Response to Re: Stay Down

I just don't get how you think another season in this division will prepare us better.
I get where your coming from but think your wrong. The longer we stay here the harder the transition to the prem is going to be.
Football is about finance now and the best way of guaranteeing income is in the premier league.
To put your argument into perspective, consider that the teams coming down will all be armed with bundles of cash from the parachute payments that we will have to contend with again. Also factor in that Wood, Bartley, Janson and Taylor will all be getting itchy feet with Prem teams sniffing about.
Us establishing ourselves in the Premier League again will take more than one season.
We've had years of shit so one or two more won't be any real hardship.
I hope we go up and will live with relegation with the knowledge that we will be better prepared to make a go of it.
