It’s a great story worth celebrating. I hope the model they’ve got isn’t wrecked by the pandemic.
I could be wrong but I wonder if they’re actually better set up to survive. Ask yourself this: if you had an actual stake in the club, would you consider chipping in to help it through the bad times? I think I’d be much more likely to do so.
I was reading elsewhere that Exeter are doing well because their outstanding youth academy has seen them receive some big transfer fees, including a chunky sell-on for the striker Brentford sold to Villa (Watkins?). Sure, some of that is lucky timing but it comes from doing things the right way.
