  1. Some of the best awaydays ever have been at Mansfield. Port Vale, not so much, horrible place.
  2. Probably. I think we also do the opposite, thinking some of our players are better than they actually are. Teams with unknown players on a fraction of our wages have regularly beaten us over the last 20 years. We have signed "names" who have turned out to be injury prone and/or past it.
  3. What he said . Also, although I haven't checked we've probably spent longer in the top 2 divisions than them.
  4. If Middlesbrough had spent the last 22 years in our position their average crowd would be half what ours has been. Their recent history is better than ours due to HUGE investment but overall we are a bigger club.
  5. Strange that 20 odd years ago Stockport and Bury were a division above Man City. Haven't checked but I think that's right. The same season Manchester Citys Derby was against Macclesfield Town.
  6. Sunderland were definitely fitter than us. First to every ball .
  7. Good point, but the size of those clubs mean their fans don't aspire to those things. The size, ground, history and fanbase here means we at least should be competing at the highest level. I still maintain we are the best fans in the country.
  8. WeWycombe have an excuse for cheating though. They are a tiny club with poor players, their only chance is cheating. Sunderland are a big club with some very good players. A bit like Leeds in the sixties, they don't need to use those tactics. They do it because they get away with it. I can never wish Alex Neil well.
  9. Drives me mad. Easy to stop, just apply the rules.
  10. This is really stupid but that post actually brought a tear to my eye. Sorry.
  11. Almost exactly how I feel. Since 1966 I've had about 8 decent seasons and won one trophy. Never been Champions of any league. Our fans are the best in the country and deserve so much better.
  12. We have been worse than Sunderland and Ipswich for far longer and are surrounded by other clubs, not just United. I think our prices are higher too . We are the best fans in the British Isles.
  13. I think you mean cheat don't you. His Preston team were an abomination and a disgrace to football
  14. Great photo . It was rare in those days for anyone to take a camera in. I did it a couple of times and I even took my Afga cine camera once. I love seeing non press photos , have you anymore?
