Latics, best supported away team in League 1, if you need evidence just look today at Anfield.

Lets get behind the lads, sing our hearts out, call the referee a barsteward, tell Suarez how big his teeth are and cheer JCH every time he turns their centre backs and go crazy when we score (first, hopefully!) and get voted best away supporters of the season, as we were last year by Everton fans!

We will drop below Carlisle after we've played our games in hand.....very depressing, 17 or so seasons in the same division

doesn't help. A promotion or dare I say a relegation could improve it long term.


Colchester's new stadium made a lot of difference didn't it and the impetus of a new ground for Notts County a few years ago has

long gone.


Success on the field is the only way forward....lets hope that any profits from the new stand are ploughed back into the club and we can slowly improve, however, looking at those crowd figures for the division, the general trend is pretty alarming to say the

The only side out of the top 7, we've played at home in the league are Bradford. As 3 of those are local clubs to us, I can see them pushing our average significantly higher.


Let's wait til the end of the season before saying we are the 19th best supported side in this League, although that will be difficult as I think we will end up about 12th/13th.
