Say they had a 30k stadium and sold £1k season tickets. That'd be another £20mil. It's not chump change but they got £105mil in prize (TV) money last year.

The argument as to whether the old firm would compete in the epl is absurd. The money floating about, any top flight Scottish club (and some championship ones) would do as well as the other diddy clubs.

They should have replaced him last summer IMO, but I doubt they'll get much better than him for the Championship (maybe Nigel Pearson's the obvious one). Howe looked a proper broken man at the end of the season though so it could actually be a mutual decision rather than a euphemism for the sack.

Interesting table if you compare the money spent to points. Howe has done a good job under this lens. Sheff United and Burnley as well.

That's Klopp eh. The best manager in the world by a considerable distance. Neville nailed it with him, he makes £30 million players into £100 million players.

Such a weird appointment. Club channels are by definition tinpot, so I suppose they deserve credit for trying to up their game, but this is the equivalent of hiring Jamie Oliver to make you cheese on toast.

I think this will be the old firm moving to selling direct to their own fans and not going with a sky deal when this one finishes. Bit like the idea post setanta collapse.

There are 9 (technically 10) clubs with bigger stadiums than Bournemouth in Scotland.

Whilst stadium capacity isn't necessarily indicative of club size, it shows how diddy Bournemouth really are. Big teams don't have smaller stadiums than Greenock Morton FFS Monty Chuckle
