I’d say there is a potentially infinite no of Saturdays.

You may feel this is a negative slur on you and/or your club but it really isn't, it is purely how i see the situation.

However, I would genuinely wish them well in the Championship, and to me they seem in a very good position to win it next year.

Also, I have greatly enjoyed visiting the club, albeit for junior fixtures.


They will have 10 other clubs in the same position for company so why not Ealing?


I don't believe there would be 10 other clubs in the same position. 

It is not about being profitable from the get-go.  It is about having the potential to build self-sufficiency, and this is wholly based upon support, and the ability to generate and increase it.


As being in the top division since the inception of the leagues in the 80s is not long enough when do you predict these other clubs will achieve the self sufficency based on support you think they can achieve that Ealing cannot?


The fact that some of these clubs have been in the Top league since the late Eighties is evidence of their self sufficiency.

The point of difference is that if any of these clubs lose their main supporter/source of financial support etc, etc, then they will very likely find another.  Wasps, Bath being the obvious examples that immediately spring to mind.

I don't believe that if/when Ealing lose their support, they will find it a simple transition to a replacement funder.
