The Manchester/Lancashire/Liverpool area is crammed full of storied football clubs.  This map shows a generalized kit design of the football clubs of this region, proportionally sized to reflect their 2006-07 average attendance. [Clubs shown on the map are listed below, by average attendance, in numerical order within the context of all 92 clubs in the English Football League (2006-07 Season).] 

1. Manchester United: 75,826 average attendance.   4. Liverpool: 43,561.   6. Manchester City: 39,997.   7. Everton: 36,739.   19. Bolton Wanderers: 23,606.   26. Blackburn Rovers: 21,275.   33. Wigan Athletic: 18,159.   38. Preston North End: 14,430.   44. Burnley: 11,956.   54. Tranmere Rovers: 6,930.   55. Blackpool: 6,877.   56. Oldham Athletic: 6,334.   72. Stockport County: 5,514.   85. Rochdale: 2,898.   87. Bury: 2,588.   91. Accrington Stanley: 2,260.               

For this season (2007-08), another club would be added to the map.  Morecambe FC (“the Shrimps”) were promoted to the 4th Division (League Two), last spring.  {Wikipedia profile, here.}   {kit(tens), here}    It’s their first-ever season in the League.  I indicated where Morecambe is, on the map.  It’s the dot north of Blackpool.  Morecambe’s average gate this season, so far,  is 3,386.  If they keep up their form (8-6-5: 30 pts.), they’ll stay up.  Go Shrimps !
