Dear oh dear. Shall we start a league table and if you're in the bottom half of attendances you're not entitled to an opinion?

Besides, if you'd taken much notice before you'd know that Bristol Mariner regularly goes to home games. And if you noticed his user name you'd realise what a commitment that is.

What the fcuk does that mean?!


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I’ve never understood why some fans of clubs like Town are so obsessed that they go to more games than others. There is a multitude of reasons why somebody might not be able to go to every single game home and away. It seems obvious to me why someone who has chosen the name ‘Bristol Mariner’ might not be able to get to more than half a dozen or so in a season.

Back to the Footballing Twit Of The Season..

I'd like to jointly nominate the FA and the EFL. The governance of our game is at an all time low. All that matters io them is maximising revenue from TV deals, which is fine, but what a mess they make of distributing that income.

Premier League clubs signing back up full backs for the price of a new stadium at struggling lower league clubs, which if built could set those clubs up for a century or more. Meanwhile the Premier League reserve full backs get moved on a year later for a 15 mill loss because it's chicken feed to those gorging at the top table.

The continued turning of a blind eye to the top clubs hoarding all the young talent who can't even get a game in their reserves or development teams.

They've turned a blind eye to a country buying the Premier League and bending the FFP rules.

The farcical situation where teams relegated from the Premier League get parachute payments of 60 mill when the teams they'll be competing with in the Championship only receive 6 mil which provokes them into overspending to try and get to the promised land. Again, many clubs like Wolves, Villa, Derby and Bournemouth have got away with this but then they pick on Birmingham and let the Bolton, Charlton, Blackpool and Orient sagas go on for years.

And introduce an imperfect VAR system which applies to some games but not others in the same competition.

The continued defence of poor refereeing decisions by FA panels.

The 250k per Premier League club pay off for Scudamore. EFL and FA.. "no comment".

Some bizarre decisions which punish some players and clubs while other clubs and players get off scott free for similar offences with laughable reasoning.

Checkatrade continues regardless of what the fans want.

There's plenty more to write, but the main reason for my vote is the ever growing gulf between the haves and the have nots and no one is doing anything about it at either the FA or the EFL because they're too scared of the Premier League and just act like beggars gratefully receiving any scraps thrown their way while totally mismanaging their day jobs...

He might want to become bosom buddies mate



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
