I can't see the club surviving Chris. Even the rfl can see the club is drawing its final breaths.
Looks carp on telly. Sends lots of negative signals out and in spite of lots of effort, investment and perseverance the clubs decline continues so much that attracting a crowd greater than a club in the championship is seemingly too much for the club.
Unless there is some miraculous salvation, the club is doomed. Im unsure the rfl can prevent it even if they wanted to.

Not a lot to show for 18 years of elite football. What worries me is that the muppets on sky are now trying to sell us the club based on their youth development or so it seemed last night. I am sure we would be getting gates of around 6000 regularly if allowed back in the top flight surely better or the game than 1837 that's for sure.

Move over and make way for the Fevolution.

Doubt they will admit they've failed in London and it would be a huge embarrassment for the sport to lose the Broncos if that's what they're called at the moment.

expansion isn't working, time for some contraction and a dose of realism.

The Rovers have never had a 6,000 average. According to my now diminishing memory the best was something over 5,000 many years ago for one season only. Unless of course somebody knows different.

Where is all the money coming from to keep this club viable?. No business man in their right minds would be ploughing money into a financial pit without the expectation of a return. These attendances will not pay the ground rent, never mind the wages. A lost cause I am afraid, as predicted.

I thought somebody said Feisal had put a fat wedge in. Plus you've got your land, obviously.

Think they are talking about London Griff. Fev will have other avenues of revenue when all comes to fruition.

Yes and as far as I can remember we have never had close to 3000 in the second division either. I think we could walk 6000 in SL 3-4000 home support and 2000 away, easy.

I remember in the season we averaged about 4800 ish,i think it was around 1995. But the attendance i remember was when we played sheffield we got 3500 to 3600 fans with hardly any of there fans,no change there. There was great travelling support in those days. Wigan and both hull teams used bring 1500 to 2500 fans. Up the rovers. I think we could easly average4000 to 4500. Is that enough to sustain fully proffesional team is anybodies guess but it would be great trying
WatchED Rovers since 74-75 seasons,as mad about rovers 35 years on(the wife thinks i,m mad).

Nowhere near enough - need at least double that to avoid following the Wakey/Bradford/Salford path.

If we could 'easily average' 5500, itd be a good start.
