The reason I think CN is probably our "level" right now is primarily due to the rent we allegedly pay on the ground. I have no more insight to our finances and those of other clubs than anyone else (and even if I did, I'm not really an accountant) but to cite Solihull Moors as an example of a club succeeding on "meagre resources" strikes me as potentially wrong for a few reasons:

- They have bigger crowds than us
- Solihull is a very affluent part of the UK (more inwards investment perhaps?)
- Better location next to the UK's second biggest city
- Likely more commercial revenue made from the ground
- Likely much lower rent
- Their ground is far less developed than ours, therefore much lower maintenance costs

York Street is expensive to maintain and costs a fortune in rent. We are as it stands only the 35th best-supported non-league club in the country. We still have a reputation as being one of the bigger non-league clubs in the country, but this is by reputation only. I don't disagree we should be ambitious and aim high, and I think when we're a successful club again we can easily bounce our way into the top ten best-supported clubs, but I also think a hefty dose of realism as to where we are right now will help everyone appreciate what it is going to take to climb back to the top.
spot on Pete.
"the top" in reality is the league above, possibly L2?
however, i guess we can look at Stevenage, Fleetwood and Forest green as glowing (sort of) lights?

Darker forces Pete??
It was the far right who warned us at the last referendum not to join  .now its the far right (allegedly) who want us out... :)
Or maybe its the fear of globalization??
As i put in an earlier post if you look  at the former yogoslavia as a  microcosm of the EU where different creeds languages and cultures are put under one "heading"  it doesnt end up well.
The biggest fear the Brussels types have is who will follow uk.
The Common Market has disappeared  a long time ago and been replaced by the red tape ridden over bearing wasteful monster that the EU has become..

Pete..
you are an educated man and i respect your opinion
but do you feel the EU at present is a good thing?
if we were not in it would you think it would be  a good idea to join?
is it a worry that some of its member states are reported as being bankrupt or very close to it?
surely we cant just print money?
should the UK be one of those putting more in than it gets out? (i guess that can be explained away by some advanced economics)
Do you feel that the initial premise of a free trade area has been replaced by something far bigger, far more unwieldy?
is the way Brussels is making things awkward for us to leave is to show others (Italy and Greece spring to mind) on just how difficult they will make it for anyone wanting out?
i voted out as you may have guessed, in some ways i hope there is a second referendum and the vote is much wider one way or the other. i hate this division.
Maybe those who didn't vote may just come out .. lets just hope its not raining :)

So we all hate Thatcher, but are merrily supporting a clean break from the EU that will allow the ultra-right wingers the freedom to finish what she started and decimate the working class in areas still reeling from de-industrialisation?

Okay.
Its a funny old game this politics lark....
Back in the day staunch left wingers voiced there thoughts on entering the EU.
Listen to speeches by Tony Benn Peter Shore and Michael Foot...
Watch them on youtube...
As a "young progressive" i thought they were daft... (nb i never thought they were xenophobic racist bigots #gammon!)
Now its apparently the ultra right who want us out ;)

Yugoslavia is an interesting example of various nations/creeds/cultures being ruled by one government...

Mind you if being lead by an unelected  drunk who cant sort a  pair of shoes out is your kind of democracy then you are welcome to it....
As we were warned by the above guys in the 70's and didnt listen maybe the youngsters whose 'lives we have ruined" may see it differently in the future..
