I have been to all eight previous games at Wembley, and I think this will be our third highest following.This may well be our lowest migration down to PP South (correct me if I’m wrong)
RLC, thanks for the Wembley attendance figures. They get bigger for the most important games but a few less following recent visits.I have read a lot of comments from Rovers fans suggesting this game is a 'free hit' and they would not be devastated if we lose.
Personally, I think completely the opposite. I was not too disappointed when we lost in 2017 as I knew we would be challenging again the following season. However, if we lose on Saturday we don't know how long it will be before we are challenging for a place in League One again. Perhaps years, as there are a number of League Two clubs of similar size to us that have been marooned in mid table for a long time.
Will we have the same momentum next season ? Will Micky be here in years to come ? Will several of the better players ? I know we have stable ownership, but that is no guarantee of success on the pitch as we saw under Brabin and his predecessor.
Things change very quickly in football and we need to grasp this opportunity.
