How England’s top four divisions look based on all-time average attendance since 1889 has been revealed... A decent barometer of historical club size? A decent guideline to show how teams are currently under or overperforming in the present day? Do home attendances (budget) equal success, trophies and league position over a long period of time as only seven clubs in the top two divisions for attendance are currently playing in the third or fourth tiers?

I remember looking at this table years ago and we sat something like 24th in the all time rankings.

Nearly two decades in league 2 and non league have taken their toll which is a shame, but hopefully we can look forward to a better future once we restart.

Mind you thinking about it, the table I saw could have been based on average league positions, not attendances.

I assume Salford's all time average attendance is this season (ie the whole thing is PL/FL only?)

Obviously then, there would be a number of other clubs with higher averages not on this list.
