Bournemouth’s budget was humongous
Don't you know that Bournemouth are a fairytale who stayed up in the championship and ultimately went up on a shoestring budget and definitely aren't backed by a Russian Billionaire.
I was referring to Bournemouth having stayed up in the PL, not the Champ. And, I never said anything about how they went up. Not sure they have a massive budget in the PL relative to other PL clubs.
Any thoughts on the other teams I mentioned?
Burnley have taken a brick by brick, steady and cautious approach, sticking by the same manager even after relegation. Never betting the farm on staying up and having a plan. Sound like Reading of the last 10 years? No. Not in the slightest.
Cardiff they can't have finished bottom or they'd have been relegated. So that doesn't really mean much.
Huddersfield, building steadily for years and had the great fortune of running into us at Wembley.
You've got to get exceptional cases out of your head. Hoping we'll emulate a 1 in 1000 chance case is pointless. As is hoping we'll achieve the same as a club while we operate in a completely different manner to them. Or that one good year somehow has more meaning than three shit ones where we're a shambles.
Open your eyes. Look at the state we're in.
