I’ve supported Barnsley since 1987, travelling 250 mile round trips every Saturday from 87 to 99 then season tickets and so on after that. My kids are both now avid Barnsley fans. what’s happened over the last few days is unforgivable. It stands against everything that my club is about. It brings sharply into focus what’s gone wrong in football and how every ounce of what made it brilliant has been sucked out of it. It is now drawing on its dying breath. Football is not about balance sheets, AGMs, ROIs and retaining future interests in player fcking sales. Football was, is, should, be about romance, dreams, ecstasy, despair; hopeless optimism. Daniel Stendel embodied all of that. He got it. The fact that Conway et al were prepared to put out that rebarbative and disrespectful statement demonstrates that they just do not -get it. I appreciate that this may seem slightly self indulgent and melodramatic but I just can’t forgive the actions of those in charge and don’t intend to set foot inside Oakwell again until they’ve departed.
