Re: Bury & Bolton Wanderers liquidation
Unfortunately it's not like back in the fifties/sixties/seventies when gates / attendances were the lifeblood of the clubs, in fact truth be told Newcastle & Sunderland were happier to be in the 2nd division because they were more successful either vieing for or getting promotion to the 1st division therefore getting bigger gates. The difference is now that the gates teams get in the Premier league are incidental as far as finances are concerned because the reality is Premier League teams can get by very nicely thanks even if the grounds were empty such is the television money pumped in by Sky/BT & the overseas money that is pumped in from all over the world because the PL is the most marketable brand of it's type in the world, It's a global gold nugget.
The reality is that the football clubs most reliant on gate receipts are the ones outside of the PL who for the most part rely on gate receipts to exist, so fans boycotting these clubs would make their situations even worse! The problem lies with PL & the solution lies with the PL!
