With the play-offs now gone (almost) and lots of unrealistic posts on which players or managers we should looking to sign. I was reminded of a conversation I had with a fellow shrimper last week.

I'm not a stats man but roughly we have been around for 110 years and spent all but 7 seasons in the lower 2 divisions and never beaten a top club in the FA cup.

Many of you are old enough to have stood in that 31,000 crowd v Liverpool. So the my question......Is there another team that has ever had that sort of attendance and achieved so little. Can't think of any in Britain, so what about Europe and dare I say the rest of the world.
