Yes but when they get draft picks it enables them to rebuild are relaunch a shot at the flag in a few years time.

Not just avoid going down only to know that you will be fighting it off the following year.

That really only happens in NBA basketball. In American football/baseball/hockey/etc. one draft pick can't change a team by himself, and it's just not worth the lost revenue and pride to tank an entire season. I would guess the same would be true of soccer as well (if somehow a draft were to be implemented).

It may encourage them, but I don't subscribe to the theory. Carlton are sitting on four wins now with seven games to go. They will win another game if the opportunity presents itself.

I've seen this kid play , and he IS very good , true he is very young I think he's still 17 , but he's already a world champion .

U see in the last Fifa U20 Cup , though Brazil got away very early he scored some really nice goals .

I think he remembers me of a young Ronaldo in his best days , or nowadays he plays like C. Ronaldo , but not like a winger , he can play as a winger , but he's much more like a traditional striker .

Mark my words this kid will soon lead Brazil's attack and be a best world player

Sorry to keep talking about it guys, but I just fail to understand why someone would even bother to barrack for a team like West Ham if they know, year-in year-out that you are only going to be fighting off relegation. And if you do, celebrate. Then realise it's going to be the same again next year. I just don't get it
