Advisor to the Owner
Yes it is pot calling the kettle black, but you appear to be the pot calling the kettle gold.
As has been stated. They have had nearly two decades in the premier league, they've got the facilities off the back of that and they have still only managed to finish above us once in the last 7 years.
That's embarrassing, not light years ahead of us.
Similarly, over that last 7 years, they've literally brought in 3 players that have cost them more than half a million, in Armstrong, Brereton and Gallagher. The vast vast majority of their signings have been freebies. They've sold Rhodes, Gestede, Cairney (all 3 in the same summer), Armstrong, and I'll give you Hanley and Duffy. I imagine Brereton will go this summer too. That's not Brentford or Brighton's model, no matter how you try and spin it with their DoF and pointless manager, it's basically ours. Again, not light years ahead.
The only aspects on which I'll accept they're light years ahead is their training ground and their youth facilities. But as stated at the start, that's what two decades of premiership money plus a wealthy benefactor who wants to see you achieve success well do for you.
More than welcome to peddle a narrative, but at least ensure it's factual.
What makes JDT a 'pointless' manager? That makes little sense and how is the appointments inferior to Lowe's.
Agreed, light years ahead in terms of youth investment and facilities.
I've not said it's Brighton's or anyone elses model. It's a plan. I haven't seen one from PNE for many a year and neither have you, no matter how you try and dress that up. As said, light years ahead, embarrassing, whatever you want to call it.
