luton sold 32k to put it in perspective
Oh dont HD will be unstoppable now
. Ok Luton is a very short , very easy journey to Wembley, but they are very much a smaller club than Sheffield Utd, and for the benefit of our overseas supporters it must be said that a very very very large percentage of the town is Islamic and you dont see many of them at games. So if luton can muster up 32,000 i'm amazed Sheff utd managed so few.
that was a special case. Luton had just been doomed to non-league football by the FA and the football league. They were finalists for the Johnstone Paint Trophy and wanted to use the occasion to stick their thumb in the eye of those two "august bodies." Their opponents returned a portion of their allocation to boost Luton's share.
Had Luton NOT been screwed and had Luton's fans NOT been filled with both rage and outrage, I think the club might have sent 10-15,000 on the day.
It's a poor comparison, but I take your point. I just wonder if any of the Luton supporters were told it would cost them 6k to bring in a flag.
