'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Were/When did you/have you watched most PFC games?



I thought of this article to not only illustrate the time of our peak support but also to at a high level illustrate roughly the age 'Vital' readers.

I have entered some 'commentary' about what the results might mean and what they might illustrate. The question was Were/When did you/have you watched the most PFC games?

The results were:

1930's or before 6%. If accurate a great response, assuming the individuals were around 10 when they their first in for example game 1935 that makes them now 76 years old.

1940's 8%. If accurate a great response, assuming the individuals were around 10 when they their first in for example game 1935 that makes them now 66 years old.

1950's 1%. A very low figure, not sure about the accuracy of this one things have been much worse than they were in the 1950's.

1960's 4%. Another very low figure, more 'Vital' readers watched games in the 30's and 40's than in the 60's.

1970's 11%. My personal starting date which coincided with one of debt. John Deacon sold me a square of FP, not sure which one I expect it has gone now. He did not even ask me. The days of Billy Wilson, Eoin Hand, Peter Ellis and Norman Piper.

1980's 15%. Things were starting to look up and we were winning a bit more supporters came out to watch.

1990's 15%. Again things were going well which was reflected in attendances.

2000's 34%. Premier League, FA cup, UEFA cup heady days brought out 'new supporters'.

Only on TV 6%. We have to accept that not everyone is able to watch live.

Only at Wembley 0%. Like it, usual supporters got in.

Never 0%. This does not reflect badly on those who voted this way, it's just the way it is.

I missed this one. I started in the mid 60's, probably saw most regularly in the 70's until I moved away in 76. Have lived all over since but still get to a few games a season, although more often away games these days. At least I can say I've seen it all - old 4th Div to Premiership, Wembley and Europe. PUP.

1974 until nowish. 1985-2010 seasons hardly missed a home game. Last season I put me & my life first so not so many games.
