The reality is that Bath are no longer the great side they once were and they have no divine right to be again.
Win lose or draw I love walking to the Rec with my friends and enjoy the camaraderie of the many I meet up with once a fortnight (on average) when I get there.
The negativity that ere seems to convey is a vociferous minority of the Rec faithful who find it somehow comforting to vent their spleen in the only way they can muster.
No real fan can be happy with the way things are going but some of the reactions on ere are completely over the top.
What I am finding sad is the increasing acceptance on ERE that we are and so far ahead as we can see accept we will be second grade not only this season, but for many to come.
We, the supporters are customers who are being let down by unprofessionalism on the pitch, losing in the last minutes of the game, but also I suggest off.
We are trying to buy our way to the top, not creating it; how is it that Donald whom we signed in the summer, but had to await the the end of the World Cup for him to arrive unfit. We had a brilliant potential in Freddie Burns, who stated publically the "hardest decision was leaving Bath" The hooker who went to Tigers after his TWO games in the First XV being nominated as Man of the Match, Ovens is leant to Brist after the same, making room for an expensive signing.
We have a huge asset in our supporters, 12k+ still watching when the English Champions can get 5k if they are lucky! But for how much longer? I worry I am hearing doubts about renewing season tickets growing...............
We cannot go on like this.
Maybe so, but I am just looking at the top of the other groups.
I think not being in the HC helped Sale been able to win a few games in the Amlin gaining confidence and with no level of expectation on them.
