Surely they'll bring 100+ after there "Is That All You Take Away" and heckling on their forum of the 100 for a midweek game that we had there ?
hilarious debate on Forest green website:

Think Rod and Joe play well together so I'd go for them as the starting line up. I must admit, I'd have taken Joe off after Colin was sent off and replaced him with a defender/midfielder ie Talbs, playing Rod as Lone striker - good job I'm not the manager then!

I suspect in the glory days we were also very bad at counting and had a lot of faulty turnstiles. with hindsight and using 1300 against grays as a yard stick we must have had well over 2,000 for every game. i can remember playing Matlock in the trophy quarter final replay and the golf road was solid with the rest of the ground full attendance given 2,500. That was when the golf road really did have a roar.
Ditto the quoted 8000 for the FA cup game at home to Orient. Moss lane was so packed that afternoon you could hardly move. I thought at the time that the real attendance must have been closer to 15,000 - bearing in mind the record attendance at ML is 15,000 for a schoolboy match. Of course my memory does wear red and white tinted glasses.

The good folk of Altrincham have always been a fickle lot. Even back in the "Glory years"  we probably only averaged about 1800 for league games - that was with a very successful team and no live footy on the box.
We always grumble about being on the doorstep of Man U - we just have to accept that. But, as has been said, the youth are the way forward. Get them in young and get them hooked -  the links with youth football in the area is the ideal way to do this.
