The same reason why my Sox sucked this year and Liverpool sucking -John Fucking Henry- Why he had to buy into Liverpool (after joining Roush-Fenway for racing) and split his time between them I'll never know. And to hear him talk makes me want to punch him in his tooth

Re: Why be a real sport's fan when you can just...

Survived the dark days of the Hamilton era, the 'Worthy out' campaign, Peter the pointer's 5 million scottish jobber revolution, Roeder's loan fetish for other teams academy players and even Bryan Gunn's (once a legend, now tainted) deluded reign that nearly destroyed my club. Throughout the near six year Worthington reign I was a regular away follower and rarely saw us win away due to his attempts to play for a draw which usually lead to defeat. Kept going. Renewed my ST even when we were playing 'pump it to Earnshaw the midget lone striker'. Spent a fortune getting to games while exiled in Durham and now Leicestershire, despite often returning with very little to be positive about.

Seen us lose 6-0 away to Fulham on the last day of the 04-05 prem season when a win would have kept us up, thought that was bad. Then saw us lose 4-2 at Charlton on the last day of the 08-09 champs season when only a win would do, thought that was worse. Then I saw us lose 7-1 AT HOME to fucking Colchester United (and stayed until the end) on the opening day of the 09-10 league one season, thank fuck it didn't get worse than that!

Despite all of that I'm still a die hard Norwich supporter, because it's those moments which shape you as a football fan and make you appreciate the good times. If I hadn't stuck through all of that then I wouldn't have been able to fully enjoy or appreciate the suprise play-off surge in Spring 2002 where a bunch of reserve team misfits were only a few penalty kicks away from the prem, Hucks dragging us up in 03-04 as a one man team destroying an entire league (and still not getting division one POTS!), the resurgunce under Paul Lambert and the pure elation of back to back promotions.

It's all about the journey.

OTBC.

Liverpool's decline has had nothing to do with John Henry. Our previous owners royally fucked our club, as well as Rafa having the transfer nous of a retard. We got rid of a few of our class players (Xabi Alonso and Mascherano to Madrid and Barca respectively) and replaced them with utter shite like Aquilani who was injured, then barely got any game time.

They did also contribute to it with Kenny Dalglish by essentially wasting 100 mil on rubbish players (Downing, Carroll, Adam are the 3 main ones) and thus we are now fairly screwed as our new manager didn't have the funds to make the transfers he wanted. If we had more funds we'd have had at least one of Gylfi, Dempsey or Sturridge

Have no problem with people becoming fans of new teams. But when they hop off a year later, that pisses me off.

No trust me compared to the previous owners we had he fucking brilliant. Our problems were not all cause by Henry. Hell only a couple and that is it.

My team's 70 miles away from another major team, so no derbies. As it happens, no victories either. Yet we never get relegated, so no heartbreak.
