Me, I'm just going to take it one day at a time..
they have a very good manager and didnt go up in one season..
norwhich went from 14h to 1st in one season while selling their best players and reducingthe wage bill..
I know they didn't, but I don't believe they spent a lot of money over the two seasons they were in the championship.
thats right-but it took them two-not one.
It's going to take us a few seasons, possibly more depending on finding new investors and I'm alright with that.
Teams are spending just as much in the championship as they would in the prem thanks to that parachute money and we just can't compete at those levels so we're going to have to be intelligent in our scouting and recruitment.
Unless some mega rich Arab decides he wants us as the new Man City, I think the best thing we all can do is prepare for the long haul.
Anything else would be a bonus.
Not sure how possible it is to build long term in the Championship. Lots of teams are coming down with parachute payments and others are losing their best players to premier league teams. Norwich finished mid table, sold their best player, spent next to nowt, then won the league. It's pretty unpredictable.
IF we win the PO final i'd say aim for mid table then look to push on
200m to get top 6 of championship?
I didn't say it took them one??
My point still stands, they did well in their season back last season without splashing the cash and then went up this season. Fantastic effort.
I thought it was Prem, apologies
There exists this morning a similar thread on Charlton Life...is the Prem an ultimate goal? Now we have a discussion, for all we are all looking for is to share our lives by way of a common love, which is a simple parallel to our personal relationships and with that of our children and friends. In addition, the CL Mackems thread is full of respectful comments confirming what I posted earlier that we are indeed one big football family. Our Saturday get together with our team and our mates is our safety valve, win or lose a neccersary need has been fulfilled. For a hundred years this was our beautiful game, then sky came along and convinced you that if your team was not in the Prem you should hang your head in shame. There is no meaning to life as you cannot ask a question of maths, but there is a purpose "Love your fellow man and look after the planet that sustains you" Translated...whatever your passions, they are still your passions...do not let anyone tell you they have more life satisfaction because their club bought the league title. Division one with unity of club, players and fans gets my vote every time over Man City and the like.
Don't be frightened of love and truth...they are the reasons for my equilibrium.
As long as we don't bankrupt the club (again!) in the process.
Or in attempting to stay there.
Cut our cloth accordingly.
It's a bit early to be on the glue already.
Think you’re on the wrong forum fella.
I'm kind of universal so tend to fit on any forum
Bit philosophical for the folk of the SMB
Hay man mods get this nonsense thread deleted.
Then champions league in two years time
I think we'll need a good few seasons to build and establish the squad before we can even consider promotion to the Prem again, IF we get promotion that is...
Money has definitely ruined top flight football, every Premier League player is a millionaire now due to the high wages but you can't deny the fact having 4 English teams in European cup finals is a bit special.
