I just hope the same isn't true for them blue nosed shitbags.
Although Bristol Rovers bettered themselves through the experience, this is not the norm. There are plenty of ex-league clubs who won't be back anytime in the near future such as Darlington, Stockport, York , Torquay etc. Other teams such as Luton took years to steady the ship and start the long road to recovery. Wrexham went down with us and are stilll in the hellhole that is non league.[
Some of those clubs were in better shape than the sheep when they dropped and still there was no magic wand. I do think they have appointed a good manager but unless large numbers of fans back the club through the turnstiles, I feel their stay may be longer and even deeper than ours. I'm looking forward to Alfreton turning them over in the league in the next two or three years.
