What defines a big football club?


Recommended Posts

Crowds  , trophies won and what league you're in. But it's like cocks,  it's no good having a big one if you don't know how to use it.  The same goes to owners of clubs.

It used to be history etc but not so anymore.

I think the modern bay big club makes enough money to run itself, is successful and has a good consistent fan base.

look at Red star Belgrade huge club one of the best club teams to grace the game in the late80s/early 90s,the young team nowadays couldn't tell ye what league they play in ffs lol

 

Ajax & Benfica aswell even bigger clubs than Red Star

Half the clubs in the premier league could turn a profit without fans attending now because of TV revenue, take that TV revenue away and half of them would have less financial muscle than Sunderland. 

For me current success and whether or not a club is big are two different things.

in your opinion?

I'd say a club in the bottom half of the championship pulling in over 40,000 fans against Swansea because they've just hired the Brentford boss is a big club, but I am slightly biased.

Villa have good history though a EC makes for a big club imo and they will always have good attendences
