I feel so disillusioned with football right now. I support a team whose owners and board, in my opinion, are a bunch of twats who care nothing for the club but seem intent on treating it as a cash cow and don't give a flying fcuk about what we fans think. Imo, they lie, cheat and steal with impunity seemingly with the connivance of our so-called Trust who do sweet sod all on our behalf to call them to account. I just wish that I had the money to mount a challenge to all of them because, if I did, their fcuking feet wouldn't touch the ground. I would hound them mercilessly and expose them all for the thieving wankers I believe them to be. Then I hear pundits on the radio, people who are well placed to judge, express the possibility that the club are probably not interested in pursuing promotion as it suits their own self interests not to do so!! In other words, they all take the attitude that we the fans can suck up whatever shit they choose to throw at us and, with the Trust, seemingly literally in their pockets, there's nothing we can do about it.

Then all that is compounded by what happens on the field. We have a manager and a team who are doing really well for us only to be cheated of their just desserts by a series of incompetent/corrupt officials. It happens too often to be regarded as coincidence, imo, and I'm fast believing that there really is an agenda to keep us out of the top level. I know that every team has to suffer from bad decisions but if an analytical video was made of every one of our games during the past few seasons and presented to those who administer the Referee's Association for their scrutiny and comments, I'm pretty sure they'd shit themselves. Particularly if it was made public.

Anyway, rant over but the whole state of affairs stinks to high Heaven.

Here's some highlights and there are two obvious observations.

1. Our goal was a thing of beauty and 2 that penalty decision was an absolute disgrace and the official who gave it should be ashamed.

Have to say from what I've seen and read that Routs had a really great game and there's no way should the club contemplate selling him when he can produce performances like that. He was excellent. I've criticised him in the past when he's just gone through the motions and he deserved it but I'm delighted to give him praise when he turns it on and he turned it on on this game. More please, Routs, well done!!

Three words. We were robbed.

It clearly hits him on the chest, both arms are behind him.
It seems the ineptitude of match officials is even worse in the Championship.
It’s hard not to think it’s anti-Welsh, as biased decisions by officials seem to abound in our matches, inevitably against us. We’ve lost seven points through controversial penalties this season.
