    National League quality is so far better than that lumpy crap in L2.

    There's a whole load of reasons and that's just a part of it. The fans that had some connection to the previous club still celebrated that first FA Cup and the first couple of league titles. But that was largely to get the monkey off their backs of 35+ years of being under the shadow of United and tasting success. But as the seasons have gone on, even they looked at the club now and feel not enough of a connection with it to feel the same buzz they used to.

    They changed the club far too much in one go - the ownership and mega money, but the stadium and badge to the point it really could have any name over the gate tbh.

    I don't think so tbh. The reason being everything now is so globalised and documented through social media, and Sky Sports before it.

    Also bcos clubs we've grown up with that we consider old skool have had their reps built through the fans. That'll never be the case now for City. One bcos their fans are virtually non-existent, and secondly for the reasons stated above.

    We're 20 yrs down the road for Chelsea already and ppl's views are what they are, despite many including me thinking they still had some history about them before Roman.

    Tears? Just makes no fukin sense <laugh><doh>

    You've obviously blanked out the two cups we've already won this year and I get thats how you cope with being #peasants but it could get a lot worse for you next Saturday.

    Losing a European cup final against real madrid kinda problems is just fine by me.

    Kinda problems people play and watch the game for <whistle>

    Notts County beat Juventus in an unofficial European Cup a hundred or so years ago

    Juventus not only adopted the shirt but also copied the no nonsense tackling of Notts County and so the Italian take no prisoners defending was born

    Bit different for me ... I agree with you about Chelsea ... but I also remember the Citeh side that beat us in the 1969 Cup Final and the likes of Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee and Francis Lee ...

    From the evasive answer, I'm guessing it was yes.
