    I just heard that there was an A-League game yesterday that only got 1,600 people through the gates. Gold Coast V Melb Heart.
    That is pretty piss poor. It lead me to start thinking about the worst ever crowd at Brookie for a Manly or even a Nthn beagles game.

    I can't think of a crowd figure less than 4000 even in hurricane conditions. I could be wrong but what do you all reckon is the lowest crowd figure Manly have had at home?

    Played the Cowboys on a rainy Sat arvo one year and got around 2000 people. Cant remeber the year or exact figure but I was there and it was piss poor.

    The following link has various stats on Brookie crowds -

    http://stats.rleague.com/rl/crowds/brookvale_vn.html#hi

    The worst ever was 1785 (Manly v Canterbury 19-Jul-1964), quite a few lowish numbers in the 50s and 60s.

    The lowest in the last 20 years is 2506 (Manly v Gold Coast 11-May-1997).

    The A league gets 1600 fans through the gate, and Australia bid for the world cup.  Idiots.

    Disagree.  A League crowd numbers meant zilch when it came to the vote.  A world cup in this country would have been huge and all sports would have benefited from it in the long run.

    DSM5, classic. Thumbs up for that. The A League is a waste of time. Soccer will forever be political and divided.

    That Gold Coast game was during the Super League war on a wet arvo and the commentators claimed that there was barely a few hundred there. At one point they counted the crowd. Inflated crowd figures were all the go that year and the truth was the first casualty. I was at Cliffy's (supposed) last game against the Cowboys and if there was a thousand there that day I would be surprised, no matter what the figures said.

    Yeah and if I want to go to see a game of divers, I'd rather go see a West Tigers match instead.

    Australia didn't get the world cup because of the media snub in this country for soccer.

    Crap - we didn't get the World Cup because FIFA is basically beholden to more dollars from whoever will give it and is about as Democratic as Zimbabwe!!!
