendances would be rising. Yet they are not. The football on show is not great. Some want entertainment regardless of the result. Some refuse to go until the owners are out. But im like you. I was Rovers before this manager. I will be Rovers after this manager. I was Rovers before these owners an I will be Rovers after these owners. Unfortunately a fair few don't feel the same. But we have that hardcore 6k that turn up no matter.

    I blame the shrinking crowds down to the change to Ginsters pasties!
