It’s nice and simple
The club runs as self sustainable, stands on its own , uses its own income to spend , doesn’t need to rely on a billionaires personal fortune , it should be about who recruits the best , coaches the best , develops their players the best - exactly how the sport used to be for years
And as I said it’s now very sad for the sport when it’s seen that the only way for success is for a club to spend beyond its means and have ti rely on a rich person spending their own money - so it’s not about which club is run the best on and off the pitch but which club has the richest owner
I know which method I prefer all day long.
The club has been running itself, it has been self sustaining, we have been standing on our own & been using our own income to spend, we haven’t relied on JWH millions cos the tight Cnut won’t spend any of it……on us, and yes you are right, it is about who recruits the best, coaches the best & develops their players to be the best, exactly how the sport was and has now moved on, for the worse imo, but the key words are ‘Moved On’,
Doing all the above was all well and good in the good old days of build & conquer, but unfortunately those days are consigned to history, it’s no longer about having the best coach, building a team from scratch, improving what players he has to work with, nurturing young players to become the heroes they look up to,
Think most of us believe in the old way being the best way, but sadly it’s more about how many Millions it takes to outdo the Millions your rival is spending, we’ve already seen a very high bar being raised further with players being bought & sold in the 100’s of Millions, where the f**k will it stop ?
It seems a generation or so ago when £1million drew gasps of air and screams of “for kicking a bag of f***in air” !!!
Ppl say it’s the death knell for football as a sport, they said the same when Trevor Francis went to Forest, so what do we do now then Lall ?
Do we…..continue to not invest enough money and fall further behind those who do…OR do we jump on the band wagon and go against the club’s principles, bite the bullet so to speak so we too can join the party of potential winners of titles & tin ??
Caught between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, the land of hope & opportunity or the land of mediocrity or somewhere in between, right now were the inbetweeners, stuck in transition, we can’t move forward because no money is available, and we won’t be able to either until either FSG sell and F**k off, or we eventually get bankrolled by some hairy arsed Arab in a dick swinging contest with other like minded hairy arses, and a couple of Yanks,
Again Sadly, this Is the only way forward, it’s not how we’d like to do conduct our business but, the financial goalposts have shifted, moved on, and we need to do the same if you want your club, our club to continue making history and winning titles & tin, now isn’t that Nice & Simple??
Hope over Fear !!! 🏴
