You look at things or ideas for improvement or expansion and say " Not possible" or "fantasy". This may be true at the time of such proposals. However, all the things listed in my first paragraph changed and for the better. Ideas and ambitions should not be dismissed out of hand because they cannot be implemented today. Things and circumstances change, movers and shakers emerge and things change to the point where ideas and ambitions can be realised.
Time will tell which strategy or which ideas will be proved correct.
Well the strategy that keeps being thrown at me is small clubs make small steps forward for small rewards, from that positive start things grow and more interest is generated, ambitions can be raised a level and the strategy continues as the club rises up. Another junior star and another hundred on the gate, until the golden gates of heaven (i.e. Superleague) open for that club.
After 17 years time has already told.
Only the big grand old clubs of league and Union really survive professionalism. The rest cannot and have not grown to any level where they can compete.
Sorry you old dreamer, time has already told.
