'You can have a £10m striker or a new training ground.'
We have neither. If youre happy with the owner of your team taking the piss out of you so he can build some houses then so be it, unfortunately most of us arent that gullible.
All of our local rivals have had stints in the prem. And before you come up with the predictable 'well look at Bolton/ Wigan now.' All clubs experience peaks and troughs, unless wiped fully out of existence, the life of a football club is cyclical.
Blackburn's peak was winning the Premier League, Wigan's peak was winning the FA Cup, Bolton's Peak was the knockout stages of the UEFA Cup, Wigan's peak was winning the FA Cup, PNE's peak was finishing 7th in the second division. Forgive me for not being too grateful for that.
You aren’t gullible? People haven’t to offend you with ‘the predictable look at Bolton Wigan now’?
Perhaps you haven’t noticed the list gets longer each year? The inconvenient truth you seek to ridicule now includes Hull City of course, and presumably Bury just don’t matter? You may also note that the ‘peaks’ you mention were whilst the clubs you mention were owned by local benefactors! You may also note they plunged into their current troughs following sales to dodgy owners!
One day, you may get your way and TH’s ownership will be ended by a smiling Trojan horse consortium from somewhere in the Far East with promises of strikers and premier league and cups and champions leagues and training complexes and......anything else you non gullible types want to hear before - at best - running us into the ground amid plastic pigs on the pitch protests OR -at worst - laundering millions through the club and pissing off back into the night.
The life of a football club is ‘cyclical’ you say? Maybe in the past but it now depends on who it sells it’s soul to. Then again as you are an ‘advisor to the owner’ we will be protected by your lack of gullibility won’t we?
