Guest Cannabis Posted March 11, 2018 Share Posted March 11, 2018 Following the crowd trouble at West Ham yesterday in protest against their owners it got me thinking. Have football clubs always been this poisonous? I don't know whether it's because of my age but 10-15 years ago I was too busy collecting Merlin stickers to notice any protests or rumblings within club hierarchy whereas now I could name many teams off the top of my hat that have been killed (or damaged) as a result of poor decisions at board level; Blackburn Rovers, Portsmouth, Leyton Orient, Blackpool, Wimbledon, West Ham, Charlton, Coventry, Sunderland, Aston Villa - the list goes on and on. Some worse than others but it's becoming normal for there to be a major disconnect between board and fan. Has it always been this way? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
