Used to be some good political threads on the old Gasroom , arguably the best ones of all. Now we have been dumbed down so far that we talk about Chinese takeaways in a surrounding village! But no, this thread is not about the potential end of the American empire under Trump or the self-inflicted harm of brexit, or the alarming rise of nationalism or the fake news phenomenon that makes it acceptable for a party leader to barefaced lie about where he lives and attempt to ham-fistedly make political capital out of fictitious links to Hillsborough.
This thread is about Lg2 and a thread bemoaning the decline in Lg2 of west representation. Those exiles amongst us will recognise the feeling of excitement when the fixtures come out, when will their local games be scheduled? Will they be on a weekend or a Tuesday, will they be clumped together or reasonably spread? There was a time when there was ample material for a SW based chairboy - Torquay, Exeter and Plymouth just down the road, with Bristol, Newport and Cheltenham not too far away. Well we have lost Torquay - probably for good, Plymouth look like finally getting their act together and returning more to a level their size of support justifies, Bristol are long gone, Exeter may go if they make and win the playoffs, Newport and Cheltenham could return to the Conference where perhaps they belong. We may gain Swindon and Forest Green at a push, but perhaps we may just be left with bloody Yeovil, soulless ground , middle of nowhere, where I don't think I have ever seen a decent game of football, possibly not even a goal. Second nearest ground? Adams Park, High Wycombe - just the 225 miles away.
No real point made, no real response required, just fancied a bit of a rant. Passed the time. Enjoy your day.
