So glad we're in the prem and have been for the last few years with short making sure our business is successful and we're no longer a regional club with the impending sponsorship deals with twulow and adidas (mooted like).
Plus the fact we have the stadium and the academy in place in puts us in a good place compared to most other clubs such as everton.
The likes of sheff wed, Leeds, boro, sheff united, Coventry, brum etc are in a bad place in terms of being left behind. It could so easily have been us.
We missed out in the wilderness in the 1960's onwards and I don't think our reputation as a top top club in the uk has ever recovered and it may never but had we stayed at the top challenging and maybe having the likes of Clough as manager we could have been up there with the likes of arsenal, Liverpool etc and their international reputations.
Hopefully due to short, Quinn and O'neill we won't miss out on being in the elite for the next 20-30 year. Optimistic
