That's true but how can we lose 5 thousand fans in a few years after 1 bad season. Last time we went we had to order online so I don't get the problem. Imo it's pretty poor show from our fans if we only take 15 thousand.

I understand that but it was a expensive day out 4 years ago. Yes there's been a increase in price but that's inflation sadley.

I always thought it would be harder to shift tickets this time.

Last time we still had the buzz of the new stadium and the prospect of back to back promotions.
For some people it's probably a once in a lifetime thing and that box has already been ticked.

I'm disappointed that the event has not been marketed better. Although the commercial side of the club has been transformed under TS we could do much more to get the town involved and make tickets easier to buy. Perhaps the fact that they only get 25% of net sales is the reason for the apparent lack of effort.

I thought 17,000. That's looking optimistic now.

Tbh I'm not as excited about this time around as I were in 2014. Not sure why as the goal is the same..
Maybe it was the Evans rollercoaster effect. I guess if the rollercoaster goes around enough times even the die hard will eventually want to get off

This is our third trip in 8 years to the new Wembley so perhaps the novelty of play offs and the venue have worn off
Also the transport and tickets ain't cheap.

Wots the point in supporting a team like Rotherham or Shrewsbury if you don't get excited or find a way to go to your nation stadium and hopefully see them achieve the impossible ( well I never thought it was possible to get in the championship 3 times in that many years). For teams like us these are the occasions we should all get to as they may not come round every few years soon.

It makes you wonder whether it is the right place to be holding a final of this size there. Ok they don't know who will be there at the end of the season so that's the justification.

Would a home and return legged final be better?

Could they not chose a location between the two teams like they used to for the semi finals of the FA Cup.

Let us face it the only reason it is held at Wembley is to pay for it.

Who does pay for the match to be staged there? Who pays for the stewards, the ground staff and the policing? What is the profit that a club can hope for at a stadium of that size when it is less than a third full?

Don't get me wrong I have loved all three visits and would be there under other circumstances but is it finacially viable when a shorter trip to Manchester would suit both clubs in either stadium. That would be a sell out I think.

It used to be special getting to wembley. Not any more.. if a little team like Rotherham can do it 3 times in the last 8 years and Shrewsbury even more times then it takes the shine off it..
I can see why wembley is attractive for players as most of our squad have not played there before though it does seem a bit of a old-fashioned way in modern times.

Never thought we were a massive club just wondered how we have lost 5 thousand fans, when we are probably averanging around the same gates at home as last time we were in l1. I know the size we are but I'd like to think we could tale 20 thousand to Wembley. As I've said for clubs our size we are not there very often.

Big improvement from the Don Valley days and the last years at Millmoor but we don't have that many fans.

We only get allocated 10,000 on home games usually then thereís segregation so anything over 11,000 to me is a sell out. No we wouldnít get that kind of numbers in league 1 but championship we got that almost every home game.

I can only think people didn't think we would be anywhere near the play offs and booked holidays. The ticket situation doesn't help as well . Searching excuses i no but it is a low following. I would always back us to take 18/20k maybe there is a surge tomorrow . Still cannot understand why the club can not come up with a deal to sell tickets here on our online portal or at the ticket office.

Be lucky if there's 30,000 there on Sunday. Shrewsbury don't really have any big local clubs around them who they can borrow fans off for the day. We do, but it looks like the Rotherham Blades and Owls fans who allegedly normally bulk up our Wembley support, aren't that fussed this time.
It'll feel like we're back at Don Valley again

While I would take international friendlies and the Cup semis around the country I think the Play off final should stay at Wembley.

We are fortunate enough to have got there for the 3rd time in 8 years but other than that we would never have been to the new stadium.

The only other chance of getting there would be the final of the EFL Trophy and our last sniff of that was 22 years ago. A whole generation would never have seen Rotherham play at Wembley if they moved them to Villa Park or Manchester.

Was going to post the exact same thing. I think people are cautious of going back in the Championship too after the shambolic performance last season. Going to Wembley on the back of a promotion vs on the back of a relegation will put some people off, theres not as much of a buzz.

It is payday on Friday though maybe we'll see a last minute surge then? I know a few people who are waiting til payday to get the ticket. Strangely enough I also know a fair amount of people that are on holiday too, it wasn't looking like we were going to finish in the play-offs nevermind get to Wembley just before Christmas so a fair few people have booked a holiday when they otherwise might have held off if we were up there then

According to my made up stats lol

Most of our fan base is ether pensioners or young people who became a fan after new stadium was built.

