    If there's one thing more imponderable than how a great team can become so bad, its how their supporters can remain blind to it.

    Being trounced in the table by a team that nobody outside wigan, and very few inside wigan, would give any hope of premiership survival says it all.

    couldn't put it better, twenty one years, then a fluke.

    even had to change the rules to allow teams not good enough on merit in.

    how embarrassing

    Yup. About 15 "flukes" in total. Just ask Graz, Monaco, Olympiacos, Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus, Chelsea and AC Milan.

    Wow, such an original line of argument. We'd won the contest that season, if this doesn't show our European aptitude then what does? Not to mention that if it wasn't mainly down to Liverpool (and Manchester United for that matteR) over the last few years, The Premiership would have had a far lower European coefficient and no 4th CL place.

    how embarrassing
    For you, obviously.

    Entertainment draws people to the game, but last night I'd have preferred United winning with a dodgy performance than being 'entertaining' and losing. It's a shame that Fergie got booed against Blackburn, because he's done a lot for United.

    I think teams should play more positively and not look to protect there one nil leads, and try to score more goals. If the entertainment goes, I reckon that the fans will still stay (well the true fans will!)

    It's called closing ranks. We now have Arsenal, Bolton, Chelsea, Liverpool managers that I've heard, (and the nature of this post is that it will date so quickly and others will no doubt be added) all supporting Ferguson.

    Interesting isn't it.
    Birmingham manager, Steve Bruce
    Paul Ince
    probably West Brom manager too

    the poll question is a bit awkward because it depends on your viewpoint. if you are a diehard fan of your team then the result is obviously the key thing.
    however, the majority of tv football viewers are not diehard fans. they are either neutral or they like to root for a particular team but purely for entertainment rather than passion.

    as a gooner i would much rather see Arsenal win 1-0 than lose 5-4. but if we won every game 1-0 and drew 0-0 i would be bored by it and lose interest.
    if we lost/drew every game 5-4, 4-3, 3-3 etc then i would not lose interest at all, the excitement factor would still be there.
