Dai Yongge took over Beijing Renhe in 2007. 2020 they were relegated to the 3rd tier. 2021 they were dissolved 🇨🇳

His sister took over KSV Roeselare in 2016. They were relegated to the 3rd tier. They dissolved in 2019 🇧🇪

All League 1 clubs, while we are struggling to stay in League 2.

It's so depressing, and is probably going to get worse

I was going to say, all of the 4 'small' clubs that were mentioned are comfortable in League 1 whilst we are about to post our weakest league finish in history.

Hopefully we can go all D:Ream sooner rather than later, but I won't hold my breath.

I read about that. It's pretty staggering how he managed to pass Fit and Proper. His sister at one stage was one of the richest women on the planet.

All with lower crowds I imagine just furthering the point it’s a massively outdated metric for club size & spending power.

Wrexham lost over £5m in the last 12 months and they ‘owe’ Reynolds et al just shy of £9m in total.

No surprise that they lost lots of money, but the standout think for me was their revenue - £10m, a full quarter of which came from overseas and £3.4m from merchandise. Absolutely ridiculous numbers for (then) National League. Obviously they spend even more, but they're a bit like Manchester United in the Prem - the amount they bring in is just loads more than anyone else.

Stockport with a £4.5m loss in league two 22/23. Finished 4th with 79 points.

6m loan from owner written off as shares to fund it.

Sadly its why the ambition of being self sustaining at this level is largely nonsense. The only way that becomes a reality is via exceptional player sales (see Exeter), or huge non footballing income via additional facilities. Trying to become sustainable without those things just drives down expenditure and will turn is into a non league club.
