We did to be fair at a few games when we have been relegated. I remember people dressing for a funeral in our premier league season

Until the old bill stepped in and started throwing their weight about (and a few supporters) for no apparent reason.

Wasn't that the defeat that got rid of Mick Mills as their manager and the whole ground was singing "sacked in the morning" at Mills?
I recall:

He's short

He's fat

He's going to get the sack

Micky Mills, Micky Mills!


Stoke fans absolutely brilliant that day

Good summary in today's Observer of those in the "much worse off" category:

Covered this in another thread but this thread is equally good.

I did wonder which thread to post it in TBH. But yes its a state.

EDIT.

In addition I read that today Boltons problems continue. Unpaid wages, players given the day off and apparently the training ground is closed due to lack of any food and fuel.

Todays summary of the Bolton shit show.... https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/17476975.staff-pay-season-tickets-and-the-takeover-bid-every-twist-and-turn-in-the-wanderers-saga-from-the-last-48-hours/

As of this afternoon the Council have announced that unless they receive assurances by 1pm tomorrow that the club can meet the requirements of the University of Bolton Stadium's safety certificate in terms of safety medics stewards etc they may revoke its safety certificate and thus Saturdays game would be off.

Somewhat unhelpfully they are supposed to be playing Millwall which would, I assume, mean a larger police presence than usual and thus greater cost?
