Meanwhile, those much further down the food chain get made redundant, the normal day to day people scraping hand to mouth with families to feed, our better players get sold off for nothing near what they are worth.
Great points DL.
I've left this one as in the world of Premier League football these are two of the most important aspects IMO.
Last night I posted that I had accepted, was even prepared to embrace 'relegation' and just take the following events for what they were.
But, having 'slept on it' I'm pretty much in agreement with you.
It's not being in the top division for it's own sake, most of us have been up and down with the club ever since we fell into its embrace, from a purely football point of view, it matters not. In fact, as others have argued, it will be a more familiar and likeable experience for many.
The difference is the stadium, the bloody stadium. The prospect of a competitive existence in the lower leagues where we were from where we are now would be delicious, and if relegation were to lead to that then fantastic, but it won't I fear, certainly not for our generation and possibly the next.
I don't see the owners going anywhere soon so bollox to those bastads,
So, whereas I have for my own peace of mind, if you like, accepted relegation, I do still care about it.
