I live in a relatively quite part of Somerset and when I was having a swift pint in a village pub, I listened to a conversation between a few lads who were Yeovil Town fans. The conversation was regarding their poor start to the season in the lower reaches of League 2, the topic was the next match and the comment was "its a pity we can't play West Ham as we need an easy game". Ears really atuned the conversation developed into a discussion about our club. The most telling comment which really increased my adrenalin flow is that "West Ham are a joke team with joke owners, joke players, and joke manager". Very upset and extremely pissed and wishing I could relive those days in the Sixties on the old North Bank where those sort of statements led to severe repercussions, then the comments went, "its a shame as the West Ham fans are brilliant and deserve better". Well, what can you say, our entire last season and the start of this encapsulated in a few words by a bunch of piss artists in a pub in Bruton!
