Acceptance

Recommended Posts

After today''s result, I was obviously gutted.  But having sat here and reflected on our season, I''ve finally accepted that we will be relegated.  Obviously I will continue to support the lads, and hope that we can survive, but for me accepting it now will make it a lot easier when/if it actually happens.  So I''m sitting here a lot happier than I''ve been over the past few weeks because in my opinion our future has been decided now.I just want to make a point.  Having had the pleasure of attending the University of Leicester over the past 3 years, and having worked at LCFC, I have witnessed League One football.  Quite simply we do not want to be there.  The quality of football is terrible, the quality of the players is terrible, everything is literally terrible.  Leicester did well after they struggled to adapt at the start of the season, but still managed to force results even during that time.  Don''t think that we will ''do a Leicester'' because they have pretty much kept the squad they had last season, a squad which in my opinion was too good to go down anyway.  It won''t be the same for us.That league is dire, it is as simple as that.

BUMP in case any of you missed this, I just want to let those who are not in the know how terrible League One actually is.

I think we all know how ''''different'''' league one will be to what we have now, sadly we can harp on about it until the cows come home, but nothing will change our situation.

I realise the point of this board is to post personal opinions, but it''s a pity that posts like the OP cannot be banned by the mods until the end of the season (rather like opinion polls are banned prior to a general election). Yes we can be relegated but I still believe we will escape and will carry on believing until it is settled one way or another. Players may not read this board ( I think some do) but someone who knows someone most certainly does. Despondency is contagious. We need fans with the fighting spirit and finishing quality of Lee - not the defeatism and indifference shown by certain players at Fulham.

My point was to say that just talking about it - will not make relegation less likely but might make it more likely. You''re not the only Dismal Jimmy on here - but we would have all summer to ponder the mess of relegation - if it comes to that, so why not wait until that time? I still think and hope you will have a long wait though - because we can and should stay up!
