Mansfield owl has hit the nail on the head when it comes to attendance figures. People are being priced out of football to pay inflated wages for increasingly mediocre players. This is a criticism of football in general and not Wednesday in particular (where we're still paying for the mistakes that are over 10 years old). How many clubs have gone into receivership since the advent of the premiership (which we all probably wanted at the time)? Has this sky funded mess been good for clubs, no. Has it been good for players? Well those in the top end may appear to do well, buying shiny new toys like kids at christmas whilst exhibiting behavioural standards that should have them sent to their room with no supper. Ronaldo a slave? For christsake! As for the fans, well we are increasingly forced away from the football ground and in front of the tv to catch just a glimpse of our teams. At the end of last season Wednesday dropped prices and filled the ground for one vital game. They learned nothing from this lesson it seems. As for football in general, well it's a dull three horse race (I'm feeling generous) in the snore fest that's the premiership. The same teams in the champions league (very few of whom are champions) and the championship. Well it remains a truly competetive league but have you noticed how poorly the teams relegated from the premiership do. They're forced to flog off there failed players, more often than not to those sides that took their place, just to get the wage bill down. Sorry, to rant but I had to get this off my chest. Look at Luton, look at Wrexham. How long before we start losing clubs altogether?

Rotherham, Bounremouth, and there'll be a few more. But hey, everything's fine, Richard Scudamore says so - http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2008/aug/10/premierleague1 - the blind leading the blind.

robc I totally agree. Before we used to have a turnover at the top of the top division but now we just have the same few. We used to pity the Scottish for their 2 horse race and now we are the same. It's nice to see all these fancy foreigners helping bring our standards up but we still haven't won anything with the national team so all these players have really done is shown us how to dive and they are ***** at that as well. Well done to our 2 boys for getting in the Team of the week. Hope we can have a few more in next week so I can carry on winding the piggies up especially if we were to stay top.
