To be fair, did he say he expected 10k fans a week? all he is saying is there was an expectation that they would at least try to get fans in to stadiums in some capacity from October, even if its a few limited capacity games until restrictions were tightened again (especially with it being deemed as a fairly low risk in terms of spreading the virus if done correctly).
The difference now is that it is completely off the table and clubs now have all the income theyre gonna get for the season, even for the best ran clubs that will have had some kind of effect on their plans
What do you actually know though? It's not a dig if it sounds like that. Not a lot of people know much about the clubs finances in the first place and it's just a matter of days ago where you said you expect half the championship to go bust iirc. I just think that you are buying too much into the doom and gloom and I stand by my statement that I don't think we will see even 12 clubs across the Championship, L1 and L2 combined go bust. I very much doubt that our entire survival hope was based on spectators gradually being allowed back in from october and no new restrictions being imposed. If that was the breaking point then there is no way we would have spent money on players this summer and we would have been selling players instead.
