    Big Clubs And Where We Stand In The List

    https://fanbanter.co.uk/how-englands...ge-attendance/

    Although it's based on historical attendances , I think this gets it about right

    We are a mid placed second tier football club , wish we weren't but there you go

    If you do it on historical league position, we’re also around the same position.

    Chelsea, as stated numerous times, a historically well supported club prior to investment, and itís lean times in the 80ís where it nearly went bankrupt due to the construction of the East Stand.

    Chelsea are one of the biggest clubs in the country

    My mate from Southport , an Everton fan is always saying the same

    I say to him if Everton were relegated to Sunderlands position and stayed in league 1 for a few seasons they wouldn't be getting 30000 a week like Sunderland do

    Chelseas support in the 80s was utter gash. They were poorly supported until Matthew Harding came along in the 90s.

    Big club my arse

    The support of all clubs in the eighties was poor

    Have you looked at ours ?

    Leeds v Cardiff , 1983 , 1000 of us

    12500 at Elland Road

    Birmingham City , Promotion game v us , about to be relegated, 2500 of us

    15000 at St Andrews

    Newcastle v Us , 1984

    14500 St James Park

    But Chelsea and Newcastle etc, as proved by the figures are generally big clubs with big support

    Unfortunately we ain't

    I never made comment about us. I know exactly were we sit in the grand scheme of things. We are about a middling championship team in terms of history and support.

    You think Chelsea are a big club, their historic league attendances would disagree with you.

    Top 6 in the all-time attendance league. Not too shabby.

    Manchester United – 40,360
    Liverpool – 34,763
    Arsenal – 34,701
    Tottenham – 34,101
    Newcastle – 32,757
    Chelsea – 32,473

    I find that very hard to believe, given Man united have had an average less 40,360 for 7 seasons since 1949/50

    Maybe they weren't so popular for the 50+ years prior to that.

    Didn’t they get crowds of 60/75,000 once upon a time?

    The point is you said Chelsea had poor crowds in the eighties ......so did most British clubs

    They had a season when they averaged 18000

    That season we averaged 2904

    Same with Newcastle , a season of poor gates and people think they are fickle fans whilst the team we supported were getting shocking gates

    Considering we have spent most of our existence in the lower leagues it's to be expected. If we had spent as many years in the top league as Man utd then we would be much higher.

    We have spent many years in the lower leagues because we dont have the fan base or interest in ccfc

    When we went down from the championship in 1986 ish it took us 17 years to get back

    It's taken Sunderland 3 years and Sheff Weds won't be long coming back up

    That's why they are big clubs

    Pompey have been down a few years but I doubt it will take them long to get back up

    Chelsea had 8000 for a game in the then 2nd division.

    Even by 80s standards that was gash