My uncle who says heís a rotherham fan says the spark left for him when buckets for collection came around. I keep telling him to come to new ground since heís never been.

I think the club has had such a rough patch in past people are afraid of having their Hope smashed

But thatís just what I think issue is anyway

However it would explain quite a few things

rolymiller
24-05-2018, 11:12 AM
A lot of good points there silly. I think we still need to build our fan base a couple of seasons in the Championship aint enough to do that. If we can get up and try to stick there for a few years like Barnsley did we will have a chance to build the fan base. I remember when Barnsley had no better gates than us in the 60s and 70s. We also have the dee dars still nicking our support and while they are still doing relatively well it doesn't help our support. But 14 or 15000 millers at Wembley will do and at least we will not be outnumbered by Shrews fans like we would have been if we had played Charlton, portsmouth or Plymouth. When TS has to increase the capacity of NYS we will know that our fan base is building but i think that will mean we will have to stay in the champ for a good number of years in order to achieve that.

Thatís Probably the case mate but itís not just staying in championship thatís going to increase fan base we have to be better than Sheffield teams and that will take some doing to finish higher than them.

Reason I say we will have to finish higher is simple look at Cardiff and Swansea for example 2 welsh teams yet the crowd fluctuates depending on whoís doing better. Itís a known fact that kids will tend to pick the best club in area growing up and carry it into adulthood.

Itís not impossible to do we just have to aim high but in realistic terms 10th in championship will increase fan base dramatically

When I was at school who we supported changed like this Man U Leeds Sheffield W (me however back then only watched World Cup)

But from logic of the guys Iíd imagine it be like this

Man U are triple winners best team ya da ya da but canít ever get ticket never mind get there on my bike
Leeds are a prem team who are good but hold on Leeds is still far away
Shef w are in prem too hmm my dad says my uncle will take me

As far as I know thereís only 2 ways to make a fan
First is brainwashing young uns take kids to games every week until they canít see any club but rotherham as theirs.
Second get people excited about the club unfortunately the only way people get exited about a club is when something was worth bragging about

You do get odd one with reasons like itís local or I like the smaller crowd but not often.

Anyway thatís just me babbling

It's not the marginal fan's duty to buy a ticket. If the club want to maximise sales they have to cater to all.

Come on, they are the second best team in Sheffield.

Way better than Sheffield FC and Hallam FC.

I was enjoying that and then I couldn't stop laughing when I read this paragraph XD

At least we're not playing Charlton, Plymouth or Portsmouth.
They would have filled 3 tiers and be encroaching past the half way line

Would much sooner have played one the above sides purely for the fact it would have made for a much better atmosphere. One of the reasons I almost didn't buy a ticket was because I didn't fancy sitting in big stadium in a below 30 thousand crowd and i'm sure plenty more will have felt the same but not bought a ticket

Really?
Haven't you been listening to PW when he's said a large vociferous crowd makes a huge difference.
It would be like giving the opposition a 1 or 2 goal advantage

Has Warney actually said that its like giving the opposition a 1 or 2 goal advantage ?????? Cos if he has it's a bit of a defeatist message for next season if we do go up

So it’s not about football on the pitch, it’s about the atmosphere in the stands?

Astonishing

Btw I’ve got my balloons and wig

The novelty of Wembley is wearing off. This game would have been just as interesting at Pride Park, fora fraction of the cost.

It's not all about the old gits. To the youngsters a day out at Wembley will be a magical experience. I wish I'd had the chance to see us there as a kid.

Once Wembley is sold we won't have to worry about it, they will be able to find more lucrative fixtures than the playoffs. Maybe just keep the championship but the rest of the playoffs and non league cups will find new homes. This would be better for the fans if they code a venue half way between, but logistically could that be done if they only have a weeks notice?

Yep, The Jag man will see to it that clubs like ours will hardly ever get the chance to play at Wembley again. Go and watch The Millers at our National Stadium.... 'cos just as The Stones were singing tonight down the road at the London Stadium ...This Could Be The Last Time.

This is a good point.
It might be the last time a club of our stature gets to play at Wembley.
