An excellent article.Football at the higher end has lost its connection with ordinary people.I work with some pretty rich entrepreneurs but even they struggle with the idea of PL players of even average ability earning £50k a week.

I don't think the answer is simply about passing more money down to lower league clubs as invariably it will end up in players pockets-probably making the current situation worse through clubs paying more to try and get up to the PL.

Basically most of the TV money is leaving the game through player wages and agents-its certainly not being reinvested in any great sums.Not a great business model for the longer term.Short tetm it has created an elite,long term very bad for the essence of our game which is a league system.

What a pity they don't make the playform and financial rules more like the rugby where you can go to a game and see a competitive match with the result in doubt.

Anyway,good luck to Barrow and Paul Casson today

4,414 there today. Im sure they sold out against Oldham in the FA Cup a few years ago?

If thats the capacity would they even be allowed in the football league if they got promoted? Thought it was a minimum of 6,000 capacity?

Capacity wise Its 5k with 2k seats. On promotion you have to be in that position at the start of your 3rd season in the league providing your ground meets all the other regulations in time for the start of your first season in the league.

Last year on the Barrow website there was the results of a report they had done by some independent consultants that concluded they could take their place in the league if promoted with an immediate investment of less that 150k on the ground which would be just things like new turnstiles pa system etc etc but its all complicated by the fact that you only get one shot at the one off grant youre entitled to on achieving promotion to the league and to maximise that you need to look at committing to spending 1.6 million to get the 50% grant that is capped at 800k which providing you can find your half youd be daft not to as its free money that you.ll never get the opportunity to earn ever again.

As i understand it Casson has a plan with about seven scenarios and options for any number of eventualities which start at spending about 50k just to do what they need to do to maintain the the status quo or even achieve a small increase should they not get promoted up to Announcing a new stadium and spending as little as possible at HS to make it comply with what the league would want done in the meantime if they got promoted. [If they can see you are serious and are well down the road to a new stadium the league would give you dispensation against having to meet the 5k and 2k seats at your present stadium so as not to waste money on the old ground ]

If you watch the tv pics from the game today its not hard to see how they could easily achive a 6k capacity just by building a couple of blocks of proper terracing to either side of the main stand and as i understand it simply re concreting the terracing in a few places would give them an increase of nearly 500 on the limit that was placed on it today.

And before anyone jumps in those figures are off the top of my head and i stand to be corrected by anyone who has the time and inclination to search a number of websites to check because i dont.

Barnet will have increased considerably with the opening of the new stand just before Xmas

And the figure at Accrington is in a state of flux at the minute for example they currently dont have the minimum 2k seats but were given dispensation to remove the seats from their end to increase the capacity in there ready for when they demolish the small side ready for construction of the new stand to start in the summer and at the same time ensure the overall capacity stayed over the 5k minimum.

When the new stand is completed the seats will number about 2.8k and the capacity will rise to about 5.8k but if they do another couple of bits of associated work they can get that up to 7k quite easily. The whole of the area around the ground has had a good tidy up with new car parks created at both ends of the ground and they are trying to get permission for a new access road the the Clayton end but the local residents are holding that up a bit at the minute

"With the building of the North Stand, the overall capacity of the Hive Stadium, has risen to over 6,400. However it was a condition of the local planning permission, when the Hive was first built that no more than 5,176 fans would be allowed to attend a match. This condition is still in place, so the Club now have a larger capacity stadium, than they can actually use, which is a bit bizarre...."

Yes thats one of the reasons without doubt but when you look at how Accrington can have a squad nearly 50% larger than ours with a turnover thats i doubt a quarter of ours and therefore a playing budget a quarter of ours you might start to understand that other clubs play the rules in a way that we dont. I can tell you that evey penny that Andy Holt spends on behalf of the club goes in in a way that increases turnover and therefore wage budget.For instance have a look at where Stanleys online shop is hosted ? how much do you think they pay for that ? Answer is they dont they actually get paid to have it there on the premise that people visting to by a shirt might buy some plastic boxes as well now we all know thats crap but its a legitimate way of injecting 50k a year into the clubs turnover to increase the 55% of it that theyre allowed to spend on players and thats only one example.

Ridiculous how the Crown Ground has been allowed to host league football these last few years really. Terrible access, a Gillford Park-standard stand down one side of the pitch, portaloos for toilets and an appalling pitch with crap drainage. Barely been fit for purpose.

Andy Holt must have been reading your mind as every one of those issues has been or is in the process of being resolved and when the new stand is completed and the new dressing rooms offices shop and hospitality areas are redeveloped over the next two years it will actually become one of the best and most modern lower league grounds.

Most people will notice a massive improvement when they visit at the end of the month if they look beyond the portaloos which would have been gone by now if the FGIT hadnt conned them out of a 50k grant in the summer take a look at the Fan Zone at the Clayton end and what will appear at the away end will be a mirror image of that.

At least they have painted the place and made other cosmetic improvements unlike another ground we all know that i could mention.

Rochdale are unfortunately (for Cumbria) enjoying their best period in the modern game, the best squad they have ever had, just unfortunate we have both been drawn against a club who are having their 'Premier League' moment teetering in and around the play-off positions in League One.

They have probably spunked that 900k they got recently and will be rubbing shoulders with Newport again before you know it.

Keith Hill has done an unbelievable job at Rochdale, if he gets them into the Championship it'll be up there with some of the best achievements in modern day football. I got laughed at on the old board by a certain Piglet when I said he should be a manager we should go for, simply because he'd failed at Barnsley.
