    A really interesting read. It is amazing how many Plymouth and Wednesday fans are enthralled by Ridsdale and Mandaric, I suspect only because there was no viable alternative.

    Also interesting how it is still the “small” clubs that go to the wall, Chester City, Ilkeston Town, Bromsgrove Rovers, whilst the bigger clubs get chance after chance and more extra time than an away side clinging on to a draw at Old Trafford. I think those extra chances might diminish in 2011.

  2. I would be really angry if Ridsdale got involved in my club. after what he did at Cardiff with blatant lies to fans I woudln’t trust him…and that comes from a Wrexham fan with our history!!

    I can’t believe there’s not a mention for some Non-League clubs in here. Croyden? Chester City? Ilkeston? They’re surely all worth a mention for differing reasons.

    The same can be said for FC Halifax, AFC Wimbledon, FC United, the new Chester FC and so on, who are showing that football can be successfully run in a different way, a way which eventually benefits the fans.

    With so many clubs teetering on the edge, this year could see many clubs re-formed as fan-owned clubs. Whilst the process is not a pleasant one (I’m a Chester fan, so I do know!) it leaves clubs, and fans, in a position where they can be proud of their club again.

    Excellent article about the football league, although with at least three non-league clubs going out of business in 2010, there could have been more said. Although there is probably more than enough to talk about in the BSP alone, let alone lower down the pyramid.
