After all these years.....I must be confusing Sunderland with another team - used to play at Roker Park. Im sure I read decades ago even Charlie Amer described it as a "Derby".
I suppose it must have been Stockton Town?

I canít see it as such a big deal you need to start a thread on it, And there is a fixation about attendances in general. Bit schoolboyish IMO

'So what? Why is there this fixation with attendances?'

Our fans keep going on about how we have such a fantastic support.

The Derby game at home indicated otherwise.

Regardless of attendances it's been one of the worst games I've watched this season, and was at the Derby match!

Enough talk of attendance trivia

0-0 a good result for us, particularly with Wednesday down to 10

Maybe it was sold out but some clearly never turned up - or maybe they were too busy eating prawn sandwiches or whatever they have in Sheffield

Both Sheffield teams have been batting below average for a good 20 years, not surprised there little appetite for football.

I thought it was the 4th biggest city?

EP - our support would go head to head with any club in the country per head of population, Sunderland wouldnít come anywhere near us.

Only Burnley might give us a game.

Definately sold out. Tried to get a ticket on Wednesday.

Think most of the empty seats were for safety reasons. I noticed the first few rows in Sheff Utd section above Wednesday were empty.

Sheffield FC v Hallam is the proper Sheffield derby anyway [;)]
