You'll find Detroit and Cleveland are "big" cities in America, they aren't what you call big markets though.

big clubs in england -- man utd - liverpool -- arsenal-- everton---chelsea----newcastle-----man city ---- tottenham-----leeds----aston villa----sunderland---birmingham----west ham .

southampton are bigger than bolton wigan reading fulham hull etc
Can you explain how a "big" club can be 20th in the Championship? They haven't been docked points either.

Yes I can see what you are saying piazza but you are going off figures on a tv channel the likes of Haggler and SAL live in England and know the areas you are talking about .

Leeds are huge club and would be easy in the top 6 supported clubs in the country .

As for Nottingham Forest is a big City maybe they arnt a good club anymore but lets face facts 2 european cup wins earns them the right to be called a decent club .

And Im from manchester and I live close to Blackburn whether its a small club in the premiership or not they will never drop down the league as the town itself isnt a small town it is pretty big .

Bradford were in the top flight for 2 seasons so cant be included and Swindon were in for 1 back in 1993-94 so why include them ?

As for Southampton and Portsmouth both clubs are very close and while they arnt the richest clubs they have great support 20.000 a week .

What you have to remember is England is only a small place so our towns and Citys arnt huge compared to america so for southampton and Portsmouth it is equal to say Villa's 35.000 fans as if you average fans to size of city it evens it up .

But you make a good point about relagated clubs .

The teams you missed out that would be the best point would be the Sheffield clubs who have a good fan base but have all but disappeared .

All I was trying to do.

I thought of including the Sheffield clubs, but they're still in the Championship, so I decided not to, some of my earliest memories are of Le Tissier and Pearce, and to see how far Southampton and Forest have fell is pretty crazy.

Yes it is pretty crazy but thats the game it goes in cycles it isnt long since City were in league 1 and they still would be if it wasnt for a miracle .

for me it totally depends uopn the players thay have when they go down and whether they can keep them........like birmingham now and say west brom...if the baggies were to go down i'd expect them to bounce straight back up as they have great championship players but not great premiership ones- hence if they were relegated they'd probably hang on to most of them as blues have done.

if blackburn did go down and they could hang on to most of the players would expect them to bounce back, but i don't think they'll go down this year especially with fat sam in charge

They will stay up. But I can see what you're saying too.

However, I would expect them to stay up. A few of their best players would leave. But I think what was left would still see them come back up if they have the right manager, and if it was still Sam that would definitely be the right manager.

I did hear, though, that when Jack Walker (correct name?) died, he left Blackburn a lot of money but it is released slowly, so as they can't spend it all at once and it is to keep to club secure. I'm not sure if that's the case though, so it's far from reliable information.
