Too Much Moaning

I'm an ex-pat living near Cambridge, and don't get much chance to see Town, but when I do I don't think they do too bad! All this moaning when we're clearly boxing above our weight - a club like Town, with our infrastructure, level of support, financial backing etc., shouldn't even be able to get in the first div.! To end a season having given a few of the 'big guys' a fright, in the most competitive division one ever, and seen a team at least try and play a passing game instead of 'route one' stuff (like Sheff. Utd @ our Park), is a joy. (OK, maybe not a joy, but....).

There will be no place for teams like Town in div. one inside two years - ask Walsall, Bristol City et al. Look who we beat to get in Div One - Northampton - and see who they're playing! I just think Town supporters expect far too much and are incredibly unrealistic. Unless, of course, we get an El Fayed......
