Well I can ask the statto question I did previously in case newcomers don't remember it. Which are the two teams who have spent the entire Premier league "era" in only either 3rd or 4th tier; so league 1 or 2 as is now, and never going up to Championship or out of the league?

rochdale is one

That’s it, right there.

 As a fan, we put up with all sorts of football. Good, bad and utter shite but the overriding reason for any fan is being there. That’s all that matters to me and most other fans. Television or whatever is a poor substitution for actually being there. 

Looking back I think I was more attached to Burnden Park than BWFC. I stopped taking up a season ticket after 3 yrs or so at the Reebok, I still go to matches but it's not the same to me... could be because we are all sitting down?

First time I have admitted to this but at least we still have BWFC

Surely geography plays a part in your case?

I always loved Burnden, it's where I grew up watching Bolton.

I didn't think I had the same connection with the Reebok but turning up for my jab last week gave me goosebumps after so long away.

The last few years, I've stayed in pubs instead of going to games, spent entire halves underneath the stands because I've had no connection with the players.

The pride is back. I can't wait to be back either

I've never given up but the Breezeblock never felt like home. I think that BWFC is my last real link with my roots, especially since my old mum passed away (I used to combine visits with matches).

However I do think you'll see me a lot more, "I follow" is probably the main reason, I've hardly missed a match this season and I have got right back into it, also thanks to talking to everyone on this site.

Loved Burnden but like everything in life, things change. 
Great memories at Burnden. Great memories at The Reebok. 
Wouldn’t change a minute of it. Good and bad. The bad times make the good even better.

People are a massive part of feeling/belonging.

The number of 4th division boys I saw in Bulgaria in our 1st Euro days was humbling. 

You might go years without turning up but the feeling of belonging never leaves you

Folk that couldn’t be arsed with the reebok after burnden only missed the boozer. Fuck all else.

That first season or so was lively as. All the pisspots couldn’t be arsed after that, was too much effort.

Thats where the Chorley and Howrich lot stepped in.

😊

Its normal end of season nerves. There have been many of these over the years. As I said in an earlier post. Not many teams have been in our position. Doesn’t get any easier though.
