Carrying on the expansion theme, how many fans do you reckon it takes to keep a team viable (not successful just survival) at whatever level it's at.

I think for a start you need to be based within a ground you can afford. You need a few Directors willing to bankroll the club at its most basic levels when needed. If you have that I'd guess you need the following for each level.

SL: 3,000 very regular fans (Salford, Hudds and ourselves just scrape in) and that's only due to SKY money.

Championship: 1000

League 1: 300

Don't wish to be negative but those levels are quite low yet we struggle to even maintain those, even our most successful teams are hardly breaking records. It shows to me what a small sport we now are. Something needs to give.
