Not intended to be a serious question at this stage, but as we type in our views on the your say page, I note we can peruse the premier league table on the right hand side of the page. How marvelously useful this is in assessing the progress of our club.
Obviously not but we are at least moving in that direction. Putting the club up for sale took all momentum out of the club and we just stagnated whilst we waited for a new buyer. Undefeated right now but that could easily be followed by 5 straight defeats as a lot have said this will be a rollercoaster ride.
DvW – you said ‘when’ and not ‘if’ – but I have to admit that at this stage I share your optimism. I can’t remember being this excited about our prospects for years. We’ve actually SPENT DECENT MONEY ON PLAYERS.
Manzi- that was not an accident, well spotted as I did in fact initially write ‘if/when’ but I changed it because for me it will be when. I don’t say this because I have unfaltering belief in Fosun’s love for the club, I say this because they are an investment company. Fact is I may not know much about football finance but I do know that the ONLY way they get a return on investment will be WHEN we make it to the promise land! I honestly think that this years spending spree was them being conservative for the first season cause of their late arrival. Now I’m not gonna sit here and say the future only holds success because its never that simple but I do feel fairly certain that we WILL get to the Prem, what happens after that is anyones guess mind. With that though we probs won’t do it this season as theres just too much to settle (a whole new team in fact) but think we should be in good shape for a serious crack next year!
