In truth Luton Town should not be in the Blue Square Premier and they would not be if the world was fair. Or for that matter, if the authorities, were consistent they might perhaps be in the fortunate position of Watford FC, doing rather nicely in the Championship. STMI read with interest the story on the Hatters News feed on Friday, advising fans that Trust in Luton are writing to the football League asking why Watford are being treated differently.
Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs
But where is there was any justice in life nowadays, or fairness as Nick Clegg put it when he was trying to get the Liberals elected into Government. How short the memories and how close the solidarity amongst the fortunate, who once in position, will not be fair and share the wealth. That would be plain silly would it not akin to turkeys voting for Christmas. Long have STMI championed 3 up 3 down, but lip service apart, no MP’s or Government officials have deemed it important enough for their time.
Justice for Luton hung and for both the hatters and the The BSP perhaps now hangs again, on decisions by the Football League. The docking of 30 points in one season was an affront to sportsmanship in the people’s game, as well as an utter farce on the Leagues part that is coming back to haunt them. STMI wish the Hatters all the best in getting answers as to why Watford appear to have got away scott free, half a decade later.
Of course a point would be nice Tuesday week as well…….. But in all seriousness it would be nice for the League to give Luton some justice, even if it is too late to turn back the clock on a club blighted by an horrendously unsportsmanlike handicap. What the League can do is have a political style 3 line whip in place for the vote on 3 up 3 down in the summer. That would give all in the Blue square Premier a sporting chance to get into the League. Four would be better but 3 would be a good start.
