Official attendance was 21,000, I'd say 15/16,000 tops.

Your estimate?

Yes it does matter, it shows how the strachan days are coming back and Gibbo needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat for next season.

Attendances were 11,000 under Mogga at his lowest ebb. Presumably it was 'more like 8-9,000' actually there then, meaning we're a long way off that just now.

Not that I think it really matters.

East stand looked empty and I noticed the lads who usually sit in front of me haven't been to the last two home games. I reckon 18k there tops last night.

I'd agree parmoboy, 18k tops last night, probably a good few less.
It does matter atypical. It matters a lot.
Thousands of people who have bought a ticket to the match choose not to go.
Thousands of fans without tickets were not tempted to go along and buy one.
That's a lot of people who are becoming disconnected to their club.

"That's a lot of people who are becoming disconnected to their club."

That sentence would have been applicable at virtually any given time this cenutury (and plenty of the last) regarding Boro, save for the spell between 2004-2006 and two seasons under Karanka.

As a club, we're going through a mediocre spell; its been better, its been worse, but we at least have something to play for.

It matters because it shows how dispondant fans are. Not on here kicking and screaming but just quietly turning away.

I know there's a lot of superfans on here that like to tell you about their season ticket holding days for x amount of years but there are just as many long standing fans who are feeling lost.

The football is only the catalyst for this feeling too. After some years of coming together after the Strachan era it feels as though there's a disconnect between the club and the fans.

Those that went along last night deserve some respect for sticking with it but I can't for a second blame those that can't be @rsed

'..becoming disconnected to their club.'

We used to simply use the word 'fickle'. Far less of a mouthful.

"Attendances were 11,000 under Mogga" not when we were sitting 5th in the table or after splashing millions in the transfer market.

No but that's probably why they're 10,000 (around 80%) higher now then.

You see Barnsy, it's not the same at all, not even close.
For one so particular about spelling, grammar and punctuation, I'm surprised at you.

There was a lot of regular ST holders near me in the north that weren't there last night.

I really can't see it, but if Gibson was to make a change then after the Villa game we have a two week break before the run in.

'.....it's not the same at all, not even close.'

But that is only your opinion.

When things became tough a couple of seasons ago people referred to 'the matchday experience'.

We now have regular references to fans becoming 'disconnected to their club'.

It's becoming a cliche that shows a lack of original thought.

When results go against the team, some people tend to stay away, it's quite straightforward really.

I s good outside the turnstile looking for my season card in my wallet. The club steward helpfully told me to go home and watch Liverpool instead- that is where he would rather be.
I eventually found my season card and watched an exciting match.
I have noticed our crowds have been down when competing with Champions League and not just this season.

Will this disconnect between fans and club mean that you'll have to reconsider your, 'It will turn messy in the stands' prediction?

Or not?

Mcclaren said on a piece on Sky Sports that in his 5 years he always had problems with the crowd.

Boro fans are awful at times. I really don't get the demand from some of them. People who don't even go to games complain on style or substance etc.

Come crawling back. You're a grade one idiot. Im a season ticket holder and pledged my money to the club a year in advance. I'm far from a superfan but go to a fair few games. Im not sure if I'd go back to wembley but if I decide to why shouldnt I?
