  1. Still on target to survive. 15th still very realistic ! Could prove to be an outstanding season.
  2. Alternatively you could argue we have been run very well in recent years. Minimum outlay and staying up means the money keeps rolling in! As long as we stay up, I am sure that is all that matters. I said once before if our owner was offered a guaranteed 17th for the next 10 years with little financial risk, the deal would be made. It is is risky, but our ambition is to stay up, nothing more and nothing less.
  3. You are correct, but then it is easy to say with hindsight. You weren't saying it 4 or 5 years ago and were only to pleased to condemn me when I predicted exactly our present predicament for the reasons above.
  4. TBH, there is more chance that he walks than is sacked and I wouldn't blame him. He has not had the financial backing he was probably promised.
  5. We did indeed. But the real problem came when we were still on a high. The complacency and arrogance was breathtaking, something that I commented on more than one occasion. People even believed we could never get relegated. I and Alpine were lambasted for even suggesting that if things didn't change we would be fighting relegation. On top of this we were sold to an owner who had no intention of investing. We continued to sell our best assets and because we would not pay the current wage rates a could not attract the best players. As our star began to fade the problem was only exacerbated. I am not worried about playing in the Championship, but I am concerned that we do not have the money to survive the drop and an owner who is likely to let us wither in the wind.
  6. We have been set up as a team with an ambition to finish between 15th and 17th and this plan started taking place some years ago. It is risky and can alienate the fans but has so far been successful with the cash coming in with the minimum outlay. A good business model. The model also worked on the principle of the promotion of at least two weaker teams. Villa and Sheffield might confound this and we have to hope that their place is taken by Norwich, Watford and Newcastle.

  8. We are a bottom 6 club whose idea of success is to finish in the top 3 of the bottom 6. I am surprised that so many have taken so long to realise.
  9. Before the season started I predicted 15th. I stand by my prediction.
  10. Some nice supporting comments from some users again.
  11. They are so insignificant that people didn't even notice.
