Of course they would. History is full of formerly big, now forgotten clubs.

I would only agree if they were to spend many seasons at that level. I can but hope!

Bradford is the fifth biggest city in the country and the team was in the Premier League for a couple of seasons not too long ago. That said, they should be a bigger club than they are.

Telford's capacity is more like 6-7000 not 11,000.

As a Bradford fan I can vouch our ground holds 25,250, The reason we are not a bigge club is because of this thread really lol

Our mad chairman spent 7.5m on a second tier and a corner for our main stand(where the 1985 fire stand was) which we obviously did not need.

THis and ITV Digital was the reason we went bust

We currently average 10k in League 2 which is still pretty good :-)

One day we will be back :-D

So if Manchester United ended up playing in League Two, would they then become a small club?

Yes, Do you consider Preston, Derby, Huddersfield or Burnley big clubs? They are all multiple title winning teams of the past.

Grimsby is also the only stadium where the odds for winning the half time lucky draw is 50/50

I'll get my coat

Not Wigan?

They aren't big clubs... but look at it from the other side and there is no way you can call them small clubs either.
