Ground's too big, atmosphere no good.

Have they tried building a 60,000-seater?

It's already a 49,000-seater, so they're not far off.

Funny. Are greedy clubs now regretting building monster stadiums?

I'm okay with including tickets sold in official attendance figures, but counting give-aways in which people don't turn up seems daft.

Including tickets sold in the official numbers is still a slippery slope. If ticket issuer Mygiantstadium Inc sells a full block of 6,000 tickets for a fiver to the absolutely-independent-I-swear-your-honour Shiftticketsofmygiantstadium.com then legally they've been sold.

Surely the easiest thing, and the thing we all want to know the answer to, is how many people were actually at the match? Maybe that isn't so easy to figure out in some cases as the students in Charlie's maths class outing to BTC found out. But most of the time I'd like to think that counting turnstile clicks or scanning barcodes would give a well-defined simple answer.

In Italy they list attendances as two numbers, one for abbonati and one for paganti. I always used to wonder why they couldn't just add those two together to get the total, but now that I think about it, abbonati means season-ticket holders, paganti means people who paid (for a single ticket) and neither of those numbers needs to have anything to do with how many people actually showed up (especially if it's raining).
