Probably, as harsh as it sounds because its more "edgey" and cool to go to football than rugby these days.

Correct, but how many of them are loyal and true supporters of a club and not just bandwagon jumpers when they get into a higher division and then disappear when relegated back into a lower division.

A example has been in our own town with the Latic's and more recently at Huddersfield and Hull.

And what about the many who after paying for a expensive ticket, leave in droves if their team is losing by more than one goal.

We may not have as many supporters in the 21-25 group, but what we do have is a more loyal and true support than in football.

If we want to attract younger supporters a good place to start would be to stop playing that awful ‘Chelsea Dagger’ when we score.

Absolute cringe.

Time has moved on, it was awful at the time and still is.

Bring in Clint Boon to overall the music.

If you mean around our part of the world, its because the local services have been run by Northern (Arriva) who from tomorrow will no longer have the franchise as it has been taken off them by the Rail Regulator for running trains late or not at all.

We live in hope that things will improve under the new operator.

Nah, have Gareth Brooks, miles better. Heard him a few times at City before European matches aswell as when he used to be on Xfm Manchester.

Also, they need a compare. City have Mike McClean who was on Nickelodeon back in the early 90s and he’s really funny.

Now some idiot will point out that ‘we are not football’ and ‘we don’t have city’s money’. All you need to do is find some local comedian who’s been around he block ideally a Wigan fan and get them to take the mic before games to keep people entertained with whatever’s competitions they want to do before a game and at half time.
