Hatty9 Best case scenario and we some how stay up, What then?
Stan leaves by mutual consent and we get a new manager in realistically how much of an overhaul will there need to be in order to stop the same thing happening next season. I'm assuming there won't be loads of cash and I can't see many of the players we would want to see go getting us much money coming in. Do we then sell our couple of prize assets just to generate the money needed for the changes.
Will a new manager be able to make us a mid table team with what we already have? And if so is that what we would be happy with? I'd grab it now but when it happens that must be the most frustrating thing for a team in the championship to win one lose one and realise by January your season is over.
It's hard to see the perfect future happening with very little money and no obvious manager to take us forward and it seems to me that sooner or later without some sort of intervention relegation will happen.
Well, its a discussion for the Summer. But yes, instead of just moaning, I'd like to see a lot more people expound on their footy manager theme and outline some specific plans and ideas of how we can get promoted to the PL...and stay there. (Assuming that's what we actually want, because last time we were there, there was much gnashing of teeth about all the plastic fans, the soul-less stadiums, PL tix prices, etc). Or whether we are pretty much punching at our weight and are just a Champ club anyway. When we were in PL, quite a few missed the Champ and were saying mid-table Champ was about our level, and that was just fine with them, with a promo run now and again.
