Someone explain to me again why we need £45 match tickets and massive wages?

 

💯. I've been reading through interviews and programmes from the time recently. Another thing also stood out - what an impressive figure Howard Wilkinson was. Would love someone even now with his clarity of thought, modern ideas and desire to succeed.

I'd still pick the 90s...early to middle ish.....then it all turned rubbish 

 

 

The football was better in the early 90's but altogether for me (being aged 11-21) the Eighties were better. 

Being able to stand up alone both at Hillsborough with occasional huge crowds  over 40k and also some 10k plus away followings made the 80s better.

GET OUT

 

AND HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME

I saw TF score two at Hillsborough when he was 16. To see him play for us was a privilege, even 21 years later.

Saw my 1st game in '85 so that time & team will always be special to me,

 

Lyons 

Marwood 

Varadi 

Chapman

Megson

Shelton

Hodge

 

But the 90's was another level.

 

Atkinsons and Francis teams were a joy to watch.

Chansiri got us to a playoff final - we should knight him then?

 

lol

 

Eh?

 

Never suggested for one minute that Francis should be knighted.

 

Can't seem to recall Chansiri on the touchline or taking training sessions.

Nothing, aside from genocide, poverty and U2 is worse than football nostalgia , and we are the worst of any club at it .

 

We always wonder why we can’t attract new fans and big crowds. It is simply as most of our fans always drone on about the past.  Liam Palmer , poo , he isn’t Graham Hyde. Wasn’t it so much better in my day . This isn’t real football, get it long.

 

Football is still brilliant. We are still brilliant.
