Premiership? You can stick it.


Arsenal have been knocked out of the FA Cup, Wenger is again seen as an idiot, despite building foundations of a major-lasting legacy.

Chelsea fansseem to hate Benitez, subjecting him to huge abuse every game. See my other blog.

Manchester City almost seem to demand trophies, based on money spent.

Well, I support Crystal Palace, a team with well-documented ups and downs over the past five.. No ten.. No twenty… years.

I have enjoyed the ups and downs, the promotion to the Premier League, the relegation scraps, the moments from being closed down. Since 2005 we have been in the Championship, and it has all been exciting. Especially this season with Holloway coming in, losing Freedman long-term will turn out to be a great move.

Don’t get me wrongI would love to sneak second place from under Hull’s nose this season, or win the play-offs and go up to the Premier League. Yes.

However, Arsenal fans are slaughtering Wenger. Chelsea fans are publicly abusing Benitez. Manchester City fans seem to just expect a trophy due to their capital.

It is at time like these when I am quite glad that I support what would probably be classed as obscurely (due to it not being a club in the top-four) a Championship team.

I have gotten to the stage where I want Stoke, West Brom and Everton – and the teams that have to skilfully work their way up the Premier League, on a shoe-string budget to win every week. Just to add some competitive edge into the league.

Keep up the good work Football League, the real fans love you for it.
