TBH I think a lot of them would of preferred us to stay up. Their hatred of Ipswich and Wycombe is far stronger than their Essex bretheren (cue negative rep!)

Maybe they're not so c***y as to come on here extracting the urine? Or maybe they're just too busy enjoying the company of sheep? :D

Well said MK I dont have a problem with them either and the lack of p*ss take surely means that they're sorry to see us go. Can imagine if our positions had been recversed what their board (do they have one?) would have looked like. I truly hope they make the play offs and have their moment of glory because being realistic a club their size will eventually be joining us in div 1 before long.

I think the general sentiment is that we would have preferred you to stay up as the derby games are the ones that make the season have a bit of added edge. This year's been great with four or five local sides, if only for the cut down on travelling compared to previous seasons.

Aside from one thread last weekend, there hasn't really been a great deal this week - I think a lot of people would have preferred to keep the games in the fixture list.

Good luck next season, I think it's going to be an interesting season for both teams.

I agree, it seems that the bitterness and hatred seems to be a bit one sided (like the attitude of some fans towards West Ham).

Yes we are still about guys but I for one did not want to post and sound like I was gloating that you boys are relegated. I would far rather you had stayed up and we could have shown the rest of the division that Essex Championship football is alive and well. Yes like you we have a laugh when our local derby opponents get a beating at the hands of another club, but losing you after just a couple of seasons of us playing in the same league is not something I look forward to.
I am sure you guys will give it a good go next season and will be up there slugging it out near the top, but we could well find it much tougher next season, I just hope we dont pass each other in the opposite direction in 12 months time :eek:

Not really one for gloating myself, except about beating you. I don't really take any pleasure in you going down, and we had a big disappointment last week after being 1-0 up and dreaming of Wembley, so we were more bothered about that really.

Gotta love the comments about Iwelumo and Cureton scoring practically all our goals - well yes, they're the strikers. The general feeling is that we'll lose Iwelumo but keep Cureton, so I wouldn't be writing us off just yet.
