I'm of the opinion that we are fine with the fan-owned funded route and we should refrain from the temptation to think further success can only be achieved by a 'rich' benefactor. Those clubs can enjoy their success at the moment but it's all short-term in relative terms, ours is the longer-term view and guarantee of the club's future.

Why would Brad be bothered, as he doesn't put money in and they're self sustaining?

They have a crack commercial team that brings in shed loads of sponsorship money. Honest guv, it's all true.

The crowds are down as the locals will be at the stadium of light watching the machems. We'll be lucky if they bring 200 next week.

The crowds are down because north east football fans are a strange lot. Prefer to watch teams lower down the pyramid due to them haveing cheaper admission and winning most weeks, they love the vase or shall we say northern league knock out cup more than the trophy

spennymoor average is 850 blyth 731 gateshead 873.. it was a cold tuesday night spenny v kidd still 575 and £14 entry, how many clubs would like £14 entry and 575 on a tuesday night, having said that, if it was £12 entry, i think another 100 on gate would be possible

Spennymoor crowds aren't really down, they finished on an average of 834 last season in the league and are currently on 850. After 11 league games lasts season they were on 919 so maybe a drop from that.

Las season may have been higher if they didn't have 3 games played at Harrogate Town but it's safe to say they are around about where they were really. Also depending on how their seasons ends it may rise.

Spenny batting average is probably between 600/700 and higher for the bigger games where they get decent away support like Darlo, York and Blyth.

If those crowds aren't enough for Brad then not sure what they can do.

Their crowds are fine relative to the size of the town. They don't "deserve" more just because they have a chairman who decided to toss a load of vibes down a football club shaped wishing well.
