As Dave Gahan often croons, it's just a question of time.

According to the bookies we have as much chance as Inverness winning the SPL, sums it up unfortunately.

re: call me defeatest but

although winning the league is unrealistic, i think fans follow the team through loyalty and for moments like chelsea, man utd and arsenal at home in the league last season.

re: call me defeatest but

So its took you 45 years to realise we are not good enough to win the PL?

Nice going.

Who cares if we can't. Support Chelsea if you are that dismayed.

Once you had a chance of getting there though. Now we really need Gibson to increase his wealth by about a hundred times to have any chance at all.

re: call me defeatest but

To be fair we actually had a chance of winning the league in the 70s under Jack Chalrton, If we bought a quality centrefoward,we didnt.

We had a chance in the 40s as well.

We have 0% chance now and never will again.

You've just said you've given up.

Perhaps the point is that our friend can remember the day (as I can) when ten or more teams were capable of winning the First Division. 1975 was a good example when there were that number of teams (including Boro) still in with a chance with only a few weeks of the season left. Everton, Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Sky TV have wrecked all that.

I remember that great footballing visionary, Arsene Wenger, remarking one August that we were genuine dark horses for the title.

The following season we were playing Oxford United and Queens Park Rangers in the league.

re: call me defeatest but

Would we prefer a cash rich premier, where the serious wealth is with the top teams, so the rest cannot compete, as today.

Or a cash strapped league where players dont get obsene wages, so most clubs could afford to sign a decent player and hence a more combatative league.

I like te sound of option 2, myself.

re: call me defeatest but

one day the money is going to fall out of football - that will be the time when more teams are able to win the league, providing a financial collapse doesnt completely kill the game

It would be a pleasure.
