Games since started supporting.

Post by bonzosbeard » Tue May 14, 2019 9:38 pm

We are all familiar with club appearances for players but has anyone worked out how many games they've enjoyed over the years or had to put up with?

I will try and work out an exact figure but I started in 1978 and if we have roughly played 50 games a season I'm guessing I'm around the 2000 mark.

I'm getting a 50 average including cup games and the increase of games in the second tier.

Be interesting to know what the maximum is amongst us. 3500 perhaps? I know this is a very trivial pursuit but it's a long way to August.

BTW I meant all games not just ones attended.

I’m a bit of a geek for these things.
The 3-1 win earlier this season at home to Fulham was my 400th competitive match attended.

I have seen every home game bar 4 since 1975. Taking away games into account and those before 1975 I reckon I have seen about 1400 games.

At a rough estimate I've been to roughly 1500 games.

Most in a season was 50, in the second division late 70s or early 80s.
