    The Undeniable Truth knows more than me.

    I hate that we are relegated. I hate that I have to even make this thread. What a disaster of a season it’s been.

    Thank goodness I’ve been swamped with work for most of it. That’s been the only positive, well that, and having a third son.

    What I hate more about this season is how I have lost total interest in anything about this club.
    I’ve hated previous owners, disliked previous managers, despised certain players, disagreed with recruitment policy before…but never felt this way about all four in the same season

    I bet The Undeniable Truth at the start of the season we would finish 15th or higher. Whoever lost, me in this case, had to post that the other person knew more than them and make it their signature for next season.

    Yeah I’ve felt the same. Normally I would watch every game, the saturdays that I’ve been able to, I’ve gone out with the wife and kids, checked the scores at FT, texted my brother how much I hate Duxbury and how desperate I am to see Hodgson get fired.

    no doubt we will sell Sissoko, King, Sarr, Dennis, and Kamara in the summer. The problem is, no-one wants to work under Gino and Scott. They weren’t even at the game today. I seriously hope that’s because Gino was firing Duxbury.

    Completely agree. What makes me even more angry is that Watford was the think I did with my kids. Now none of us care or want to go.

    100% . . As mentioned in other threads we stopped going after the Brighton game (checked out mentally after Nowrich!) and haven't bothered renewing for next season (first time we won't have had season ticket in over a decade). I'm just so apathetic to the whole thing, I feel genuine sadness that it's got like this.
    Perhaps it's an age thing (I see Ucko et al all talking about the best "away sesh") but honestly what is there to like any more about the club? People talk about all the things they do outside of the club in the community but, call me a cynic, most of this appears to be virtue signalling at best and highly devisive at worst. And really (appreciate this comes across very self centered) I just couldn't care less! What I care about is what happens on the pitch and its just an absolute shambles

    WillisWasTheWorst Its making less grammar mistake's thats important

    I also only really care about what the first team does on the pitch, but I do believe the community work the club does is for genuinely good reasons.
    I knew this team didn’t have the character to fight to stay up from the Palace home game. Since then I have been to no further away games and I missed the home games against Arsenal and Leeds through illness, but it didn’t bother me in the slightest and I never thought I would say that.

  14. Haha, I’d forgotten all about that ! Well played in fessing up. Relegated as I expected but I have to say we have achieved that relegation in a far more spectacular way than I envisaged. What a pile of brown stuff we have been, top to bottom, front to back. Love the way you mention the birth of your third son only as a passing consolation! A true fan !! Good to have you back.

    Firstly, welcome back Marko - even though we've not always agreed on things you've been one of the more decent and beneficial posters on here, and your staying true to your word in this way has underlined that. Also, congrats on the kid.

    A few quick things about King - supposedly he has a relegation release clause from his contract, so we won't need/be able to sell him.

    Also, are you still of the opinion that: " I would much rather King be our starting striker than Toney" in the Prem?

    On another tangent, Santos Borre seems to have hit form for Frankfurt recently...

    My word is my word. I seriously believed that we would stay up comfortably. I still think we should have/of with the squad we have quite frankly. A decent manager keeps us up, is my personal belief.

    It’s been horrendous. Nothing but arrogance from top to bottom. When 99% of the fanbase is telling you what to do and are correct in saying so, but you do the opposite, there’s a problem. Genuinely the worst relegation we’ve ever suffered in the sense of the players trying and fighting.

    Just looking forward to Wednesday when Hodgson is going to get dogs abuse and deservedly so.

    Thanks mate.

    Haha footballing wise no, personally yes. Toney is a massive idiot. What he has publicly said about Brentford, his own club, is a train wreck. Imagine him being here with how we run the club, and what he would publicly say.

    Well Markoa$ congratulations on your third born. Hopefully by the time they can appreciate football the club will be in a better place minus the two idiots and their baggage.

    This has to be one of the worst seasons in the club's history. It's all well and good being outclassed but playing with fire and determination but we even haven't had that. And I think a half decent coach with a few more genuine professionals and less layabouts who can be bothered only when they want to could have made a decent fist of staying up. Just a few results here and there and we would be above the relegation zone or still in the fight.

    That blame with the lack of a decent coach and the right mental make up of players is directly to those two interfering know-it-all busybodies.

    Before the local authorities in Rio de Janeiro acknowledged the existence of some favelas, the drug gangs there did way more for their communities than anyone else. But it didnt change the fact that they were/are ruthless killers dealing in addiction and death.
