Based on attendances from Ayr and ICT games. Why did they not turn  today?

Same as every season in recent history that we always get one of our biggest home crowds of the season for the league opener.

Thought just short of 5000 Dees was a great turn out today and way up on a lot of the home turnouts we were getting in the top flight last season. 

Both home games have shown that we still have 5000 home supporters for bog standard league games if there's optimism. 

Last season we had just over 4000 for some category A games and a few 4500 turnouts for others.

Aye but why and where are the missing 500?

Derbies aside, first home league game and first away league game, generally speaking, attract one of the biggest home and away supports of the league season respectively for us.

Have seen us take 1700 up to Dingwall for a league opener in this league.

Just the way it is and won't change unless we win week in week out and entice less regular attendees back.

Last time I seen that happen was Bonetti's first season.

Because money's tight. Because football's not all that important really. Already spent money on the Ayr, Aberdeen and United game. A lot of folk work weekends so maybe they took the opener off?

Loads of reasons. And, not meaning to sound over critical, more huff and puff like today and the crowd's will dwindle further.

Lets get real. Its not that many seasons ago we were getting 2500 - 3000 for championship games 

Nah,we never went that low.Always usually about the 3500-4000 mark home crowd average when we were in the championship /1st division

We dropped to around 2,000 during the Angus Cook era in the early 90s and again in 2005/2006 when Kerno was taking us to new lows on the park.

2005/2006 average attendance was 3800,still about 3300 home average in that probably
