Which is weird, as they were selling out Maine Road in the 2nd division. They have a huge fan base, so what has changed?
Something i genuinely struggle to wrap my head around. I always just assumed the people talking about "selling souls" were chatting nonsense.

Overall though, outside of London, the only teams with bigger av attendances are either the one club in the city or who benefit from very sizeable non local attendees.
