    My Name is Will Pownall I am Masters student at the University of Surrey and a huge football fan. For my dissertation topic I have chosen to analyse the factors which affect match attendance in English professional football and their relation to fan loyalty. I chose this topic because the club I support my local team - Aldershot Town FC have struggled with attendance figures over the past few seasons. I know Aldershot are not alone in this struggle and my research aims to find out why fans are not attending games.

    I am asking football fans up and down the country to take a maximum of 5 minutes of their time to fill in a short questionnaire. I will be sending the results of my research to football clubs in England so by doing this you will be helping English football clubs improve the match day experience for fans!

    Please follow the link below to complete the questionnaire.

    Done. Some interesting questions. You might like to add "does your owner showing no consideration to fans and refusing to listen to anyone elses opinion alienate life long fans?"

    Done, you should also add, Does your owner saying one thing, then doing completely the ****ing opposite cause you to bang your head against a brick wall?

    Done. As a slight aside, I went to watch Altrincham v Luton in the Conference about 3-4 years ago and the price for even that was £12.50.

    What you need to do is add another 10/11,000 seats and you will be ok:p

    I did a dissertation on the demand curve for Div 3 (i.e. 4th tier at the time) football for my dissertation. It was pretty good fun and interesting - good luck with yours!

    I like to go watch Ferriby now and then, and that is a staggering £10 which seems high for the level which they are at. That considered against a Cat C game at city being £16 this year.
