Not true…… of course I am, not flying white bedsheets, but the lad in the Sixth Sense and that scary little fucker Damien Omen are enough to scare anyone. Whether ghosts are real is another discussion altogether…..
This Blog is getting worse?
Hard to argue otherwise and it wasn’t even that good to start with? Worry not though, the Ghost Reference is not irrelevant shite, it’s a seamless link to more top quality content.
2019/2020……… The Ghost Season
The League 1 clubs should finally complete the farcical self interest exercise and decide on the fate of the season. I’ve said it to death, but there’s only really 2 options, amazingly it looks like we are going to end up with option 3?
I support Sunderland, my belief is the ideal scenario is to finish the season when safe, failing that it’s null and void. My team are 2 points off automatic promotion with 8 games to play, we have a favourable run in. It looks like we will miss out on the play offs when the vote is conducted. I’m obviously going to favour playing to a conclusion, but I’m a fan and I’m only interested in my team. With this in mind it would be ridiculous for fans to decide? Well, that’s effectively what the EFL are sanctioning through giving clubs the vote? It’s like asking if you want to get in a taxi with Dec …… or go in Ants’ mini with him at the wheel and that big fat Labrador sat on your lap
It’s not Rocket Science?
Tranmere Rovers Football Club
Tranmere have really been through the mill in recent seasons – they dropped out of the league, although back to back promotions see then in League 1. Survival would be a great season for them I’d guess? They only won 5 of their first 31 games, but they have hit some form and won their last 3. Not only are they the form team, they still have to play Wimbledon who are 3 points ahead of them and destined to survive by default, (I wonder which way Wimbledon will vote?)
A Cynical view from a Big Club Fan
League 1 is pretty depressing, Sunderland and Ipswich are in League 1 because they deserve to be, having finished in a relegation spot upon completion of a full Championship season. Sunderland and ipswich are the 2 best supported teams in L1, they travel in the biggest numbers, local rivalries aside for most clubs these are their biggest games. Whilst being in L1 is not the preferred option for ipswich and Sunderland – their presence is favourable for most of the other teams? Let’s pick a random mid table team….. Blackpool for example….
Blackpool vs Ipswich & Sunderland, (circa 8000 combined visiting fans), and 2 big away days at decent stadiums?
Blackpool vs Wycombe and Oxford, (circa 750 combined visiting fans) and 2 away days in front of 6’000 crowds at small grounds in the middle of nowhere?
