Another Football Club dies only to be reborn by its only real shareholders

So a modern, enlightened vision for a football club is taking shape in the ruins of the old, in which clubs are just companies, up for sale to just about anyone. The wider lessons of Chester City's gruesome demise should be heeded across football...
After years of supporters' loyalty being taken for granted, the end for the Chester regime arrived because the fans finally became mad as hell, and then decided they were not going to take it any more.
As I wrote recently, this will continue as long as football exists. Love for the Game, passion for your local team will always mean when the scumbag speculators and shady businessmen walk away, the only real shareholders will bring it back to life.
