end of an era
I bet N'Dombele and GLC are wondering what the fuck they've joined

Agree, the whole point of this thing is to enjoy ourselves, I mean we are not Spurs fans because we have been serial winners over the years, and there can’t be many on this forum who have seen the last title win in the flesh.....I honestly feel that there has been very little to cheer about and some of the performances have been so turd that it’s killing the atmosphere. Last season Palace, Waste Ham & Everton were awful games. Ajax was flat and this year, Villa & yesterday were pathetic. That’s on average going to be about £300 paid to watch absolute dog shit. I don’t feel like a sing song.
I caught the bug in the early 80's (43 yo), so I've known better days and I've also known far worse.Thank you. Do I sense you have been in this position yourself?
I've been a fan since I was 6. I'm 63 now....When I started going, I used to stand behind the goal keeper, Bill Brown. Peter Baker, Ron Henry, etc etc....the great Greavsie years..the Hoddle years...Perryman et al..years before the start of football related violence. The game has changed so much, it's almost unrecognisable. Did you know that when Spurs were winning trophies in the 60's, Cliff Jones made his living from a butcher's shop on Tottenham High St?
I appreciate your kind words and the time you take to have written them Much appreciated. You treat me better than my scrub nurses do.....and they both support Woolwich. So I got it in the neck today as you can imagine. If we don't produce something next week, I'm not going in to work!!!!
Said it last week after City when our fans were making up songs about VAR and singing it’s praises that we will be on the wrong end of it soon enough, and lock up your kids if Liverpool ever get a bad taste of it, well a week later here we are....That's as good as admitting he didn't see it; in which case surely VAR can over-rule at that point.....
This clear & obvious biz is convoluted bollocks!
I'm not raging over it either way... I mocked City knowing full well we'd be ruing a similar situation before too long... Just seems like after all the debate over 'shall we or shan't we VAR?', we're really no further forward save for a few hairline offside calls.Said it last week after City when our fans were making up songs about VAR and singing it’s praises that we will be on the wrong end of it soon enough, and lock up your kids if Liverpool ever get a bad taste of it, well a week later here we are....
The thing sucks, it has always sucked and it will always suck!!
Why does ArcspacE disagree with whatever you say?I caught the bug in the early 80's (43 yo), so I've known better days and I've also known far worse.
I experienced my own transition/watershed in that I got priced out of the stands as a teenager thanks to the advent of the PL so I have no love for modern football and how things had changed... I reckon this probably plays a telling part in why I take a large amount of pride from the way we haven't bought our progress like Oily City or Chavski have... It's tough to keep your chin up with such shit going on around us, but things like unexpected title challenges and reaching the CL final give me faith that the glory days are terminally out of reach.
Does it to me as wellWhy does ArcspacE disagree with whatever you say?
