Extract from Story:
Notts County, the founderest founding member of the Football League in 1888, were relegated out of it on Saturday, and will spend next season playing in the National League. The Magpies, 157, finished in the play-off positions in season 2017/18, but showed what a waste of time it would have been had they been promoted in May 2018, because a side who can't survive in League Two, can hardly expec.....

As a Carlisle United supporter who has watched my team beat Tottenham Hotspur to go top of the very top division in 1974, and who has also watched them lose to Tamworth Town in non league football, I think this is an important story, providing, as it does, a glimpse of a footballing world barely imagined by today's armchair "Premiershit" fans.


Notts County go out, and either Fylde (bankrolled club with no fans) or Salford City (ex Man Utd players' vanity project) will enter the league.


PS Carlisle once beat Roma 3-2 in Rome, you know, in the Anglo Italian Cup. This season we lost 3-1 at home to the aforementioned Notts County.

I remember that well, Erskin. I think Bristol City were up in the First Division at around the same time, and both QPR and Villa were champions in that era.

I remember seeing Carlisle in the 70s at Boothferry Park, that blue shirt and the white mid-section with red piping was one of my favourite kits.

You know what I remember liking about Carlisle? Chris Balderstone, the man who was so gifted, he played cricket as well, for Leics, I think.

And I also went to Brunton Park once. A long way, that was.

Shame about Notts County, but, like Lincoln, Tranmere and the others, they're bound to get back up.

Aren't they?

I've given up on football. The wife cheered last night when the Mickeys scored against Barca.

Cheered!

She doesn't get it...

You have to say, Skoob, it was pretty incredible. Liverpool, I mean.

And then there's Bolton...

Brunton Park is still a long way.

Notts County you would think should soon come back up, but it depends on how much of a mess they are in (run into the ground by mountebanks and wheeler-dealers I believe).

Wrexham have been down there a long time.

Going back to what Mr Woods said - yes, incredible performances from Spurs and Liverpool. Not only that but great to watch too.

As for personal preferences, I support my home town team by default, but having said that, I've also cheered for Burnley, Portsmouth (when they really were not very good) Blackpool, and PNE. I even cheered for City once in the play offs, a decision I came to regret.

I went to Brunton Park also, when CUFC were in the then Second Division.

The best away day though was Arsenal at Highbury. They tried to kill us, but we survived, and I got kind of close with my better half that evening. November, 1992 that was. We won 1-0 and Hughsie scored.

After the cat died, she kicked me out. All I have now is a phone and dependency issues. Oh, and a tent and a sleeping bag. This is what the Spoof does to you.

I'm all alone and dying in my own filth.

But I'm happy!

Regards,

Skoob.

RIP
