They got just under 2,000 on Saturday (which is poor considering the start they’ve made) so can’t see 500 of them travelling midweek, maybe 200?
I too think it’ll be a close game with us edging it. I do think we should have a couple of big guns as subs in case they’re needed.

4-0 us. Reckon the gulf in class, even with our reserve team, will be apparent
7600attendance. Quite a few neutrals turn up to see what the ground is like.
460 FG fans, including lots from Gloucestershire area who live in London and who have a new-found passing interest in the club

1-0 Forss. No doubt we will make 10/11 changes, still fielding a team more than capable of winning, but I expect a slighty disjointed performance due to so many changes at once and early season rustiness of our fringe players.

Agree with BeesBloke! I think a 3-0/4-0 is unlikely given the expected changes to the team. Just hope our fringe players give a good account of themselves! Want Peart Harris and Wissa to shine! And of course: NO INJURIES

They didn't even draw the biggest crowd in Gloucestershire on Saturday (for football, that is):

Gloucester City had over 2k for their match versus York City (though it was a special occasion, christening their new/old ground etc):
Gloucester City turn on the style in homecoming show

They’re currently based in a big village and with large urban areas like Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham near by it’s always going to be a struggle for them crowds wise. Be interesting to see how much their crowds rise once they move into their new stadium which is a lot closer to Gloucester.

Yes hope to get to Gloucesters new ground very soon think they will be favourites for promotion this season

Is it certain that crowds will rise? (Unsure).

Tbh, that part of the world is as much Rugby Union territory as Football (Gloucester, Bath, Bristol), whilst also being reasonably well-served for pro football clubs nearby (Cheltenham Town, Gloucester City and the two Bristols.)

I don't know how anyone can predict this when we have little idea of the lineups, hopefully a win and some promising performances.

Read on their forum they only had an allocation of 600......
Yep, the post I read also said that they were ‘very close to selling out the tickets we received’. If, as has also been posted, we’ve only 100 or so tickets left then there should be a bumper crowd, even with the East Stand being closed

I predict a lot of empty seats and then a fallout on Wednesday when purchasers realise you actually need to attend for TAPS to be added to your account :cool:

Wow that has surprised me, so likely they’ll sell out their 600 allocation. Seems odd we didn’t offer them more or allow tickets to be bought on the night (past 6pm though, what’s that about!).

Danger of coming across as patronising / complacent / arrogant when it comes to this one. Looking at their forum, they've got a soft spot for us because of Ethan and they've praised the club as classy for playing him and making him captain today. Seemed a nice bunch.

6-0 Bees

Didn't our B team beat them last season? Seriously we should win this fairly comfortably. So 3-0 to the Bees.
