    Mutty’s No.3 reeks of delusions of grandeur!

    To be fair to him, we had that ourselves to a certain degree when we were in League One because of our Premier League history and being recent FA Cup winners.
    We managed the pressure okay, it remains to be seen whether Sunderland can cope.

    Justified or not, it is a fact that all bar two of our opponents have recorded their highest home attendance when Sunderland are in town. I’ll have a wild guess that Oxford will beat their highest crowd thus far come Saturday.

    Was that how you found it in 2015/16 and 2017/18 – sold out awaydays and packed grounds?

    The facts are-
    1. Sunderland are a league 1 club.
    2. Have just paid 4 million on a proven league 1 striker.
    3. Attendances are irrelevant to how the team performs.

    2. They could have paid far, far less for a proven league one striker
    3. So how do Sunderland’s crowd compare to when they were playing well and holding their own in the EPL?

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    So they should Mutty. Comparing Sunderland with Wigan in that way is just daft considering the size of Sunderland and the support that comes from all over County Durham. A nearer comparison would be a crowd of 30,000 at the SOL being the equivelent of 5,000 at Wigan.
    When you have such a massive drawing area with no competition for support and other fans spread all around the country it isnt any big deal and not exactly a massive thing to be filling Fleetwood and Burtons grounds. Saying that Its a great club and will be a fantastic experience for Will Grigg when 30,000 Makem and Takems are singing out his name. Latics should have stuck out for more money is my only gripe.

    Comparing Sunderland with Wigan

    I didn’t compare them Donny – Horc did. See below.

    Tell me something mutt lad in the history of professional football when has attendances ever won a game. How come with your massive away following that Luton are walking your league . Our much smaller league one attendances brought us two titles, funny that.

    They don’t.

    What does make it harder is when every club you face plays like its their cup final, then comes crashing back to earth the following week. See my post further up, when I pointed out that only 4 of the 23 sides we faced before Christmas managed to win their next game, and one of those was Charlton who we faced on day one.

    The attendances are a side-effect of Sunderland being in town, where massive away followings and bigger home followings further increase the “cup final” atmosphere. My lot wont be inspired by playing in front of 8,000 at Walsall or Scunthorpe, but Walsall and Scunthorpe will be inspired because its twice their normal crowd. Think how Peterborough celebrated when they beat Wigan 3-2 last season and multiply it by 10, and you may just have an idea of how everyone views Sunderland in Div 3.

    Luton have benefitted from having no expectation, an early exit from the Checkatrade cup, and a lack of injuries. They’ve also played three more games. Now they have the pressure of being there to be knocked off, we’ll see how they handle it.

    Well done, you have just summed up in one sentence why most teams raise their game and most fans hate Sunderland and other big time charlies like you.

    There was 6099 in attendance for Latics away trip to Peterborough.
    They must have had one hell of a re development to London Road over he close season to get 60,990 in for the visit of you egotistic w*****s.

    I don’t know what it is with you, you crave attention and want to be accepted on our site, then you go and shoot yourself in the foot with empty headed statements like that.
    No matter what you Sunderland fans think, you are not Manchester United, or even Newcastle Utd for that matter, you are the lowest ranked team in the North East since the demise of Darlington.

    PS Are you going to sing a long to the Gallowgate anthem when Will Grigg gets on the scoresheet?

    Huge away followings obviously again all in proportion to any other club including Latics. One City with many satellite towns and villages and many fans from those areas whove moved away plus no competition for support.
    In proportion to the drawing area and shear numbers compared to most clubs the Sunderland travelling support is no different. Maybe even poor.
    5000 Sunderland fans travelling (when theyre winning) is roughly similar to 150 Accrington fans or 500 Wigan fans or 900 knob enders. It is no big deal.

    Never really understood what makes Sunderland a big club. Is it the big stadium that is usually half empty? Is it the fact that they get about 10% of their population watching them? It certainly isn’t their honours list is it?

    I love the way you twist things to suit your personal agenda. 6000 fans can clap politely to celebrate, sing loudly and jump up and down to celebrate a bit more, or go wild and invade the pitch to celebrate even more – it doesn’t take more fans for those 6000 original fans to celebrate more.

    I’ll leave the petty name-calling for those who have lost the debate.
