Quoted from BottesfordMariner
People go on about the money they have but to break into the monopoly at the top of the league to spend money. Like no-one has ever tried to buy success before?? If an owner with deep pockets wanted to invest in your team of course you would so no wouldn't you.



No, no I wouldn't. I dislike any football club that spends beyond its means. People talk about how football has changed and how clubs are businesses. But that isn't true, they're charity cases and play things for the rich and I can't stand it and I can't bear to see lower league football fans (cognitive dissonance much?), or any football fans really being ok with it.

Football clubs are community assets and putting them in the debt of an individual or group is dangerous (familiar?).There are too many cases of chairman/consortiums being "in it for the long haul" only for them to intercourse the club over. In my ideal world all football clubs would be supporter-run, sustainably and ethically. Football is so far away from that that I pretty much don't give a shite about it anymore, Except wanting to see Town do well, as long as we try and do it properly, even if that sees us staying in the conference for an extended period.

Some will call me deluded. But I wouldn't sell out my principles even if it meant seeing Town win the Premier League.

I'm a proud Englishman and could never wan't one of our team's to lose to the foreigner's ( not even Hull City ).


Aaaargh I should agree with you on this one, but I just can't wish hull city to do well, especially this year in the Europa league. Have to say I will have a smile inside if lokeren  beat them, as I work and live surrounded by them, I don't hate them as much as I did in the 80's when there really was an intense and often fierce rivalry with hull city but something inside just can't wish them to succeed.
I have a soft spot for AFC Wimbledon because of where they have come from and their supporters.
I have a soft spot for notts forest, had this since the late seventies cloughie era.
I don't really have any dislikes outside local rivalry

Man Utd losing in Europe never gets boring.

Although them not even qualifying was even funnier.

Liverpool going out is also good as it stops all that bollocks about 'The Kop sucking the ball into the net' etc etc.

Reading the views and comments from the Bolton and Brighton fans, with regards to town and our lovely family club
Haha, their has been some right A** hole comments from some people on some club forums, but I just replied with being nice, no point losing any potential petition signatures, I dunno what Bolton fans problem is lol.  

A few Blackburn were being miserable as well... just have to keep cool lol

The Fulham fans were all nice, none had a bad word to say about Grimsby Town.

I like Woking as I live here, also have a soft spot for Palace since I've moved down South never failed to have a good conversation about football with any of their fans.  Out of England I like Bordeaux as we go there quite a bit their new stadium looks incredible.

I dislike the standard Man United aka the Tesco's of football and Tranmere the way they celebrated when we were relegated at their place back in 03 I have never forgotten that.


Me and football are in a complicated relationship
