So two and a half years on since the arrogantly naive and stupid Phlegms rolled into town. And despite what these deluded idiots might try and say, because obviously in their minds anyone who actually understands and loves football (unlike them) is a complete imbecile, we have actually regressed since they took the helm.
They took over a mid table modest Championship side, who were struggling a touch, partly due to a lack of pre season player investment from the old regime, partly from the fact the awful pitch saw them having played FIVE games left than the rest of the division. (A potential fifteen points).
Attendances were averaging 16-18,000 real supporters actually in attendance.
Now, through their own folly and blind and deaf stupidity and pride, they have a third tier club with less than 10,000 (and dropping) supporters turning up to home games. Those that are still attending the Valley are mainly doing so to vocalise their upmost disgust and contempt for this regime. Their reputation amongst football supporters in large and the media is that of a dreadful laughing stock of a board running a much loved club into the ground needlessly.
What really sums up the utter inept, ignorance and stupidity of this bunch of wankers is the statement that was made when they took over that there were network players that could do as good a job as those stalwarts who were part of that spirited bunch who set League One alight and finished 9th in their first season in The Championship.
Let's take a quick look to make a point.
Dale Stephens (scored the equaliser yesterday against Middlesbrough for Brighton) - hopefully playing for Albion in the PL next term.
Yann Kermogant - promoted to the top flight with Bournemouth, played in the top flight at Bournemouth, will be playing for play off hopefuls Reading in The Championship next season.
Michael Morrison - came close to the play offs this term with Brum. Described by Gary Rowett as his best signing so far as a football manager.
Ben Hamer - unfortunately was kept out of the Leicester City side, only playing 8 games, due to the form of Kasper Schmecial. Oh and they won the Premier League as well, so not all that shameful for him.
I only get a few hundred read my posts on average as general, so am a small scale blogger in the grand scheme of things.
However, just on the odd chance that 2% of my readership are part of strapix, or even Kat or Roly or Tony or Dick Murray. FUCK OFF YOU CLULESS TWATS! WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO MY GREAT CLUB IS NOTHING SHORT OF CRIMINAL. MUGS! GO BUY YOURSELVES A COPY OF CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER AND LEAVE THE REAL THING TO PROFESSIONALS.
I won't be renewing (after 40 odd years of members of my family attending home games) until this lot are gone. I will join protests but it'll either be Welling United or Dartford that will be seeing my money come August. I may even get a decent pint and a proper pie.
You horrible, selfish, clueless wankers.
On a lighter note, wasn't the weather great today? Enjoy the summer. Roland and his lying lackeys out.
