It’s a debate that many Football League fans constantly have, just who is the ‘biggest club’ in the league?
For fans of ‘smaller’ clubs, it’s a tired old debate that seeks to reinforce the old hierarchies of League football. For fans of ‘bigger’ clubs it is something to hold on to during times of hardship.
Whilst many would argue against the benefit of the debate, it does seem to figure heavily in the mentality of many up and down the 72 Football League teams. It affects things from where players go to, what sponsorship deals clubs can attract, which club is taken over by wealthy foreign investors, even down to how teams approach individual games against each other.
For such a subjective debate, it has a massive impact on the actualities of life in the Football League.
This article is an attempt to use statistics and data to quantify what makes a big club and then rank all 72 of the current line-up of Football League teams.
