For the gloomers and doomers

I was fascinated by this bit of information in Martin Tylers column on Sky Sports. How long have clubs gone without a trophy? 6 years may seem a long time, compared to the 16 year gap of 1953-69 where our beloved team won zero, zip, nada...it's nothing. But how badly off are we really?

That puts a little perspective on the situation. When we're sitting with a side like ours and waiting 35 years like Man City, then i think we can complain.
