Crowd at England v Germany Women's football tonight,77,700 plus. Just mentioning.
I'm reading this wonderful book just now, entitled 'I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That'.

So, shall we break this marvellous 77,700 figure down into paying categories then? :D

Whatever you wish. I watched the game on T.V. I was just surprised at such an attendance, nothing more.

Was also billed as a "sell out" which even by the most generous of definitions of "sell" it quite plainly isn't.

Mr Goldacre? If you haven't read his Bad Science I'd heartily recommend it. Top 5 in my pop science books. But more importantly on the theme of doctors turned authors you absolutely have to, have to read This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay.

The funniest book I have ever read, hands down, by a million miles. I'll personally pay you £50 if you don't love it.

I was speaking to a Man City fan last night. He mentioned that all season ticket holders could watch the Man City v Man U womens match for free back in September. The attendance for that game was 31,000. Pretty good but how many paid?

Man City have an average crowd of 9,092 yet Everton (Bottom of the 'Super League') only 565. Tickets for Man City women are between £6.50 and £8.50 per game but there does not appear to be any public record of how many are actually paying.

Fascinating to be alive in the time when we took the world's best game and decided to ruin it.

Indeed. He does seem to be coming across a little like Martin Lewis though, viz, knows his stuff but can put it across in a very patronising manner. Will definitely check out Bad Science though.

It’s nice to see the women’s game get such interest Tango, regardless of how much or not people pay.
