They’ve just appointed Parkinson as manager. Hardly long term planning there.You say that as though Donald and Charlie had this as an option. They didn't/don't.
The big problem here is that our fans have no concept of what a long-term project entails. They had to strip the club back to be sustainable financially. From there, they were in a good position to secure investment.
After a very long process, they have finally secured the investment. It's not their fault that the fans demand instant success. The fans hounded out Jack Ross because they thought we had a divine right to win every week. People have been looking at the shirts and the badge rather than the players faces. We do not have the best squad in the league.
There are probably fans on here that think that the investment into the scouting network will bear instant fruit. Expecting us to have targets in mind for January already. This was always going to be a long rebuild. The big problem now is trying to instill patience into one of the most impatient and demanding fanbases in the league.
