Response to Re: Dog wankers.
Fuck me the last time these lot were in the top division we were in our pomp! Clarke, Jones, Giles et al. That season we were putting 7 past The Saints. Pity we managed to screw up The Double at Wolves (48 hrs after the Cup Final). Hudds deserve their moment of glory, it puts to bed all that 'in yer cup final' bollocks. On paper we might be the bigger club but that's about it. We probably lost Monk because the owners didn't have the bollocks to offer him a 3- year contract, or support him during the January transfer window. Big clubs seize opportunities, the don't languish in The Championship and League 1 for 12 years. Newcastle and West Ham have both been down but for a single season only.
We've still got a 'corner shop' mentality, that's why it doesn't take much for the likes of Monk and others (Taylor, Bartram) who have one good season to walk away from this club, there is nothing that is attractive about us, we don't even own our own training complex.
Hudds' promotion didn't happen just by chance. They identified a manager supported him, this was after sacking Chris Powell who did quite well, even if they go straight back down they'll be £100M richer. Our shitty board could learn a few things from them in terms of planning and ambition.
