Having seen a real interest in town recently support wise and having taken approx 16k recently to Wembley for a non league cup game, would it be likely to break the 20k barrier for a game of real importance if we get there or is that being optimistic ?

No vote from me.

I prefer to get through the semi-final before I even think about Wembley.

Went for 12.5k as everyone loses interest when a week before the fcuking tinpot tee wats can't decide the actual date / venue / kick off time.

If we get to Wembley it will be our biggest game there,

More important than when we won the Auto Glass or play offs in 98,

This one will get us back into the football league,

There can not be anything more important than that,

Even so I can not see us taking 20,000+

18,000- 19000 IMO

I think we'd get a lot more than we had in the FA Trophy because it means so much more. It's a long time since we've been to Wembley for a game of any real signifcance so for a lot of people it would be their first experience..I'd hope for at least 20K.

Can't see it breaching 12k. Feel good factor of the post-FGR phase has well and truly withered. 3 disappointing finals. Shite venue for a small final. Shite value for money. Can't see many people bothering. It's a relatively local fixture for me but I'd only go out of a sense of duty* so I can't see many glory hunters going.

* if it was somewhere sensible like Villa Park I'd be more enthusiastic.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Agree with les, cannot even contemplate wembley until we get there, and that is no certainty is it. Fans are only torturing themselves just now.

Not thinking about it but I can't see it being more than 20k. Nothing to do with people having lost interest wtc but more to do with cost implications and whilst we all know it would be hugely important many others wouldn't...
