An article from Stmonkton52 looking at the reality of where we are and where we can go, and how long it might take – read on for more.
I’m not looking for sympathy but I’m really starting to feel the chill wind of reality and it ain’t a pleasant place.
As I followed Saturday’s game I began to realise just how long it will take us to get back to somewhere positive.
The bad news is we’re out of the cup, we’re just about holding on in the bottom tier of the league and we are usually about the next to last game on the television review of the league.
Some of us have been here before at the end of the 1970s and it took a mighty long time for the good times to arrive. If you look at the vast investment that teams at the top of the Championship are making and yet failing to get out of the division, I see no prospect of us getting back to the top tier.
All this makes me feel really, really downhearted.
I saw my first game at Fratton in 1959 and so spent almost a lifetime waiting for the great times we had a few years ago. I’m grateful we got those years and I am so pleased that we still have a club to follow. Does it hurt more because we had those times ?
I think it probably does.
I know we should be positive and I agree we are on the right track but the reality is that we will remain a small scale third tier club at best and it hurts !
Do others feel the same?
