Where Were We? 
Attendances
 
Middlesbrough

This is what we've unearthed on this lot so far. If you've got anything more, 
give us a shout at attendances@nufc.com.

Boro attendances are a joke (Less than 6,000 at home to Bolton the day
Andy Cole got his hat trick v Liverpool in Nov 1993, for example), but

1984-85 season average gate at Ayresome 5,135. No, really. 

- Middlesbrough have NEVER finished as the best supported north-east club. In 1985 their average attendance was only 700 more than Darlington's!

These figures are from the Sunday Sun 1993-94
