Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
It's strange, I've got relatives that have been going to matches for 40 years, and now are at the stage where some mornings they'll just decide to give it a miss. It feels like the same club, but like the environments completely changed, I guess. Dread to think how it'll feel once Ferguson's gone.
It'd be refreshing to watch, and care about, a club where the important thing is the social aspect. Not which multi-millionaire player is signing/leaving/whatever, not which foreign owner spent the most money that window, not which steward can tell you to sit down quickest (assuming there's not too many of you/you're a fan of a traditional 'hard' club), and so on. Just having a laugh regardless of the result. Sounds like a pipedream as far as top flight football goes!
Looking at the German and English top flights, the gulf in how the game is fundamentally run is staggering.
