    Premier League Imposter Syndrome


    15 Not allowed!
    Anyone else think they have imposter syndrome from all this Premier League stuff?

    Featuring on Match of the Day still feels like a one off treat, and we'll soon be back in the wilderness of Channel 5.

    Full on write-ups in all the national papers that goes far beyond what we'd receive in the Championship, even though we seemed to be media darlings of sorts and were never short of coverage.

    Contemplating upcoming away trips to the likes of The Emirates and Old Trafford - and not because we've been lucky in a Cup draw.

    Wayne Rooney coming to the Amex in a month or so.

    It all still feels a bit surreal - like I'm watching someone else's football club.
    Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      Couldnt' agree more - was discussing this at the weekend. Wall-to-wall coverage. Want highlights of the game ? No problem, full 30 minute programme up on Sky. Match of the Day. Football Focus special. Getting mentioned all the time on the radio. Watching proper internationals warm up right in front of our seats. Agree it's all a bit surreal - luckily looks like the players are getting to grips with it even if we're not !

      That might have been the case pre-match Saturday against the Baggies, but not at five o'clock. We won, we're here, and we're staying. Up yours Garth Crooks!

      Garth is one of the grumpiest men on TV and for me, that's why I kinda like him. Good player back in the day too.

      The reason I say definitively yes, is that Man City still feels like it was a pre-season game.

      Yes, definitely.

      Was chatting with my young nephew about football the other day. He's an Arsenal fan (shame on his parents, I did my best) and I asked him who they were playing. Kind of, what's going on in the upper echelons of football then? But then had a moment where I realised we were in the same league and whatever the result is in that game it is relevant to us.

      Haven't watched the Premier League for years so it's odd getting to know these teams and things like MOTD again.
