When the club is successful they turn out in their thousands and reap the benefits of the glory days. When the team starts under performing they fall away generally leaving a wages deficit.
Yes the few fans that are left to hold the club together deserve our praise and there are all sorts of chairman and boardroom egos that gamble with the finances, but in general it is in response to fan pressure and the fear of falling gate receipts.
Spot on. The other problem Bolton have is HMRC’s openly declared intention of forcing a league club to go bust to discourage others from going into administration and evading tax liabilities.
