Does anyone have a reason as to why Derby were deducted points at the start of the season? Something to do with contract/transfer breaches? They'd be out of the relegation zone I believe if they weren't. At this rate no doubt they'll be one of the 3 to be relegated.
Arsenal was firmly embedded in the local community and had a very solid, working-class foundations. The fans espoused the club's values. This visceral attachment, from childhood, to a club and a team is something I have never seen anywhere else with such fervour. Every fan's first match at Highbury was like a baptism.
