As GF or CMG goes on & on about "if only....." mostly marketing & missing fans issues, for which he has a point, what other "If only" moments has our club experienced? Not match days of course as if only we won every game we ever played, we'd be quite decent.

If only Fulham RL had been competitive in their 1st year in Div 1 & not relegated.

If only the pipe hadnt have broken destroying the Craven Cottage pitch, Fulham FC might have beaten Leicester City & been promoted to the old 1st Division easing funding issues.

If only the club had not signed Shaun Hoare for £50k & taken Henderson Gill instead.

If only the RFL had refused to register Fulham RL free agents until moral compensation was paid to Roy & Babs Close so they got more than just goal posts & shirts for buying the club.

If only the Bartrams had never existed.

If only Tony Currie's side had come 1st not 2nd.

If only we had beaten Leeds in the CC Final.

If only Bloodgate hadn't happened & the supportive Chairman & CEO of Quins RU stepping down leaving us to deal with David Ellis.

If only northern players didn't miss their mums & go home almost as soon as they arrived (better these days).

If only we hadn't had to move grounds so often.

I'm now depressing myself so time for :DRUNK: Please add to the list :ASK:

If only we had an owner who chose to invest in marketing the club.

JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Not so fast!

If only David Hughes had given Gutters the job - we'd be playing in our own stadium with crowds of 10,000 OR we wouldn't be ( and perhaps that would be the last we'd hear of him!)

I never mentioned owning a stadium, but given one of my clients here has seen their crowds increase by 350% over 6 years, 10k does seem an achievable figure.
