And if we have a good run of results your fox may be shot!Riddler knew exactly how much he had been allocated by the family to bring in players. He should have made sure his priority was a forward and not rely on Archer coming back.
He doesn't have a big budget but his negotiating skills appear to be close to nil.
Talk at beginning of season was of all positions having 2 players per place. Then it became just 4 players, then 2, followed closely by "we've run out of money"'.
OK family don't invest enough (youth and priorities spring to mind) but surely the one constant is the Riddler. What advise is he giving his bosses. I bet it's not a detailed probable minimum investment or an explanation as to why he wastes so much of their money.
There isn't currently any real call for change amongst fans but if we have a run of bad results after the January window I can see a mass exodus of fans especially those who have never known first division/premiership football
As usual, I don't think its particularly valid to moan about someone else not putting their money into a loss making business when there is a sketchy chance of any return at best.
We can moan about how they go about spending the money they do put in, we can moan about the lack of an apparent strategy or plan and we can moan about the cavalier and disrespectful way they sometimes treat fans.
Yup, I'm glad people are cottoning on. Ultimately this is only going one way.In fact if they are to make us self sustaining as has been reported then we are off to L1.

The last couple of results give me a bit more hope holding out for this season. Another window or two like the last (which I entirely expect) and we know where its going to end up eventually.

Owners sticking their noses in on players and it goes tits up.... Who would have thunk it?
I've no idea whose really at fault but even an idiot like me knows bringing in 22 players is lunacy............. Okay, I'm simple but how about letting the lads that got you up have a stab at it and then building/improving on weak positions?..........
Some clubs deserve everything that they get..
