On reflection I wonder if the only point of us reaching the PL. is the money. With our financial resources we will never sustain a prolonged spell in the PL. So if our rightful place in the football hierarchy is 16-26 we will have many more instances of ecstasy followed by agony and humiliation and a rebuild.
Our stadium is too small and our major shareholders although well meaning are paupers in football terms so we rely on our academy and the occasional astute buy to keep the Ferris wheel turning. We are a small mutually funded club seemingly trapped in this cycle of events and in October we start the cycle again.
