Not my cup of cake
A stunning 11 points
i hope that's the case but at the moment we would struggle in the championship. our defence is opened so easily. we cant string 2 passes together & there's just no effort. we are bad but we aren't as bad as this. in hindsight we've never recovered from Newcastle. because we played Everton we were fantastic. 2nd half of wolves was premier league quality. but 7 of the last 8 1st halfs have been woefulSame old problem that a number of relegated premier league squads face. You come down, and with parachute payments added on, you can retain most of your players and recruit some more and end up with a squad that's too good for the Championship but not good enough for the Prem.
I doubt Pep would keep you up without huge investement in January and a big turn around.
You'll be back in the Championship top six next year with relative ease and back in the Prem the year after.
I'd disagree a bit on this, I do think it's possible but most clubs don't attempt it because they have owners willling to keep pumping the cash in.because as much id like football to be run where they are break even, you have to stop this eutopia as reality is you cannot have a profitable successful football club. its 1 or the other
luton are the exception, but in sport if you decide to do the correct thing & be sustainable, youve got a mountain to climb when your 40m behind your rivals & until the EFL but a stop to it.I'd disagree a bit on this, I do think it's possible but most clubs don't attempt it because they have owners willling to keep pumping the cash in.
Funny enough, I was having this conversation on the Bristol City Forum where people were prasing our Chairman for pumping cash in to the club for 20 years. I pointed out that we shouldn't regard this as a success it means that the business model is all wrong. If you had a ship that kept leaking water, you wouldn't praise the owners for running it for 20 years without fixing the problem.
With Reading joining the ranks of clubs to be issued a winding up order this weekend, there are so many teams living on the edge.
