It takes forever to gather all of the levies. There was no time crunch for Robb to ask for more troops. To send a raven, after he was declared King and his father executed, to assemble another host. He is aware that the Lannisters are doing so, there is nothing to stop him doing the same. Similarly there is nothing stopping him doing that when he knows the Ironborn are there (even though he knows many have returned home due to Balon's death) yet he is still pulling out his entire Northern army and expecting the Freys to support him in his bid to retake the North. While this is not conclusive it does strongly suggest that the North does not have huge numbers left, otherwise Robb is just an idiot for not once considering to use them. It also makes them look even more dishonorable, that with all these men still at home they sent none to the Wall or Moat Cailin and a pitiful amount to Winterfell when it was captured and Robb's brothers taken prisoner.
