There's no point looking back too far into history as it becomes meaningless in the modern era but take a look at our attendances over the last ten years or so, they have bobbled along between 27-24k (the lower attendances are as much to do with losing derby games as it is anything else imo) that's what we are as a club. Unless we attract new fans to the club that isn't going to change.

Before Pulis rocked up, I think I'm right in saying that our average attendance in the Prem has been over 95% of ground capacity. Bit difficult to increase attendances when the capacity keeps getting cut.

Yes, I agree. Capacity should have been lifted to 30/32k.

However, that website shows us with just 1 season in the third tier.

Yes, we've never had particularly big crowds.

And that shows just how popular the FA Cup used to be.

So you think if we added 10k if seats to the ground we would sell what another 5k of tickets on average per game? Even if our average league gates for many, many years suggests otherwise?

Hawthorns capacity = 26,688

Average home attendance since 1947 = 22,017

Average low attendance since 1947 (32 seasons below 22,017) = 15,905

Average high attendance since 1947 (39 seasons above 22,017) = 27,032

20% of our seasons since 1947 have had a higher average attendance than the Hawthorns current capacity; 7% 26,689 - 29,999;  10% 30,000 - 34,999; 3% 35,000 - 38,910

i dont think there can be any argument that in the last 15 years if we had had a bigger ground we would have had a higher average attendance.
