Thanks for your post. Very enlightening. What you fail to see is that you cannot possible compare the two clubs, Us Boro fans would have to acknowledge that we don't have the football heritage that Luton does. You cannot ignore that. Luton, but for their Conference blip, have for many years been an established league club with a large (ish) core support, well, compared to Boro anyway. That is why, even when you slipped into non-league, you still got regular crowds of 5 or 6 thousand. And when you hit the Championship, as you may well do this season, you will no doubt get back to crowds of 8,9 or 10k, especially if you have a new ground built. Now, take us. We've only been a league club since 2011, and as a club only reformed in 1980. There is little football heritage in the town beyond the old amateur days of Stevenage Town and Athletic. That is why, despite an increasing population, we will ever grow much bigger than we currently are. In fact, our crowds have been in decline for a fair while. Put that down to cost, geographical location with many in the town supporting London clubs, or just apathy. Probably a few reasons... So given our supporter base is smaller than yours isnt it only to be expected that we have a smaller away following? Then when you factor in a 400 mile round trip in bitter weather then a very small away contingent would be expected. It doesnt matter if we took 45 or 450 - we still won and came back with three points. So good luck with the rest of your season - but don't belittle us. It makes you look a right cockwomble
