So the question is would anyone have preferred to have stayed in the Premier league as a mid table team until being purchased by ML and maybe being a few years ahead of where we are now, maybe already a cup win and European football. Or the path we have actually taken with all the downs then ups? I was devestated when we went down and thought it inconceivable that we would drop down another league. But I am glad of the route we have gone down as it opens your eyes to the bigger picture and you can then appreciate the good times more. We have a great team spirit, best in the league if you ask me and this is shown by the number of league 1 players still in and around our first team squad. I do think that players do as a rule believe the hype about big teams and big players when actually they should believe in themselves to become that big player. This brings me to the main reason for being happy with how things have gone for us.....Sir Rickie Lambert! The man is such a great all round player and nice bloke, just one of the lads, a mate. In just a few years he has now become my favourite player of all time surpassing the mighty MLT! Part of that is down to that England game and goal. I'm half English and half Scottish so wasn't overly bothered about the result but I desperately wanted Rickie to score, a similar feeling I imagine to your brother or son playing, I've never felt like that before! There is no way we would have taken a punt on Lambert if we had stayed in the Premier league so for me it's a no brainer and I for one can't wait for the book and then movie of Lamberts life to come out!
