    Very impressive attendance figures indeed for the Championship that really underlines just how important football is to the fabric of the country. Every town, city and borough up and down the land has a passionate, dedicated and loyal fanbase of a local club – some bigger than others of course. Scudamore, of course, doesn’t give a monkeys about this as he’s only concerned with the Premier League and making as much money as possible. It’s refreshing to know that our national game remains in rude health right throughout the land. Maybe if the PL decided to jet off abroad, some would argue it could be better if they decided to stay there?

    oh, and Franchise were knocked off the top of the 4th. That’s worth a mention isn’t it?

    Not everything’s rosey in the Championship. We went to see (with 15,000 others) Palace play Wolves the other week. A dire encounter between two teams scrapping for play-off places that I had to fork out £35 for the pleasure of watching.

    The most worrying aspect though was the demography – plenty of men over 40 but very few in the 16-25 bracket, and almost no families. Maybe it’s always been like this but it was the first time i had properly noticed it.
