Thread: Football has been ruined by the premier league

    Re: Football has been ruined by the premier league

    I can think of only one other City fan in my sixth form (late 1990s) in a high school in Cardiff. The rest were the usual mixture of EPL television watchers.

    We were proper sh!t back then, though. As in, routinely beaten by teams like Lincoln, Chester, Southend, Torquay. We went on a 5-match losing streak in one of those seasons, losing to Scarborough, Colchester, Peterborough, Macclesfield and Hartlepool. We put an end to it with a 0-0 home draw against Darlington. So yeah. Proper shit.

    I do believe it’s the families and how the younger generations follow football. My old man, grandfather, uncles etc all support Cardiff. As do my wife’s side aswell so my kids follow suit. My eldest son who’s 19 does go out on a Sunday up the pub to watch the afternoon but generally as a football fan and social event with his mates and most of the time him and his mates are down the city and going to wales games aswell.
    Same Circumstances for most of our friends however there are one or two who support Utd or Liverpool, and hey ho so do their children.
    I do feel there are a lot more teens and younger kids down the city these days than when I was kid over at NP.
    Won’t happen overnight but we are moving in the right direction fanbase
