And you have been wrong for the last few days
the proposed ESL was a closed shop FROM THE OFF. No chance of promotion and relegation at all. Ever. Not for anybody. Yes, the Big 5 gave an ultimatum and threw their weight around to the other clubs to back the proposals or they would go on their own but that was never their intention otherwise they would have done so.
I do see how it is ironic that we were one of the instigators of the Premier League and yet suffered as a consequence of it. Yes, I agree. We did nothing to re-tool and I put the blame squarely at the door of Mr Whippy (Philip Carter) for that, as you do too.
We have our own shame to deal with from the past and as far as I can tell none of us stopped supporting Everton because of it, that's why I take a very cynical view of all these fans that said they would stop going if the ESL happened. It's all bravado and bullshit, we are addicts and the powers that be know it.
At least I suppose Everton paid the price for their arrogance with 30 years of being shit.....if only the same could now happen to the shitty six.
