Default Re: Are we the next Salford/Forest Green/Fleetwood?

In the 80s we had mass unemployment in the area under Thatcher, starting with the closing of the steelworks, money was very tight and those in work had low paying jobs, for a family supporter food on the table and paying the bills came first.

That along with terrible football after the success of the late 70s was bound to hit the support.

The problem we have today is even though the attendances are very good for non league, kids growing up today have never seen us in the football league and lots have jumped on the scouse Liverpool bandwagon, getting them to watch won't be easy.

We will be very lucky to get attendances regularly like in the 70s.

But if these potential new buyers are as superb rich as rumoured and are serious about taking us forward who knows?

One thing is certain if this bid is a failure then I fear that the club might not last the full season before dying.

Yes.

Imo you cannot create a new fanbase.

But I'm only taking them because I went as a kid, my father before then and grandad etc

If someone was to set up a club in Caergwrle for example, plough millions into it, get them into the football league. You'd get some fans jumping on the bandwagon, but generally most of those supporters probably have their roots at other clubs already. You're creating a soulless fake club imo

M K Dons did not have a club until 16 years ago.
Last years average crowds of 9,000+ would shoot that one down.

There's still a slight affiliation with Wimbledon though isn't there.

Some followed Wimbledon up to Milton K, others formed AFC Wimbledon.

Generally speaking you can't create a fanbse. I suppose the difference with Mk is the size of the area with hardly any teams around.

unlikely. but if it did grow naturally over time, not like salford that went from 170 real fans to 2,000 jokers, that would be fine.

but they are a disgrace for other reasons. if MK had started at stage 8 and worked their way up, that would be cool. Stealing someone else team is the problem there.
