I think the days when a club could easily drop from league 2 to national league down through semipro seem to be over. It seems like league 2 teams take on debt trying for promotion or league 1 teams take on debt trying to avoid relegation and then the finances just crumble when things go wrong

Confirmed: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/10/08/ben-olsen-fired/

The last active link to United's great days...unfortunately, nostalgia doesn't win MLS Cups.

Interesting to see Everton and Aston Villa atop the Premiere League table.
