What has shocked me is just how much difference fans make as far as my personal football experience is concerned. Even when watching on TV, I have realised I am always keeping an eye on the crowd too, it’s part of the spectacle, the experience.
For me the whole experience of no fans has been an empty one. Just cannot get into it in the same way. I find my concentration waning. I really wished fans meant more to the top 2 divisions because for me, football without fans really does mean nothing.
As for Walsall, I was a semi-regular attendee, but pretty all much all of my mates have stopped going - although there are one or two that still go that try and tempt me back more regularly. I think they have taken the ■■■■ a little too much off the field for my liking; if we get full disclosure, transparency and a plan, I will be back, otherwise, I honestly doubt it
