I think the case is, that SG want's the club to be self sustained .. He doesn't want to feed the club a load of money each season ..  wether it being in the Championship or League One - 

So there are two scenarios .. 

We stay up (by a miracle) and the club has lowered the expences and we might remain a Championship side ... 

Or...

We go down to League 1 and find our level 

It's all about bussiness .. The club must be self sustained .. The league we play in is irrelevant for this matter .. 

The trouble is if we do go down and Covid is still affecting things, it could be a real struggle for division 1 to start up again next season, many clubs just can’t afford to play to empty stadiums, so without tv rights, a lot could go to the wall.

Yep's I believe this season was a gamble by Gibson on saving money and letting our high earners leave this summer then restart building a team. The issues are can we stay up and do you really trust Woodgate to recruit players that will build a squad fit for promotion in the next 2-3 seasons? 

Quite frankly I wouldn't trust Woody to manage a Subbuteo team. 😕

The club will never be able to sustain itself. No chance

Not unless we drop down to non-league and ground share with Billingham Synthonia or something.

Yeah I thought the same. It was the equivalent of picking a player for the first game of the season because he played ok in the last game of the previous season because the gap was so long. 

Woodgate doesn't really need  to explain anything because it was so clear that he got things wrong. 

Let's see if I end up being right!

Hey, my brothers-in-law are champion Subbuteo players, it takes a lot of skill and hard work to become good at it. Don't compare Woodgate to them! 😄

    • 6 of our first team squad are straight from the academy, given there are only 23 players in it, that's not bad. You could arguably count Spence and Wing too, though I wouldn't.
    • An Oxo cube in hot water plus cayenne pepper fixes anything
    • I guess our academy isn't all that great after all. Maybe I'm just naive but I thought one of the main reasons for having an academy was to produce players that could break into the first team. Now obviously, like any recruitment / training process, not EVERYONE is going to make it, but I'd have thought we'd be seeing a few more making the step up to the senior squad.

    • Anyone remember that rapid youth group striker who performed at ridiculous levels for england youth groups up to 17s even forcing his way into Karanka's thoughts at one point? Bradley Fewster. He's currently semi pro at Whitby Town 4 years later, I've said over the past 12 months that Walker is at a critical stage where he'll either absolutely shine out on loan or he'll end up following Fewsters footsteps. Reality of his situation is, whether you think Warnock will 'need' him or not, this is probably the most important season of his career it will determine what level he will be playing at in 4 years time because the youth strikers we have coming through look really good and keeping Ste Walker around an extra season taking up a spot in the 23s if he has a poor season is not something I imagine the club will do. It's like Chapman and Mondal they looked absolute livewires in the UEFA youth league in 16/17 fast forward a few years Junior's spent most of his time in non league and Chapman's spent most of his time sitting in stands or on his couch. This isn't talking down our youngsters it's just the harsh realities of the transition from youth football to senior and from evidence available Walker might have enough there or he might not but 5 sub appearances for us this season wont give us the answers we/him need for his career so sending him out made complete sense for all parties.
