2 Premiership teams in Merseyside
5 in London

It still figures
I understand that and I presume that Tranmere is a well supported team but in London you have the likes of Oxford, Wimbledon, Charlton, Luton, QPR etc who will command decent gates as well given their times in top flight football.

Do you think we will have a waiting list for season tickets for next season or will we be trying to flog half season tickets ?

Yes there will still be a waiting list. What I'm saying is a new ground will attract more fans, why build a 50k stadium then have to spend more money expanding it in a few years. West Ham hardly ever filled Upton Park and yet ended up with 50k season tickets sold for the new stadium, we have a larger fan base than them so I don't see any reason why we won't do the same.

Just a few years ago we couldn't fill GP so saying that the club would automatically fill a 60k stadium for the next 100 years is quite a bold statement.

Highest average attendance in the history of our club was 51,000 in 1962/63
But we did win the league that year  :)

Would be desperately disappointed if the capacity was less than 55'000, with the ability to expand it to sixty, if we prove we can sell out that. Historically a new stadium for a big premier league club means more fans, higher attendances.

Manchester, Wigan, Burnley, Blackburn all a hell of a lot closer to Liverpool than Oxford is to London so you might as well include them.

Not sure what you're trying to prove there @Ramjam ,  Oxford's not part of London, neither is it particularly close.

Would've been better comparing Tranmere to the likes of Millwall, QPR, Brentford, Leyton Orient, Barnet etc.... Oxford and Luton bit of random shouts since they aren't in/near London particularly

Anyway

Rather 60k and a few empty seats than 50k

I think itís close enough to call it a London based club but if you donít fair enough I can see that to. But my point is that within the London greater area there is a hell of a lot of football teams to go around the support base of the game

32k season tickets sold

10k waiting list supposedley

Assuming you have 42k season tickets for the new ground.

Say 5k for the away fans?

That leaves 13k on general sale.

It won't be easy to do 60k but a couple of thousand empty seats won't be an issue if we don't.

I think if Sam is at the helm next season you could reduce the season tickets by 5.000, saying that he wonít be here for kick off at BMD anyway

It's definitely not a London based club. As mentioned by @Escla , Manchester is closer to Liverpool than Oxford is to London.

Yes, there are more team down that way, but with all due respect to them many are small and of no concern to Spurs. Within the North West there are plenty of large PL based clubs, and much fewer people. The population argument (as well as tourists) is very valid, and in no way should be overlooked.
