Only club I think in the Champ that has a remote chance of becoming a long term top flight club is Pirates. Ealing are likely to have a few years in the prem but they don’t have a sustainable long term business model. Mike Gooley won’t be around forever and the unlimited pool of money will eventually be gone. Not sure whether this will be in 5/10/15 years but Ealing will eventually mean revert to being a mid table championship or Nat 1 side.

The only real problem with this gloomy scenario is if the club go bust and collaterally damage others. If Ealing, Pirates, Cov or Donny buy their ticket to the prem and don't sustain it in the long term is it really a problem if they then slip down the pyramid provided they don't damage other clubs collaterally? It seems crazy to handicap clubs which gain promotion by making them build an unsuitable stadium at huge cost which they don't need and would only fill once in a blue moon. IMO if Pirates or indeed any other club win the Championship they deserve their chance to play in the prem even if it only lasts for a single season. 
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.
