So every cloud really does have a silver lining. Monday night at Home Park proved that if the Premier League has a monopoly on big money and global TV coverage, the Championship's still where you'll find most of the proper fans. You only need to compare Plymouth Argyle with the spoilt, self-pitying moaners at Anfield and The Emirates, or the snide, overly-gleeful reaction of Aston Villa supporters ("a nothing club who nobody cares about anyway, who can't even fill their ground when they're threatening to break into the top four," in the oh so accurate words of one internet poster) to our relegation last year. Best of luck to Plymouth. I hope you'll enjoy next season as much as we've enjoyed this.
I've said it before: I'll miss the Championship.
