My first post in absolute years but it made me chuckle:

At the Gateshead match on Wednesday the MoM was announced as John Oster.
Someone from the back of our stand shouted:
"he used to play for a BIG club" to much mirth from those around him, clearly in reference to us....

Yeah but (in my descending order of 'BIGness', but pick your own):
Sunderland
Everton
Leeds (loan)
Crystal Palace
Burnley
Reading
Barnsley (loan)
Doncaster
GRIMSBY
Barnett
Gateshead

If we're talking historically I'd put both Everton and Leeds ahead of Sunderland

On the same basis I'd say that we should be above Doncaster.

Historically and actually I'd say Everton are bigger than Sunderland. Sunderland's most famous win, in the FA Cup, was won as divisional underdogs.

I would say that it all depends upon how you define 'big' - is it crowds/support or success?
If it was success, Wimbledon (now MK Dons) would be considered a 'bigger' club than many others but would typically be called a 'small' club, even by us.
I went with my perception of crowd sizes (not least because if you go by success GTFC are the smallest of that list - Barnet being top of our particular pile of poo and Gateshead going further in the play-offs than us last season) and Sunderland usually average bigger crowds than Everton. Leeds being next on the list and so on. The only one I looked up was Doncaster and, sorry to say, on my assessment based purely on crowds when in the championship and nothing more scientific than that, they are 'bigger' than us (I look forward to testing the theory when we are back in the championship!)

I think, on reflection, I will have a cry rather than a chuckle

To be fair he ran the show on Wednesday - looked like a games teacher against 5 year olds - always had loads of time on the ball and making space for himself.... ended the game with a whiter shirt than he started with while everyone else was covered in mud

What constitutes a 'big club' is always open to debate; but I agree with Les's assessment.
Also, don't forget Donny nearly went out of business not that long ago, and were a nonleague club too.
