I know what you're saying. I've said on here before we can't go on using Hereford as the point of reference for absolutely everything, and as you've said later we've a whole generation of fans who weren't even born then. However it IS a huge part of our history though, so it's understandable that it is brought up quite often.It annoys me every time we are on the box we still have to have the Hereford game and Withdean mentioned by commentators after six seasons of PL football. It feels to me like we will never be taken seriously and will always be just visiting the top flight.
Having said that I do think it's fading a bit. That piece for example never mentioned Hereford, Gillingham, Withdean, etc once. Ten minutes and all the talk was about the recent past and the future. It did however contain my new gripe - people wondering how long we can hold onto our stars for. The piece is only a few minutes old and already they're speculating if De Zerbi is the next Man City manager, and if not what other clubs should he move to next in preparation?
Yes yes I know they all do it; we're a small club and it's only natural that people should speculate, it just grinds my gears a bit that it always seems to be mentioned. So if we can have a ten minute piece that doesn't go on about Hereford and Withdean, and doesn't speculate on where De Zerbi, Mitoma, etc will go next I'll be happy!
