Re: Northern Echo - Challenge Facing SAFC
He's spot on. Whilst most level headed fans would be more than happy with an 8th-10th finish this season, beating the Mags and progressing the cups, in the future, we may well find ourselves in a similar position to Everton or in the past Charlton and Bolton (who had lower expectations) where you reach your peak and suddenly 7th every season is no longer satisfying. The cups are the key. Getting to a final, or even better, winning a cup, would be a significant landmark in the club's history, regardless of people's perception of them these days.
