Steve Shaw BS: Football (not the U.S. kind) (1257* d) RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind) 20 Jan 21

I think it's great that the Canaries are doing so well that they'll be coming back up (barring disasters). I spent half my life as an urbanite, cosseted by the abundance of big club football teams all around. When I lived up north I was in easy reach of Man U, Man City, Bolton Wanderers (then a force to be reckoned with), Bury, Rochdale, Oldham Athletic, Preston North End, Burnley, Blackburn Rovers and others I may have forgotten, and the Merseyside clubs weren't much further away either. A positive cornucopia. Here in the Westcountry, west of Bristol (which takes over two hours for us to get to, and they don't even have Premier League teams in any case), it's lamentable that all we have are Exeter City and Plymouth Argyle, both permanently languishing in lower divisions and both over an hour away from me. A good top-divisions football club can be the heart and soul of a community (and to hell with the naysayers!) and you should treasure the Canaries!
