  • Captain_Sensible changed the title to Last 100k+ domestic gate not involving OF

UK? Most of the FA Cup finals in the 60s are listed at 100000. Scotland wise I'm sure you're right. Cup finals and huge games at Ibrox were the only ones that got above 100k really

Was the 1959 Scottish Cup Final the last 100k + attendance at a domestic U.K. match not involving either of the OF? St Mirren v Aberdeen

Happy to be proved wrong on my wild statement

Nope. It was Motherwell v St Mirren in the Scottish Cup at Fir Park in the 1976/77 season, and ninety-nine thousand of them were Buddies.

Here to help. 😎

Correct if mean domestic club games: i.e. excluding 1960 European Cup at Hampden, and Scotland v England games until 1972 (plus couple of WC 1966 qualifiers).

There were more Saints fans inside Fir Park than there have ever been Motherwell fans 😜

I’m gonna make a wild statement and I’m gonna back that wild statement up with a video that proves sweet f**k all.

You’ll no doubt notice that after our first there were buddies near the corner flag. Then yours, there were plenty of Motherwell fans in the “away” end and not celebrating. It was one for the things before redevelopment that people could move freely and also doesn’t take account of the main stand which would be predominately home support too and far from an unequivocal imbalance as you make out and go on and on and on about.

I’m really not sure how you can spout your pish and expect it to be a thing when it’s clearly not

The song “You’re only here to see St Mirren!” made its first public release that day. 😂 

No matter what anyone says the impact Fergie and that team had on the crowds increases going to see St Mirren during his spell there will likely never be repeated elsewhere at the level we were competing at.

You were only there to see The St Mirren or you weren’t, make up your mind! 😂

Crowd was 10k bigger than your biggest attendance that season (against Rangers) and was bigger than you’ve ever had since or ever will again

but yeh, huge swathes of Lanarkshire fans happened to turn out for a 4th round Scottish Cup tie at home to a lower division side 😂

Over 27,000 (me included) at Fir Park that day 😉 at a total low point in Scottish football attendances 

As Jack Copland stated, he’d never known anything like it, even cup finals at Hampden with Dundee Utd. They couldn’t find enough buses to take Buddies to Fir Park, they had to get a police escort to get the Saints team bus to the ground.

Alex Ferguson did that. I know that more than your average bud. 

More buddies in Fir Park that day than there have ever been Motherwell fans.😘
