Pompey Midtable in Attendance Average as a Capacity %

I like the blog that this table came from because he somtimes comes up with stats like this- don't know if he did it himself or if it's from somewhere else- but either way it's a bit disappointing that Pompey are so low. Though I cannot talk because I only go once a year around xmas time. (Spuds this year I hope)

Yesterday EPL Talk looked at the highest average attendances in the Premier League so far this 2007-2007 season. Today, we take a closer look at the 20 clubs to see which grounds have the highest average attendances based on the capacity of their ground.

For example, Arsenal's home matches in the league this season have resulted in an average attendance that's 99.32% of their capacity. All matches are sold out but a large factor for the Gunners and the other clubs below is how many seats the away fans fill -- which could help or hurt a club's attendance depending who it is.

1. Arsenal, Emirates Stadium, 60432 capacity, 99.32% average attendance as % of capacity
2. Manchester United, Old Trafford, 76212, 99.21%
3. Tottenham Hotspur, White Hart Lane, 36247, 99.07%
4. West Ham United, Boleyn Ground, 35089, 98.23%
5. Chelsea, Stamford Bridge, 42449, 97.92%
6. Liverpool, Anfield, 45362, 97.14%
7. Newcastle United, St. James' Park, 52387, 96.93%
8. Derby County, Pride Park, 33597, 95.76%
9. Reading, Madejski Stadium, 24200, 95.71%
10. Portsmouth, Fratton Park, 20888, 95.35%
11. Aston Villa, Villa Park, 42719, 93.52%
12. Everton, Goodison Park, 40170, 91.08%
13. Fulham, Craven Cottage, 24700, 90.32%
14. Manchester City, City of Manchester Stadium, 47300, 89.38%
15. Birmingham City, St Andrews, 30009, 88.09%
16. Sunderland, Stadium of Light, 49000, 85.52%
17. Middlesbrough, Riverside Stadium, 35049, 76.49%
18. Bolton Wanderers, Reebok Stadium, 27879, 75.49%
19. Blackburn Rovers, Ewood Park, 31367, 74.43%
20. Wigan Athletic, JJB Stadium, 25023, 73.69%

Impressively, the top 13 clubs all have average attendances that are 90% or higher of the capacity of their grounds. Wigan, again, ends up bottom of the list with only 73.69% of their seats being filled on average.
