He is still at Fulham and Celtic right? This man is not a magician, far from it. He got lucky with Lambert who masterminded our return to the promise land. The debt being repaid was solely down to him from the on field success we enjoyed. He has done well with Alex Neil but it is early days. We were best team and squad in league last year and should of gone up. It''s not like we went from League One to Premier League in successive seasons like under Lambert, that was pure genius. For all the successes there has been failures. He failed to keep the best manager we ever had, who I can only believe feels he was not supported as he certainly didn''t go to Villa for an endless transfer budget. The he appointed an underwhelming Chris Hugton who lets face it no one was excited about and arguably we played the worst and most negative since Hamilton''s reign. What was worrying was the failure to act quicker by sacking him when it was clearly we were nailed on to go down. We had him far too long and then in the most bizzare of circumstances we appointed Neil Adams which was a pure unspeculated gamble. From his 5 games to try and rescue us he had an impossible challenge but none the less we allegedly scouted Europe for the best, were told a new manager be announced within a week yet it took weeks for confirmation that in fact we had the best in Neil Adams. We have had the Joe Royle calamity, the calamity to send a Championship rival our best defender in Seb Bassong. Can you really imagine Daniel Levy or Jeremy Peace sanctioning such a deal, it is the equivalent of loaning John Terry to Man City, it would and never should happen. The scout appointments have been very uninspiring, the network almost does not exist based on current signings. The Football Board has been laughable. We spend £9m on Ricky and that appears to make us scared every to spend money again. Where was the due diligence on this signing. Did our chief scout really think someone as lightweight as him would set the Premier League alight with so little pace. This transfer window again has been farcical, we are the embarrassment of the tabloids and broadsheets with comical pursuits of Robbie Brady making £2m initial bids. We then reject a £7m deadline pursuit from Bournemouth for Grabban who has made it perfectly clearly he wants out. Already suspended how does a team, a player and more importantly the fans really get passed this. This is not the Wayne Rooney story of years ago who clearly wanted more money, this is a player who acted in the most unprofessional way imaginable. We have no striker in other than MBokani but with one up front will Grabban really return to the fold ahead of MBokani, Jerome then Hooper and we always have Lafferty if needed. The bids reported by Sky for Naismith, Gayle, Walters and then interest for Murray show blind panic and no cohesive it definitive approach. We now have Bassonn, Martin (playing his career at right back until recent) and the enigma that is Ryan Bennett at centre back in a defence that is proven to leak goals and has already been relegated. We have had all summer to rectify our obvious priority. Then unexplainable we sell Bradley Johnson out of no where, our player of the season who scored 15 goals last season. Goals like this are hard to come by. Bradley is a true professional who gave his all for the club. Hughton suffocated everyone offensively but Bradley worked hard and has ended end product for a man in his peak. First game was not great but how can we be so flippant to disregard him after that one game, it''s saddening and £6m does not go far as we know these days, blimey Jacob Butterfield was £4m and is not a patch on our midfield warrior. I only want the best for this club but am deeply worried and think McNally is culpable for a lot of this, had we acted sooner arguably we would of not been in Championship last season. In addition this man is getting richer and richer with insane bonuses while using fans as cash cows, increasing ticket prices, increasing memberships, having a one kit for one season policy, bringing three kits out which are all yellow and green which again makes a mockery of the club. The ability to hand plastics memberships for one game to go to play-off shows the mercenary nature of him.
