  1. totally agree Brentford deserve to go up, so do West Brom...
  2. Yep it doesn't bode well for next season. Losing takes it's toll , whoever is playing for you... I think these last games are important for the morale ... lose all of them and I don't think we'll be settling in easily in the Championsip next season! A difficult league without the effects of an eleven game losing streak ...
  3. I've been a supporter since 1986 and it's been one of the poorest seasons I have seen ...along with for example the relegation season in 2009 to league one. We have looked unworthy of a place in the PL and it has been embarrassing at times... I'm sorry but there are not a lot of positives to be taken imho
  4. that's an important part of the discussion going on and on and on... Some appear to be convinced there is a mystery buyer w8ing in the wings ... other's conservatively hold on to the model that's in place and that should not be altered! I've come to terms with the relegation , but I am still reeling about the difference between ourselves and clubs I used to know as comparable , I mean in size ... The Leicesters , the Sheffield United's , Crystal Palace, So'ton etc... and the difference is mainly money to spend... Our owners don't have it , but I don't hate them for it... Yet I hope one day someone comes in with some £££ , because otherwise what's the point of even getting promoted? I was still celebrating the promotion , when we started getting beaten week in week out , so to speak...
  5. This is a good point! I remember us winning away to Liverpool in 1988 , my first visit to Anfield... those are the days I remember being a supporter of NCFC in a game that wasn't dominated by the big money and the television coverage! A top reason to be in the top flight ... But this season proved that those days seem to be just about over, ... Yes we beat Man City ... but that's about it...
  6. This about sums it up 4 me 2 ... Won't be watching MOTD that's for sure...
  7. This is an example of what has driven me away from football , I mean what's the point of ffp? I think the sport is rotten to the core as the OP says. The richest clubs rule it , not the "authorities" like UEFA or FIFA ... Something is very wrong...
  8. This echoes how I am feeling about it , with the exception of the "selling our place" bit. It's still a sport (I think)... That's the biggest problem with football , it has become so much big business that the factor sport has become a "smaller" part... I am disgusted by all the money in it and I agree it is soul destroying and feels completely pointless going up... I used to be a very passionate football fan , but I have become a passionate City fan that doesn't really follow the PL in general any more , neither do I watch the Champions "Money" league ,where the rich just get richer... For me the sport has suffered enormously under the big business. I studied economics and understand how this has grown , but I don't like it ... especially because my club can't compete , just because of the riches that are so unfairly distributed. Championship is a great league where the money has less influence , I say less but that doesn't mean no influence!!!
  9. Zimbo would be my first reaction, although I must say the comments on Hanley and the Pukki toe injury are very valid too... Zimmermann is a giant in defense and a big unit , along with an inspiration for the team imo... Yet, the injuries are only a relatively small part of the problem...
  10. I agree with OP, it has been very apparent... Cantwell, McLean have been brushed aside ... I don't think Cantwell is slow though , he's just not strong enough (yet) . This is where I feel Sheff utd have been much "better" than us.
  11. I don't think this is a fair comparison, viewing that money really has infested football since the Chase days and this season has proved that you can't compete if you don't have the money... I am convinced that a few good signings would have made the difference , but that is another matter. The discussion about Delia has been ongoing for a few years now and I don't like to be drawn into one of the two camps. Delia has done her best for NCFC and we should respect that. In this day and age and with the resources available to NCFC , the club will never be an established PL team . But what is an established PL team? Outside of the top 7 or 8 teams, no club is established! My interest in football has deteriorated since the coin has become the ruler of the sport . I passionately support NCFC as I have always done...but for the rest, I can't say I watch that many games in the PL or La Liga, Bundesliga , etc...
