How many people, should the unthinkable happen to Bury tomorrow, will read the headline about Bury going bust without caring then sit back and watch Sky Sports whilst drinking their pints of Carling.
There are huge swathes of the public, possibly two generations of them now that have been sold what they see is what they need for football. They don’t realise that they are part of the problem and too self interested to do their bit. After all ‘the public gets what the public wants’.
Good luck Bury.
How many teams in leagues below go out of business and never hit our radar?
I always see comments about how premier league fans don’t care, or that prem clubs should fork out and support lower leagues financially.
I think if we blame anyone else other than the owner of that particular club we are just wrong. Football is a business; if I ran my business on debts I wouldn’t expect someone higher up to throw me a bone. Life’s tough.
If someone wants to watch premier league football, so what? It’s their decision. How can we blame that culture for a club being poorly run?
Infact, I can’t remember a time when football in league two has been so well supported. Lincoln averaging 8k fans and notts county pullin in 15k fans every so often
