from any league. in an ideal preemiership world:
epl: newcastle, bolton, fulham
Pushing the remaining 20 from the lower reaches of League 2 into the Premiership. There is no clause in Sky's contract, so Andy Gray and Richard Keys will have to do a Super Sunday from places like Accrington Stanley and Port Vale.
i'd also love to see this
'We've got a great double bill of premier league football today, as former Lincoln boss Keith Alexander takes his new team Macclesfield to Sincil Bank - can Simon Yeo score against his old team and lift Macc into the Top 4? Firstly though, we've got a crucial game in the title race here at Spotland as newly-promoted Histon are the visitors. Can the tiny Cambridgeshire side become the first village team to win a trophy since Forest Green's monumental FA Cup Final victory over Shepshed Dynamo last season? All the action, with analysis from Jamie Redknapp and That Spanish Bloke, after the break...'
AND IT'S LIVE!
I would love to see this.
I saw the highlights of Macclesfield vs Everton the other day - it was like the Lincoln of old. Martin Gritton, Nat "Wondergoal" Brown, Paul Morgan and Simon Yeo all playing.
Nevermind. I'm sure I'll get over it.
I spotted the team out on the sauce in town, and for some reason decided to go and get their autographs. I went around the whole squad, spoke to Bimmo and Barry Richardson, got scribbles from everyone from Gavin Gordon to Paul Smith. Unfortunately, while talking to this group of 15 or so chaps, I completely missed out Paul Morgan. As I sloped away back up the stairs in the boozer, the sound of the whole team laughing at a crestfallen Paul Morgan rang around the pub. He shot me a glance of pure hate. Good times.
an amazing story. Poor lad. So many names there I'd forgotten too.
Gritton's doing well though, Brown missed an absolute sitter to put us in the lead :(
I hope I live to see Arsenal go down at some point too.
I hope you die
I will at some point die
Hurry up though
You used to be scathing
Also, I started thinking, what if DK died this week, and someone made an 'oh noes' thread and then I posted a link to that post and wrote LOL, that would make me look bad :(
you don't come across excellently anyway.
I do believe us and Everton are the only two teams to never get relegated from the top flight, or something like that
Stupid answers like Hull don't count
I always find it odd looking at how few teams have been constants in the Premier League
Arsenal controversially rejoined the First Division in 1919 despite only finishing fifth in 1914–15, the last season of competitive football before the First World War had intervened. The First Division was being expanded from 20 teams to 22, and the two new entrants were elected at an AGM of the Football League. One of the extra places was given to Chelsea, who had finished 19th in the First Division and thus had been already relegated. The other spot could have gone to 20th-placed Tottenham Hotspur (also relegated), or to Barnsley or Wolves, who had finished third and fourth in the Second Division respectively.
Instead, the League decided instead to promote fifth-placed Arsenal, for reasons of history over merit; Norris argued that Arsenal be promoted for their "long service to league football", having been the first League club from the South. The League board agreed; they voted eighteen votes to eight to promote Arsenal ahead of their local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, which has fuelled the long-standing enmity between the two clubs. It has been alleged that this was due to backroom deals or even outright bribery by Sir Henry Norris, colluding with his friend John McKenna, chairman of Liverpool and the Football League, who recommended Arsenal's promotion to the AGM.
No conclusive proof of wrongdoing has ever come to light, though other aspects of Norris's financial dealings unrelated to the promotion controversy have fuelled speculation on the matter; Norris resigned as chairman and left the club in 1929, having been found guilty by the Football Association of financial irregularities; he was found to have misused his expenses account, and to have pocketed the proceeds of the sale of the Arsenal team bus. Regardless of the circumstances of their promotion in 1919, Arsenal have remained in the top division since then, and as a result hold the English record for the longest unbroken stretch of top-flight football.
such a decision would create now?
about due again.
I would like Spurs relegated three seasons in a row.
Failing one of those two, any team that Harry Redknapp is managing at the time. But it won't be his fault though, of course, and he'll swiftly take a job at their arch rivals, claiming that they'd always been his club, deep down
would be the ultimate.
Spurs and Newcastle as well. Some teams I hate will most likely go down this year anyway, so it's all good.
Maybe Everton...and Portsmouth (just confirm their joke club status)...
More an issue of it being a club at which seemingly everyone is a cunt
"best fans in the world"
Ah yeah, the type of fans that turn on the manager as soon as it goes pear shaped...
a lot of newcastle fans were full of it when I was in Leeds. Not all of them granted, but enough.
i never know
and Liverpool would be nice
The others are self explanatory.
and two others
apurs and liverpool are the most hated teams in the world?
Just liverpool, it would be amazing.
It is a shame.
what we've done. Our fans aren't ALL cunts, you can't ALL hate Harry Redknapp, and quite frankly who would not love Tom Huddlestone?
then over time they mistake this glee for hatred. I am victim and perpetrator.
he just falls over due to his high centre of balance
but seeing as players dont get booked for diving very often, i'd guess that's around twice?
it surprised me, but i guess it's more bad luck/the fact that he's rubbish at it
we can but dream
