    Secondly, although you can’t afford to go watching the tics away for family reasons, you would manage to get out of the house for the extra 4 games we would play in the championship?

    Err and 4 homes would equate to one visit to London SUNSHINE !! ;)

    and I presume be included in your season ticket price.

    I know what you mean lowey, there appears to be a presence of senility on here. How else could you explain some of these thickets?

    Probably debated this for the last nine years but here goes.

    I only go to home games due to family and cost (cue sudworth) so over the last 9 years have seen us win on average 5 times a year. Is this really what I want from a saturday afternoon?

    Relegation would see us more competitive and get me out the house 4 more times and have that good feeling on a Saturday night more often.

    I am honestly now bored with losing and would like to watch something different, I know there’s no guarantee and we could well free fall. However think I say this every year then we beat utd and I say that one game makes the other 18 shite worth it.

    My tin hats on but relegation I welcome not fear.

    Yes get your tin hat on you fekin band waggoner. We need support through thick and thin not just when we are doing well. Stay at home my friend and we’ll see you again if we stay up. Thanks for your support but it would have been good to see us through the bad times. goodpost[/quote]

    Bleedin eck ace not heard that saying for ages. :cheer:

    I just wish some fans would get a sense of reality into their lives.

    When the going gets tough the soft shytes moan like fek. They will be the same fans who go missing at the end of the season if we stay up once again.
    It’s the easiest thing in the world to support a winning team but not quite as easy to support a struggling one. That’s what makes this game of football the best and most followed sport in the universe. It’s also what sorts out the proper fans from the fickle ones. :whistle:

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    Bloody hell fat fan your still missing the point I will have one last go then I give up.

    I have watched them for over 30 years I will be watching them next year but I would just prefer to enjoy a bit more success if that has to be in a lower division on a more level playing field then so be it.

    the battle is not over and other clubs seem to have had a some good runs but Wigan so far haven’t.We seem to have an uncanny knack of getting into the groove at precisely the right time e with our current manager and I think you will find after this result with City clubs will take you very seriously and results may be just that bit harder to come by from now on.
    I seem to remember Blackburn sneaked six points clear last season then just fell away as they all thought they were safe on 28 points.
    Another factor in this turgid league is that once clubs hit around 30 points at this state they start to coast so even some of those clubs can get dragged into it.
    Saints are a fairly big club as they should be in what is basically a non football part of the country so they should stay up but expect a trickier ride from here on in!

    Agree with this – think Saints have benefitted from teams not really showing up against us and there’s no doubt that the high pressure game has it’s own risks which will be exposed at some point. From my perspective it’s nice to see but still very early days and don’t think many saints fans would consider us out of the scrap just yet. I was just commenting on whether relegation is such a bad thing though and I don’t really think it is – financially of course it is but I’d rather look at a league table than a balance sheet and besides it’s not as if the riches of the prem filter down to the fans.

    Sure chairmen, players, managers, pundits etc can bang on about the importance of being and staying in the top division but for fans of “smaller” clubs I think that we get more entertainment, value for money and enjoyment from the lower leagues.

    there is the other crucial factor which is that of the no hoping underdog which we have played out wonderfully since Martinez arrived.That is why saints and Reading have nicked points because nobody gave them a prayer however that mantle has now shifted to QPR and Wigan so where as we have been hit with more respect this term as to some extent have QPR that should start to wane a bit now and I think results will start to improve a bit from now on.This always happens Because the league is so poor that most teams pack up when they hit 30 odd points particularly the bottom half of the table.
    We are also statistically due a win and I feel we will kick start the season at Reading as they will be favourites and they wil be expected to record a Home win.
    Villa have Arsenal away next up so we could move out of the bottom three if we get the away win at Reading.As a club we have to remain positive and we are in a far better position than we think to fight another relegation battle having experienced this in the past.

    Give up is the best option Lowey.
    Personally I’m not so sure dropping down a league will make much difference. You’ve only got to look at our results against lower opposition over the years Bob has been in charge and it aint good. Until Bob changes his style of footy to a more positive way then we won’t score many goals in any game.

    Do I want us to be relegated? No
    Would I be that bothered if we were? No

    They are actually very different questions.

    It’s not as though we are talking about playing Barnet and Hartlepool and Bury again. We’re talking about Derby and Forest and Leeds and Birmingham and Burnley and Blackpool and so on and so on…….

    It’s a good league. I don’t WANT us to go there, and actually I don’t think we will (this year), but if it is to be then no worries.

    I agree the league below is one we fought like hell to get to for six seasons so what’s the problem?
    I agree with you though I dont think we will as we are now backs to the wall and usually come out fighting when we are deep in the sh/t like now.
    lots of twists and turns to come and if anyone thinks Villa have turned the corner after that rubbish game today needs to think again.
    glass half full!

    When we were in the Third Division (whatever it was called then) I remember distinctly hoping that we could establish ourselves as an established Division Two team, with maybe the odd foray into the top division.

    We have more than accomplished that.

    Once more – let me be clear – I do not WANT us to be relegated. Surely no real fan wants to see their team viewed as failing. But if we do I will still be getting a solid 8 hours sleep at night.

    My sentiments exactly !

    And I’ll still be turning up whatever happens.

    Make that 4 of us goodpost . I’ll still be travelling over from Ireland no matter what division we are in. My first game was a 2-1 win (haworth, liddel) against Northampton (2000) and I had the same feel good factor that Saturday night as I had when I saw us beat Stoke 2-0 last season. Anyone remember that Northampton game? I actually brought my missus to it, about 5,000 attendance and game was held up for aboout 10 mins (Northampton fans had some argy bargy with the stewards), and a cracking winner from Andy Liddel.
