Have skimmed through, but can't see anything about minimum capacities.
Dont agree with the OP and i think championship football would raise the whole profile of the club. The appointment of garner fits in with the wael dream of a great academy and a pass and move on the deck football team. In many ways the coventry team has been built on a modest budget and has involved selling some of their best players but recruiting good young players. Can garner replicate that at rovers? Hope so but feel sceptical about the possibility.

I always find its amusing when people say the plug has been pulled? What logic was behind that? Apparently it was pulled by Geoff Dunford in nearly season, personally I think that rubbish. Getting promoted would increase value of club and make it more attractive to sell.
Anyway an unconnected visual table below of average premiership wages over the years:
Surely every football clubs ambition is to get promoted ? otherwise whats the point of playing competitive football ?
The 'evolution not revolution' idea sounds great but the reality is that if you rely on bringing young players up through the ranks you will never get a team of them to stay as bigger richer clubs will whisk them away as soon as they show promise,going back to Larry Lloyd,Gary Mabbutt and many others this has always happened.
Obviously everyone would want a Rovers promotion. Bigger gates, higher match day revenue, more TV money, higher profile etc etc. The reality would be a one season stint and some right hammerings. The nightmare would be that Rovers overspend to try and compete and find ourselves relegated and in even more debt that we started. I agree that the very best we can hope for given current owners / stadium is to be a Rotherham or a Doncaster and yo-yo between Div 1 and the championship. The reality is that most people would be relatively happy to just be mid-table and not have to worry about relegation.
The point I am making is a simple one all contributions above cordially received. We are nowhere near secure in this division, indeed with the losses we are already stacking up it is highly questionable we are viable at all, the Al-Qadi money tree is just about reaching its point of sod this for a game of soldiers with a fickle and volatile fan base in outright turmoil let alone the archaic and frankly embarrassing facilities provided for players especially to train at with no hope of any change remotely on the horizon. What foundation does this provide for such a venture let alone the consequences of panic efforts if we got up to maintain that status many of us old gits have seen in the past that in this day and age and attitude of the FA would see the club liquidated. There is nothing in place at all in terms of a reliable plan to finance nor provide the facilities that would make a championship push and genuine effort to be competitive there and as past disasters clearly show especially of the kind the Terry Cooper era inflicted upon the club the consequences far outweigh the gains. Coughlans departure has provided a fortuitous opening to slam the brakes on, a young and ambitious naive coach has been recruited and the opportunity taken to bring about a period of ‘ realignment’ rather than the terrifying prospect to them of a bigger financial black hole and increased demand for the sort of facilities rightly expected for the National League let alone a ‘ big club’ in our position.
