To be fair the A470 was shut at Coryton and abercynon on way home, that must have put a few off. I was there as I didn’t know but anyone who was aware must have thought twice, 1 diversion ok but 2 is off putting, that said it was poor attendance tonight

Every excuse under the sun. What a load of Bollocks. I have been slated on this site for calling these missing fans Plastics, well they are Plastics. If we were playing in the FA CUP FINAL at Wembley at midnight on a rainy Tuesday the 16K Plastic Bast***s would be clambering for tickets, saying they have never missed a game and have supported City all of their lives. Forget the Plastics and cheers to the 16K that turn up regularly. REAL SUPPORTERS. :banghead:

We could probably all learn a lesson off my grandson, I took him to the Mansfield FA Cup game and he was amazed to be watching real football live and listening to people singing and discussing who was in the team or who was on the bench, and the walk up to the stadium on a bitterly cold day. I also took him to the Man City game and he was exactly the same, he had even learned the songs.....No mention of how many people attended he was just interested in the football and watching it and now is a fanatic of CCFC...Job done no mention of crowds apart from the poison he hears around him now from SUPER FANS who clearly believe they are the be all and end all of Cardiff City. Sometimes we have poor crowds, so what get over it it is what it is. :bluescarf: :ayatollah: :bluebird:

I was'nt there last night but do not need an excuse not to go. I am there more often than not, but I don't consider myself above the so called plastics. Plenty of genuine fans have a life that does not revolve entirely around football, and I expect many will put family before football. If we get a big crowd all well and good, if we don't I am sure those who are there can live with it. Complaining about our gates is pointless, we are what we are, and we will never regularly compete with the likes of Newcastle or Aston Villa or Leeds when it comes to support.

Me and the boy went to most of the home fixtures over Christmas and new year.

Didn't bother even trying for tickets to Man City.

Last night he had football training and its a school night.

Some of us with younger kids (mine 6 & 10) have to balance keeping the wives/partners happy with doing family stuff and getting the kids doing various clubs/events/homework with work and boring life stuff.

Yes, it would be nice to see the stadium full to bursting every game.

Financially, myself included its not feasible to take the boy and now the girl as well to each and every match. Somethings are more important than football, like keeping a roof over our heads and keeping the missus from pecking our heads.

I've got a tidy missus who doesn't mind me taking the kids to football, but evening matches during school time and even out of school time can be an argumentative struggle as the kids are a nightmare the next few days as their routine gets thrown out of kilter and it shows. I tend to go for the easy life and steer clear of evening matches with the kids as a rule.

Saturdays are a bit hit and miss lately as the lad's football team have been having matches all over timewise and it can be difficult to get him home, washed/changed and get down to the stadium for matches, couple that with the missus/girl child wanting to do family stuff or having their commitments then it adds up to a not ideal football supporting life.

That said, we attend when we can, often at pretty short notice or listen on radio or watch on tv/stream.

This plastic bollocks has to stop as it alienates far more than it encourages. As I've shown above people do have lives outside of watching their team.

I'm guessing you didn't attend ninian park much ?
it wasn't until the late 90s I believe that crowds started picking up - after THAT andy Campbell goal.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong though. :bluebird:
