Of course I have, but that’s not claiming football was invented in 1992, just polls for games/goals during the history of the competition.
If you’re down the pub for the weekly quiz and they have a round on 90s Music, would you shout up, oi, music wasn’t invented in the 90s you know?
As I said earlier, for some the Premier League is all they have known, that is what they were born into.
It’s not arrogance, pigheadedness or any other insult you want to throw at them, it’s just that is all they know.
Theres a real hatred for Sky Sports and football today from the older generation that want to remind us how great football was before they got involved, what I don’t understand is if it’s so bad now, why follow the game still? Or even join forums, social media and hold conversations with those fans that wind you up.
Sky get the blame for the debt, players wages but it’s not Sky’s fault, that’s the clubs that agree to the agents demands. Now if clubs actually stood together and said no, we’re not paying, the financial side of the game wouldn’t be where it is today.
And I LOVE, the coverage Sky offers, sure it can be frustrating when a game gets moved, the Forest game was recently moved which meant I wouldn’t have been able to go so I have been affected and it could be handled a lot better than it is.
But, I love being able to sit on my sofa or down the pub with mates watching a game on Monday night, Saturday dinner, then 3 games on Sunday. I have a Sky Sports and BT Sports subscription, it’s expensive but it’s great.
The coverage the game gets now will ultimately mean fans will have a better knowledge of games, goals, players outside of their own team and across Europe so in 50 years time we’re not having conversations like this where fans are being accused of arrogance, pigheadedness as they haven’t YouTube searched a game back in the 80s which was apparently iconic at the time.
To finish, @DarkFruitsRam7 mentioned him, Mason Mount, at the time “some” were trying to claim nobody knows who he was, but this is the thing, they did and why? The coverage the game gets today.
Back in the 80s do you remember who was in the youth teams at Derby? I’m guessing not. Today though, fans do so when we see the likes of Sibley break into the team it’s not who is this kid, it’s excitement because we’ve seen what he can do.
I love football today, finances need sorting out, Sky could handle rescheduling games better, but I LOVE it and I won’t hang my head in shame for feeling this way.
