It seems so, they are touted as a great example of a community club but if that were so surely they'd be slowly but surely increasing their crowd numbers.

Community must be small, those gates are more akin to northern league surely.

Either way - let's get those 3 points back we dropped on Saturday.
After Saturdays abject display it would not suprise me if the crowd was below last Tuesday's 450.
I will drag myself along , but it would be good to know what the intentions of the new board are in terms of the rest of the season.
If there is no new money then fine, but it seems that we move on to the next game in hope rather than realism.
The defence and Pinchard are O.K but the rest .......

It's difficult for us to bang a drum about our attendance given the size of Gloucester. Interesting how others see us (from the Chesterfield forum when they nicked JR) :

They've been at that level for years I think so probably this is their big chance to get into the NL and beyond (i suspect a city like Gloucester could probably support a FL team?)

In theory it could for sure but it's a massive rugby place. I imagine it's one of those places that's full of plastic Liverpool and Man United fans that could be tempted to see a club on the up.

Probably about right... Curzon Ashton are in the Greater Manchester area so they can hardly be at fault as a small club with the bigger clubs they have to compete within their area. We don't have much of an excuse in comparison. Plastic PL supporters...

Curzon have had some good FA Cup runs which no doubt will have helped and I think they have had some good managers as well. Must be hard for a club like them though to get any decent numbers through the gate given their location.

I do find it remarkable that 10 years ago this league was essentially the Manchester league with Altrincham, Stalybridge, Stockport, Hyde, Salford, Droylsden etc. and the massively inflated wages that came with that, and the one club that stayed at this level after all that was Curzon. Possibly the club with the lowest budget and attendances of them all.
The way they operate as a club is commendable, and I feel sorry for them that the local interest has just never increased.

I know I turn every thread into this banging head against the wall nonsense but considering we're such a massive rugby place how many people does everyone know at work and in their social lives that bang on about it all the time? "Did you see that try that *insert name of fat bloke with cauliflower ears here* scored?", "How about that ruck?". "My God, the kick the full length of the pitch by *insert name of current soggy biscuit Champion* was worthy of Wimbledon". You don't! Fucking perpetuated myth.

The other bit is bang on mind. Walk through town singing feed the Scousers and you'd genuinely upset people who talk like Pam Ayres.

They don't remember the games because they're usually just pissed up. A day out at the rugby is just a day out on the beer.

Pretty comfortable victory really. Curzon had two decent chances and that was pretty much it and both times we went down the other end and scored. Their crossing was awful, but ours was better and I think that made the difference. Curzon would have gone 3rd if they had won tonight, but it looked like it was us that could have gone 3rd not them.
