    • I don't know how I'd forgotten just how dodgy Monk was, hahah.
    • Well we aren’t a club that can take any kind of moral high ground in transfer deals after we appoint managers who get paid on both ends  of transfer deals by agents.   Only deal with their own agents to ensure they get cash.  Falsely inflate prices to get themselves a bigger cut. One of our ex managers previous chairman’s refused to sanction a sale when they found out the replacements would make the manager a couple of million under the table.
    • I remember when football was a sport too, but it’s not any more, it’s an entertainment business, where games are played for the sake of   TV schedules, currently in empty stadiums!    I’d love a lot of things to go back to how they were in the 80’s but capitalism has destroyed everything it’s touched. I’m happy to stick where we are as a team, I loathe the Premier League and VAR, but many want to get back up there and the only way I can see that happening is with some sort of ambition and a plan, which I fear the current owner lacks. 
    • I think the most important decision the owner can make is the manager, and as long as a club is financially stable, the owner doesn't play that much of a part beyond financing signings. Gibson has made some very poor appointments in the past 15 years. Southgate, Strachan, Monk, Agnew, Woodgate were all terrible appointments. Karanka was a big success. I'd buck the popular opinion and say that Pulis didn't do too badly here, that 6 game losing run blew it, and some of those losses were down to shocking refereeing decisions. Flip one and we'd have been in the play-offs. Warnock saved us last season, and has done okay this season.
    • Swansea are 4th, their "long term strategy" is only a few years old, and I'm not sure it was deliberate, they got relegated after repeated poor managerial choices (what was Bob Bradley about?), had a complete fire sale and were expected to struggle in the bottom half of the table last season but snuck in to the play-offs against the odds after an excellent run. I spoke to Swansea fans who were genuinely fearful of a double relegation at the start of last season. Watford are 3rd, and they don't know the meaning of long term planning. I don't disagree that a long term plan is preferable, whatever the style is, and it's irritating that it was given lipservice at the start of last season and immediately abandoned.
