When referring to the history of football only talking about the premier league era...pretty sure football started before the premier league...

And goalkeepers who kick the ball from hand when they may be ever so slightly over the line.  Ineveitably it goes straight through to the other keeper anyway.

A certain Mr Wesley Foderingham has a habit of doing this!

The transient nature of the side. Can't build an affinity towards the players so much. Shaun Taylor, Paul Bodin, Martin Ling, Fraser Digby, Fitzroy Simpson, Colin Calderwood, John Gittens. We'll never be able to develop a rappore of that sort again.

Or am I wrong? Feel a bond with Ferry I suppose.

People (especially the media) who fail to acknowledge the good within the game and focus on the negatives, because it's easy. One of the All Blacks was sin-binned for intentionally stamping on the head of one of the Scots today. The media will largely ignore that though, with it not being football.

Peter Scudamore and the PL
Players getting booked for doing very little wrong (taking shirt off, slight mistimed challenge)
Refereeing standards
Blatter
Platini
Agents
Champions League (Bring back the knockout European Cup, Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup)
Teams that get knocked out of the CL, then able to go into the Europa Cup

And....money !!

Players - and managers - are transitory.

It's just us fans that get to see a club over an extended period of time.

Whoever you are, you can't escape that you're 20 years older than you were back in the days of Fraser et al.  So you're ability to develop an affinity with players is bound to be affected by that.  Your Ferry example is a good one.  (And I'd add SSP, Simon Cox and Matt Ritchie to that list, to name a few.)  I'd imagine that today's youngsters will be remembering them in 20+ years from now in the same way you or eye go misty eyed about some of those other players.  It hasn't all changed, I'm sure.

True Ardiles, guess i'm getting wistful in my old age. Proud to look back at that era when I was in my earfly teens with an immense sense of nostalgia. Duncan Shearer, Chalkie White, Ross McClaren, David Kerslake. Ooooh, the memories  Yes Just seemed like, on average, the players stayed much longer back then, and therefore we really got a chance to take them to our hearts, without wishing to sound too slushy Grin
