A Proper League

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.

Same here. It was a fun season in more than one way. When was the last time we won more than 4 in a row or kept 21 clean sheets (Newcastle defence used to be an oxymoron.. and probably will be again)...Surely it wasn't pretty football but it was honest. And even winning 'ugly' felt great.
Plymouth were a great example for sportsmanship and fighting spirit... they'll have my support from now on (whatever it's worth)

After Hansa and the Toon, the best thing you could do for them is promise to throw your support behind Exeter.
