Agreed. The most soulless club you could ever find, watching 11 mercenaries trotting around in a giant biscuit tin. At least back in the day they had something about them.

Well done Bournemouth.

He said “their position”, Mousey, not ‘them’.

Indeed, who have Aldershot got on Saturday? Derby county as opposed to boredom wood

Umm, in a soulless stadium with fans that are so plastic they are all like Barbie and Ken with most having no idea of their clubs history or rivalries.

No thanks.

League position, Mousey! (But I think that you know that’s what Preston Shot meant)

Aldershot in the Championship or National League? Mmm 🤔

They can’t all be plastic, probably 50% of them are, how about Manchester United fans? Probably 80% are plastic

Exactly.

And Birdy if it meant losing our identity and playing in a quarter filled plastic stadium next to fans that didnt even know that Elm park existed and leaving 15 mins before the end of games....no I wouldn't swap league position.

I don’t want us to be playing in a “plastic stadium” either Mousey. To me, I would rather we had a ground with a capacity that was more than adequate not only for our current needs but also for L2 and L1 and as such, a 7,000 capacity (similar to now) would imo be enough and “our identity” wouldn’t be lost.
Your remark about “fans that didn’t even know that Elm Park existed” etc; like it or not, there will be some of our current and future generation of supporters who will remember and talk about the Gary Waddock eras, maybe even Gary Abbot, Terry Brown etc but not be familiar with our history pre ‘92. We can’t just get by and exist on stories of yesteryear (as good as some of them were). ATFC, like virtually every other club, need new supporters to enable it to keep going. At the moment we seem (for various reasons) to be losing supporters a bit quicker that we replace them.
Going back to the original point (swapping places), if Championship level was achieved (yeah..., I know :roll:) then we would have to adapt to seating rules. That said, I believe that there are talks going on to allow standing areas in the top two tiers. Will that affect us? Highly likely not but ..., who knows.
For now though, talk of Championship, L1, L2 football at The Rec in the foreseeable future is just a dream and far removed from reality (and God only knows what that’s going to be like as and when this pandemic has run its course).
