Who’s a bigger club than who will always be a debate among football fans and we wouldn’t have it any different.
Rivals giving it the big’un online and giving their solid reasoning’s (or not) for why their team is bigger will never die. Where it’s ‘we won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy once,’ or ‘we’ve got more fans than you,’ - it’s damn important to you.
Those opinions are engraved in us and our they will never change no matter how many valid or invalid opinions are placed upon us. ‘You’re entitled to your opinion but it is very much wrong,’ is the one and only correct mindset when defending our clubs.
Attendances will always be an interesting one though.
They do for the most part show the popularity of certain clubs and bigger attendances generate increased revenue - again, for the most part anyway.
Watching teams like Brentford and Bournemouth win promotion to the Premier League in recent years whilst Portsmouth and Sunderland struggle to make their way out of League One proves in itself that size sometimes doesn’t matter.
But what if it did? What would this year’s Championship table look like based solely on average attendances of each team.
We’ve given a full run down of highest to lowest attendances from 21/22 and compared that to the current real time position of each team.
