Herbert Chapman


Last quote by Herbert Chapman

We kick off together, let us all run the race from scratch. No buying new players; no getting fresh horses once we have left the post. Clubs have about four months to fit themselves for the race. It should be enough. It is this horrible bogey, this fear of descending into a supposedly lower grade of football, that is at the root of the transfer trouble. Rightly or wrongly, relegation is looked upon as an almost insufferable indignity.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Herbert Chapman came from an article called Relegate half the Premier League? It’s excessive … but not without merit: “At present clubs know when they descend into the lower division that nothing but good luck and good fortune will get them back to the top class. If 11 clubs were to go down the stigma would not be felt nearly so keenly. Clubs would have the comforting satisfaction of knowing that there would be an even chance of climbing back again within 12 months. A club would be very poor indeed which, having failed, did not succeed in getting back to its rightful class in less than three seasons.”.
