    I really wish they’d put up side by side numbers of tickets sold and actual attendance. They’re terrified of what the transparency of actual attendance says about the product on the field and the club’s marketing.

    Had a good conversation today with the guys around me about how “name” players like Lampard and Pirlo would bring in the tourist fans, people visiting NYC on vacation and wanting to take in a match. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen an abundance of foreigners at the stadium for a match - saw a bunch Wednesday for Bastian, and today there were a few Portuguese for Nani. Would like to see a move for Sturrage to take advantage of the British ex-pats and bring a different dimension to the attack.

    Tickets sold is how every team in America lists attendance. There's a lot of transparency issues with this team, the listed attendance isn't one of them. It is odd how many no-shows there appear to be. Why are 5,000 people/gm buying tickets but deciding not to go?

    I don't think Sturridge would do anything for attendance. Not a national team hero and didn't make enough of a mark at any of his PL stops to drive enthusiasm. I don't think he was every beloved by the Liverpool fans like Beckham, Gerrard or a Lampard was.

    Because the product & game day experience is subpar, or not important enough to be a priority, and they’re willing to eat the cost when either something better comes along, which is easy in NYC, or they don’t fancy the windy weather. My wife bailed this morning when she saw the forecast - I doubt she’s a special situation.

    Listen, I won't even buy a ticket to an outdoor sports event in this area until at least mid-May. So I totally get that. But the no-show issue extended into the summer last year.

    Because it costs more to park than the tickets themselves. So might as well eat them when they don’t sell on SH. I took and $13 hit on 2 tickets today and didn’t even pay SH fees.

    It was nice to see Pirlo back at the stadium with the Champions League trophy

    That’s my second point - it’s easy for the non-diehard to find something more interesting in the city to do. They have the tickets as a backup, and the cost to eat them is evidently not an issue, or not great enough to forgo the non-soccer event.

    Just to quickly correct this, most pro sports franchises announce "tickets distributed" but it is not a hard and fast rule. Some clubs, like the Miami Marlins new owners, announce tickets sold (dont count freebies and sponsor seats), some do turnstile. Most teams don't explicitly say how they are reporting their attendance, but not all follow the same standard.
