We are not in Germany & at the moment we are also not in the Championship or lower leagues. With fan ownership (as good as that sounds) we most certainly will be. let's just explore the Fan ownership thing for a while. We probably have 100,000 fans at most who would be willing/able to invest, if everyone of those fans gave £1,000.00 this would only give us £100,000.000. now while that is a **** load of money to us mere mortals it is small fry when it comes to owning/running a football team. It wouldn't even be enough to buy the club let alone run it.
