A break-even figure of 8,000 was quoted for attendances a few years back, so we are well off solvency at current levels.

That will be hit further if we fail to gain promotion.

I fear that we will be in serious trouble for survival if we fail to be promoted this season. At best we'll be making up the numbers in the Championship and stand a good chance of relegation next season, whichever division we are in. Relegation from the Premiership is no big deal; relegation from the Championship will see a serious refactoring of the club.

Whatever happens, I'll be supporting the team.
