I am a FH squatter
- Dec 22, 2003
There are 20 teams in the League. The Premier League is not part of the Football League, it's a separate business. And even if it was, there would be 92 teams in the league system, not 72, shows how much you know about anything else.There are 72 teams in the league. You're 5 behind us.
I can understand why you're so bitter though. Over the last 5 seasons 14 out of 20 Premier League teams have outspent Lollerpool - including the mighty Bournemouth, Brighton and Wolves.
Southampton though, you've been selling so hard you've actually made a tiny profit!
Imagine if you hadn't sold your best players! Where might you be?! Maybe you'd have reached Leicester's heights!
I'm not bitter about Liverpool anymore than am I about any of the big spenders, by the way. It obviously annoys me that they shithouse their way around with no scouting system, and just buy the best players in the premier league who they think they can get a good deal on by unsettling them. But United used to do it, Spurs do it now as well.
I don't know why you'd put that line about Leicester? I've come to terms with the fact that Southampton are never going to win the league, and it's not a big deal to me. Maybe when I was 10 years old. It gets on my nerves that the league is not competitive in general outside of a few teams. Leicester was great... but do I have to wait another 25 years for something exciting to happen?
The Premier League was set up to benefit the big boys, and hopefully when they all fuck off the super league then there will be some whinging fans who should who have said they won't stand for the way football is going a long time ago, but didn't because their side was doing well.
Like Raven, I prefer going to lower league football now. I watch Saints on Sky because I have access to my dads Sky Go account, I wouldn't pay for it myself though. I will always go to St Marys though if i'm in Southampton and there is a game on, i'll admit, because I just love live football. But as i grow older, the less attachment I have to the town, and when my dad moves back to Wales like he is planning to, i'll likely never have an excuse to go there, so who knows.
