    An interesting read. Im too young to remember this season (in fact the first season I remember was when we finished 2nd behind Liverpool) but seems eerily similar to whats happening now….at least we bounced back quick though!

      The great experience us older fans had (I’m 67) was the ride up from Div 3. You have to go down there to experience it, and there was a continuity all the way to Rotterdam. Not a moneybags from heaven transformation that Chelsea and Citeh had, or always one rung short like Arsenal. The nearest to it since is Bournemouth, from passing the buckets round Dean Court to save the club – to beating Chelsea and Manure in one week, with much of the same team.

      Rotterdam was a turning point for the London Lions, marriage and kids came next for a lot of them because they sensed it was the end of a journey. There was a big change of membership for the following season but 3 of us said “Lets go to Japan” for the World Club game and we did, but that really was the end of the pier. We thought then we would never be as good again. In terms of the quality the Dean Saunders Dalian Atkinson team was even better, but the opposition was also tougher so we did not win the League.

      Benno I hope when Villa turn around you have a great a ride! Have a good 2016.

    Let’s hope we start the new year by selecting a starting lineup a little more interesting. Impressive back in at cb, Cissokho left back, Gary Gardner in the middle with Gana. Traore on the right, Hepburn-Murphy up top playing of the last man. Something different.

    Hope you don’t mind me posting a link to VV, but this is a very good piece regarding how pointless it is repeatedly changing managers whilst the business plan stays the same. The only solution is to be rid of Lerner and the board…
