    mcsilks' list of COYRs faux pas that we have had to endure this season...

    I'm sure the list is endless, and let's face it, without mcsilks' posts to keep us thoroughly entertained this season, all things DCFC 17/18 related could have quite possibly been a tad depressing!

    I'll start you off with this little gem... which is an even bigger gem, seeing as the second and third quoted posts actually form the start of a whole brand new shiny thread...

    Can you now.

    Go on then. Just what have we achieved from 1998~present?

    What miraculous ups have the supporters had to cheer about for a club of our supporter base and stature?

    You have said you can think of hundreds of clubs. I challenge you to name 100.

    Instead of focussing on what is bad about the Rams I'd much sooner focus on the fact that we are a promotion chasing Championship club which, for the majority of my lifetime, has been our level.


    As I said, name the 100.

    Most clubs that are lingering in League 1 and 2 do not have our fans base, stadium, set-up, expectations, etc....so simply cannot be talked about in the same light.

    I said that DCFC have had to suffer over the last 20 years with few highlights. That obviously factors in expectations. Name the 100 LR and be true to your word.

    The Rams fans have a good right to moan about our complete lack of achievement over the last 20 years when we have seen countless clubs with far fewer resources leave us in the distance.





    Thanks mcsilks... keep 'em coming!

    He (or she) has certainly livened things up a bit.


    A really good addition to the site IMHO. I don't always agree with his (or her) point of view, but posts are usually reasoned, well though out, and always worth a read.
