Credit where it's due dosser,it's not that long ago that they were cannon fodder for our reserves. |
They are still Macc Town,but we are still Stockport County,still a music hall joke and they have overtaken us.
Don't misunderstand the "music hall joke" remark,but I first saw County in 1949 and with just about three short exceptions they have always been a joke.
And I would change none of it. I wouldn't support any other team for a pension. The ups and downs have been higher and lower,the crises longer,the moments of sheer pride more euphoric, the 24/7 joy of being a County fan greater than any other interest/pastime/hobby the world can offer.
So Macc Town are doing a little better than us at present,so we are playing in a Regional league,so we are struggling a little,so what?
These things change,we may win a promotion or two.Or we may not.We may be relegated (doubtful but we are always over a trapdoor}. So what? If,as at present,we are fairly average,then we are at the level we belong.We are playing competitive football and as fans,we should be enjoying the ride.
We only have one "County-time, one period of our life when we can attend matches,home and away,one spell(hopefully of many years),when we can be real fans.
Which gives us a choice,We can enjoy every minute of it,or we can constantly complain about results,the team,the manager,owners,tea lady etc
So,I would offer one word of advice to the perpetual moaners.This is your County-time,.It will end. Others who are sharing your County-time (think dosser),are enjoying it,feeling constantly optimistic and loving the feeling of supporting County.
So lighten up,enjoy the ride and don't look back in regret in later years .
