Well if they believe there will be a younger generation of fans if we carry on the way we're going they are even more out of touch than even I thought.Brookbonds73 wrote:Like it's already been said, us of a certain age didn't buy in to their bollocks. They're real aim is the younger generation of fans who'll one day gladly suck it all up and pay through the nose for the privilege of sustained mediocrity.
They are what they are I'm afraid, two bob shysters with a mouthpiece for back up.
The number of young kids going to games today is lower than it's ever been. Two main reasons imo are the ready availability of top class football on the box and, of course, the cost of travel and tickets. Most people of a certain age first caught the football bug by going to matches and developed our passion for our particular clubs by actually watching them play. That is no longer the case.
The major clubs are the ones today's kids want to watch. I live in what has always been predominantly Arsenal & Spurs territory (Welwyn Garden City) but today when Mrs W insists I accompany her to the town centre I see more Real Madrid and Barcelona shirts than I do Spurs or Arsenal ones. Because the kids can watch every game they play on the box. They don't give a monkeys about the clubs, like ours, who are there just making up the numbers. They will follow the clubs who are successful. It's just the way things are. And if the dwarf doesn't realise it he's an even bigger arsehole than I believe him to be.
Which I have to say is something of an achievement.
