Arguably their biggest away game of the season yet only sold 800 tickets out of 3,000

And they've had a lot of threads whingeing that their allocation wasn't big enough. They really are deluded about the size of their club.

Didn't they ask for 4000 for their biggest game of last season (play-off semi) ?,
moaned like hell when they were given 2000, saying it's not nearly enough,
and sold less than 1000

I think they took 1,288 to the play-off semi.

Which I think is actually a far more lamentable turnout than 800 for a mid-day televised run of the mill League game.

How many will Saints bring to Goodison this year? Probably around the 800 mark? Even for your biggest game in years a couple of years ago and with reduced prices Saints only brought 1200 and sent the Upper Bullens back.

It’s in the third tier, early Saturday lunch time kick off and it’s on the telly. Saints would be lucky to take 500 in the same circumstances.

Funnily enough, 5 or 6 years ago we did play Sunderland away with a lunchtime kick-off, in the middle of winter, twice a few weeks apart. In Jan for a league fixture and again in Feb in the FA Cup, both times kindly selected for TV and 12.45 starts. Both time we had around a thousand up there.

Even funnier, in 1984 we played Everton at the Dell the week following the cup semi-final and there were as many Saints fans in the little visitors section as there were scousers.

Are you talking about the game at the end of the season before last, when Hoedt scored a 96th minute own goal?

Absolutely talking out of your arse if so.

We had way more than 1,200 fans at that game.

You handed the upper bullens tickets back in for Everton to sell, so it would be around 1200 fans in the lower bullens/paddock.

Great to be able to see our former players playing for the European champions and super cup Winners, experience first hand that great scouse passion, get some photos at the shankley gates and experience that special, unique atmosphere that only Anfield has. Why wouldn’t you move heaven and earth to be at that one?

What a laughable thread. Pompey played Sunderland 5 times last year. That can become a bit stale, and the game is on at 12.30pm

Remember, your club only took 89 to Boro. Now that is side-splitting stuff.

Not as side splitting as 2,700 for a home game v Blackburn.

It certainly is. I long for the day of supporting a one club city like Pompey, Sunderland etc. They have it made, all pushing in the same direction.

If only you could have won the cup in 2009 to keep your club on the big club trail. It is a shame all the glory hunters have selected the team in red. The European ban has a lot to answer for.

Rubbish regards top tier

Although we didn’t sell all our allocation we had both tiers, and I sat in top tier

Maybe I’m wrong about the top tier for that game (it has been known) but you definitely didn’t have the top tier for a recent game at Goodison, first game of last season?

For that game we sold out the Lower Bullens and Paddock which is approximately 2,000 fans, I sat in the upper Bullens and although it wasn't full it probably had about 800 or so up there in it with about 300 or so spare.

For some reason we have never taken many to Goodison we have always taken far more to Anfield, United and City, I dont know why

The away section at Everton (lower tier) has to be the worst away section in the league for the amount of blocked views. Plus in my 5 visits I've seen 5 defeats, with an aggregate score of something like 15-3 (and I didn't see the 8-0, 7-1 or 6-1 games that seem to crop up about every 10 years!!) Out record there is probably the worst of any ground we regularly visit!!
Ironically Anfield is p!ss poor as well in several sections.
