    Maybe the extra £20K will go towards paying the balance of the debt of the Johnny Haynes Statue..?

    That would be nice and fitting use of the 50k, LB.

    Oh, and well done you England-based fans on winning the "best behaved" awards. If dangerously deranged American-based loonies like FulhamAg, SteveM19, ClevelandMo, and RidgeRider regulary attended the Cottage, we'd have finished closer to bottom than to top.

    ...to be fair HD, we do have our own handicap system in the shape of Cork City - and we still won it despite his best efforts... :banana:

    Wow... the various correlations open eyes. Look at bottom of ranks, as well.

    And WTF is it with Aston Villa fans? Could it have something to do with the preference for girls' round butts as avatars on the A-V forums? Only thing I can think of...
    Oh, wait.... Dawgpound emulation!

    {searching in vain for a comeback}


    Also, it's interesting that Liverpool fans came in #2. Don't tell Steven Cohen!

    This is something to be very proud of. Such a classy club, whether dangling above relegation or going on a European Tour.

    I would hope that this is something that players pay attention to (somewhere a distant second to money) when considering transferring. Who wouldn't want to play for this little club that could?
