Doesn't look good for another club 'chasing the dream'

Good. The North Kent swamp is not a place any football fan or team should be made to travel for an away game.

Refrain from hyperbole, and explain more intelligently why you look down so much on this area, and how the geography (or geology) matters so much to you in terms of turning up for a few hours once a year for a football match

And then balance your transient geographical apartheid against the fact that a good number of die-hard football fans may lose the club that means so much to them. Think how you'd feel if you went out of business in your relegation year.

Stop being so spiteful, there was absolutely no need for you to make those comments.

Geographical bigotry due to the grim architecture that pervades. Last time I went to a game at Gillingham the home stand next to the away end chanted “BNP! BNP!” for much of the match.

These collapses don’t happen over night. Die-hard fans would have done something long ago; whether speaking out when the unsustainable spending happened or boycotting when it was clear the owners are not up to task.

During the MyFootballClub farce, and then with the dodgy Kuwaitis were the die-hards protesting or sitting back and letting it happen?

Hereford fans the best in recent years imo; realising their club was owned by a spiv, boycotting, and forming their own. That’s die-hard. Ebbsfleet look more die-easy.

OK, taking away your so-called just desserts based on fans behaviour and choices, what about those living in the area who have nothing to do with the football club. Do they deserve your locational vitriol?

As a prospective client to your economic research consultancy I hope you would approach any study I commission from a more objective point of view than the prejudiced one you currently hold for this part of the world.

Well, karma going to bite my buttocks: CTFC away at Ebbsfleet and a chance for them to humiliate us.

Sorry in advance fellow Robins!
